    WJC on TSN

    TSN replayed some of the highlights from the WJC this morning. In particular, the MS and MD finals. It was great to relive the spectacular action and to catch some of the crazy cheerleading characters in the crowd. All in all, I thought TSN did a creditable job putting the package together. They must have run commentary after viewing and editing tape... but sure sounded like the commentators were there watching live action. Also a great commercial on Richmond!

    Although I commend TSN for putting on badminton, I must say the commentary left much to be desired. From the 10 minutes which I caught of the mens doubles final, the commentator literally said 8-9 times that "Oh that was a good serve."

    It was just a regular low serve. No big deal.

    There were a lot of uninformative comments and both commentators had a generally weak badminton vocabulary.

    But hey, it's badminton on Canadian TV. They're forgiven.

    Beggars can't be choosers. Imagine if an Asian country televised ice hockey and had to overdub commentary in their native tongue, how that would sound.

    I can only guess the commentators were given a crash course in what to look for in badminton, and off you go. The "North American" style commentary was for the North American audience - at worse, the energy level made up for the lack of knowledge.

    I, for one, am just happy to get badminton on TV. Let's hope for strong viewership numbers which might prompt our sports networks to show more.

    Talk about ignorant.
    Just watched 2000 Olympics MDF Wijaya/Gunawan vs Lee/Yoo. The commentator was atrocious. Got Wijaya/Gunawan names mixed up thoughout the whole match..had to mute volume, couldn't stand his commentary. :mad:

    OTOH, give me the AE commentators anytime...
