haha... I blame the BBC, Balders. I think they spent the entire sport budget
for the next century on Formula 1 and gave a big "screw you" to every other
sport. Sky have got all kinds of great commentators and pundits with
cutting-edge HD and CGI technology, the BBC got Lawrence Dallaglio in a
scarf with a pen and paper and some nasal Scottish bloke whose job it is to
pause the footage and point out where one player might have impeded another
player 7 nautical miles away from the action. Usually making sure we miss
the subsequent lineout/scrum/try.
