“NFL broadcasting cliches will come back to haunt you”


Norman Chad comments on some of the worst of announcer-speak. Two examples:

“He is able to walk off the field under his own power.”: How else do you walk off the field? Heck, you never hear about somebody “walking away from a meeting under his own power” or “walking away from a marriage under his own power.”

“He’s deceptively quick.”: How can you tell?
