    Sean McDonough is the best ESPN has?

    Terrible play by play NHL man, and ESPN has him doing Stanley Cup games?
    He's got his head (as always) buried deep in a stat sheet instead of on the ice making his calls choppy, uneven.

    He's telling us shots on goals and game score that I can see on the graphic.

    Brutal call, brutal.

    Kenny Albert is the best hockey guy, but McDonough does the Finals too I think.

    Never was a huge fan of Bob Wischusen, but he was good on the hockey games I saw him call.

    I agree.... Kenny Albert has a perfect hockey voice. McDonough is simply terrible.

    It's funny.... execs don't take surveys on these announcers??? We're the ones that have to listen to this sh##. We would know it better than anyone.

    ESPN is just horrible in everything.
    Chris Fowler is twice as bad as McDonough in college football.
    Desmond Howard cant even speak correct English.

    Completely agree on Sean, not sure how he got this gig when others much better have called games all season. Plus he's a NYR homer - Easy to tell...

    ESPN cut down a lot of costs they do not want to hire NHL guys

    Bob Montgomery hated his guts when McDonough was first starting out.

    Lol.. maybe cuz McDonough plays for the other team. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

    I enjoyed Montgomery when he would announce as well.


    Him and Dick Mccauliffe would wear those hat helmets when up at bat.

    I grew up with McDonough and get a kick out of his constant complaining.

    Monty was great in a grumpy old man way. I fondly remember Carl Everett hitting a home run and doing the "giving props to God" thing with his fingers after he crossed the plate. Monty then went on a rant about how back in his day a player would get one in the ear for doing that, and why pitchers needed to start doing that again. Richard Dawkins would have been proud.

    I once met Sean just outside Boston Common, he couldn't be more obvious, he was hitting on teenage dudes.
    He seemed nice enough, just creepy.

    For sure, gayer than a gay bird.
