Someone ruined a football game last night

I have NEVER been so agitated - when Monday Night Football comes on - I am usually in the kitchen, starting dinner, my back is to the TV..so I listen - low and behold, I could not listen...a most grating voice I have ever heard.

STOP ESPN..you make me think you have a salary cap when it comes to your announcers...this person does not know football - this person tries to talk tough, and even fails at that - like I said to my hubby, if I was a blind person I wouldn't know what the hell was going on....and that voice..I had to mute the rest of the game...

Off to write my note to ESPN......MNF is on the line as it stands right now...

2. Someone doesn't like female play-by-play callers.

 

Not my favorite, but I thought she did a very credible job.

3. This has nothing to do with being female...I give credit where credit is due..this

announcer, male or female, was disgusting...Griece was no better, but at least he KNOWS football...please help me understand what you saw as credible? - for now, if ESPN continues down this road MNF will meet its demise....

Joe Buck and C. Collingsworth are put on mute as well....IMHO.....

11. The asses also had buffoonish conspiracy talk about soul-mates.

 

So yeah, fail indeed...

(if we're talking about the international industrial-massage complex, that is. Otherwise, Stalin breathed the same air as you, which is about as valid as the comparison you used)

14. I really don't like Finebaum

When did he get a job? He's one of the reasons I only watch ESPN for games.

10. ESPN MNF really needs to up their game...I guess I will have to lower my

expectations for now....difficult to listen to, putting it mildly....mute allowed me to watch..although a complete slaughter - I would love to have been in the locker room with Patricia - or maybe I wouldn't...

13. She isn't even on the main MNF cast

They had 2 games and used their main crew I thought Jason Witten was too new myself but I think she does a fine job as a play by play caller. She isn't a color commentator so she isn't expected to have deep analysis.
