US Open - Johnny Mac has to go!
He's another thing to ponder, and i'm very curious as to whether or not anyone else feels the same way.
John's commentary is horrid....but it doesn't have to be.
The man can be so arrogant and pompous and such a big fat know it all that i've actually muted the tv during matches. Years ago when he started he was ok. He gave some insightful points and he even,(God forbid if commentators do this) gave some instruction or pointed out how players hit the way they do, (technique, footwork, raquet and string tension.... Believe it or not, many people who WATCH tennis Play the game. So it was nice to see him giving some pointers so some of us could learn a bit of what the pros were doing. Where did that go? John is just a hack now, he's a "face" and a "name" to boost ratings. And on a side note, if you've watched the Open, don't you think they could do away with the pointless "celebrity know nothin' bout tennis" interviews? Again a ratings issue. I was watching some stupid actress talking about her upcomming failure of a movie while an entire point was played...disgusting coverage and an insult to viewers who contribute to their ratings whithout so much as a thanks. No, we get pro wrestlers and the next Julia Roberts wannabe sipping champagne in the front row blabbin' about nothing and the network thinks this is cute? I'm no activist and i'm a reserved person, but i go to the open every year and make signs and make t-shirts and give them away complaining about this, (not surprising i've never been on tv). Anyway, when you watch in August keep this in mind. Anyone agree/ disagree?
