You'd expect gross mis-pronunciations from ch7, ch9 or ch 10, but SBS
people? Aren't they supposed to be multi-cultural, as long as you're
Italian and play soccer?

The "guy" is Mathew Keenan, a very experienced knowledgable commentator at many a Vic cycling event and usually a podium commentator at the Bay Crits etc, and was on SEN1116 Sports Radio too and BUT with all his creds, he still cant pronounce a "lara" over a "rella",
If someone can get Matt's ear before he embarasses himself any more and puts paid forever to his aspirations of taking over from Phil Liggett ( maybe not!!), then please ask him to take some care on what he is pronouncing over what he is reading.

Cancellara isnt the only name he gets wrong, but its über annoying to hear it consistently even after he has heard Sherwin, Liggett, Tomalaris and McKenzie all do the Lara with ease and not a "rella" in earshot from any of them...

Matt don't be lazy, or do you know something about the pronnuciation of names that we don't? or is this your "strine" version? and tough !!?... maybe its Sui-talian a new Orstraylyun dialect, hopefully not as I'm sure its not Nino Culotta's.

Noticed this morning he got it right, but still seemed to be having
trouble wrapping his tongue around it.
