Does it take away the importance of the Boilermakers hosting the Golden Gophers on an October Saturday afternoon?


Not really but I don't need Rachel Nichols or Michele Beadle to keep the ex NBA'ers in line.

All of Espn, except Lebatard is a bore.

I PVR everything and fast forward through all the trash and just watch the pure action of a game.

 

Sort of sad this includes the first minute of a quarter of an NBA game as they put the action to about 1/5 of the screen to ask "duh... are you happy your team is down 12 points at the half?"


I have never for one second understood why LeBatard is on the air.

Al Michaels didn't play and I'd take him over any current or old player.

Michaels is still the best, in my opinion.

He calls the game without preaching to us.

 

And most games he calls that I watch are of half-interest so I ditch them as soon as I'm bored or they are garbagetime.

 

Collinsworth I can do without.

Why bother, too much time spent watching games I don't really care about anyway.

I'm the father of two daughters.  I don't want sexism to work against them in whatever fields of endeavor they pursue.  
 
So for the sake of daughters everywhere, I always cheer on the advances of women in traditionally male fields.  
Congrats to Beth!  Great news!


Same here -- girl power!

With all the terrible announcers these days, I can't image she won't hold her own.

they keep trying to grab as many nickels and dimes as they can out of the "untapped" women's market for "various forms of entertainment"

 

it's just not the same as it is for men who gladly hand over $$$$ for "various forms of entertainment"

It doesn't matter if the announcer is male or female, I always have the mute on as I can not stand listening to all their cliques, The only only one I may listen to is Troy Aikman.

@thefootballgirl

Caught up with new MNF play-by-play announcer @bethmowins. She is amazing and so well-positioned for this gig. http://thefootballgirl.com/beth-mowins-monday-night-football-2/

I guess I'm not that discriminating when it comes to football announcers.  

 

The only guy that ever annoyed me was Dennis Miller on MNF.  

 

Other than that exception, I really haven't cared much who's in the booth.

Joe improved with me by his entertaining regular guy affability on podcast and uncensored interviews.

 

I look forward to the next game where I have enough energy to really get cheezed off at the dumb things they say on the mic.

Dennis was something else.

 

But they were stuck on what to do for replacing Cosell (your mileage varies there in the first place) after Joe Willie and Mumbles O.J. Simpson epic-ly bombed.

Madden and Michaels were my favorite NFL crew

 

Summerall and Madden were also right up there.

My requirements have changed.  With big screens and better coverage I find I'm not getting any info that I didn't see watching the play.

 

Radio coverage is good for the NFL, you have a local crew who knows the teams and tells you how they are lining up and anything unusual out there.

 

TV is all national announcers who fly in on Thursday for the Sunday game and have no inside real knowledge about the team, and show it all game long.

I can't believe anyone is worried about her when Rex is part of the team. Rex could be paired with Vladimir Putin and I'd be more concerned about Rex.
