I've never bought into the hype surrounding Robertson, but even so I was shocked at quite how disrespectful he has been about Warren Gatland's brave yet totally justifiable selection calls, not to mention the players who have been brought into the Lions team. The "picked some names out of a lucky bag" comment is particularly unbecoming of a supposed "respected commentator". Agree or disagree with Gatland's individual calls, he's picked the team that he thinks is best suited to beating Australia and it is just embarrassing that Robertson chooses to denigrate him and his team in such a petty way.
I'm in no-way a union supporter, but Robertson is top of the list of terrible BBC 'sports correspondents' - as you say yourself, over rated and, I think, not quite up to speed with the current era of the sport.
