On behalf of all bt subscribers and sports fans we would like to know why Michael Owens contract as a commentator has been renewed and why BT continue to employ by far and away the worst pundit to ever commentate on any sporting event ever? We find it absolutely incomprehensible how Mr owen continues to commentate on live events considering his obvious ineptitude, painfully boring voice and obvious lack of social skills. It is estimated 90% of BT customers dislike Mr owen and wud prefer to mute the sound during live games for much needed respite from Mr owena voice . Why do BT continue to employ someone who so obviously is disliked by all paying subscribers?
Can you please speak for yourself. Whether I like Micheal Own or not as a Bt commentator is for me to decide not for you to decide and speak for me. Also can you give us the source that states that an estimated 90% of Bt customers dislike Owen.
For the love of.....
but what about broadcasting the sport with just the ambient sounds - of the crowd, the players and the backroom staff.
Simple explanation ... Pre-Watershed. The language from the crowd, players and backroom staff will generally be quite "fruity" so the commentators can block most of it out.
BT have stumped up big money. Massive wonga. But affriad the coverage isnt what we are used to. BT may have splashed the cash, but the standard is amature. I have watched a few exciting games but the commentary doesnt reflect what is happening on the pitch. I feel like falling asleep sometimes. Lacks entusuasm! Ian Darke has been decent though at least he has the voice for it and experienced in commentary.
Dont want to give Michael Owen too much of a hard time, great player, great knowledge, POOR commentator. BT just rely on the names and think that will see them through. Owen, Ferguson, Hargreaves, not cut out for it.
