Been watching off and on some of the match-ups
in the tournament.Whilst this Telecoms Malaysia company
tries to promote itself as a reginal Telecoms company via this
2nd rate badminton event closed for Asean members only with
some participation by aging Asian and European All Stars to
draw some interest, the commentarry on TV is horrendous.
Whilst Burgess is barely getting by, it is marred further by a
Neanderthal of a partner called Tonto or something.
It shows in the total lack of understanding of badminton
especially in the match of Darren Liew vs Scott Evans.And
there is the habitual and unprofessional bad-mouthing of other
players not connected to the tournament.No doubt the natives
of these region have an in-built trait of bad-mouthing and sabotaging
challenges to them instead of competing against them (which have
pervated into all communities living amongst them), it is unbecoming
of a respectable TV station broadcasting a sports event. There is the
incessant spewing of sheer bull-shit in trying to prove that the person
knows the game which only manages to expose the ignorance
in the commentary.
I think sports commentary has reached an all time low, with such
poor standards,luckily it is only confined to Axiata and not BWF.
It is deplorable to have to listen to commentary from someone
who obviously does not play badminton, and also shows his
caveman instincts typical of badminton fans of this region.
Well I will continue to watch certain matches that are not too
political or insular in nature with the sound off of course.
And they said Gillian Clarke is biased and bad.
Have it your way brader, you're all shooting your own feet.
