He really is awful. Right down there with JP. Both can make a match almost unwatchable. Thank god for the mute button.
I've long advocated for an alternate audio channel (similar to SAP) that provides crowd noise and field mike audio only - no commentary.
I've seen a handful of RAI telecasts of Serie A over the years like this when the commentators have been on strike. It's a little odd at first but actually quite an enjoyable way to watch a match.
Ive wished for years I could hear crowd noise instead of certain announcers...for years I had to deal with Tommy Smyth and now people like Twellman. However, neither are as bad a Julie Foudy during any major tournament she broadcasts
