The failure of Gus Johnson, soccer announcer proves something | SB Nation
And that something is that we want GOOD announcers (or at least competent ones). It's not that American don't like American announcers. We don't like crap announcers. Nobody likes crap announcers. And Gus Johnson was quite crap. Maybe one day he won't be, but he most certainly shouldn't be using the Champions League final as a training/learning exercise. Better late than never to stop this trainwreck. How about FOX go and rescue Phil Schoen from the special hell that is Ray Hudson over on beIN?
