    What are you're thoughts on Craig Ackerman as a play-by-play guy. I live in NH and listen via XM. I honestly must say I find him unbearable. Just plain awful.

    I miss Peterson and Foley Big Time.

    I like Craig Ackerman. I hate Joel Blank.

    He's an excellent announcer. Him and Joel Blank are really good. What is wrong with you?

    I hope Craig takes over from bill whenever he feels his time is up.

    Then once dwight retires he takes Clyde's spot for the comedy

    Then parsons takes bulls spot to keep e female viewers watching (and the whole of CF's)

    Lin takes Ho Chen's place. We need to keep the LOFs happy in the future

    Wow, this shocks me. I hear a lot of announcers with XM and in my opinion, Ackerman is one of the worst. I prefer the away feed, which hurts me to do maybe Joel makes it worse and I'm impacted by that, don't know.

    I do respect everyone's opinion though.

    Akerman is now in legend status after the tragedy he had to sufer through last year. Even after all that he still came back and delivered great calls.

    He is excellent.

    Put me in the pro-Ackerman group. I enjoy listening to him while driving home from work.

    Ackerman is phenomenal. He's the only guy in Houston you can say that about

    Did not realize Ackerman has worked for the Rockets in various capacities for over 20 years. He doesn't look that old. OP you're taste in announcers is awful. Ackerman is a fantastic PBP man.

    Ackerman is great. He's the only good local radio guy we have.

    I can't see much negativity over Ackerman's performance!

    He does a professional job, and doesn't annoy me. He compliments the radio broadcast well. He isn't greater than the game. Which to me makes a solid radio guy.

    As what? I knew he did radio for UH/Rice and the Houston Commets, at least since '97.
