as much as i would like to hear rodney i just hate olbermann so f-ing much i just cant do it
I've watched a little bit and Rodney is great, very comfortable up there. I can't stand overbite though, when did dan patrick stop hosting?
Olbermann is seriously doing the commentary? Well, it is NBC so I can't say that I'm suprised. Still though, as I've said before, I'm one of those "wierd" fans that loves the game so much that I can watch the game without commentary. So, needless to say, I'll be tuning in. But jeez, what a horrible decision. I'd imagine that NBC is going to lose a healthy chunk of their viewership just from that choice alone.
i wonder how olbermann feels having to sit next to rodney after mocking the pats for the spygate scandle and tom brady for losing in the SB to the giants. i bet he would not dare say **** like that to rodneys face
Olbermann irritates the s*it out of me. I know he used to be a sports guy, but since he's been in the political world for quite some time, it looks odd having him doing sports highlights.
Let's be clear. The announcers for the game are Al Michaels and Chris Collinsworthless. Olberman has a role during the halftime and postgame shows (not sure about pregame). If Olberman was actually announcing the game, that would be the last NBC Sunday night game I would watch.
Yep, Odorman will never be on my TV.
same here....10 char
x3 ....10 char
Actually, Dan Patrick asked Dungy and Rodney about the worst completion made against thier team (in reference to the Stokley catch) and Rodney, of course, pointed to the Tyree catch. Then Dan said something along the lines of "Keith wanted me to ask you that, Rodney". It was a strange, uncomfortable moment.
And Olberman is a smug douche.
Holy crap.. I didn't know Saint Dumpy was related to Spock! How about them pointed ears??
just another reason to hate olbermann
Among the various pregame shows...this has to be the worst in my opinion.
Patrick I can take for only short bursts...Olberman tries too hard to be inoffensive(lest if hurt his real job) and lacks actual analysis beyond your average fan. ESPN's crew makes these guys look like amateurs by comparison.
I hate Olbermann too. When did he go from witty Sportcenter host to angry douche?
Patrick is ok with me but I never like olbermann, even when he was on espn. Actually I think the rest of the crew is tolerable but I refuse to watch anything with olbermann
Either when he joined FSN or when he joined MSNBC...
There you have it. Olberman is a douche (or an angry douche). Either way, he's a douche.
I despise olbermann more than Collinsworth. I tuned in when Harrison was telling his hazing story. Then olbermann makes some dumb comment and they all just stare at him. I can't take 2 seconds of that db. Collinsworth may make me just give up on SNF before the season is over but if it was olbermann I wouldn't be watching now.
No one watches his stupid show or his stupid news network so they have to do this to try to save that station from failing. I'm sure most of the people there, including Costas, are embarrassed to have to deal with this guy.
As much as I love Rodney, Odorman just makes that show intolerable.
Olbermann is not calling the game, he's on the pre-game and half-time show in studio along with Dan Patrick, Rodney Harrison and Tony Dungy. In other words you only have to put up with him when there's no football being played. Al Michaels calls the play-by-play with Cris Collinsworth as the analyst.
I think from the comments in this thread it is obvious that the biggest problem with Olbermann is not his knowledge, or lack of knowledge about football; it's his politics. For networks it can be a fine line between being a lightning rod that will attract interest (e.g., Howard Cosell) and one that will turn viewrs away (e.g., Dennis Miller, Rush Limbaugh) from telecasts. It might not be a bad idea to dump Olbermann and let Patrick take the lead, getting opinions and insight from Harrison and Dungy.
Disregarding the "I like/hate this guy's politics", the group seemed kind of stiff. Not much chemistry at all between the four of them. That could be due to any one of a number of things: the host (is it Olbermann or Patrick?), two new guys to the television world (Dungy and Harrison), lack of direction from the group leader, lack of direction from the producer, lack of preparation or practice, etc. Individually they seem okay (Rodney in particular) but not as a group, in my opinion.
Olberman's great. He's terrific, bright and meticulous at his job.
Is Olberman talking politics on the football show? Are we grown-ups? Are we unaware that he and Dan Patrick are the cream of the croopp when it comes to sports commentary partners? I understand some of the birthers and death panel crowd would prefer Glenn Beck call these highlights, but you act as though the guy is somehow BAD at this and/or unqualified. He's one of the best EVER at this exact job. Let's keep our eye on the ball a bit.
Any show without Emmit Smith or Jerome Bettis struggling to form sentences is improved and at least watchable.. as far as pregame shows go. I can see what they were trying to do.. You have Patrick (veteran sports show guy), Olberman (sort of wild-card political guy), Dungy (golly gosh by the book nice guy), and Harrison (the wild-card speak his mind football guy). It's a good mix in theory...
At least we don't have to put up with anyone saying "you can't change the stripes of a leopard" anymore.
No, it's that he's a self absorbed, pompous creep who isn't nearly as smart nor as funny as he thinks he is.
So BF tell the viewing audiance how you really feel for a change.
Bingo! We have bingo!
