re: Best commentator/analyst who never played the game
You asked for specific and now changing the parameters

Most PBP guys didn’t play the game so

Alex Wallau was amazing as he was a guy who never did tv until Cosell retired and he became ABC primary boxing analyst

You guys naming play by play guys are annoying the frick out of me. The vast majority of play by play guys didn't play the game. Way to ruin a thread.

PBP and commentators/analysts are different.

Look up the definition of sports commentator and get back to us.

Apparently, reading comprehension is a skill that you do not possess. The title specifically says "commentator/analyst".

To help educate you, another name for the PBP guy is Play by play COMMENTATOR or Main COMMENTATOR.




And the fact that that would make you think the thread is ruined is an excellent example of one being a soyboy.



Congrats!!

re: Best commentator/analyst who never played the game
Back in the 80's there weren't a million cameras on the field, so when a guy scored a TD, you just assumed it was a TD as the players and fans were going crazy.

They never showed flags on TV. Sometimes you thought you had a TD for long minutes afterward until you saw an official indicate some penalty (no mic) long after the fact.

So I always appreciated that Keith Jackson would alert the viewer immediately after a big play with "hold the phone." Letting you know he sees a flag on the field.

Just those little touches.

Instead of using Wiki which is altered, why don’t you go look into what media and the medium says?

Maybe do better next time

You truly are the gift that keeps giving...

Even the poster who started the thread said it included both.

What is altered in the WIKI link?

Nowhere in the ENTIRE article that you link was the word COMMENTATOR even mentioned...and, yet, that is what you are using to defend your idiocy?

I would suggest that YOU "maybe do better next time", but I realize that this is the BEST that you can do.

re: Best commentator/analyst who never played the game
Clown you know anyone can edit Wiki. Ever wondered why you can’t use as a citation source? Have you any education?

As I said, use the source directly from the industry instead of Wiki.

No ,the OP changed parameters after people listed PBP people. But you do you.
