Originally posted by Triple Preperation HI was in no way suggesting a team of Kelly & Cole. Two play-by-play announcers will always suck, no matter who they are. However, moving Kelly into the lead announcers role and putting Cole backstage would be a winner to me. I think Cole does fine interviews, considering it is his job to totally look stupid in most of them.
Didn't Kevin Kelly do play-by-play on Heat, back when it first started?
More to the point, didn't he suck? I seem to recall that being the general consensus at the time. But I'm getting old, so senility is a possibility.
I could wonder if there's a reason why there's only one even halfway decent pbp man on the WWF's payroll... but with all the HHH "glass ceiling" crap going around, the last thing I need to do is start looking at Good Ol' Jr. and accusing him of holding down talent.

Originally posted by Triple Preperation HAs bad as I thought the Smackdown! announcing was, Jakked was 10 times worse. They call on that show has never been good, but tonight it was just plain pitiful.
I think I would rather listen to the Spanish Announce Team then any combo I have heard this week.
I'd rather listen to Tajiri just say "SRBANOKA" over and over.
I don't think Austin/Rock being last sends a bad message to the workers. Both men are very well respected backstage (even if most may disagree with Austin's actions) and, the fact of the matter is, they're the two big money draws.
