Little River Band “Time For Cool Change” from the Wayne Lynch segment of Storm Riders
MATT WARSHAW: “And then Joe Turpel. During a trifling Round Two heat between a couple of backbenchers, Peter Mel, from the channel, reported that he wasn’t sure if Glen Simpson was or was not riding a quad, and Turpel replied “Thanks for the insight, Pete!” at which point a rhesus monkey began flinging itself against the opposing sides of my skull because Mel’s comment was exactly, definitively, almost scientifically the opposite of insightful. Turpel hurts me on a both a professional and personal level.”
I chatted briefly with Matt about his opinions. We agreed, low hanging fruit, easy to chide them; we both discussed how to make it better.
I think they should identify a number one broadcast team: call it Ronnie Blakely and Ross Williams and hold them back from the broadcast until round 5. That we the viewer get fresh insight for the business end of the contest, and from a production standpoint, you can weave in their insights from the early part of the draw with footage from early rounds, this keeps action and input coming at the viewers with a fresh feel.
You’D ID key heats that you want them to cover…
THE WSL should consider Matt’s Beach Grit QnA as a WIN> The fact that we are discussing ways to improve the WSL means we are at the least engaged; we might not be entertained the whoel time, but we are engaged.
