    Re: Dan Fouts' Charger slobbering was funny



    Next week will be nice because I'll be at the game and the only annoying voice I'll have to deal with is Bruce Cunningham's. :-)

    I think we get the Number 1 crew for next week (Nantz and Simms)

    That was the most biased call by a game from a nuetral announcer I've heard in my recolection. Pretty awful.

    Except Pollard hit him in bounds, and their momentum took them out, which is why the flag wasn't thrown. When a Charger hit a Raven in a similar situation later in the game, Fouts was mute.

    This was probably the worst I've ever heard from Fouts, and that's saying something because he isn't very good as a colour man. He was a great QB. He sucks behind the mike.

    .
    Actually, on that play he did mumble, "are we playing on a soccer field?"

    Re: Dan Fouts' Charger slobbering was funny

    Ha! I thought we were rough on Fouts on this board. Take a look at this article by David Zurawik at the Sun. It's very rare you see an entire network being lambasted by a major media outlet....well if you can consider the Sun a major media outlet.

    I would just mute it and listen to the radio but my father told me he turned the radio on during the delay when they reviewed Rice's amazing play and from then until the Ravens kicked the game winning FG Sandusky NEVER gave the score. Not one time. Lol. That's flat out terrible.

    Re: Dan Fouts' Charger slobbering was funny

    Maybe Fouts should take a gander at Ripken during the AL playoffs if he needs a clue on how to act impartial. Cal went to far IMO to be impartial. Fouts never even pretended to try. The only satisfaction for me is knowing he got to witness that team blow yet another game

    Are you serious? Fouts was terrible with his partiality towards the Chargers. There was very uneven calls (no one is talking about the Torrey Smith non PI call in OT that was so egregious that even Fouts said that should've been a PI) but Dan seemed to shut up when Jacoby Jones was tackled well out of bounds as well as some other obvious homer comments.

    Also anybody with two eyes would make the comment Fouts stated on the 4th and 29 run.

    You definitely did hear this as the Ravens contingency made sure to get loud when the Ravens were on defense. Even better, Ravens players were playing up the crowd when they were on defense too as to make the crowd even louder.

    He praised the Ravens multiple times for their 3rd down conversions at the same time saying how the Chargers offense did nothing in the 2nd half. I really never thought about any bias during the game but obviously I'm alone in this since it sounds like everyone else did.

    I didn't trust my ears when I heard him say "I hope"; I had to ask someone if I had misheard him say "They hope". Nope. Here's the exact quote, for those fortunate enough to miss it:

    “They may call pass interference on the Ravens. The fans are booing now, but they’re going to be clapping real soon. I hope.”

    I've never heard anyone make such a biased statement on a network broadcast of a game. Dierdorf may ball-wash certain players, but even he's never stooped as low as Fouts.

    On the bright side, I wonder if Norv would be interested in an OC job?

    I'm with you. You're not alone.

    But if you say otherwise, this group tends to shout you down when it comes to any perceived bias the broadcast team may have.

    Re: Dan Fouts' Charger slobbering was funny

    Fouts wasn't really bad at all. The only thing that sticks out in my memory is one time a flag was thrown and he said he hoped it was against the Ravens. I can forgive one slip up.

    Most commentators will talk good about a team that's playing good. And bad about a team that's playing bad. And the Ravens did play one bad half of football.
