Let's hear yours.

Mine, a woman calling a college football game (ugh, this VT vs. OSUlite game)

I thought a lot about this and it's not that it's a woman for me, it's that it's Beth Mowins calling games. For some reason, it's the sound of her voice that gets me, regardless of her knowledge of the game.

My sports pet peeve would be LaVar Ball. I can't stand that guy, can't listen to him speak. Sure, his son MAY some day be a great NBA player but he really isn't yet.

It's part of why I can't stand Dez Bryant or Odell Beckham, jr. Do something first. Maybe it's because I watched Jerry Rice and Marvin Harrison and Calvin Johnson go out and play at an outstanding level and be humble. My late father-in-law used to say "if you can walk the walk, you don't need to talk the talk".

So I guess that's my sports pet peeve, prima donnas who haven't earned it demanding for fans to acknowledge that they have.

Great thread, btw.

So many good ones.  How about:

"He has an ankle" or "He has a knee" when referring to an injury.

Or "He has a contusion". Just say he has a bruise.

Players making the "throw a flag " motion

replay in a college game of a play where the player gains a 1st down by 5 yards an they replay it so they can mark it back a half yard but it is still a 1st down

football games that take 4 hrs+

people complaining about the announcers. Just mute it and do the pbp yourself, you probably think you would be great at it anyway.

ineligible linemen downfield

prairie dog offense

fouling at the end of basketball games

thats just a few

That's why they call them Yell leaders. If they called them cheer leaders someone might sue them for not allowing women. Maybe that's why they wear those plain white uni's. No woman would be caught dead in those things. Actually on second though I don't believe they are "men".

Exactly! I've never understood how you can celebrate with such extravagance when you're getting clobbered. Celebrate a good play? Sure. High five, bump (or pump?) fists and go back to playing.

A victory dance complete with choreography, down 3 scores with 4 minutes left, grates on my nerves something awful.

Changing the rule on stopping the clock when running out of bounds in order to shorten the games but then just adding more commercials so the games are still the same length, just with more commercials and less football.

Players thanking some made up deity for allowing them to win the game over the players on the other team for reasons not entirely obvious to the viewer, but evidently the players on the losing team did deserve to be punished with a loss by said deity.

It always leaves me wondering what the losing team did to displease their maker.  But they never tell us.

I HATE the way, on TV coverage of football or baseball games, whenever there is a pop fly or long / incompleted - contested pass play the TV crew turns up the microphones to make the crowd seem louder and more contentious.  It's as though the crowd gets ten times louder with every pass play or fly to center... it's just a way for the TV coverage to make the play or game seem more exciting, when in reality it makes me want to turn the sound off.  Absolutely hate it.

If it weren’t for her obvious attempt to sound like a man, Beth Mowins is pretty good compared to a lot of the part-timers calling games during bowl season. She’s gotten better as an announcer.
Unfortunately for me it's just her voice. Is it unfair to judge her strictly based on that-perhaps. I will say that I think she's just as good, if not better, than some others who are calling games. However, listening to her comment and make the calls is like listening to a cat screaming after its tail has been stepped on or the scrapping of fingernails on a chalk board. Anytime she's on a broadcast I do the best thing I can which is turn the sound completely down and watch the game that way.

The refs blowing the whistle every 13.6 seconds on the floor. Its ruining the game.

The targeting rules. If its not a vicious decleater that could cause injury then keep the flag in your pocket for frick sake. And you should get two chances like unsportsman like penalties before being tossed.

The ME ME ME glory hounds and attention whores.

Related to officials.

It absolutely pisses me off when you are watching a game and a play happens RIGHT in front of an official, and that official let's the play go on and then all of the sudden there is a flag/whistle from 50 yards away by an official who not even in position to SEE the play calling a foul.

Happened the other night at my daughter's basketball game , she wasn't even involved in that particular play, and I just came out of my seat. I'm so sick of that darn. Just watch your own area .

So called “sports journalists” who really just have no clue! Just their Whiney ass opinions. Eric Bolin on the SEC Country App for example. Not a good writer/reporter, just a Whiney ass little kid who thinks his opinions really matter. Batesvilles own Cody McClure is another fine example of the “flood” of sports journalists who are just plain bad!

I hate it when the Hog game is coming on, at say 3:00pm, and the preceding game has 2 minutes to go at 2:45, and with all the time outs, commercials, etc., the game has to start on another channel at 3:00 because 2 minutes of game time took more that 15 minutes to play.

One of the great lines of the year came after ESPN pulled Robert Lee from a broadcast because of his name.  Some genius observed how wonderful it would be if there had been a Confederate general named Stephen A. Smith.
