I also wish the commentators would talk less shit about the rules of the game.
Drew Mitchell: “Oh god that decision was dumb! The rules are so shit! How shit are the parameters of this game! This game is shit!”
Leaves space for fans to be disenfranchised and for newcomers to change the channel.
We get it Drew - player safety wasn’t a concern in your day. This is perhaps the reason that both you and SBW can’t get a fucking straight sentence out when commentating without stammering or confusing your words.
I enjoy the ex-players who have now decided that if you’re stopping someone scoring a try anything goes.
‘Yes I know he pulled out a samurai sword and beheaded the ball carrier, but he was 5m out what’s he supposed to do?!?!’
