OLN/VS worst announcers EVER

Recommended Posts

Powerstroke

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)

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.

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.
