Raibs and Moon
Tue Oct 10, 2017 11:29 am
  • Let's give them their due. A hell of a duo team, we are lucky to have them every gameday. The day Raibs can't do it anymore is going to be a terrible day indeed. Like the day Pete Gross had to hang it up. Moon used to get criticism early on by some fans but I think he's great in the color role. They are perfect together. Honest question, is there a better announcer/color team out there (not including primetime guys like Michaels/Collingsworth)?

    The Cardinals color guy makes me want to chew glass. Sounds like an old has-been wrestler.

  • Moon used to say some odd things, and I always worried he has CTE. But he's light years better now and could hold his own without a co-announcer. But him and Raible together? Cha-ching! Money.

    I love having guys that have played the game (at a high level even), are able to describe thing well, and, that can give colorful, exciting descriptions without resorting to profanity. I have the utmost respect for people how don't use profanity. I can't do it. Smash a finger...

    But the 2 most Classic Announcement/Exclamations are Warren Moon's "AH!" and "Game Over Baby!"

    Yea that Cards guy was a Fullback. Not like you can't tell.

    The San Diego guy was super annoying as well. Their play by play guy has a higher voice and damn near pees himself every Charger first down, and their color guy stammers and spits a lot. Lol.

  • Moon had some gaffes early in his announcing career that may have been linked to some substance abuse problems.

    He's been pretty good for several years now, clear, easy to listen to, knowledgeable and informative. I remember a few years back I had some personal problems and had to listen to a couple of seasons of Seahawks on the radio. Raibs is pretty good, if a bit exuberant, but maybe that's what you want in a radio announcer. In a lot of ways, I miss that now that I can watch the games on TV again.

  • I'd much rather hear "Touchdown Seahawks" rather than, "ho, hum, they scored" uttered w/o any emotion at all. 99% of the NFL announcers are so damn blah. Rabs and Moon are really exciting to listen too compared to almost all of the announcing pairs the NFL trots out. Some of those guys are just too damn bias and many are very underqualified to be in the sports reporting game -IMO. Additionally, ESPN is likely to be nearly on the verge of going out of business with all of their recent firings, suspensions and other "troubles".

    Is it possible to listen to these two guys call the Seahawks games via the Internet? I watch the games in a sports bar in the LA area, and they put the sound on the Rams, Chargers, Raiders, Cowboys, Packers, Patriots, etc., games.

    I could listen on the Internet with my phone or laptop, if I could just find the broadcasts. I have looked but have not found. I wonder if they are blocked outside the Seattle area. I tried the TuneIn app on my phone.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, locally it is on 710am/97.3fm. Not sure if you can stream the game, but:

    https://tunein.com/radio/710-ESPN-Seattle-s33213/

    Good luck. It's a KIRO affiliate.

    Not sure if it's Zolak, but I think it's the Patriots guy that will start laughing a lot.

    I also can't stand the radio announcers for the Oregon Ducks. Their play by play guy starts giggling like a school girl every time they score.

    The SD guys giggle a bit too. So annoying. I'm all for the color guys to go crazy, but giggling and chortling about stuff is over the top for me.

    On a side note; I thought the Beast Quake game was the best non-Raible/Moon game telecast. The call of 'The Run' was classic. I can't remember who that was but his "get off me" quote was classic.

    Well, based on the tips a couple of guys here gave me, I am going to try to do both at once. Watch tv while listening to Raibs and Moon on the radio via the Internet.

    I don't know about the Internet, but I know the radio broadcast is several seconds off from the TV broadcast, so that may not work well. ;)

  • When I can't watch the game, I listen on the 710 app...

    http://sports.mynorthwest.com/710app/?

    When I want to watch the game on TV, I pause my DVR and let the App broadcast catch up with the TV broadcast, about 2-3 minutes behind, and plug it in to my surround sound receiver. Works great, tho the commercials don't match.

    Good luck.

    As for Raible and Moon, yes, compared to others, we are very fortunate.

  • Agreed with many here-Raible has always been fantastic as a play by play man and Moon provides solid color commentary. It's rare to have a play by play guy who was also a pro player to add additional insight-Pat Summerall the only other that immediately comes to mind. I hope Raible can keep doing it for many years to come. He really paints a picture with his calls.

  • For those of us old enough to remember the inaugural season of the Seahawks and that Era of sports radio, Pete Gross was "The Man" and what an amazing voice for the Hawks. Also spent many nights listening to Bob Blackburn broadcasting the Sonics. I remember the transition to Calabrese with both of them working group together. That was awsome! Being from Eastern Washington, I'm a Coug fan so of course Bob Robertson HAS to be added to this list of greats. Again as a kid I listened to his voice broadcasting many football and basketball games.
