Default HBO Commentators R the Worst!!! EVER!!!

I Always like to watch the fight live but with the sound off cause the HBO commentators are a sorry bunch...Lampley & crew is always screaming and getting hyped about punches that didn't land, rooting for the HBO fighter, etc...

Here is a example. Before I start I would like to state for the record that I had Pac winning the fight.

For those of you that have access to the fight go to round 2 at 2:23 of the round the fighters come together Pac's right arm is over Tim's left arm pinning it against Pac's body. Bradley does what a fighter is supposed to do, punch with your free hand, he does this until the ref breaks them at 2:11 then at 2:05 Lampley says the crowd didn't like the fact that Bradley had his left arm clamped over Pac's right arm and Byrd didn't break them, then Stewart chimes in "I was really surprised that Byrd didn't catch that ,cause he held on to it for a long time. Lampley shot back "Indeed Bradley was holding and hitting.
Sometimes I wonder What N the hell are they watching???

Now I know that this is just one example but it's like this for every fight.
Anybody else have any other examples? feel free to add them.

The "A"-Squad sucks ass, 90% of the time its a verbal asskissing regardless of what's happening in the ring. The B-Team(Papa, Kellerman, Jones) is much better at calling fights.

Co-sign, that shit was ****in sickening. The worst part, "I think Harold Lederman is the greatest scorer in the world."-Lampley. That shit really made me want to kick the shit out of Jim. Harold is absolute trash and reading his scores half the time you'd think he was blind. They need a new team, shits stupid.

lampley/lederman/compubox need to go. kellerman is actually getting better...and steward is THEE most knowledgeable person there bows down to anything lampley says when he knows the opposite to be true.

A lot of people are starting to realise. A lot of the hysteria is down to that team specifically. Bradley didn't win, but it was a lot closer than people are saying. Definitely influenced.

Harold Ledderman is the biggest joke of a scorer.

You should of seen the Brian Kenny commentating.

"Bradley throws 5 hard shots to Pacquiao's arms and Manny doesnt know what to do!!!!!bradley takes a shot from Manny's left...you know Mario (Lopez) I just dont see Pacquiao being aggressive enough....Bradley takes another left and staggers (ding) I gave that round to Bradley"

HBO are terrible, they usually talk with a tone suggesting that they are above it all and they know who's going to win. They make fights more boring, they don't even seem to pay attention to what's happening anymore and go off on tangents about other fighters.
Showtime are miles ahead when it comes to commentating, I always enjoy Tarver's commentary and he is one guy who adds to the telecast. HBO need to take note. Lampley and Steward have as much charisma as a lamp post.
