    This is just incredible, and it's getting worse and worse. Never have I seen the kind of bias I'm hearing now, and then adding in Griese who is just a total ******* with every word out of his mouth about how he likes what the Ravens are doing. Absolutely despicable.

    I have had my volume off since the start of the 4th QTR.

    The bias is over the top.

    ESPN is a joke.

    I can think of two things that are more appalling:

    1) The fickleness of the spoiled fans on this site
    2) Your team's run D

    Jaws is openly rooting for the ravens. I thought they were supposed to be partial?

    I want to thank Kornheiser for RUINING yet another game. I constantly had to hit the mute. The sound of his NY voice makes me want to throw my remote through the TV.

    i agree, i spend all day getting psyched for the game and then i get more irritated as the game goes on by his distracting comments that HAVE NOTHING TO DO with what's going on on the field

    Ravens have the announcers, Pats have the refs. It all evens out.

    I'm sorry, but I was just stunned by how the whole broadcast team was ACTIVELY rooting against the Pats. Good God. I saw another thread below titled Embrace the Hate, that appears to be our only option at this point!

    It sounded like the Ravens radio broadcast.

    The thing that got me was after the 1st qtr Jaws and Tony sounded like the Ravens had won the game. It was bad these guys need to be replaced.

    Wish I could share your pain guys, but after ten minutes of the first quarter I went straight to the radio and didn't look back.

    My only gripe was the guys doin' it here would nonchalantly announce:

    "The pass is up, and it's in......... (waits four seconds).... complete/intercepted"

    That drove me nuts, but it was better than Kornheiser/Griese/etc.

    Oh, and anyone keep track of the "is this the night?" comments?

    I want to apologize to the people I chided earlier today re: complaining about telecasts. I was wrong. This was a total debacle tonight. HORRIBLE job. Clearly ROOTING for one team. It's out of hand.

    What got me was Kornhole's opening bit about how much BB is hated by all, and isn't that a good thing!!!! My audio was off most of the game as it only got worse from there.
    Good game, Ravens played with a lot of heart, too bad the broadcast booth was only working for their own benefit.

    I am sorry, but everyone complaining is completely wrong. Seriously.

    OF COURSE the broadcasters get excited when it looks like a HUGE UPSET. This could have been David slaying Goliath. Americans in general root for the underdog, and I guarantee 90% of the viewers were rooting against us for that reason.

    Why is that a problem? It is GREAT! It shows how dominant we are. It shows how good everyone KNOWS we are.

    Except for the Patriots this has been a relatively unexciting season. (I wn't say boring, some would, but I don't believe the NFL can ever be truly boring.)

    Our team is the STAR OF THE LEAGUE.

    Everyone roots against you. You're team gets every call. You're coach is a cheater who was caught. Harrison was caught taking HGH. You run up the scores for no reason and make other coaches look bad. Why would anyone like you?

    My one rule for night broadcasts: NO Pregame.

    The worst moment for me was after the Ravens had made a play and Kornheiser started laughing that Shula was punching him on the shoulder with glee. "I can't help myself," the old coach said.

    This is tiresome, at best. :bricks:

    forget about what they said, just listen to the tone of Tirico's voice, everytime the Ravens made a play, and then his monotone voice when the pats came up with a play.

    The best call of the night in NE's favor was Billick's timeout.

    You guys should switch to those old NY Titans uniforms. Maybe then you'd reach .500 or something. I'm just saying. :D
