I've seen lots of trauma in this world. But there are only two things I credit with truly ruining my sense of humanity:

The Atlanta Flacons, and Joe Buck.

That is all.

First thing, nepotism. I don't think he'd have gotten anywhere close to his current jobs without the family name.

Second, and this may just be me, but I prefer commentators to specialize in a sport. It's tough enough for guys to cover multiple teams in one sport, let alone multiple sports. It usually means you aren't getting very insightful commentary.

This, x 1000. It's why I can't stand that pretentious little shiat Bob Costas, because no matter the sport, he acts as though he's the utmost authority on it. Baseball, football, horse racing, golf, The Olympics, etc, the smug little bastard knows it all.

Plus there's his bizarrely cadenced delivery, and the fact that about half the time he's telling you about what's going to be coming up later on Fox while a football game takes place behind him,

And I agree with Orgasmatron138, if you substitute "play by play" for "commentary". Because he doesn't know the sports or the teams or the players well enough, he is unable to offer insightful play by play. He can't anticipate what's coming and therefore know what to watch for, and so he tells us no more about the play than we saw with our own eyes, and in many cases less.

/Stuck with Buck and Aikman for my local Fox NFL broadcasts. It's bad enough most weeks, almost intolerable when its Redskins/Cowboys.
//ObTrivia: growing up in England, "commentary" actually meant "play by play", and the term "play by play" was unknown.

He's actually effective at calling a game, football and baseball, at least from the technical side of things. The issue (and I think he's said as much in an interview once) is that he's not a fan of the games he covers, and it kind of shows.

Contrast him to Bob Costas. Yeah, NBC seems to use him in the most annoying ways possible (FNIA, inexplicably having him open their Stanley Cup coverage and I'm pretty sure his name will be cursed many a time during the Olympics), but he's almost a different person entirely when he's calling games on MLBN since he's genuinely passionate about baseball.

I think he comes off as passionate, but I think he does his homework. I suppose I could be one of the few who thinks that. Plus, he's a good story teller.

Joe Buck, on the other hand, is awful.

The Bears have Sam Rosen and Erik Kramer, who actually do a pretty good job. I would probably mute the TV and try to sync up on radio if I had to listen to farkface and ConcussionHead every week.

When Joe first broke into the NFL, I enjoyed his simple approach of letting the game speak for itself. You're on TV, you don't really need to explain much of the play other than the player who has the ball and who is making a tackle.

In fact, I hate most broadcasts because it turns into a wall of talk where the announcers feel they need to fill the whole broadcast with somebody speaking.

As time has gone on, Joe has gotten more preachy and opinionated, which is very irritating.

I'm pretty sure the Randy Moss fake mooning incident happened quite a while ago.

A meesage from Aikman:
You're absolutely right, subby. I couldn't agree more. My part in the tandem of myself and Joe Buck is to always agree with everything Joe says and narrate the events on the replay monitor. Joe's job is to blend in with vanilla pudding at the grocery store.

For all the Joe Buck hate, we need to remember that there was a time in our lives when Joe Theisman and Paul Maguire were in the same booth. I would rather treat Buck to a lovely dinner and have him call the play by play for the dishwasher than see the JT/PM tandem ever again.

How many people do you cover in either sport? Maybe enough to dress two football teams.

I've had the idea but not enough support and motivation to protest the Buck/McCarver tandem at the local Fox Studio (Fox25 in Dedham, MA at the Rt 1 and 128 interchange) I can't be the only one who wants to grab a lawnchair and hold a sign in order to keep them away from my ears.

It's been a real treat this weekend for this Yankees fan in Atlanta (going to the game tonight btw, weather permitting). MLBN had Thursday's game against the Rays and Friday's game with the Mets (both games called by Bob Costas and Jim Kaat), Fox (Buck/McCarver) had Saturday and TBS (Ron Darling/John Smoltz) had Sunday.

Yeah. Unfortunately the "sync up" part is too much work. I'm seriously considering switching to the Spanish audio. I've tried it with soccer when ESPN's second team is doing the game or anytime Kasey Keller's mouth is moving, and it works pretty well. You get all the stadium atmosphere and the name of the player on the ball, and it turns out that nothing in between the names was actually adding anything to the commentary.

Man, Joe Buck sucks, but it's even worse listening to St. Louis sports. We're the poor bastards who let those assholes into the industry, after all. Without the Cardinals, Joe Buck and Tim McCarver are selling blowjobs instead of buying them.

You mean like a stadium audio feed? Some baseball teams offer that on their live streaming.

I like to turn the audio down and let the girlfriend narrate it, for hilarity.

"He takes the ball and he THROWS the ball, and the other guy catches it with his hands and he falls down, and the play ends and he gets up and they slap each others butts, and they walk back to the side of the court and is it a touchdown? It might be a touchdown wait here comes the umpire, he says the team was pushing with their hands, no, holding. 10 yard penalty. Does that mean they have to do the play again?"

Anyway it's better than most of the broadcasters because she doesn't know that the delay between "Personal Foul" and "Unnecessary Roughness" is a contest to see who can say "TEBOW" the most times.

Sadly it does not :(

I have thought the same thing only just have a play-by-play guy just tell me the down, the yardage etc. just a minimalist broadcast. I have to mute football broadcasts all the time, especially 3 man broadcast teams who get into babble competitions. There are great color guys in football though like Gary Danielson though who focus on the game and what is going on or what is going to happen. The bad ones seem to spend all of their time talking about what just happened to try and make themselves sound informed (Jaws, Tony Saragusa etc...).

Most baseball games are normally done pretty well I think, I like ESPN's national crew as well as most home teams crews (I have the MLB package).
