What I h8 about the NFL......

I don't mind the two MNF games. The second game is west coast teams anyway, so the only people with beef should be west coast fans living on the east coast. If that is the case, you probably wouldn't have seen the game if it were played on Sunday anyway. Unless you have a satellite package, I suppose.

As far as the sideline reporters, I remember Eric Dickerson should have put his well-worn jock strap over his mouth. And don't even get me started on Siragusa. I agree, I don't mind Kolber too much. Erin Andrews is where its at, though - she should stop doing college games and move to MNF.

I have a bigger problem with MNF. Why is the score in the middle of gd screen?!? It always covers up the receiver lined up on the bottom of the screen so you can't even see who is in the lineup. That's the worst...how ESPN made that decision is beyond belief.

What I hate about the NFL is all teh damn commercials. For God's sake, they take breaks in the game just so they can do commercials. How stupid is that ? The commercials should have to find their own way into the mix. I know commercials exist for a reason, #1, to essentially collect revenue to pay the players to play, and #2 so that consumers don't have to pay to watch teh games, but c'mon! Seems like when you watch a game it's about 80% commercials and 20% game. It's getting out of hand.

Machelle Tafoya (I butchered the spelling of her name) is legit in her knowledge and prep. She started out at the AM sports talk station KFAN in Minnesota and then went on to host the local WCCO (CBS) news as the No. 2 sports anchor. She was very very very good at it and was really No. 1 sports anchor grade but no way was she ever going to unseat Mark Rosen. She was so good at her job that she got hired by various national networks to do sideline stuff over the years. I am not sure what network she is currently with, but I do know this. She knows her stuff.

Suzy Kolbar's voice is the audio equivalent of removing an india ink tattoo from your stomach with a cheese grater.

All that enthusiasm and perkiness, no thank you.

Well, I am a diehard football fan, and that is the only reason you didin't lose me when you started complaining about two MNF games. They could show 16 games on Sunday and play 16 more Monday and my appitite would not be sated. Not feeling ya at all there.

As for the sideline slu....girls. Since there hasn't been anything worth hearing from the sidelines since Suzy did Joe.......I mean the interview, you delinquints. I could care less about who is doing sideline reporting.
All I really want from the sideline reporter is an accurater injury report. The human interest stuff is crap for the masses. The chicks aren't there for men, anyway, they're there for women. Otherwise they'd have them dress like the skanks we all want them to be.
