Great argument that, no really, his performance as a player so makes
him an unbiased commentator.

Not just Botham, even Paul Allott is the same...Cant listen to these

Re: Botham Is A Total Wanker

Botham is a knob - but his heart is in the right place. He can't help
it. He is just a very unsophisticated bloke. He was quite good at
cricket though and that is why he gets a gig with Sky. Compare him to
Nas or DG for insight. It is quite pitiful sometimes...

The dickhead was Hayden shaking his head as if he'd been harshly treated
when given out LBW. Pitching on line and hitting middle stump two-thirds of
the way up obviously isn't out as far as that knob is concerned.

Amparikh

Aus are playing away, try to remember that.

The usual fare over here from the comms is uninterrupted praise for
Australia, except for the odd negative comment from the overseas guest
commentator (who then gets roasted on this group as an idiot). Now that
the comm box isn't populated exclusively by Australians, get used to a
bit more of a balanced view of the games.

Heck, you may even have to put up with crappy ads flogging memorabilia
for the English team, rather than the endless diet of 'signed photos of
Gilchrist scoring his 4102nd Test run', 'limited edition mp3s of Boof
calling the SLankans black c**ts' and other great moments in Australian
cricket history.

But don't worry, normal service will be resumed when cricket returns to
Nein in the summer.

Interesting comments Huggies. You object when Australian commentators are
bias but when os commentators are bias it is OK.. You really are a anti
Australian troll who should spend more time on his Syd Uni janitorial

I think you'll find that the commentators are normally going to be
biased in favour of the home team. They certainly are in both Australia
and England.
Why are your guys whinging that Ian Botham isn't supporting the
Australians?
Did you expect that he would be?

Why post a big whinge that Ian Botham is a total wanker because he
doesn't support Australia?

I said you usually get biased commentators from the home team, whether
it's Australia or England?

How is that a troll?

If you weren't whinging, why didn't you just post that you agreed with
me?

Yes, I do.

Sometimes I turn the sound down & listen to 702, but Maxwell & Co. can
be almost as bad.
I did enjoy Harsha Bogle when he did some of the Indian tour.

But if you seriously believe that Lawry, Chappell, Slater and sundry
others aren't biased, you've got rocks in your head.

If you can't bear hearing commentators who don't praise everything that
Australia does and sometimes take the side of the opposition, don't
watch the tv, unless you can get a feed with exclusively Australian
comms. I think 702 are covering The Ashes, so you can listen to Maxwell
and not have your sensibilities upset too much.

Hard not to praise a side that is the best in the world, that doesn't mean
they are biased.

They fuck up too, sometimes.

In case you missed it, the other week they lost to England (twice),
Bangladesh and Leics.

Do you think they deserve praise for that?

Hey, you win some, you lose some.
I was just surprised at the amount of Australian whingeing today when
they didn't even lose!

Sorry how does them losing the other day have anything to do with the

Of course he is unbiased and the fact that his company manages Pietersen

It's worth remembering, when discussing Botham's pronounciations on
Pietersen's catch, that Botham is a partner in the company that manages
Pietersen. He's rather unlikely to dob his own client in.

Re: Botham Is A Total Wanker

Sitting here in Sydney, I find the commentary above the Nine Australia
standard, with the exception of Lehmann (he just talks shit) and Bob
Willis, who seems to have lost his personality the day he got all his
boofy 1980's hair cut off.

Pietersen is a cheat though, but it is good that the Pom commentators
are baiting this all up and will make for some interesting viewing;
better than most cricket televised for years

I'm convinced that the ball touched the ground as Pietersen caught it,
but I'm less than convinced that Pietersen is a cheat. He dived, made
contact with the ball very close to the ground and then tumbled. It's
quite possible that he honestly thought he took it cleanly.

I wasn't listening last night so didn't hear him on the catch, I am
referring to his extremely biased commentary so far.

Whatever else you do, *don't* choose that option. Your television will
explode, and when you return it to the shop for repair, the nice man behind
the counter will point to page 273 of the operating instructions, on which
exposing the equipment to NZ rugby commentary is expressly verboten.

Exactley it was the Umpires who stuffed up, IMHO, not Pietersen. He caught
or didn't catch the ball so close to the ground that he wouldn't know one
way or the other but than the ball touched the ground ( whilr in his hand )
before he had control.

It's a thread about Botham being a wanker for not supporting Australia,
even though they're the best team in the world.

And as anyone with half a brain could see, I was talking about the
games Australia lost a couple of weeks ago. Do you know where Leics is?

Who was commentating on those four games?

Only someone as parochial and paranoid as yourself would think I was
referring to Australian commentators.

Just get over it and stop whingeing, the comms in England are not going
to be supporting Australia, even if they, as you insist, are the best
team in the world.

The bulk of commentators are from the home team. On this occasion the
home team is England so the bulk of the commentators are English.
It's hardly surprising if they show a bias towards their own side.

I'm not quite sure how Huggies stating the blindingly obvious (to all
except you and a handful of other Aussies, it would seem) is trolling.

My complaints about the ABC during the 02-03 Ashes wasn't that they
were biased (which is acceptable to a listener), but that they were
boring and repetitive (which is not). I don't doubt that Sky is just
as bad, but ABC comms seemed substandard to to one who's used to the
BBC and Ch4.

Having seen a few replays it seems clear to me that he had control of the
ball before it touched the ground. Sure the ball touched the ground but he
already had his fingers around it and the ball *did not move in his fingers*
which is the important part. If upon impact the ball had shifted within his
grasp then it's no catch, but it didn't.

Cheers,
Nathan.
