The Vikings broadcast was comical versus plain terrible. My wife was barely paying attention and she even noticed that Hopkins made the best play of the game and they did not interrupt the useless interview to acknowledge it.

Default Re: Channel 13 needs a glass stomach

I posted this in another thread, but I'll quote myself here because it fits the thread better. I wonder if anyone from the Texans bothers to look at this site?

Quote:
They have been a joke for years, and I have no idea why the Texans continue to affiliate with them. And it's not just because of the uplink issue Friday. That was just the cherry on top of the fail cake. The two announcers are terrible, and have been since the inception. Joel Myers (God love him) either is inept or has Alzheimer's. I've seen people at a speed dating seminar get more names correct. I kind of like Spencer on some weird level, but his cliche's got old about 8 years ago. I mean the man is literally a walking bundle of cliche's and adds no real analysis unless it includes a cliche. I somehow imagine that after his wife compliments him on his sexual performance, he says slow too, fast through, and I was just playing those deals and games baby.

I wish the ineptness just stopped there. The whole production stinks EVERY single game. The camera angles are bad, the cameramen lose the ball as much in one game as I see CBS do in a whole year. Camera work in general is bad. They play replays while there is live action going on. Do we get a replay of what we missed? Of course not - that would make too much sense. They replay unimportant things, and totally skip over the important stuff. They have stupid interviews every game that completely distract from the action on the field (this one may sadly be Texans directed). We didn't even have HD until recently. The whole freaking production from A to Z is one giant fail and this is every week for 10 years.

Enough is enough. Quit with the distracting interviews. If you must interview Jamie Roots, why not on a post game show? Hello. Mcfly. Anyone home? I sure hope the Texans are taking notice of this ****, because this is pathetic. They need to sign a new contract with another provider. 11 or 2. Give one of those two a chance. It literally could not be worse.

I didn't realize that Ch 13 didn't show the same broadcast as CBS.

Being outside of Houston, I always get the CBS feed during the regular season (when they show it) and I haven't had any complaints.

dude, completely different. We are talking about the preseason games locally produced and shown on Channel 13 with their own announcers. Absolutely has ZERO to do with regular season games on any channel which are produced at the network level.

ABC 13 has always sucked, imo

"Games and deals".....I mean, really? Who, in their football career or time following football have EVER heard that?

I was anxiously waiting for the "apple and a road map" the entire night.

It was in focus, though -- so they got that going for them... which is nice.

Default Re: Channel 13 needs a glass stomach

Was it just me or did tillman praise jean near the beginning of the game about plucking the ball out the air away from his body...and say something like that's a veteran move, he's ready to do big things...

Then later in the game, jean caught a ball with his body more then his hands and tillman lamented him saying that was a mistake and he still had a lot to learn...

Then later in the game, jean plucked another with his hands and tillman commented what a savy vet type move it was?

The whole damn broadcast was bad from top to bottom. "Games and deals" is just tillman speak for "The coaches have some kind of scheme thingy happening on this play, i'm not really sure what the hell it is."

Years ago on the other MB I would feel like I was always the only one complaining about the crappy,crappy game coverage of ABC. I mean it took three extra years just to deliver it in HD. Joel and Spencer are probably great guys but they can't call a game for nadda. You wanna vent tell em here.

Watching the replay on NFL network now and apparently Joel Dressen is back on the roster.

Did he say Lester jean was 'tenacious' and 'hobby on the spot' about 43 times? If so then it was definately spencer Tillman.
