What do you expect? He is a tool. He's always been a tool. He will always be a tool. It's the Bungal way. From the top on down.

I'd rather listen to someon swipe their fingernails down a chalkboard than listen to his voice. I've never been able to watch a game that he's announcing......major puke.

I do not like what he said to Bettis...Sounds like more hatin' goin' on...However, he was a better than average player and I did like him on Inside the NFL.

Unfortunately I missed Jerome's broadcast debut. But if Collinsworth really did say that to him, he should be fired. I would feel the same way if the roles were reversed. That is one of the most unprofessional and inappropriate things I've ever heard from an announcer/analyst.

I didn't see it either. So when I read something like that in transcript, I always try to imagine different contexts. If Collinsworth was stating it in a Tom Brokaw, factual fashion, than yeah, that is incredibly lame.

However, I can also imagine it being said in a Fox sports, lets have our announcers seem like regular guys who I'd like to have a beer with fashion where they have the announcers try to appear to have buddy rapport by goading one another.

So my question to those who saw it, which of those two scenarios is closer to matching the demeanor of Collinsworth's statement?

Good point, although I can't imagine why it would have even been brought up.

Not to defend him or anything, because I'm not a big fan of Collinsworth as a commentator either, but he said it something along the lines of "On behalf of the Cincinnati fans, let's go ahead and get it out of the way...the steelers wouldn't have won the super bowl had Carson not gotten injured." (I'm paraphrasing that.) It was in a joking manner and I don't think he meant it as his actual opinion.

I saw him interviewing Warren Moon as part of the HOF coverage recently. They were going through a highlight game of Moon's to provide examples of his career. Collinsworth did make a comment like "we had to search really hard to find a highlight game that wasn't against the Browns." So if nothing else, at least the man can be self depracting.
