And the Premiership. Awful stuff but miraculously seems to come across well on the TV. Maybe it's something to do with the sheer amount of bollocks pundiitry that can be shoe horned into a sports programme that improves it's TV value? See also golf.


As usual, you're in the minority...

Yup. It's nice not being a drone. And it's interesting how often the majority are easily misled.

Really? I'd say that's a good word to describe you.

It would be fascinating (well maybe thats putting it a bit strongly for some) to see and hear a televised game documentary style, with just the images of the game, shot from pitch side, no commentary and the audio and close ups of the crowd from different sections of the ground. Maybe the novelty would wear thin, and of course it would be impossible to broadcast but I'd love to see it.....armchair voyeur?....maybe.... :-\

Was watching some of the tennis last night and it's excellent how for the vast majority of the play there is no commentary - they just let the players do their thing, and you get the crowd and the atmosphere over perfectly. Makes watching it on TV a whole lot more pleasurable, and why for instance football is so bloody awful on telly with the endless twattery chat going on over the game. Yes - we can see what's happening thanks: shut the feck up. :)

Similar to the cricket in many ways, the really good commentators like Atherton and Benaud say very little, but say it at the right time and its very insightful. Many commentators see it more as a vehicle for themselves rather than the game

A good football commentator will tend to vicariously express what you (and, say, a bar full of viewers) are thinking in a succint and entertaining way, and I think most of them do a decent job in this regard and add to the experience.  It's the co-commentators who are often infuriatingly poor, with their statements of the bleeding obvious, incoherent, unnecessary cant and alarmingly frequent and bizarre misreadings of the happenings on the pitch (*cough*Townsend*cough*).
