Brian Moore being dismissive of Eddie Butler is fabby
Depressed and perplexed as usual by how jingoism and prejudice can cloud the facts when watching (and commentating on) rugby. Eddie Butler, Brian Moore and Clive Woodward were telling us yesterday how England completely dominated in the scrums, yet the stats say they won the same number the French and lost one more. The penalties awarded to them when scrums were breaking down in what appeared to be a more spectacular way was possibly because they were going for the 8 man shove instead of hooking (that possibly accounts to them losing the 2 scrums where they failed to shove the French backwards off the ball) but they also conceded more penalties, missed twice as many tackles and made one more error. Make no mistake, England well deserved to win yesterday by playing badly but doing all the right things (especially when St. Andre took off his winning team and replaced them with the numpties that had lost to Italy and Wales). They've a distance to go before they're the finished article but It's the first tru ...
It could have been worse, we could have had "English" Eddie Butler commentating. He and Brian Moore should get a room!!
So you missed Brian Moore complaining that the scrums aren't refereed properly and Eddie Butler's impenetrable commentary
Commentary of Eddie Butler, Brian Moore, is outstanding and entertaining. Good point - why are France taking off best players
do u think Eddie Butler & Brian Moore should do a job swap with Jim Nantz & Phil Sims? I think would b up 4 it
Having watched the Rugby League World Club Challenge on Sky last night, England v France in the lesser version of Rugby today and a programme on the F1 channel on Sky, I've come to the conclusion that if a commentators Christian name is Eddie, then you are in for a biased, ill-informed and downright crap commentary. Eddie Hemmings on Sky Sports Rugby League programme is biased against any Superleague team playing overseas opposition, be it Club level or International, Eddie Butler is SO anti-English that it's embarassing ( along with his ridiculous attemp at French inflections when pronouncing Morgan Parra's name; more like Officer Crabtree in 'Allo 'Allo ) and Eddie Jordan on the F1 is just a total fool. It's time he acted his age. So there it is; if a sports programme has a commentator or presenter named Eddi, you might just as well turn off.
What was that odd line from Eddie Butler about James Haskell?

This afternoons Rugby at The Bear England v France. (Kick-off 5.00pm). John Inverdale is joined by Jeremy Guscott, Lawrence Dallaglio and Thomas Castaignede to present coverage of the third match of the championship for both teams, which comes from Twickenham. These sides entered as the favourites to win this year's tournament, and while England have lived up to expectations so far with wins over Scotland and Ireland, the French have suffered disappointing defeats at the hands of Italy and Wales. Commentary by Eddie Butler and Brian Moore
I find Andrew Cotter so, so funny. Eddie Butler and Miles Harrison are then also good at their job- Butler has a great voice.
The art of Sports commentary has sadly gone bad. No longer do I spend a teenage insomniac night in Winter listening to Jack Buck or Hank Stram. Nor do I spend an insufferably mild Summers night with Vin Scully or Ernie Harwell. Coming across this side of the Atlantic - a John Motson 'Zico, oh what a turn!' or a Barry Davies 'Is Gascoigne going to have a crack? He is you know - oh I say!' A remark by Ted Lowe, a witty riposte from Peter Alliss, a Richie Benaud rememberance, a Peter O'Sullevan utterance, a Murray Walker mishap, a Peter Jones comment on an Alan Devonshire mazy run. Today commentators speak with mostly ear-splitting decibel levels. Yes there are exceptions to the rule: Joe Buck, Al Michaels, Jim Nantz, Jon Sterling, Simon Holt, Martin Tyler, Alan Parry, Eddie Butler and ones forgive me, I have temporarily forgotten. That is why I still listen to the Radio. It takes me back to a time when commentators framed the image in your head for you. They talk/ed with clarity of speech and thought. Yes . ...
So a potential leg breaking stamp nothing, and no comment from Eddie Butler. Haskell was slowing the game down deserved yellow
"England flood down this left side" - Eddie Butler but did he mean Toby Flood or general flooding?
Rugby at The Bear Ireland v England (Kick-off 3.00pm). John Inverdale presents coverage of this afternoon's fixture at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, which concludes the second round of matches. The opening weekend's results, which saw the Irish overcome Wales, England defeat Scotland and France suffer a shock defeat in Italy leave this match already looking like a pivotal encounter in deciding the destination of the title. The hosts will perhaps go into the contest as slight favourites, having not lost a Six Nations match against the English in Dublin since 2003. With commentary by Eddie Butler and Brian Moore, and analysis by Keith Wood, Jonathan Davies and Jeremy Guscott
Being at work today has really made me realize how much I want to get this comedy thing going. I know the chances of making a career out of it are slim, but I'm going to try. Hopefully I can get a new schedule soon or find cool people to shift trade with me every now and then *cough* Brittney Clevenger, Eddie Butler and Megan Smith *cough* But
Eddie Butler and Brian Moore should commentate this. Would make it far more interesting to watch.
Will Hutton, Eddie Butler and Victoria Coren also worth the cover price on their own
Eddie Butler. Do us all a big favour. Take your prattling drivel off the box, out of our lives and retire from broadcasting quietly and quickly.
