    Thanks, but I’m busy scratching my nails against a chalkboard. Maybe another time.

    I’ve always liked Danielson. Never really understood the hate he gets from some fans.

      I can’t understand it, either. He didn’t say anything earth shattering in this clip, but you wouldn’t either because it’s a puff piece for the network, and also, there’s really not much else to say. When you compare him with other people calling games – admittedly a very low bar – he’s way ahead of everyone else.

    • He started enjoying our losses too much, and wouldn’t defend bad calls, bad no calls and Auburn’s cheap shots. Used to be better at predicting plays before the snap and pointing out what adjustments a team needed to make, now he just sort of dials it in. Had wayyyyy to much love for Tebow…even worked Timmy into this clip.

        So yeah, I think this kind of sums it up. He’s not your homer. It’s not just Georgia fans who complain he likes Florida, LSU, or Alabama too much. He’s one of the better guys in the booth for college football.

        I won’t get into him being biased against Georgia too much as I do t know why he would really care but there have been times that he seemed to take cheap shots at Georgia or go out of his way to be dickish in the past. I remember after a close victory over somebody in ‘12, I think, as it showed the team celebrating on the field the broadcast ended with his voice saying, “They’ve got a tough one next week!” That doesn’t seem so bad if you didn’t hear him say it. I also remember in the SECC against Auburn in ‘17, Terry Godwin and maybe Mecole Hardman got flagged for something on a little cross thing they did on the goal line and the way he sneered, “You’ve gotta do it better than that, Georgia!” just seemed a little too emotionally invested to me. I can’t stand his voice. He sounds like he has a Twinkie Hong in his throat. He looks like Bob Barker. He’s just annoying. And as has been mentioned, while he used be really good at predicting the upcoming play and breaking down plays, he doesn’t seem to do much of that anymore. Y’all can have Gary. The wrong guy retired. Vern used to make me laugh.

      Yeah, I’ve always liked Gary. Usually has some good insights and he doesn’t suck up to any team (including Georgia). Nessler used to be better but it seems like he’s gotten more jaded as time goes on. Still, they are worlds better than anything the WWL puts out there.

        He annoys me because he really gets behind the team that is winning the game. He gets critical in a smug way of the team that’s behind. It’s just his general demeanor that bugs me, one of those guys that thinks he’s smarter than all the other guys in the room.

        I don’t think he hates GA, I think I’ve had too many moments where we get beat in these 3:30 specials and had to listen to him jack off the opponent and criticize us though.

          It’s my perception and has been for years that Danielson lauds our opponents no matter what. Not so much that he doesn’t like UGA, he just won’t shut up about the other team. Even when Georgia is playing well and winning he’s babbling on about something he’s seen on the opposite team.

          Scene: UGA-2nd and goal from the twelve: Chubb tries to run off tackle but the hole is closed…so Chubb bounces outside, makes a defender miss, gets wrapped up at the two but drags the defender into the end zone for the touchdown…
          GD: ” And that’s another score for Georgia, that puts ’em up by 14. Let’s look at the replay (uses yellow crayon on screen) Look here at #77 on the defense… see how even though he’s double teamed here he uses perfect technique to force the play outside and give #24 for Auburn the chance to make the stop at the 2.”
