I'm afraid I must insist you refrain from dissing Carlton Kirby. The man is a legend among mere mortals.
He calls the back-end of a bike race like no others and fills dead air like a seasoned raconteur.
Take it easy on Kirby and give the man the lurving he deserves.
Em no !!
Whatever his commentating abilities he is nasty about some riders
What he said yesterday about Nibali was uncalled for and he makes s*** up to improve the image of his favourites and knock those he doesn't like,,,,,He is a biased tool
Did he say Nibali sold his soul to work for a dictator who is known to torture those who advocate for democracy? Did he say his boss is responsible for wire-tapping journalists who simply want to tell a story?
If so, I like the guy even more.
If not, he's a guy who calls a bike race.
No need for the hate, imo.
First of all I don't hate anyone .... you cannot dislike someone nowadys but you are called a hater . I have an opinion about Kirby and I am entitled to it as I pay for Eurosport
He is a disgrace as a commentator ....that is my opinion and it is valid
As for Niabli ...his remarks on Nbali were personal , had nothing to do with his team , and were uncalled for ....He never questioned any other Bahrain riders nor did he take the high horse of why Bahrain is so much worse than say Russia who murder their enemies or say USA who have a facist , sexist racist in power.....
Kirby is not there to pass political judgement on teams and I didn't either ...you made it so
His remarks on Niabli were uncalled for and unsubstaniated and were about his personality as are his constant put down on TJ van Garderen coupled with his over the top hype of riders like Simon Clarke or Sebastian Reicenbach
The man is a buffoon and destroyes my pleasure of watching cycling
Yesteday he said ..." Sky had ran out of options " when they had Kwait up the road and Thomas sitting pretty
On the final he said he can't tell us what one rider said ....but it was 'eem off' ..he had no way of knowing what any rider says but he pretends as if he does and treats us like fools
he contantly bombards us with his theories than make no sense ...like Clarke winning MSR and talks as if it the best punditary
He uses over the top grandiose terms that take from the observers enoyment of the race and which make little sense while not understandign the flow of the race yet pretneding as if he can read minds, lips and has insider knowledge ...
He is the worst kind of commentator ...dishonest and bias
I could go on and on
But hey I am just a hater
Just saw this message now.
Sorry, didn't mean to strike a nerve. I was just goofing around and sent the message in a stream of consciousness state--i.e. I was drunk. No offence intended
Your comments regarding the Russian regime are well-taken.
I accidentally stumbled upon the human rights record of the Bahrain regime after they secured a UCI licence and they are truly terrifying. I guess it's just me, but I can't look at a race featuring Nibali's team without thinking that the guy who tortured dissenters with his own hands might be riding in the team car.
Sorry to be a downer, and I apologize for my bad writing. My message was not meant as a personal attack.
With that said, in the spirit of inanity, I will always go to bat for my man Carlton Kirby.
