No, but I have learned that you're either a spoiled and uncultered white kid or a Uncle Tom by your Muhammed Ali comment...

Always nice to know who they are around here.
lol And I've learned you're most likely a whiney black kid who starts racial debates over nothing so he can make an attempt at feeling important.

Nice to see you had no idea what I was talking about with Cosell/Ali and you still pretend to think you do.

Let me ask you this, what if a commentator called Steve Nash "Steven" all night? Would that bother you? Is it more that Collinsworth was referring to him casually or because he wasn't referring to what you think Michael Vick wants to be called?
Yeah, I would be bothered of Van Gundy or someone called Nash "Steven" for an entire broadcast...

If he wanted to be called that, he'd list that as his name.

I was bothered by the fact that Collinsworth was calling him "Mike", because while watching the game, it honestly hit me like "Why does he keep f**king saying Mike? Did anyone ever call Jordan Mike Jordan? Da f**k?"

Those were my exact thoughts, and while reading the Eagles/Cowboys threads this morning, it came back to mind.

It just annoyed me, and stuck me as extremely unprofessional.

A gay joke, unexpected. Btw don't call them the Pats, that is pure disrespect.
I'm not a commentator who is Paid Millions of Dollars to broadcast games on National TV...

But I'm not suprised that your dense a.ss still hasn't gotten the point you dumb f**k.

Na, I feel for you on this... That is pure bulls**t.

And I really feel bad for all the Giants fans who are gonna get stuck without the game because of the dumbass black out rules...

Thankfully because they have Training Camp here in Albany and John Mara pulled some strings for us fans here, we're getting the game.

But I was out of town and couldn't watch the Seahawks game where I was and isntead had to listen to it...

s**t was horrible.

Reality clashing with the sad world you've created for yourself in your head must be a tough thing...

I wish I could say I sympathize...

But I don't.

realistically illstreet is right. you dont use nicknames in situations like this...it is unprofessional, no matter how trivial you think it is, its unprofessional

the part that i disagree with illstreet with is i would like to think that collingsworth did his due diligence and asked mike if he wanted to be called mike during the game and mike gave him the go head

he actually mentioned once that he didn't like be called mike vick. this was back in the day when he was in ATL tho. maybe he doesn't care anymore.

threadstarter made a good point though, i never heard mj called mike jordan...cuz he name was michael...

@ The Bolded... If that was the case, then I'd be fine with it...

But just the thought of that interaction sounds unlikely... And if it did happen that way, then Al Michaels would most likely have been there to, and would be doing the same thing.

Al Michaels never calls him "Mike Vick".

But there's nothing suprising about that, as Al Michaels(althought getting old and slips from time to time) is a consumate professional broadcaster.

Do you think everyone would just randomly call him Mike if he already hadnt said thats what he preferred.

But that's just it... No Broadcasters do call him "Mike Vick".

And if they ever have(someone said they think Aikman might have once), they don't do it for an entire game, to the point of never calling him "Michael" once...

Like Collinsworth did last night.

I'm not just pointing this s**t out for the hell of it... ... It was irregular fam.

I didn't notice it all. And btw calling somebody named Thomas (or Tom), Tommy or Ben, Benny is not the same as calling somebody named Michael, Mike. Adding a 'y' to somebody's shorthand name most of the time is done to be condescending. EG - Mikey. If Collinsworth was calling Vick, Mikey all night that would've been some disrespectful s**t but I don't see anything wrong w/ calling him Mike.

Fair enough...

I disagree, but I appreciate you stating your opinion in a respectful and thought out manner.
