Biased refs? What about biased commentators!
I watched Queensland v NSW on Foxtel on Saturday. I found it incredibly irritating. Marto and Kearns seem like decent blokes but their commentary is nothing short of appalling.
If the ref in any game exhibited the bias that these two do, he would never get another gig.
So why should the same principle not apply to, for want of a better word, commentators?
I don’t want to hear jersey bigotry during a game from them. A few sarcastsic digs occassionally adds to the humour of a match.
After all, everyone over 40 knows what teams the dynamic duo played for.
But that was over the top.
My suggestion is leave the rabid one-sided comments for the crowd. We don’t need any help there.
