    I feel when there is the 4pm Sunday Fox game with those 2, there have been more losses than wins. I think they are bad luck.

    With the exception of Nance and Simms, I couldn't care less who's calling our game. I don't understand how some people get so caught up in the commentary. Or if it's so intolerable, why not just mute the TV?

    I think Joe Buck should stick to Baseball. That said, the fellow who is opposite of Gruden on ESPN Monday Night Football is a walking talking clown car.

    The hate for broadcasters always makes me laugh. Every fan of every team thinks at least one broadcaster is biased against their team. Sure some of them are more annoying than others, but the same can be said about people in every profession. Aikman and Buck are the #1 team at Fox, so clearly there are more viewers that don't hate them, than there are viewers that can't stand them.

    I for one don't get the hate of these two. Buck has actually calmed down for me from a few years back when he seemed very self righteous, like his overreaction to Randy Moss "mooning" the GB crowd. Aikman actually is pretty good to me. He just isn't a homer they way the Cowboys fans want him to be. He calls the game the way he sees it and he tries to be pretty fair.

    I miss the drunk/old Summerall. "Beg your pardon". How many times did he utter that phrase over his last few years on the air? Summerall: "That's going to bring up 4th and long". Fans of that team everywhere screaming: "WHAT!", and then Summerall: "Beg your pardon, it's 2nd down and 2". It happened like 10 times a game, and it always made me laugh. I thought Madden was the best, but I remember people saying they couldn't stand him either. Can't ever make everyone happy I guess.

    My recommendation to those offended Packer fans is quite simple, don't watch the game.

    Tbh, I like him too just not his voice as much ut his content is top notch. He'll throw a random one in there that makes ya look around the room, but his football knowledge/observations comes through pretty on the spot. His aloof type of personality doesn't bother me like some have given em grief for.

    Buck said recently he's thinking about walking away in a couple years. They should give that spot to Gus Johnson - best sports announcer on television bar none.

    Simms is the very worst. I'll take one of the "C" teams over Simms/Nance.

    I do mute the game when Simms is the announcer. I just un-mute when the refs are announcing the penalties.

    Yes, content wise Collinsworth is decent but his voice is not a good one for that job.

    I'll take Summerall even when drunk and senile over other play by play guys.

    I get that Buck needs to avoid giving opinions and just stick to play-by-play, but I don't get the level of hate for Aikman/Buck. They are better than a lot of the other options.

    The play-by-play guy with Gruden is more annoying to me than Buck.

    Aikman is way better than Phil Simms.

    People are so ridiculously oversensitive...I've never heard bias out of these two in any direction, at all....People just need to grow up. They are announcers...geez

    Buck and Aikman are just boring. I don't get how anyone can be that mad at them, or feel any strong feeling about them either way.

    I don't know that Phil Simms was always THIS bad, but he sure does stink now. He's borderline incoherent at times. My vague recollection was that he was at least tolerable 5 years ago or so.
