I like to watch soccer a lot. Sports reporters describe players' actions very well and make you feel excited when you watch the game on TV.

(ex) The way sports reporters describe players' actions is dynamic, rumbling, and vivid.


I think these adjectives are not correct. Please help me. Thanks a lot.

Are these adjectives referring to reporters' commentary or players' actions?


In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

robjen -

Not sure how "rumbling" got in there - it's the odd one out.

However, both vivid and dynamic would fit, if it's the way sportscasters report that you are describing.

Color commentator



A color commentator or expert commentator is a sports commentator who assists the main commentator, often by filling in any time when play is not in progress.

The phrase "color commentator" is primarily used in American English; the concept may also be referred to as a summariser (outside North America) or analyst (a term used throughout the English-speaking world).[1][2] The color analyst and main commentator will often exchange comments freely throughout the broadcast, when the play-by-play announcer is not describing the action.[3]

The color commentator provides expert analysis and background information, such as statistics, strategy, and injury reports on the teams and athletes, and occasionally anecdotes or light humor. Color commentators are often former athletes or coaches of the sport being broadcast.[4]
