Versus Announcers

Rate this topic

I'd really like to know how Versus picks the guys to call games. Rick Peckham and Darryl Reigh are the announcers tonight and coincidently during the regular season they call the games for who else...the SHARKS. This is complete bulls*** and totally biased announcing. It's a NATIONAL TV NETWORK, not local. They are obviously pro-San Jose and I can't blame them; I'm sure Ken & Mick would too. But they should put announcers of teams who are out of the playoffs on these games so they don't seem biased...this is complete bulls*** and why I will be watching FSN starting game 3. f*** you Versus and your piece of s*** NHL coverage.

Actually, Peckham call for Tampa and Reaugh calls for the Stars. I don't really have a problem with either of them overall, but Reaugh gave us such head-scratchers as "Mastodonic" and "Vaselinity". Plus, tonight they were pretty anti-Detroit, unlike when they called the Phoenix series where they were pretty level.

I was hoping someone else caught that. I was gonna use that exact word in my post haha

Reagh is a moron, but he is Dallas's moron. Versus is just horrendous with picking announcers most of the time. Their policy is NBC's policy is NHL's policy: back the hot team and never question the refs.

Gary Thorne and Bill Clement please.

This please. Why not reunite the best hockey announcers in the history of US television.

Also, more Sam Rosen and Joe Micheletti, and bring back Dave Strader and Darren Pang too.

Anyone but Doc, Edzo, and Pierre Mcguire. Hate those guys, they almost single-handedly spoiled my enjoyment of the '08 finals.

I don't mind Doc, can't argue with Edzo and Pierre though.

Although Pierre does supply endless entertainment, so I don't really "hate" him.

Daryl Reaugh was out and out cheering for the Sharks. I almost had to turn off the sound. Give me the ghost of Tom Mees.

I actually wish it was San Jose's announcers tonight. I find Hahn and Remenda's commentary to be some of the least biased in the league.

This may have been discussed before, but I haven't found anything on it. Does anyone else get interruptions in VS signal? I have BrightHouse and VS signal is total crap. (All other channels are fine.) It cuts out at least twice a minute and it's annoying to try to watch a high paced game when you're getting interruptions. One of these days I'm going to miss an OT goal and be really ticked...

I just broke my RooR bong...

Bummer... I have a German RooR from the Amsterdam Shop sitting next to me, though I haven't been using it much. I'm pretty obsessed with my other toy, the Volcano!!!

I didn't really have any issue with the announcers. I spent a lot of time talking over them, but until the Sharks exploded for those 12,000 goals - they were all over the Red Wings. I didn't think they were bad.

I totally agree with the ads Versus displays over top of the game play, that's what time outs and stops in game play are for.

the coverage was awful... the best part was: "Howard couldn't see optically"....

They said the word optically a few times to talk about Howard being screened on a shot or goal. Are there other ways to see besides optically? I mean can you see auditory or smellatory? Lol so stupid.... They were really bad...

Yeah another bad point I missed the Cleary goal and they wouldn't not show it again but they kept showing the Shark plays two to three times after every play almost!
