Also, can we talk about the fact that he announces the distance races with absolutely no energy? He sounds bored out of his mind, and it ruined some pretty dramatic moments. Half the reason Solinsky's 10k record is such a great watch is because of the commentary from the flotrack guys.
Stones is so bad at this, it's like he's actively trying to diminish the viewing experience. He gets randomly fixated on some runner back in 5th, while someone else is powering away to a national title in the last 50 meters. After all these years he still announces like he never heard of anyone if the field until 5min before the race, and has zero feel for how the race will unfold. I'm sure the support around his broadcast isn't great, but there's no hiding how terrible he is. Such a stunning mix of laziness and incompetence.
