Doesn't mean US guys can't do a perfectly good job...but I'm largely unimpressed with 'em. Doesn't mean they don't do a decent job, but at the same time they're working that gig because they got passed over for the premium jobs here.
Well I don't think an american will ever get a job in the UK doing PBP. The accent is just a death blow. It doesn't mean they are less talented it is just it doesn't make sense to hire an american even if he is as good or better an announcer. Not to mention the stereotyping of being an american announcer.
