Most of us watch plenty of soccer games on TV, whether it's MLS, foreign leagues, international friendlies, etc. As such, we are exposed to a wide variety of announcers.
It's just another aspect of the American game, specifically MLS, that differs from the rest of the world. In many ways, soccer broadcasts have had to evolve over time much like the game on the field. Sometimes when I watch an MLS broadcast, I wonder why the league can't take about 20-30 soccer announcers from England and drop them by helicopter over strategic locations across the country.
Anyway, I decided to make a poll on the crop of announcers most of us are exposed to throughout the year. I tried to cast a wide net but I know I missed an announcer or three. I just hope there aren't any glaring omissions. I just limited it to play-by-play guys. Perhaps we'll have another round of a poll for those guys but for now I wanted to see who is well-liked by our readers.
My own vote goes for JP Dellacamera. I really like a couple of the other ones a lot but JP has always been my favorite, probably since the 1998 World Cup. I saw him recently in the press box at Home Depot Center and almost introduced myself but I decided against it. I didn't really have anything prepared and I probably would have said something lame to him like "Hey, I like your calls" or something like that.
Anyway, let me know who you like, who you don't and why.
