Yeah, I feel for you guys having to listen to that clown.

The funny thing is that Colorado managed to get rid of him and yet their TV crew is still just as terrible as it used to be 8)

How can anyone argue with the brilliance of this?

John Kelly screamed, not wrote:Here comes David Perron. IN TO COLAIACOVO! OH TO THE NET! And it just went wide. Tkachuk gets it. THAT SHOT BLOCKED! COLAIACOVO! HE SCORES! OH THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! THEY HAVE DONE IT! COLAIACOVO!

At least you're not Columbus. Those clowns have to be the worst announcers in the league. The Joe Morgans of hockey...only worse, if that's possible.

I had the local Altitude feed for last night's game. I haven't watched any other Avs games this season and didn't realize just how bad their announcers were now. Ugh. My wife got so fed up during the 3rd that she got up and took the dogs for a walk in single-digit weather instead. We could send Kelly back to Denver and it would be an upgrade for everyone.

I love how the guy calls each game with the same loud monotone...terrible.

The nice thing about having Center Ice is many times they broadcast both the home and away feed. I'd love to have Canadian broadcasts of every game. (They don't seem to let the color guy ramble on over the entire game.) I'm still not feeling Pang is much of an upgrade yet.

I really enjoyed the 10 min conversation about how 40 is open now and how it affects John, Darren, and Bernie's commutes during the game.

It really adds to the experience of the game doesn't it?

Whatever happened to Dan McLaughlan on the pregame show? I live in Kentucky and just got directv/center ice this year, so I don't know how long he has been gone from the pregame show.

Also, I agree with most and am very, very thankful we have Panger on our broadcast team.

Maybe someday we'll be able to see Kerber/Chase on FSN Midwest though.

Yeah, I haven't seen him lately either. I cant remember if he was doing blues games earlier this season either. But good for him not that I particulary likethe guy but he is one of the announcer for the Cards, he probably shouldn't have to interview players at intermission or go do mo state womens volleyball. He's been pretty much Fsn's bitch fo a while maybe that has change, he sure has gained alot of weight though.

I've noticed Joel Goldberg is back with FS Midwest too. I know he went to Kansas City for awhile to cover the Royals and such for that area, so I don't know if he's just back working the Blues games with FS Midwest or what.

As for Dan Mac, maybe he grew a pair and said to the top dogs at FS Midwest that since he was the Cardinals announcer, they shouldn't pimp him out all winter long.

Another example of Fox Sports Gold. :roll:

Who the hell decided that people want mindless stiffs, that suck the organizations azz, move as if they are made of rusted steel, with hair that couldn’t possibly hold more gel covering their teams.

Did they take a survey? Was there a poll? I can’t believe it’s a mere coincidence that all these guys are so close to the same nor that they all suck.

No original opinions, no flexibility in their shoulders, no gel left in the bottles equals a fat pay check I guess.
