Commentary Clowns

    I thought it might be interesting thread to have a record of the most stupid passages of commentary from current games. Please keep it to games from the current weekend rather than historical gaffs. The worst I heard this weekend was from our old friend Marty

    Context: 10 mins in to the game Marty describes how one of the Clare forwards is a fine soccer player. Less than 5 mins later the same player pulls on a loose ball near the Mayo goal hitting a Mayo player less than 3 meters away. Cue Marty

    Marty Morrissey: I told you he was a fine soccer player.

    we have a winner for today, Ger Canning, the most clueless commentator EVER!
    The Gaffes are bad enough but the accent just multiplies it,

    two galway players sent off for 2nd yellow cards, Roscommon already down to 14 and Canning states that is now even 14 vs 14 ??????

    Then a few minutes later he wonders how Roscommon are in the ascendancy as you would think Galway would be pushing to get scores, not allowing for the fact that they are now down to 13 players, how does this man continue to be allowed commentate on games.

    p.s. Newstalk have a new star in regards to the hurling analysis, Tommy Walsh, Passionate, Insightful a real pleasure to listen to.

    'The teams have been level now x times'

    Such a stupid comment you hear in every match. Especially in a sport with the frequency of scores like Hurling it's headwrecking.

    GAA commentators are a bunch of clichè spouters.

    Listen to local radio commentators from some real clangers.

    I will give Local commentators some latitude as they are biased and some really get into the game and it can add tit
