Is it just me, or has anyone noticed how bad the CBC coverage is?
I know the Lions - Argos game was a snoozer, but could Flutie be any more pathetic? His commentary is ill-timed and far too technical! And Kahari Jones needs some polishing! His timing and emphasis is off too!
And what is with the camera coverage? It was terrible!!! How long do I have to wait for a replay because the cameraman missed the live play?!!!
And the sound? Who was that dude screaming into the on field mic? And whay wasn't it corrected in the first few minutes?
By contrast, the TSN coverage is great! Its like night and day. I'm really not interested in watching another CBC broadcast until I have to at the end of the season!
ya its pretty bad i was watch the game between Toronto and Winnipeg and the damn cameraman couldnt even keep the football in the screen durning a long bomb :roll: i didnt see the catch, and i had to see the catch from the endzone cameras from both ends. I heard a few swear words come from the field too :lol: so ya its bad!
Flutie and the other guy both sucked. It was so obvious that they were pulling for the Argos. As the game progressed, they had less & less emotion in their speech, they were getting as depressed and depressing as the Argos and their fans.
If the CBC wants commentators, get some that aren't Toronto-centric. Toronto isn't the center of the f**king universe!
I'm sure Darren would be fine with some formal training. But, geez, throwing around technical terms that only football players know just won't keep people watching. Most of us are football fans, not coaches or ex-college players. Do I really need to know that the first cut on a receiving route is a hip, or an ankle or whatever Darren called it?
I'd take Darren over Suitor. I don't know how many times he needs to tell us how awesome the Rider fans are, as if it's any quieter in Edmonton or Winnipeg or just about anywhere else when their D is on the field.
