    The British Eurosport guys always talk about how excited some of the commentary teams are around them, particularly when their skaters are competing. I would think you need to be in the arena so you capture that feel of the audience and relay that to those watching the broadcast.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    Hmm, I actually did notice while watching some Brit Eurosport clips that there was some pretty loud conversations getting picked up on the feed during the middle of a skate. Thought it likely was another broadcast team, and not super loud fans?

    In some instances, the program is specifically choreographed with that in mind, like Debi Thomas in 1988. There was a clear transition before her 3rd piece of music when she was face-to-face with McGowan, about 6 feet apart. He would slam on the boards and yell at her to get her going for the home stretch.

    Good question. I've always wondered about this.
