This may be a quick thread, but I'm curious: I've heard and read plenty about some spectacularly poor performances from TV play-by-play folks, both for Nats games and MLS games. From Jack Edwards to Joe Tutino, I hear nothing good about TV commentators (with the possible exception of Veronica Paysee's figure). Similarly, while the San Diego paper has a half-decent soccer columnist (Mark Zeigler), the rest of the paper is @#$%, so I'm subjected to the mindlessness of Graeme Jones of the LA Times (who was probably the inspiration for the BBC take on US Soccer reporting during the World Cup). So, for the balance of the thread, I'd love to hear about the good writers / broadcasters. Who really knows the game, and who really reports it well? What newspaper columnists do you wake up early for, anticipating their column? What TV commentators would you watch, even if it meant buying some expensive PPV? Does soccer have a hidden Sterling and Kay (New Yorkers will understand) waiting to be introduced to the masses? Any language, but let's keep it to American media outlets. And just positive comments.
