Olympic Commentary Nonsense Thread
Nothing compared to the commentary on NBC…
During the road race stage they were bollocking on about the ‘chateaus’ that dotted the Surrey countryside.
The opening ceremony had too many to mention, but one highlight during the parade of nations was when Madagascar came out ‘Madagascar, recently made famous by an animated movie’.
Just incredible.Posted 5 years agobeanumSubscriber
Following Nelson’s stint saying whatever came into his head during the Olympics opening ceremony, viewers will soon be able to hear the DJ describing the images drifting across his frontal lobe as an accompaniment to any BBC output.
The 48-year-old iPod shuffle, awarded the MBE in 2007 for services to bigging up Britain’s posses, will become a permanent resident of the BBC TV Centre, where he will be intravenously fed a diet of liquidised Monster Munch and value brand orangeade to keep his commentary suitably disjointed and excitable.steve-gMember
So far my highlights were in the swimming where a chinese guy called Sun was going for the WR and the commentator was repeatedly shouting “GO ON SUN”…….and I think yesterday while Phelps mum was cheering him on, one of the commentators said to the other one (ex swimmer) “your mum used to scream”Posted 5 years ago
Oh jeez that’s not a colemanball, that’s just plain ignorant. Shame on you Gary. How much is he paid?
I think we should compile a detailed list and see if we can get a Tory MP to complain about it. See if the Daily Wail will comment on it. They love slagging the Beeb.Posted 5 years agoigrfMember
There’s some knob in the sailing commentating about ‘playing the joker’ he’s referring to sailing’s discard system.
Then one of them went into detail telling us what ‘toe straps’ were for.
It’s so dumbed down in the vain hope folk who don’t know about sailing are actually watching which of course they wouldn’t be and nothing of any value is imparted to those of us who do and are interested. Pathetic .Posted 5 years agomikewsmithSubscriber
Any Ozzie commentator wont give in until their athlete has lost, they have a chance even if they are in last right up to the end. Also unfortunately the programming is being done by a hyperactive 5yo, we keep swapping sports every 2 mins (thankfully to watch brit medals in the cycling and rowing mostly)Posted 5 years ago
