She was bad. Very bad. I wondered who the crowd was booing when she finished, her or the Eagles. You shouldn't have to wonder about something like that.

Listening to the totally unbiased and unopinionated grandiose radio hosts of the vikings radio network. Those guys are GREAT!

I'll take either one of them over Dan Dierdorf any day.

They are both horrible and I'll throw Dan Dierdorf in there as well. Nothing is worse than Madden at a Brett Favre game though.

Tony Kornheiser has no business being in a broadcast booth.

He's horrible...On camera Mike Torico was cringing every time Tony went on one of his long boring rants last night. Last week Kornheiser had to talk about Favre every time Rodgers threw the ball, until Torico basically told him to shut up and let the kid play.

Yeah, but he's got the best comb over in the league!!!

If you look really close he's got like 3 strands of hair on the left side combed up over the top.

I literally turned the volume off last night he's so sickening!!

Madden and Dierdorf aren't too bad IMO, but they're getting old and can't quite see the game right and keep up with it. I cannot stand Kornheiser one bit though!

For whatever reason, ABC/ESPN seems to think you need 3 guys in the booth to have good commentary. Dennis Miller, Tony Kornheiser....these "regular Joe" commentators just don't work and 2 commentators are sufficient. One host commentator and one analyst/expert/former player.

And as for former player commentators....I absolutely loath Boomer Esiason!!!!!! Of all the NFL commentators there are (Kornheiser included), Esiason is the one I can't stand the most!

That whole MNF crew shouldn't be there. Tirico, Jaws, and Kornheiser. There has got to be better somewhere in ESPN that deserve a shot. I didn't mind the old SNF crew Theisemann got a little old for being as pompous as he was but it was no where near as bad as this debacle. Dierdorf doesn't belong in a booth either.

I thought Theismann was okay too.

I'd like to see how Strahan does. He always seems funny, yet knowlegable.

I've always like Kornheiser on PTI. But, he get's annoying on MNF.

The announcer that comes to mind as my favorite is probably Troy Aikman.

Agreed....PTI....I like him on there, but that's where he should stay.

Aikman is excellent! As is Johnston.

Aikman took too many shots to his head. An especially nice one was a shot from Jerry Ball on MNF against the Vikes. There really isn't much for decent announcers and PTI stinks.

Kornheiser is THE ABSOLUTE WORST on TV! I thought the Mike Patrick, Theisman and McGuire Sunday night crew was MUCH beter than this suckfest. MNF hasn't had much of anything good in a broadcast since Melissa Stark left!!!!! I don't mind Madden though (except when he's doing a Favre love fest I agree).

Aikman is pretty good except I don't like him on the Cowboy games and that Joe Buck he's with is only one half step above Kornheiser. Can't stand Dierdorf, never could. Totally agree the Vikings radio guys are AWFUL too, if I hear that dork say "the AFOREmentioned (insert player name here)" one more time I think I might crawl through my car radio to ring his neck!!!

Kornheiser, should just stay on PTI (I think he is great there).

Theisman was the worst, I couldn't stand watching a game where he was one of the commentators.

I love madden, I can't wait for each sunday to roll around.

Yeah they are bad. but when the thanksgiving game gets boring Madden starts off on his three legged turky bit with the yellow marker. I find it hilarious. I wonder if he does that even when the game remains exciting. I don't think I can remember a thanksgiving game that didn't get boooorrringgg. Maybe it's the chemicals in the turkey? Anyway I still think it's funny stuff. And no I do NOT miss the coaches clicker. That back and forth running of the clips and marking up the sceeen till you couldn't see anything anyway was annoying. And you missed a few plays while he did that mess. Also after a few lines he no longer made any sense. Great coach but lousy color guy. He did take a rag tag team and pummle the Vike in their last attempt at a Superbowl. Ouch.

You guys love Madden?? If I have to hear him explain stuff about football I knew when I was 3 years old again, I will scream. Al Michaels is about as exciting as watching paint dry as well.

I think a couple of those guys on the Vikings radio network are trying to do Jesse Ventura imitations. Maybe MNF should get Jesse?

    • I'll be getting out again on Tuesday with the bow. It has been very hard finding time to get out this year, between work and a 4 month old at home. Last time out I spent 12 hours in the blind and saw quite a few birds during the middle of the day. Had multiple times where I thought it was going to happen but the Toms wouldn't commit 100%. Making a small adjustment this go round and hoping things come together.
    • Was thinking for hunting and maybe put a plow on it to use at my place up north. Wouldn't be my main driver. Was thinking around 15K for budget but that was before I did much looking mostly on line so far. But might step up in price for the right rig. And a lot of that would depend if I liked the newer V6 engine and 5 speed auto or 6 speed trany and less miles etc. Just by looking at dealer prices on line I would think a guy could find a pretty nice late model for around 20 or less. I think if I bought a nicer later model I would drive it more as they look like they have made the interior a lot nicer and more comfortable than the older ones. On the other hand if I ran across a real clean older one with the in line 6 and not to many miles for the right price that would be an option to. The drawback to a newer shiny one it might take a while before I ran it down the brushy trail.

    • Our MN hunt this year was just about as easy as they come.  Sutty and I arrived at different times, he was late, and set up on opposite sides of the field as planned.  I could hear the birds gobbling in the valley below in their usual spot, and they sat there a long time in the cold.  Sutty couldn't see because he was on the back side of a finger of trees because he didn't want to spook anything out since he was late...  Eventually they got down and proceeded to sit on the far hill for a while longer.  I could see a 6 or so males, but suspected most were jakes, and a few hens.     Just when I was getting tired of waiting, about 8:30am, I saw one gobbler enter the field and walk straight towards Sutty's position.  As the bird got in front of Sutty, another nice gobbler came into the field.  I called to him but he wanted nothing to do with me.  Sutty shot the first bird, and the second one didn't know what happened.  Of course Sutty came running out of his blind and scared off the second bird that he didn't even know was there.      Sutty just bought a new house and had to head home asap to help his wife with packing things, and his daughter didn't seem too interested in shooting her own bird this year.  Now that she saw how ridiculously easy it is she probably won't be interested next time either.      I figured I should get to the edge of the field the birds were coming out on, and as I started moving my blind I bumped some hens that hadn't yet come up all the way out of the valley.   I finished getting my blind in place and sat a while, but it seemed we had scared the remaining birds out of the area, or maybe they were just laying low out of the wind.  In any case I went to get some lunch and let things settle down for a while.     After a couple hours of eating and casting for fish that weren't there, I decided I would head back up to sit in my blind.  Just as I reached the top of the hill to see into the field I saw three big gobblers walking across the field.  I ducked down and ran around the edge of the field out of their view to get closer.     I crawled up to about 10yd from the field edge, as far as I could go without being seen, and started calling.  They liked what they heard, but wouldn't commit right away.  After maybe 10 minutes of me cutting and purring, and all three of them strutting and gobbling out at 60-70 yards they started coming.  I couldn't see them well through the brush I was behind, and they didn't want to walk through it.  If I was at the edge of the field I could have shot them, they were within 40yd.  They proceeded to do a big arc along the field edge back to where I had just walked.     After a couple minutes of not seeing them I picked up my call, they gobbled, and then I saw them marching in where I had just walked.  When I last saw them going this direction I had shifted to face that way, I was now facing the tree I just had my back against, which put my butt in a thorn patch and the barrel to one side of the tree.  The birds started walking to the other side, so as they got behind the tree I eased the barrel to the side they were going to come out on.  They started coming up the other side back to the field they were just in and were too close together for a shot.  Finally one eased out in front and I let him have it.  He tipped backwards and rolled back downhill, and didn't even kick until I went over to grab him.  27 yards with the range finder after the fact.       Both birds turned out to be very nice old birds with long spurs.     Sutty's weighted 22lb 4oz, 10" beard, 1 3/16" spurs.  I believe this is his best turkey to date.     My bird weighted 25lb 8oz, 10" beard, 1 1/8" spurs.  My best turkey by weight and age.     Sutty and his bird.        Me and my bird.  I shot from one of the trees above this rock I think.      
    • Got it done in mn.  More to come when I get home.
    • Go to a license agent and buy one for your desired season. Season C, is on process thru May 2nd. Season D, is May 3rd thru May 9th. Season E, is May 10th thru May 16th. Season F, is May 17th thru May 31st. Season F also allows anyone with an unused tag from earlier season to hunt this period as well.   Hope this help PF.  
    • How do the over the counter licenses work this year? I missed last season but would like to get out this year even though I didn't apply for the lottery.
    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
    • I might have to get out and test drive a few and figure out what I like and don't like. Definitly not buying new so Ill narrow it down a bit and then wait for that cherry to show up.
