    I think Blackledge actually asked him what the heck he was talking about, there is a game going on, lol.

    I can't remember if that was before or after they interviewed some player on the US Women's soccer team for 5 solid minutes about the upcoming World Cup qualifiers in half a year, all the while the game was being played in the background.

What I want is someone telling me what is happening in the game that may not be obvious to me at the time, but without spin to make it seem "more interesting" or to make me want to stay tuned, because "you never know". And without talking to me as if I had never watched or played the game before.

    Guys like Eli Gold tell the story of the game without all of that garbage. They describe the game without trying to turn it into some dramatic battle from ancient times gone by.

    And these guys don't every just let the game speak for itself. The older generation knew that sometimes you just needed to shut up and let the viewers experience the game. This generation of analysts really think that we have tuned in to hear their voices or that we cannot possibly understand what is happening on the field if they don't explain it for us (and half the time they get it wrong, so).

    The mute button usually works best for me. If something odd happens, I turn on the sound until I am sure that I understand what is happening, then I mute again.

    I tried listening to GMac Saturday night - gag. The second half was muted again.

    I was trying to stream a game once and it was weird because it had all the crowd noise but it only showed the game, including timeouts- there were no cutaways or commentary at all. I thought they had screwed up the feed or something but it turns out ESPN actually streams an alternative broadcast with zero production other than the cameras and crowd noise. It was actually really enjoyable and I found that the game seemed much less stressful.

    Yah, he did - IIRC it was overtime, not like a blowout that people weren't interested in...

    LOL!! You could read a novel during most soccer games without missing anything meaningful on the field!

    I'll take a CBS 3:30 eastern time game over a night game every Saturday especially when I have tickets to the game and it is in Tuscaloosa. That 82 drive back to Prattville is not fun at night, usually closest hotel I can find.

    Yes, it is the control center version I think. I remember watching one of the National championships that way. It was really nice.

    As much as people fuss about Danielson, I actually think he's one of the best - at least among those currently working.

    I don't particularly care that he usually cheers some for our opponents, but my sense is that he just wants to see a good game, not that he has any particular bias against us. A very DIFFERENT "Sense" than I got from Herbstreit during his three hour Clempson Love-Fest during the NC game last January.

    Danielson probably has a broader and deeper knowledge of the game than anyone else announcing these days.

    To add fuel to the Danielson Hate fire. He was on a CBS Sports talk radio show this morning and made the following statement:

    "If Alabama UPSETS Auburn and wins out they are automatically in the playoff."

    What's the spread for the Iron Bowl?
    I can't imagine Bama or the Barn losing this weekend, so I doubt there will be much movement on the spread between now and game time.
    Challenge your preconceptions, or they will surely challenge you.

    Alabama -3.5, but almost every analyst is picking Auburn. Alabama has been declared dead and buried by the media once again.
