Jason G is right on. Rod black has to be the worst. I refuse to watch any sport that he covers. I love to watch golf but i cannot watch it if he is talking. what an annoying jock-sniffing girly-man.

He knows nuthin about nuthin.

I'll add in my 2 cents about the Senators announcer..this guy Dean Brown is okay when he's doing the play-by-play but once he starts analyzing I want to barf. A know-it-all who knows diddly about the game....he is obviously too obese to have ever played the game.

He has to shaddup and let Gary Galley speak. at least Galley played the freaking game .

The leafs duo of Bowen & millen are unbelievably bad. They are so bad....it's fun to watch just to hear what kind of garbage they'll come up with.

I have to chime in on the Bob Cole Talk, Yes he's old and senile whne it comes to announcing, I am quite Tired of Him. One thing everyone has 110% wrong is that he is part of the "Leaf Nation", or he is "Leaf Biased", as a leaf fan and more so as a hockey fan, I have to say he is definitely not, he never says anything positive about the leafs and seems to swoon over the play of any other team other than the leafs, we leaf fans sadly hear him the most and I have never heard him say anything positive about the leafs unless we are blowing someone out (rarely we do) if you actually listen, he's definitely a sens fan, and like the rest of them, can all burn... :0P

If you've ever watched an NFL Network broadcast and endured Bryant Gumbel for 3+ hours,I don't see anyone that poor on a National level and if you have seen his show Real Sports on HBO,he's a closet racist to boot.As bad as he is,his brother Greg is OUTSTANDING!Bryant should try taking some pointers from Chris Walby and learn how it should be done.

Sam Cosentino,

this guy just sucks, he speaks the same way regardless of what he talking about, he has the same tone and inflection, which is to talk as loud and obnoxiously as possible, if he would only tone it down and take a more relaxed approach, he talks like he is reporting in a hurricane... Must be taking Lessons from Pierre McGuire....

I can't believe Rod Black did not make it onto this list, this guy must think he gets paid by the word, watching him do blue jays games is brutal, he talks to his color guys (who were actual players) like he knows more than them, i do enjoy the odd jab from Pat Tabler who seems to put him in his place every once in a while, but this guy still yaps like he's played pro ball before and that he has more experience than the colour guy, this guy needs to defer to the experience of the colour man to be a good sportscaster, but instead tells him whats it's like or how it is, he's never played any sport even at an amateur level!

what personal experience could he possibly have to make him an expert on any sport? I listen to the radio when he announces...

He is Canada's worst sportscaster hands down...

Pierre McGuire

is clearly the worst most annoying "sportscaster" on the air today, he's a total loud mouth, the man yells everything into the mic with his trailer park vocal style, if he only knew as much as he thinks he does, sadly this guy just keeps talking and talking, shut up already, we don't care what you have to say...

Bob Cole is the best RADIO announcer on TV.
Terry, 2007-12-05 17:11:04

I won't pile on Bob Cole, but he is clearly a worthy No. 1.

Though not a sportscaster, that condescending blowhard, Michael Landsberg and his awful Off the Record show deserve a mention as well. I think convicts should be forced to watch this ridiculous program as a form of punishment.

Jack armstrong is very annoying too, he's a Dick Vitale wanna be. UUUUUGGH.

chuck Swirsky is also terrible. He's forever blaming refs for everything wrong on the court and his sayings. AAAAAHHHH.
