Just saw the add as I got onto GolfWRX this morning with A-Rod and Joe Buck on it... and I am just willing to bet there are bunch of Joe Buck haters on this site. I may be biased against him being from KC, but I generally watch games he calls on mute.

Commentator threads here turn negative pretty quickly.  I have learn the majority of WRX listen to sports on mute with the exception of Jim Mackay (Bones).  For some reason he is the only voice of sports that forum users have shown is tolerable.

In the spirit of staying positive, I will say I've been extremely impressed with Tony Romo in the booth.

Seriously? I think he is the worst I have heard in a long time. While I am not a Cowboys fan I was hoping Romo would be a decent announcer. He is painful to listen to right now. Maybe once he gets some more experience under his belt he will get better.

While I'm not a hug Joe Buck fan I can mostly tune out the nonsense. I can't ever remember listening to any sporting event set to mute because I don't like the announcer.

Romo does have some inexperience that's evident with some dead airtime, however, his knowledge of the modern game of football far surpasses anyone in the booth today, for obvious reasons. I get so tired of Collinsworth's and Aikman's "well this is how we did it"  talks, when the game is so different now. Also, does anyone know why Aikman's eyes are always so bloodshot?

I am a Cowboy fan and can say that I totally agree.... he is painful to listen to, but it may just be he needs some more time in there.  On the other hand, I do not mind Joe Buck... I do not understand the hate for the guy but I am obviously in the minority.  I would rather listen to Buck than NBIII... even I can't believe I just said that but its true.

Okay, back to Buck...I’m a life long St. Louis (area) Cardinals fan.  Joe’s dad, Jack, is deservedly a Cardinal HOF’er as a broadcaster.  Initially, Joe seemed destined to follow in his father’s footprints, and for a time he was a very good local guy.  Then he went national.  Now he bends so far over backwards to appear unbiased, whenever he draws a Cardinal assignment, that he comes across as biased against the team his dad labored so long for and that he, himself, cut his teeth listening to and learning his professional craft with.  So in that context, he is extremely difficult to listen to.  And unfortunately that creeps into my perception, even in his non-Cardinal work.  YMMV

Except when it comes to KC... he hates KC, and KC hates Joe. Here in lies my bias.

Buck is avg.

Romo has spots where he is funny and insightful, but lots and lots of jibberish and nonsense, he has a long way to go.

eh, my beef with him is his biased approach. as a Cowboys fan even Aikman comes off against the Cowboys sometimes (which i know not every play can go for them). I would prefer Thom Brennaman for both Fox NFL and MLB over Buck. maybe even Matt Vasgersian and his yelling for Home Runs!!!

side note - Fox MLB needs to bring back the MLB theme music and not NFL music for all sports. also, TBS baseball is not enjoyable IMO.

The TBS guys were definitely horrible in NLCS. And agreed that Bones is the only one worth listening to on the weekends.

I wish commentary was optional.  When you buy a ticket to the game you hear the stadium noises and maybe the PA announcer.  We can see for ourselves what's going on and people like John Madden kind of insult our intelligence.  I guess it's the American Way though, can't go anywhere without someone somewhere talking your ear off.  At least do it well like Vin Scully did, a 'less is more' type of approach.

Romo lacks experience in the booth but his insight is 2nd to none in terms of what an offense or defense is going to do or should do.  He is reading defenses for us and showing us how the QB should adjust, no one else has done that analysis to the level Romo does.  If you want to compare him to other first year broadcasters, give a listen to Rex Ryan, Rex is the true definition of awful.

yeah Romo is not your typical analyst like all the others. he's given the game a whole different approach for what the user looks for. he's describing things that the viewer normally doesn't look for or see on the play/replay. i think it's great.

I will also say, John Smoltz is great. Analyzes similarly to Romo, but is a bit more polished in the delivery. I enjoy Smoltzy enough that I can almost forget how much I can't stand Joe Buck.

Smoltz is great. better than McCarver & whoever else they had after Tim left.
