Joe,

I'll highlight the part you must have missed....I think Peter is a great announcer, and he deserves the praise.  There's ulterior BS in that post, and you know it.  Stop with the spin.

Best,
EW

EW, if Peter's such a "great" announcer (and you'll get no argument from me there), where does the guy that followed him and tortured us for 4 long years rate in your book.  Please compare on a scale of 1-100 for each individual.  I'm sure the #1 forum in all harness racing would love to hear your response.   trotter  TC

I'd give Scott about a 90 to 83 advantage.  That's my personal opinion.  I know you don't agree, but I could care less.  Peter has one of the best voices I've ever heard in the game (that Dave Johnson/Durkin kind of voice quality), however, I give a little more creedance to Scott's very specific calls.  If he didn't get a little over-zealous at times, I think you could make a serious case for him being the best in the Nation.  As it is -- I still think he falls in the top 3 in harness racing.

Personally, I really like both announcers.  We've always been pretty lucky here in Chicago for announcers talent, especially given some of the compensation packages.

Best,

Maybe in a hillbilly state an 83 is a "great" score, befitting a great announcer, but in Chicago, an 83 is NOT a great score, rather a "C+" at best.  I see you gave Peter's replacement a 90 - WOW !.  Expected, but wow.  That is  an impressive score for a guy with FP, QCD, stga, VD (3rd string no less), and Sacramento on the resume.  We won't get into my post on the old forum which pretty much proved that Peter's replacement was ranked no higher than 10th in harness racing announcers - for now.  I did ask for your opinion, I got what I expected, but I did astutely point out that, yet again, your math is horribly flawed on the world's #1 harness racing forum.  Simple logic, my dear esteemed poster, dictates you can't call someone "great", give him an 83 out of 100, then rate a cohort in archived video crime a higher score.  I suppose on your disjointed scale, that would make Peter's replacement "godlike" ?  LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL  trotter  TC   P.S.

Considering that I consider 70 average, I think 83 qualifies as excellent.  I'd only put about 10-12 announcers at that spot or higher.

Being in the top 10 of your vocation deems "great," IMO.  Plus, it's to be considered that he's held (and actually, surpassed) that level for many years.

I don't care where people have called.  Durkin has QCD on his resume.  Should we write him off too?

Get this striaght before I go : 93-100 = A
                                          85-92 = B
                                          78-84 = C
                                          70-77 = D
                              70 and below  = F

...and it's not where you start, but where you are NOW, and where you finish.  Sad to see that some hapless, annoying individuals are peddling their wares at some of the sport's most remote outposts, isn't it ?  Last I checked, PHIL, GIL, and TONY = retired and enjoying the good life.  PETER = major market calling both breeds.  DURKIN = tops in the broadcast world by standards of measurable "Q" rating.  DOM = calling both breeds for nice cabbage and remaining in the midwest near family at a clean plant and the friendliest working environment that one could ask for.  None of those names got the boot from the only major market they worked in, and all but the up-and-coming DOM plied their trade at facilities for many, many years and all, including Dom, were well liked and respected by all.  BIG DIFFERENCE !   trotter  TC

     You don't, you can just ignore the posts.  But it might be in your best interest to view back to other threads because it was posted by two or three other posters first.  Then come back on and say what you think, okay?  

    Don't be so upset that Peter mentioned Las Vegas and the Nances in his race call.  It was actually pretty cool and posted by other people first.  don't hate-celebrate.  Enjoy your day.  LOL

Joe likes to hear himself talk.
Plus he writes more about homo sex than he does about harness racing.
On the number one forum in all of Harness Racing!!!!!!!!!

I read back. Some people said it was a shout out some people said it was sarcastic. Then petgal said what he meant. After that there shouldn't be any more need of explanation. But you and TC are still spewing about it today, telling us what it meant. Peter can talk for himself without spin from you two.

Nelly, I respect EW and his rights to have opinions.  I can however debunk his silly math when he paints himself into a corner like he did.  Sometimes being a sycophant, groupie, or harpie of a boob has its drawbacks, and believe me this is the case here with him.  His blind loyalty to a snake-in-the-grass has led him to trip up over his "fuzzy math" yet again on harness racing's #1 forum.  It's OK; he's still young and starry-eyed.  He'll learn as he gets down the road of life.  The odds of his (fallen) star-crush being a top ten announcer aren't quite the 26,000,000/1 number he's thrown around previously here, but let's say if he's correct, he's cashing a healthy ticket if that catterwauler even merits the 9th or 10th slot on ANY list.   trotter  TC

Sorry Charlie, but the bulk of the "crap" on this #1 forum in all harness racing comes from trolls such as yourself.  Watch your own "spewing" and when you talk some harness racing instead of your usual unhealthy fix on the # 1 poster here, it'll be a better place to be certain.  You are in a position to demand NOTHING.  No troll has any rights on Barn To Wire - that's a fact, so get over it !   trotter  TC

TC is part of the vocal minority.  I personally know of DOZENS who really liked Scott as an announcer.  I'm not going to knock the other announcers because they all try hard and obviously love their job.  But Scott is a cut above most.  Despite what TC says.

I'm surprised TC is so hot to trot about Ehrlich.  He usually makes perfect sense even when I disagree with his opinion.  Must be something personal.  Or maybe all the smoke at Balmoral is finally getting to him.  COUGH   COUGH

  Richard:

     Sometimes you make very interesting points on the forum, however the above post is not one of them.  Your observation about 2/3rds of BTW troubles being a table of goofs in incorrect and off base. 

     The troubles on the #1 harness forum in the country is due to 2/3rds of the trolls that Janine allows the opportunity to bash, aggravate, and provoke in-forum fights.  The trolls do this because they are able to hide their identity and post lies, rumors and innuendos without anyone ever knowing whom they are and not have to worry about having to face the people they have berated.

     Think about it for a moment; there are many posters on this site that do not sign their real names, but they let the other forum members know who they are through posting under their initials or some kind of other method.  I'll use EW an example, or even TC for that matter.  Now most of the forum does not know these guys real names, but they do know whom they are or where to find them.  This adds credence and validity to their posts, would you not agree? 

     I can certainly understand someone not wanting to post under their real name for whatever reason, but wouldn't initials or some sort of nickname suffice, especially if you were being critical or had a strong opinion to offer about someone?

     Take yourself for example.  Now why would you want to register under a filthy name like you did and then expect to have readers give validity to your posts?  If someone thinks about it for a minute, your screen name Dick Breth was done to intentionally piss people off or to take a jab at the gay community.  You can't have it both ways.  I understand if you want to remain anonymous but then you can't expect your post to receive the very same validity as one whose identity is known.

     It's just the way society thinks.  It's like a person that complains about something, yet never wants to address the problem with the person that can correct it.  Do you understand what I'm trying to say?  I have always said that if I make a mistake and you are bothered by it, come up to me like a man and let me know who you are, how it affected you and give me the chance to correct it.  But if you run around talking behind a persons back and posting under a troll name on BTW, true or not, the problem will never get corrected because the person has no idea who the person posting is and how it affected them. You are not allowing a person the opportunity to make things right because they don't know who the hell you are and if you're serious or not.  This line of thinking is political in nature but you have to give one an opportunity to make things right by validating who you are or else things will remain the same...like this forum and its content.   

    It's a matter of common sense and courtesy, in my opinion, if you are going to post on a forum, (especially BTW) that MUST be some way to know if a poster is pulling your leg or just starting nonsense...and the only way to do that is by knowing the identity of the poster you are talking to. Otherwise, their post and opinion means absolutely nothing because people will start shit just to get a rise out of others, as we have seen so many times on this forum. I believe that everyone has a voice and an identity, and with those two things comes validity, it can’t be any other way.  Just my opinion and as always, open for debate.

Disagree with you Joe. Think about it. Tens thousands of posts. Many hunderds of troll posters. Includes yours. All spin offs from few little girls *** fights that estemmed posters fight in public forum. "Dakuras versus Tom Wendt". "Dakuras versus John Johnston". "Dakuras versus IRB." "TC versus Scott Ehrlich." "TC versus Tom Wendt." "TC versus Tony Morgan." Add "Dan Nance versus the world." Two years. The same little *** fights. One table of goofs and there goof freind from Las Vegas trolling *** fight posts to make other fights. Bottom cause of imense per cent of forum problems.

rest of your post was funny. No one cares for 2 thousand word playpen law opinion from estemmed goofs for what posters are credible. People read and make up there own minds thay dont need know it all estemmed goofs tell them.

Richard:

     I guess that we'll never see eye to eye on this one, huh?  Just like now, I have no idea who you are and even if you're serious or not.  That is my point.  How the hell can anyone be sure if a person is serious or not when you are talking with a troll?  At least if you knew the person by their initials or nickname, you could have a decent conversation with them.

     You have to hand it to a poster that lets others know who they are and what they stand for.  It’s the adult thing to do.  A poster that allows others to know who they are, puts themselves out there, on the edge.  That is why you see so many trolls who are the first to post something about that person, but scared to death that folks will find out who they are.  What kind of person is that?

     When people try to answer a question or post of yours, what the hell are they supposed to think, I'm talking to a Dick Breth? That is not normal and you know it.  Come on Rich be reasonable.

     I never believed it before but TC is right on.  Trolls have no voice, validity or existence on this planet.  Just my opinion.
