Re: the anti- Tim Gilbert posts

Who else is Channel 9 going to use if they don't use Gilbert? Phil and Paul have no affiliation with the network so can hardly be the face of the broadcast and it still be recognised as a Nine network production. Not that sure Gilbert's knowledge of cycling is that worse that Phil's nowadays and as long as they keep having Robbie McEwen there for special comments I can gladly put with a rugby guy doing a pre/post race segment for a few minutes each day.

Gimme a break...Zero knowledge or interest vs 30 years of passion and constant attendance at and commentary on all the big tours around the world.

Gilbert's all wrong and looked like he knew it.... He's probably in the pub laughing about giving a few skinny lycra wearing poofs a shave in his ute.

Its the 2nd year he has done the 'hosting' job and thats pretty much all he does, doesn't profess to be an expert or even try to be one. How do you know he has no interest? Gives the sport promotion to a new audience through live crosses every morning before each stage on the Today show which a non-nine employee would not be doing. Who should 9 be getting to do this? Phil has reached Lou Richards/Richie Benaud stage, barely gets half the riders names right. He has been the voice of cycling but best days as a commentator are behind him.

Why does 9 have to use one of its hackneyed presenters. They can't find any new talent? Or go get Al Hinds
