I did not see it in that clip...............why did they put Lalas resume up? They don't have to, but if they are catering for US audience, then it may make greater sense to keep Ballacks resume at the forefront, showing him as not just another foreigner who can't speak english and plays soccer.  ???

Elan... they usually put up the resumes of every analyst in the studio, especially the ones whom American viewers would be less familiar with.  The fact that you didn't see it in that clip is hardly cause for comment in my mind.  You make it seem as though ESPN realized Lalas was getting beat down and therefore attempted to shore him up a little by posting his accomplishments.  Really dude? lol.

Anyways, out of sheer laziness I does turn to ESPN by default for the games... that being the case I've seen Ballack resume shown on more than one occasion.

Yuh notice they put up Lalas Resume, like that suppose to convince yuh on the shyte he talking. Why did they not put up Ballack Resume? They would have had to cut away from studio and run a highlight reel.

They need to put up Ballack resume every time they show him on-screen?

Not disagreeing with what yuh saying but I think they will put up his more so as to try and garner respect for his opinion (not specifically based on situations like this per se).  To the average american who is now getting into soccer, it might be important to see an american and see his resume to feel like there is someone of sizeable stature in the sport rendering an opinion.  It might be more a play on pride than anything else to grab the newbies and that's why they likely might show Lalas resume more often than Ballack (not saying that they actually do because I eh been watching post game nor half time analysis just some food for thought).

That's why I said I did not see it, and was curious if what Bakes said is actually what they were doing. Hey can't put anything past these guys, Lalas is on giving everyone their opinion.

Russia is the superior team. Poland: not much of a transition game, but they have had bona fide opportunities to frustrate Russian ambitions. Ah like Obraniak. @ 1-1 the Poles have heightened the interest/suspense in this game.

All these ESPN former american soccer players does remind me of  bill O'riley on fox news network.

harks, wonalda , bill lee, julie foudy, and now this waste of ah fack, lal-ass! all ah dem real bulley-ish, super opinionated and dismissive! in other words, crude and rude!

Thirdly, they have to have a personality that is palatable to an american audience, i.e. wild and excitable...

But is just that ESPN catering to an audience. Just thank yuh lucky stars them men ent commentating the whole actual games.


....and no sooner yuh say dat, look who dey bring een today, none other than the ultra wild and excitable max bretos.  Lawd have mercy!!

Czechs real weak dis rongs - if they get through they do real good... Especially as yuh see they lose Rosicky half way through this last game, and they kinda fall apart after that... Wouldn't be surprised if Poland deal with them good and proper.

They need to put up Ballack resume every time they show him on-screen?

----------------------------------------------------

Aside from that, saying that ESPN looking for "wild and exciteable" analysts is as nonsensical as calling Barkley and Kenny Smith "wild and exciteable".  Barkley is in the TNT studio because he's funny and to an extent unpredictable.  He's a great quote machine and has always been throughout his career.  He's no different from Ray Hudson in that regard so to draw up some dichotomy of approach between supposedly "American tastes" and "our" footballing tastes on that point is simply dishonest.

ESPN appears to go after former US players who are "accomplished" and who have personality.  In that regard Lalas fits the bill in his own limited way, perhaps moreso than any other US player current or retired.  The problem with the ESPN approach is that they seem to be treating him (or allowing him to see himself) as some kinda expert, which he isn't.  His resume pales in comparison to most of the other guests they employ (except he lacks the humility to recognize this... or otherwise thinks it insignificant), yet he opines in such a manner as to suggest that he is their equal or better.

All that said, I didn't think the exchange was as significant as men was making it out to be.

-----------------------------------------------

All this talk, and the respective scorelines aside... we are seeing some real quality football at this tournament.  Selassie was good in the first game for the Czech Republic... but he was brilliant tonight.  Same for Jiracek or whatever the first goal scorer name is.  For Greece, Samaras leave everything on the pitch tonight.

Lalas persona as a player was very light-hearted... almost hippyish even his appearance, with his long hair, beard, guitar playing and singing etc..

Ever since he crossed over to a front office position in the MLS, and now in front the camera in a serious capacity, I find his vibe to be difficult to stomach.  He's not a pleasant on-screen personality at all.  There are ways to disagree with your co-host and still be cool...The guy coming off as someone who takes himself too seriously...which is a complete 180 to his image as a player to my recollection. 

But I agree with you - not significant. I found it abit awkward though - they brought more attention to themselves than I imagine was intended by the producers of the post-game show... Anyways.....
