> I haven't listened to a game on the radio in about 15
> years...

I LOVE listening to the radio call of the game while watching on TV or even at the game. The radio guys are much better at letting you know what is different about who's in the game or out, who's hurt, what's going on along the sideline, etc.

You will almost never hear a TV guy let you know that Freshman so-and-so just came in the game at cornerback and so "what is wrong with so-and-so" the starter and "Dear Lord can the freshman cover their WR", etc.

Sometimes the radio lets you know exactly why some play worked or didn't work because they are so familiar with the personnel and the plays.

You are really missing a lot of info when not listening to the radio call.

I will say this though....when watching on TV some of my friends watch for my reaction because the radio is often ahead of the TV. Some friends love to know beforehand and some hate it. I like to know beforehand so I can watch the particular spot or player were the action is headed.
