    FFS, Mark Nicholas-haters grind my cricketing gears.

    He's doing what he's paid to do - make a fuss. So complain to the producers.

    Seconded, I could understand people complaining if he was just a moron like Healy, but he has been made the "poster boy" for cricket commentary basically and is paid to make a fuss.

    Commentators saying the same things about a player/team over and over again, especially when it's not that accurate ITFP.

    When a commentator says, 'When he hits the ball, it stays hit'. Possibly the stupidest phrase ever.

    Oh god i hate that phrase to.

    I hate it when commentators pigeon whole players all the time, for instance, have you ever heard a media person talk about Collingwood for longer than 15 seconds without saying he's a nudger and a nurdler? I don't care if it's true or not, just stfu please.

    And in limited overs games when a slower ball gets hit for four in the latter stages and the commentators chastise him for trying to do too much variation when he should just be bowling yorkers.

    People talking about Paul Nixon's 'attitude' and ignoring his actual performance on the field, i got bloody annoyed in the CB series when Nixon got loads of press space for doing worse than Read or Jones did in their careers. I don't care how much he talks in the middle, his performance should not be ignored just because he is a nice character.

    The way commentators only have one abjective to describe poor fielding and over-throws- "Sloppy" and when it happens they act like it's the end of the world.

    Nasser Hussain talking about a team's poor body language then the camera focusing in on fine leg as if to make the point, wtf is he meant to be doing? Starting a konga line in memory of his last over? Having good 'body language' is less important than how they're actualy bowling/batting/fielding yet it gets more air time than it should, Hussain thinks he's some bloody expert at it.

    Ex players getting things just blatantly wrong, makes me want to cry in despair when Hussain names Vaughan as being in England's 'big 3' ODI players and when Micheal Slater said Strauss was a terrific batsman who the selectors must stop dropping and reselecting-Strauss at the time had just played 75 consecutive ODIs.
