don't know about you guys but i got very frustrated at times listening to the commentators during a live tennis match broadcast. Whatever out from their mouths don't add value to the enjoyment.
How i wish i could just shut them out selectively.

you could just mute it. But sometimes they do say worthwhile things

Yes they can be annoying, but watching any sport without commentating or on mute is lifeless...

I remember when I lived in Europe you could push the equivalent of the SAP button(only there wasn't only a secondary but perhaps 6 or 7) and one option was no commentators, but you could still hear the players, crowd etc. I miss that.

That is an excellent idea. I would totally use that...

The BBC and John Barrett were wonderful 15 or 20 years ago.

They would talk, but only very sparsely - and would never run on. Just a word here, or a few words there... with the 'classy' British accent...

They would often show an entire changeover without saying one word.

Contrast this with the American announcers who view more than 3 seconds of 'dead air' with no human voice as an unpardonable sin.

The BBC is still the best - although they talk more now. And they've even taken the absurd step of hiring Mac the Mouth to ruin what was once the beautiful sound of a tennis match.
