I'd like to know what idiot at Fox Sports signed Joe Buck to be the baseball commentator. All he does is drivel on and on about such useless trivia that my husband and I are ready to commit suicide by the end of the game. We absolutely suffered through the Yankee/Cubs game yesterday - his voice is an annoying and seemingly fake drone with barely an inflection. We ended up watching the game with the sound on because we could not stand it! Just blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

Can we get a decent announcer who actually announces the damn game? A little background on players is fine, but damn.

Fox Sports - Disrespct
United States

Watching the Browns game today starting with a minute silence in respect of those who died at Sandy Hook. What an insult to switch to commercials after just 10 seconds. Does Fox have no respect at all? Terrible made me feel sick at how shallow these programmers are.

In Game 7 of the World Series he took his already annoying hero worship of Bumgarner to an embarrassing level …. he rarely mentioned the Royals, continuing to adore Bumgarner no matter who was up at bat. Even my husband wanted to complain to somebody about it, the announcers IN PARTICULAR JOE BUCK were just obsessed with the Giants THROUGHOUT ...and it isn't sour grapes. The Giants are a great team and it was a great series …. even someone posted on Facebook that 'Bumgarner and Joe Buck, in a Relationship!" Funny that someone went to all that trouble but it has been so clearly Bumgarner Worship throughout by a supposed Professional Announcer. His millions in salary are really mis-directed.

When I watched entire world series or any Televised Fox sport prior when "Joe Buck" is the announcer I keep the sound off because "Joe Buck" is far too smart for me to listen to. However, three of the World Series games I watched with a friend who wanted the sound on because she needed the announcement of plays and players to help her understand the game. ( I should have put cotton in my ears) As I listened, His voice seems to sway towards the team with the momentum for the win or the team he wants to win. The other two announcers were not much of "relief announcers" either. I waited in the games that I "had to" listen to for pauses and the sounds of the game, and it never happened. I waited to hear trivia that was factual. That seldom happened. I waited to hear what the "team down" need to do rather then how great the "team up" was doing, and that also never happened. It is very apparent that his opinions are Joe Bucks and Joe Bucks only. A return to college to finish what he started would be in his best interest, I believe. His voice, his demeanor, his opinions would put him in a great position to become a lawyer for the people and then, he's on to politics!

Joe buck can't ever seem to hide his disdain for the royals; no one in kansas likes him. I'm not exagerrating, half of your viewers are either watching your channel on mute or throwing things across the room (And then Muting him). We're d*** sure not unmuting for commercial breaks. Fox, if you care about your viewers or your ad revenue for the world series, get him off our broadcasts. You dont have to replace him with Rex Hudler, but you should.

Where the heck did this RondeBar come from? He is a horrible announcer and I'm sick of his negative comments during our Hawks games. Get him the heck out of there!!!

Jo Buck should be barred from TV & radio, he is the most annoying TV "personality", I can see why Howie, Bradshaw, Michael and Johnson wanted him off the Sunday football show...I am watching the US Open with the sound off because I know sooner or later Mr. Dumbass will open his mouth with some mindless spew...I hope your contract with the PGA and MLB expires soon, or you get rid of this ###!

Watching the Redskins game. Why didn't your announcer report the obvious push by the giants causing a fumble. Why did they need to wait for the official guru to mention it. These guys are biased and always have been

I can't stand it any more we've turned the sound off
We need announcers who are neutral or unbiased not "homers"
Give us a break!

Joe Buck and John Smoltz couldn't do a worse job in the 2016 world series. It's amazing that Smoltz was a HOF pitcher, but knows absolutely nothing about baseball. The only thing Joe Buck knows is that his DAD was a great announcer. Somebody has to help Fox out with there personnel hires. Please contact me and I'll help.

Joe Buck is one of the worst anouncer I ever saw.
They need to get him off already.
They should bring Greg Maddox in as an announcer

I admit I am a diehard Cleveland Indian Fan but I see from the above posts that there are many other people who can't stand Joe Buck announcing the World Series or other baseball games.. He has been so one side with his commentary of the Cubs v Indians World Series. He has so many little cozy anecdotes to share about the Cubs, and when he runs out, he just repeats the same nonsense about Scharber, Solsist, Baez, Arrieta, etc. but hardly does the same for the Indians. Did he only research his home team players for these broadcasts? Whoever wins tonight, we are all winners, because we won't have to listen to Buck after this evening. Go Windians!

We need to see a change with the commentators for the Vikings games!!
Those two Buck & Aikman, especially Aikman are way too biased in their calling.
Either change them out or give the coverage to another network . . . sick of it!
Tell them to stay neutral or go and call for the home Cowboys . . . its obvious there anyway.
Don't you network execs care what these employees do on the job????
Last but not least . . after reading the previous comments . . looks like I wasted my time!!

Joe Buck ... you sold out. You risked any professionalism you could have hoped to have when you did the Brockmeir commercial, using your foul language. Just like I don't need to hear my clergy use foul language, I don't need to hear a mouthpiece on TV use foul language. Your father must be so proud. How much did you make for being so childish and using poor judgement, on purpose? You are a turn off and now, I can't watch or listen to you without waiting for you to curse and swear again. YOU RUINED IT.

Why is Joe Buch announcing the Yankee games...its very clear he is a yankee fan and thats all he talks about...makes no difference if they are batting on in the field...he should not be allowed to announce these games because he is so freaking bias...its sickening...and while I am at it he is terrible announcing golf tournaments...not sure what sport he is good at, if any...get rid of Joe...
