Do We Need Commentators in eSport?

eSports seems to have taken the route of traditional sports as far as commentators goes but some competitive game type could do without them.

If you take fighting games, for example, there's too much occurring in each second of gameplay for any commentator to be able to properly comment on. It's frustrating to me watching old EVO gameplay and just earing commentators saying non sense about what's going on in the 2-3 min round. Commentators are not needed here.

It make sense to have commentators for things like Racing games where the action is a little bit slowed as there's not that much differences, from a commentator's perspective, with real racing.
