Michaels & Collinsworth

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Someday perhaps the broadcast technology will allow for me to mute the color man and keep the play-by-play man ... or choose the radio commentators in place of the TV ones. Until then almost every game is gonna sound bad ...

Re: Michaels & Collinsworth

As far as analysts and announcers geaux...

Collinsworth is a little too whiny for my taste...

Simms can be wrong, but he's passionate, professional, and knowledgeable...

Gruden's done a long enough tour and needs to coach the LSU Tigers; but he's funny and I've enjoyed his stints...

Don't always agree, but Ron Jaworski knows his craft...

Another one that alienated the big markets because he called it like he saw it was Joe Theisman, who I hated because of Notre Dame AND Washington, but I came to respect him as both a great gameday and studio analyst and don't think he got the love as he should have...

A guy I liked to see get more of an opportunity is Solomon Wilcots, who's a national supporting character, but has done a nice job for regional games, both collegiate and pro...

Another guy I'd like to see more of is Chris Myers (who old-time WWL listeners might remember); he does a great job, just needs a good analyst...

I absolutely hated...

Dierdorf - is he truly retired?!? He was in Beano Cook territory for me; so glad that Greg Gumbel will get a new partner; he must have slept with someone's daughter to be paired with Dan...

Billick - never has one clown gotten more real estate as an "offensive 'genius" with a defensive juggernaut...

Brian Baldinger is another Saints-hatin MFer; omg, couldn't stand the guy...

Al Michaels - never has one clown gotten more real estate out of one "Miracle" - and yes, he's phoned it in since...

Marv/Kenny "the biter" Albert and son - someone please give those men enemas, QAM/PRN, please...{sic}

Chris Berman - San Franciso, Buffalo; Buffalo, San Francisco; San Francisco, Buffalo; Primme Timmmme; someone please, get me my Sig...

Then there's Bob Costas, and his ego-centric belief that sports exists so that he can pass his grace upon us; he's on a list that an intimate cadre of my friends/specops have a standing order to punch in the face on site without approval from central command...

Sideline Reporting

Can't stand Siragusa and dislike Tafoya...

Love Pam Oliver (she can take a hit too); and no better sideline entertainment than when old guys like Joe Namath were hitting on Suzy Kolber...

Post Game Commentary

Love Terry Bradshaw - the ultimate rebel and Howie Long; can't stand Michael Strahan - he's too politically correct...

Other than Fox, which is okay; all studio shows suck balls!

Humor LifeTime Achievement Award went to Buddy Diliberto; he thought he was funny because of his jokes - he was the joke with his suffering succotash drunken slurs....

And the Buddy D Annual PostGame Humor Award for the fourth straight goes to Bobby Hebert; though his shows are enlightening, I now know more reasons why Mora drank Pepto and didn't like throwing the ball...

But on a more positive note, I like Tim Brando and would like to see him call Saints games...

Sure do miss the Howard Cosell/Frank Gifford/Dandy Don Meredith MNF team; they were the best even if Cosell was aggravating at times...

But there was nothing better than Jim Henderson and Archie Manning when the Saints were winning - it was a state of grace as far as Saints announcing went...

AwfulAnnouncing.com does a funny job of pointing out gaffes...

Marv was the biter, not Kenny.

Re: Michaels & Collinsworth

I think Aikman & Gruden are the two best color guy's today. No BS and know what they are talking about. As far as play by play, they all leave a lot to be desired.

Re: Michaels & Collinsworth

My intense hatred for Cris Collinsworthless dates back to his time in the studio on the FOX Network. You can tell things lightened up more after he left. He was a ***** towards Howie Long. It always seemed he played Devil's advocate against him and ridiculed everything Howie would say. You could almost see Howie grinding his teeth to keep from reaching over and snapping Cris' neck.

LMAO!! To be honest it used to get me pumped when he would say that then I started noticing he would say it on every play and I eventually just began to ignore him.

Back on topic, I actually like aikman and collinsworth. Gruden is slowly pushing me away with the whole "Gruden Grinder" and "split z y banana" catch phrases.

Re: Michaels & Collinsworth

I think the game should be called as it is played with out all the side bar commentation, graphics, and residual opinions.

Post game should be players talking (Full stop)

They have all referenced bounty-gate and Katrina many years past their relevance.

Costas can just go to hell.. i mean Atlanta.

Michaels & Collinsworth

Speaking of analysts and talking heads..., who's the female at the counter to the left on MNF?

Who's bright idea was it to have females talk football anyway? I'll be frank, I am not a sexist and it has nothing to do with competence. It has everything to do with men have no place selling feminine hygiene products or designing bras.

While I'd much rather listen to Pam Oilver than Bob Costa.... But Id prefer Tim Ryan or Pat Kerwin over both.
