He probably is a nice and genuine guy, I find his presenting irritating. I have never met him so can't comment on his character. But then I did like Nick Halling so who am I to judge !

People who whine about Neil Reynolds

He isn't Carlson, he isn't supposed to be Carlson

I can understand a newbie maybe getting annoyed by the lack of analysis from Sky when Jeff isn't there, but for most of the people who moan on here, what analysis do you need??

1. You have been watching the game so 99% of analysis is just rehashing stuff you already noticed.
2. The US broadcast team gives you analysis during the game.

There are people dying in the world every day and yet people on here act like watching Reynolds is ruining their life!

REALITY CHECK People!!

While I'm not a huge fan of Neil, this is the whole point. He's there to provide the odd soundbite and explain things in a pretty basic way to people who have limited knowledge of the NFL. I don't find him particularly engaging or comfortable to listen to on the odd occasion I watch Sky's coverage, but he's not there for me. I do think Sky need a Carlson/Reinebold-type guy alongside him though, so maybe the slap needs to be reserved for the programme editor who puts Martin and Cadle alongside Reynolds!

Cannot argue with that.

I think Cecil Martin needs to go and be replaced by someone more knowledgeable and less like an excitable child who speaks before engaging brain. Rocky Boiman anyone?

In-between plays with a studio of Cadle, Jeff and Neil, I change the channel for a few minutes. I don't when Cecil is on.

Thus proving you are one of a kind. (Cecil is the worst)

Dull and creepy?! Dull maybe, but how is he creepy?

None of them are needed, just use the US feed and be done with it, that would end all this nonsense every year.

Very true, still stands though, that you and others are moaning about something that should if you are past 12, have no affect on your viewing pleasure.

If it is really that bad, you know what the Mute button is for don't you?!
