Don’t mind him as a commonpotator, where his love for the game is very evident, and his enthusiasm obvious. Roaming Brian is cringe worthy however, and has me reaching for the remote to change channels as soon as he comes on. Stick to calling the games.


#4294

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.

MAGISTERIAL

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?”


#4297

There are good commentators, and there are poor commentators.

Then there’s 50 feet of crap.

And then there’s BT.


#4298

Brain Taylor should be fired into the sun. Utter mouth breating troglodyte.


#4299

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


#4300

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


#4301

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


#4302

You mustn’t listen to a lot of South American futbol commentary then.


#4303

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.


#4305

I like BT.


#4306

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?


#4307

We only make bold decisions like that in Elimination Finals…


#4308

I had an Italian teacher that argued with me about how my Italian surname should be pronounced.


#4309

Raz out for a few weeks. Quad. F…


#4310

Wheres that coming from?


#4311

SEN reported a moment ago


#4312

Lol. Bloke is made of tissue paper.
Pack her up folks, we’re done.
