Default Football Pet Peeves

Obviously we all love football here, but there are some things that are a little annoying.

#1 When radio announcers have to call every line that the ball carrier crosses. Someone breaks loose, and all of a sudden, "hes at the thirty, thirty five, forty, forty five, fifty, forty five, forty, thirty five..." Ok, we get the point, he's running. Some announcers dont feel a 7 yard TD run is long anough so they have to say "he's inside the five, four, three, two, one, Touchdown!!"

#2 The use of the word "healthy". Just because someone is missing a game with a sprained ankle doesn't mean he is unhealthy, IMO. The broadcasters will tell you the some team will be better when so and so is back healthy. Or they were lucky to stay healthy this year. When I think of someone who is unhealthy, I think of a raging alcoholic, drug user, or maybe someone with a fatal disease. I wish they would think of another word to use.

As you can tell I'm getting restless waiting for the season to start.

1... when the announcers dont know the starting players' names

2... players running 1/2 way down the field to celebrate after making a routine tackle (or something similar)

1. The price of beer and peanuts at the football game.

2. That the cheerleaders don't come visit me during the game.


Besides that, I love everything about football.......and actually, #2 isn't too bad because with my binoculars, I can pretend that they are that close to me.

1. Announcers who use a individual player to describe types of players,
ie: "You have your John Elways and your Brett Farves."

2. The over-used term "class act". This term is only used in sports.
ie: "He's a class act." or "Coach Whistle Britches is a class act."

3. When announcers say, "There's no love loss between these two teams." What does that mean?

the funny thing is when i read #1 i heard madden's voice in my head.

1-celebriting, players get paid to make plays, dont go stripping naked down the field like you never scored before. act like you are SUPPOSE to score.
2-when the 'supposed' home team announcers dog the home team.
3- the beer commericals for reminding me to keep drinking.

What if they are a corner that has never scored, not even in college, and brings one to the house in the NFL??? They havent scored before....

I like the celebrations, TO and the Sharpie, Horn and the Phone, Chad Johnson and the sign. Even the clips of 'Billy White Shoes' are fun to watch...

1. When announcers talk more about themselves than the game.
2. when offensive players fall down like little punks instead of actually trying to break a tackle.
3. All the stupid rules that over protect the QBs.
4 Penalties for hitting people to hard.
5 penalties for doind a little TD dance when they score a TD.
6 Players whining for the ball, get open damn it.
7 Mel Kiper knowing every thing about all 30 jillion players in the draft, get a life.
8 When announcers overstate the obviouse.
9 whoever thought it would be a good idea to put matt stevens on a football field
