Quote :
After a rough debut – both at the mic and on social media – veteran UFC commentator Mike Goldberg has been removed from the NFL on FOX booth.

Goldberg, a veteran sports broadcaster who’s been calling UFC fights since 1997, made his NFL-FOX debut on Sunday during a Detroit Lions vs. Minnesota Vikings game:

The 49-year-old made some gaffes during the call, including the misidentification of players/coaches and mispronouncing their names. However, he compounded his problems afterward while responding to criticism on Twitter and using some profanities (which have since been deleted):

Goldberg was slated to work this coming weekend’s Bills vs. Vikings game, but he’s no longer part of the broadcast, the Bills today announced (via Twitter):

Tim Brando has now taken over his play-by-play duties.

I didn't hear any of it live, but from what I've heard second-hand, it was pretty brutal and hard to listen to.

I honestly didn't even care/realize that he sucked... too hard to bitch about the commentator sucking when your team looks like fuckin absolute horse shit!!!

I never liked him as a commentator.... Not to be a dick or anything but he's always just sort of repeated what Joe has said but in different words or as a question and I'm sure we've all even seen Joe roll his eyes at goldi....

Sorry not trying to bash the guy...

No, you're right. He's kind of just a talking head type of commentator, except he manages to also fuck up minor- yet obvious- talking points. I've honestly thought to myself on several occasions that he's trolling the viewers by intentionally fucking up the pronunciation of fighters' names. For example, I remember him pronouncing Vinicius Maghalles' last name as "Mog-dah-lesh". Really? How the fuck did you come up with that?! And if I'm not mistaken, he was the one who pronounced Ali Bagautinov's last name as "Baga-OOH-tee-nov". It was somehow so close to correct, but yet so far away.

I like Goldie, but seriously wtf!?! I mean are you kidding me with his social media stuff? He knows better than that.

He sucked on Sunday. He was not prepared at all and people called him on it. He didnt know some rules, he said Golden Tate was a Viking and Greg Jennings was a Lion, and just sounded horrible.

But whatever I guess it can happen. But, then he goes on twitter and starts cursing out the people who say he wasn't good? Like the UFC didn't have a bad enough rep already now we have "The voice of the UFC Mike GOldberg fired from NFL for cursing out fans" Sigh, so fucking annoying...
