Hey. Loved the column and could not agree more with some of your top picks, especially Theismann. Not a huge Cole fan either but that's more because he's getting up there in years and has trouble remembering what he just saw. Armitage reminds me of the dad from Teen Wolf.

Who would I add to your list? Joe Buck from Fox annoys me a little bit. He's pretty good at calling the action - His arrogance just annoys me though. I remember when he went on and on about how Randy Moss was the lowest form of human excrement when he did that mooning thing in Green Bay. Pompous.

While not a play by play man few annoy me more than Jim Rome. What a blowhard. Some should "what's the frequency kenneth" that guy and watch him soil himself.

Pierre McGuire. His fake excitement and "monster" plays make me switch channels before I puke !!

Bryant Gumbel is absolutely the worst NFL announcer in the biz right. Seems like half of the time, he's not even paying attention to the game. Stunning that he's not on this list.

I also think Vic Rauter is horrible at everything he does, starting with F1. He comes off as a know-it-all that knows absolutely nothing.

Greg Millen and Al Strachan. Greg is such a corporate hack/lackey/schmuck. Strachan is a visual and aural hemerroid.

The worst sports broadcasters are the ones that do hockey broadcasts from the United States. Bob Cole, Chris Cuthbert, Don Whitman, Jim Hughsen and other Canadian commentators are excellent.......awesome, in fact. Go Canada!

Bob Cole, Bob Cole, Bob Cole and lastly, Bob Cole is the worst.

Joe Bowan anytime, anyday - he is at least alive

all

the now monday night football guys. if they had a clue, they would sit down and play with it. bring back abc.

Dick Vitale by far is number 1.

If he is on it, I actually have to mute out to watch.

What about Bryant Gumble, he ruins all th thursday night games on nfl network with his uhmmm uhmmm, and then taking 5 minutes to think of a witty remark for a good play. Or Tony Kornheiser changing his feelings on the patriots every 3 minutes in the monday night game, one minute Tom Brady is his lover, the next minute its the end of the world and the patriots are going no where cause baltimore got a first down, Pierre Mcguire hands down number one, i think tsn put him between the benches in hopes that a fan would jump in and attack him, and of course his ever lasting love for the dump in.

My vote for worst is Stephen Ripley
