OLN/VS worst announcers EVER

8 posts in this topic

I keep wishing and hoping that the WIld would get a few more nationally televised games, but after watching last night I hope they never play on VS again. I have never been so aggervated to listen to a game ever. If the TV and radio were synched I would turn off the TV sound. I almost wanted to turn off the game anyway.

Thats what we get because of the lockout. I guess its good that they picked up the NHL, but I hope people are crawling hands and knees back to the big networks. Maybe we can get on ESPN2. That shouldn't cost much......

Be thankful you could even watch the game I'm pretty sure a lot of markets don't even have Versus!

I made the same comment to my wife about how terrible the announcers were.

Get used to it, the NHL signed an extension with Versus right around the all star break. I was hoping for a reunion with ESPN but I guess money talks. I think it might even be a pride thing with Bettman, "We can make it on our own, without you." My one suggestion to Versus would be to have at least 3 games a week on. Where guys can at least expect to have hockey on. Remember ESPN's Wednesday night hockey? It was great, every Wed. you knew there was going to be a great game on. And the teams always tried a little hareder knowing that they were on national TV.

I will have to agree. But any game I get to watch in HD is worth it!(if you have yet to see a hockey game in HD your missing out!) You can always listen to it on the radio as you watch. I do that with the Queens all the time.(Seems like we get their announcers every game)

National game? How many people get VS?

I had VS with Time Warner and now with Comcast and they are both nationwide cable companies. I don't know anything about the satelite networks, but cable wise that should be pretty universal. They wouldn't show "national" games on networks that aren't available everywhere. Maybe if you're on a small company or some sort of satelite deal where you don't get everything, but with the big cable networks, they are pretty universal with their lineup of channels around the country.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
