Animal said:Don't complain until you've experienced the idiot Duffield.
At least Ligget has been a cyclist, speaks cyclist speak, understands team tactics, politics, and the goings on in the peloton, and makes an attempt to speak about these things in an adult manner.
Duffield used to spout completely unrelated crap in a vain and rather pathetic attempt to garner interest from channel-hopping viewers of daytime TV.
He was fskcing AWFUL.
Duffers was a cyclist, albeit his machines had three wheels as opposed to two.
I'm grateful that Eurosport have gently eased back on his appearances in both the commentary box and studio. Was it during last year's TdF that he described a rider as being 'built like a brick sh1thouse' while live on air (when serving as a guest in the studio with James Richardson)? I certainly DO remember he was wearing a rather brave all-denim outfit, slip-on shoes and white socks, which prompted Mrs Velodrama (not normally known for her interest in professional cycling) to enquire who the odd-looking man was.
