Martin Tasker trends on twitter for all the wrong reasons

What a frustrating morning of America’s Cup races.  To add insult to injury, TVNZ’s commentary team has been lambasted on Twitter for their negativity, particularly Martin Tasker.

Do what I and many others are now doing, listening to Peter Montgomery’s commentary on Radio Sport/Newstalk ZB while watching the TVNZ images.

    Had to press the mute button this morning. Not only was Martin Tasker’s ‘commentary’ utterly dire, it was totally unprofessional. Watch the America’s Cup YouTube channel for insightful and unbiased comments.

    Tasker really is depressing – a while ago we were leading 5-0 and got behind and it was almost like he was representing NZ as a country with an inferior complex. He also seems to be reading from a cliché and nautical manual. Why isn’t someone like Chris Dickson doing the commentary with Lester? Yesterday was an embarrassment – an important item such as the time limit was not mentioned until well into the race and then not confirmed by the pair until near the end.
