World Cup commentary

Thoughts on the commentary team they have? Considering the push by FIBA this year you would have thought they would have spent at least something on production.

When a man commentates badly = bad commentator, get another one

When a female commentates badly = why do they insist on female commentators?

There are plenty of good female commentators, there isn't some inherent biology that one gender is bad at commentating.

So, I'm trying to figure out who won. From the commentary team's post game comments I take it Canada won the game on the back of a dominant 3rd quarter. Is this right?

I am sure these two are respectable enough and comparing them with Shane Heal is ludicrous, but I've heard nothing about Australia's efforts. In a group which has been deemed the toughest of them all, Australia should be getting a little more love for their dominance over a very good team for 2-3 quarters

KET way to misconstrue what I wrote. Since she was an ex-player in the women's game why not have her commentate the women's World Cup and have an ex-player who is male commentate this one as he would be more familiar with the men's game? For example if it had to be a Canadian pick up someone who recently retired from the team as a player or coach to give us the best insight. You went off on a tangent like a warrior and didn't give yourself enough time to read properly.

KET I was talking about the colour commentator position only. I prefer an ex-player/coach who has a connection to the team, that would mean same gender (unless an ex-coaching staff member was female). That's not unreasonable. Nothing sinister in it. In women's World Cup I prefer female commentators.

Obviously the lead commentator totally sucked. The problem is in international tournaments producers go for people with English accents because no matter what they say at least it sounds 'refined'. It happens across so many sports. These poms get paid well for not even knowing what they are talking about. Highway robbery.

The Boomers have just won against Canada under tremendous pressure. The win is ok but a loss would have been tragic, as it is for Canada now.

Yet, some opinions here focus on how bad the commentary is/was.

How about the massive turn-arounds, all game, especially after halftime? Really good result for the Boomers. Will have to tighten the TO"s though. Was Canada's highest scorer.

I thought she was okay but two big things stood out, her saying Nembhard was the point guard who torched us in warm up games when it was actually Pangos (in one game, DNP in the other) as a Canadian herself she really should've known that and her somewhat blatant cheering for her home team.

I don't think she deserves any criticism for being a female commentator she was better than a lot of useless guys are but as a Canadian to avoid bias and conflicts of interest she shouldn't have been allowed by FIBA to commentate this game.

In the cricket, Isa Guha is very good IMO - notices the technical aspects of the contest, yet has personal warmth which is not forced. The US wnba commentators can be good. As for the canadian lady, she's okay, not great. It is hard to get commentators who can follow the richie benaud approach and be economical in their language, who are comfortable in allowing pauses so that the viewer can notice the action, the crowd and atmospherics.

Lithuania's Jankunas with a wily post move and the Canadian commentator's response is to sound completely deflated and say it's "disappointing" because Canada played good defense for most of the play. I don't think she took on board the advice to appear more unbiased. The exciting basketball seems to only matter when it is Canada doing it.

This is the World Cup. Good basketball deserves some excitement from commentators, regardless of the team.

Well said, Zodiac.

Also "Speedy" (or whatever his name is), really shouldn't be commentating the world cup. Somehow his commentary of USA-Turkey was even worse than the Australia game.

I loved his implication that with the scores tied and 0.1 remaining in the 4th, it was absurd to call a timeout and advance the ball. Even after Heal explained a tip-in was possible and a legitimate strategy, he still couldn't comprehend that a team would explore every opportunity to win... in the fucking WORLD CUP of all events. Such a moron.
