Do those idiots even like each other? You know the "ESPN' Professional Analysts"
I am not sure where to start ....oh how about the medical show the ditz on the sideline inserted. You know the one where we got the picture of the pretty pink appendix........now that really got all of us all settled down for the game.

NUMEROUS miscalls of players (even called Aaron Smith Hampton on one tackle. Come on, Casey is uniquely shaped if nothing else). The third iteration of Joe "I Have Diarreah Of The Mouth" Theisman's recitation that Ben stunk because he only threw 37 passes in preseason, he, it OMG I can not stand that idiot. If he made any sense at all........

Hey,,did you know that Ben had an appendectomy?
And that this is his first game back?
And that the Jags are a small market team?
Who don't get any respect from the national media?
And that Big Ben is back?
Unless he isn't?
And that this is his first game back after an appendectomy?
And that Dwayne Wade is in the house?
And that Jacksonville is a small market team?
And that this game is over?
Unless the Steelers score a TD which will give them the lead when the score is 6-0? And that Casey Hampton and Aaron Smith are easily confused for each other?
And that Tony Kornheiser isn't funny.
And that Joe T. seems to have gone senile at a young age?
And that the lead announcer joins that large and growing trend towards announcers who seem to know zero about the nuances of football..but can read the promo's very well indeed?
And that this is Big Ben's first game........ These guys couldnt and shouldn't pass an audition in Butte, Montana for the midnight show

There's not to many announcers I want to hear call a game and the ESPN crew is one of them. That Mike dude and Korn-holio I like them, but Joe needs to go!

Want me to do it? If someone would pay for a microphone and sign up on Yahoo Messenger, I could do the commentation for the games for all of you. I would love doing it. I been praised before for giving out great reports. I did a Cavaliers game as a contest winner and Joe Tait the voice of the Cavaliers on WTAM AM radio was so impressed he told me I should get my license and boardcasting degree and join WTAM SPORTS. He said I sounded like a pro.

The monday night crew leaves much to be desired. For a minute there I couldnt tell if it was Dennis Miller in there or not :chair: They seriously need to re evaluate that group because MNF is too big a stage to have a bunch of yahoo's on there trying to figure out what the players names are!

I have yet to hear a TV announcer that I like to hear call a game. These guys are just *******s! Don't get me started.

HoS, I don't think computer mics are that expensive. I have one in my bookbag for when I do voice chats on yahoo msg every once in a while. I know I have a few lyin around at home and lookin at the mics I do have I can't imagine they would be more than a few bucks at Staples.

I hope Theisman loses his voice permanently one of these days.

If I get a mic, I will let you all know and I will do the commentation on the games if you like for me too. I would have a real ball with that.

I need money you know. My budget is very tight and I haven't bought anything for myself in 9 months. Pretty damn sad. I hope I can ask my brother in law if he has a spare one, but I doubt it.

I think Tony Kornheiser is a good foil for Theismann...he keeps Joe in check, and calls him out for all the stupid things he says.

What irriated *me* most about the announcers--according to them it was a GREAT game with BOTH sides playing hard until Jax scored a measly FG--THEN they basically made it sound like we'd completely stopped playing.

Such a COH after ONE FG?? THAT'S what ticked me off.

Yeah--they can get someone better in there, and I'm all for lettin' HoS call the game :greengrin:
