The majority of American commentators I have ever heard - loud, abrasive and no real insight. They come across as background noise.

There's one thing about light heartedly taking the mick out of American sports (or European sports for that matter); it happens here occasionally.

It's another thing to go trolling and fishing for negative replies.

But I'm speaking the truth. I'm not wanting negative replies at all, infact they aren't welcome in my thread. Rather I'd prefer education and a view from the 'other' side.

hard to prepare a response when you're just saying "those guys i've heard"

doesn't exactly help.

frankly... i'd rather have john sterling announce my every day events than have to ever listen to michael kay, that total complete douche bag.

at least you can laugh at sterling's homer-ism... kay is such a brutal yankee homer, but he tries to deny it. it's sad and/or pathetic.

and frankly, what john sterling does is no better/worse than that soccer guy with his "goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooal goal goal goal goal gooooooooooooooooooooooooooal" chants. perhaps he's an american, too.

I think we all grew up listening to a certain style and perhaps we're just accostomed to one country's "style" versus that of another.

And I use the term "style" loosely because each announcer has their own style.

A goal without the "goaaaaaaalllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll" yell does not make any sense... Brit comentators are also incredibly boring... what is that "he scores!" crap...?

Americans do not have a clue about soccer, that is why their commentators suck.

Two seasons ago when all the big European teams were travelling the US for pre-season they left the feed on at half-time and I had the fun distraction of hearing the US commentator (who made a few mistakes in his overall terminology but was otherwise quite enthusiastic) singing along to 'Pump It Up' by Elvis Costello before changing the lyrics to 'I have to go to the lavatory'.

What the hell was the need to rip up the NFL for? It has nothing to do with soccer/football except in name. It was pointless.
