The Danielson Effect
« on: November 23, 2021, 11:08:27 AM »
Scanning the bookfaces this past weekend, seeing numerous comments from both Bama and Arky fans on how bad Gary Danielson hates their team.  Funny thing about Danielson, no matter what game he calls, the fans of those teams will swear Gary has it out for them, and can't stop schlobbing the knob of their opponent.

Ask any Auburn fan about him, and every one will say Danielson can't stand the Tigers, and loooooooves him some Bama and Saban. The Bama fans were up in arms this weekend because he had the audacity to say the refs missed some calls that should have gone against the Tahd.  Saw one that flat out said, "Gary Danielson HATES Alabama."  Really?

In 2019, I went up to a neighbor's house to watch LSU beat Bama in Tuscaloosa.  The guy is a big Bayou Bengal fan and could not stop screaming at the TV.  "Damn this guy.  He can't say anything good about LSU.  He wants Bama to win so bad."  I was watching and wondering what the hell he was talking about.  Just Gary being Gary.

I remember the very first time I heard Danielson call one of our games.  Tennessee was at Auburn, during the Tuberville era. I recall getting pissed because he was calling out Auburn for bad play calling and various other crap.  Then I realized, he ain't wrong.  He's just telling you what's happening without sugar coating it.  It was a horrible game between two below average teams. I think AU pulled out that barn burner, 14-9.

Personally, I've never minded Gary.  Listen to him call a game in which you have no dog in the fight.  He's brutally honest about what's going on.  If he thinks a ref missed a call, he'll point it out.  If he thinks the play calling sucks, he'll say so. (See Gus Malzahn at LSU 2017)

Is Gary my favorite?  Not by a long shot. I just find it hilarious to watch people get their underoos in a sandy bunch every time he calls one of their games, I don't care who it is.  Every fan of every team thinks Gary hates them. It's the Danielson effect.

I agree.  I have never had much of a beef with how he called games.  You pair him up with the likes of Vern and it really would seem like he truly hated when in reality he just called it like he saw it. 
I figured anyone who got beat up as much as he did in Detroit and could still walk got a pass from me.

"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shitty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

Having been in his presence several times, I can tell you Gary is dumber than a bag of chair legs.  I don't think he's smart enough to have an agenda about any team. 

I hate his calls. He's a moron.

my issue with Gary is he talks just to talk, and doesn't shut up with the non sense....he rambles and says dumb shit. He's like your drunk Uncle Ned at Thanksgiving. I don't think he has an agenda for or against any team. I just think he's a terrible, rambling color analyst.

My only issue with him is that he knows who the 3rd string long snapper is for bammer and can't even get starter's names right for other teams out there.  Of course, that's probably because they are on CBS every fucking week.

It wouldn't be so bad if he would actually color comment on the game in front of him and not another one he wishes he was calling.

Gary: Vern, that Tim Tebow in this situation would have made that throw for the completion!
Vern:  Derrick McFadden in the backfield for the Crimson Tigers on a 4th and 63 here in Knoxville and man do I love mashed potatoes!
Gary: You know how else loved mashed potatoes, Vern?  Tim Tebow!

Then you would flip it over to ESPN and see spit bubbles on the camera lens where Louth Holtzth woud be yellth at Moch Mayer!

I remember people getting pissed at Vern because he could never come close to pronouncing CJ Uzomah's name right.  I get it, but I had to give him a pass.  Tommy Tuberville had Devin Aromashodu and Ben Obomanu for 4 years, and he never once said their names right.

Great catch there by Devin Aromadoo.  He and Obawambanoo have really come on this year.
