Ten’s AFL Commentators

I went for a two hour walk to my post office box and back at about 2am, and found a letter, marked “urgent”, from a gentleman in Cobram in there, urging me to drop most of Channel Ten’s AFL commentators in favour of Kelli Underwood, an up-and-coming female commentator who caused a stir in 2005 when 3AW made her a match co-commentator [1], a move which Ten have repeated recently [2] during their NAB Cup coverage, making Kelli the first female to call AFL football on television.

I agree with the sentiments of the letter writer as I think Ten’s commentators are generally quite awful [3], and Kelli is a vast improvement, however I’m not sure what I can really do about it.

I think I’ll write back to the letter writer asking for permission to publish their letter in full as a “Letter To The Editor”. That’s probably the best thing that I can do under the circumstances.
