It's great that the conflict between Versus, Comcast and DirecTV has been settled. Us DirecTV subscribers can now view Versus programming. It was in time for this 2010 seasons' hockey playoffs. Great timing. However...
Last night's (Wednesday, April 14, 2010) programming started out GREAT. “Doc” Emrick was the play-by-play announcer for the Pittsburgh V Ottawa game. Surprising game result(Penguins lost),but the announcing was simply superb.
Then, the Detroit Red Wings V Phoenix Coyotes game is getting ready to broadcast. It's going to be a great series, no doubt about it. Everything is in place and I settle in. The game starts...and so does the incessant jaw-flapping by the color announcer.
The game was a conversation between the two announcers with the game being a second-hand show. How tiring and so very...very....very...disappointing.
I pray to God this does not go on for the entire series. If the play-by-play announcer was left to do his job, he could provide an entertaining show.
VERSUS COLOR ANNOUNCERS.....Please, stop talking and wrecking our viewing pleasure. We are trying to watch our beloved hockey playoffs, not listen to your incessant verbiage. It is the hockey game that matters, not what you think.
