Billy Incardona - Short Rant - 07-20-2014, 12:59 PM

At the end of last nights matches Billy Incardona said something that has been bugging me this morning. He couldn't figure out how to say the Ko brothers names so he called one of them "Ping Pong." Of course he quickly tried to cover it up by saying he was just joking. Joking or not I feel it was in very poor taste and unacceptable. Here we have Team CSI trying to provide great names from across the world and the commentators can't even take the time to learn their names. It's bad enough that they don't have an understanding of the tournament format. End rant.

Completely agree. Just because someone was a road player does not make them a good commentator by any stretch. People in the booth should be able to pronounce the players names and have a fundamental understanding of the tournament format.

I couldn't agree more. If you are going to commentate for a tournament, you need to understand the format. Take the two minutes to have it explained to you and make sure you have a proper understanding before you go on air. And take the ten seconds to learn the player's name, and how to pronounce them. Write the name down spelling it the way it sounds and keep that in front of you to refer to if that is what it takes.

Can't expect too much out of some commentators that are mostly in their late 70's and were raised in a time of high racism.

Some of these old timers probably think that the Ko's grandfather was responsible for pearl harbor because they're asian.

No, but I would expect they place someone in the booth who speaks with something higher than what sounds like a 5th grade education. They may be legendary players but they are extremely lacking when it comes to professional commentary.

How many people paid and are watching the stream anyway? Less than 500 worldwide? Just curious

I've been thinking that for a while myself but then people say that incardona and dileberto who sings songs from the 1930's on stream are the best commentators around.

Maybe there just aren't any younger guys interested in doing commentary?

I think everyone should grow some thicker skin. Nobody's perfect. You can't say anything anymore without offending someone.

Danny D. is horrible now. Doesn't need to be anywhere near a mic. As for TAR/CSI streaming the commentary is always the only unprofessional part of it. Everything else is usually OUTSTANDING. I enjoy Justin in the booth more than most of the others.

Perhaps....but we don't see other professional sports commentators making comments like "homie just made an awesome dunk" or....."that cracker is really swinging for the fences." It's not about offending someone. It's about common sense of which they seem to be lacking.

I have problems with comments on YouTube, just because one of our best commentators is black. Box! I think racism runs deeper than we think sometimes. Anyway, don't get me started.

Pool isn't every other sport, and I'm glad it's not. It's rough around the edges, just the way I like it. I respect your opinion though.

I suppose I might be offended if I were addicted to my own outrage, an Asian with no sense of humor, a woman, or an assshole, but I'm not. Yes, in today's day and age, people should know that they need to be tight-lipped and paranoid so they don't offend other white people who are monitoring their every move, so I guess in that regard, Diliberto should have one of his gold stickers taken away. Other than that, maybe all you shamers should go to the store and get some beef jerky, androgel, some skoal, and a case of shut the phuck up.
