We always enjoy input from our fans, and tonight got the following email from a fan who must have been taking in the Eagles-Bengals game on FOX, and had to say the following about the announcing crew that was made up of Kevin Harlan and Daryl Johnston.
Here is what he had to say about the crew that seemed more interested in the Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco love fest than calling the game:
All the announcing stinks. I am so sick of being talked to like I’m stupid. I want the announcer to tell me what is happening!!!! When did they ever get the idea that I care what they think? And to second guess every play is amatuerish. When I started turning the sound off I found myself much more immersed in the game. I remember players better as well as the plays because there is no stupid distraction from a guy who thinks his job is to talk constantly. I could go on and on with plenty more but I have made this comment for a constructive purpose.
There must be others out there that feel as I do and turn off the sound, no???? What we miss is the stadium and crowd noise. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE can we get the sounds from the stadium, public address etc. on another channel or on the internet without the professional announcers who lately have made all sports not about the game but about themseslves. Lets get this done!!!!!!!!
While there are announcing teams that I do enjoy, there are more that I would have to say are becoming more and more annoying, and that are looking more for their time on celebrity gossip mags than making sure they call the game the right way. Keep it coming NFL Gridiron Gab readers, and we will continue to publish your thoughts on announcers in the game today and make our voices as fans heard.
