Any one else frustrated by our "voice of the panthers" last night?
A few missteps
- Calvin Benjamin
- Godfrey ran up oh wait no that's a diff player with dreadlocks
- What teams out there???? First , second, eleventh???
- A panthers injured! Strait to commercial who cares what his name is. Enjoy squirming till we get back to find out.
-Let me make a joke or tell a pointless story while I should be calling play by play!
-Can he even mention players involved in a play?

Sure it's 90 players on each team but dude have a cheat sheet so you can look them up for us! He's got a good announcer voice but it's not enough!

I watched some of the other streams on nfl network and those local announcer called the plays, said the players involved, if they didn't know they'd pause to look it up.

I find it hard to criticize Mick. I've grown up to his voice.

A WHOLE PIE!

Also, the fact you said his name wrong in the thread title is either blissful irony or wittiness.....

He's sucked balls since day 1 and the addition of Kelli Whatever-her-name-is on the sidelines only makes things worse because she's terrible as well.

 

I don't know all the specifics, nor do I care, but Rosinski was the best and they haven't come close to that level of competence since.

mute button should solve your problem.  im too busy yelling at the tv to pay attention to whom did what in a broadcast booth.

 

i like his passion for the panthers.  ill take that over boring play by play monotony anyday.

I wish it was wittiness hahaha. Glad I don't get paid to write threads.

The rock band analogy to start the broadcast wad like a kick in the teeth. So award.

He knows football, but I still don't like him as a play by play guy for all the reasons listed above.

He uses the oddest analogies. The cream of a Krispy Kreme donut one topped the cake for me yesterday.

When he mentioned the lead in someone's pencil my wife and I looked at each other and laughed.

 

Why was he talking about someone's boner?

Is there anything we don't bitch about besides announcers, beat writers, national media, coach, the assistant coaches, the GM, owner, other fans, and about half the players?

Can we all agree the Topcats are hawt at least?

He doesn't sound any better than he did 8 years ago when I had to listen to play by play on the radio
