Sport commentators on TV do we really need them. What do you think I often wish they would stop their dribble, when they have nothing to say about what is happening they just to keep talking they come out with some right tripe? Who carers if the player uncle Tom worked for who ever. And his mum was the only daughted and had 20 brothers YAWN.

I hate it when the camara is looking at the fans and v.i.p's when the game is in play and the commentator dribbling on about who's who.

This is my point. We need them for sport on radio but do we need them for TV. If we go to a match or game do we have a commentator telling us whats happening no so as we can see it on TV do we need them hell no [}:)]

I am a football referee. Alot of players "learn" the laws of the game from these "experts". It makes my job even more difficult than it already is.

We did that when I was stationed in Germany watching football on German TV we would put the match on the BBC radio and turn the sound off. The thing is if we can see what is happening why do we need thse people telling us we can see for our selves.

Are you saying they are getting cr*p info from them [}:)]This thread is not about football but all sports covered on TV. I love to watch superbikes and if I turn the sound down I loose the sound of the bikes ect. Pitty we cannot select to listen or switch off the commentator.

I wouldn't want it removed altogether but I would like them to be treated fro their apparent 'silenceophobia'.

Why do they think that it is a crime for them to say nothing for a few seconds ?

Pleat and Tildesley do my head in.

I got rid of Sky TV years ago because Andy Gray's babble gave me a pain in the backside!
Trouble is when I do catch a Sky match the fool is still at it!

ITV is not much better, give me the good old BBC with Motty, now there's class![8D][8D][8D]

Pressing mute is not the answer, we would loose the atmosphere from the crowd. If you go to a sport event do you have a commentry no so why do we need them on TV. We can see what is happening we do not need telling.

some sid's classic

1978

Rees didnt know of he was having a shower, a shave - or washing his feet.

1979

Its the kind of jousting we used to see when Ivanhoe was stuffing the Normans.

Tony Brown attacks opponents the way Desperate Dan takes on cow pie.

When John Lowe gets back to Clay Cross therell be a reception as if the Ayatollah Khomeni had walked into town.

1980

The atmosphere here is a cross between the Munich Beer Festival and the Coliseum at Rome when then Christians were on the menu.

1981

Only one word for that - magic darts.

Hes sweating like a swamp donkey.

Bobby is done up like an electric-purple liquorice allsort.

The pendulum is swinging back and forward like a metronome.

Jocky Wilson - all the psychology of a claymore.

If Cliff gets back in this, it will be the greatest comeback since Lazarus.

1982

Cliff Lazarenkos idea of exercise is a firm press on a soda siphon.

Three 140s on the trot - and the last was 100.

Hes been burning the midnight oil at both ends.

The fans now with their eyes pierced on the dartboard.

1983

Seeds are falling like chaff in a cornfield.

Bristow reasons; Bristow quickens; aaaaah Bristow!

Bristow looks as peevish as a peckish pterodactyl.

Keith Deller is not just an underdog - hes an under puppy.

1984

Dennis Ovens has goosed the cook.

Bristow with that little finger poised - fit to grace any garden party.

Top of the tree darts - with leaves on.

1985

Youve got to be fit to play darts.

If Brissy was at Cape Canaveral hed take off before the rocket. IN

When Alexander of Macedonia was 33 he cried salt tears because there were no more worlds to conquer - Bristow is only 27!

NOTE: This was me spreading my wings. A few days earlier my producer had *******ed me for getting Moses, Rod Stewart and Ivanhoe all in five minutes of commentary. But the Beeb bosses loved it and he was ordered to give me free rein.

As Freud and Jung would no doubt agree, you can over-psych for a darts match.

The crowd at Jollees is sitting on the edge of their tenterhooks.

1986

John Lowe is going out faster than the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry.

The hands of Anderson weave their own fairytale - things look Grimm for the other bloke.

1992

Taylor is snapping at Gregorys heels like an alligator with toothache.

1993

Anderson came on like the Laughing Cavalier - now he looks as narked as Lee Van Cleef on a bad night.

This final is literally turning into a Greek tragedy for the Lancastrian Warriner.

1994

We couldnt have more excitement if Elvis walked in and asked for a chip sandwich.

NOTE: This was my last fling at the Beeb. I joined Sky and hundreds of hours live has suited me fine. Judge for yourself.

The crme de la menthe of darts doing their thing in Blackpool

Jocky is going like the Loch Ness monster with a following wind.

Shane is as happy as hound dog whos won a years supply of Bonio.

William Tell could take an apple off your head, Taylor could take out a processed pea.

1995

Under that heart of stone beat muscles of pure flint.

Cliff is off and looking for something yellow in a tall glass - and I dont mean daffodils.

NOTE: Here are some of my favourites from my pool commentaries of 1995.

As the Borgias knew full well, fine cuts can hurt.

Thats like laying a trap in the path of a blind rabbit.

If I could shoot pool like that I wouldnt be sitting here mauling the English language.

1996

Hes got one foot in the crematorium and the other near thin ice.

Hes emoting like Kenneth Branagh giving it big licks as a villain.

Bristows affect on the audience like Rasputin used to have on the birds a long time ago.

Erics chops covered in lipstick - like hed been mugged by an Avon lady.

1997

Hitting that bull - as good a feeling as Jason and the lads finding the fleece.

Deller is just like Long John Silver -desperately needs another leg.

You have got to have a mind like a pelican chip to maintain this mathematical consistency.

Taylor is so hot he could hit the bullseye standing one-legged in a hammock.

As they say at the DHSS were getting the full benefit here.

Dennis eyes bulging like the belly of a hungry chaffinch.

It might have been a bit boisterous here earlier, but now its got all the courtesy of a Bourbon court on dance night.

NOTE: Press now split. 50% think Im a genius; rest think Im probably mad and possibly have Tourettes Syndrome.

1998 to 2003

Its like trying to pin down a kangaroo on a trampoline.

Stopping Taylor? Its like trying to halt a water buffalo with a pea-shooter.

Steve Beaton. Hes not A-donis, hes THE Donis.

That was like throwing three pickled onions into a thimble.

NOTE: I was voted Sports Commentator of the Year in 2002 by 70 of my peers..

This lad has more checkouts than Tescos.

The players are under so much duress, its like Duressic Park out there.

NOTE: Giles Smith in The Times says Sid is lucky to be alive in the era of Taylor, and we are lucky to be alive in the era of Sid.

He looks about as happy as a penguin in a microwave.

Its the nearest thing to public execution youll see this side of Saudi Arabia.

If wed had Taylor at Hastings, the Normans would have turned round and gone home.

2004

Andy Fordham looks like a hippo in a Power shower.

2005

Circus Tavern packed - even a garter snake smothered in Vaseline couldnt slide in here.

Meeting Taylor in this mood is like finding an alligator in your lily pond.

Wayne dancing up there like Frank Lampard swivelling past Spaniards.

Michael Howard throws Flights out of his party - at this party we throw the flights in.
