Whats tin pot about this?

What am I missing?

You don’t see what’s tin-pot about delivering some wholly uninspiring, cliche-ridden speech about where you’ve came from etc, recording it specifically for social media, adding foreign subtitles to it before going on to suffer a humiliating defeat that knocks you out of the competition?

It doesn’t strictly speaking belong here but in the absence of a long run “Bathetic Hubris Thread” it may as well sit here

Scraping past a team with a much smaller budget than yours and still being raging about them is probably the closest thing to tinpot that's happening here, but that sums up those two horrible little clubs weekly.

I've mentioned this before and people have had a go at me for it , so I'd expect similar this time, but see when we beat Lichtenstein at home with a ridiculously late winner under Levein, I couldn't get remotely excited.  I actually felt a wee bit embarrassed.

I didn’t think you done excitement anyway MT 

I imagine yourself to be a Rev I.M Jolly character

I find BBC, Sky, BT et al’s desperate attempts to be seen as politically correct, by employing 50% female commentators and analysts on all male sports tinpot. Far from empowering women, it comes across as patronising and a huge turn off. I know that I will be accused of masogyny, but I personally cringe when listening to some of these so called experts and commentators ruining football, golf, cricket etc for the sake of equality

Years ago at Livingston. They had a corner and over the tannoy, they play some kind of cavelry horn as some sort of hideous attempt to jee up some atmosphere.

I guess it's a tinpot thing I've heard rather than seen, but still.

Hibs putting out their Stats statement today after being miffed at the criticism they've been getting over their late equaliser.

a sports data business with a talented team that is tireless in its collection and analysis of the world's most comprehensive sports data.

If incompetent pundits and commentators were to be ruled out due to their sex, no bloke would ever be allowed to pick up a microphone again.

Not sure this is true but if the choice of criteria is between having a balance of male/female and ‘having ever kicked a ball for the OF so they’ll do’ then I know what I’d choose.

I think the whole male/female thing with punditry has a lot to do with the sport itself and how familiar or otherwise we are with females in the role.

In sports where there's greater parity of esteem between the sexes, like tennis or athletics, we barely notice who's commentating in such terms.  In football though, it's still a bit novel, and for some apparently, jarring.
