Default Doug Flutie haters...the BC game is going

I heard NBC is giving us a choice. We can watch the BC game on NBC with the usual crew (Doug Flutie) or we can watch it on NBCSN with a totally different crew announcing....not sure who it will be but itís got to be better then listening to Flutie talk about his Hail Mary pass again.

As long as itís not on the damn ACC network. Which, I guess I should thank. Since, I got my feel of Cobra Kai in from signing up for one month on YouTube tv.

How about just reassigning Flutie for a difft game. Why bend over backwards to accommodate him?

What are they gonna do, put him on a Premier League match? NBC doesn't do other college football games there is nowhere to send him. I'm sure his contract has him on every ND home game anyway.

TBH, one of the things that turned me against Flutie was a few years back he mentioned giving a pep talk to Navy the night before they played ND. Thatís totally unprofessional and NBC shouldnít have let him do that. Ever since then, itís hard not to see the bias in his critiques of ND.

I do think it is strange for NBC to try so hard to be neutral (which usually ends up looking like bias against ND). I don't really understand it.

When you watch nonconference games on the SEC network, or Big 10 network, etc., it is generally a homer broadcast for the in-conference team. The way NBC does it is awkward, especially with always insisting the color guy is from an ND rival.

It is the ND network. Just treat it like that. It should be like a recruiting pitch for ND every game.
