No more Bryant Gumbel on NFL Network! :-) ;-D

http://cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/story/10773697
LOS ANGELES -- Bryant Gumbel has given up his role as an NFL Network play-by-play announcer after two seasons.

The NFL Network said Friday it was looking for a new play-by-play announcer to work with Cris Collinsworth on the network's Thursday and Saturday night games.

"I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to call NFL Network games the past two years, which was a new experience for me," Gumbel said in a statement. "But we've agreed that we'd all be better served going in different directions."

You know I'm almost sad, it was so much fun laughing at how horrible he was. Collinsworth is still pretty crazy in the booth though I'm sure we'll still have plenty of laughs.

As for a replacement, what about the 2nd guy NBC uses for their playoff weekend coverage, Tom Hammond? I love his play-by-play voice.

Bryant Gumbel has given up his role


Gave it up everytime he tried to talk football.

I will miss hearing that droll voice tell me about the wrong team or player. Ahh, good times.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?
