    TV announcer

    I lost all respect for him for calling the Rams out for doing nothing wrong. 9 seconds left and he is literally freaking out because we aren't using our last timeout. Does he realize that makes no sense at all? Yeah, we could have taken a shot at the end zone and risk getting sacked, running out of time, throwing a pick, etc. etc. etc. (and with a rookie QB those mistakes are even more likely). Does he not remember the Big XII championship game last year, it's possible to run out of time without doing anything wrong. I am very happy we got the FG to end the half, Spags did absolutely nothing wrong.

    I want him fired!

    (Joking about the fired part, but I want him to apologize)

    We have to have the worst announcer crew in the league. On weekly basis you hear the dumbest stuff from them.

    John Lynch can't go more than 10 minutes without mentioning his playing days. My wife and I were laughing because during halftime we remarked that Lynch somehow went an entire half without mentioning his playing days, and less than a minute into the 2nd half he said 'I played on a lot of defenses, and I'll tell you...'

    And yes, I agree about the clock management thing. You go up there and spike it, best case scenario you have 4 seconds left maybe? You can't run a play to the endzone in 4 seconds so you end up kicking it anyway.

    Ron Pitts was worse than Lynch. I think Pitts is on the Seattle payroll.

    They were absolutely awful. Between the end of the first half and "I believe that will be a sack" when bradford clearly went down without even trying to throw the ball

    Ron Pitts does justice to his name as a TV announcer. But then, we just can't top notch sportcaster for every game -- especially if they follow the Sawks.

    They follow the Rams not the Seahags. Ive watched those two fools say some pretty dumb crap every single game of the year. It was especially hard to watch listen to them during the first two games.

    Hey, Pitts and Lynch are also doing next week's game vs. Detroit That's 4 of 5 games for them....I think FOX is trying to tell them something.

    If the Rams whup Detroit, we might start getting another announce team. Or, they will let Pitts/Lynch cover all the games possible and then they can certainly say they are knowledgeable about the Rams.

    I don't mind Pitts and Lynch, because after having covered most of the Rams games this season, they actually know the names of the guys on the team!

    Re: TV announcer

    On the radio they said it seems like every year (since we got bad) they stick 2 new guys to announce for us every season... Like to get practice in or to see if they are any good. I also turn the sound off and listen to the radio I like listning to DeMarco Farr and those guys, they know everthing about the rams

    I like Lynch and Pitts. They say some weird things, but I like the sound of their voices, and they know about the Rams. They obviously know football, and they do a good job of announcing.

    I think you're right Bradwilll, at least I really hope so. If we win a couple of more good games, Pitts and Lynch will have to cover the...Niners!!!!!

    I could careless if Lynch and Pitts tends to be offtask in terms of commentating, we need some primetime NBC/ESPN action!!! Though our best bet of having that is next year.
