Now THIS is a brutal announcer

Not only does he rip the shit out of a player, it's a player from HIS OWN TEAM. Check it out!

Hope the announcers had their own transportation home after the game...

A good announcer shouldn't have "his own team." That's why Vin Scully is one of the last greats. He is the Dodgers announcer. But he never roots for the Dodgers. He just announces.

Duane Kelly said...

The announcer got a little redundant with the "stupid and arrogant" (which the play was) and then just in case we didn't get it, dug down deep to give us "unintelligent."

John, you're better than that. John... look at me, John... John?

You're better than that.

Dan Tedson said...

I think you found your homerun call.

Scott said...

Yeah, but he wasn't wrong.

Johnny Walker said...

Sounds like the sports equivalent of Chase v Harmon.

I'm sure that's nothing compared to the new asshole his coach probably ripped him when he got back to the dugout. It's one thing to jog a couple steps to add some momentum to the ball; it's another thing to just walk it over to first and hope the batter's already given up.

Holy crap. That announcer should be shitcanned. How the hell does anyone cover a sporting event at any level and do that? This team is in the Northwoods League, which is a summer league for unpaid college players. UNPAID college players.

This comes from too many people in broadcasting conflating reportage with their "insights".

In response to Kevin B.'s comment: I think viewers expect their team's announcers to be rooting for that team, just not in a pandering "yes men" way. What are your thoughts on this, Ken?

This will be about as far as either of these announcers ever get in their broadcasting careers - if it lasts much longer. Especially the color commentator. Maybe he's confusing color with off-color cause he's as bad of announcer as I've ever heard in my life.

It was a bad play. say it, get past it. HE becomes the hot dog.

Friday question: what do you think the Dodgers sale will mean for the franchise?

Is it just me or did he sound like he had a bucket of cold ones in the booth? He sounded like he was slurring a bit. And apologizing [quite sloppily I might add] to John's parents was just low class. How about you NOT say something so "stupid" and "unitelligent" in the first place?

It doesn't matter who HIS team is, that is just over the top for any announcer to do. Poor John. The hot dog.
