kingwilly Posted November 30, 2007 Report Share Posted November 30, 2007 Whoever thought bringing Gumbel in to announce games for NFL Network should be fired.Bryant has to be the most whining, boring and otherwise lifeless voice in broadcasting. His voice lacks any hint of passion. It lacks even the most nuanced inflections that might indicate human emotion. His voice is, without a doubt, robotic.What can possible have been the reasons for having him paired with Collinsworth, who knows his stuff and lets his sense of humor bleed through his more serious color calls. You can often hear Collinsworth smiling as he talks, whereas the only thing I can think of when Gumbel speaks is what kind of batteries he runs on...D? maybe those big suare things you put in camping flahslights? Whatever they are, I have to believe the NFL Network gets a deal on them from Rayo-vac.For this to be the announcing "product" you get on an NFL Network gamecast, I cannot fathom how they think we should pay extra for this. Someone needs to reconsider the on-air tandem for the next go round. Gumbel has to go. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
