Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, channel 9 - who hardly showed any of the world cup to start with - have what sounds like a horse-race caller doing the commentary on the AU/NZ semi-final. He does know the players at least, but doesn't seem to know the rules or that we too can see the same pictures as he is. So much for a bit of atmosphere, i had to turn the sound right down to be able to focus on the game and not this dickhead.
You don't realise how much the commentators make the game until you get a complete fuck-wit like this.
The one bright spot of the channel 9 coverage of the whole world cup - that they didn't provide their own wanker commentators - eclipsed in a moment.
Australia aren't looking like winners here after the first half, but there isn't much surprise there. Given a bit of bad luck and some very poor execution they're lucky they're still in it. NZ have made too many mistakes too.
