Eurosport Home Nations coverage.

Is it just me, or is the shot replay transition aggravating the tits off anyone else?


 

Not as annoying at the commentary by, I think, Dave Hendon. He insists on filling every second with facts & stats, & will not permit any "dead air". It's snooker, a wonderfully visual game, & if Ronnie misses an easy black, we can see that for ourselves.

"And he's missed it".

There also seems to be an obsession with "average shot time". (How long, on average, to take a shot). When did that become interesting? Since when has snooker been a race against the clock?

By contrast, some of the expert commentators are very good, especially Neil Foulds.

First world problems I suppose.




An old post but I'll reply to it, because it's interesting.

The Emperor of Snookert, Mr Hearn decided a few years ago that players should take no longer than 30 seconds per shot.

There was even talk of docking rankings points for players who took longer.

What a nonsense.
