you know, madden really is terrible, but he's so bad that it's funny. whoever those jerkoffs were last night (what did you say? mcguire and theisman?) weren't even funny. just annoying.
it was like sitting next to grandmother (a huge dolphins fan) and listening to hear scream in my ear all night, except i love my grandmother--even though she's lost her mind. how do those guys hold down a job when they're rooting so hard for one team? for a while they were blowing winfield (buffalo's cb), but it was a token gesture.
hey boys--don't blow anybody. just call the game. give me an updated injury report, give me some insight into their training regimen, give me a stat comp, even some heartwarming story about a coach's or player's triumph over struggle. all of that is either welcome or tolerable.
rooting for one team on a national broadcast is amateur. i'll take your jobs, thank you.
You know, I used to hate Mcguire and Theisman, but after awhile, you just learn to ignore. I was pretty ambivalent about Madden too, until last year, when he started going off on the "A-hole", THAT was hillarious. So I usually end up listening closely to him to see if he'll go off on another gaff like that.
The only person that I really liked to hear and see, was Melissa Stark. Dayam, she was nice.
Theisman and McGuire are by far and away the worst two idiots to listen to call a game on the planet. Every week no matter what two teams are playing they will find some player who is "one of the greatest ever" and they will continue to blow smoke up that player's arse all game. It makes me want to puke.
I used to hate listening to Madden, but after listening to those two idiots on ESPN I don't mind him.
The worst announcer of all time is Pat Summeral. He's so bad it's funny. but looking at him is even harder than listening to him. His liver spotted hands gripping the microphone like it's his life line. thank god he's gone .. or is he?
Theisman on the other hand is the biggest wind bag in announcing game. Just wait for the redskins sunday niter, he won't shut up.
One more is moose johnston if that guy says jetskin one more time i'm gonna, i'm gonna i'm gonna do something.
Thankfully I had Sonny, Sam, and Frank to save me.
Another guy who sucks is Dan Deirdorf, I mean if not for the fact that he sounds like a 14 year old kid with that lissspp but he also makes dumbass jokes that are only funny to himself as evidenced by the lack of laughter from his poor broadcast partner. Dont mean to dog him out for something thats not his fault but it his job and gets paid handsomly for it even though he's not a very articulate speaker. Theismann used to bother the hell outta me but he's not the worst, at least he's kinda young and in touch with today's players. Summeral cant make the list cause he was just getting soooo old and had some sort of medical problems, like Alzeihemers or whatever, I feel bad for him. WORST Sportscaster ever??? Has to be Bill "Smoke 'em if you got em" Walton. I could do that job if people wanted me to say "Throw it DOWN big man" or " ONE TIME, ONE TIME" or extoll the virtues of players that have been dead for 30 years about 50,000 times per Lakers game. What a tool that guy is
The only thing we have to fear is.... another injured Denver RB!!!!!!!!
ya'll are right about the commentators. The worst thing i ever heard one say was after Joe Montana came back from his injury.
One some something like... "Joe's the best ever... blah blah blah... I don't care if he throws an INT, it'll be a pleasure just to see him throw the ball" WHATEVER!!!!
But I would like to ask Madden and Summeral, Just how much fun they had making the movie "The Replacements"
