Thanks for the comments. My main point was that in the last 18 years Sky`s technical coverage has improved dramatically whilst Eddy and Stevo still appear to be fiddling about with an abacus. Any new viewer would not learn anything about the technicalities (or even basics) of our game listening to their commentary. It seems there is a little complacency with the Sky hierarchy, "well they`ve done it for 18 years, let them carry on". I agree, Brian Carney seems to be much more informed and articulate, if not him we could always try Statler and Waldorf, sorry, we already have!
I do hope that you know how TV works. The commentators are actually performers as far as Sky are concerned and play the parts that they are paid to do - they don't just sit there relying upon some stream of conciousness to keep them going but perform according to pre-arranged structures. If you have ever met or listened to Stevo speaking in public (off the screen that is) you would realise that he is highly intelligent and extremely knowledgeable about the game; more knowledgeable than the majority of posters on here in fact.
Your comments are like criticising a player for following the coaches game plan. Sky like is as it is - they get high satisfaction ratings, and probably don't read RL forums.
