Play by play guys on sunday

13 posts in this topic

Was in just me or were the guys who did the vikings game on Sunday just brutal? I don't know their names but one of the guys didn't know what he was talking about and kept fumbling his words and calling the wrong players.

I thought they were some of the worst play by play guys I have ever heard.

It has improved since Hank Stram was trashing the purple 25 years ago.

Radio or TV?

I'm assuming you are talking about the TV guys, Bill Mass and the Nascar guy...they were terrible, but not as bad as the camera man. He must have been hung over, he made me dizzy trying to follow the ball. I wouldn't be surprised if Mass asked Julius Peppers to go steady after the game, I sensed a big time man crush.

I didn't like them either. My hubby just called me in to watch the highlights, since I couldn't stand listening to them.

Of course, I'm not allowed to watch the game in the same room with him after the remote throwing incident a couple of years ago. His bruise healed up quite nicely, though. grin.gif I guess I get a little edgy when the defense stinks.

I thought I recalled him saying "pissed off", when Napoleon Harris sacked the QB by the goaline, then he changed it to some other adjectives.

What an interesting turn of events in that game with the special teams play by both teams.

2-0!

Turn the sound off and listen KFAN. The commentators on FOX are horrible.

I was talking about the TV guys. I always thought the KFAN boys do a pretty good job. PA should get the homer of the year award every year.

The camera guys where bad as well. I thought that fox really stunk up the joint with the telecast. Bad camera, bad commentators, bad production all in all.

I would turn the tv volume off but I was switching between the twins and the vikes and I wanted to hear the twins game. Also the delay between tv and radio can drive a guy nuts.

Agreed on the TV end. That camera man will never play defense in the NFL, he fell for the play action every time!

PA is in the Homer Call Hall of Fame at 1310 The Ticket in Dallas. He's more tollerable this year by some degree but my cartoon bubble shows him listening to his own replays.

Read the Star Tribune column today; that guy had the same opinion as you guys (and me too).

Bill Maas would say something insignificant or just plain stupid and Steve Byrnes would brown nose with a fake laugh or "Bill, you are a wild man". Give me a break. I thought Byrnes was not a good announcer for Nascar coverage, why did he get bumped up to NFL?

Hopefully this weekends game will be deemed worthy of a better team, but rest assured when they play Detroit we will get them again.

I agree, last Sunday was pretty good. I like Dick Stockton.

I checked FOX Sports website, it's Ron Pitts and Terry Donahue this week, I guess I don't remember them.

Steve Byrnes and Bill Maas do not have a game this week. FOX has 6 games and they are obviously the #7 or #8 squad.
