I thought I would go a long way before I found a more insipid, vapid moron than Michael Clarke, I stand corrected. How Andrew Symonds ever got a job astounds me, the bloke has the personality of a dead tree stump. In fact people do drawings and paintings of dead tree stumps so they serve a purpose, Symonds is more a plank.

There are commentators and "colour" men.
I don't mind Symonds as the "colour" guy, I really only listen to Punter.

Australian TV (UK is not quite as bad, but getting there) suffers from the syndrome that says if you didn't play the game at the top level, you aren't allowed to talk about it. They seem to think more people will listen/watch if they have a star on the team.
Most of the best commentators of the past 50 years never played test cricket, some of them didn't even play first class cricket. They just know how the game is played and how to talk about it. I don't mind having an ex-player on hand as the guy with the technical knowledge or insight. But I prefer someone who can actually talk and knows how to "keep an audience" to tell me about the game and what's happening.
