    Musberger - is there anyone who actually likes him? How is this guy still on TV?
    Deckerhoff
    Mike Mayock - good info, but his voice is annoying
    Berman
    Troy Aikman - you could do a drinking game with every time he says "clearly"

    Oh I agree...different strokes. I think Mick just connects people my age with the program...and our homeland. I love where I live here in Coastal NC...my wife (and now our kids of course) are from here....but I still love those sounds of home.

    I'll miss him someday.

    Excellent lists on both counts.
    I love Sean McDonough as well.

    The female commentator that works some college football games. She tries to lower her voice & it sounds like a 10-year old boy trying to sound grown up.

    Sean McDounagh is the most boring guy ever. Jesse talks way too much!

    McDonough goes in the Gator hall of fame for his 1997 "Green's behind the defense!!!!" call.

    Sean McDonough---much better than lundquist. CBS should have never fired him.

    At the end of the day, I get that. I really do. The main thing that bugs me is Liam's lame attempts at humor that usually involve lampooning the abilities of athletes who have had a bad week.

    Neither they nor anyone they brought onto the show ever passed up an opportunity to shrug off Tim Tebow as someone "This League"TM can do without

    Best thing about the show is Brian Billick's weekly call-in. I miss his post-game press conferences. I'm sure Roger Goodell does not.

    Everyone hates everyone.

    Can you guys list who you actually like? Some of these are mind-boggling picks.

    Someone said Marv Albert and Steve Kerr suck? Would you rather listen to Reggie Miller, or Jeff Van Gundy?

    I honestly can't think of an NFL analyst that I like. They are all so predictable in hyping certain players when they make a decent play.

    Danielson and Joe Morgan are O.K. McCarver is O.K. too. Musberger is worse than Cosell. At least Cosell knew when to step away.

    As of last night, Bob Costas is another I can't stand. Keep politics out of sports. Apparently this only applies to Rush Limbaugh.

    Vin Scully. The man paints a masterpiece with his words. I could truly listen to his broadcast of a game without watching.

    I used to love Harry Kalas. Great voice and he did the VO for several of the Gator football highlight tapes back in the 90s.

    Kind of fitting that he died in the press box before a Phillies game.

    Scot Brantley always made gator games near torture, wasn't sorry when he left.

    Marty and Thom Brennamen are awful,as a Reds fan it's not fun.
