There can't be a worse announcer than the Tampa guy

The 6th race was as bad as it can get.

Im auto trained to reach for that mute button when they show a tampa race. I Hate that Tampa is on TVG, its one track i dont follow or play. I guess i should thank my lucky stars i'm not subjected to Oaklawn also.

The new Oaklawn guys does a good job in my opinion.

I agree, my comments were based on having to watch a track i dont follow or play rather than a shot at the announcer. If i could switch Tampa for Oaklawn i'd do it in a heartbeat.

You hit the nail on the head with that.

I think the jockey on #4 heard his call and thought the race was over 50 yards from the wire.

Another Grunder blunder?He's getting pretty erratic.The way Tampa plays anyway,I wouldn't call anybody a winner at the 16th pole.No matter how big the lead.They can die on a dime.CJ you've been a Grunder fan for a while!

lol they all can get on your nerves after a while.

Tampa isn't that bad to me, although he'll say just about anything in the stretch regardless of what is happening.

The new Gulfstream hostess. Not sure what her accent is but it is rough for some reason, and she goes on and on about pedigrees in claiming races.

Laurel... - For some reason their volume is 3X THE NORMAL VOLUME!!!! of everywhere else, and they get me at least once a day.

Thanks for the reality check - I tuned into the 6th race stakes today on my computer and ended up racing for the volume control; I was wondering "what on earth was I listening to at that volume?" No kidding!

What would you consider "that bad" then?

Wow - just watched the replay. Drawing away, er, make that overtaken in the deep stretch - whatever! And it didn't look like there is the excuse like Laurel's main track where there are two different finish lines and you sometimes see horses and jockeys forgetting that they need to go to the second one.

We have this thread every winter I think....Grunder is the worst announcer at a mid-level or better track, but I find him entertaining in a campy way because he's just so cartoonish and inaccurate.

I mute pretty much every race i watch on the computer, the announcers are awful in every part of the country.

As mistakes go, this one was right up there. And when World Flash was "drawing away", he actually was sharply lugging in.
