Its hard for me to listen to Val. I actually think, in this 2 pro format, she is better at commentary than Nate but her voice is almost exactly the same as my ex... and it just grates on me...

I can't put my finger on it, with Nate.. he communicates the scene as if he doesn't realize we can see the action on screen. Maybe they are just too detached from the actual event so they over compensate with too much verbiage. But today they both sounded very tired and Val seemed to be slurring her words. Hope they get some rest for tomorrow's final FPO round.

I think Nate would shine just being the color guy with a true commentator taking the lead. Him and Spring seemed to do well together.

Yes I think Val and Jeff Springs(?) For FPO and Nate and Jeff for MPO would be good.


Although I miss Terry and Dixon. Probably in minority...

The honesty of Nate is great, he really says when someone is throwing bad and doesn't sugarcoat it like BigSexy for example.

He needs Ian to meter his pace and feed him topics or opportunities. Val does this, but she does it too frequently.

If I could double nice I would. I like Nate's accuracy.

BTW - this is gonna sound mean, but I don't mean it to. Val, no, players won't play both left and right in ten years. Just like they don't switch hit in baseball. It's hard to accomplish well. Yes, a few will, but it won't be the norm. Why would you anyway, when the forehand gives a close enough approximation to an opposite hand backhand throw?
