NFL 2012 Draft in HD

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Really, no thread on this yet?

Really nice to see no ticker on ESPN for a little bit. Glad to hear some boos for Goodell, but not nearly enough.

ESPN audio dropping out pretty bad here. Charter cable, Kingsport TN

Seems ok now. Pretty buggy at the start.

Oh no, it actually WAS ticker free for about 1 minute before the start of the draft.

Those wrap around mics that NFL Network crew are using sound horrible.

Yes, there were definitely audio/video dropouts in the beginning but it seemed to be cleaned up quickly. I was considering going to NFL network but I just can't stand listening to "Prime Time" and Michael Irvin. Too much nonsense and not enough fact.

Does Gruden have ESP or is someone feeding him inside info? He was been pretty much on target on draft picks during the first round (except maybe for that Seattle pick at #15).

NFL Network coverage was far, far better then ESPN. ESPN has really downsized it's presence at the desk with berman too.

Nope, Dolphins. I actually think he's done fine with the Saints penalties, but he just sucks.

Stern gets booed by NBA fans, NHL fans boo Bettman. It's just part of the job.

How does he suck? Example(s)?

NFL Network needs to use that blabbermouth Myyock for these draft shows only and don't ruin a real game with him as commentator. Like ESPN uses Mel Kiper

Really? The lockout, inconsistencies in player suspensions and fines, fines on Cowboys and Redskins for following capless season rules, Starcaps, destruction of Spygate tapes, London games, wants 18 game season, appeals process is a joke (appeals go to him, who made the original ruling), poor response to concussion issues (doctors not at field level, SD [and maybe others] never penalized for breaking the rules), outdated blackout rules...

Anybody else have an issue with Goodell's ferocious hugging and holding of the # 1 draft choices...I found it nauseating. Walk out acknowledge the crowd and shake hands with the Commissioner, put on the hat, and take the picture.... Eisen's lame, tired chevy Chase routine about the punter taken in the 3rd round, and the Tebow references...Very weak, the guy is just horrible, even Mayock put him in his place....Boomer's "Eh" every 3 rd word got old, but he did have the line of the draft.... "Andy Reid likes to eat from all sides of the Buffet Table"..... Almost killed me, fell off my couch...

Eisen is not very good but I cannot stand berman. berman cannot get one complete sentence out with a "eh" or a long pause or fumbling for the next word. He seems completely unprepared.

He does improvise fairly well when he knows the topic. I think part of the problem is that there are probably multiple voices going off in his headset and he's trying to filter through all of them. I'll take him over NFL network.
