One thing i genuinely dont understand is how in 2017 i can't watch football on the telly with just crowd noise.  It used to be a red button option on sky, but disappeared years ago.

Watching the pre-season friendlies with foreign comms was so much more enjoyable.  No agenda driven bullshit, no stating the fucking obvious, just being able to watch the game and be trusted to make my own judgement on what was going on.

I get in the old days it may have been hard to identify players, but now in super clear HD with squad lists and team sheets available for every game its not exactly hard to equip yourself with the information to work out whos the 22 wearing right back.

I have to mute a lot of games for my insanity**

The weird thing about that is if someone came into my house and saw me watching the telly with the sound off they would think I was insane

** I am aware I may have some psychological issues with Sky/BT commentators like
