Idiot Commentator Section, Vol. 1

Was watching Sky commentary on the Fox Soccer Channel in the USA. The match wasn’t 10 minutes old but the commentator has already mentioned the referees nationality at least three times. This would have been a non-issue perhaps, but for the fact that the referee had committed the cardinal sin of being a German national. Our man on Sky went as far to say (round about minute 10) “once again the German referee sides with Greece.” Perhaps Basil Fawlty has decided to abandon the hotel business and supplement his pension by bringing his particular brand of jingoistic sensitivity to the airwaves. Another choice tidbit was “They do have some names, these Greeks”. Indeed. And there never was an Englishman called Winterbottom. What a load of poo.
