#13 Orazio "Call me injured" Fantasia

Australian commentary is cringeworthy in general.

I watch a lot of soccer and they are far more professional. They just call the game without using all the theatrics.

Basketball they use theatrics a lot more but it suits the game and it comes off as entertaining.

Imagine BT commentating the 2nd leg of Barca v Liverpool at Anfield. “THEY’RE GOING NAR-NARS IN THE KOP!!! DI-VOCK OOOOOOO-RIIIIIIIIIII-GIIIIIIIIIII with the right foot curler!! WHAT WAS GOING ON THERE IN THE BRAIN DEPARTMENT IN THE BARCA DEFENCE?”

There are good commentators, and there are poor commentators.

Then there’s 50 feet of crap.

And then there’s BT.

The Essendon cannon is full. Will need another one for “others”.

Also a regular cannon wouldn’t fit him. Need a 3XL cannon I would have thought

I’m sure i could find an appropriately sized cannon.

Haha, yeah I don’t but I have seen a fair few youtube videos of goals being scored.

Makes BT sound like a choir boy :joy:

The thing is, if it’s actually difficult to pronounce correctly it’s one thing (e.g. some Polish names and other Italian names). However when it’s actually easy and someone tells you how it’s pronounced, you’re just being pig-headeded. I’ve always had this issue, and whilst I don’t expect people to know how to say my name, if someone gives me this “we’re in Australia ■■■■” i’ll certainly be letting them know about it.

It’s easy to say “Richardo” instead of “Riccardo”, “Fanta-sia” instead of “Fan-taysia”. “Carachella”, instead of “Cara-sella”. “Tomich” instead of “Tomik” is another one, but they stupidly insisted on using incorrect pronunciation of their own surname in Australia.

What are you talking about? Just because they were bombing it long to him when he’s got one of the best KPD’s on him doesn’t mean it was garbage delivery. He will never be a Davey level CHF. Perhaps try him in the ruck?
