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......

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.

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .

      The waves have been bigger than i've ever seen the past 3-4 days on Ottertail.  Don't know how that is affecting the walleye bite... but its a mess out here.
