“1 star because 0 isn't an option ”

written by Reeseem280 on 27/06/2022

Woke propaganda because apparently putting propaganda out on only Sky News isn't enough, presenters spitting at little girls, the price goes up but the quality goes down. It's a farce from top to bottom.

“Move Nick Dougherty to something else”

written by BAG007 on 04/02/2021

Sky Spirts Golf: Nick Dougherty is quite dreadful - he’ll never make even a half decent commentator. He’s seems to have prime slot even though he’s by far the weakest member of the team. He’s managed to ruin coverage of the last two majors in 2020 and he’s now been put on the European Tour. And he gets to lead on skills chats too - he’s everywhere. Why is this? His voice is flat and colourless, and if that isn’t bad enough, even worse is his non stop wittering on and on, telling us the blindingly obvious or what we can see with our own eyes or absolutely inconsequential rubbish. And then there’s his hero worship of Rory - that is seriously tedious - he doesn’t seem to understand the his dear Rory is most definitely NOT the best player in the world! How insuring that is to all of those who are demonstrably better! You have some really good people - Wayne, Ewan, Tim and Richard are outstanding; most of the others are ok if not brilliant - at least they don’t have us shouting SHUT UP every few minutes...... Thank you! Please, please give him something else which won’t ruin our joy in live coverage - end of day review which we wouldn’t watch anyway, for example. Take him off the majors and the European Tour we beg you.... ideally off the American Tour too!

Dan7385's Response to BAG007's Review

Written on: 13/03/2021

Totally agree. The Players tournament is now dreadful, with advert breaks every 4/5 minutes. Stop showing leader boards/ flashbacks of yesteryear/ stupid end of round interviews with players/ past performances/ fed ex standings blah blah blah and for goodness sake show more golf.
Shame that BBC no longer show the golf!!

Bag007's reply to Dan7385's Comment

Written on: 15/03/2021

If only one could get through to SKY Sports producers with our comments - I've read other reviews almost identical to mine, but I have to assume they're either not read or they're ignored. The Players was ruined just like the PGA - Nick D seemed to be on air 90% of the time, and I found myself shouting at the TV for him to shut up and stop wittering on in that droning voice - its wonderful to have the brief spells when he's not in evidence.

What really worries me is that he seemingly has acquired a lead role, and with the Masters coming up, I fear he'll ruin that the way he did with the PGA. I couldn't believe that having lost his idol Rory after two rounds, he still managed to bring his name in on the final day saying what Westwood needed was some Rory magic! For goodness sake, I yelled, that's the last thing he needs after Rory's performance earlier! I know he was referring to Rory's last few holes in 2019, but for goodness sake, that was 2 years ago and pretty irrelevant today!

If anyone knows how to get comments seen and taken into account by SKY, please advise.

Rubyemma16's Response to BAG007's Review

Written on: 16/07/2022

Well it's July 2022 and he's still there!! Inexplicably..... the guy can't string a comprehensible sentence together, he can't structure a question and the cod reverence for Rory and Tiger is laughable. He has literally nothing to say but he says it anyway....at considerable length. We too shout at the TV. And don't get us started on Paul McGinley!!

“Golf Commentators”

written by 65Batchelor on 30/08/2019

In general the standard of Golf Commentators on Sky Golf is excellent; however there is one, recently taken on, who lets the rest of the team down. His voice is boring, monotonous and there is little or no intonation in his delivery. The real annoyance is that he talks too much; the art of good commentary is knowing when NOT to speak, a facet which has clearly passed him by. All my friends who watch golf on Sky agree with my opinion and looking at other reviews and critiques, so do the majority of other watchers. His colleagues though are excellent, which makes his contribution even worse; it is even worse than the American commentaries, which is saying something! I recommend that his contract should, on no account, be renewed.

“Golf coverage”

written by Reed174 on 23/07/2017

Pretty tired of sky coverage just following the top 3 world ranked players regardless of whether they are playing well or not. Todays coverage of the open just following Rory Mcilroy who is 2 over par while the leaders are at 5 under. THERE ARE 71 other players at the open, can we watch some of them????????

“Overpriced Sky Sports”

written by odBuchanan459 on 01/07/2017

Sky Sports is now so overpriced that it is now unaffordable by many sports fans. I am also fed up listening to so called pundits. Shows now comprise more time dedicated to pundits and introductions than actual sport watching time. Get rid of all pundits and get back to basics of showing the sport.

“Happy but unhappy”

written by Emmyj488 on 13/03/2017

I love Sky Sports but have an intense dislike for a couple of commentators. Whilst this might sound like a minor issue, it is an issue shared by many of my sporting friends. First, golf commentators, I love most and have my favourites but Mark Roe is the most annoying and blatantly English and British commentator. His knowledge seems also geared towards getting golfers to come to him for short game lessons. He could have done with more lessons himself as he was a non entity on the European Tour. Football-wise, Gary Neville and especially Jamie Carragher are so former team biased that it's boring. Mediocre footballers don't always make for good commentators and these two display the same level of mediocrity that they displayed on the pitch. Just because they played for big teams, doesn't equate to knowledge. Gary Neville = England and Valencia as an example, a failure.

Sickfedupwithsky's Comment

Written on: 09/07/2017

Totally agree. Plus, the coverage has been totally dummed down to the level of American broadcasting. "Featured groups" focuses on a minority of players meaning we get unbalanced viewing. And I don't mean red button groups - the normal coverage is incredibly limited. Can't believe I'm going to have to suffer The Open with these prats.

“Trying to see the Masters live wish BBC had it Already...”

written by SymeT on 07/04/2016

Trying to see the Masters live wish BBC had it Already seen more electronics and pundits but too little golf Switching to radio. Sky gets worse losing football to BT and missing the golf while they talk guff.

“Contempt towards loyal customers”

written by davidzinkin on 16/09/2015

They have no concept of loyalty towards existing customers. I've been with them for 16 years and yet they are unwilling to offer me the same deal they offer new customers.I've cancelled my subscription

“Save your money! ”

written by uuMyrick68 on 17/04/2015

They sold me sky sports based on the facts that you can watch any game in any European league on their sky sports 5! Well half of the la align games weren't even covered by them and instead they were covering some non sense! Their excuse was that they don't own the full right to cover all games, fair enough! But then don't lie to people and tell them the opposite!

“Masters Coverage”

written by Jimbo222 on 11/04/2014

No idea why Sky insist on starting their coverage at 7pm, but the vast majority of the hour to "full coverage" at 8pm is just filing it in with chat, historical footage and not much real action Just show the golf itself as a lot of significant shots, drama is missed Poor overall which is a shame for a great occasion

“Golf Coverage”

written by on 17/03/2013

Sarah Stirk's commentary style can only be described as very irratating. Her voice is far too "clipped", with far to much emphasis on parts of her sentences. It is extremely grating! To such an extent we find ourselves 'fast forwarding' sections of the coverage where she is speaking. It is such a shame, as we enjoyed Sky Sports golf coverage for many years. She could be so much better if she spoke with the slower more casual style of Diana Dougherty. Please bring her back. So,so much better, pleasant and interesting to listen to!!

“Discrimination against disabled people by presenters”

written by cheryl.beasley on 25/08/2012

On Friday 17th August 2012 during the break of the Cardiff vs Huddersfield the presenters were going over parts of the match, when on of the presenters said 'that was a spaz move'. I found this comment very offensive as I come from a disabled family and that word if very hurtful and has brought up painful memories from bullying in the past. I was disgusted to hear such a word being casually used, it has deeply offened me and my family If you wish to contact me on this issue then please feel free to email me at [email protected]
