      Bob, I agree.

      It would be great if there was a service – closed captioning, for example – that could count the words of the lead commentator.

      I’ll bet anything Arlo talked twice as much today as Jon Champion, hands down THE VOICE of football.

      I said this weeks ago… I don’t remember Arlo’s brain leaking as much when NBC first got the EPL. I guess he figures we all tune in just to hear his rambling.

      On the plus side for NBC, Lee Dixon is a joy to listen to. Succinct, blunt, accurate, and funny all in one.

        All very true, cm asia. And in some ways White’s verboseness seems very American (so, I suppose, it’s fitting that he’s the lead commentator for an American network). Not that I have that many points for reference, but some of the best English football commentators (Martin Tyler and Jon Champion, in my opinion) know when to let things be, let the visuals and crowd tell the story.

        It feels similar in golf. Having watched some of the BBC’s coverage of the Open Championship and some of the European Tour broadcasts, it also seems the top commentators (Peter Alliss, Renton Laidlaw) call the action in a similarly low-key fashion, whereas on American telecasts you rarely have a moment of silence. Ah, to just have a bit of peace, to hear some birds chirping or wind blowing. It’s golf, after all, not a radio broadcast of a hockey game!

    Agreed…BEIN have the rights to a lot of leagues, la liga, serie a, league un, championship, swiss league, Russian league, NASL, world cup qualifiers, etc. And they only have 1 channel, I know BEIN en espanol is also out there, but I don’t have it available on my package. They do need a BEIN2, at least…they do show the 7:45 am championship game on saturday, but they rarely if ever show any 10am championship games due to conflict…

      One of my sources is telling me that beIN SPORTS will be adding college football (gridiron) to its programming soon, so there may be limited time for some soccer leagues than before.

        As if there aren’t enough networks already showing American football!

    High drama at Boro v. Brighton as expected…tied at 1, half an hour left for Brighton to find a winning goal, and the goalscorer for Brighton just got red carded for studs up tackle. championship continues to be a very exciting league.

      Excellent game! It’s a shame that beIN SPORTS doesn’t show more Championship games.
