General Discussion / Re: Announcers for 2021 Champs Finals

Interesting points of view. I think Arne was looking at it from a broadcast standpoint. Drawing interest in the event from some who are not familiar with NADAC or agility. Knowing this is the time this team needs to beat give an audience anticipation of the can do it. I donít think a good broadcaster would be critical of a handlers choices. I think they would be upbeat and encouraging. People that do broadcasting want to draw people in and make them feel good about what they are watching.

That is what I would envision......

Think about when someone was video-ing you with a Novice level dog ... and providing commentary where that person thought you should have run a little differently.  Especially when they are right!  Watching this once or twice with that commentary is sort of OK.  After that I would just rather not hear those comments again.  Hmmm.  Might have to go edit that video and take the sound down at times <evei grin>!

Yah play by play given in the arena where the competitors could hear was not my vision. That certainly could be distracting to some.  My question was more specifically adding a sports caster to the live stream of the finals run. As David said, I would not envision that broadcast to be going out on the arena speakers.  But anyone in the stands could be listening to it with headphones from their phone or computer.  Friends, family and any other live stream audience watching from home would also hear it.  I think the excitement generated by the sports caster would draw in some of that home audience to the sport of agility and more specifically NADAC.

David had a good second point that some would not want to hear the sports caster on their purchased run that they watch over and over. I am not sure the sports caster voice would need to end up on the videos sold to the participants.

I can't think of a sport where the arena/stadium/court/rink announcer and broadcast announcer are the same person(s).  Two different types of things going on there. 

Most importantly, given how many people purchase their runs and watch them again & again over the years, is it worth the possibility of ruining that enjoyment by having a "Colour Commentator" pointing out their failures or second guessing their handling strategies (Sometimes you get enough of that leaving the ring LOL). Just a thought.

Linda, someone asked Chris on the other forum and he recommended a company in TN:

I have an e-mail in to them.

They aren't cheap by any means.   But the quality is really good, and they're the farthest 'east' that I know of.

As someone who has run in finals and was super nervous I think having someone critiquing my run as I am doing it would be an unwelcome distraction.  What the announcers currently say is "authored" by the handler running so it's not really disruptive.  I believe that the sportscasters in AKC are heard by the television audience only.  I could be wrong, but these are my thoughts.
Lord, you would hope so!!!!  If I were running my dog and he screamed at a problem point or mistake like the other night,  I would NOT be happy!!!!!  LOL!!!!!!!

Sam and Scott did a wonderful job announcing at the last Champs!  I agree, I would not like someone critiquing my performance during finals if my dog and I are lucky enough to make finals.
