FOX Sports Guy Mike Goldberg’s Shanda: Bad Coverage, Twitter F-Bombs

UFC 140: Weigh In

Fox Sports announcer Mike Goldberg has created a shanda; not only was his coverage severely flawed but he punched back at critics on Twitter with foul language, dropping the F-bomb, calling one person a douche, and another an asshole. Given it was Twitter he could have been acerbic and witty by calling vicious critics “twits.”

Michael David Smith of NBC news points out that while the criticism on twitter was harsh and perhaps over the line, it wasn’t necessarily wrong. Apparently, his description of plays weren’t so spot on, he got players confused and lost track of all the stats that sports fans live to listen to.

While all this information can get confusing, Goldberg must have gotten the jersey number 15 of Vikings receiver Greg Jennings mixed up with the number 15 jersey of Golden Tate who plays with the Lions, and wasn’t even on the field. Smith writes, “It is easy to understand how the mistake was made, but it is hard to understand why Goldberg needs a roster to identify players like Jennings and Tate, who are their teams’ leading receivers.”

Smith thinks FOX should use someone with more experience with the NFL like Pam Oliver. Meanwhile, as some critics say Goldberg’s coverage was “the worst broadcast of a football game I have ever seen in my life, ” Goldberg should be doing his homework if he’s going to keep his job.
