  1. Saints Fan says:

    All looks good to me. Come on you Saints!

  2. Leafsfan1967 says:

    I wonder why Allan Parry is used so infrequently? Is he under contract to another company.

    • Christopher Harris says:

      He usually does the Sunday 11am commentaries, or the earlier Sunday ones. But if NBC use Arlo White, then there’s no Alan Parry. But Parry isn’t scheduled this weekend event on the world feed.

    • canadiansportsfan says:

      Yeah, he does games for Sky primarily. So that takes up one day or the other for him.

  3. Tayo says:

    Ok this might be off topic but am I the only one having MAJOR issues with the nbc online streaming? And don’t you think it kind of sucks that you cannot get support?

    • James says:

      You won’t get support because it’s a free service through your TV provider. If it was subscription based then you can expect support.

      Both NBC Sports Extra (online) and Extra Time channels have had issues the last couple of weeks. Last weekend two of the games on Extra Time channels kept blacking out. I hope they resolve the issues for this weekend and beyond.

  4. EPLNFL says:

    Another good line-up this week. The international feed is just so much better on NBC then it ever was on Fox. I am not a Fox brasher but that’s the facts.

    • InterPlace55 says:

      The World feed commentators and broadcasts since 2011 on FOX are always just the same, unless you mean by like suitability and stuff and it’s all the same for me.

      But one gripe I have is with Match of the Day on NBCSN when they used the world feed graphics instead of getting a clean feed and overlaying their own graphics like how FOX did with ALL the Premier League matches, live or delayed, they broadcasted since 2011

  5. abdirahman says:

    allan parry is under contract skysports he is their second leading commentator only behind martin tyler and he will be commentating sky’s coverage in sundays astovilla vs m,u. But still didn’t understand why he is not on the list of the championsleague coverage? Daniel mann has called all united’s matches in the group stage.will they call him again in the knockout stages?i really missed him. daniel mann is a fake commentator.he is good in the championship, not this level.

  6. Rizki says:

    Jon Champion&Peter Drury doesn’t Commentators This week?

  7. abdirahman says:

    for the viewrs around the world they will be hearing jon champion and peter drury for the big two matches vs arsenal &spurs vsliverbool.

  8. Ken says:

    Tony Gale was poor today. He can’t be neutral and his comments on Ivanovic were nothing short of embarrassing.

  9. frank says:

    Was it Le Saux or dixon who commentates for Spurs v Cardiff?
