Oh good.

For the purposes of clarity that was sarcasm.

Sky aren't the most moral broadcasting company on the planet and thats open to discussion. That doesn't mean we need idiotic over exaggerations and sarcastic pretend agreements. I put forward the possibility they may have tried to mislead customers, but it was only a theoretic possibility as we are unlikely to find out. I personally don't know. It may have been a genuine mistake? So seriously, lets try and discuss without taking the mick.
I am probably about as impressed as you with the Sky thing, henners, but we have to discern people's tone a bit on here, and I think it was clear Mr V means no harm and is just playing with a few of his comments.

Fair enough. Maybe I aimed a bit of my frustration at him when I have been provoked across many sources. I apologize to the mods for my tone and will resist the temptation to get as heated in future.

Thats fine. I shall not be listening to 5 Live though. I enjoy his writing but he is no commentator and I find him incredibly annoying. I think I would rather have Legard if I am honest.

Me too!

Out of all this it is only really Five Live that has ended up with a team that is less than brilliant.

I agree and I love finishing work early on a Friday and watching the Free Practice on the red button. Admittedly alot of it is pointless footage, but the commentary is what makes it. With James now involved its off to a bad start already IMO and I think I'll find myself going to iplayer if anything exciting is reported rather than listening to Allen for 2 hours on a Friday afternoon.

I agree with the rest of the lineup though. Its looking that the BBC are edging Sky slightly with the strength of the team and this is the first edition I have been disappointed with.

Weird choice from the BBC, Allen. I was never much angered by him myself (unlike by JL) but he certainly got up most other people's noses. BBC must've known that but signed him up anyway perhaps for lack of a suitable candidate interested in the radio gig? Should've checked for Perry McCarthy's availability perhaps.

James Allen! On BBC Radio Five Live! Get in there!

For the purposes of clarity that was also sarcasm.

I'm not sure about Allen on five live really. While I absolutely hated his ITV commentary his website is quite good. So while he may have been terrible shouting through the whole race, in the more laid back practice sessions he might work as he certainly knows what he's talking about. So I suppose I'll give him a chance, but in a few months time I might change my mind and be around the BBC studios with a shotgun

Will he be at the races or will he be locked in a studio in Manchester? I know which is cheaper.

James Allen was a rubbish commentator, but the practice sessions hardly demand much commentating. It just needs someone knowledgeable with plenty of chemistry with his colleague in the booth.

I'll make my mind up on this in Melbourne.

Well, not in Melbourne. When it's on the TV.

He certainly did. Does anyone remember the campaign that ran to get rid of him off ITV? The channel even had to release a statement about it if I remember correctly. I know there was a fairly large Facebook group with thousands of members related to the same thing and thats not to mention the twenty odd thousand "stop the c**k" t shirts that were sold in support of getting him off our screens lol. Such a strange choice by the BBC knowing how much viewers were angered by him. I'll be honest and say I'd rather have Legard than Allen. I won't be tuning into Radio 5 Live anytime soon and may sacrifice watching the practice sessions or at least watch them without sound. When I had F1 Championship Edition for the PS3, I changed the language format to German so the commentators would change because they used James Allen on that bloody game!!

PS: I do like his writing and his articles are very good. I often browse his website and feel he should stick to what he is good at.
