I Can't Stand Paul Azinger


Recommended Posts

I think he's overrated as well. Seems the majority of his comments are focused on choking, on "hearing footsteps", as if viewers were unaware of it. His latest revelation that pro golfers choke for two reasons, money and prestige, is simplistic and insulting. They're not robots, they have individual lives and issues and limitations. With the Players upcoming and the famous 17th hole, we'll sure to be bombarded with the same shallow commentary over and over and over.... He couldn't carry Millers jock, on the course on in the booth.

Azinger uses a foreign language when he announces. Some of his words do not make any sense and trying to be cute with adages that aren’t appropriate proves he’s just plain bad.  One of his quips “he has to legislate this putt”. What the hell does that mean? “Sustain what he has found”. I find him annoying.  Just today he said there were some birdie holes coming up that weren’t “gimme” and not easy pars.  What?  I turn it off when I hear him announce.  Does he pay the network to work?  In my business he would be put on a performance plan.  Get rid of him.

The mute button is very helpful.

Azinger reminds me of the stain in this commercial.

  PA does seem to rub people the wrong way, but for the most part, I think he is decent. To me, the 'fawning' JN does over certain people really can nauseate me.

Wanted to see if anyone feels the same way I do.  I think Azinger lacks charisma and has a nasally, annoying voice.  His fundamental tone is one of sarcasm that isn't redeemed by any wit or original insight into the game.

He grates on me to the point where I will being passing on some NBC telecasts this year.  I hate to mute the programs, because I really like rest of the NBC team. 

Here's my list of who should have replaced Miller as lead color analyst:

Peter Jacobson

Roger Maltbie

Notah Begah

David Feherty

 

I AGREE HIS PERSONALITY IS DULL, HIS RECORD GREAT, BUT I NEED A COMPLETE PLAY BY PLAY ANNOUCER

I'm not a big fan of Azinger either, but his job is not to be the play by play announcer. He's a color commentator (the guy who just adds stuff in from time to time). Guys like Nantz and Tirico are the play by play announcers.

I wonder what the players think of Zinger's commentaries?  

Sure, but it doesn't matter. They're not the audience.

They most certainly are part of the audience. You think they don't know what he's saying?

Sorry, no, they aren't. Even when the coverage is on, it's typically on mute or you can't hear it. And even if they all watched it, every round, they're such a tiny % of the audience it's negligible. Ergo, "they are not the audience."

Oh, they know. They're just not really the audience.

"Yes they are the audience."

"No, they aren't the audience."

"Yes they are the audience."

That wasn't what I asked and your answer is irrelevant.

I asked what the pros thought about his commentary.

    • From all I have read, any known long term effects of an mRNA vaccine manifests within the first two months. It does NOT affect genetic makeup since it never enters the nucleus.  Conditions/effects that manifest over longer periods of time are caused by repeat use at some frequency that builds up incrementally...like.. tobacco or your garden variety narcotics, lead, arsenic, etc. 
    • I read the whole thing. I am thinking a "whole enchilada" badge should be awarded!   Seriously, the experience is playing in a national NCAA championship. While D3 is not as competitive as D1 streaming live on the Golf Channel, it is still the national championship. While no one wants to see their kid card a double or triple to start their round, it is still the national championship.  Oh, and it is competition golf. Everyone knows what they signed up for. The player seemed to accept his fate, and the coach should know better. Sorry but even if you don't have a shot of advancing or winning, you still follow the rules and protect the field.     
    • I said in my post, let’s start simple with 2-years.         You call it stubbornness, I call it prudence. Others disagree with “pretty damn effective” against current variants, let alone those to come.   It’s also worth noting that different vaccines have different levels of effectiveness.   Where Do COVID Vaccines Stand Against the Variants? Drug makers scramble to adapt vaccines to coronavirus variants before they outwit our immune systems.     Again, your personal opinion. And yes, I read and understand the science as well.   Not necessarily. Oftentimes it was my duty to actually put people in harms way…    
    • Of course.  Almost all of us strive, through research and training and other methods, to stay alive.   Military or not.  But in the military you must be willing to put yourself in harm's way to protect your country.  The result could be your death.  When you go in you know this.
    • Debunking mRNA Vaccine Misconceptions—An Overview for Medical Professionals mRNA vaccines are designed to withstand many variants.  It is literally impossible to say what variants will arise though. To the third, why would that matter on whether you take it or not? If you take more, you take more.  I'd assume the first two questions are the key for you, the third is more curiosity.  Would the third be a make it or break it moment?  If anything, it could be yearly.  But the more people vaccinate, the less likely it is we'd need to take more.
