Chris Berman is a stuttering bafoon. Does anyone respect his

Postby theimitator » Sun Nov 06, 2005 11:25 am

I watch this guy week after week, and I still can't figure out why he has a job. He doesn't have anything fresh to say (he could...go...all...the...whatever....), and seems to be lost when he's reading the teleprompter.

Do I just not get it?

I agree that Berman sucks.

His material is old and he runs out of breath during most of his points.

He sounds like he is going to pass out.

Well, other people like TJ actually have something to say. Berman doesn't have anything to say that actually matters. He tries to give everybody a nickname. It's fine if you're only doing it some of the time, but he attempts way too much. And his voice...jesus christ. Swami Sez is egotistical as hell, too.

I'm glad somebody finally agrees with me that he is an idiot and the worst ESPN has. ;-D

He's not bad, he's entertaining.

Better than Madden at any rate.

Berman's schtick is tired and worn out.

His popularity is based on a gimmich. He has no substance and can't get by as a legitimate broadcaster.....he should retire.

This is the problem, football tends to make chimps of us fans. Why does anyone watch week after week?
It has been so long since Berman has done anything new that he has become a caricature of a caricature of himself. He is now a painful reminder of how out of touch networks can be.

Thank you! That's actually the most entertaining thing about Berman.
