    Default Hunter Derby Finals - National Anthem

    I just watched the replay of the first round of the Hunter Derby Finals. Was anyone else offended that the commentators were talking thru the National Anthem. I found it disrespectful.

    Just realized I didn't hear it as I watched it online. Maybe that is why.......

    That is pretty disrespectful. Anthem was good but something happened with and she didn't start singing at the beginning- either no music n her ear or she forgot the words I suppose. Was odd but good.

    The commentators were pretty awful, we had to mute it to watch. Didn't realize they yapped thru the anthem, not cool.
