My vote is yes.

The guy reminds me of a little dweeb.



Shut up, Don.

His nc call when hunter caught the game winning pass was horrible. I'd rather hear baby's scream then listen to him.


I simply couldn't disagree more

The way he yelled "Touchdown, Touchdown, Touchdown" was terrible. It was as if he was trying to keep his voice from cracking so instead it sounded like growling

Don is better than Orange in the end zone.Having said that I like Pete and think his color commentator had more mouth than a poor mule

Qualk is a lot better than Don


Re: Is Don Munson the worst announcer in the history of the world


Posted: Apr 22, 2017 9:17 PM
 

Qualk is the worst ever. That was a spinning curve ball ??? What the heck


Re: Is Don Munson the worst announcer in the history of the world

Don isn't the best but Qualk has to be the most annoying

Honestly how can we live with ourselves in a world where an announcer has the gall to say run and hit rather than hit and run.

We're gonna have to do something about this.

2019 white level memberbadge-donor-15yr.jpg


Yes if he's going to be a baseball commentator,

he should at least get very basic baseball terminology right.

isn't every hit a hit and run?

Technically it is a run and hit.

I think he has improved and most certainly better than orange in the end zone

Lol. You're right, but when a pinch runner came in for beer last week he said pitch runner. Pitch batter, pitch runner etc.

He's well spoken and doesn't come across as a redneck.

Those are the goals for his role. Play by play announcers should have neutral accents and have a decent command of the game. Don fits that description well.

Don may not be Jim Phillips, but he is a far cry better than a LOT of the announcers out there. In just the past few weeks, in watching/listening to Tigers on ESPN3 we've had to endure some REALLY annoying coverage guys; 'won't mention names (don't know most), but I'll take Don ANY DAY over the guys covering Florida State, Carolina and at least one more who was so nasal & annoying I had to turn the audio off!

Seriously? I would rather have someone who loves Clemson

like Don than some hack that doesn't even know our history or much less been a part of it.
It's come to this? Have you really ever heard some of the announcers at other universities? Don is very good compared to some of those morons. Some of you would ##### about the roads being blocked if it was raining gold nuggets.

I find Tigernet dweebs who think they sound smart when they complain about announcers to be a lot more annoying than Don Munson.

Could not agree more. They must not have much of a life if Don Munson can upset them that much.


Michael Kay is the worst, well except for that lady

No but I definitely prefer Yanity***

He'll always be the voice of Clemson sports to me.

Yannity was fine and so is Don. The administration wanted Don and most people are fine with that. When someone says Don is the worst announcer ever I really wonder if there is a hidden agenda.


I beg your pardon! Jim Phillips will always be the Voice of Clemson Sports

Seems there are many supposedly Tiger fans that just have to find negative things to say about players, coaches,or anyone associated with Clemson. This bothers me a lot more than Don Munson! I truly believe Don loves our Tigers! Just Sayin!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yanity will always be my favorite, I was too young to remember Phillips. But I think Don does a good enough job. But whoever said he's better than K'waulck, or however it is you spell his name, is 100% right. He tries way too hard to be cool.


The geniuses on this board were brutal to Jim Phillips

right up to the day he died.

Within days, many of the same people who called for his head were talking about him as if he were a candidate for sainthood.

2019 purple level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg

I think the reason for the consternation over Munson


Posted: Apr 22, 2017 9:00 PM
 

Is because a new position was created specifically for him. Several people were let go in a hasty manner to make room for Don and his new job.

So when something that drastic happens, it must mean the guy who they carved out this gig for must be amazing and well worth it. But we've found out that he is at best average.

I think he was the guitarist for Flock of Seagulls in his younger years. Should've stuck with it!


don't listen to him if he is that bad...

you can always listen to the opponent's broadcast. Very simple solution

Nothing against him as a person but he is not my favorite Clemson Tiger announcer. Seems a little fake at times. Not Jim Phillips real and natural. JMO.

In the $3 bottle and the $30 bottle. They both get he job done. And, usually I'm drinking beer anyway. (Watching tv).


Don isnt the best or worst....


Posted: Apr 23, 2017 9:28 PM
 

Either Don has grown on me or I just don't care any more. The best voice we have calling Clemson games right now is Tony Castricone. I wish he were the complete voice of Clemson Athletics. With that I also know that Don is sitting in the chair because that's who Dabo wanted behind the football mic & its grown into what it is now.

For those that don't think Dabo controlled that don't understand just how much power Dabo has. Like the spring game being on ACC Network Extra instead of ESPN, 2 or U. My suspicions were that Dabo wanted it online to try to get more butts in the seats. Why did I think that? Leading up to the game in every interview Dabo kept saying how important it was going to be to get the qbs the reps in front of a gameday like crowd.

How were my suspicions confirmed? In between games Don had a call in show (aweful idea) & a couple of folks were complaining about the games being online & 1 mentioned "just like the spring game". Don commenced to say the baseball was online because of the ACC contract & then he said "But the spring game was not on major tv because Dabo didn't want it out there nationwide".

Don's Dabo's mouthpiece.

The man is ALLIN and I think he does a fine job. I'm not sure why people get upset when someone is doing a job well. I'm sure there are better ones out there, but I've heard some of the homers at other venues, and no way would I trade Don for those clowns. Don adds a lot of info to the broadcast. Details that are pretty interesting IMO. Whiners gonna whine I guess. For me - I just keep enjoying the games, and am thankful that Don is there to make it even more interesting.
