Okay this is just terrible

Postby Lordrevolution » Mon Oct 15, 2007 10:31 pm

Can the Monday night crew please for the love of all things holy, talk about what's actually going on in the game? I'm sitting here, Brandon Jacobs disapears for a quarter, appearently was injured, and they meantion it sometime in the second half. Arg!

Who needs MNF injury updates when you have the injury and player updates forum?

You still love us, right? :-o

That was more of a comment about them not talking about the game then Jacobs being injured.

And while I'm here, did anyone else get pissed at the weird camera angles? They'd always zoom in on someone (9 times out of ten the wrong guy or a coach) before the play starts, so you're disoriented when they quickly switch back for the snap, and by the time you get what's going on the play's over. And of course they're debating as to the importance of Toomer's record (which nobody in the entire planet cared about) which happened two series before.

As a matter of fact, I (sort of) care about Toomer's record because he's a Michigan Man.
But, as long as I'm taking advantage of creative linking, you may find it interesting that we have an entire section of the forums devoted to complaining about MNF.

a radio show - granted, heresay - was talking about this topic today. It was danced around but it was stated that ESPN wants to take the monday night program into more of a discussion of issues around the league type of format with less focus on the game. That's certainly believable the way they've been so far. I can't stand the current group.

I have no facts to back that up. I'm mostly just commiserating about the broadcast. It is awful.
