Castle needs sacking. And so does Becker.

Castle needs sacking. And so does Becker.

Not only for the "Go on!"  comment at end of 5th set...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/tennis/44834528

Check that out.  He's willing Nadal's ball to land - and then says "oh no!"  when djok returns it!  LMAO!

Not a sackable offence to favour a player over another in my opinion.. But yes he is a first grade fanboy tvvat

Not sure this is really such an issue. It seemed to me at the time he said was more he felt a near match winning point shouldn't be determined by luck, in this case a slip. Didn't change anything.

He’s rubbish, and his blatant bias is an unacceptable distraction.
I’d less use the expression ‘sacked’ in favour of just not using him.

Castle does not stop blabbing even during points, that’s what annoys me even more than his bias.

Mind you, Inverdale is just as pathetic.

Cotter has been the biggest dick in the commentary box this fortnight. 

Yesterday he came out with the gem "Kerber doing a Cash and a Nadal by going up on the roof on the box"

Total tool! Saw a Barry Davies documentary couple of weeks back in which Cotter wanted to measure up to Davies. Not with crap like that you won't!

It wasn't luck.  Nadal was forced into getting that ball by a good forehand.  And read my post again... he shouts "oh no!" when djok reaches a ball earlier in the 3rd set.

It IS a sackable offence.  It's completely against the BBC charter.  He was willing balls to drop in favour of Nadal and actively supporting Nadal through his commentary.

Does it matter??

The Beeb are hardly flushed with decent commentators. Anyone decent is pimped out to the outer courts. Which is why I am thankful the Beeb have lost most of the sporting events. 

They have been pushing the Fedal and Serena agenda for the last couple of weeks. The results are different. That's more than enough retribution for me. they didn't get the outcome they so desired. Watch them struggle not to mention Fedal today.

Agree that he is too biased. Loves Nadal and was on the cusp of declaring him GOAT a few years ago. Sycophant of the highest order.

But there are others that are even more fanatic about Federer. Sue Barker 'said Roger and Rafa' in the intro to yesterday's coverage for the semi-final. Didn't even bother to correct herself.

Lloyd is another one that constantly fawns over Federer

Does it matter?  Well, yes, it does - unless you like your tax dollars going to someone who is unprofessional.  I guess for me it's not too much of a problem given I don't have a TV and don't pay a licence.  

But Castle is being extraordinary amounts and is supposed to be impartial.  So.... depends whether you m,ind being a mug or not.  I don't.  And he ruins matches for me.

We’ve been here many times. The only really excellent commentator is David Mercer, and the best advisor/backup is Frew MacMillan.

The rest are whores to whatever reputation is on Court, or in the case of Becker and McEnroe, comedy turns.

Becker is currently saying that Anderson will have a lot of chances to come because Djokovic will be nervous as he hasn't won a Slam in a while.

Yeah.  Sure.  Let's forget:

1. Anderson is totally knackered.
2. Anderson showed no bottle in the US Open and isn't a champion.
3. Anderson hasn't won squat.
4. Anderson is just a serve bot and Djokovic is the best returner.
5. Anderson has won like 12 points on Djokovic's serve.
6. Anderson is 2 sets to love down!  FFS!

SHUT UP BECKER, you pecker.

My taxes go on a lot of unprofessional and useless wankers out there. So Castle for me is minute in those stakes.

There’s a reason TV remotes have a mute function. Not just for when your spouse feels they have something important to say that requires silence of the upmost, but also to drown out the Andrew Castle’s of this world.

You could always submit a complaint to the BBC citing parts of their charter that he infringed.

Try watching F1 on Sky with Hamilton. That’s proper partisan!

One of the reasons (there are others too) why I always hope for Vettel to win. It'sd ridiculous. Martin Brundle tries to keep the show sane but the rest of them are no more than fans.

Oh indeed. Dan and Ted are the chuffing pits! Any collision with Hamilton is deliberate and a crying shame! Herbert and Hill contribute nothing, Di Resta is showing some promise of a non-bias commentator. Brundle I like as he just wants racers to race and accepts collisions are part of it. 

One of my favourite past times when visiting 606V2 last year was reading Craig telling you how Hamilton was the better driver than Vettel because Vettel was outpointed by Riccardo one year.

The BBC golf coverage is crap. The commentators always talking up McIlroy's chances even if he was 20 shots off the pace! 

All I ever want to hear for once is a commentator give a competitor their due regardless of who they are if they've played well.
