I've been watching a lot of poker shows recently and I think the quality of TV announcers has really gone down hill.
Lon and Norm at the WSOP
(ESPN) can be annoying sometimes but they do know their poker.
I just wish Norm would stop with the 'Raging Cajun" and my ex-wife jokes
Ali Nejad(sp?) on Poker After Dark, generally calls a decent game.
And I do like Lee Ann Tweeden (even though she doesn't announce)
Chris Rose and Joe Stapleton on The Big Game are just starting to get something going but they do need work.
Any why after just 3 weeks are they broadcasting a 'best of' series?
They've only had 3 loose cannon contestants!
Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patton on WPT are starting to get on my nerves especially Vince.
Mike is quite knowledgeable about poker but seems to be testing out his comedy act too much.
They need to tone it down.
The worst is High Stakes Poker.
Whoever decided to give Gabe Kaplan a solo spot in the show should be fired.
Gabe knows poker, he understands the game but half the time I feel I'm at a bad comedy club in the 70's.
Please will someone get him a partner.
I guess I'm gonna have to start watching with the sound muted!
Anyway what does anyone else think?
