Random tangent, but you know what I thought was absolutely brilliant? One of the pommy commentators having a conversation with a woman in the stands during the cricket last night, via the radio. She had the earpiece on listening to the commentary, and during a break in play she ended up on the big screen, and the commentator started asking her questions and she was responding with simple gestures. Asked her how she thought England should deal with Steve Smith and she mimed cutting one of her legs off.Yep I hate the "entertainment"
Rather just talk to ppl I'm there with or complain about umpiring on bigfooty
It is pretty cringe I agreeI agree with the first part of your statement, she is just doing the job that she is asked to do. As far as the next part goes I really hope not as I don't See the necessity for anyone to be doing that job.
No amount of attempts to 'gee up' the crowd will achieve anything when your team is being smashed and when it is doing well it's unnecessary as the crowd will be pumped up any way.
Either way it's not needed and only serves as an annoyance.
I will never understand the obsession with Americanising the game. We aren't American, we are Aussies, we don't respond to the same stuff as they do. Our game is unique, we don't need to take the lead from any other football codes.
Let's celebrate the differences rather than try to morph into them.
I like the natural atmosphere at games, that's all I need.
Poor Murf can't even afford a new pair of jeans, give him a pay rise!
