Apparently, We're Not The Only Ones That Want To Set Fire To Joe Buck And Not P155 On Him To Put It Out

Arguably the worst move by any football-related organization this past offseason involved FOX Network's play-by-play savant Joe Buck. Buck was tapped to host that network's pre-game studio show, a job that he has been fucking up big time for the past two weekends.

What is actually happening FOX is sending the pregame studio to Buck, following him to whatever game he's calling that day. So it wasn't bad enough that we had to listen to Buck call the entire game, now we have to listen to him for another hour beforehand?

Buck reminds me of Kent from Real Genius, which would be forgiveable if he wasn't such a pompous ass to boot. Anyway, some of the reviews are coming in, and they're not really favorable:

[FOX's pre-game show] has basically become an hour of Joe Buck struggling to prove he's a fun guy and the rest of the panel trying to drown out the crowd.

When pregame partner Jimmie Johnson said the Bengals’ Robert Geathers was pushed (discussing the Trent Green hit from Week 1; you know where I stand on this) Buck [gave] Johnson a dismissive wave of the hand and a “yeah, whatever.”

Nobody would have blamed FOX if they had scraped the failed Joe Buck experience. It's not good. The problem is Buck himself. Not to say that Joe Buck has no personality, but his father's dead corpse has more charisma. The only thing saving FOX is that Shannon Sharpe is busy butchering the English language over on CBS.

[Joe Buck] raped all of my babies. I was just washing them off.

-Andrea Yates, from court transcripts

Being buried in popcorn would be too good for this asshole.

Jimmy Johnson recently told Joe Buck that Joe's no longer allowed to call Jimmy by his first name.

Oh, Adam Rank...Shannon Sharpe is just coping Micheal Irvin's schitck.

And I love your magical use of paint shop pro. He looks like Sally Jesse Raphel.

When did Canadians get a say in American football? This is preposterous!

If only Jack Buck had rumphed his wife instead, we wouldn't have to listen to this jag-off.

Loved the Andrea Yates quote. Few things are funnier than completely inappropriate jokes about horrible attrocities. Keep it up!

Sounds like we need to get the producers to tell Buck to stop touching himself.

I just want to touch his throat.

That was a disgusting article, and I'm sorry you had to read that.

I just don't get the appeal of watching a show in which a bunch of people are shouting in the background, so you have to struggle to understand the people who are yelling to try be louder. It's just senseless. I watch CBS's show if for no other reason than that it is in a freaking studio and they allow you to clearly hear people without random shouting.

TJ just asked Buck if he has Downs' Syndrome...

And Kent, stop playing with yourself!

I don't give a fuck who they put on this show. I'm not watching any thing with Bradshaw. He obviously lost his mine 10 years ago. At least I've read that there is no more of the dirty old men wagging their tongues at Jillian Barberie. That was disgusting.

Next time they go to Joe int he Booth, you gotta hope that he's sitting there naked with a bowl of Jello-O.
