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.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!

      Trout fishing thru the ice is a blast!!!   Their hits are usually aggressive like that, makes it exciting. They put up a pretty good fight too.
