I agree, very annoying voice. Even my wife who couldn't care less about football was surprised to hear her, followed by a "she has an annoying voice" comment.

Luckily she isn't the regular commentator. I think she was just there because there was two games on for the opening MNF.

I like to adjust the balance on my surrounds so I get the nat sound in the rears and announcers very low (or off) in fronts.

Why were there 2 MNF games? Is that going to be a regular thing?

I couldn't hear anything over my 3 kids, anyway.

Been the standard opening week for a few years now. On earlier, one later.

I don't watch Monday night football, so I had to check out a video of hers on the net. I don't find her voice annoying at all, I'm not sure what the fuss is about.

People (such as myself) still do, and watch things that are politically incorrect, regardless of the huge Facebook backlash. Look forward to watching the Browns, and the Steelers every week, not concerned whatsoever with what people think.

The latest kneeling was one of many reasons I don’t watch. The over zealous celebrations after a guy catches a 10 yard pass my 85 yr old dad could have caught.
How about the brain injuries? Ever seen the X-ray of a 35 yr old guy that played center in pop warner, high school and college? Looks like a 70 yr old riddled with osteoarthritis.

Some football players could learn a lesson on class, grace and being humble from pro tennis players, Nadal and Federer.

I’m glad you are enjoying “your” sport. Today’s your day!

The problem with Ms. Mowins is that she seems to think an announcer needs to sound a certain way and, presumably though lots of practice, has developed a style that amounts to a veritable caricature of over-the-top sportscasting. A come-to-real-life Harry Doyle, if you will.

Considering the recent stupidity related to Serena, maybe citing a sport other than tennis for your example of class would be more appropriate?

Her affectations kinda remind me of some radio DJ's from the 60s-90s.

Close your eyes and imagine hearing, "Up next on the platter, we have the one and only... Curtis Mayfield and the Mighty Impressions..."

Sometimes I find her difficult to listen to and turn off the sound... other times, it doesn't bother me.

She's livin' her dream... I'm gonna let her have it and I'm not gonna complain about it.

No guilt here, they choose that life, and I watch/cheer them. Many members of my extended family have played, and are playing high school/college football.

What exactly is "Your sport" ? You mentioned Tennis, so you agree with the way Serena handled herself ?

No, just watch it on YouTube. Click where it says "watch on YouTube."

...indeed, and it's never been a shining example in my lifetime....from country club brats, to McEnroe, Nasty (Illie?), and more racket slamming examples than I can recall .

Of course, they are the exception....just like in pro football. Don't give a rat's butt about the antics...I just like football...played at a level I just can't comprehend....better than ever
