Commentary commentary

Post by Lee on Fri Apr 06, 2018 8:02 am

A thread for anything about media coverage. The good, the not so good, the quirky, what you'd like to change, etc.

My 2 sayings by commentators that I'd like to see go:

"On the other side of the break". I think they mean 'after'.

"Before we let you go": The interviewee is in detention?

The first one is obsessively common on "The Project".
Carrie Bickmore loves it.

So long as we do not get a WOWEE or "Did You See That" from a radio commentator I'm happy.

From the Digital Pass coverage:

- I'd like to see Kenny Karpany's name pronounced 'Karpany' instead of 'Karpanay'.
- And none of the crap puns on players' names. e.g 'A noble effort' referring to John Noble. Brilliant.

On a similar theme ... personally I hate the term "quarterback" being used in Aussie Rules.

One difference is that goalkeeper has been used for over 100 years in Australian Rules reporting. Go to many of the reports of games at the end of the 19th century there are references to goalkeeper. In fact the term goalkeeper used to be used a lot more pre second World War than it has been used since.

Given how onesided the norths west game was as a westies supporter i felt that the commentary team did a great call and are to be congratulated

From the North v West game, the SANFL Digital Pass guys should be aware their between-quarter private conversations were broadcast.

Yep. For the most candid interview with Michael Virgin post-North-sacking, listen at the quarter time break. Hilarious listening.

Was he sacked? I have heard so many conflicting stories. What did Michael say?

My all time "makes me want to throw a brick at the TV" comment is when AFL callers say "his first goal in footy" referring to AFL player kicking their first goal at AFL level.

To me this always shows such disrespect to all other levels of the game, without which, there would be no AFL players.

really fine line between colorful calling and standup comedy in a couple of the calls l...good to be colourful but needs less to be more sometimes
