Since Channel 7 has actively chosen not to allow email feedback, let’s air some dirty laundry here, on my blog. Where few people are ever likely to read it. Sigh.
1. The tennis is on a delayed telecast here in Brisbane, so looking at the current scores online means you’re waaaay out in front when returning to the TV.
2. Jim Courier, commentator, is an annoying, disagreeable, bleathering wanker.
3. They’ve managed to sneak ads between games by cutting to a shot of a big screen outside the stadium, then superimposing their own ads on that screen with a poxy pseudo-commentator voiceover. Pure evil.
These bug the shit out of me, and I’m not even a tennis fan. Making a program more enjoyable with the sound off is a tricky feat, but they’ve managed.
