With some downtime between games I wanted to get everyone's opinion on the announcers for NFL and college football games. I also want to know if I'm the only one who can't stand most of the announcers anymore.
I don't watch many games on CBS but they don't seem to be that bad. I don't mind Al Michaels on NBC he seems unbiased and knows the game well, but Collinsworth I can't stand. On a side note was anyone else getting sick of listening to Gibbs and Theisman talk about Theisman's punt 30 years ago. For ESPN I don't mind Tirico and a game caller but Jawarski just gets annoying about 5 minutes into the game. On FOX I usually get stuck with Buck and Aikman and I really don't like Buck.
For college I like the FSN crew more than anything that ESPN/ABC has to offer. Musberger isn't bad but he's nothing great.
I don't tend to watch pregame shows but when I do I usually watch FOX. Bradshaw isn't bad, Long serves no purpose at all, Strahan has loads of money and still can't close his front teeth and Johnson looks the same now as he did in 1993 and thats weird.
It seems to me that football hasn't been the same since Madden and Summerall and Keith Jackson retired. No one has proved worthy of replacing them.
That's just my opinion feel free to agree or disagree I just need to vent on bad announcing.
