call me sexist

ShocknAwe80 : 9/11/2017 10:37 pm
but this female play by play on ESPN is unbearable. My ears are bleeding!
You are sexist

She's been doing College games for a very long time. And she's better than half the clowns they trot out there on these networks

I think she's actually pretty good. Jessica Mendoza on the other hand...
Was that Mary Carillo?

She was a tennis pro. I first heard her doing women's college softball (A fun game to watch!) and she was GREAT! Did the Westminster Kennel club show too and was surprisingly good. But one listen to her doing football and it was obvious she shouldn't be. Just no understanding of or feel for the game. Sad.
I don't like her voice

Doesn't sound like a professional announcer
I like her  
sb2003 : 9/11/2017 10:45 pm : link
But she'll probably be replaced by a real-doll/robot hybrid in the future.
She sounds like she's trying to impersonate male play by play guys

In particular she sounds like a female Kenny Albert.
Now that sideline reporter dude

Yeah what the hell was that, its like they have the b team doing this broadcast.
She's ok

But honestly I find it a little awkward. No big deal. I actually think Ryan is worse. He is simply boring.
There's a certain "tinniness" to her voice  
FranknWeezer : 9/11/2017 10:58 pm : link
that for me makes it sound a bit like background noise. I'm finding myself having to really key in and listen to her intently in order to pick up everything that she is saying. Almost sounds like she's in another room from the microphone. I'm not picking on her, and I hope this works out for her, but I'm having a tough time adjusting to this, as it is not a natural listen, IMO. Maybe they can enhance her sound in production going forward.

She stinks and I don't like her
I've heard worse

She's fine, and better than Chris Berman.

She is a decent PBP announcer  
Jints in Carolina : 9/11/2017 11:06 pm : link
no issue with her.
Mike Tirico and Bryant Gumbel

Now THEY were awful play by play announcers.
They need Greenberg, Golic, and Ditka on this broadcast  
j_rud : 9/11/2017 11:10 pm : link
if ESPN had any serious desire to entertain their viewers they would make that trio a week 1 MNF tradition.

As a small kid I first heard and learned the term "pompous ass" from dad when he was referring to Byrant Gumbel

Rex Ryan is a train wreck as a color analyst and you are complaining about the female play by play??

you are sexist
I just find it shocking that Ryan is so bland  
j_rud : 9/12/2017 12:33 am : link
Who the hell saw that coming? Who would have ever imagined that such a bombastic blowhard would be the color commentary equivalent of xanax?
I never saw the draw with Rex really  
Route 9 : 9/12/2017 12:37 am : link
all the annoying talk about him in 2009-2010. I always thought he was annoying as hell and nothing to do with him was even close to funny. The shitty memes, the videos and the dumb stuff he'd say.

Same with his dumb ass brother. Enough of those two.

Women announcing football games. I just don't like it. Can't stand it, even on college games. It's sexist? Or no more arbitrary than not liking a particular announcer because he/she completely shits the bed when calling plays or the guy is an idiot or boring or at odds with the analyst?

Is just not my preference and I don't enjoy it.
Route 9 : 9/12/2017 2:54 am : link
I mainly donít care. She seems like a very nice woman. Her voice was really weird for me and a bit annoying. I could line you all up easily with 20 women I know personally whose voice is completely awful and makes her voice sound like Frank Sinatraís.

Weíve been looking at and listening to women in sports games for years, itís not that big of a deal. However, on the other hand, what is annoying is when they have to post about it on Facebook or do tons articles as if it is really some monumental moment in time because someone with a vagina called a football game. If gender or whatever doesnít matter, why make a big stink about it? (but only in a positive light) Eh whatever.

I think isnít the play by play or color commentator for the NJ Devils a woman? Well, to be fair, who gives a fuck about the DevilsÖ?

I think it's just men don't want to hear a woman call football game because they hear enough woman talking from their wives and girlfriends haha

Either way, Sergio Dipp was one of the weirder things Iíve seen recently. Was he a troll or something?

yes it was definitely her fault

I remember when Gumbel was doing play by play and can't count how many times a running back ran for a good chunk of yardage, well past the first down marker and Bryant would say "and he appears to have a enough for a first down". It would be like 3rd and 2, and the running back runs for eight yards. Bryant would be like "and it appears he has enough for the first down". Absolutely brutal.

NoPeanutz : 9/12/2017 8:06 am : link
Whenever a team would bring on the punter he would declare "and they'll turn it over in downs!"
But I'd still take him over Tirico.
this was my takeaway from the crew last nite.

PatersonPlank : 9/12/2017 9:31 am : link
things. If I didn't read about this "big deal" then I wouldn't have even given it a second thought. I've heard women on college games before, and on soccer matches, etc.
