MNF has sunk to a new low

I used to watch during the years, but now they have that " fingers on the chalkboard" women that I can't stand. She did college but was a bust, now on mnf. Oh god, please tell me this won't go on.

Most of the MNF audience is older males who really don't want to hear a female "expert" who has never played the game, unless it is from the sidelines in a support role.

I will turn off a broadcast if the announcer is female (especially butch sounding).

The only support role an older males wants is if she is doing the split on the sideline.

Agreed, drives me nuts! I like an announcer that has true perspective on the game of football, not someone who has been a lifelong spectator. PC movement hard at work.

I don't mind a woman broadcaster (most of the play by play folks never played) at all, but this one?

It is her voice!

It is at an octave and treble that makes dogs leave the room.

Her voice is horrible, I'm glad I didn't watch the game.

Brian Griese was terrible especially after Stafford got speared by a defenders helmet & briefly left the game. He said it was a good hit. She very mildly disagreed, but the hit was a shining example of what the NFL is trying to get out of the game. I almost felt sorry for Patricia, that was as ugly as it gets for an opener at home.

The OP title is what I thought when I turned the game on and heard the announcers.
So nasal sounding and a lot of the time you couldn't even hear them because of the back ground noise.
The second game was not quite as bad. At least Witten has recent experience but his newness to the booth really showed IMO.

Her fingernails on the chalkboard voice still sounds better than my guitar playing.
