I don't mind John Madden, actually. The sound of his fat in his voice is kind of funny I think.

Deion Sanders and Marshall Faulk were surprisingly entertaining the one time I heard them on NFL Network.

I wish Westwood One would sync up their radio broadcasts with the TV broadcasts so I wouldn't have to listen to any of them.

Deion Sanders is a great announcer but an even better analyst. Anybody ever seen him Marriuci and Rich Eisen on NFL Gameday? He makes it a lot of fun.

Jaworski, Greg Anthony, Mike Tirico and Bill Raftery ("with the KISS") are some of my favs.

I despise Dick Vitale and Tony Kornheiser.

I also like Bill Walton, but I know most people hate him.

I really liked the old SNF crew on ESPN. I like Al Michaels, Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, Mike Tirico...

I don't like Tony Kornheiser because his only purpose on MNF is to be the "common idiot". I really don't like John Madden, because he rambles on so much while saying so little.

Yeah, Chick was the man. I didnt put him down for obvious reasons, but that dude was a true Laker. Miss him, his end of the game put it away quotes were legendary.

Have you heard Spiro on the radio? He's way better than Joel Meyers that dude sucks. I wish it was Spiro and Stu on TV.

He is the single best announcer. No other announcer brings a good knowledge of the game while also bringing excitement like him.

Madden is the epitome of a dumbshit doing color. Everything he says is ****ing "duh." Kornheiser is a complete joke and has no business broadcasting anything. No one else really bothers me.

I havent heard Spiro, but Joel doesnt bother me to much. Stu is ok, but sometimes he's a huge Kobe nut rider. Kobe's my favorite Laker atm and all, but he does some knob polishing . haha

People like Joe Buck? What the f*ck? He always sounds like he downed 2 bottles of Ny*Quil before the game. The old Sunday Night Football crew? Really?!? Jesus Christ. I remember wishing in those days someone would snap his vocal chords in half.

I'll probably get a lot of disagreements, but I think Rich Gannon and Kevin Harlan make the best announcing team in football now a days. Rich Gannon does a very nice job breaking down details of what's going on via a strategical standpoint and Harlan has always been good about enthusiasm. He could make a Lions/Rams game sound exciting IMO.

Agreed.

Harlan, Gannon, Jaws, the old Sunday Night Crew, Madden, Moose, Siragusa, all are good. Musburger, Cross, Dierforf, Nance (was the BCS game the only one he called all season, and, if so, why the Hell did he?) suck. The rest serve a purpose, but could be better. If your Daddy was a sportscaster, you're qualified? All the 2nd gen announcers suck.

Yeah they are good at building up a game, but it's because they have a lot of practice from covering all the shitty games.

A mixed bunch for me, I like Al Micheals, can't stand "Mr. Obvious" John Madden. He never has anything insightful to say, describes what I just saw and explains the game as if to three years olds. Needs to retire. Can't stand Collinsworth as a studio guy, but like his color commentary during a game. Kevin Harlin of course, Aikman is alright but should not be allowed to call Cowboys games too much af a "Homer."
I love Dan Patrick on Sunday nights, but bias as I listen to his daily radio show out of L.A. Howie Long and Terry Bradshaw are fun to watch. The "Bus" is suprisingly good. Also really like Phil Simms, class act.

I don't pay that much attention to the announcers but when they are so biased like yesterday,(pulling for the Titans), that I notice it then I get aggravated. The announcers need to call the game and quit letting their personal feelings interfer.

If we're going to back in the day, I still think Charlie Jones was the best, and Merlin Olsen is the best ever color commentator.

When Al Micheals had Dan Fouts on MNF, I thought that was a good combo...

Fouts always seem to have some very good insight...

Only problem was the NFL and its MNF schedule was almost unwatchable at that time...

I'm not fond of Collinsworth. I don't know if it's the subtle smugness in his voice, the stupid jokes he ALWAYS makes about his career, or the fact that he constantly looks like he's dropping a massive deuce.

But, in his defense, Phil Simms, Dan Dierdorf, and Randy Cross are worse.
