    I just had to.

    NEVER have I ever muted a telecast, as being OCD as I am I need to have some sound going on when watching the game.

    But my God, it was as if I was listening to a Baltimore broadcast.

    Didn't put it back on until we regained the lead for obvious reasons.

    I'm a Bucs fan and muted the broadcast. The ESPN crew was particularly annoying tonight - they're annoying every night, but tonight was awful.

    The cheerleading in the booth was disgusting.

    I hope Shula choked on one of his dried up nutrifast brownies watching that last drive LOL

    I despise Kornhole to start with. And it's obvious he thinks he's witty and charming. What a loser. What is ESPN thinking? I think we all need to email ESPN at just how much we despise them.

    Lobel made a bunch of remarks about the broadcast on the 5th Quarter. Paraphrasing: "I usually don't say this, but it was awful." Zolak said something along the lines of the booth always being awful. It was pretty funny.

    As I said I’ve never even thought of muting a game before, being as I feel I’m taking away a huge part of watching a televised football game.

    But there was just no way I could take it anymore. As said, it was basically a god damn booth of cheerleaders tonight.

    That’ll be our last ESPN game broadcast of the season though.

    Funny how ESPN plays it’s little games.

    The Colts almost show how resilient they are against the hyped up Chargers on the road and are praised as Gods.

    The Patriots DO show how resilient they are against a ridiculously hyped up Baltimore and are given “Let off the hook” treatment.

    As soon as Shula showed up, I turned to the WBCN radio broadcast, but it was ahead of the TV action and I couldn't deal with it. I turned it back and listened to the lunacy. At least there are no more MNF games for the Pats.

    Once Don Shula entered the booth I muted and instead talked with my friends instead of listen to the announcing.

    I also muted the TV, at the end of the 1st quarter.

    Simply the most unprofessional, clownish, cheerleading national broadcast I have ever heard.

    Kornhole is an ass-hole. He is living proof why I hate New Yorkers.

    I muted it. At one point, while muted, I saw Shula joking around in the booth after Baltimore's great punt return. Then three plays later Boller throws that horrible INT and Shula's demeanor changes big time. So I unmuted to hear what he said. He was bashing Boller for the bad play and rightly so. Kinda weird rurn of events.

    BTW, this team is not boring!

    I did... could not stand Kornhole from the beginning of the third quarter on.

    I put on Gil and Gino even though they were 8 or more seconds ahead of the ESPN feed.

    Gil blew the Gaffney touchdown call big time... couldn't see Jab in the corner of the endzone and said '...and Brady just throws it away'... Gino had to jump in and say 'Touchdown'. Total botch by Gil.

    I turned the sound off mine as well.

    I've never done that before. I don't like watching in a bar because you can't get the sound there. But this was just excruciating. I watched the whole second half in silence. (Well, there was me screaming and yelling, but that's another story.)

    Muted it after Kornhole said "This may be the game the Patriots finally lose" for the 100th time. Also didn't want to hear Shula run his mouth. Tirico (sp) and Jaws aren't bad but Kornhole has to go.

    I have NEVER muted a game before, but I had to, listening to those numbskulls RUINED the game for me, so I hit MUTE and just followed along in the game threads.

    I did not mute it, but i am starting to think i should have when Shula was in the booth. Im sure he is not patting anyone on the back right now. The radio brodcasters are much better.

    My Jersey:

    When the broadcast crew started up at the beginning of the game, I was ready. Once Kornholio's desire for the Patriots to lose this game for historic purposes on the last ESPN Patriots' broadcast of the season became palpable, I started playing Joe Bonamassa ( Blues Deluxe CD loud!!!) in place of the geeks on ESPN. At the beginning of the 3rd quarter when Shula came on to provide "unadulterated objectivity" through the eyes of an obsessed coach trying to will his importance into today's game, I came to the conclusion that Bonamassa is one of the best guitarists I've ever heard (saw him live in Baltimore two weeks ago), and the Patriots were not going to lose this game.

    As a result, I was more in tune with this game than any previously close game like the Eagles, Colts, or Dallas. Hey, cosmic shyte happens! But the best barometer was my son returning from attending the game with the observation that in the last 7:00 minutes, it appeared that the Ravens became scared and tight. He said it was visibly obvious, as they imploded with foolish penalties, missed assignments, and the inability to play for the full sixty minutes.

    Guess they blew it in the face of a team perceived to be superior . . .

    and that's all it took to give up the lead and the game.

    Funny how that happens with the Patriots.

    As soon as they announced that Shula would be in the booth in the 3rd qtr, I planned on muting it out. Which I did for his entire commentary period. I didn't realize how lonnggggggg he'd be in the booth...sickening!:cool:

    I'm so sick of Kornheiser, just looking at him make me nausious. The only word I can thing of to describe my feelings is, Geek, wimp, wannabe, kiss**s, woman-like...ok, I know, that's more than one word. During one of the games earlier in the year, Tony Kornholer discussed Brady's good looks in a manner that made me very uncomfortable. It was as if he was coming out of the closet on air. Football is not the place for such BS.
