True stuff Irish, but every team's local broadcasters are homers


I grew up listening to the Reds during the Big Red Machine era. Total homers on TV and radio. Al Michaels was radio voice of the Reds for awhile and then Marty Brennaman who took over in '74.

Notable homers that are beloved by fans:

Vin Scully, Dodgers
Harry Carey, Cubs
Jack Buck,Cardinals
Red Barber, Yankees

Biggest homer ever

Johnny Most, Celtics

I've not saying the Rockies TV or radio guys belong on this list, but being a homer is part of the job when the team is your employer. They are not part of the problem.

I do like the radio guys especially Jerry Schemel.
