When calling a game such as this with a bunch of no name players, the most important thing for the broadcaster to do is to call the damn play - mentioning the name or/and number of the player as often as possible. Really, who is going to bother watching a game between these two rosters? Only a hardcore fan. Gene should realize that and take it into account when calling the game.

I turned the game off at 5-0, and as bad as the team was playing, the bigger reason was I just couldn't stand listening to another second of that brutal commentating. Try to muster some freaking professionalism and concentration for the next game please Gene. Today's effort was unlistenable.

How about #47? He tuned his man up pretty good, no?

Just wanted to quote these wise words. Something we should probably all give some thought to when posting here. Well said bucks. Sig worthy stuff imo.
I wish Gene knew how terrible he was at one part he said "Trouba gets it out of Troouuble" such a ****ing idiot sometimes,
keep your freakin puns to pre-game warmups.

I wonder if anyone has told him personally how bad he sucks at commentating.

I like the guy, but just stay out of the commentators booth.
