MNF Crew

I normally disagree with people who always claim that announcers are biased against us. Thats just plain ole homerism.

But that crew last night certainly sounded like they were pulling for Carolina. It felt like they were hoping they would succeed on every play.

Did anyone else notice that?

I said the same thing. Usually when folks are screaming about the commentators, it doesn't bother me. You nailed it this time...They were rooting for them, it was beyond obvious.

Re: MNF Crew

And I will add to it, I have held my opinion back on Witten because I genuinely like the person (yes I hate Dallas). But he is just awful, simple as that. Did ESPN just assume because Romo is so good that Witten would be too? What were they thinking with this guy???

Re: MNF Crew

Dallas Cowgirl Jason Witten is one of the worst. It was pretty obvious who he wanted to win last night. IMO he's a bad announcer.

His Panther pom poms were out last night.

Re: MNF Crew

The announcer crew was horrible.

But I thought this thread was going to be about the refs. They were horrible too.

Reid tackled with his head the entire game. Not flagged once. MT stiff arm but somehow they said it was an offensive face mask?

WTF are the refs watching?

I used to love MNF when it was Mike Tirico, he was so unbiased and just loved calling the game.

Re: MNF Crew

Yes. There was a lot of Carolina ball gargling last night. It was horrible.

At one point, one of them was saying how great the Carolina defense was reacting to the play action the Saints offense was using. He said this after the Saints got a first down. The other dumbass had to correct him and said, "Well THAT time it resulted in a Saints first down."

And yes the officiating was awful too....again.
