Bad commentator and bad referee!

Why is the commentator on bodog constantly shouting. It's really iritating and detracts for the fight. The really need to let some of the fighter who co-commentates do the majority of the speaking. The only guy more iritating in is the ufc commentator Mike Goldberg. He must be somebody's cousin. I don't know how else he could keep his job. They should get rid of him and just have Joe Rogan.

The referee in the Rea/Avellan fight was horrible. He didn't restart the fight on the ground after stopping for doctor check. And he let Rea get pounded without intelligent defense for far to long before stopping it.

I think you're referring to Colonel Bob Sheridan. If so I absolutely agree with you. I'm not bothered so much by his shouting as I am his complete lack of knowledge about MMA. I was watching an older bout from Costa Rica I think when he was working with Paul Lazenby. The fighter got into the full mount and Sheridan said, "And now he goes for that North/South mount." WTF? This is one of many possible examples.

Why can't they get a guy that knows what he is talking about AND has some charisma?

I was just watching bodog today, and he kept calling the spinning backfist 'that spinning move' even after the other announcer called it a spinning backfist. I guess its small details but at least they could have someone learn a bit about it before they start commenting.

Yeah, the Colonel sounds like he's got a mouthful of food every time he opens his mouth. He's is a terrible MMA announcer, and what gets me is that I went to bodog's website the day of the Fedor/Lindland fight when they first announced that this guy would be announcing, and they were putting him over as a complete expert in MMA and he knows so much. They made this guy's credentials sound so good, that I was very dissapointed when he actually started talking about MMA.
