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. :haha:

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.

I can't wait to hear Peggy Fleming commentate on a tennis match...hopefully a loud shrieking contest between Venus and Maria... :tape:

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!

I wonder who Peggy would flambast for lack of extension. :tape:

I'd actually love to see Dick Button commentate a women's tennis match. ;)

It won't be Mauresmo...she's beautiful to watch. Also, Chris Evert's game was just flawless to watch. So simple, so elegant...always in position! :worship:

Yeah to be honest there is something about Dick Button I just can't help but like, he said the other night that he is having the best time of his life, and he seemed really sincere, I was a little moved by it. :tears:

At times I find Button rather annoying and a bit too critical, wheras, Hamilton is more reasonable and likable in his commentary.

I noticed that he is a little overly critical of things like spiral positions, things that casual viewers will not understand anyway, still he just seems like a nice old grandpa or something.

Button is critical when necessary. Scott is like the Paula Abdul of Ice-Skating Commentary. Even if someone falls on their ass he's like "well they fell gracefully and are still positive about the rest of their program" :lol:

You mean Paula "you are all awesome" Abdul :D

Mary is just getting in where she fits in. The fact that she has no knowledge of the sport doesn't concern her in the least bit. :tape: :lol:

Mary today was like Gosh these are some hard names to pronounce and she was trying to pronounce them and I'm like you can't be serious you know you know those names, you can't be around tennis that much and not realize how to deal with those names. She did know those names she was just playing along but anyway. I like Dick he has been around forever and he truly brings a wide knowledge of the sport. Scott Hamilton is soooooooooo horrible TRIPLE AXEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! During the Jump. oR TRIPLE FLIP DOUBLE TOEEEE AHHH SHE missed it.

Sandra Bezic is Blah

Dick Button during a Maria sharapova match. It just seems to me this grunting is awkward and unnecessary it seems to take away from her elegance.
