An argument could be made that they were too critical. Moffat's spray against the '92 rules (during the Winton telecast if I remember correctly) was close to libel.
Moffat's spray against CAMS during the 1978 Hardie (available on YouTube) around dry-break fuelling after a pitlane fire was something to behold

As are AFL, NRL, BBL commentators, so I don't really see what the issue is.

There are journalists who are independent enough to talk about the things that need to be talked about.

Anybody complaining about the in-jokes in racing, just watch a bloody AFL telecast, or a survey during the cricket....

Which in some way highlights the problems of commentating in corporate owned sports.

A suggestion for a school essay would be to compare and contrast Neil Crompton's commentary, in particular his commentary towards the organising and sanctioning bodies of motorsport, from the period 1979 to 2018.

In the same vein do we hear Chad Neylon or Noonz have a crack at the organisers of any of the racing they commentate?

They commentate over lots of non-corporate owned sports, but I've yet to hear them tee off.

The fans of the sport want to see what is in front of them described and analysed, if they want to read about the politics they can flick to the back of the paper.

Now that on the other hand.

Just watch winton in 2003 to see him engage with Collin Bond over that awful call where CL half spun infront of Murph only for the 51 to get a drive through,

the video supercars recently uploaded cuts out the best bit
