Who the hell knows... only Speed can take a great series like WSB and truly F#*! it up with the most mediocre commentating in the world. I watched about 3/4 of a lap and then turned the TV off and went to go work on the bike.

It's embarrassing really. I mean, honestly, the local commentating in South Africa is far better than the rubbish that gets produced over here. The only thing that I think could be worse would be MLS commentators trying to talk their way through an English Premiership game...

Whitham and Burnicle are the best! Can't understand a word but u know it was funny so you laugh anyway. Ralph is a decent guy in person but an instant buffoon when u put a mic in his hands.:banghead

Speed's coverage blows. Jonathan Green or the two guys from British Europsport are a lot better. They are always making some comment about someones wife/girlfriend and her breasts.

This buffoon is Larry Meyer reincarnated.

Ru$$ell and She-hen are hopeless. Just give us the regular brit crew.

The best American was Despain. Sadowski and Drebber were a good team but the best ever were the two limeys cheering for Foggy - can't recall their names.

+1 I love Whitham, that guy is just as natural and funny as can be. and when he speaks about riding you know it's actually worth something. not just some fat ass spouting off shit he heard Greg White say once in the back of a womens bathroom.

I thought her name was Ollie.

BBC and Eurosport coverage is amazing. They get into technical on the bikes, tires, etc. They even have the perelli guys in the both and funny interviews with current and past riders. What do we get? Damn NASCAR creeps.

Yeah, that's the bird, Oli. But Pippa is getting slammed by someone in that paddock. Just can't remember who.:eek:

Edit: Found it! Pippa is Laverty's girlfriend.

Eurosport's OK and I dig Whitham's insight too but their bias towards their own countrymen get's really tedious. No disrespect to any of the riders, to get on that grid you gotta be good, but gimme a break - I mean trying to appropriate Corser as in "4 English and 1 English-speaking rider in the top 5" or whatever ... P L E A S E. That shit's just pathetic.

Why can't they just make it about the racing and leave their irrelevant patriotism in the car park.

That is the correct pronunciation in Spanish dialect, the Z is a th. Our way would be to pronounce the Z, but it would be incorrect sounding to "Lorentho". Same with his first name, we would say George (Jorge), he says Whorehay.

To the original topic.....Yes, everyone hates Sheheen!

I didnt know which was worse...the long, dead air silences periodically during the previous US WSBK races or those long, dead air silences filled with Sheheens drivel.
