I was lurking on the Padres message board and came across some fans complaining about Hawk. Apparently these fans had to watch the game on MLB Live or some venue where Hawk and DJ were the announcers. Anyway, it's kind of funny.

I would be pretty mad too if the announcers said "HE GONE" every time a White Sox batter struck out, but thankfully I'm a White Sox fan so I don't have to worry about it! :D: Hawk and DJ = totally biased and I LOVE it!

MLB Extra Innings broadcast the Chicago feed for all three games. It was awesome! :bandance:

I'm amazed at how well-behaved people on that board are. I'm so used to the level of childness witnessed on the Cub MLB forum that I figured all the MLB forums were that way. Funny comments about the announcers but insightful and not your typical "these guys suck" or "worst announcers ever" followed by a bunch of cursing.

You should hate Hawk if you like the other team. He's the ultimate homer. Why would you like him? I love Hawk, but I'm a White Sox fan. As already said, I'd be absolutely livid if I had to hear "He gone" everytime our guys struck out. Too bad for them, great for us. I love a Hawk broadcast.

On a related note, as an XM-er, I had the Padres' radio guys. I liked 'em. A pleasant change after the snooze-inducing Rockies' announcers.

I wonder what those fans thought when SD got into a "strike em out, throw em out" double play? He Gone.......................and HE gone. That had to drive them nuts.

i am glad we are done playing them for awhile so i dont have to listen to them.

Yeah, that's why you're happy the Pads don't have to play the Sox for a while.

The Padres suck and are overrated. When they beat the Sox, I'll take their fans' craptalk seriously.

"But, overall they say very good things about San Diego and Petco Park. Showed how Padres recognize the Marines and just put Mud's mug on the screen and said he is very funny."

There's one Padre fan who didn't consider Hawk [or DJ] to be Lucifer. :cool:

The funniest thing is each team's fan take it personally that the Sox are called "good guys", as if Hawk is automatically designating their teams bad guys and trying to dis them. I saw someone post how mad he was because his team "were the bad guys"

I agree, I've been stuck with these homeboys all weekend and between them reading insipid emails from Aunt Bessie in Calumet City and referring to the Sox as "good guys" it's torturous.
:roflmao:

Honestly, I think there is a thread like this on every team's board after we play them. That's one thing I love about Hawk. If I were rooting for the opposing team, I'd probably hate him, too.

Maybe, but would you question his sexuality based on his "schlocky shirts?"

They DO read some pretty horrible emails. (and way too many of them too).

Well,if they think the Sox announcers are bad.They should listen to CUB announcers (TV or espically radio!).If they think Hawk is a homer,they should listen to Santo and Huges harping about the Scrubs when they play the Pads.

Or listen to the Braves announcers.So boring,they put coffee to sleep!:rolling:

Is Jerry Coleman still doing Padres games??:dunno:

I always loved his "Coleman-ims" ( i.e."You can hang a star on that play
or "Ohhhhhhh,doctor!)."Baseball Digest once printed a list of them.
My favorite was "The left hander is throwing up in the bullpen".:D:

Something about So-Cal baseball announcers.They're good in their own right.

Jerry Coleman-I don't hear Padre games often.But I heard him from time to time.And he's exciting.
Vin Scully-You can't think of Dodger baseball with remembering that voice!
Dick Enberg-Ex-Angel announcer.Must have been great when he was with them.

From the Pads board. Here is one fan who has a good head on his shoulders:

"HELLO!!!!!!!!!?!?
And "GOOD NIGHT NOW!!!!!" Is a lot more professional?

Padres fans like us bitc.hing about other homer announcers is incredibly hypocritical.

These retards should realize that they're gonna get the other team's announcers. Our announcers should not have to nor be expected to accomodate them. When I listen to other announcer's I expect nothing short of what Hawk and DJ say about the Sox.

Maybe they'd just be amused at how lame they are. There's Hughes and his sportscaster-school voice with the phony EMphasis on CERtain syllables as he waxes poetic about how hunky-dory and swell it is to be Cub lemming, and then of course poor Santo who should be doing something else for his own good ("Ohhh, noooo...").
:rolleyes:
