Somehow, these same commentators fail to also let you know when free kick is being taken or they will opt to not describe wonderful solo run taking place. No, commentators are more preoccupied with some trivial statistic or the other.
Other humorous takes from certain maddening football commentators include why a German team playing against the English national team was hell bent on playing the offside trap against immensely mobile England strikers. What is so hard to figure out? Were the defensive players meant to sit back and let forwards run rampage towards their goal?
Another infuriating characteristic of some dumb football commentators is their annoying habit of wondering why particular team is not more active even during lull in action. Somehow, these commentators fail to realise that the players are human and do need to regroup and gather their senses before trying new ploy or even tried and tested one.
It you are normal football addict, then you must have visited the local pub to watch your favourite team in action. Even after having imbibed in a few, you would still be able to make out what kind of general action is taking place on field. Somehow, commentators seem to call things in a totally different way. One game had Sweden bombarding the England goal but was still being accused of sitting back and waiting. The same went for Trinidad and Tobago side reduced to ten men who, per force, had to dig their heels in and defend deep.
