Home announcers in your home market, maybe. Announcers on a national broadcast who show favoritism, no. These guys are supposed to be impartial.

That would be nice. I appreciate guys that know our team, and can be brutally honest when need be about what's going on with the home team.

Besides, if you ever heard Homer Call of the Week on BaD Radio, you would have a new appreciation for their potential.

I can't believe all the hate for Collinsworth. IMO, he's the best NFL tv guy right now.

I agree. I wish there was a way to sync your home Radio Broadcast to what you are watching. Wish the NFL would look into this, I'd even pay for it.

Radio is pretty close to live, and I can't figure out a way to pause it. HDTV seems to be 30 seconds behind the live action at the stadium. I've had calls before from friends where they are discussing plays that have been over and they are in formation for the next play.

All big name teams have home radio.

Still honestly, radio is for only if you can't be near a TV.

Yes, I have exerienced somewhat large delays in HD broadcasts as well, but I am sure that will get better with each passing season. A couple years ago when HD was still relatively new, sports bars would have one or two HD TVs and then a bunch of old school connections and the old school TVs would be ahead of the HD one. So one section of the bar would be cheering and would be a total spoiler for the majority watching the HD. Most places have since figured out how to synch it up, or just have all HD capable TVs.

Yes or no
No...but it doesn't matter much now, does it? He hasn't got his beloved Cowboys to root on any more.

Just annoying when you try to enjoy a given game where one side is described as wonderful and the other barely adequate. Especially when it isn't true.

Madden made listening to a game pure hell as he was all about promting himslef as a genius. He never saw a play that didn't work that he would have called or a good play that he did not think of before the coach.

You ever see Dan Fouts do a Chargers game? Talk about a homer.

And Dan DeirDork is the absolute worst. Forget that he says the stupidest things like "you gotta score points if you wanna win in this league", I heard him go homer for teams like the Colts and Pats whenever they play the Ravens.
