Opinions on the Swiss-German commentary on SRF during the ESAF weekend by Hofmann and expert Adrian Käser are divided. Many have asked themselves why dialect works in wrestling, but not in the national team and in alpine skiing. Quite simply, if Dani Bolliger, Head of Live at SRF Sport, has his way: “The fact that Stefan Hofmann commented on the wrestling festivals in Swiss German is an exception. We want to do justice to wrestling as a traditional Swiss sport in the language of the comments.”
