Yeah I didn't like her when she was just on The Cricket Show and I sure as hell don't like her more after all these inane cutaway interviews saturating the coverage. Goes to show any one of us could have made a career out of hanging around at the cricket if only we were an attractive women who bones cricketers.

The answer is, mate, because I want to do you slowly. There has to be a bit of sport in this for all of us. In the psychological battle stakes, we are stripped down and ready to go. I want to see those ashen-faced performances; I want more of them. I want to be encouraged. I want to see you squirm.

You're right of course, there is (sadly) absolutely nothing unusual about a sports broadcaster being utterly incompetent at their job and the insinuation that she sucked any more dick than the likes of Mark Nicholas was uncalled for.

Her job is to do the human interest cutaway talk to fans in the crowd segment. She does that part as well as could be expected. Whether such segments have any place in the coverage is another matter entirely. But at least she isn't Craig McMillan or Mark Richardson arguing with Scott Styris.

We really need the World Cup to start so we can talk about that instead of arguing over this.

I would include pushing for less crap and more insight to be part of a sport broadcasters role especially in relation to their own contribution. She fails completely on that measure. Her segments are the worst part of the cricket coverage in New Zealand hands down.

Her segments are there to build hype for the world cup I don't think they're offensive or intrusive and i expect them to go away after or even before the tournament.

Good thing this standard isn't applied to everyone, otherwise channel 9 would have to replace the majority of their broadcast team.

Oh no, there's a conventionally attractive woman doing cricket things on my TV! I bet she's such a slut that she makes an early declaration and collapses her batting order, that whore. Am I right, guys? I bet she makes a sexy delivery with the entire team's leathery red balls, if you know what I mean.

She is just doing her job man. Less crap and more insight is kind of a lost cause when it comes to sports coverage the world over anyway. A perfectly competent presenter doing fluff pieces is hardly the worst offender in that area.

skytv ran an experiment where they literally fed a senile labrador suffering from distemper a dozen rotten eggs and left it in the commentary box for half an hour during the recent pakistan ODI, to see if anyone could tell the difference between the labrador and mark richardson.

it didn't go to plan when the labrador loving shat everywhere, shed all over the seats and then pissed itself but no one watching TV noticed and scott styris decided he liked the dog better than richardson and asked to make the switch permenant.

but richardson had an ironclad contract so they let the fucker back in.
