Petition to Remove McCarver

If you are as disgusted and annoyed as I am that people are forced to listed to Tim McCarver if they watch the playoffs on Fox, stop by and sign this petition.

To the president of Fox Sports,

We respectfully ask you to remove Tim McCarver from your postseason Major League Baseball coverage. Aside from McCarver's obvious bias towards one major league team in particular (and a perennial postseason contender, at that), his color commentary is vapid and devoid of any insight and analysis that would add value to Fox's postseason broadcasts. We believe he does a disservice to the millions of fans who cannot attend postseason games, as well as tarnishing the reputation of Fox Sports. Please see to it that McCarver is replaced by one of the many fine color analysts available who can offer real value to the fans and to Fox Sports. Thank you.


I came across it while perusing the Soxaholix and I whole heartedly agree that this is a worthy cause. Al Leiter who is unfortunate enough to broadcast with him has to endure painful of hours of non-sense while the Senator himself offers insightful comments and adds value to the program. It is not as if there is dearth of broadcasting talent. Fox sticks four people in the booth at a time and there are plenty of people that would do a better job than McCarver who for some reason is highly regarded enough by Fox to give him this cushy gig. Besides his clearly apparent crush on Jeter's crotch and anything to do with pinstripes, he is flat out horrible. Our very own Gary Cohen runs rings around this guy. It may not be fair to compare Cohen with McCarver since Gary is as good as anyone in the business, but when the playoffs are on, am I wrong to think that the cream of the crop should be calling the games when the most people are actually watching the games? I do not have huge problem with Buck, Brennaman, and Lyons who are their other main broadcasters, but McCarver needs to go and go quickly. I really cannot fault Deion Sanders for giving him a bath back in 1992. Deion may not have be right, but there are not many that can tolerate Tim McCarver and one cannot be expected to be able to quell their disdain for Timmy boy.

Stop by AmIAnnoying.com to check out to see McCarver's page there. Over the past few years, the results have been rather strong to back up the case that McCarver is just not the man for the job.

In 2003, Out of 2559 Votes: 69.91% Annoying
In 2002, Out of 2066 Votes: 70.96% Annoying
In 2001, Out of 4736 Votes: 61.91% Annoying

In 2004, 74.41% of the people that stopped by have found him annoying.

Who can argue with the public? They have spoken and now it is time for Fox to listen.

Hi Nice Blog. If you ever need help working on it you can send me your page anytime if you every get stuck doing updates. I am a web designer and an ecommerce geek and I can show you how to make money with this blog. I would be glad to do this and wave my fees; the only thing I ask in return is a small favor. Please post this link to this site from here. Skin Cancer Treatments. The site is filled with skin cancer pictures and information. There is also a great one about mole removal and abnormal growths. Be warned though; most of this is stuff is very gross and graphic, but people need to see what this skin cancer looks like: cancerous mole pictures. If you need me my web design company is Reno SEO...PEACE!

Good Day mr. met,

Do you want to Prevent Skin cancer? I have been looking
around at blogs related to this post and I found your site.

Nationally, there are more new cases of Skin Cancer each year than the combined incidence of breast, prostate, lung and colon cancers. Putting proven cancer protection and early detection techniques into action could eliminate at least 100,000 cancer cases and 60,000 cancer deaths in the U.S. each year. I have a site that I thought would help. So I wanted to leave you a quick message while I was here.

Take a look at this site you will be glad
you had did! The site deals with stop skin cancer,Dermafend,and Prevent Skin cancerrelated information.

mr. met, I have some great stuff on my site that may be of assistance to you or some one you know.

Regards!
