  • Comment number 1.

    Whilst I enjoy watching live sport, is it just me that finds the commentators an annoying intrusion? After all, if you attended a footy match and were sat next to the likes of Lawro and Pearcey, you'd move seat wouldn't you?

    Is there any chance of a "commentary free" option on the red button in order that the viewer may watch the game with just the noise of the crowd in the background, maybe this could be trialled during the early stages of Euro 2012?

  • Comment number 2.

    This comment was removed because the moderators found it broke the house rules. Explain.

  • Comment number 3.

    I so like the suggestion at 1. above.

    I keep hoping the Red Button would be used make it possible for viewers to toggle between Graham Norton's and Ken Bruce's commentary for the final of the Eurovision Song Contest and hope there will be a commentary-free audio option on the Ceremonies at the opening and closing of the Summer Olympics.

  • Comment number 4.

    Just to keep you informed. It's Moto3, which is 250cc. Not 125cc as shown on the EPG for 20:30-21:30 tomorrow.
