    I dont mind Clyde partly because i dont take color commentary seriously in any way. Im not looking for insightful comments when i watch basketball games. There are much better places to look for that than an employee whose job is very much akin to that of a pr spokesperson.

    Bring back Van Chancellor!!!


    He couldn't remember anyones name but, codsarnit, he was more entertatining than Clyde any day of the week.


    Its sad that this is what we've been reduced to, Calvin has more charisma in that pinkie toe in his gators than Bullard and Clyde combined.

    It's not even just the material that is coming out of his mouth. It's his actual voice and the way he talks. Almost monotone. Seems like there is no personality. We need someone with a personality! I think Matt Bullard is the same way. Both of these guys annoy the heck outta me!

    Good point (and assessment) that you made with JD of the Astros. You really can mix a personality with intelligent insight. Murph gave us that and more. I miss the fact that I could watch the game with my wife and she could join in the banter purely based on what she heard from Murph. He broke it down in a way that even the informal fan could comprehend. Sometimes the respect we have for someone as an athlete can fog or muddle opinions about them in their subsequent careers. e.g. Clyde as a color guy. In other words, I agree with earlier posts that we must respect Clyde for who he is and what he's done....as an athlete......while I also whole-heartedly agree with you that he no longer represents the Rockets well with his present work; in fact, that he "dumbs it down". In order to have a pragmatic opinion of his body of work thus far, we have to separate the two.

    Clyde the Glyde: A+

    Clyde the Slyde: D-

    denniscd also makes a great point. We hold our coaches and players to high standards. Why not our commentators?

    And what gets me is Matt Bullard is taking a backseat letting Clyde doing way too much talking. Let Matt Bullard TALK, for GOD-SAKE!!!!

    What is the reason again, for keeping Clyde as color commentator and restricting Calvin to desk duty...?

    Clyde isn't as annoying as most of you make it out to be. Most local announcing teams are pretty bad overall.

    Better than to just create a new thread when I can just recycle an old one. I'm all about the environment.
