No,he just babbles incoherently sometimes.Personally,I think he is going senile.
Link Posted: 9/12/2005 6:02:33 PM EDT
He has been pretty shitty for quite some time now. He basically just rambles on and on about God knows what. I started despising that man ever since the final minutes of Super Bowl 36 when he was basically calling Bill Bellichick an idiot for not playing for overtime and actually trying to win the game in regulation.

I have a friend who says "did you get that?" after every joke in a movie. Like he is the only who who got it, understood it, or saw it.

John Madden reminds me of him.

Captain friggin obvious.

There you have it. So to answer your question, no he's not "retrded" but his current level of impairment is similar to that of some clinical types of mental retardation.

Bring on Ditka and Chris Berman, Goddamnit!!!

has he ever been good?
he's been a shitty commentator with stupid random comments for at least 10 years, more like 15
Link Posted: 9/12/2005 6:23:00 PM EDT
Short answer? YES

"Alright now freeze it right there. You see that? You see that? He didnt catch the ball. Thats why they ruled it incomplete, and its bringing up third down. What he should have done, was grab the ball, riight here, and catch it."

Christ almighty, its even worse on when playing on xbox, its non stop madden talking. My roommate has it and for hours straight I hear "not a good play" or "they are gonna have to stop them from gaining yards" and similar common sense shit.

He's like the sick love child of Ted Kennedy and Harry Carey. I suppose he's got some Joan Rivers in there somewhere.

A have to give Madden his props for taking my boys to victory over Minnasota all those years ago. As a commetator, he has been sucking big time for about 10 years...his schtick is wearing VERY thin. At this point, I won't watch any game he's on. I quit watching Monday Night Football when he came aboard...I can go about 10 minutes before I just have to change the channel.

There is no such thing as a good sports commentator. By law they all suck.

I've seen him in person, up close a few times. He looks like he's about to have a heart attack at any moment. Always red faced and out of breath. He can barely walk a city block. Always has a blank, lost look on his face. I think he even drools a little. I swear, he looks retarded. And he's a rude son of a bitch.
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 5:54:32 AM EDT
He is a product of long lonely rides across the country in a bus, while sucking down vast quantities of MD 20/20.
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 5:56:01 AM EDT
The steel backing on worn out brake pads grinding against the rotors of my car sound better to me than his voice.

...and that's what that's about.
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 5:56:47 AM EDT
It seems to me he spends about 90 % of his time talking about stuff that a 4 year old would already know about football.

He spends 5% talking about individual players, their style of playing, which is sometimes sorta, kinda, almost interesting.

He spends 2.5% of the time talking about play selection, as in the NEXT play.
And 2.5% of the time talking about strategy, and behind the scenes stuff.

That last 5% is sometimes VERY interesting, and insightful. But the other 95% of the time.........

It's all I can do to watch HBO boxing with the volume on anymore.

Jim Lampley: "Do the yellow gloves make it easier to see punches coming?"
Larry Merchant (solemnly): "Great fighters do the things...great fighters do...which...makes them...great fighters."
Harold (shrieking): "Jim, I have it 8 rounds to 0, 80 to 72, Marco Antonio Barrera." (*Harold's cards are always blowouts no matter how close the fight is)
Larry: "I have it 1 round to 1, with 6 even." (*Larry always has it much closer than the fight really is, with multiple even rounds, I guess for dramatic purposes)

Madden never bothered me much, what really sucks is old Myron Cope
retired this summer after 35 years. If anyone has ever heard him call a Steelers game
they'd know he was the best damn commentator ever.
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 10:23:51 AM EDT
I shop at Ace and he's always following me around saying things like:

"That's real good paint right there. Quality paint. Paint you can paint with, I mean, REALLY paint with."

Plus...his fucking bus takes up like 22 parking spaces and I can't get out of the store with out him marking up my recipt with the correct "routes" to take to get to my car...or the "endzone" and he calls it.

I wish Ace would stop hiring senile old guys with bushy ear hair and go back to hiring hot 18 year old chicks in short-shorts.

I'd spend a lot more time there if they did.

WTF? Madden is a goof!

Only slightly. Harold Letterman is one of the worst boxing judges in the world.
