The Passion of Calcio: Commentary with Bias


Video courtesy of YouTube.

Please watch this short video. It was stadium commentary from last year during the Milan derby (Internazionale x AC Milan).
To quote Michael Wilbon, "They don't get it because they don't want to get it."
Last summer, during the ESPN broadcast of DC United x LA Galaxy, he made that comment about mainstream journalists and their indifference to soccer.

I recall an interview that I did almost two years ago with Andres Cantor. He didn't apologize for his allegiance to club (Boca Juniors) and country (Argentina). He is one of the best commentators in world football.

Much could be learned from the passionate commentaries on this video. One might challenge their objectivity; however, you can't debate their passion.

Thank you to Lion In Oil for reporting on this video.
