    No Ted Lasso? :(

    • R.O says:

      I’m assume you are making a joke? If not, thank goodness not!

      I can’t stand the whole Ted Lasso concept. Dumb humor (if one can even call it humor). Reminds me of Adam Sandler, i.e. Waterboy humor. Idiotic and not funny.

    Marin tyler. peter drury. jon champion. my favourate three all time commentators are back. Especially tyler&drury are fresh from calling the world cup final with two different stations just four weeks ago in maracana. What an opening weekend!

  3. EPLNFL says:

    I would love Ted. Let’s start a e-mail campaign to get Lasso on the air with Arlo.

    • Flyvanescence says:

      It would be awesome for the lead-in segment where they talkti the commentators at the stadium during the pregame show. Obviously it would get old fast if they tried to pull it off in the actual game.

  4. DEE says:

    Please ban Lee Dixon from commentating! He just likes hearing his own opinions.
    Please bring Macca back! Love his humour.

  5. Linda Bess says:

    Arlo White SUCKS as a commentator. All he does with his verbal diarrhea is tell you what you are seeing/watching with your own eyes!! It’s SO f****** annoying. Am guessing he thinks that the audience has no idea what’s happening in the match – that we’re stupid. I have to turn off the sound when he’s on the schedule – he just spoils the whole match with his incessant blithering. And, he’s such a drama queen. Boring and annoying! I hate watching matches without sound but it’s a necessity – he just sucks all the enjoyment out of watching a match.
