    Unlike the other networks, CBS will not have sideline reporters.

    ``In my opinion, the guys in the booth are going to tell you what's going on in the game," he said. ``They're trained guys, and the less distractions, the better, the more you can concentrate on the football game. How many times can you interview the coach running off the field at halftime?"

    (from today's Globe)


    Personally, I am all for getting rid of sideline reporters. I don't care about interviewing players and coaches in between every play. I just want to watch the game.

    ESPN has always driven me nuts with Suzy Kolber on the sidelines. Not only do we have to have her interviewing somebody every two minutes, but she goes on and on and you miss half the game. Even worse, the questions, like "Coach, how key is it that your tee-umm beat the other tee-umm?"

    Thank god I've watched stuff like last night and the Hall of Fame game, people are intercepting passes and scoring touchdowns and all we are hearing is this stupid little interview down on the field. Thank you CBS!

    Yea, I agree the sideline reports just take away from the game. And while we're on the subject of things that take away from the game I'd like to get rid of the commercials too.:D

    Or at least not go to a commercial at the end of every DRIVE after EVERY punt after EVERY kickoff. It f**king pisses me off.

    But without sideline reporters we would never have had the "I just want to kiss you," moment. And I just thank God I was tuned in to see it.

    I know it, one of the football moments that I was really glad to be able to witness live. I was on the phone within minitues to my Dad and a bunch of uncles all over the country laughing my ass off. :D Ahhh... history.

    At one time not all that long ago, 10-20 years ago (before the first big contract agreement between the NFL and the networks) you didn't have the ridiculus stoppage in play that you do now. I can't watch those commercials, I'll click on to another game. It really interupts the flow.IMHO

    Me too. Except I was on the phone to my mother screaming, "did you just see that?!" Truly a wonderful moment.

    I still remember watching that in utter disbelief. It was surreal. And then spending at least 3 hours laughing it up at the expense of a couple Jests fans I know.

    Also, sideline reporters suck.

    You are so right...and without sideline reporters I won't be able to say to my wife, "Man if I were that bad at my job I'd get fired."
