Bad Idea

There are rumors afoot that Joe Buck could replace James Brown on FOX NFL Sunday. At first look it appears to be a great idea. Buck could toil anonymously in those early hours (when most of us West Coasters are either sleeping or checking the internet for fantasy football updates) instead of ruining FOX's game of the week.

But FOX actually wants Buck to do double duty as both the host of FOX NFL Sunday and the top game each week. This is just a terrible idea. How does FOX come to the conclusion that America is clamoring for more Joe Buck? You would be hard-pressed to find anybody in America who actually likes the guy. This is why networks need a department of common sense, chaired by a fan who can veto such moves.

Want to hire Deion Sanders and Shannon Sharpe to be on your morning show? Vetoed by the department of common sense.

Chris Berman to host the home run derby? Vetoed by the department of common sense.

Stuart Scott's contract to be renewed? Vetoed by the department of common sense.

Joe Buck to host the NFL morning show? Vetoed by the department of common sense.

You could even use it for the various websites.

Want to hire Skip Bayless? Vetoed by the department of common sense.

The Sports Dork turns in another rambling, incoherent column? Vetoed by the department of common sense.

This idea makes almost too much sense.

Buck is an ass-bag, living off the fruits of departed pappy's daddy bag.

I can't stand him doing baseball/football. It is always the same opening line "Hello and welcome to blah-blah, I'm Joe Buck {looks side to side but camera doesn't move and says} Jerk face one and Jerk face two in a minute" and then two seconds later the are in the frame. I can't stand him.

not that I'm a big Buck fan, but at least, and unlike Tim McCarver, he can pronounce the Latin MLB players names . . .
