Julie Foudy could be an example as to why ex-jocks shouldn't do commentary unless they understand the job.

Today's World cup game between USA vs. Brazil was a great game, EPIC is a fitting word to describe this match, shame that ESPN and the crew did not take it to that level .

I thought I was listening to a high school broadcast with the parents doing the commentary, it took away from a great game.

They became judge and jury rather than doing what broadcasters supposed to do, inform and give balance and fair opinions.

Bad calls happen all the time , in every sports, everyday, just watch a baseball, football or basketball game.

If we spend all game talking about the bad calls we would probably miss half the game, that is exactly what happened in this world cup telecast, they spend most of the game complaining about the calls, it was annoying.

Actually it reminded me of a parent in a little league game that spend the whole game complaining about a bad call against her son "IN THE FIRST INNING" and I was sitting right behind her, can you imagine having to listen to the her the whole game.

I can, it happened to me.

Shame that such a great game had to be diminished by broadcasters who let their emotions get the better part of them.

Oh well I guess is just progress, this is the new "it" in television.

As always this is a fans opinion and from what I understand everybody has one and I'm grateful for that.

Enough said.

Fair enough but then Fauty was embellishing every call because she was mad at her...not what a broadcaster should do...agree..
