He once referred to Tony Romo as Rick Romo and once stated that Marion Barber was the heart and soul of the Packers offense. Terrible

Joe Buck Report Abuse
It boggle my mind how this man is considered the best announcer in the nation. Buck is the single most boring human being to ever speak into a microphone. He is never insightful or entertaining, and calls games with absolutely no emotion or joy. He main goal seems to be to remain as vanilla and uncontroversial as possible.

I don't mind Buck, but he and Aikman are starting to wear on me on Packer games.

Tim McCarver Report Abuse
The Gold Standard for awful announcing: Tim has an annoying voice, is consistently arrogant and a know it all, plus is constantly proven wrong. He adds nothing to the broadcast and his "insights" consist of shallow obvious, observations yet he considers himself a baseball genius

I wish my remote had a mute announcer 1 or 2 button so I could enjoy watching sports. Tim McCarver talks baseball as if he is explaining the game to people who have never watched or played it before. I can't stand him

Pam Ward Report Abuse
Pam Ward stinks at her job. She gets basic rules wrong, mispronounces names and misses the action of the field. She has yet to master the very basics of her profession. Plus, she's quite masculine.

Tony Kornheiser Report Abuse
As a writer and TV personality this man is funny & insightful. As a football announcer he is catastrophically horrible. He gives zero insight into the game, tries to entertain with bad jokes and over-hyped storylines and generally ruins the flow of the contest with his constant jabbering about anything except what's happening on the field.

Phil Sims Report Abuse
He is a very biased to one team and loves to talk about himself and the points he has made about a game (especially if they happen). Just count how many times he says in a game, "like I said earlier", "like I pointed out earlier". He has zero personality!

Jon Gruden Report Abuse
a self promoting know it all who always seems to be wrong. He will tell you what is going to happen and it doesn't. Also, when demonstrating what happens on a past play he even gets that wrong. I feel bad for Mike and Jaws as they have a handle and don't talk much

Mike Emrick Report Abuse
A hockey player doesn't knife a puck, twirl a puck, tick the puck or rifle the puck. In the 2013 finals, Rask stopped the puck and he described it as the "artistry of Rask". On the next play Crawford made a stop and "got in the way of the puck". Give me Pat Foley any time. O

White Sox announcer (old time). Boring and half-dead. A long pop up was usually a home run.

Joe Morgan Report Abuse
A man so bad at his job that a blog was created specifically to detail his failures. Morgan is not only boring and misinformed, he almost makes it a point to admit that he doesn't watch many baseball games and he uses this as an excuse to not analyze certain things even though HIS JOB IS TO ANALYZE BASEBALL. Also, he to noted as hating statistical analysis and believes the only people who know baseball and those who played it professionally.
