Default Re: andy raymond the worst commentator on television

i like teddy atlas as a commentator. he gives great insights into tactics, methods, history and has a great passion for boxing. he truely respects the sport.

if raymond wants to continue as a commentator, he could do worse that to educate himself about boxing by hanging round some good gyms, study tapes of atlas commentary style, read books, watch video on boxing tactics etc, so he has something to talk about, and ideas to present.

i dont doubt he is intelligent. but it is obvious he doesnt do any research on boxing. he just turns up, asks tony nobbs some questions, and ad libs the rest. not good journalistic practice i would have thought....

cmon andy. do your job properly......

is he giving tv execs blow jobs? surely they dont pay HIM to be on tele??

its an insult to boxing, the boxing public, and boxers, that this bloke is allowed to commentate on tv. i'll be turning down the volume next time he is on , so i dont have to listen to his brain dead, unimaginative, uneducated, DRIBBLE.
No mate THEY ALL SUCK They are all bias fools who can't call a fight for the life of them. They only call the shots from the fighters they want to win and the king of all this is BARRY MICHAEL the biggest clown in boxing history.

Truly they all suck there is not one good caller of boxing out there anymore, Maybe only Hussien who seems to go ok when he calls the fights but as for the rest get rid of the whole damn lot of them they all are shocking and have no idea how to call a fight.

Bloody Jason Dunstill A AFL FOOTBALLER is better which just shows how sad Aussie boxing has become

What about the dipstick ringside announcing by Mark ******.He called one fight ( McMahon/shaw) a unanimous decision when one judge had it a draw and then the classic of all calling the little black flyweight the "tasmanian Tiger"!!!! Even Andy corrected that one to the Tanzanian Tiger !!!!! I bet the little guy didn't even know where Tassie was.

They couldn't be worse than the pommy blokes who do sky broadcasts and sometimes Sentana as well. I thought at one stage he was going to run into the ring and actually suck hatton's dick mid fight vs mayweather. "Look at the way Ricky beautifully deflected those punches with his face. He is definitely winning this round, breaking down the fragile hands of Mayweather".

what really made me think these commentators don't know about boxing is when they said that Kickett will need a KO to win the fight!!

westside. tell me a comentator he is BETTER than??? you cant, cause he isnt. hes piss poor, ignorant, biased, sensationalistic, and you are licking his asshole.

having an opinion of the journalistic performance of a 'high profile' boxing commentator doesnt make it personal. you are the one whose made it personal by wrongly suggesting my huge, thick, long, hard, ready, penis is minute.

if i close my eyes and you pretend you are female, (you probably have man boobs anyway) you are welcome to come and give yourself some stitches in your arse with it. no doubt youve done something simmilar before. i recon your ass already looks like a bad sewing lesson from previous surgeries.

As far as I can see Andy is the network presenter for fox or the anchor man and is always teamed with a boxing pro to round out the commentary.

While the pro gives the viewers the boxing insite the presenter holds the media production together with intros, fillers and wraps.

Its the pros job to give the professional comments while Andy follows the producers program and structure.

I think Andy may do other fox sports events like the NRL.....maybe? but for me he does his role as a presenter thats all.

Interesting comment.

I turned off the comentary midway through because I thought they were only giving one perspective of the fight AND THAT PISSES ME OFF. It's my main issue with Main Event/HBO because they're always calling the fight with little objectivity. It's not hard to work out who's promoted by who.

As for you anal *** comments....well I never could work out if you were a bloke or a bitch. Strange that we were on a similar page as I decided it wouldn't matter what *** you were if I grabbed you by the hair and arse raped you.

Is it true it only hurts the first time? Princess IrnBruSlut said something about shit and blood making a good lube mixture.
