Cricket commentary

 Does anyone else think that channel 7 commentary is terrible. That on top of there being a double header of bbl on Saturday and no bbl on free to air tv. I know its on foxtell but i havent bothered to pay for sport the last few years. I think that foxtell winning this last contract will be the end of Aussie cricket for a few years the amount of young kids that won't get to follow the sport any more will kill it.

Yep, pretty shocking, I’ve got Fox, so been watching Fox Cricket, much better and similar to the old ch10 format.

Agree, I was a huge cricket fan many moons ago.

But Cricket Australia are selling off their future for short term broadcast (both international and domestic) gains.

Now I just check the results/scoreboard on the internet every now and then.

Foxtel remote commentary

Mon, 2019-01-07 23:00

 I only get Foxtel for racing footy and now cricket. Its pathetic that they have commentators remotely calling off TV screens. Have recently switched to 7 when this happens. Agree that Tuffy is good value.

Yeah Seven is crap for Tests

Tue, 2019-01-08 07:29

Yeah Seven is crap for Tests and they can piss those female commentators off too. Channel 10 took a huge gamble on BBL and brought people through the gates and were robbed having it taken away.

Have a listen to the commentary of Warne's ball of the century. These days the commentators will be screaming and jumping around in the box like phukwits. Still miss his voice every summer.

Warne.

Tue, 2019-01-08 11:13

 I am over listening to Warne telling us how good he "was". Judging by the look on Kerry O'Keef's face, i think that he and some of the other comentators think the same thing.

 Some just say shit for the sake of saying something, repeat the some shit over and over again. Everyones an expert but the Aussie's aren't getting any better.

Worst of all the ODI's are on Foxtel only no free to air telecast.

I’ve got emails

Sat, 2019-01-12 23:30

from Cricket Australia for years though recently telling me they are changing and respecting the Australian public opinion .-Joke- Rare I get wound up but responded as

The one I got the other day spoke of trust and reading it I lost my rag, the f__kers sold the public out when they destroyed Sheffield Shield with no support (talent identification-easy cheap way to choose 20 players and not support states)and then sold the one day rights with no free to air. 

Worst slogan ever -Every game free and live      Even had  the gall in the early adds to play parts of the 50 over games which they are Not Showing !!!

Turn tv on for nada.

 

Almost as pissed as when I see a bucket of undersized crabs  and no fisheries officers need more Honey Badgers lines  to finish this commercial.....

Richie has probably dug himself deeper so he doesn't have to put up with the crap being dished out by Cricket UnAustralian.
