    By the guy in a blue suit (who looks like a civil war general) doing all the ads for the NFL network?

    The first few times it was interesting to watch -- in an uncomfortable sort of way. Now it's just creepy..

    I hardly deem this as "texans talk forum" material but I do agree with you in a major way.

    I hate that guy.

    Carry on...

    He's a bad knockoff of the Ron Burgundy character, in Anchor Man, played by Will Ferrell.

    And yes, it's way overdone. It's almost as bad as those sappy cell phone commercials where the mom and the daughter are blubbering and crying because they got such a great deal on a cell phone (I think it aired around Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday shopping time...every freaking commercial break during Sunday football. $#%@!)

    I think the guy in the blue suit in those new NFL commercials is the formerly creepy Burger King mascot guy that was recently kicked to the curb by BK. If you look hard you can see the resemblance. How does this guy keep getting work and what does Drew Rosenhaus have on the commish anyway? As an aside, Drew Rosenhaus is by far the creepiest guy pictured though...hands down.

    I guess I'm the only one that thinks this guy is AWESOME! I love the beard and I think the outfit is funny as hell. Everytime those commercials come on, I end up laughing. My wife just looks at me and smirks. I just say, "man, that guy is awesome!". LOL. She just rolls her eyes at me and goes back to reading.

    "It's serious fun!"

    I agree with OP. It wasn't that funny to begin with, and the thought of having to suffer through these all season is demoralizing. :gun:

    I can't stand that guy and whomever put him there should be fired. He comes across as some dork that doesn't know a thing about football.

    Now the Eli / Ware commercial is brilliant where the guy doesn't want his son to become a Cowboys fan.

    You're not the only one. I was starting to think that I'm crazy since everyone hated it. I think it's funny as hell.

    If it's widely loved, or widely hated, it gets talked about. Either way whoever created it did their job well.

    I've basically learned that whether it's commercials, or talk show hosts, if I'm talking about how much I hate them, they have pretty much achieved their objective.

    Completely agree.

    I don't think it's very funny and the fact that they play the commercial so often makes it even less funny. Yes he's annoying.

    Embrace modern technology. They created the DVR and fast forward for us to avoid those annoying commercial things. I haven't watched a commercial in a long, long time.

    I don't like it either! Couldn't believe it was a commercial for the NFL when I first saw it! ST*pid and very immature! JMO!
