Who would you like to replace Karl since Matchroom decided to keep have some of our favorite commentators preoccupied with other tasks this year?

I would like to see either a black guy or a Efren.

The Chinese have the best players in the world but I think language barrier will be a problem.

Since it’s an international tournament and all.

Have you ever heard Efren do commentary in English?

Why would you put a Filipino or Chinese person as a commentator for a tournament that they were not even a participant of?

I would have to bring a copy of the urban dictionary for translation.

I remember Jay commentating Earlís match at the World Pool Championship in Cardiff (1999 or thereabouts) and calling Earl an embarrassment to America and a disgrace to pool for his poor sportsmanship in that match. All of that was broadcast on BBC and Earl got quite upset about it. I donít remember who was Earlís opponent in that match. I hope Jay and Earl have since reconciled or else it could be a great opportunity for them to do so!

Accu-Stats have a DVD of the Medina-Varner match from Sands (1998?), with Efren and Jerry McWorter doing the commentary. Efrenís accent is pretty much incomprehensible to me. His command of English and pronunciation may have improved since then but somehow I doubt that.

I second Darren Appleton! Heís amazing. It may take you guys a little while to tune in to his Scottish accent but thatís an easy hurdle to overcome, imho.

Imran Majid is also a very good commentator.

I like Karl's commentary.
Are you saying replacement is needed
because he is unable or replace him
for a better option?
