  1. @Armchair Analyst. there use 2 series. kellogs and uncle tobys. 9 use to do a great job with the kellogs series than 7 took over and things went pear shaped. it wasn’t 7 that ruined it. the sports lost a lot fans through them not being interested in it any more. nicole was apart of 9s coverage for many years with big darryl eastlake

    I rather enjoy this sport. Back in the 90s TEN was excellent at this. Since its shifted from 10 to 9 to 7 it had been ordinary most likely because of the broadcasters treatment of it. So great to see it finally come home to TEN/ONE HD. One thing i don’t understand how on earth is Nicole Livingston and Libby Tricket on the commentary team. I know they are swimmers and that is fair enough but that’s all they are unless i am missing something. Couldn’t have TEN employed a former iron woman competitor that would have made more sense, but it is a good team i must say that. ps love the ONE HD promo for the Kellogg’s Nutri Grain Iron Man series best ever.
