BBC's partial Olympics commentary irks

A big boo to the BBC!!!
I am absolutely furious about the BBC's Olympics commentary!!! While Roger Mosey, the BBC's director of London 2012, promised an impartial and independent coverage of the London Olympics, the fact is otherwise, especially in team/individual events involving the home team of Great Britain. Commentators are hysterical and screaming in joy when team GB is winning, it is irritatingly comical to see them jumping out of their seats during crunch matches and most of all speak condescendingly of losing players from other teams.

Agreed that the Britons are proud of hosting the Olympics, but that does not give the public broadcasting services' news presenters and commentators to be jingoistic and lose track of a fair and impartial way of covering events. Imagine Harsha Boghle and our own cricket commentators screaming hysterically in joy when India is hosting the Cricket world cup and the host country is winning against the English or the Australians!
