DQ Brandel Chamblee from the Golf Channel - Page 6

post #91 of 236

I went to change.org and created a petition to have Mike McCarley, president of Golf Channel, remove Brandel Shamblee as a commentator. You are welcome to sign it or create your own for others to sign. I hope we can get 3-4 million people to agree with this effort.

You're an idiot.

Interesting idea. I shall visit the site.

 

However, I am very amused at the efforts of the GC commentators, as they try to sound even handed about the players and today's final round.

Especially BC. He is rather low key and very soft spoken in his comments. A changed person?  Time will tell. But then again, I say every commentator that called for Tiger to withdraw "for the good of the game" were wrong and need to be called out for it. I guess in adversity, you really see WHO your friends are!

And have change.org email me seven dozen times a day again? No thank you.

They really, really, really, really, really, really, really want you to change, Jamo.

I'm glad Tiger decided to play on. Many of us have learned to embrace the ruling in the last day or so. Even Brandel.

Right - from the committee's perspective at the time he signed, it was a correct score - it wasn't until later that it became an incorrect score

 

But from Tiger's perspective, who had more accurate and full knowledge than the committee with respect to whether the drop was legal or not, it was an incorrect score at the time he signed.

 

So it all depends on whose perspective takes precedence when trying to determine whether the rules call for a DQ. I don't know if there's a right answer, but I believe the player's perspective should take precedence, because of my bolded text above. I believe the committee's mistake in ruling it legal among themselves is irrelevant since they never actually told Tiger they had done so. Only that should've exonerated him from a DQ, IMO.

 

But because there's no precedence for this situation and no cut-and-dried rule/decision that addresses it, I also believe the committee acted within their power to invoke rule 33-7 and waive the DQ based on what they deemed was an exceptional individual case.

Na, keep BC! Love his honesty, and he calls it like it is!! Even Sir Nick said he should have DQ himself! I agree!

The Grassy knoll!  Where was Lee Harvey?  With Brandel?

You have no way of knowing this, considering that maybe 15%, TOPS, of Jack's shots were telecast, far fewer were replayed, and no other replays were available to the general viewing public.  As compared to virtually 100% of Tigers shots being shown and replayed, and available for viewer replay through DVR recordings, and Internet videos.

But then Nick found out the facts and changed his opinion.  Something that mature people do.  And something that the likes of Brandel and Feinstein will never do because of their pre-existing biases.

 

 

Interesting take, but not conclusive and too late, in any case.

Do you believe that if is was any other golfer in the field the committee would have made the same decision?  Somehow I think it had more to do with ratings than with golf.  It was the first time in my memory that someone has signed an incorrect score card and not received a DQ penalty.  I just don't see how this situation was different to warrant a lesser penalty.

To answer your first question, yes.

 

The Masters couldn't care less about "ratings." Prove otherwise.

 

This situation was different, and why has been explained many, many times already.

Agreed that this Brandel character made an ass out of himself before the facts were out concerning Tiger's foul.  $200 suit, $300 hair cut trying for the pit boss look, his self righteous pontificating became nauseating real fast.

The more of you who sign up to post, or sign a petition, the more secure Brandel's job.

post #107 of 236

Chamblee is an idiot.  I can't stand hearing him talk.  Mr. Knowitall.  but im sure he gets people talking.  that's what he gets paid to do.  rating don't raise themselves.

Given the history of the Masters tournament and the club at  Augusta as the above poster agrees the Augusta club does care about media concerns and or impacts as has been reflected in there reluctance to allow woman to be club members until just recently. One thing that is clear to me is that there is hard core TW haters that for whatever reason  they are hell bent ontarnishing his image. My son now 25 years old is one heck of a good golfer. Hits the ball a country mile and I am sure it was TW who inspired him to play golf. I was a hockey and tennis player but when my son asked if he could try playing golf some 12 years ago I supported and in fact decided to try it myself. Best thing that ever happened to both me and my son. Make no mistake about it TW has done more to promoting golf than anyone. These pompous pros who want him to DQ himself should remind themselves if not for TW the winning purses would more like the Tennis winning purses.
