    The "Channel 9 Commentary Is Hurting Brain" Thread

    Will move this into the Ashes sub-forum when the time is appropriate.

    They are terrible. I actually get angry just listening to most of the commentators on channel 9. No joke, I'd probably pay about $500 to listen to the foxsports commentators instead of Channel 9's.

    Can't bear it anymore, find myself actually shouting at the TV when they're talking. And it's not like it's just one or two commentators that are bad, it's the whole ****ing lot, so there's no relief at all.

    Bit perplexed as they were talking about Malinga earlier like it was his first ever game. I know his action is different and awesome in its own way, but who has never seen it in slow motion before... agonisingly described by Tony Grieg?

    Lawry and Greig are just on autopilot - there's no attempt or even thought of analysing the game. I'm not even sure they're at the ground - it's just a soundtrack.

    Benaud is just full of quips. I used to like Rich when he was naturally witty, nowadays just tries too hard. He should have got out at the same time he retired from commentary in England (2005).

    <3 Richie soso much. I'm just glad that he's not bat**** senile at his age, and provides a valuable insight to the cricketing world of yesteryear.

    I'd rather have 3 Richies wax lyrical in the comms than 3 Healys.

    I love Greig, the game won't be the same without him imo. I agree though that Benaud isn't nearly as good as he used to be. But he is like 120 so its only understandable...

    If there is anyone who tries too hard I reckon its Mark Nicholas.
