Mark Nicholas’ Australian Love Affair

This guy is not my favorite commentator. Plummy Englishman Nicholas has been handed a golden opportunity to meet the Channel 9 Commentary Team on their own turf and give them some shit, but has morphed tragically into Australia’s #1 fan.

I decided to graph his comments in typical half hour period of commentary that were:

A. Embarrassingly eager crawling up Australian backsides, and
B. Everything Else

He made 16 comments during the test period, here’s the results:

Time on air – 30 mins
Score – Australia went from 3/99 to 4/125, losing Clarke
Overs – 7
Suckarse comment / minute ratio – 0.26

It’s not pretty is it? He must be hiding something big.

And Australian.
