I wasn't actually comparing Moore to Hitler, what I was doing was illustrating that speaking your mind doesn't necessarily equal colourful and entertaining and an extreme example was the only thing I thought would work after you seemingly ignored my more subtle attempts to make the same point in previous posts - the same goes with my exagerations of Moore (though I think it works in contrast to your own assertions that essentially anyone not like Moore is bland and dull).<div class='quotemain'>
<div class='quotemain'> Comparing Brian Moore to "Hitler" doesn't exactly help your argument really to be honest. Also, exaggerating what Moore complains about doesn't really help.
I dont think exaggerating about what Moore does in a game and ignoring what I defined as bland and pc counts as 'subtle' I'm afraid. Colourful as it was, it doesnt make any sense to include a dictator as an argument against Moore, only then to claim that you were not comparing Moore with him despite the fact that such a comparison is all but inevitable in the route you have chosen.
Seriously, it's like the 10th time I posted on this topic and each time you said I wanted dull so I thought "f#ck it I'll just make it bloody obvious". And hey, you stopped suggesting Moore was the sole representative of opinion and personality in commentary so I guess it kinda worked .
From the sounds of it that's more a reflection of pretty bad NH commentary across the board... and even then it's fairly even. Haven't heard many SH boys cheering for Moore.Well, by the same token, a heck of a lot of other people like him it would appear and enjoy his brand of punditry!
How would you know? you don't even know who I'm talking about from the sounds of your responses. On the other hand I know full well who you are talking about.The truth is more in line with along the lines of what Mite said. However, I am satisfied that on what you have said you wanted in a pundit, I found frankly dull. Didnt find everyone else's suggestions dull, just the one person who seems most stung by some admittedly harsh remarks.
Arguments, sure. But great arguments? We've spent pages basically arguing over whether or not this guy has any place in a commentary box... a great argument would have been one about the state of the game.In any case, the fact that everyone is talking about Brian Moore proves my point that he starts great arguments! :lol:
But hey, I guess starting arguments is something... which I guess kind of makes Moore the Bill O'Reilly of Rugby - he may not have a single useful thing to say, but he sure as **** knows how to **** people off.
