@Sndvl1999 @awfulannouncing Stockton has tenure though, so he's always going to get a pass...

@BroncosItaly @iveyjanette_207 im sure Bolerjack would have been an available option, but it could have depended on what college game he's calling this weekend and where it's taking place.

@Jason_Shetler @Gersh_Essential its not easy to suddenly have the ability to capture the intensity of a sport. It can take time and effort to get there. The NFL is a powerful animal to capture. Very different from Ultimate Fighting.

@DaleMoog you are making a big mistake there, a number of divisional games, where divisional games no matter what the record, have that rivalry and that extra energy.

To be honest, it does not really matter who they put out there, it will still draw higher ratings than anything else on TV.

@iveyjanette_207 @BroncosItaly If anything, the 49ers and Chiefs have not been as consistent with up and down play, i think it's more likely we see a blowout one way or another in the KC-SF game than the NYJ-SD game..The jets had chances to win the games they lost in the 4th quarter, and with them knowing the season may be at stake, i expect the jets will be at least competitive, even though they probably will still lose the game.

@tommyha5 The New York and Los Angeles Markets are getting this game, the number of and level or markets play a bigger part on what announce teams are chosen, as opposed the quality of the contest. So stop pretending to act like you know anything.

i watched a good part of this show and while it has great ideas, it has plenty of issues right out of the starting gate.


You know the saying "Too many cooks spoil the broth"? There was way too many people on this show, which means there's no way for anyone's personality to come across to the viewer. No one is going to be able to connect with the audience when the show's cast is almost as big as the audience viewing it

My thought is they should just pick 5 or 6 people to have on each week, even if they are different each week. With 10-15 people, everyone came off as super generic.

I don't see the point in having Rousey beat up Barbie dolls in 2 minutes. That's all a fight with Carano would be. ANd I sure as hell don't feel sorry for UFC from a marketing standpoint, where Dana White has found marketed success from basically legal glorified organized dogfighting.

@jcapace869007 you cant live in the past forever, eventually new people have to step in, there were plenty of average announcers back in the 80s, we just do not remember their names or the games they called because we didnt care about them back then.

@Rajshakur i really cannot blame Fox for cable companies not carrying the channel. Although the price is a bit high, probably due to lack of subscribers. Hopefully it drops some in a few years.

$14.99 a month is a bit much, also if you have a normal 9-5 job it's not going to benefit you. It'd be cool if NBCSN did something similar with it's premier league coverage though.

@eslrush 1  it's not just the 2 teams quality that decided what announce teams go where, but the number of markets it reaches plays part, so that has to be one of the factors.

2 nfl decided that certain games will get swap networks over the course of the season, not sure why this one specifically was switched but there has to be a logical reason that we do not know about, also that team is getting stale, they need to be broken up.


3 baseball ratings are terrible now, it's not exciting to fans anymore, so i cant blame espn for dropping some focus on it.

@floyd_pink its really easy to place blame on Goodell, but if he goes, who takes his place that can change things? the commissioner is just a puppet when you compare the problems that exist everywhere else, from greedy players, greedy executives, and most importantly, greedy owners,  if you want real  change, you have to make changes everywhere, not just at the top. And Goodell is not really the top, because he just panders to owners.

the  negative headlines, other than the Redskins thing, are a result of people making bad decisions in life. a handful out of about 2000 players, and thousands of former players will consist of a few people who make bad choices, ad those kinds of people will exist in any organization. i really can't place a significant amount of blame the nfl for Rice beating his g/f, Sharper raping women, Hernandez killing people, and Incognito being a huge douche.

@brandonfranze @Beaube Nett because teams do not want to risk losing the valuable 1 point they get from getting to OT, especially when you see how every point can matter in today's NHL. The best thing to do would give teams who win in regulation 3 points, like they do in the Olympics, and you will see teams taking a few more chances later in the game.
