Recommended Posts

"Superstar racing commentator Mr. Clean is BACK behind the microphone and the breeze is ON here in the Northlands as the M32 Cat fleet readies for 8 days of shit hot racing over the next 12."

OMG, FFS, too over the top! :rolleyes:

Billy, you've been here way too long to expect anything of substance from the FP.

 

and even worse, I'm gonna have to go look myself now. See what you've started!

Didn't watch because of you. I would've watched regardless of who commentated although the Copenhagen guy was really much, much better. I even commented on how good I think the series does with their broadcasting in the other thread. I'll have to write M32 to make sure they know this.

 

If there's any significant uptick in the ratings, it do to publicity here. Not your skill as a commentator. I'm sure that comes as a package deal though. Suffer with clean for the publicity.

 

The dirty jokes bit was pretty classy, nice way to them down to your level.

Hey guys I think you are missing the point. Alan has said many times he is not a journalist. His style is designed to appeal to a certain audience with a view to growing that audience. He is kind of the Rowdy Roddy Piper of sailing. The WWE must be shitting themselves.

We can learn a lot about promoting sailing from the WWE. This should be added to the SA end of season awards night.

I hate to be all milquetoast here but the M32 series is fun to watch and it's great you can watch it at your leisure and fast forward though all wind delays etc. Sure, the commentary is not Murray Walker and Martin Brundle, or Murray Walker and James Hunt, or Martin Brundle and David Coulthard (an underrated pairing in my opinion) for that matter, but it's fine. I should add having done lots of on-site commentary in other sports, that filling large time gaps is really hard especially when you have limited support so you need people who can extemporize at length on the flimsiest of pretexts, like our Mr. Clean. I would also argue that he's getting better and more professional as time goes on, and as he is able to cover events like this with more infrastructure, rather than say Moth worlds with one camera on one boat.

The coverage is decently knowledgable (though I'd sure like to hear more about how they adjust the Cunningham, a favourite topic amongst F18 people) and the guys often have some good insight on the shifts since they're on sight. I'm blown away by how good drone coverage is getting for these limited production budget operations. Overall I'm very glad it's on.

Yep and my work number, mobile number and work email all of which he got from my website and all of which he has used to harass my staff and myself many times in the past. He is one seriously deranged fuck and has a long history of this shit. He coped a boom in the head a few years back (he can't sail for shit) and it has turned him into one sick puppy. He posted my name (again) on the AC board yesterday, I have reported it to the mods and hopefully they will punt him (again). Won't matter because he just comes back with a new log on name.

That is maybe why he isn't posting today, but it could be because it is fathers day today and that is a very confronting and confusing day for him. Not knowing exactly which one is his father, he has to ring all 15 members of that Wellington Rugby team that bunned his mother that crazy, drunken night some 50 years ago. But maybe it wasn't any of them either as he certainly didn't inherit any sporting prowess from anyone...

Speedy ignore LB, because to my trained eye it sounds as though that boom knocked you "gay", not stupid.

 

While I'm sure you're enjoying the upside of slippery electro/pneumatic clothing and friends called Cyril and Cecil; the intricacies of Broadway musicals and wet-weather-gear-matching must be getting you down. Well son don't despair, I'm partway through inventing a cure for same-sex attraction and looking for a volunteer to participate in a clinical trial.

But the FUCK's like Life bouy 15. Speed demon, Jack sparrow ...who post irrelevant and totally off topic BULLSHIT are cluttering this site and making it difficult to enjoy threads about SAILING on a FUCKING SAILING web site.

 

FFS will you guys PISS OFF...especially Life Bouy 15, and Jack Sparrow, who are just perverse deviants. And while Speed demon talks mainly AC sailing, the repetition is FUCKING BORING.

 

I call on the sane members to keep reporting these people who post off topic/non sailing (in the sailing related threads) or repeat themselves endlessly until they FUCK OFF,!

 

Cheers

The dirtiest joke was the one sent in by the owner of the M32 class and World Match Race Tour, who gave us the idea in the first place. I'm a lucky man to have the privilege of picking who I want to work for.

Cut the guy a little slack, he has greatly improved in his commentary. Anyone who started off as poorly as he did should have the ability to get a little better.

I agree that Clean is not terribly inspiring and totally partisan, but at least he's improving little by little. Still, I cannot understand why the bigwigs at SA make such fun of Tucker Thompson's commentary efforts when theirs are still so amateur.

Back when we didn't get psychologically damaged from getting our butts whacked, we at least got to sign the "board of education" that was kept in the vice principal's office. Not sure if that was a very good deterent. I think the kids with multiple hash marks next to their names were pretty proud of their accomplishment.

 

I've thought it would be cool to get a speeding ticket from the local harbor patrol: "I'm sorry officer; there was a gust, and I couldn't slow it down. I'll try hard to not let it happen again. Could you please write the speed I was going on the ticket?" Yep, I would frame that one.

By now LouLou would have made her way to NZ as carry on luggage (to avoid getting pinched by no6's baggage handler cousin) and now probably sits in pride of place at some yacht club, behind the bar in her retirement years amoungst the ties and jackets that are available for members who have forgotton theirs or have a visitor in need. She always seems to sport a cute smile on a Friday night, become unavailable, but then reappear that weekend ...somewhat dishevelled. Now the stories she could tell!!

I actually spent three weeks in Ockerö at WMRT/M32 owner Hakan Svensson's place at his invitation; I told him I thought his vision for the M32 and WMRT was pure fantasy, and he made it his goal to convince me otherwise because he knows Sailing Anarchy is the world leader in sailing audience. He succeeded, and that's why I am here working instead of hanging out with my new baby girl!

I am the senior editor of a niche sports website that reached over 3 million people last year and that has embarrassed every one of the bigger-staffed, bigger budgeted sailing publications with our worldwide reach, everending stream of original content, and breaking stories for the decade I've been here. I'm also the voice of the only non AC series with a major broadcast effort, which just happens to have the biggest cash prize ever awarded in the sport as its easter egg next year. I'm pretty happy, but what else did you have in mind?
