Just heard a commentator (Simon Doull?) at the NZ v S. Africa cricket match say, "The tension... you can cut a knife with it". Huh?

Last year when we played Pakistan in cricket, one of the commentators said something like 'the best Pakistan can hope for now is rain' it was about the time of serious floods there last summer

I must have been at a loose end as I watched and listened to Andy Townsend's summation of the Stoke v West Ham QF last night. He praised Stoke and said they went about their business in an honest manner.
This was immediately followed by clips showing their goals - Huth's free header from a Delap throw when Upson couldn't get close to him because Walters impeded his path with no intent to play the ball himself, then Huth pulled Hitzlsperger out of the wall for Higginbotham to fire through the gap and score the winner. Between these, he also featured a blatant dive from Etherington to earn a penalty which he missed but none the less........
Either the definition of the word "honest" has changed, or Townsend's a complete twat. Answers on a postcard..............

It's official - Ray Wilkins is now senile. On a number of occasions at 3-0 down last night, he commented as Spurs cleared to give Real another corner - "Spurs are okay with these; they can defend corners no problem, it's when they run at them there are problems".
That would be apart from when Madrid scored their first and second goals then, both from corners.

And none of the learned panel actually said that Spurs were pants, even allowing for the fact that they were down to ten for most of the game. Jermaine Jenas gave possibly the worst performance I've ever seen from an England international player.

I agree with both these statements. We were out of our depth. Still, if someone had said to me this time last year that we'd get tonked by Real Madrid in the Champions league quarter final I'd have told them they're nuts.

It'll never happen again and as soon as Rednapp becomes England manager we'll sink back to mid table mediocrity. But it was nice while it lasted.

Re: [UKPunk] Sports presenters mistakes [In reply to] Can't Post or

Watching the golf this afternoon one of the commentators made a major faux-pas as they were waxing lyrical about Darren Clarke being in contention.

First commentator: "With the recent successes of Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell, should Clarke go on to win the tournament then perhaps Northern Ireland should retire."

The second commentator then replied "Maybe they will stop killing each other"

Eerie silence, and 30 minutes later an apology.

The comment that annoys me most is when a team has won 1-0 (or 2-0, etc) away from home in a two-legged competition and commentators talk about "the vital away goal", when in fact the only team that can now win on away goals is the team that's just lost!

Yes, but the game was abandoned due to the hot butter ruining the subbuteo pitch. Tongue

Heard it too, and that's the confusion the "commercial league names" of the two leagues will cause to people who
  1. don't do their research properly
  2. don't know what they're talking about
Not sure which category to put the commentator in. Probably the research section.



Northwood, Threave Rovers, Arsenal, Rangers (the real ones, NOT qpr),Watford, Rochdale, queen of the south and a few others.

Re: [blackdouglas] Sports presenters mistakes [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I detest lazy journalism, partly because they're getting paid to something I'd give my right hand to be a position to, and we've had lots before during and after Ireland's play-off in Estonia. And no doubt it will still go on till the tie is wrapped up. " The 6th attempt to win a play-off" etc " has resulted in 4 previous defeats...".

Er, no. France for the 2010 WC, Turkey for Euro 2000, Belgium for WC 1998, Holland for Euro 96 with the solitary success against Iran for WC 2002. And one other.......

Perhaps the FAI are too embarrassed to recall the shenanigans of 1965, but the journo's shouldn't be - when the powers that be settled for pots of cash rather than a better chance of qualifying for WC 1966 and we lost a play-off to Spain 1-0 in Paris.

Re: [buncranaboy] Sports presenters mistakes [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

It annoys me when cricket commentators say the 2nd new ball is due after 80 overs. Wrong. It is the new ball, not the 2nd new ball. That would be due after 160 overs. Admittedly, the game starts off with A new ball, but it is not THE new ball. It is just the ball. Or am I just talking a load of balls?

Technically its is the 2nd new ball - the one used at the start of the innings being the first. It is the first replacement new ball (but necessarily the first replacement ball).

Re: [Red Adder] Sports presenters mistakes [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I think the word "new" is being used in different contexts. The first ball is new because it is the first occurence, in other words there wasn't another ball previous to it. The second ball is new because it replaces the first ball. So perhaps we should call it the new new ball! My coat, hat and shoes are firmly on, and I am leaving the building...
