Bad form, yet again thumbsdown. Either start closing their mikes while they're not rolling, or just take the mikes away. I don't think hearing them adds that much to the show, anyway.

Wes just said "god dam*it" after leaving the 10 pin in the 10th frame. Ridiculous!

Chubbs, I agree. The mics add nothing, because most pros won't talk much when focusing.

Some of the pros are very active with talking to themselves like Patrick Allen and a few others, but I agree the mics don't really add to anything other than the occasional funny comment.

I also don't really take much offense to some of the swearing.

Yeah, I agree. Why doesn't the PBA do anything about it, like fining the offending players, or do they just not care anymore?

Time for ESPN to start utilizing a 5-second delay (the broadcast networks already utilize this) on its live telecasts of the PBA, this most recent spree of cussing on TV (don't forget about Sean "F-bomb" Rash) the last three weeks including this incident, is definitely degrading our sport and dragging it further through the mud.

I know that our great sport has been degraded to being shown only on cable on Sunday mornings (where nobody watches anything but the NFL, NBA, and NASCAR), but the players ought to know that there are kids out there who are watching their bowling idols/role models throw strikes and inspire the next generation of "young guns" to live the dream of join the Tour, and cussing on national TV (albeit cable) is not tolerable, so please guys, save the cussing either for league night or when you're at home watching it on TV.

Just a note, that I don't find any of it personally offensive, but it bothers me that our sport will get an even worse rep with this kind of language coming from men who are supposed to present a quality image.

BIGHMW, 100% agreed.

Cal-

It's not so much that I take personal offense to it because its not like I've never heard these words used before. The problem is that it makes the sport an even more difficult sell to sponsors, and even to a network to carry the shows. If this trend coninues, the tour will eventually find itself without a television partner and without adequate sponsorship to continue operation. A judgement day like that may not come tomorrow or the next day, but this trend has to stop right now.

Your right it does need to stop. But us talking about it on this forum isn't going to make it stop. Someone needs to actually do something to stop it.
