Let me get one thing straight, I hate Chris Berman as a play-by-play guy. He’s terrible. It’s like he makes his living by trying to be bigger than whatever event you happen to be watching. He gets in the way of a broadcast, and becomes extremely distracting. Also he has become such a cliché. It’s so bad that every year at the draft we look for “Berman’s Boys” these guys may not be very good but as long as they can make one play during the regular season, and they have a name that rhymes with another word or can be made into a sentence they will be on the All-Berman All-Rookie Team. I’d much rather have a bumbling John Madden out there talking about nothing except turkey and meat balls than Berman doing his best to come up with a phrase that works like Shawn “I wouldn’t want to” Marry-“That”-man. If you’re going to do play-by-play just don’t get in my way. There are a lot of people in the world that don’t irritate me, so why are Berman and Stephan A. Smith still on my TV?
