I can't believe NBC going to go for this. If he doesn't want to say the name of the team then he shouldn't be doing the game. I hate the Angels being called Los Angeles Angels (of Anaheim) but I know that is what the owner and his marketing team wanted so the announcers have to say it regardless if they like it or not. It will almost sound childish how he will probably think too hard to find a way to substitute the team name. He is already biased against the Redskins.

I give simms props . I was bagging on him as hard as any and I signed the petition to get him off broncos games. He got the message loud and clear that we were dick of it and instead of making a fuss over it he corrected the problem and called a good game.

I don't think Simms was rooting against the Broncos. He was rooting for the underdog which happened to be the Chiefs. He was rooting for a good game. When Denver played Seattle Denver was the Underdog and he called a very good game if your a Denver fan.

There is more to calling a good game than not exhibiting bias.

Simms is not capable of doing so.

I have always liked Simms more than most of the commentators. I guess I am alone on that one.

Dierdorf personally annoys me most of the idiots who comment on our games.

Now, as far as this Simms thing, I am thinking a drinking game is in order. One team who drinks everytime he says it inadvertently and one group drinking when he doesn't.

You have to take a shot every time he asks a question and answers his own question. It makes me insane when he does that.

So what would a Los Angeles Angel of Anaheim even be? An Angel from Anaheim, who skipped town to look over the good folks of Los Angeles?

In a nod to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, I propose we rename the Broncos to the "Denver Broncos of Boulder."

"“Will I refer to their nickname?” Simms tells Richard Deitsch of SI.com. “Look, I have already done it. It is a habit. I played for 15 years [for the Giants] and they were a bitter rival. There is a chance I could slip.”

Deitsch explains that Simms slipped several times last week, during the Buccaneers-Falcons game."


He slipped several times during a game in which the Redskins weren't even playing??

I'm sorry, Phil Simms is a terrible announcer. I couldn't care less who likes what teams or how obvious they make it, just don't make me want to carve my ears off when you talk. He's bad at his job, and the only reason I can understand for him still having such a prominent position is that so many other announcers are terrible as well.

All of that said, I hope every other word out of his mouth is 'Redskins'.

Props to Simms. If Washington were named the crackers,kykes,or ****ers everybody would be in an uproar. Use a racial slur for Indians and it's " well..uh..uh..tradition"

True. Every Irish guy I know loves drunken mutton chops flarin' old-fashioned-dukes wavin' violence.

But still. Maybe there's one out there who doesn't.

I think I read once somewhere that the NCAA says the Irish racism isn't a problem because nobody ever complained.
