I don't have Foxtel but could she be as bad as Karl Stefanovic?

I don't think anyone could be as bad as Karl Stefanovic :no2:

They have really irritated me tonight. Call the swimming, it is not the time nor place for an opinion piece.

Rebecca, it might pay to remember that people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.!

 

 

A quick google search has revealed some history that makes her attack on Nick D'Arcy more than a little disingenous.

I really dislike her and if she is on any show or radio program I would immediately switch off.

It certainly isn't, I am sure the phones have run hot to Fox sports.

This thread would probably hurt her feelings. :(

Well perhaps :) My dislike for them is for entirely different reasons though.

Karl is a bit of a tool, Rebecca is just a crass and nasty piece of work.

She's only "crass" because she's a woman. Male commentaters get away with the kind of sh*te she spouts all the time.

 

Did someone say double standards? :whistle:

Yes, SHE does.

Having a go at someone's criminal history is a joke when they have one themselves!

I have NFI who she is. I don't have pay tv, but Eddie Maguire is giving me the pip in a big way on channel 9.

I missed the Nik D'arcy but have just sat here whilst she basically said the china team where cheats or the swimmers where anyway.

Karl hasn't been too bad - I was expecting the worst but I haven't actually heard him do much. I've heard the NBC commentators in America have also been awful, sounds like Rebecca may be similar to what they've been doing. However, Canada's commentator Brian Williams has said some pretty awesome things, so I just need to work out how to get their coverage :p

:rolleyes:

No I am not. One does not have to be related to someone to feel empathy and have an understanding that teenage kids and young men can make terrible mistakes...particularly those who live with immense pressure.

I did however have a coffee a friend who has a son who was in the Olympic Squad. He didn't make it into these Olympics but he shared rooms with Nick on several training camps and my friend met Nick and his parents more than once.

She assured me that the public perception of Nick is nothing like the reality and that there is way more to the stories than has been reported in the media.

She said he was a polite and hard working young man who took her son (who is 5 years younger) under his wing.

Yes, I heard that she implied that the Chinese girl who won that race so convincingly could not possibly have got that time under 'legal' circumstances. :(

She is being slightly annoying but no where near as bad as channel 9....

 

Nick is always going to be a polarising comment and I am dissapointed they commented about it. Just say he is a polarising figure and leave it at that....

I also switched them off tonight after their opinion piece on Nick D'arcy.

 

The three of them have been annoying me anyway but this was the final straw!

I haven't heard anything of Rebecca Wilson, but I am annoyed with Foxtel. I was watching the gymnastics last night and all I saw were the Australians, I would like to see the other countries that are competing.

Rebecca Wilson says what your avergae Daily Tele reading is thinking. I mean, c'moooorn, you see an enormous, muscly Chinese (female) swimmer you don't *ping* steriods?. :wacko: Yeah well if you don't, then you're very young and/or forget the East germans etc from the 80s.

 

I don't often agree with her, but I think she gets way more shiz than her male equivalents in the profession.
