I think they are good announcers. Sometimes when they're discussing a replay or penalty or something they come up with head-scratching conclusions. They might sloppily focus on fitting the action into some lame narrative, but all announcers do that now. Who cares.

If you want someone truly horrible, try watching a college basketball game called by Jim Calhoun. I literally shut the Badgers game off after 5 minutes last night because I couldn't tolerate his inane, incomprehensible babbling. It's like if you started with Bill Walton and got him totally drunk and punched him in the head a bunch of times you end up with Calhoun.

Maybe Michaels and Collinsworth, but I feel like Collinsworth (especially the last year or so) has kind of morphed into Jon Gruden. The other teams besides Buck & Aikman on FOX aren't very good -- Burkhardt & Lynch are their B team. They're okay, but I still prefer Buck & Aikman over them. The rest of the crews on FOX are pretty bad. Eagle & Fouts on CBS are good, but likewise, they have the same sort of issue over there.

The rap that Buck gets from all sorts of teams' fans is pretty remarkable. He's not an announcing GOAT, but he's really solid, especially this day in age.


I like Buck & Aikman also. To me Troy is right there with Collinsworth as the best color announcer in football.

The people who say these guys are biased are likely the same people in game threads who constantly complain that the other team is holding, but never say the same thing about their team. Just a bunch of idiots.

I actually think Ian Eagle is the best guy CBS has but I'm really glad the Packers are an NFC team because CBS in general is horrible.

Agreed. I love Lambeau, it's a great place to watch a game, great history, small town yada yada but I get tired of hearing about it.

It's only the casual fans that don't like them. All the fat, old white ladies who favorite player is Donald Driver because he was on Dancing With the Stars. They can all go to hell. Along with the old season ticket holders at Lambeau that yell and get security when you stand and cheer loudly at games.

I actually think CBS is a much stronger lineup than FOX. Eagle/Fouts is probably my favorite crew in the league, Buck/Aikman being my #2. I mean CBS has Harlan/Gannon as their #4 team, compared to Chris Myers and Ronde Barber on FOX. That's not even a fair comparison.

Yeah I do think CBS is solid down the list. Maybe Simms is annoying, but basically after the #2 team on FOX you get comically bad idiots that barely understand the game like Myers and Stockton.

I just don't like them and I have no real reason. They just rub me the wrong way but that might be because I love our local radio guys in Wayne and Larry. They make me feel warm and fuzzy. But yeah this is stupid and doesn't even make sense. I really hate Buck though again just don't like the guy. Its not like he is super terrible or has even a slight bias. To me listening to the locals makes it more fun because its like they genuinely feel as you do good or bad. I like my announcers biased in the Packs favor because you know what I am biased.
Midds, Brodog and Giannis has made Bucks basketball fun again. :D The future is bright.(without Kidd there)

Buck saying the Momentum has swung to Dallas a couple times was annoying, one time we were up 15 I think.

Indeed, embarrassing.

Wasn't the time we were up 15 because Rodgers threw the INT? That was a pretty huge momentum swing. Driving in a position to get at least 3 and make it a 3 score game to turning it over and the Cowboys having possession around midfield.

I'm not a fan of either Buck or Aikman, but the people that scream overt bias are the people that talk about the Packers on Facebook instead of RealGM.

Yeah going from a possible 3 score lead to 1 score lead would have been huge" momentum builder for Dallas.

I watch almost every game and never understood the hate some fans have towards Buck and Aikman. I much prefer listening to them than Madden who constantly raved about Farve. Now that was annoying.
