    Football bureaucrats from Africa. Pretty much all inept, unimaginative and selfish wannabe politicians and ex-footballers the whole lot of them.

    Makes Ian Healy's commentary seem like a cross between John Arlott & the Dalai Lama. Shocking that such a reactionary, buffoonish borderline racist old **** is still employed by the BBC in this day and age.

    Yesterday he ran through the rugby results, leaving out our horlicks versus the yarps and closed with "& I'm not going to say anything about the England result."

    <Pause>

    "Shocking."

    Look, either take the piss or don't, frankly English sports fans are fairly immune. But don't say you're going to say nothing when you clearly can't help yourself, you fat cretin.

    Biased towards players and teams he advocates in his laughable phone-in, calls many decisions completely wrong, which we all do, but compounds it by being so trenchant about it. Telling players they should be "ashamed of themselves" for diving when they've been mugged or talking about a "shocking decision" by a ref when he's got it spot on. Seems to get it wrong about 80% of the time too, which is a fair average. Not remotely funny when he tries to be constantly, even at inappropriate times, like when he should be ****ing commentating.

    He's an irritating pub bore who is never happier when he's whining or whinging. Unbelievable that the Beeb employ him. He gives a totally skewed idea of matches which if people can't get the telly pictures, he's the sole option. May possibly be a good option on Talksport as a shock-jock for those who like his brand of putrefying, miserly whimsy, but surely not an option for a public broadcaster.

    Not a fan, tbh.....

    The commentators during any England football game

    "Was John Terry offside? Hmm, borderline."

    when he was really obviously offside. Moan and moan about decisions that go against England while choosing to completely ignore those that go for them. I hate them because they make it impossible for me to want England to win, which i'd really love to be able to do.

    The French Rugby team.

    14 phases, get the ball to within about 5 metres of the Australian line, forawrds dominating. Push for the try?

    Nah. Take a shot a drop goal from 10 out. And miss.

    ****ing hopeless.

    People who think the Premier League has Four teams in it
    This is especially the case in SA, okay people are shunning the local leagues in favour of some faceless multi billion rand franchise they have never even seen in the flesh, fair enough.. But get an education before you start faking passion.. I asked someone who had a complete flame rant at a load of ManUre players what "WBA" stood for.... She asked if it was something to do with basketball..

    The Premier League is really made of four teams. The whole thing is a shambles.
