Just a short blog today. More of a rant.

Was watching the Sky's coverage of the Scottish Masters and, even more so than usual, I just couldn't stop wondering how Jim White has had such a long career on television.

His presentation style is so amateur and his attempts at being witty are just cringeworthy.

He was bad enough on Scotsport all those years ago. Then he inexplicably landed a role at Sky.

Why? Why? Why?

Wikipedia have this brilliant summarisation of his talents:

"White is distinguished by his slavish but often clumsy following of the auto cue, often losing all sense of what he is supposed to be presenting."

Is he thought to be the best sports presenter Scotland has to offer?
