He's a WHOLE LOT BETTER than our broadcast team at spotting. Heck, they even know what's happening on the field.  They are a good broadcast team, comparatively speaking.  With our team, if your not actually watching the game you have absolutely NO idea where the ball is, or even what's going on on the field sometimes.  They have NO idea how to spot.  They can be several yards off on where the ball is, and they just throw a number out there for yards on gains, losses, punts, etc., and even the line of scrimmage can be off by a few yards, and they don't even correct themselves when they are off.  That's just sad.  They are also a bit too homer, which I don't have a problem with, but sometimes they holler so loud when something good happens that you can't understand them, and that pushes the homerism way overboard.  I understand that these guys are all volunteers, so I shouldn't complain, but toning it down a bit, and understanding how important spotting is would make it a lot more tolerable.

The homerism is one of the great things about high school football.  I agree sometimes it gets overboard, especially when broadcasters delve into how bad the referees are screwing their chosen team.  But it's great to be able to listen to people who know your kids and know the community.

True, and you get it.  Our broadcasters, thankfully, don't go overboard on the penalties very often.  The calls and missed calls have to be very obvious for them to dis the refs.  Referees are human, and make mistakes, and we can all agree that sometimes they can either miss a call, or make a questionable call.  It happens to every team.  You just have to learn to play through the calls regardless.  Referees are right much more often than they are wrong.  That's for sure.
