Its half time in our beloved Rovers battle with Chelsea. Were 1-0 down courtesy of an own goal, but that is not what has me frustrated. What has me angry, yet again, is the commentary.
The match begins, were without our best player in Dunn- and there is no mention of his influence on the team. The commentators briefly say our only chance is scoring from set peices, yet fail to mention the impact the loss of Chris Samba will have in this area. They then justify this claim by saying 'Nelsen and Olssen are good in the air' or something stupid like that.
Do they even know who Blackburn are? Have they watched a Rovers game this year? Nelsen is a club legend, but has only scored one goal, and as for Olssen....
The first half was then dominated by talk of Chelsea, who is missing and why, Ballack to Drogba to Anelka... If my eyes were closed i would think Chelsea were playing themselves. Add to that, Robinson is making brilliant saves- and there is no mention of his recent form, England prospects etc. Why? because it is apparant that the pair of esteemed commentators have not bothered to watch a Rovers game, or at the very least, talk with a Rovers fan for more than 3-5 seconds.
If I am watching the cricket, I get balanced commentary that gives me an insight into teams. I learn a little bit of history. I learn tactics, club issues and get a balanced view of who is playing; all this is usually provided by commentators.
Now i can not speak for everyone, but i am a lover of sport- and in no other sport have i experienced such biased and clearly uninformed commentary. It makes the whole viewing experience less enjoyable and trivialises our club. As a viewer, I learn nothing. As a supporter, I feel frustrated. And as a lover of sport, I feel I am being sold short by the Premier League.
Its time to change this ridiculous trend. Lets get informed people with informed opinions, not the same crap week in week out.
Well said my Aussie Compatriot.
