Shouldn't commentators actually know what they're talking about?

Frankly, I have been wondering what it would be like to see her together with Dick Button.

Carillo is best known for her tennis work, but she is a commentator for a variety of sports. She also co-wrote that wonderful HBO documentary on women in sports.

This is true she just acts like a moron either way, except now she has two moron sidekicks(Sale and Pelletier) and a senile old man(Dick Button) helping her, I am embarrased for Scott Hamilton on a nightly basis.

Yuck! I can't stand "no balls at all" elf Hamilton. I enjoyed his skating, but can't stand his commentary. Or Bezic's or Roz Sumners!
Give me Dick and Peggy anyday and for the love of heaven replace Tom Hammond with Verne Lundquist!

They should have guest commentators from time to time like that, completely out of the norm
