    The FOX commentators are terrible across the board particularly DiCiccio and Whitehill. FOX needs to learn that just because someone coached or played soccer doesn’t qualify them to be an effective announcer. Most of them sound like total idiots who flunked high school English. Or maybe they are intentionally dumbing it down which would explain the “Doctor” having to explain the rules.

    Cat Whitehill is the worst. She announces like the players are her kids on a U-13 travel team, constantly calling them by their first names, cheering them on, ignoring the replays when she’s wrong on an offsides or a foul.

    Whoever was the commentator who just spoke on 6/30 after the Hope Solo piece – is a complete an utter a hole who thinks his sh*t don’t stink.

    Where did they dig Dicicco up from? Did he have a stroke or has he always been a complete tool???

    The commentary by Dellacamera, Whitehill, DiCicco, and Taft (according to the schedule) was as mediocre as the play of the US team. The commentary was a striking combination of cheer leading, wishful thinking about US superiority, and misrepresentations of its “feared, dynamic attack,” etc. It was incredibly at odds with what was happening on the field: a meager 1-0 victory against a very inexperienced Nigerian team that played with 10 “men” for the last 10 minutes. Next time please: call it as it is, not as you desperately wish it to be.

    If you haven’t heard her commentary yet, Danielle Slaton has been amazing. I hope she gets a good look by the networks, because she’s been excellent!

      I don’t think she is all that great… I am listening to her in this Brazil v Spain game and she has not yet once said anything complimentary about the Brazilians.

    After, what??? some 40 years — and you all will excuse my jingoism here I’m sure — North American accents are finally calling the action in a major world soccer event. Thank you, Fox Sports.

      They were 20 years ago on ESPN. Problem is most of them suck. Getting the top British and Latin commentators is called progress. FOX is useless at soccer though, and think the American viewing audience is as naive as we were 20 years ago.

      • Joe

        Progress would be you moving out of the US to a place where all you hear are non North American accents. Then you can be a real Euro poser wana be! BTW I love Fox!!

    I do not know who the announcer is, but would someone please tell him that the German player is MITTAG, not Mitzag. He is driving me crazy!

    Referees and commentators are ruining the game.
    Horrible amateurs.

    The worst commentator: JP Dellacamera (Keeps reminding us of what minute they’re in…it’s TV, we’re watching the screen! Also, he only knew the name of ONE Nigerian player…the Keeper!)
    The BEST: Jenn Hildreth and Kydra de St. Aubin (GREAT commentary during the Japan/Switzerland match; they seemed to know the names of EACH player!)

    • Johnny

      June 9, 2015 at 8:20 pm

      I am watching Brasil vs South Korea.
      Jenn Hildreth and Kydra de St Aubin are
      horrible.
      They need to learn the rule first before start saying aomething about football.

      JP is an American soccer commentary legend and is loved by many. He is getting great reviews for his work in this world cup. You are delusional.

      • Flyvanescence

        June 9, 2015 at 11:36 pm

        I call it like is see/hear it. Dont care about your history. Dellacamera is terrible. Maybe he once was good but that is the past. He is worse than some of the goons calling games on talksport.

        Dee Cee’s points about him are fair.

        • Joe

          June 10, 2015 at 10:45 am

          Of course becasue you have a hard on for English accents as proven in your other posts. If he had an accent you would love him!

          • Flyvanescence

            June 10, 2015 at 12:52 pm

            That is a total crock of BS. if you actually bothered to read my post, i implied that Talksport’s [British] commentators are pretty bad.

            In fact my first instinct when i hear and older English analyst is not to trust them, and many know nothing the modern game.

            Just because i have a problem with MLS doesnt mean i hate American footy. I like to think the opposite. But some people cant tell the difference.

            Oh wait you forgot to call me a Eurosnob.

              Plus 1 for Fly. The mls fanatics are out for new blood beware.:) Glad to be on your side. 🙂

        • Dee cede

          June 11, 2015 at 5:51 pm

          Thanks Fly! I also get tired of his hypothetical “what’s the player’s mindset” questions! Just like I do with Vitale, I turn the sound down. Go USA!

        just because JP has been around forever does not, in and of itself make him a good commentator.
        he calls soccer like hockey, refers to the touchline as the sideline, has simplistic expressions like “goin’ long” and has repeatedly referred to extra time as “overtime” over the years. The Americanization of a British game makes about as much sense as the Britishization of an American game (like baseball).
        JP is simply the best of the worst (actually he has been far surpassed by John Strong who is actually good).
        Let’s stop with the “JP is the Vin Scully of soccer” just because he has broadcast longevity on his side.

        • Flyvanescence

          June 13, 2015 at 10:26 pm

          Exactly

      • Roger

        June 16, 2015 at 9:41 pm

        It’s Di Cicco I hate. He’s always critical, even of his fellow commentator’s assessments. In my opinion he is completely redundant. The best commentators don’t over analyze permitting them to convey excitement rather their own knowledge of the game. Top for me is Slaton.

  11. kenni

    June 8, 2015 at 8:46 pm

    I thought I was the only one…Too much over analysis and ‘know it all-ism’. They need to do more homework and focus on the players names instead of analyzing…that’s what the guests and contributors at the halftime report or after the match are for.

    I am ashamed of the Fox sports Woman’s world cup commentators. In the Norway – Thailand game today. The Thai keeper stopped a penalty kick. As a fellow keeper I understand the meaning of stopping one. It is just about one of the hardest and most difficult to do. Your commentator Aly Wagner on national T.V. said “she just got lucky” and “it was only because she took a horrible shot” then “she shot it at just the right height for her to be able to get it. This is pitiful to be coming from a so called professional. That keeper has earned her spot and worked just as hard and as long as any other player on the field. She ruined a life long memory of success for that player. She should apologize for her ignorance immediately, that keeper deserves better than that.

    • Lost Angelino

      I agree, sounds like she had a keeper or two block her penalty kicks during her playing days.

    • Erica Andrews

      June 17, 2015 at 1:19 am

      Fox’s commentators, especially for the first few opening matches (including the pitiful Justin Kutcher and Aly Wagner commenting on the Thailand-Norway match) were completely unbalanced in their color commentary.

      They had plenty of background stories on Norway and Germany, but hardly any at all on their two competitors, Thailand and Ivory Coast.

      It’s as though they weren’t even trying. Several times they bluffed their way through pronouncing the Thai names, botching them badly, and then giving up almost entirely by match’s end.

      Other Fox commentators weren’t nearly this bad.

      And the TSN commentators on Canadian TV, and the BBC commentators, were head and shoulders above the Fox commentators.

      I, like you, am ashamed of the Fox Sports commentators for the Women’s World Cup.

      Considering this is the network that forced us to put up with Gus Johnson calling Goetze Gurtzer for an entire UCL campaign, I’d say be happy it isn’t worse than it is.
