the guy is extremely pathetic as a commentator. waaay too biased. it's almost sad. maybe someone should tell him to lay off the weed and he wouldn't be so homotional. he has to go.

either that or give us the option to watch without commentary and just the ring and crowd noise. that is even better than being at the fight imo.

Some people claimed that Larry Merchant was a Howard Cosell wanna be. Maybe so. But I think that Cosell always brought out the pom poms for Ali and Leonard, but not as much when other fighters were fighting. But seriously, if Ali or Leonard took a shit, Cosell would be there to showcase it.

Lamply USED to be good fifteen years ago. But now it's like he never says anything negative about the HBO contracted fighter and would even bring out the pom-poms if one of their house fighters took a shit. Cosell did it for Ali and Leonard. Lamps does it for ANY "house fighter" on HBO.

Why can't boxing just go back to one guy calling the fights like Don Dunphy did in boxing's broadcast haydey? Lamply and HBO have at least four to six people on every telecast. I believe three is a crowd and six is a mob.

Do you guys think Lamply is doing the pom-poming on his own, or is someone at HBO guiding him? Who? Let's see how much his commentary might change with the big name fighters at HBO moving to Showtime.

i'm convinced there is some dumb ass that is directing the ass clowns from the ear piece. i think they all have their heads up their asses. i used to like kellerman but he's become merchant jr. lampley has been bad since the days of de la hoya. it's time for new blood there. i've heard that george foreman is coming back. that is good news. i enjoy roy jones and andre ward. a two man team is enough. they need a guy ringside and a guy to go into the ring after the fights.

on a side note...this thread should be pinned until they get rid of lampley. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

LOL!!! Pin the thread till they get rid of Lamply! No, we only do the pin-ups for round by round stuff and important site issues. However, I agree. Forman and Merchant are coming back on that HBO 2 card from China, and Tim Ryan, who used to do color commentary for CBS. I would like to see Lamply retired, seriously. Comments about Kellerman as Mrchant Jr. are brilliant!
