Dude... they are not similar. Al Michaels is intelligent and interesting. Jim Nantz is bland, dull as dishwater, tells me nothing the scoreboard graphics don't already show, and knows nothing about the game.

Sports commentary is utterly unnecessary..aren't u WATCHING the game? U should be able to figure out whats going on without Uncle Troy (or whoever) explaining the COMPLEX ACTION

What do you think about Joe Buck's announcing?

Without the play by play and color commentary, it would be so boring, nobody would watch.

And there are certain complexities of the rules that aren't obvious without instant replay and explanation.

If the networks didn't know for certain they needed highly paid announcers, they wouldn't be spending all that money on them. 

Of course if one hates them that badly, there's always the mute button. Wink

I agree that announcers are needed to explain facts and add insight to the event. I don't care for announcers who don't know much about the sport they're covering and only state obvious facts.
