CBS Final Four coverage needs multi-channel play-by-play

28 03 2010

Do I really have to listen to Jim Nantz and Clark Kellogg during the Final Four broadcasts? Hello, Mute button.

Why can’t they broadcast the Final Four like NASCAR or even The Masters, with multiple channels simultaneously but with different broadcast teams? Or even broadcast the same channel with multiple audio channels to choose from?

So instead of being forced to listen to Jim Nantz and Clark Kellogg, we could choose to listen to Dick Enberg, Gus Johson, Ian Eagle, or possibly Verne Lundquist. Better yet, we could flip back and forth just for the pure entertainment of it all.

Maybe I don’t want to listen to a Duke promoter, or the guy who is calling the game from the “this is what Butler needs to do to win the game” angle. Maybe I want to choose the bias I want to listen to, not the one CBS is forcing down my throat.

And while I’m at it, maybe someone from Fox Sports could look into the same thing for the football playoffs. I can’t tell you how many times I would beg to hear Kenny Albert’s (or anyone else’s) voice over Joe Buck and Troy Aikman during the NFC playoffs on Fox. Maybe they can get Darryl Waltrip and Mike Joy to do an alternate NFL broadcast opposite of Joe and Troy. At least they would make Cowboy’s games interesting to listen to.
