      Got to be honest, didn't much care for his commentary, never quite understood why he was so revered, apart from his longevity.

        Iím undoubtedly biased in my views, both being a Dodgers ďFanĒ and having met him 7 years ago for a documentary I was making about the Ď75 Masters.

        I really liked his ability to tell stories through his commentary, and his relatively short spell as a golf commentator was brilliant imo, and the kind of voice that is lacking today.

          As you say, he was certainly distinctive and unmistakable, and I know he was loved by many, but I just couldn't take to him, can't even remember why now to be honest.

          Same applies to John Motson, for me anyway.

            Thatís fair and itís such a subjective thing anyway. Looking at audience reaction to all sports commentators today, I donít think thereís a single universally loved voice. Like I have done, we tend to canonise the voices we miss, the voices we grew up with or the voices we associate with a particular sport at a a particular time.

            Peter Allis and Murray Walker are good examples of this (and there are many others), but Ewen Murray (and Andrew Cotter) and Crofty are as good today as they were. Imo of course.

            Golf commentary is particularly unusual too. Because of the pace, It tends to be a predictive commentary rather than reactive, and the knowledge (research) needed is arguably greater than for a football match for example.

          Baseball is shite as well as American football.
