Default ABC 13 Preseason broadcasts are sucking

Whats up w/this station and the lack of quality for our preseason games?

- Graphics on the screen were fuzzy most of the time.
- Before many plays they wouldn't show the down and distance
- No line of scrimmage and first down line on screen for a lot of the game.
- Joel Myers(?) called #94 'Antwaun' Smith and then after that said that Antwaun Molden was in on some coverage! Dude didn't even play! LOL
- Spencer Tillman said 'Johnny on the spot' and 'he needs to run lower to the ground' and 'center of gravity' waaay too many times.


I don't remember it being this sub-par last year.

Joel Myers rocks. "Check that," he is terrible.

And in the 4th quarter Myers says,"with touchdowns by David Anderson and Andre Johnson."
He even mixes up AD and AJ after 2 seasons.

The pre season games on ABC 13 are like an amateur comedy hour that lasts far too long.

The quality of the broadcast and the clowns they have in the booth are an embarrassment to this city and its Texans fans. We deserve better.

The NFL.com highlights showed the KC feed last week. The quality was much, much better.

Default Re: ABC 13 Preseason broadcasts are sucking

There's no doubt about it. 13 is dropping the ball on this and I wonder if it wouldn't be a good idea to get together and let the Texans know we're not happy with this. They probably already see what we see but just to be sure I think it's letter writing time. I've no doubt they have a contract or something that precludes them just kicking 13 to the curb but maybe they don't or maybe they could simply apply a little pressure and push them to do a better job. Our broadcasts stink right now. It's bad enough with preseason that you get lousy football but does it have to be broadcast in manner that would embarrass XFL teams too?

Disgusting quality and production value for these games. Channel 13 should be embarrassed as hell. I always record the games I go to but didn't knowing that Ch. 13 would be sending in a NON-HD crap broadcast. I have set to record the HD broadcast on NFLN which will be the Saints broadcast.

Totally inexcusable. I think we are the ONLY TEAM in the NFL with NON-HD preseason broadcasts.

I remember seeing it on a play that was challenged. It was about 3 yards off though.

Default Re: ABC 13 Preseason broadcasts are sucking

The worst one all night was a pressure/knockdown of the QB by Shaun Cody. Myers misread Cody's jersey number as 75 (it's actually #95) and gave credit for the hit to Stanley McClover. McClover was waived this past week. Spencer acknowledged the hit was by Cody, but I never heard the McClover reference corrected. Perhaps they decided there was no way to do it without making Myers look like a buffoon.

Myers is horrible. He can't get any names right and he just doesn't know what he is saying half the time. Time to replace him! I really don't pay attention to him anymore, since he makes so many mistakes during the broadcast, but I am tempted to go back and listen, so I can list the many examples. I catch them as he is saying them, but do not waste the memory space!

It is bad!

Was it this sub-par last year??
i read that they are having technical problems. what a load of c**p. they were just too cheap to hire an HD-enabled camera crew/production booth. Now that they have gotten lots of complaints they claim they are looking into it and should have it ready for next year. give me an f'ing break.

this week, they will finally be shot in HD and we won't have to live through that. going back and watching last nights game on TV was tough.

My favorite Myers moment so far (aside from the McClover/Cody debacle) was last week when he referred to fantasy football as "rotisserie football". That was hysterical.
