Intriguing why some of the presenters persist in this ridiculous looking left [to match the sports reader looking right] farce on their overnight sports bulletin introductions – to deceptively convey that the colleague is actually seated alongside.

The worst of the respective perpetrators seem to be Ms Errington and the nauseating Nick “Grinning” Powell.

Ha Ha was wondering when someone would mention this, was going to do it myself. It’s very stupid looking alright. AnJali Rao don’t do it though she just smiles when introducing the sports section, what a babe!
I emailed Sky News about this practice a few years ago, saying what an insult to our intelligence this all was. They didn’t reply, but seemed to cease the practice for a while. It looks as though they are at it again.

Rob Curling being the recent prime culprit.
Although he’s worked on Sport’s coverage with several other channels, he always seems to have little enthusiasm, or knowledge, of sporting matters in general.
