Default We have the most biased commentators i have heard

Our commentators are so biased...they just call the punches they want to see.
I know they all get behind our local boy but still, you would think they would still be subjective.

You have to watch fights with the sound off to get a good perspective.

I even had a mate from the US text me saying he cant believe how one sided the "ozzie commentators are". Reckons they saw none of Flores punches...

I think we all agree Green won comfortably..but its the same story for Mundine fights & especially noticeable in Contender Final fight.

Our guys behind the microphone are really amateurs in comparison to the US commentators on HBO/Showtime & UK on Sky Sports.

Andy Raymond couldnt wipe Adam Watt & Ian Darke's shoes....let alone Jim Lampley's.
I wont even get into the expert comments comparison between the likes of a Al Bernstein & Barry Michael just a different level all round.

It's because they are terrified that they will lose their jobs if they don't suck ass, especially the ones on Mundines payroll.

Bob Sheridan is the same to a lesser degree with Don King fighters.

Sheridan WAS on Don King's payroll.
I believe he is on Top Rank's now doing much the same.

Was gonna say, the Colonel is all about hyperbole and overstatement - I remember he was out here to co-call a Green fight at Penrith Leagues club and had wound himself up to give the big intro and bellowed "OH BOY I'M HERE IN PERTH AUSTRALIA FOR THE DANNY GREEN FIGHT BOY CAN THIS GUY FIGHT HE IS AMAZING etc..."

Geez, I know Barry Micheal does Choc no favours with his shadow boxing commentary but I've heard some shockers in the States.

Andy rarely gets one-eyed IMO, as does most of the others, but if I had to pick the best, I think we've a way to go to catch the pommy's, even though, on Prizefighter a few weeks back they lost a bit of focus & forgot the other bloke was fighting back.

I don't think some of our judges & commentators realize how we squirm in our seats with embarrassment when this shit happens , particularly when it's it's an international broadcast

Honestly it was painful to listen too the constant dribble all night such as ' Danny taking it to a new level'. I thought a new level of boring more like it.

Just scrolled through and gotta say i agree with the poms......... The bogan set up in Perth is like the wild wild west in the early 1900's.................... Very embarrassing as an Aussie.

Thank **** i'm from Sydney and not any other bogan/8o's state...... Melbourne may have half a case although that head in the sand fasination with AFL tips them back to the bogan side of things.

Mate some of things i heard from bogans nearby to me last night were classic.
Every Green fight i have been to there is always some bogan within a couple rows of me screaming crap.

The Aussie commentators are cringe worthy. They act like excited casual sports fans from the local pub who don't know shit about boxing.

Our commentators are ****ed no doubt about that i heard Barry say something like "its been an absoloute war tonight" which was cringeworthy...but Englands commentators are so ****ing bias it's not funny
Go watch Kostya v Hatton in fact just watch any commonwealth title held in England which involves a non english fighter and listen to the pro bullshit that comes outta their mouths.
So those cunts calling our commentators bias is the kettle calling the pot black if ever i've heard it.

i was watching the green marathon on mainevent yesterday..and i think it was against Byron Mitchell when the commentatos blatanly plug "Painaway" for half a round

Andy Raymond- " Danny hasnt been able to throw his right hand properly since the Olympics, but with the use of a new product "Painaway", and the break from competition , it is better than ever

Barry Micheal- "yeh its a great product that Pain Away..etc"

Goes on for about 2 minutes, all the while there is a fight going on.

Angelo Hyder did own Painaway

Have a look at some of the Poms scorecards. There is a couple there that swear BJ won the fight then bitch that the judges cannot score.

What other rounds could he have possibly won?
