Should BBC presenters be penalised for cheering for team GB over other teams?
The BBC today has been at the centre of a complaint around their snowboarding commentary regarding favouritism for team GB in the event two days ago.
No! No matter what country the commentators are from, they're going to be excited about and cheering for the members of their country's Olympic team. I feel as long as they're giving a running commentary on whatever athlete is currently performing at whatever event they're announcing instead of talking about someone not even in the picture, they're doing their job. Our US commentators get excited about our athletes, but they don't talk about them when they're announcing the run of someone from another country unless they're comparing, as with snowboarding, the current snowboarders trick or execution with one from the US.
