    EBI should also have a theme song, kind of like NFL on Fox e.g. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MbU4fPYRvcY). Have Smoke Serpent make the most recognizable music theme in BJJ history.

    This will probably happen once EBI gets televised.

There were a few times where I was kind of embarrassed for them, and other times when I thought they were great.. funny, insightful, smart. It was kinda mixed for me.

    It was like purple belt level commentary.
    Just about to watch it. I'm just going by what I know about the dudes. They're both OG bomb squad. I'll check for fucks tho I'll prolly remain silent. (I've fucked up once before...sssshhhhh) :-)

As they set up for the overtime (like 5-10seconds) it would be nice for something to be said like, "neither of these competitors will be getting the submission money for this round, but they are going to overtime to see who moves on".
    I love that idea. If you wanna make it like a TV show and we are trying to engage the audience, then this is a HUGE point. Really good idea.

    Also, let's see a running clock on the overtime. That way we know how quickly the second player has to submit/escape. Basically like having a scoreboard on screen.

    I think the main criticisms for the show were all for TJ De Santis (I think that was his name), not for Scott and Erik.

    Guy announcing fighters was saying Renzo with hard R instead of H. Pretty good commentating by Compella, Ross and TJ.

    Tj, if that was his name, was pretty cringe. Commentators should be knowledgable and passionate about the sport and the athletes. He was neither. "Josh Hinger, a virtually unknown, coming out of nowhere." Really dude.?.

    ^^^Yes. Eric & Scott were fine, TJ was embarrassing. Especially when he kept telling Hinger to his face "nobody expected you to be here in the finals..." He just came across like somebody who knows nothing about JiuJitsu.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    I remember for EBI 2 the same announcer botched Renzo Gracie a bunch of times, most notably "Renzo Garcia" with an R.

    I see where the confusion was. Announcers don't have to know shit. They just must have a good voice & be able to legibly read what's on the cards given. Which he may have messed up, whoever wrote the cards my have been mistaken. Who cares! I was under misunderstanding Scott,&Erik were the ones in question. Which I was correct. When it comes to jiu jitsu knowledge traditional or 10p. They says the right stuffs.
