    Praise be to God! I am sure that Dierdork is a very nice person but a horrible announcer. He is the best at stating the blatantly obvious that I have ever seen or heard and provides no depth or insight into his comments.

    I named him Captain Obvious years ago. Good riddance to bad rubbish IMO.

    Gus signed a deal with FOX a couple of years ago. They don't seem to use him for the NFL which is too bad.

    Re: Good news for Ravens Fans - Dierdorf to Retire!

    My memory of Dier-Dork was the game where he insisted that a tipped ball only negated Defensive Pass Interference, not Offensive. A flag had been thrown on Boldin for man-handling a defender after the ball was batted into the air. Of course, when they picked up the flag and mentioned that it had been tipped and so there was no interference, I think that Gum-ball went on to a CBS promo.

    Put me in the "Glad he is going" column.

    Actually love hearing him do NCAA Tournament games, which he won't be able to do at Fox. But never cared much for him in a football booth.

    Mayock? Eh....the guy over analyzes everything. He should stick to the studio and his college player analysis, which he is pretty good at.

    Agreed.

    I love Mayock's draft stuff but he and Nessler are quite boring IMO.

    I guess I'll be in the minority here. I liked Dierdorf and thought he was always complementary towards the Ravens.

    Those two are a hell of a lot better than the first two they had. I think it was Bryant Gumbel and ... the name escapes me. But it was so bad I had to turn it off and listen to the radio even though it was out of synch.

    he got the punt return call (Miami?) but otherwise I never thought he added much to the game.

    Agreed.

    He was a cheerleader -- whichever team was hot at the moment, he slobbered them. Chucky does the same thing.

    OMG. They were turrible. He had two -- Bob Popa and Matt Millen.

    Sorry, I can't stand him. I thought he was going to bust a nut in the booth going on and on about A.J. Green.

    If nothing else, we won't have to hear about is alleged bias anymore.
    I always thought he was a Raven's hater.
