Caught that and thought it was canny . Foster seems a really down to earth fella.

I do think Cram's a pretty poor commentator mind, he's no replacement for Brendan.

He won Olympic silver in the 1,500m behind Coe in LA, 1984. Foster won a bronze in 1976 in Montreal.

He won two European golds, Foster won one.

He won the 1983 world championship 1,500m in Helsinki, but this was the first world championships and Foster had obviously retired.

Two great athletes from our region and both great, knowledgeable commentators, have been deemed good enough to head up the BBC's commentary for many a year.

Shouldn't let petty, blinkered local rivalries detract from that.

He is a shit commentator though, thought Michael Johnson was going to chin him the other night, Cram was shitting himself. You only had to listen to Fosters analysis of the 1500 last night to know he'll be sorely missed, Cram's no replacement.

Whether people think he's shit or not is subjective, and Michael Johnson isn't automatically correct just because of what he achieved on the track. People like Gatlin will always divide opinion and cause strong debate.

No one will be an adequate replacement for Foster, he's an institution in the athletic commentary world, but that doesn't make Cram shit. A bit like saying all BBC presenters are shit because none are as good as Terry Wogan.

It makes Cram shit if he's not observant or can't read a race, he didn't even see Gatlin winning the 100 the other night he was so focused on Bolt and Coleman, now that's nothing to do with Foster being better, its about him being poor.

I would imagine it's pretty difficult to capture every aspect of a race that lasts less than 10 seconds. Coleman was the clear early leader with the undoubted star of the show in the lane next to him. Gatlin was a couple of lanes away and came through late but he called it on the line.

Okay, but he's paid well to describe it and all I'm saying is he's not very good, yes he's a mackem, but he's simply not very good, 'pretty difficult' is a poor excuse, it's his job. Have a listen the next few nights and see what you think, he also thinks he's funny, he's not.

Thanks for the stats neppos i wasnt sure if he won a gold at the olympics. I am basing my opinion on how he was when i met him although the fact that he is a mackem tramp kay have coloured that somewhat. He may have been a decent runner but for me he is a shit commentator and a cunt.

He may well be a cunt, I have never met him. It wouldn't massively surprise me if he was though, two family members of mine were sat on a table at an awards do with Freddie Flintoff and Jamie and Louise Redknapp and said all three were complete ignorant wankers. But another famous female celebrity (forget who), was great, spoke and took an interest in the 'ordinary' people at the table.

I think Cram is quite good at what he does and I think he has the hardest job, he calls all the shorter races live, on his own, the others don't usually say anything until the analysis afterwards when they have had a few seconds to take things in and make their own observations. Foster will speak live maybe from the events 1,500 upwards.

Just a thought and just an opinion.

I'm not being funny like but the 100m is the last event you need to hear commentary on....there's 10 minutes build up where you find out everything you need to know and then 10 seconds of watching the fastest blokes on earth do their thing
