Avs' play-by-play guys are the WORST!!!!!!

I just got done watching ESPN's "The Season" Part one on the Avs. And they have the MOST ANNOYING p-b-p announcer in the league;he's even worse than the Coyotes guys. I feel sorry for you Avs fans who have to listen to those morons game in,game out.

The Avs are the biggest homers.....
The Yotes are the worst in just the sheer listening factor...

Emerick is the best of them all.

Aren't all teams broadcasters supposed to be biased? Unless its national TV, I see no problem with it being in regional.

By the way, I live in BC so I don't hear them, but yeah they have some ugly voices.

Yeah Avs broadcasters are the worst. By far the most biased and least knowledgeable.

supposed to be homers.. Mildly. Supposed to be blatent homers with no reguard to the other team on the ice, ignoring all sense of reality and going off on tangents about various Avs players at times.. No not at all.

Wings have Ken Daniels and Mickey Redmon. Daniels already had a past with HNIC so hes a pretty good Announcer. his voice when saying "scores" can be annoying. Redmon is an ex wing, but hed probably say hes an ex hockey player first. He wants the wings to win, but ive never heard him say anything blatently 2 faced when something happens on the ice.

the avs guys are HORRID.

then again, nothing ranks up there with the idiots on ESPN comparing a holding non-call to a highsticking that knocked teeth out.

There are plenty of guys that have played in the NHL and still suck as broadcasters. Ryan Walter and John Garrett come to mind...

They are bloody awful mate but, have you heard the mighty ducks guys? The fellow actually says "CAN WE TALK ABOUT IT" when they score. That is just the worst thing I have ever heard in sports. He also spent most of last season calling players anything but thier actual names. I would say that the Kings Bob Miller is one of the best but I also have enjoyed the Isles, Leafs, Rags, Devils, Sens and Habs tele crews equally well. The good ones are truly good, then there are the average, and then you have to bloody awful. The Ducks crew take that award for me. Pitty as the team isn't half as bad as all that. In rank of worst 5 for me would be, (1 =worst 5= best of the worst or least bad)

1. CAN WE TALK ABOUT IT!!!!! Mighty Ducks crew.

2. The Biased rubbish that spills out of the Avs crew.

3. That Idiot who does the play by for the Yotes. He should be spade or nuetered and sent back to WWF. He truly isn't ready.

4. The crew who does the Thrashers. It isn't that he doesn't know what he is talking about, its that he just grinds you down on the most useless trivial bit of nonsense that I can't take it.

5. The Sharks crew. How bad can one person be at thier job. I would say that if it weren't for the fact that they have a solid colour man that they could be competing with the Ducks.

Those are my worst 5. The Avs crew is truly awful but when the team is that good, it is a wonder why they wouldn't put as much attention to having the best tele crew they could. The Ducks crew are the worst for my buck.

If your a Kings fan you are bound to hate the Ducks announcers. Ducks fans probably hate Bob Miller and Jim Fox.

What I've heard him compared to mostly is someone who should be calling a horse race. He just talks so fast andrunsallhiswordstogetherlikethis, I'm out of breath just listening to him.

Let me be the first to say that Steve Coates of the Flyers should be taken behind the woodshed and shot. I didn't say shot and killed, just shot. That way Gary Dornhoefer, who actually has a clue, can be given more time to make statements that pertain to things happening on the ice.

Actually, most Avs fans smile when the Avs score. I can see why it might annoy their rivals, though.

No mate, it is well beyond any team rivalry. The "CAN WE TALK ABOUT IT" thing is the first part of the trouble, it gets worse from there. The Nucks announcers are fine as are Wings, BlackHawks and several other rival teams crews. This is more about how truly awful they are then anything to do with our being a rival, truly.

As much as I loathe the Avs' team, the Sharks team and the Nucks team are both at the very least just as bad. LA has a bad duo as well.

Of all the announcing teams that I can vividly remember, the Devils seem to have the best overall.

Neat.

Actually watching the Sabres/Panthers game I remembered another that I cannot stand:

The Sabres guy is horrible--it gets even worse if there's a fight. And I think it was Enoch who named the Yotes pbp, he's terrible as well.

Say what you will about Kielback (the Yotes play by play guy), but he's been around for an awful long time. He was the Jets radio play-by-play guy for years before the team moved. Personally, and maybe its because I grew up listening to him, I LOVE him. I'll admit that he comes across better on the radio, but I'd have him call every game I watch if I could. Anyways, regardless of whether you hate the guy, he's about as "ready" as he's gonna get.

Oh are they terrible. I can't stand the "THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!" Regional broadcasters tend to be a little homeristic, but wow, it doesn't get much worse than that.

For those that don't know of them, here's a pretty accurate description.

Miller and Fox ain't that good. Then again, I'm a Ducks fan. Also, it's "Let's Talk About It", GET IT RIGHT!

Dude, no one is better than Rick Jeannerette. He is by far the god of hockey announcing. His voice is like no other. He's even better than Doc.
