Thread: Please make Buckner shut up

    Default Please make Buckner shut up

    He knows what every player has thought while they are doing something in every game they ever played in their entire life. Nothing he doesn't know.

    Can't say I disagree with you but if you are just now noticing this you've clearly not watched many games on tv or were previously devoid of any kind of hearing ability whatsoever and recently had corrective surgery. Those are the only two explanations.

    If he is such a wealth of knowledge, then I dont know why he should shut up...

    I disagree. I love Quinn. Great insights and a guy who is genuinely having fun and informing the masses.

    I can't hear them tonight, we lost the sound on our TV so I had to do the play-by-play to the wife. Needless to say she went in the other room about half way through the third quarter.

    What if he had a TV with broken speakers and just got a new one?

    What if his remote control was stuck on mute for the past several years, and he just got that replaced as well?

    Perhaps his newborn children - kids who are usually asleep by game time and are easily awoken by a grown man's befuddled laughter - have grown up?

    I think there are more than two explanations!

    Sorry! I disagree! I enjoy Quinn's commentary and his explanations of game situations. Sometimes he "over explains" but I still enjoy his commentary nonetheless.

    If he was articulate it wouldnt be bad but alot of the time he changes thoughts or angles several times before getting to the point and by then its several plays later.

    I get tired of buckner playing referee on every play "oh they missed this call" "oh it should have been called this" almost always in the opposing teams favor Id say its 90 - 10 in the oppositions favor. I only pray that other referee's dont receive copies of our games with chris and quinn doing the commentary, cause they'll probably say...ya know what, we have been really screwing these other teams over even their own commentator thinks so...I'm not saying Quinn should turn into stacey king but listen to a game where croshere is in quinns spot and it is night and day.

    I like Buckner. He is kind of like that crazy uncle that says off-base some things but is overall a source of knowledge and entertaining to listen to.

    He does provide a nice insight, that most play-by-play guys really don't in that he thinks like a basketball player. Most guys would say such in such made a bad pass, but Quinn will tell you, he thought his teammate was going to cut, jumped in the air and then got held up and had to force it. It's stuff like that that separates him apart, call it annoying, but I like it.

    After listening to NBA.tv coverage, he isn't nearly as annoying as some of the other guys that call for other teams. Cleveland's color commentator is really annoying

    I might have agreed with you a couple years ago, but he's grown on me. He's actually better than most color analysts. I've had league pass for 3 years now, and you'd be surprised at how bad some of the other teams broadcasters are.

    I thought he was really good tonight. Better than usual.

    I'm not a fan of Quinn, but c'mon, this isn't the night. He wasn't bad and Denari had some winners like ....

    "Pacers keep giving up paints in the point" ....

    "and Duke wins!"

    I love when Quinn is doing the games, I enjoy his insight and excitability but love the random funny stuff even more. It seems like once a game he and Denari aren't on the same page about something leading to some funny awkward moments.

    I've never gotten the disdain for Quinn. Always enjoyed the guy, never had a problem with him announcing games.

    I think as a whole, we've been pretty fortunate to have the quality of announcers both radio and TV in the past 15+ years.

    One thing I'd like to point out is Croshere is really good as a tv color commentator. I think we were all used to swapping back and forth from Clark and Quinn on different games, but I don't think we were ready for Croshere to be so good on his games that he makes Quinn look bad (in comparison).
    O'Brien has been fired! Yay! What took so long?

    Not at all true. He just calls it as he sees it. Really I feel a lot of times he's Pacer biased on some of his outlooks on a call.

    I'd say it's really more 70-30 in OUR favor.

    It's kinda odd that as much as we've agreed on most topics over all these years... I can't stand listening to Austin. I think he talks too much... maybe I'm wrong but it just seems to me that he comments on every single freakin play... it's like, "hey Austin... I'm watching this game on TV not listening to it on the radio."

    But thats just me and maybe I just never have liked AC anyway..... lol.

    Get League Pass and listen to a couple games of other guys. I'm not the biggest Quinn fan, but we've got it GOOD. Especially Denari.

    I don't know what you're talking about, I love Quinn. He's hard not to like. I actually plan on going to his appearance at the IMCU in Greenwood Saturday.

    Have to agree with those of you who realize how good we really have it. There are some awful announcers out there in the NFL, MLB, and the NBA. If you truly think we have it bad then you need to listen to some of these others.
