OT - Anyone else hate Steve Young on MNF???

I can hardly bare to watch with Steve Young providing colour. On the TD called back in the first half, he was a pompous ass insisting how once the 2nd foot came down the play was over (it was overturned).

Next he suggests that the Raiders need to shut off half the field for Jamarcus Russell to make things easier. INT and Young comes up with "thats why you have to be able to use the whole field. DBs see your eyes only looking one way and makes the pick easy."

Raiders decide to go for it 4th and 15 and he doesn't like the call. Pass complete for the TD and its a gutsy call and he likes it.

Idiot.

He was right about that TD, no way that should have been overturned. BUT I agree he has been generally unbearable. This is kind of a dumb complaint but he just has a really annoying voice that is not suited to being color. Especially since he sounded so much like the play-by-play guy. The whole time it just sounded like the 3 of them yelling over one another. Horrible announcing.

the rules are that regardless whether you have control with 2 feet down, if you are catching the ball while going to the ground, you must maintain control through hitting the ground. The WR did not do this.

It's his arrogance about knowing the rule (and turning out that he doesn't know it) that really gets to me.

but I thought out of that team Young was actually the most tolerable. Golic and Greenberg seemed confused on most of the rules/calls and didn't provide the intelligence you would expect from a national crew. I agree it sounded like they were yelling over each other, I don't see that team being assembled again...

I thought he sucked as well. I don't much care for that entire booth. Greenberg is too whiney, Golic is an idiot, and Young just didn't come off well to me. Maybe he'll get better with a little more experience.
