    I had to turn off MNF halftime. It gets worse every week. Does he have an illness?
  2. The worst thing about Chris Berman's voice is it's attached to Chris Berman.

    I saw the thread title and hoped he'd lost his voice!
  5. No such luck. Who is his fan base? I've never met anyone who claims to like him. How this obnoxious, bloviating Fred Flintstone in-a-suit is still broadcasting and apparently still popular is beyond me.

    I have never been a Chris Berman fan. His football commentary is him trying to be a reincarnation of Howard Cosell. There is nothing original about his commentary, what so ever.

    He's certainly been living on that part of his legacy for too long. His shtick has gotten very tiresome. Isn't his "back, back, back..." reference a guarantee for every broadcast no matter the sport? :rolleyes:
  9. I know, and apparently that guarantees him a job there for life, no matter how badly he does it.
