Will they have a senior group, disabled group , transgender group , etc? Why not if inclusion is your goal ! Actually this group of females seems an improvement !

As long as the analysts/announcers do a good job, I could give two shits about their age, race, religion, sexual preference, identity, nationality, citizenship, party affiliation, etc. Obviously, your mileage will vary.

I mean, Jerry and the G-Man are both seniors, and both have been with the team forever, so, yes?

I’ll tell you what I’m liking about this telecast so far: No fucking catchphrases.

They’re just you know, covering the game. I still love the analysis and insights that DC provides, but I’ll do without them for a cringeless game call.

It does appear that I’m catching one thumb’s down on automatic, but to answer your question, I’ve done lots of terrible things to people here: I often ask, “do you have anything to support what you’ve just asserted?”

This is not a need-proof era that we live in, currently.

Krista Blunk is killing it on the call. Kayte is Kayte, but at least she has some emotion in her voice for once. Only caught a bit of the pre-game, but from what I saw, I wouldn’t mind them as a 1B team, or as part of the 3-person when Kayte goes back to sidelines post-covid.

Seems like this broadcast team lacks what we get from Doug and the other guys… self inflated egos, loud exuberance, big words that i have to look up, creative nonsensical catch phrases, trying to outdo each other, belief they are bigger than the game, unabased love for certain players…

Did i miss anything or was this shot halfway down and out?
