I dunno if it's a south Auckland thing but Samoans liking kfc is a thing and probably not appropriate to say in a commentary box. I am 100 percent sure it wasn't intentional, but someone might have been offended.

But Maxwell would do it on his first ball with 5 wickets down in the 20th over of a test match.

If you jump to that then maybe it is you who is the racist?

I know plenty of people - Samoan and otherwise - who enjoy KFC and we regularly joke about each other and our KFC liking ways.

I thought it was funny, but recognised it as something you might not want to say. As did Simon Doull who immediately was like "wtf, you shouldn't say that".

Tbf if you (I don't mean you) get offended by people who know you (I don't mean you) suggesting you (I don't mean you) eat a lot of fried chicken maybe you (I don't mean you) should stop eating so much fried chicken.

Are the NZ Sky commentators worse than ever? yes It's a crying shame more of them can't be removed for max fixing. Even Ian Smith is a fuckwad these days - too much exposure to the cunts who call the rugby. Whoever is providing the Sri Lankan colour commentary is just a whinging little bitch.

I've just had to turn the Sky audio off. On the plus side the endless stream of scrotum and poo jokes on the ACC is pretty solid - even with audio 30 seconds out of sync it's preferable to the double intellects of Squeaky Styris and Simon Drool.
