Re: Less Huff In the Booth

I was in no way implying that Doc should replace Larry. Putting him in the booth along with him is what I was saying.

Re: Less Huff In the Booth

If Sam Huff has been calling Redskins games for as long as he has, then he should definitely be allowed to do so especially if it's something he likes doing. If he can call 12 games, then why couldn't he call all 20 of them?

Have you heard him recently?It is not a shot in anyway but just becuase someone likes to do something does'nt mean he should.

Although he has been in the booth, Huff has not called a game in years. We're not even sure that he knows that he is at a game.

He was awesome in the '80's - one of the best in the biz. But the last few years he's just produced a series of uneducated, ridiculous, or non sequitur comments. This is not what you want on the radio.

It's supposed to be a professional broadcast crew that covers a professional football team. It's not a comedy hour, it's not the Lavar and Dukes show, or the Mike Wise show. Their job is to do play by play announcing while providing professional analyst of the game. The whole crew needs to be replaced in my opinion.


Somebody who has excellent knowledge of the game and would be a great analyst is Matt Bowen. Not sure how he does on the air, but his knowledge and insight would be awesome.

I totally agree. Doc is the cliche king and that gets old fast. I dont have a problem with a 2 man booth of Larry & Sonny.

Re: Less Huff In the Booth

I like Huff in the booth. It reminds me how old the franchise is every time he tries to complete a sentence.

Exactly. I don't know why being on the radio should excuse them from doing a top notch job.

Most people feel that radio is a 3rd class entertainment citizen. The variance between Radio's quality and the other platforms(tv and online) is subjective but generally considered to be poorer. This leads to a varying degree of what people will stomach out of local radio broadcasters.

I personally like them all for what they're worth. If i want nostalgia, and full on coolaid, i listen to the radio. If i want information, i go to the internet. If i want to get drunk, i watch television.

Re: Less Huff In the Booth

Quite candidly there are few things I detest more about being a Redskins fan than having to listen to Sam Huff. And I'm generally not one to get all carried away with who the announcers are. But Huff is so beyond horrible it's repulsive. For over a decade Frank and Sonny and later Larry and Sonny have been covering for him far more than people realize. That it's radio is no excuse, there were many times when I (and am sure many others) had no other means but the radio broadcast to catch a game.

I totally respect what Sam Huff has meant for not only the Redskins but the NFL as a whole. He changed the game, no question about it. And it's naive to think that his aggressive play didn't at least have some impact on his "inabilities' today. But enought is enough. He 100% must go.
