Presenter on the WDO Darts from Frimley having just presented the Runner Up Tony O`Shea a cheque for £30000 turned to the new champ and said and now a Cheque for One Thousand Pounds, He must have felt the daggers as he quickly corrected himself to say a Cheque for One Hundred Thousand Pounds. A bit of a difference there. Crazy

Sounds sort of reasonable to me. This round is a race to 6 after all

Both? Could there be a circumstance where one player needed only one?

Of course, then the score would have been 5-4 or something.

I think you're being mischievous. At 4-4, could one player need one frame and the other need two? Only if snooker introduced handicaps – or had group matches.

Perhaps BBC presenters and reporters don't know the meaning the word 'both'. Half-an-hour ago, in previewing today's Heineken Cup group matches, we were told that 'Both A or B' could go through when he clearly meant only one of the two teams.

I'm guessing that it is because both players can't score two more, it must be one or the other. I suppose "either" would be better grammar.

No, both can't score two more, but both do *need* two more. It was gramatically and facutally correct as far as I can see.

During Sky Sports coverage of Real Madrid v Barcelona, Copa del Rey semi final, Commentator Rob Palmer informed us that ''Jose Mourinho is looking to win the Champions League with Real Madrid this season, adding to the wins he has had with MilanCrazy and Porto in the competition''.

Sky last nite - commentating on the Norwich Spurs game. The player covering the match in the studio said Norwich dominated the match and Spurs scored against the run of play. Why then after the final whistle did the studio anchorman say Spurs had been held by Norwich!!!!

An unusual mistake for the commentator of St.Johnstone v.Aberdeen. Nigel Hasselbaink was playing for Saints and there is transfer speculation about him.
So the commentator made a weak joke about 'Making plans for Nigel' then explained this to his puzzled co-comentator by saying it was a song by Elvis Costello.
To give credit to ESPN one of the back-room boys let him know it was actually XTC, and he apologised for this gaffe.

During the Radio5Live Commentary of the Brentford v Chelsea game on Sunday Mike Ingham, whilst discussing Chelsea's recent run of success in the FA Cup said that their last outright defeat in the competition was against Barnsley in 2008 under Luiz Felipe Scolari.

Avram Grant was the 'manager' at the time, Scolari was appointed in the summer & presided over 3 FA Cup ties against Southend United and Ipswich Town before being sacked shortly before the 5th round tie at Watford

MOTD last night, Chelsea v. Wigan.

Wigan included Franco di Santo, who was on Chelsea's books 2008-10 but played only eight times.

Di Santo had a shot saved, Wigan kept the attack going and the player won a corner. Dear Old Motty gave us this gem: "Di Santo, who never scored here in his spell with Chelsea, threatened to do the same for the opposition."

Well he only scored in Pre-season friendlies and reserve matches for Chelsea, so I don't think I'd be too hard on Motty

Not necessarily a mistake depending on your point of view but yesterday reporters at both MK Dons v Barnsley and AFC Wimbledon v Bradford City managed to say x years ago this was a Premier League match.

... and in the same vein, the 5Live reporter at MKD stated that this was the first time they've reached the 5th round of the FA Cup.

BBC TV Breakfast sports news. Barcelona are the first side to overcome a two goal first leg deficit in the Champions League.
I take it that should have qualifications, or that BATE Borisov really do not count for some reason I do not understand?
And of course, this is part of the no football prior to 1992 record list.

Not the first time BBC are having to be brought up on this charge, last season they tried to claim Munich were the 1st side to play the major Euro Final in their own stadium. Even I dredged this lot up,
  • Real Madrid 56-57,
  • Inter Milan 63-64,
  • Roma 83-84.




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

Barcelona have twice come back to win (on penalties) after a 3-0 defeat. They did this against Ipswich Town and Gothenburg.
Ipswich was in the UEFA or Cup Winners Cup, but Gothenburg was in the European Cup Semi-Final of 1986. A substitute called Pichi Alonso got all 3 goals.
Never heard of him before or since.
I think Real Madrid came back from 4-1 down against Derby in the 1975-6 European Cup. Think it was 5-1 in the Bernabeu.
Coming back from 2-0 down is not the same as coming back from say 3-1 down when you have the option of winning on away goals.
What were the details of BATE Borisov's comeback?
