    I really don't dislike Danielson so much, but he does something that drives me crazy. When a pass catch is going out of bounds he will look and comment on it forever! He does the same thing when a player fumbles and it's in question whether he is down. The way he comments is almost like one team is trying to get away with something. He does it in every game. I realize the guy is just doing his job, but it just irritates me. RTR!

    How about a "Bring Back Verne" movement. Just for this game....

    I'd love that, but I happen to be a big Verne fan. I think he captures a moment as well as anyone ever has by saying the least amount of words. He allows the viewer to watch and nudges emotions.
    Good example would be Eddie Jackson's punt return against Ole Miss last year.
    The play by play call was simply....."Eddie Jackson........Eddie Jackson.......Eddie Jackson......."
    Most play by play guys would have been, "Jackson takes it the twenty, he's to the 35, the 50, the 40!, the 30!, the 20! the 10! Touchdown!!!!"
    Well duh. We're watching the game on television so why make it a radio broadcast??
    Regardless, I like Nessler and Danielson as well. Every Ole Miss, MSU or LSU fan I know accuses him of being beyond Pro-Bama.
    He certainly doesn't seem to be anti-Tide to me.

    Recognizing that Eli is paid to be a homer and that the guys on the networks cannot be is so often overlooked.

    Even with Greg, though he might be trying too hard not to be a homer, I listened to the same game as everyone else and if you listened to hear Greg talk about how much he loves Bama and how great Bama is the whole game then you were not going to hear what you wanted to hear.

    As well, these guys aren't paid to talk about the game for Bama fans, but for college football fans. So, of course when Gary talks about the kick six we get sick of it, but the average fan doesn't hear it the same way we do.

    And we can remember how great Keith Jackson was, but that's comparing apples to oranges. We only got a few games a year in those days and I always thought he was very "pro-Bama" as much as he could be...probably because he respected coach Bryant so much.

    Basically, these guys aren't paid to tell us how great we are especially in games when we are stinking in up the way we've done the last couples of games.

    I think his call on the AJ to TJ screen pass was one of the most exciting I've ever heard!!! I loved Verne.

    Yes, Gary is really annoying. He used to have really nothing good to say about Bama when he would call one of our games. But I've noticed the last 2 seasons or so, Gary has actually complimented us, and has gotten better at not "Bama hating". I don't know why, but he has. The first time I heard him compliment us, I told my wife to go get me an aspirin, I was going to have a heart attack. He mentions things in games sometimes that we would all like him NOT to mention and he does it over and over again, but, and that's a relatively big "but"... I gotta admit as annoying as the man is at times, he knows the game of football. I've heard him, as I'm sure you have before , call a play before we do it, and BAM we run it. So, I agree he's annoying at times, but his football IQ is right up there with the best.

    Vegas has set the over/under on the number of times Gary will mention the 2013 iron bowl at 42,127. I took the over.

    Gary + Verne = Insufferable
    Gary - Verne = Tolerable

    I know some people love Verne but I completely agree.

    agree

    Tell you what. I will listen to Gary Danielson over Beth Mowens any day if the week.
