I honestly don't get it either?
I was trying to think of a sports announcer that genuinely angers me, I know there are some, but I suppose I don't take it so seriously that they would ever anger me.
Everyone thinks he is anti whatever team they like. I know yankee fans think he's anti yankees, Red Sox fans think he's anti Red Sox, Giants and so on...
I even read that Cardinals fans think he's anti Cardinals and that was his team!!
Perhaps people are just used to their local guys sucking their teams dicks so when they hear someone being objective they think they are biased?
I admit he sometimes says silly shit but what the fuck are you going to do when you have to blab for 4 hours straight and there's nothing going on? He really knows the game, that's for sure.
bob costas is a blowhard with stupid fake hair color
He's very loud
i used to have a girly crush on him.
You're a big man Dieon.
He repeats things that were stated minutes earlier acting as if it's fresh info.
How are the commentators in the camel-jockey sports?
I grew up a Braves fan and have hated him ever since the Deion fight. He criticized prime time for playing in a NFL game and MLB playoff game on the same day, saying it was a breach of contract. In fact, it was probably one of the most awesome things to have been pulled off in professional sports. Deion is the only person to score a TD and hit a HR in the same week. Anyway, Deion started repeatedly dousing McCarver with water when he could and McCarver was a total pussy about about. Called Deion a coward. Deion said something along the lines of, "How can I be a coward for dousing someone with water? He wanted us to lose and we won sop he got wet. We were just having a good time." I just thought ever since then that McCarver was a tool. the other reasons in this thread I also agree with.
Bob Costas (the college dropout wanna be political and social commentator}who should stfu is worse than Tim McCarver IMO, but Joe Buck needs to die soon.
I dont really mind him in the long run. He is getting older and I have noticed that he is Captain Obvious when it comes to his observations. But then again I guess he is catering to the not so average fan that doesnt know shit about baseball. I kind of laugh when he says something and I just go
McCarver was an average (At Best) catcher, and I think what pisses people off, is that he comes off as an authority on everything having to do with baseball.
The truth is, he retired early because he wasn't that talented, looked good in a suit, so he got hired to be on TV.
with all due respect the guy had a career over 20 yrs in MLB. Retired early
He was so bad at catching that Steve Carlton only wanted him to catch. Its science.
Only a jock sniffer would know that stat.
(With all due respect)
