I'm really missing Eloise Soiher on Fox Sports News. She's hot and her inability to read an auto-cue made her a prime candidate for something worthy of this thread.

Not sure of her name, but the chick who does traffic/news on SEN can barely pronounce anything correctly.
She reported on someone getting a Noble Prize the other day, instead of Nobel.

Commentators calling kicks balls. Christ it’s ridiculous. James Brayshaw last the worst offender. When has a short or long kick become medical or wood tool terms. Seriously it’s either a long or a short kick
I've got to the stage where I turn the commentary down to below the level where I can hear what they are blathering. Brayshaw is quickly reaching Derwayne levels of unbearableness.

Twice tonight I’ve heard Brayshaw saying Player X is Bodylining the ball. It’s not cricket numbnuts ya flog

Can't believe the amount of times he says 'footy', 'footy club', 'look' (e.g. 'they get another look at goal'), 'extraordinary', 'ability' and 'real'. Nothing wrong with these words in isolation, but you don't need to hear them 100 times a game. Lots of repetitive words, without much substance in his commentary.
