So I'm watching the first half of the World Cup final and it's a great game but the direction of German TV really bothered me at times.
Not just in the final but this whole World Cup seems to have been directed by a bunch of morons.
First we have some idiots who seem to find the super slo-mo arousing, especially when it shows a manager screaming in super slo-mo on the touchline. Yeah, looks real charming!
Then there's showing the managers when they really should be showing a replay of an important chance.
Not only do they show the managers at the wrong moment, they also keep the camera focused on them for about 15 seconds!
Then there's showing the crowd at the wrong moments. Show the crowd when the ball is out of play but not when a team is attacking the goal.
Then there's the showing of self-obsessed FIFA/Goverment pricks who contribute absolutely nothing to football. Not in a million years do they deserve camera time.
Another annoyance was in the France vs Portugal game when they showed (ex-France manager) Aimee Jaquet more than they showed Domenech.
Then there's also the use of replays for useless situations. Did anyone notice the super slo-mo replay of a physio squirting water onto Perotta's injured foot. Classic TV directing right there!
I love the super slo-mo replays but use them wiseley. I mean, this World Cup has been brilliont but the TV directing has been absolutely crap. A bunch of blind, demented monkeys could direct a football match better than the bunch of German TV idiots.
i was pissed at the fact that they were slow as hell with replays in some games. like ball is out of play for 10 secs, something big happened before that, no replay. then they squeeze it in in the middle of a play.
