    Ditto here too.
    Some times if I'm in a lighter side of sports mood I can laugh with ambar as she's giggling the moment she starts to speak.

    But if I'm into cowboys talk more seriously and have to hear her babble and bring nothing new or interesting points to the table, that's when I'm trying to ignore her and can't wait til she stops yapping.

    But the good thing is she's not overpowering and egotistical, we may hear her 2 to 3 times the whole segment as it seems she wants the fellas to be the voice and headliners and she has no problem waiting in line.

    I never get anything intriguing from her but since shes reserved for the most part, I can live and tolerate her presence and I think having an attractive woman as appeal and a womans presence must play big and important for the show(s)
    Ditto with Lindsey Draper and Taylor (cover 4 show?)

    But I always thought if they did want a lady who knows football Christy scales might be the best one locally out there, but maybe she's exclusively to cowboys radio only.

    fact is: if she is 500lb no one will hire her no matter what she knows.

    I don't like it either, and I am Hispanic.

    Here (New Mexico) Spaniard is the term used for somebody from Spain. Spanish means you have ancestry that, at some point, was descendant from Spain. Now, I don't know that it's that way everywhere but I know that this is how it's viewed in my area.

    Well, I do, so to each their own. BTW, I'm Hispanic too. What do you not like about it? The last guy I asked said they don't like the way she rolls her "Rs". Which I took to be a better answer than her voice is too deep, That was just dumb.

    "Spanish" is taught in schools in Texas and it's got nothing to do with Spain. I'm pretty sure the rest of the United States calls it the same. Ambar speaks Spanish. It's her first language. She learned it in the Dominican Republic where they speak Spanish. She is Dominican. What are you confused about?

    First of all, I don't really agree that she is all that knowledgeable about the game. I agree with those who say that there are many out there who are more knowledgeable but honestly, if I look at it objectively and put all of the existential BS aside, I feel as if a person who is in a profession should actually work at the craft. It's like a broadcasting crew. You have the Pros who did the work to become a Broadcaster, those are the play by play guys and then you have the analysts. Those guys are often former players or coaches, people who came up around the game and actually know the game. She is neither. This is who Ambar Garcia was, before she landed this gig.

    I don't say that it's her fault that she got the gig and I don't hold that against her but it also doesn't mean I think she is very good at what she does. She should at least learn to become a better speaker. I mean, that's what she does for a living and a majority of that is English. Learn your craft. There are a lot of people out there who have put in the work to land a job like that. Do the work.

    I am not, it is you who are confused. You just explained what I said earlier. Go read it again.

    That just goes to show everyone has to start somewhere. She has done good for herself. I'm happy for her.

    I'm confused? No, you are confused. I explained what you just explain before you explained it then I explained it again because you looked confused.

    What’s so hard to understand here? Spanish refers to people from Spain and/or the country itself.

    Spanish is also a language spoken by many countries yet not only in Spain

    It also goes to show that she is not knowledgeable at the profession. What is the message here? Work hard and some day you can get your dream job or is it that if you are pretty enough, that job will be yours? It is what it is but the later, that I don't like so much. As a Father of two girls, it's not the message I would want to send. Don't get me wrong, my girls are both very attractive, that's not coming from a Father of his kids, that's coming from a Father who has spent countless nights running off countless idiots from the house. The problem is that it's the wrong message because looks fade, the work, you will always have that. She doesn't know the game and I don't see how that really helps women or even Hispanics, to be honest.

    I appreciate that you see it the way you do but I see it completely differently. She really did very little to get the job, other then know how to speak Spanish and look good. There are Hispanics out there who have been fans their whole lives, who know the game much better and who have done a lot more work to be qualified for a job like that. I'd be more happy to see one of them get a shot because the message I sent to my kids was "Work Hard For What You Want It Will Pay Off."

    We see it differently.

    Stop already. First of all, I wasn't even speaking to you when I made that post. You have no idea what you are talking about. This entire discussion is already dumber for having engaged in this Abbott and Costello, Who's On Third, diatribe.

    I guess that's the part that is confusing for some. See, here, Spanish are used to refer to people who are of Spaniard decent. I.E., ancestors who at some point, came from Spain. People who are actually from Spain are referred to as Spaniards here. Now, that's a little more old fashioned but that's the way it has been for a long time. That's kind of the discrepancy, I guess.

    Doesn't really matter, she speak Spanish and that's the thing that I think is central to the discussion.

    You don't even know her. You obviously aren't familiar with her work now. She does a good job. You have no idea how hard she has worked. From one Hispanic to another. You should not be attacking her.

    I thought this was a public forum for all to discuss. I wasn't aware it included your private conversations. Oh wait, it is a public forum and your conversations aren't private. You need to lighten up brother. You are far too serious around here. I was just playing with you, man.

    Yes, I am. I've listen to her several times. I posted here work experience, show me where she worked hard in a career field such as the one she is currently employed in prior to being hired with the Cowboys. I mean, it's there in black and white. You want to debate that, thats fine with me but it's there and there is not one job or any education that suggests she was hired for anything other then the reasons I stated.

    You like here, that's fine. I don't think she's very good. I would think this would be the end of it.

    It is. If you can find somebody to discuss this with, have at it. I'm not your Brother and you are nobody to tell me what I should or should not do. It's a public board, go be public with somebody else.
