    Yeah I wouldn't mind hearing KJ call a game too. I think it's Wileman who always says the Canadian international every touch of the ball..gets a bit much.

    Normal commentator "What a goal by Smith! And he scored twice here this time last year against Toronto FC."

    Wileman: "And a wonderful finish by Smith. The USA international scored two times here this time last year, on July 21, in temperatures of 30+ but with some southeast breeze.
    That 1 p.m. kickoff I recall you showing up late for that one, Steve. Talk about your playing days, Steve! You would have not allowed the USA international such freedom!"

    etc. etc. drink. mute.

    Yeah. Kristian Jack should have a bigger part in the broadcast.

    How long does a guy have to live in Toronto to be local? He moved here in 2006!

    His accent is certainly not fake. I've spoken with him many times so believe me, he is not pushing the accent and by the way, there is no such thing as a "British" accent. There are dozens of accents on the British Isles.

    For the sake of posterity, I listened to Roy Hudson calling Inter Miami FC goals "magisterial" & "of the highest quality" & just shook my head

    **

    By and large, MLS commentators can be summed up in this tweet in response to a beyond obvious hand ball

    Roy Hudson’s entire career was built on bombastic and hyperbolic language, using every synonym available to describe Messi’s brilliance in La Liga. You can’t fault him for his unique style, and at least he doesn’t use crutch words. In fact, I’m convinced he reads the thesaurus before every match as his prep and for vocal warmup.

    MLS has done a great job of getting commentators doing their own matches repping one team and City, though. Watching highlights now I don't even have to make out the teams playing to hear where it's being played. I may have my preferences but for 4mins it's pretty entertaining to hear the different styles.

    I'm pretty sure no one likes everything their commentators say or do but I'm at the stage where this is just a chapter. I'll take it as such.

    Remember Nigel Reed? Who else called TFC matches through the years? Which of them did we all love all the time?
