I'd always found him (and his voice) a bit OTT, TBH, OMG, WTF, LOL, but I genuinely wondered - and I mean no offence - if senility was setting in later on. At times the stuff he missed, and the things he got wrong, were quite disturbing to witness in a man steeped in decades of racing lore.
I think that's fair enough. I had the same problem with Henry Blofeld in the cricket, who seemed to be above all criticism but irritated me beyond belief. Jonathan Pearce in the football is another one I can't cope with.
