Top definition
Noun. A spoken stock phrase or phrases uttered by a sports commentator or sportsperson in order to fill broadcast airtime rather than to illuminate the viewer/listener with useful facts or analysis; particularly prevalent in UK soccer commentary. Puntabanta is frequently obvious, redundant, tautological, absurdist, or a combination of these.
"At the end of the day, at this level, it's a game of two halves."

"Certainly if they had scored more goals there is every chance they could have won."

Puntabanta like this devalues the language and pollutes the intellect.
