      Lets get Adam Bobrow to Rio!

      What's going on with the commentary in Rio? Where's the main man Adam Bobrow? I just watched a video on Facebook of Adam being at home commentating in front of his mum which is really funny but seriously he should be at the Olympics!

      Isn't this best for the sport having Adam Bobrow, who has in depth knowledge and genuine excitement for the sport? That's what I want!



      Do you agree?

      Sure, but how you think we could get him there?
      This is not an ITTF event, is it?

      Sure, Adam could be a commentator there if:
      1) he pays a huge advertising fee
      2) he brings in his own camera team and equipment

      /sarcasm. NBC Olympics has had 85% advertisement and 15% coverage of the events. Sad, but NBC is turning me off.

      Let's find out who Adam Borrow is first......hehe
      seriously watching the early streams I realized how much better table tennis is without commentator. Wish there was an option to turn it off and still hear the game sound. The amount of bullshit that gets spewed during these matches.

      i think many of us even get some of the sports and a bit of each one, and there isnt any highlights or replays at least of the entire matches for anyyyyyyybody to watch them. Damn olympics are the WORST to promote the sport and letting us actually watch what WE want. Adam should totally be there commenting, and nobody should have to sit through 25 minutes of archering when table tennis is going on, wich is an actual important sport that millions of fans care about.

      Youtube channels cant even upload replays or highlights or anything. Really what a disappointment every olympic game

      Adam Babrow is my favorite commentator for ANY sport. He's just so fun and full of energy.

      I think the ITTF are not in control the event. It seems the Olympics are running everything and controlling who does what. I just think Adam should be there, he knows more about the sport than anyone else and brings a lot of excitement which the general public would love.

      One commentator yesterday wasn't even aware the matches are best of 7. Crazy!

      I have him on facebook, I think he tried till the 11th hour to get in somehow but I don't think it worked out ... I loved his interview with Mom video though, I think he should keep doing doing and posting on facebook ...

      Yes, it's a shame Adam is not involved - the Rio atmos would suit his commentary style. A lot of the UK commentators have been bland and just not very good - one made 3 basic mistakes in a single match. He certainly didn't have a tt background.

      The best one is Simon Reed - he's got a cool, relaxed style. I hope he gets the final with a good ex-pro player by his side.

      I think Adam Bobrow is really not suited as a commentator, just too limited knowledge.
      People like Waldner, Saive , Persson etc ... so ex top players would be much better for serious comments.

      Bobrow is the king of commentars in Table Tennis. I love the way he present the game and he is so much in the game and he is the best describer within action. I <3 Bobrow as i love the king of table tennis Ma Long. hehe.

      appreciate he (probably

      I just seen an old vid from 2012 and Richard Prause was commenting.
      Rich got a lot knowledge but just can't bring the excitement across like Adam. Adam brings in a lot of emotion which is totally important as a commentator in my book.
      If you see vids from the nineties or eighties you'll probably understand.

      I would actually say both together Adam plus someone like Richard Prause would probably be the perfect combination.
