Roofles.

A petition has been started in Kansas City to ban the services of Rich Gannon as a commentator during televised Kansas City Chiefs games in 2011 / 2012.

To view the petition please visit:

http://www.petitiononline.com/nogannon/petition.html

More on what caused this petition:

Seriously, has everyone been listening to Rich Gannon when he does the commentary for our games on TV? This guy CLEARLY hates the Chiefs. I don't know if it was the way he was let go by the Chiefs (don't remember the details - maybe one of you wiser contributors can fill us in) or what but this guy is constantly cheering on the other team. I know one thing, if you go from the Chiefs to the Raiders then your relationship with the Chiefs at the end of your contract HAD to be sour. You don't just go to the Raiders without hating the Chiefs first.

So Gannon is assigned (stupidly) by the network powers that be to babble annoyingly throughout all of our beloved Chiefs games. Gannon constantly talks at length about how great the other team's QB is, talks about what the other team needs to do to beat the Chiefs, Gannon is completely one-sided! I would turn the sound down on the TV and turn on Lenny and the boys on the radio but now I record the game so that I can skip the commercials.

Luckily, the Chiefs have stumped Gannon most of the time. Sometimes with incredible timing! Most memorable was this past week when Gannon was just about to start talking about how great Kerry Collins is and in mid sentence Collins threw the ball right to Berry for the pick 6. That was awesome. Gannon shut up and didn't talk for a few minutes after that. The same thing happened during the Jaguars game. Do you remember how many times Gannon talked about how great Todd Bouman was and how they kept cutting to the stadium to show his family - like 7 times?!! This is unacceptable, how do we go about requesting someone (ANYONE) else to commentate for our games - Gannon has to go.

Am I the only person who doesn't really like to watch recorded games? I'm kind of used to the flow of the game with commercials, and fast forwarding through stuff kind of throws off my game-watching rhythm. If that makes any sense.

LOL what does this have to do with Gannon? I re-watch almost every game. And yes, when I do that it's nice to FF through commercials, but you can't fast forward through a commentator.

Nevermind, my original signature for some reason isn't on there. I know I submitted it though because it said there was 44 signatures at the time. Oh well, did another one.

I don't notice him being biased really. He is horrible and should be shit canned all together. That goes for about 65% of NFL announcers.

I've sometimes thought he was biased in support of the Chiefs if anything. Chiefs fans have such a big chip on their shoulder, any perceived slight is amplified X10.

In Gannon's defense, he is great to listen to on his afternoon show on Sirius NFL Network. He knows his shit.

I agree that Gannon is great on Sirius with Adam Schein. Remember on regional broadcasts the announcers are talking more to the visiting teams fans and not the home team fans

Rich is annoying, to be sure. He's far from the worst ever though.

Imagine the trio of Don Criqui, Randy Cross, and Cris Collinsworth.

I like Collinsworth. He's kind of a dick, but he isn't afraid to take a shot at the NFL media darlings when it's deserved. He also doesn't let officials off the hook.

Radio is always a play or two ahead for me than on TV(I have U-Verse). On T.V., it's about a 10 second delay, for me, anyways.

I could pause the TV broadcast but I hate knowing I'm missing Chiefs action when I could fast forward during commercials.
