Condescending comments from commentators of figure staking
I want to bring to your attention the constant inadequacy of the comments made by Sale and Pelletier on the pair skaters and so far men's single skating. Pelletier is biaised, condescenting, jealous and his comments are innapropriate. He obviously does not have it to be a commentator. Skaters choices of outfits should not be constantly put down by Pelletier who seems to have quite the big inflated macho head. As for his wife who keeps repeating: "Good Girl" when the women make the jumps, that comment should also be banned. The young women are women not girls and should be respectfully referred to as WOMEN not GIRLS.
Obviously, Sale and Pelletier were the worst choice for commenting and they do not have the training the skills or the vocabulary to carry such responsibility. Too bad they'll still be making big money to do something the are inept at doing.
Anielle BelAnge from Victoria British Colombia PS: I have to mute the sound when they are commenting as they annoy me tremendously.
