What do people hate about Joe Buck?

I don't 'like' him by any means but I was just wondering where the hatred comes from. I won't disagree, just curious.

I get different announcers on my broadcast, so I don't have a vote on how they did tonight.

Joe Buck is torturous. Just plain lousy.

McCarver is boring.

Just a horrible duo. How they have lasted this long is beyond comprehension.

I love how people call Buck boring - he's a play by play analyst he's supposed to tell you what is occuring in the game nothing more nothing less.

Tim McCarver makes my ears hurt, I can name a dozen better color analysts. He doesn't understand that the listener doesn't have to be entertained by him - the game does that - do us a favor and shut your pie hole every now and again.

McCarver is absolutely horrendous. I don't mind Buck too much but prefer him announcing football games.

Joe Buck. Really don't understand why so many people dislike him.

When he figures out he should stay FAR away from Baseball - then Ill stop ripping him to shreds every chance I get.

I mean, c'mon, if you're going to follow the sport at least learn BASIC things... the guy is an utter moron - I hate his face.

Joe Buck never gets excited over a great play. And here are my thoughts on Tim McCarver:

For baseball, Vin Scully. No question.

For basketball, I have never come across a better radio broadcaster than Mike Inglis. He brings that game to life.

There are a lot of announcers that I don't like listening to. However, the announcers that actually annoy me are the homers. That guy who does the Yankee games, boy does he annoy me. Old Phil Rizzuto, Harry Carey, etc.

Sterling is one of the worst you are going to listen to. Bad voice, bad announcing skills, horrid phrases, and just awful all around.

Are you talking about the guy that says "Yankees win" followed by what I can only describe as it sounding like he is having a seizure, followed by another "Yankees win." Yeah, I know, most announcers come up with some form of catch phrase, but that is the best he could come up with?

I don't know that people really hate him but they sure don't like his style. I never liked him because I always had the feeling he could care less about the game and is a blatant front runner, sometimes even inning by inning.
I also think many people feel that he would prefer to spend as much time as possible staring in the mirror. He just has that air of being a phony and a big time kiss up.

McCarver on the other hand has never gotten over the fact he was never a Yankee! lol but true

So are you basically saying he only does baseball games because his father? Like he would be letting him down some how if he chose not to do baseball?
