Most annoying thing about the NFL?

Moderator: Football Moderators

Postby J2thez929 » Wed Sep 28, 2005 2:55 pm

Worst thing about the NFL is the announcers! It doesn't matter what channel the game is being broadcasted, every announcer/analyist is absolutey horrible. Especially the ones all over Favre or Manning's jockstrap.

One more thing I dislike about the NFL - Games are only on Sundays and one Mon. I wish the NFL played everyday :-D

I bet this monday night John Madden will say that Brett Favre is having another pro-bowl year.

He always says good things whenever Favre throws a pick too.

Commercials before AND after kickoffs. No doubt.

AND the fact that they haven't forced ESPN to fire Paul Maguire and Joe Theismann.

I can't stand undeserving players holding out for more money. I also don't likehow the play clock is 40 seconds. That may sound stupid but it means more plays if it's shorter!

The announcers are a good call. Madden is a joke at this point.

To stem from that - I hate it when announcers try and correlate meaningless statistics to prove or make a point.

So much disinformation is gonna drive me batty one day.

The announcers, hands down. Especially Joe Theisman - I get really depressed listening to him. His vocal output consists of: 85% his negative opinion on the players or coaches, 10% something negative about something his co-announcer said, and 5% related to what actually happened in the game. I truly hate him for ruining my experience of the game.

P.S. Losing a PBC the game before a bye week blows... :-P

How true. Favre can do no wrong in so many people's eyes. He could throw for only 500 yards over 16 games with 3 TDS and 20 INTS and they'd still be kneeling before him calling him a warrior.

I hate John Madden. I hate Joe Theismann and his buddies more. I hate it when any announcer tries to talk about fantasy football when he clearly has no idea what it is, or how to play (classic week 1 comment, "I bet not many people had Willie Parker on their fantasy team this week"). I hate Running-Back-By-Committee. I hate Coors Light commercials.

Im pretty sure standard PBC are for 1 week. Therefore if you lose going into your teams bye week you only have to wear it up through the next Sunday - not the full 2 weeks.

Also - PBCs are intended for division rivals and special games in particular - not every matchup, so that also kinda indicates you only wear it for 1 week.

Hope that helps. ;-D

The most annoying thing about the NFL. EASY!

The seperate rules the league has, meaning: The rules that have for the patriots, and then the rules they have for the rest of the teams in the NFL.

Officials let the patriots cheat, WHY!
