    No, I don't mean Wolfley and company. Wolfley and company are made to look like the greatest broadcasters of all time by these dupes..

    I am talking about the Seattle home broadcasters (no, I don't know their names and don't care if I ever learn them).

    On the way home from Sonora CA I had to listen to the last game on Sirius. After missing most of the first Q we finally found the broadcast up among the comedy channels (was that a Sirius joke ?).

    It was the Seattle home broadcast so it was their local guys, had we found the away broadcast, we would have heard Wolfley and company, but were afraid to leave once we found the game.

    These guys pooh, poohed every single penalty against the Seahawks. EVERY SINGLE ONE was, according to them, terrible officiating and an outrage to the game. EVERY SINGLE penalty, ALL OF THEM. It was actually quite humorous, especially when they would announce very dryly, a penalty against the Cards, as if, of course, the officials had to call that blatant disregard for the rules.

    The other odd thing, I never liked Wolfley's style or lack thereof, but if the opposing team moved the ball, he at least would describe the whole thing and even compliment the opposing O, if warranted.

    These Seattle toads would barely mention a Card O play. It would be, Stanton in shotgun, handoff to Williams, drive right.. 7 yards and then follow it up with a 2 minute dialogue on what the Hags defense did, how their shift was brilliant, but someone tripped or they probably would have tackled for a loss and suddenly, they are saying "Stanton in shotgun, moving left, pass to 11, 17 yards" and then spend 2 minutes explaining how the hags very, nearly sacked Stanton and how the coverage was ALMOST perfect and how the Hags really seemed to finally be picking it up (after a 17 yard loss).

    It was very difficult to tell what the Card O was doing, because they only mentioned (briefly) name and yards and that's it. Then their endless monolog on how close the Hags were to really controlling that play (where they just lost 5, 12, 17, 22 yards... take your pick).

    I have new respect for Wolfley and company. you guys are rock stars compared to those sad sacks in Seattle (who also mentioned the "12s" in at least every second sentence.

    You have no idea my joy when hearing them announce (gleefully, knowing this game was won) "the ball is snapped, the kick is up annnnddd ... (quietly)... he missed" lol times 1 googol....

    1 of my favorite Card moments ever (even if passing north LA on the 210 at the time. Made the rest of the drive to AZ very enjoyable.

    If you don't know Larry's name you probably shouldn't be in the booth. Period.

    I listened to the Niners radio team call the 2015 Cards at Niners game. They too seemed to take offense at every penalty called against SF. I wonder if some clubs feel their fanbases prefer a homer call for the radio broadcast. Personally, I prefer professionalism.

    I would have loved to hear those guys whine. I genuinely dislike everything about the hags and their fans. To hear their whiny broadcasters deal with that loss.. awesome.

    I'm amazed at how much better Dave Pasch is on TV than on radio. On radio, the play-by-play guy has to call the game in such a way as to allow the listener to visualize what's going on. Guys like former Raiders/Warriors/A's announcer Bill King were masters at this. Pasch barely lets you know what's going on, there's just no detail, no color. On TV, he's great. Totally different situation since we are seeing the action with our own eyes. He's smooth, competent, has a great voice, and is one of my faves on TV. On radio, far from it. Different skill sets.

    When the late Frank Gifford couldn't remember the first name of any player, his policy was to call all of them: "Ron."

    I had the great pleasure of being raised on listening to two of the greatest ever: Vin Scully and Dick Enberg. After them, it is hard to listen to most others, especially other team's. The worst I can think of at the moment are Yankee announcers. So repetitious with their catch phrases, sort of like the deceased Padres announcer, Jerry Coleman. Great human being but enough already with, "Oh boy, you can hang a star on that one."

    When I lived in the Central Valley I would get Raiders radio broadcasts. Those guys were the absolute worst.

    Yankees are pretty poor there is no doubt about that.


    I get to listen to Mike Lange, when I listen to Pittsburgh Penguins games on the radio, he is awesome. His catch phrases are a little bit much but his play by play is great.

    My worst combo is Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. I cannot stand the Cowboys but Aikman does not go on and on about them by choice and actually calls a solid game... I freaking hate Joe Buck, he eggs Aikman on about the Cowboys every second sentence where one can tell even Aikman gets irritated with his fanboy approach
