Do you listen to the commentary?
I usually turn it off to be honest.
No offense, but the last time I listened to a US commentary, I wanted to stick sharpened stakes in my ears to make it go away.
I settled for the mute button though
Heh. No offense taken. I keep the sound up so I can hear the crowd. Many of the comms we get are from the UK feed (the same guys who you'll get on Match of the Day when they roll through "the other" matches). NBC Sports has the Premier League rights and for their feature match we'll get Arlo White who used to work for 5 Live, but is obsessed with Man United.
When Fox had Champions League they would put American analysts like Alexi Lalas on and it was excruciating. I'd gladly take the Spanish feed over that. Now that it's TBS, I think they are using the UEFA-provided feed. I know Simon Brotherton did one of the matches. It's OK, but nothing to write home about.
The TBS studio commentary is embarrassingly poor, never more so then when Oguchi Onyewu, following a group stage match, referred to the "return leg" as deciding "the tie."
