Former football players and referees who are turned into commentators are not necessarily journalists. But when given the opportunity to speak into the microphone, they must assume a basic responsibility of the press, a commitment to the facts.
It is not acceptable that they misinform, that they distort reality. And this should extend to social networks, as people follow these characters based on their appearances in the media. And we are dealing with something serious.
When a referee commentator does not watch a football match because he is working on broadcasting another, he should not analyze plays from the game he did not watch. Even more out of context.
This type of attitude generates dirty engagement, because if someone insinuates that the “Xis” team has benefited, the fans of the others will tend to agree. And share.
A great irresponsibility. Worthy of a straight red card. Especially for those who are so incapable that they daily make the space they occupy more absurd, incomprehensible. And there is no VAR for these people.
