Sport is nearly rooted!
Destroyed, modified, changed.

Big dollars bring big bulllshiit.

Never thought I would see the day where I just don't give a big fat rats hairy testicle about any sport now.

It's all about the 'drama'. It's a distraction.

As George Orwell wrote........"Heavy physical work, the care of home and children, petty quarrels with neighbors, films, football, beer and above all, gambling filled up the horizon of their minds. To keep them in control was not difficult.”

    Some of the commentary, can they be that careless?!! In regards to the Caribbean beach volleyball and a Chinese team in something else.

    It's pretty harmless just the same, but blimey some commentators still fall for the three card trick.

    Here's a few and yes 100% exact quote as said in live commentary on sports.

    'And here's Moses Kiptanui, the 19 year old Kenyan who turned 20 a few weeks ago'.

    Bobby Robson the England football manager after playing Cameroon in the 1990 World Cup finals.
    'We didn't underestimate them. They were just a lot better than we thought'.

    This one from a live radio broadcast. 'Julian Dicks is everywhere. It's like they've got eleven Dicks on the field'.

    From horse racing commentator Ted Walsh.
    'This is a really lovely horse, i once rode her mother'.

    Remember being in the Perth Hay Street Tab for the match race between Better Loosen Up and Let's Elope. Great commentator John Russell was the caller. The Tab was lunchtime full, in the run you could hear a pin drop.

    John called 'We have a new leader' ...look he was right but for some reason the whole Tab just lost it.

    There was a beauty in the famous boat race they have between Oxford and Cambridge.
    ' I can't tell who's leading. It's either Oxford or Cambridge'.

    A couple of cricket gems from Brian Johnston

    The batsman is Holding the bowler's Willey.

    Illingworth has relieved himself at the nursery end.

    That is Neil Harvey at leg slip with his legs wide apart wailing for a tickle.

    How would this one go down today ?

    From the Crystal Palace chairman in 1991.

    'The black players at this club lend the side a lot of skill and flair, but you also need white players in there to balance things up and give the team some brains and commonsense'. 8-|
