Re: Is anyone else tired of Chris Berman?
I don't mind him so much during NFL Countdown and Prime Time. His is knowledgeable and passionate about football - even though his borrowed catchphrases ("he could go all the way") get tiresome.
His Sportscenter appearances is where I have a major problem with him. He has totally ruined The Plays Of The Week segment, which used to be very entertaining with Olberman/Patrick. Last week, the death of Giants owner Wellington Mara was #6! Huh? This week's "plays" were even more excrutiating. Dan Marino receiving his ring of honor from the Dolphins was in the top in the top five. To top it off he threw in a running back from Brown who scored four touchdowns. Why is this significant? Brown University is the alma mater of one Chris Berman. It doesn't matter that 99.5% of the audience doesn't care what he's talking about. he'll tell us anyway.
It's just awful how he just has free rein to do whatever he wants. What he's doing is alienating intelligent sports viewers, and it's nice to see I'm not alone in my distaste for "Boomer." Thanks for starting the thread Wily Mo. You made my day!!
