Just was.

Freakin anti Semite announcer. Every one else he said their name and country, by AJ he just said his name and some of his sporting background.
Why jump to that?
I'll tell you later

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

He simply didn't know whether to call it Israel or Palestine?

Maybe he has a different sporting background, maybe it was a compliment, I hate when people jump to antisemitism, it makes light of real cases

I'm not saying it wasn't a compliment but how does that change my point?
All the athletes before AJ he mentioned what country they're representing plus whatever other info he gave about them, it just seemed odd to me that suddenly when it came to Israel he didn't mention it. Especially considering that you would think that just the fact that there's even an Israeli "team" should be newsworthy in of itself... Although in his defense he did mention that he didn't stick with bobsled because he couldn't find any Israeli teammates...

The funny thing I'm usually the last one to jump to antisemitism

I thought the background info that he gave was really nice. He was explaining that even though hes new to skeleton he is a great athlete. Something that might be uncommon in the sport.

Not the great athlete part but the varied background

I thought the announcer was fine and he definitely gave AJ some TV time, he even circled back at the end when he talked about the standings and mentioned Israel and AJ's story.
