Re: Sam Huff

I know I might be the bad guy here but Larry Michael isn't at all bad. He's not worse than Herzog was. I can't say I understand anyone's dislike of his work. I see no reason to dump him.

I know Herzog quite well. Consider him a friend. Don't know Michael as well. When I have met him, I haven't been the biggest fan. That said, when it comes to on air work...I totally agree

I mean everyone dislikes him because he is not Herzog. That's about it. I know he sort of engineered himself into that job and got Frank canned but that isn't like common knowledge so I know it isn't that.

He's not bad at all. Some people will just always hate the guy because he replaced Herzog.

Re: Sam Huff

I am not a fan of Michael's work outside the booth - his cable shows are pretty painful "suck-up" shows. In the booth, on game day, I don't have any problem with his work. He will never be brutally critical, but then neither was Herzog.

Doc as a replacement would work for me b/c he really is unafraid to pull his punches while at the same time being an unabashed Skin's fan.

Probably time for Sonny to go also. With his drinking buddy gone, I expect he will move on in the next year or two.

Re: Sam Huff

Hey why not? He's the biggest homer there is and that's what team radio is all about.

I think Larry is OK during "down" points in the game. Like if he's calling an average play he does just fine. Its on the "big plays" where I've been underwhelmed by him. For the most part, he's been calling some pretty bad football; so its hard to really hold much against him... but I don't know. He's OK.

Could the radio really stand to have 2 huge homers like Larry and Joey T in the same booth? Should be a FCC regulation against it.

Truth be told, and Frank would never admit this, but Herzog wanted out. He didn't like the way it was done and he enjoyed hanging out with Sonny (not as much Sam). But he wasn't really enjoying it anymore and his disinterest was pretty obvious to those (myself included) who worked with him during the week

Re: Sam Huff

Sonny, Sam, & Frank were really good and fun to listen to. When Frank left something changed and Sonny & Sam didnt seem as good anymore. Maybe Frank knew how to bring out the best in them and make them look good.

I dont have a problem with Larry M, he's a solid play by play guy. I'm not sure I could stand Doc in the booth as his cliches get old fast. I dont think I could stand Joe T either. Maybe D. Green would be interested.

Re: Sam Huff

I think the reason I dislike Larry so much is because everytime I hear him talk, he acts like we are fielding a team of All-Pro's. And whenever I hear one of his calls when we have a big play (like on NFLN highlights/etc.) it just doesn't sound good for whatever reason. Either way, the only time I hear him is on the highlight calls, so it's not a big deal to me.
