Yep, good point, it's just sometimes they both show them and Fox have a bigger timeslot so I IQ that. I really should just IQ the 'WTA tournament' slot and then the next few programs after. Anything is better than Skinner!

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

Worst commentator in the history of sports.

1. Stop talking.

2. Stop over pronouncing the players name you idiot.

3. Stop trying to make everything sound so epic.

4. Stop trying to make everything a summary.

5. Stop trying to dig up every little meaningless stat or fact you can think of.

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

Also, one of his co-commentators Kathy Rinaldi is bad as well. Her voice is annoying and she ALWAYS sounds like she has a cold

"if you want to know....go to wtatour.com"

Somehow every comment relates to advertising the website.

Heard him commentate with another person a couple of times. He wasn't as annoying then...But still annoying.

This this this. Why the fuck does he have to give each and every player a personal voice?

Should've heard the way he was pronouncing Ferrer yesterday. Painful.

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

It's a lack of respect for the viewers in my opinion - waffling crap and repeating the same thing every single match EVERY 30 minutes.

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

Looking back at my previous post is funny because I have renewed but have no complaints about the picture, syncing etc etc...stream from my phone to apple tv.

It is just him that is spoiling it. To be nice someone commentating by themselves isn't an easy thing, especially if you are boring and dull.

The WTA probably make him say all those things about the site/facebook/twitter. They are obsessed with page views/followers etc etc You pay $130 a year and you still have all that advertising thrown at you.

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

I am watching the ESPN3 feeds. Molik is OK. (I initially thought it was Stubbs speaking ). Skinner is Dick Enberg in training, clearly . Loves finding new ways of re-phrasing the same shit every time he gets to say something, even gleefully interrupting the rest when he cannot keep still (apologizing and then rattling straight on ). At least Katrina Adams is courtside. Cannot stand her and her announcing the scores all the time.

Re: Rate a commentator: Kevin Skinner

They should follow the BBC rules: no talking over the point and no announcing the score.

So what happened to Stubbsy? Interesting that they are using Molik. The Spanish stream had Conchita Martinez and Patricia Tarabini. They have the sounds of the court lower than the commentators commentary (I hate that).
