Dunno, I quite enjoy the hearing-what's-happened-then-watching-it-a-second-later routine from time to time. Has good novelty value.
Either way I surely can't be alone in not giving a stuff about who commentates? I'm used to most, and as long as we don't have to endure rank terrible commentators (which, contrary to some assertions, none of Charles Colville, Bob Willis, Paul Allott, David Gower, Ian Botham, David Lloyd, Nasser Hussain nor Michael Atherton are - though each have their demerits and some are indeed terrible in certain other areas) it doesn't bother me in the slightest. If something happens to be informative I listen with great interest; if it doesn't I've forgotten it 2 minutes later.

Just driving home and thought i would put talk sport on to see if they were talking about the ashes. Listened for 5 minutes and lost half my brain cells...Ian Wright was on ffs.
Cricket is truly blessed.

Glad to see Sky Sports News actually had some Ashes coverage tonight.
I switched on last night for 15 minutes or so, and the whole time was completely taken up with Christian Ronaldo's arrival at Real Madrid.
I seem to be out on a limb here, but I'm a big Bumble fan. Yes he's irreverent at times, but I can forgive him that for the genuine enthusiasm he shows...
Indeed, hated him even more when SSN felt his move to Real deserved top billing ahead of the Ashes yesterday though
Shows my complete ignorance of footballing matters, that I got his name wrong.
I suppose we shouldn't wonder what we are going to get from SSN that throughout the Summer their evening slot is still dubbed 'Football tonight'..
You know, in 2001, "You're On Sky Sports - The Football Phone-In" was redubbed "The Ashes - Your Call" for the duration of the series. Charles Colville even replaced Rob Whatsisname who present(ed? s?) it.
McCaffrey is it?
Doesn't do it anymore whatever his name is as I *think* he moved to Setanta
marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!
Anyone want to join the Society?
Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
