Ask any SEC football fan what's the worst thing they can hear on a Saturday? You'd think they would say that their team lost. But that's not true! Most of them would say the worst thing they can hear is that their school's football game is the featured game on CBS. Why would that be so bad? Because the commentators are Gary Danielson and Verne Lundquist! These men are WAY past their prime in sportscasting, and it's time we get some fresh new faces who can actually do a good job! Gary and Verne often forget names or players, coaches, etc. and call them a completely different name. Their commentary is extremely negative for most of the game. They are also two of the most biased commentators on TV. They cannot remain neutral at all! They pick their team in the game and constantly berate the other team! Any college football fan will tell you that the commentary adds so much to the game, but in Gary and Verne's case it completely ruins the game! We, as college football fans, are BEGGING you to consider replacing Gary and Verne! We need fresh new faces who make us anticipate and WANT to watch our teams play instead of completely dreading it! If you don't believe me about how badly everyone wants Gary and Verne to go, just check out CBSSports' Facebook page or search Twitter for mentions of them. You'll find post after post of people saying how awful they are, and that It's time for them to go!

To:
Replace Gary Danielson and Verne Lundquist

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Saturday Down South, a HUGE SEC news website, wrote an article on the petition yesterday! While it's clear the author disagrees with our position, any media is good media! You can check out the article on the SDS website or on their Facebook where they have posted it multiple times and received thousands of comments, the overwhelming majority of which are in support of the petition!

      It is so obvious that these two are pulling against Alabama from the start of the game.It has gotten to the point that I have to mute the sound and listen to my radio in order to be able to actually enjoy the game and that is a shame...

      They are without a doubt the worst college football commentators on the air today! Biased and inept is not a good combination!
