Alex Lely and Jeremy Jones are captains. Karl Boyes is a vice captain. They are my 3 favorite commentators. Karl might do some. I think Jeremy may have commented a match last year or the year before, but he didn't do many if he did.

Alex is captaining so I don't expect to hear him in the booth during a match.

Does anyone have a link to a match that John Schmidt commentated? I don't remember hearing him before.

I watched the match Earl recently commentated on before it was taken down. I was impressed. Do you think Matchroom would take him across the pond for this event?

Imran Majid is also a very good commentator.

Darren Appleton isn't Scottish, are you thinking of Jayson Shaw?

yorkshire accent. it can be harder to understand than scottish actually. but i like it, they tend to speak a little slower than southern brits. and darren is great at analyzing patterns. one of the best pattern players ever imo

i wouldn't mind josh roberts, chris melling or mark wilson, they are great commentators. nick varner is probably my favourite, but i don't know if he still does much commentary. varner and melling commentated WPS 8-ball, if you haven't seen those videos, it's a must. extremely educational

I watched that same match I think. I was impressed with Earl's commentating too. Earl was able to call what the correct shot needed to be and what english and stroke was needed on virtually every single shot. He reminded me of the Double J type of detail and insight into the game.

Fair point, although people from Yorkshire may disagree ;-)

I agree with you on those picks.

What about Big truck Ray Hansen?
I don't think that guy gets the credit he deserves.
He was one of the very first people doing pool
live streams. Every single year he has improved
the content, equipment, commentary, library,
and more.
I don't know how much commentary he is
doing recently and he's not a pro player.
I like his voice and take on the game.
Would like to see him considered.

Just gotta throw the pc crap in huh?? I want the best commentator. I don't give a rat's ass what color he is or where he's from. Efren would be a horrible choice just because his command of english is not good.

What a surprise here at azbilliards... all suggested are old white men in a thread titled with the implication of "color".

I can't believe Alex Pagulayan hasn't been recommended, or, yes I can.

Go whitey... go go... go whitey... go go... go whitey... go go

If you're racist and you know it clap your hands, if you're racist and you know it and really want to show it, if you're racist and you know it clap your hands.

Thread title ask for color commentator, as in minority, I don’t mind Efren but if it’s language barrier you’re afraid of then why not the Black commentator.

Ra Hanna is very good.

Pool welcomes everyone. No racism here.

Do you even know what a color commentator is????? A color commentator is the expert on whatever sport is being shown. As opposed to the play-by-play comment. It DOESN'T mean a person of color. That's not what the OP was asking about. In case you still don't get it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_commentator Ever watch pro football? The retired player in the booth is the COLOR commentator. The network talking-head is the play-by-play guy. Every televised sport uses this method.
