Never asks the hard questions he’s a BHA cheerleader.
Good for him, his performance today was very child like, the condescending tone towards BHA fans which I’m guessing is his target audience is pitiful.That's not his job; it's not what he's been asked to do.
But as you don't subscribe to the Athletic, you won't know that, and so are not in a position to comment.
For the most part through this thread, the negative comments have clearly come from people who have no idea what his remit is; what he has been asked to do. Meanwhile, back in the real world, he is doing what his bosses are asking of him, and writing plenty of good copy, featuring some excellent prose. And featuring analysis not featured elsewhere - another example of those who don't read his work being the first to comment in their own echo chamber.
I don't give a toss if he comes across as aloof or distant. That's their problem those who do.
What a pity The Clown Of Pevensey Bay felt he had to write what he did, as it's such an obvious state of affairs that he highlights, it's embarrassing that it needed saying in the first place.
