Mick please do some homework, nobody cares about jockeys being good lads, and popular in the weighroom, do some research and bring something to the game

I always remember when he first came on board, John Hunt said he had taken to it
"like a duck takes to water". Sad.
Hunt went right down in my estimation then, and I wonder what he thinks now.

I can't believe he's on again, he is awful, waffling, waffling, waffling. How does he get away with it. If he had something to contribute I wouldn't mind him
He is probably a nice fellow, but I am beginning to hate him.

Perfectly acceptable presenter.
By:

Over a long period Feltfair, that you tend to balance most of the adverse comments made on here against many presenters /pundits.
Whilst this may be admirable, I for one cannot deduce what you actually think of these presenters /pundits.
For example, could you please elaborate on your recent comment on Fitzgerald as being “ a perfectly acceptable presenter “.
What exactly does he bring to the table , that clearly many have trouble in identifying?
Does his insight add to your understanding of a race, or has his command of the betting patterns enlightened you?
Pray give me a small clue.

Hi RothmanMike,

Sorry for the delay in replying but when you posted I was in the middle of watching MASH and after went to bed.

Mick Fitzgerald, where should I start.

Firstly I enjoy listening to anybody who has "been there and done it" and in particular sportsmen because they give you insights into race riding that a spectator like me would not necessarily be aware of. Carson, Dettori, Murtagh for me would be good examples and I include Mick Fitzgerald in that group.

Second during his life he has faced life threatening illness including facing paralysis from his fall from L`Ami in the Grand National which forced him into retirement from being a jockey.No doubt he could have lived off benefits but instead got on with life around horses and was recruited by Attheraces, Channel4 and ITV Racing as a presenter. If someone works hard in an industry that he has immersed himself all his life is on the "gravy train" then good luck to him.

Thirdly he gives of his time being a patron of the Alder Hey Childrens Charity and clearly identifies with very poorly children given his childhood experience.

Fourthly connections seem very happy to be interviewed by him and appear to respect his past experience which may not be applicable to all presenters.

Fifthly any success I have had punting has been by close attention to the clock and Mick has now added this to his analysis, another plus in my book.

Penultimately, if the above is not enough, I have an aversion to what I describe as the "knockers forum". A huge proportion of the posts on the Horse Racing forum are people moaning about jockeys,trainers, presenters,commentators, politicians and anyone else they can have a go at. I prefer postivity as opposed to negativity which descends into trolling certain individuals like Mick Fitzgerald and for me at some point becomes bullying if it is persistent and exclusive to one individual. 

Finally although I have never met him but he comes across as a caring decent person to me.

Sermon over.

I'm sure Mick is a very nice caring guy and always anxious to be seen as such. Nowhere on here has mention been made of reports of when Mick retired he was involved with a tipping agency along the lines of when it wins have £50 on for me, a bit like "Prince 'I Gotta Horse'" but sadly lacking the charisma!
Mick is respectable now, and his mission as presenter is to showcase racing as being whiter than white. He constantly bleats on about how wonderful the young jockey is, how hardworking the stable is, up and coming trainer etc etc.
Mick loves the game, I bet he goes home and watches  reruns of Black Beauty and then Little House on the Prairie - all to a backdrop of Sound of Music!

Mick, cut the Trapp and tell us where the bodies are buried. We know you know!

So in a nutshell, he’s had a bad acciident, he’s kind to children, he’s a very nice man, and you put him in the same league as Dettori, Carson and Murtagh ☹️☹️ - non of which are pundits on a racing show.
And for all this, you think he deserves a living spouting bollocks every week.
Not for me.
