Bryant Gumbel Out As Play-By-Play Voice For NFLN

Chalk one up for the fans....at last!  While ESPN could obviously care less what we think of the filth they protrude on Monday Night Football, the NFL Network, on the other hand, won't let Thursday Night Football go the same route.  The League and Bryant Gumbel have agreed to part ways after two unlistenable years for Gumbel behind the mic.  Nevermind the fact the Greg's brother had no experience calling sporting events, it appeared all too often to me that Gumbel had just as little experience watching the game as well.

"I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to call NFL Network games the past two years, which was a new experience for me," Gumbel said in a statement. "But we've agreed that we'd all be better served going in different directions."

It's the fans that will be better served, better served by someone calling the game of football that knows what the hell football is about.  Gumbel, while thought of a someone knowledgeable about sports, showed his true colors, and folks, they weren't pretty.
