Larry is just a really smarmy smug guy. I don't care much for him.
Smarmy is a good word for him.

I could picture him selling used cars.

Re: Larry Michael really sucks

Put me down as someone that has no love for Larry. Like others said, the man is boring and his play calling is pretty shit if you ask me (too many mistakes).

Re: Larry Michael really sucks

I cant imagine getting any good questions on redskins radio since the dan snyder owns the radio station and the redskins control the content. Look forward to lots of "How does it feel to be a redskin?" questions because redskins radio will not be critical of the team. DS wont allow it.

Re: Larry Michael really sucks

He sux in print as well, because Redskins.com doesn't transcribe the vids, and there is no printed article!

That really sux!

At least if it was in printed form, everyone would really know how much L. Michael really sux!

Larry Michael was an executive within the company/station/whatever that owned the Redskins broadcast rights. He was the boss to the boss of Sonny, Sam, & Frank. He basically weaseled his way into the play by play role. The whole deal was pretty shady.

Re: Larry Michael really sucks

Who was the TV announcer that kept calling Mark Brunell 'Steve Brunell' at the beginning of last season?
That became a running joke between my friends and I for the entire season. Everyone became Steve, we even called into one of the radio shows and refered to Brunell as Steve on the air about 5 times only to have Larry Michael say "sounds like someone had too much to drink." It may have been the only time he made me laugh all season.

Re: Larry Michael really sucks

Larry is doing exaclty what he is told. Everyone needs to get off of him. I don't care for him much, god knows I rather be listening to Frank Herzog.

Snyder, (who I happen to really like) tells Larry what to say and Larry says it. How can you dislike the guy when his hands are tied?

Re: Larry Michael really sucks

i haven't really noticed how bad the radio crew has been. i used to listen to SS&F and turn the sound off on the tv when i had regular cable but now that i have Directv there is a couple of second delay. If I listen to the radio I know what happens before the play even starts on the tv. For those that have satelite radio, does the timing match up with satelite tv?

Larry Michael is a snake. He got to where he is by backstabbing. I've heard that he forced his way into Snyder's inner circle, even. The relationship between Snyder and Michael isn't what everyone expects it to be.

Okay, now we got something payne, if that is the case then there is a lot more to the story, but I think a lot of people are crushing him for the stuff on the surface, his reporting and not his past.

Re: Larry Michael really sucks

I think the deal with the Redskins radio team was this:

Sonny, Sam, and Frank had an aggregate age of about 230 years. While that meant they had spent (a whole lot of ) years building a passionate fan base, having three senior citizens as the voice of the franchise isn't a long term solution. And while Frank Herzog was hardly the weakest link in the booth (I won't argue with the case against Sam Huff at all), he also has the smallest fan base because of his role in the booth. So, by replacing the play-by-play voice, there will be a transitional voice for when Sam and/or Sonny need to be replaced due to age or infirmity.

Sucks to be Frank, sucks to be a listener. But a wise long term solution.

It is not only the fact that he asks shitty questions, I understand a part of that is due to Snyder(who I like most of the time too). Regardless he is sleazy and very boring, and he could still improve on that without pushing buttons. And I can dislike whoever I want, I really hate people who bend over and take it. Or in this case, people who see the money, run towards it, bend over, and willingly stick it up their ass.
