    I always wondered what guys are like when the Camera is not on 'em. I liked Boomer and his kindness to the Bolts. Just lost a ton of respect from this guy.:no:

    Man, that was hilarious. But it actually shows that Berman is human and can blow up just like all of us. Come on now people. We've ALL gone on a tirade like that before more than once. I know I have (too many times actually). Boomer is a cool dude on camera, but we all have those moments like that when you just melt down. For those who have kids you ALL know what I'm talking about.....:yes:

    You should hear the routine comments made off mike and before and after news broadcasts on a normal basis.

    Berman is human just like the rest of us! :tup:

    That was great! I have always been a fan of Berman, but that just raised it to a new level for me! :icon_toast:

    "And you guys thought I was a pain in the ***..."

    That comment alone by whoever is behind camera lets me know that Berman is a fuqin jackass to work with.

    Diva. :yes:

    I disagree. I found it amussing but I don't think any less of Berman.

    I used to follow the Chargers by C-band satillite prior to NFL Sunday ticket. In those days I would scan 23 satellites for the Chargers feed and would come across funny stuff;

    Bob Costas dancing on a desk. Kind of creepy.

    Theisman practicing his spontaneous witty comments, and then ****ing it up live.

    A commentator talking about the cheerleaders.

    A reporter yelling at the cameraman, "you think this is so easy? You get your ****ing *** out here and try it." The cameraman was laughing and the camera was shaking.

    Pat Summerall talking about which players were going to get cut.

    During the commercials there was live audio going as the cameramen scanned around. Dan Fouts was the only commentator that acknowledged the audience listening in during the commercials. He addressed the audience, "dishheads you know you're watching this illegally. It's OK, I do it too."

    I think he used to post here or on another forum. He has a bad temper. The coke is getting to him. Mellow Chris. Mellow.

    I disagree as well. When you are doing a live show, having peeps ducking around and under the cameras would be annoying as hell. I would have told the fukheads to stop running around as well.
