Davidson=Clown

Does anybody else puke when John Davidson says "Oh Baby." I mean, he says it about a hundred times a game. Everytime there is a big hit, or a big save, or a near goal he screams out "Oh Baby." ABC could save a lot of money by just pulling some guy off the street and having him say this stupid line. Davidson is a Ranger homer who doesn't really add much to the game in my opinion.

He's the better than Gary Thorne and Bill Clement, as he usually provides something useful to the telecast.

I don't know if that says more about JD than it says about Thorne and Clement, though.

I actually think he is one of the better color commentators when not doing Ranger games. In fact, did he ever mention the Rangers during the finals?

Completely agree.

He's not nearly as over-dramatic as those two are, as well.

I'd rather him do color than any other guy I've heard.

It's his "catch-phrase".


What would you rather have him say? "I'm Spicy?"

:lol

After Kobe hit the tying shot in the NBA Finals tonight, Al Michaels said, "As John Davidson would say, OOOOH BABBBY"

Kind of cool how a hockey commentator's quote makes it to the NBA Finals.

while i am no fan of clement, and especially thorne, i think davidson was far worse than eitehr. he repeated the same things over again, crap analogies, and never provided insightful comments imo. i couldnt stand him. hes like john madden: master of the obvious and no real insight and the telecast would be better w/o him.

It'd be cooler if most of the US basketball viewers knew who the hell John Davidson was.


I can't stand him. Hate him on Satellite Hotstove.

Davidson is an idiot

All Davidson does is state the obvious, or he will say "Wow that was a great 45 second shift for Messier." He just says some of the dumbest things.

No, he just hyped Chris Simon all series long, and provide numerous anectdotes of his Ranger days.
