Discussion in 'Portland Trail Blazers' started by B-Roy, Mar 7, 2017.
The day you’re swayed by anything in a positive way on this board we will all celebrate.
They are ok. But whoever fired Mike and Mike should be shot.
The coolest thing I could imagine would be to point those fancy microphones at the floor so we essentially hear everything the players are saying without any commentators at all. Of course, it'd probably have to be rated R broadcasts, and they'd probably need a sneaker squeak eliminator, but still, how great would that be...?
They've come a long way. I enjoy both of them and look forward to the future of them in Blazer Broadcasting.
Mike and Mike were more dynamic. Calabro and Hurd are nice guys and comfortable. But the experience you get listening to them is the same as eating a generic candy bar and seeing the Nestle TM on the wrapper. No offense.
I really don't have much feeling of difference either way. These guys are fine. Rice was a clown.
Absolutely they need to get the adds off the score window. They had a way of adding it to the top that i didn't mind. It's called a tree or something? @HCP can you help here? But obviously they know the second that we are waiting to watch a free throw we take a quick look at things like Fouls and Time Outs or Score. Which is exactly the time they cover the score window with an add. I'm trying to get the info on how many time outs Stotts is trying to waste and all i get is a Buffalo Wild Wings add.
(That’s all I got to say)
When you pretend you don't know how to spell ad, use green font.
Why does it matter. Like it or not, sounds like the team will be sold anyway.
I didn't proof read it. What did i spell wrong?
Oh i see it now. Dammit!
Might have just as well spelled Addition!
3 addvertisements for your IQ, green boy!
I prefer them to Mike and Mike to be honest.
They have both improved significantly from season one. Lamar has stopped trying to be a joker and gives pretty good analysis. It could be much much worse. Extend them both.
Kevin Calabro is terrible and should be replaced with someone else who has a deep voice, knows basketball, respects the Blazers, and can provide a description of the game with minimum errors. Calabro continues to fail to identify who has fouled, which foul, what number foul, and details of the foul. And he fails to report substitutions of players of both teams, plays being run, floor rotation patterns, off-ball movements to get open, and even obvious no-call fouls.
Instead, we hear as many as 5 times per game that Jake Layman played college ball at Maryland, that Zach Collins is only 21, that Simons is 19, that Seth is Steph's brother, etc, and often hear that we are in Seattle. He often misidentifies who made the basket, if he reports at all, and despite all the data assistants he has too rarely reports on key game parameters showing on the scoreboard.
Lamar Hurd is by far the leader of those 2, and it is time to get him a better partner for these broadcasts.
Yeah that's a pretty blatant ad for addition. Need to watch that ad that adds a D
So I just ran this by the graphics department, That only happens one time a game every other game. So relax, get off your mom's couch, put down the Cheetos and stretch, live a little and take that time to start inflating your "girlfriend" #SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
Oh, sorry.....Just ran this by my director of broadcasting , and he said thanks for the feedback. Always trying to improve the broadcast for RipCity.
That includes you mouth breathers!
