I like Chris Cuthbert. And Chris Walby. Elliot Friedman knows his game. Glen Suter does a good job. Rod Black is good. Greg Frehrs is getting better. Danny Macmanus is getting better
The rest? If they're on TV, they should be able to do the job. The bad ones don't keep the viewer up to date as to what is happening on the field, and appear disinterested at times. See Steve Armitage and Mark Lee.
A little bit.
John Wells was a pretty good broacaster, and I suspect that after 40 years in the business, if TSN "canned" him, he can live with it....
However, I suspect he retired.
But yes, I was getting a tad annoyed by Khari's giggling.
But as this is his first full year as a colour guy, I think overall he is doing pretty well.
He needs to control the giggles, slow down a bit, but generally his comments are pretty good.
I prefer him to Danny Mac or Chris Walby anyday.
And it still isn't his fault they keep pairing him with Steve "does my head look like a turnip" Armitage, who has been one of the worst broadcasters in the last 30 years....
If you dont mind hearing the Blue Bombers described as the Green Riders or Tig'-Cats I suppose John Wells was great. Arius, Im concerned about you. Why are you even arguing for about John Wells being even a shred descent? Its a proven scientific fact that he was the MOST inaccurate CFL commentator of alllllll time. The only man that gives him a run for the worst EVER was his own father Jack. The record has been set straight, continue living people!
Funnily enough, i liked Jones more after he showed some personality by laughing at the Tabbies. They were so inept that they were comical (watching them on offence was akin to a drunken monkey on roller skates) and he just seemed more human for reacting in a way broadcasters rarely do.
...you mean ol cactus Jack....best half-inebriated announcer of all time....he sure made me laugh over the yrs. .... half the time..i don't think he knew if he was in the Peg. doing a game ...Regina or wherever...John on the other hand was a tea-totler...but could have used a few 'drinks' on his broadcasts.......would have made his delivery a little better ...methinks... :lol:
