Gumbel does not belong anywhere near a broadcasting booth. Collinsworth is just as annoying in his own arrogant know it all way, but Gumbel is just flat out annoying. Im not sure if i can even listen to the rest of this game. This has to be the worst duo of broadcasters that were ever calling any game, anytime.

People will complain about any announcers in the booth. It seems like it is now trendy to dislike whoever is calling the games. It makes no difference to me unless there is a bias there.

this is the first time in my 28 years on earth that I have ever complained about the annaouncers with the exception of Dennis Miller on MNF(that was a mistake). Bryant Gumbel is 10 times worse than Dennis Miller IMO.

Agree 100% very very few announcers I dislike and its guys like Tim Green doing a Saints Falcons game or Madden doing a Brett Farve game.

I didn't mean you in particular, I just mean whenever there is a new or old, for that matter, announcers on TV someone is always complaining about the coverage. I just don't understand why people care so much as long as they are talking about the game.

Personally, my favorite announcers were Jaws, Vermeil and Jackson when they called the second of the double header on Monday Night Football earlier in the year. They were very fluid and informative. I hate how MNF brings in celebs!!

yeah i know what you mean, I was just saying that Gumbel should not be a broadcaster, period. Not only does he have an annoying voice, but he really doesnt know football very well. He is making bad calls and he sounds like he might have some sugar in his tank, not that theres anything wrong with that.
