Brent was right when he said that girl was beautiful. Any red blooded male would agree with that.

I think Brent should do what all **** old men would love to do; Judge college wet T-Shirt contests. His color man can be Marv Albert dressed in womens lingerie with a new pink toupee.

Hammered I love all your choices. I would also include the Monday Night Crew, Mike Torrico and John Grudin. It would really be nice if they would hire a radio play by play announcer and 2 side kicks that really hate each others guts.

Just about every play by play announcer never calls the play they Oh and Ah and then tell the viewing audience who the ball carrier was and how many yards they gained in the aftermath of the play. Everything the viewer knows already. Many times they ignore the play completely, especially in blowout games as they carry on conversations like; Look at that hot babe, or, who do you think this loser team will draft in 2013? I want an announcer who calls the play like this, Quarterback #10 or Name , is in a shotgun or whatever formation, he takes the hike, he hands off to the RB #23 who runs to the left, he finds a hole he cuts to his right he breaks a tackle, he is tightroping down the sidelines to the 25,20,15, and is brutally hit by defensive cornerback #32 who sends RB #23 cartwheeling for 5 yards out of bounds and just barely missing one of the cameramen sitting along the sideline. Then let the color man tell us what a great run he thought it was and why it worked. The reason many of the TV guys don't call play by play is because they can't. The reason why NFL Films uses radio announcers voice overs for their greatest plays is because the Radio Announcer is involved in the game and show some emotion for the game.

^^^^^^ and I forgot---- Have them dress in some tacky NIKE or POLO blazer, I miss the old ABC yellow blazers that had their companies logo on it. Better yet have them wear something as bad as last years Olympic team, with a hat and scarf. If the networks are going to give us jokers as announcers then they need to dress them appropriately.

The only person I can't stand is Jon Gruden. His smug, "I told you so," attitude is like nails on glass.

Lou Holtz was ok in his hey day, but gawd, this man is just too old. He slurs his words and looks like he could fall over at any time.

C'mon folks, give Musberger a break. He was just saying what was obvious and what every male was thinking regardless of age. He didn't even get close to being over the top. If he had started commenting on breast sizes, then yes. But what he said was vanilla fare at most. Stop being so GD PC, America!
