I'm sure we can all agree that Paul Allen is the most exciting play-by-play announcer in radio today. Even when the opposing team makes a great play, he still makes it sound exciting.

Hense my issue.

Because of the five second delay on "live" tv, I hear everything on the radio before it happens on TV. I will soon be making the decision between only watching the games on TV or only listening to them on the radio.

Does anyone have a way to watch the Vikes on TV and listen to Paul Allen at the same time without the delay?

I would just watch the TV. I mean, could you really stand listening to every game on the radio knowing that you could just watch it on tv?

IMO, it depends on the TV announcer. Some of Fox's (and most of CBS's) want to make me :pukeright: . BTW, Curt Menefee (Vikes preseason TV play-by-play) takes the mic for Vikes/Bucs tomorrow. I'll probably watch with the volume down.

That's why there is a mute button, you'd think they would have made one where you can just get rid of the announcers without drowning everything out.

There's no reason why there isn't least one radio station or internet site that could broadcast Paul Allen's commentary at a delay to match the tv. They already have the technology - it's the same as when radio stations delay live callers so they have a chance to bleep out any swearing.

They could do the same with the games!

Wouldn't work. The problem is that the TV is 5 seconds behind the radio. You would need to pause the radio for 5 seconds to get it in sync.

I stand corrected! You are absolutely right. Momentary brain freeze! My brain is having a hard time concentrating with it being Vikings Eve & all.

Just watch the game on TV. Then tune in to the post game show on the radio, they recap the big plays. And hey, it's a good show, they interview Tice and the players too.

I agree the post game is good but man I can't stand the the game call on radio.

Of course local anouncers will be biased but Allen and crew take it to a whole new level. Allens description of a 2 yard gain makes it sound like they just busted a 40 yarder.

And that takes me back to the dreaded AZ game where I would have sworn there was no chance that play would stand according to those clowns. In my opinion that crew really misses the boat on giving an accurate description of the game. Deffinately nowhere close to Ray Scott calliber of announcing.

Kind of reminds me of the occaisonal miss calls of the Twins John Gordon... " Base hit...no its caught! " Sorry, just can't get past that kind of crap.
