There is a saying - Say something enough times and you believe it - As I previously posted Kirby by his standards knew plenty about Mohoric - To say otherwise in this instance is silly.kenk09 said:I would expect the lead commentator on "the home of cycling" to know who Matej Mohoric is. That's not too much to ask. He was THE talk of cycling after he won the u23 World Champs. His descending technique was on every cycling website, and in every cycling magazine, all over twitter etc. Kirby didn't have a clue.DFA123 said:He probably does know more than 95% of the viewers. Does he know more than some of the tiny percentage who spend their days on specialist cycling forums and browsing procyclingstats? Probably not; and nor would most reasonable people expect him to.argyllflyer said:I'm of the opinion that the commentator should know more than the viewer, after all they're being paid to be informed.the delgados said:Kirby could mention every victory going back to Mohoric's junior days and still be criticized for not remembering the name of his first pet.
I'm guessing that close to 200 riders started the Vuelta. Only an autistic genius would know the history of each and every rider.
Good lord, people. What up with the hell bent, pathological treatment of my man Carlton Kirby?
He does a good job trying to keep Kelly awake.
The 95% that he's better informed than (I strongly disagree with that % by the way) should be informed by him, and they're not.
