    The woman who is the co-commentator at the gymnastics, trully cringeworthy anytime she says pretty much anything.

    Agreed. The TV One commentators have been so parochial that at times I wondered whether I was listening to Lawry and Greig in the WSC.

    Truly terrible last night was that idiot Peter "oh, rowing is on water so he must be an expert" Montgomery getting all three medal positions wrong at the end of the women's double sculls, and Keith Quinn referring to Valerie Vili by her maiden name FOUR ****ing times. Someone put these fossils out to pasture or better yet, euthanise them.

    That was the thing that annoyed me more than anything last night. Incredibly disrespectful towards Valerie Vili, but also shows that Quinn is well past it as a commentator when he can't even get something like that right.

    I liked Montgomery. He stuffed up the possies in the Ever-Swindel race but at least he can make it exciting, unlike his co-commentator. Not sure why Montgomery isn't commentating on the sailing though.

    The presenter (can't remember his name) was the worst. Toni Street used to live down the road from me so she can be exempt from my dislike of TVNZ.

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Haha yeah, during the 3 day show jumping final, was getting so pissed off when whoever it was kept saying "here comes the triples, watch for the double step".

    I loved Paul Allison's comments on Usain Bolt - basically said "he will be pretty popular in the athlete's village tonight - I don't think he'll be getting much sleep!". Smutty bugger...

    Which ever one kept saying 'C'mon' followed by the horse or rider's name. During the dressage it was particularly annoying.

    I find it really funny how Britain is so devoid of gymnastics pundits that we gave the gig to that geordie bloke who used to do Blue Peter.

    Wtf? Haven't heard that lingo before, generally when talking about steps in horse riding its reffered to as strides. There's no such thing as a double step as far as I know, I think he means two strides. Dunno where that guy learnt his terminology. I could be wrong about the lingo of course, but I doubt it.

    Mightn't have been double step, was double something anyway, in reference to the horse taking two strides between each jump. What ever it was he was saying, it was so ****ing annoying as he said it for every rider. Like we didn't know after the first 2/3 you dolt.
