ESPN Please Fire Dick Enberg

I can't stand Dick Enberg anymore.

He's the most boring, and uninformed tennis commentator on the network

It's incredible the amount of factual mistakes he makes.

The combination of coverage between ESPN and The Tennis Channel was a great improvement. We were able to see matches that in past years we wouldn't have. However I cringe everytime I hear that guys voice.

Please ESPN, I'm begging for your mercy, get rid of Dick Enberg

Re: ESPN Please Fire Dick Enberg

Totally. I don't want to seem ageist, but (1) Bud Collins is senile; and (2) I can't bear to look at Dick Enberg's face--I feel like it's going to melt away or something, like toward the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

ESPN should fire ESPN itself. I'm sick of that bunch of stupid fascists.

ESPN are a disgrace to sports broadcasting. Whether deliberate or not (fat chance) their provocative flag mistake is about as low as it gets.

Re: ESPN Please Fire Dick Enberg

Actually to fuck is quite pleasurable, far from annoying in my book

They bring the whole concept of at home viewing down, i don't want to hear or see them and their idiotic (past it) comments and stupid observations.

i will stop short of saying i hate them, but i certainly don't want them in my home in any capacity.

i dislike commentators in general but those two fools make me sick.

:sick:

Re: ESPN Please Fire Dick Enberg

I used to like him, but he's been annoying for a few years now- ugh. Some of his comments are so inappropriate and make him sound like an idiot.

He's just too old. He makes ridiculous mistakes and then covers them up with even more ridiculous remarks.

Re: ESPN Please Fire Dick Enberg

Whoever came up with the pairing of Dick and Mary-Joe needs to be shot. They are by far the worst commentators on the network period. Even Mary is becoming pretty intolerable. And who invited Bud back? The man is insane. Cliff, PMac, Killer, Chris and Pam can stay though. They rule!

Re: ESPN Please Fire Dick Enberg

I think American tennis commentating needs a pretty huge reboot. Most of them have been doing it waayy too long and need to be taken out behind the woodshed and shot.

I like ESPN, they ussually transmit every single sports event I'm interested in, and they do it in a very professional way... I don't understand why you are against them...
