I try to be objective in my commentary assessments, but "No Doubt About it" Teddy Atlas is increasingly rubbing me the wrong way. I know his supporters say he doesn't sugar coat things. But I think his "Agenda" "national commission" which Atlas will never get through his head that you CAN'T national commission an international sport. Seriously, the man held Tyson's armature spit bucket and gets unjust credit for that. I do respect SOME of the things that he says. But he doesn't even score rounds with multiple knockdowns as less than 10-8. For a suspended "know it all" about boxing, that's just fucking retarded.

My assessment is that Atlas is a better writer than talker and his agendas are a turn off to ESPN boxing. To attract new viewers, boxing needs a mellow, knowledgeable announcer who can make the game fun and interesting to the casual viewer. Teddy's "My Way Or The Highway." is far more alienating than inviting. Has this man EVER admitted to being wrong about anything?

Was there ever a time when you believed Teddy was very good as a commentator and changed? He might have been OK for me years ago, but his personal agendas I believe have gotten worse. Do you like Atlas as a commentator? Sound he stay or go? This is a guy that got suspended from a telecast for punching an ESPN cameraman.

The only good time that I thought Atlas was good (and is good) is when he is lighting a firecracker under a fighter's ass like he did with Moorer against Holyfield the first time. His speech was great! In contrast to the Petronelli brothers when Hagler fought Leonard who did nothing for Hagler in that fight. Their passiveness may have cost Hagler the Middleweight Championship that night. But for Atlas, does a motivational speaker make a good trainer? Teddy may be a decent writer, but does his extreme arrogance and opinionatedness turn you off of Friday Night Fights?

Vote and comment! I will vote Yes, Atlas should go.

Does anyone know when Atlas' contract is up at ESPN?
