Mark Jones named new TV PBP voice

#31
Color me happy with this hire too. Mark Jones is a good PbP guy.

I’m wondering if the pro Kayte Hunter crowd here might get their wish with her becoming part time fill in? I can see that happening. Her or Kozimor. IDK, I suppose they could have Deuce called up from Stockton on those days too.
I think kayte would be more if a color analyst as opposed to pbp. But I’d be fine with koz, deuce or even the g-man since it’ll probably be only a few games they would fill in for.

Totally agree. Only mentioned it because there were more than a few lobbying her for PbP.

Since it would be limited, it allows them a bit more latitude in trying something outside the box.

That said, I do think G-Man or Deuce would be the more obvious choices.

Another impressive hire for the organization! It’s nice to see so much competency through the organization finally. As a non sac/Californian, I really got a local vibe from Grant and Jerry I really connected to. Maybe it’s that Sacramento and my home state have some similarities (often overlooked and agricultural) Having said that, I’m excited to usher in a new era of Mark/Doug!

Excerpt from the athletic
“The fan should come from the broadcast going, ‘Oh, wow, I didn’t know that, what they were thinking or doing at that time,’” Jones said. “If I’m able to set Doug up to have one or two of those moments a game, that’s a win. That’s my responsibility, and it’s a job as play-by-play, you have to be very egoless. I think when you take a big slice of humble pie when you get the gig, everybody gets better. When play-by-play guys start taking themselves too seriously, I think that diminishes the wonderful abilities of analysts, and I’ve seen it and I never want to be one of those guys.”

Heard him on the show with Doug Christie yesterday.......caught the tail end of the interview......so it might have been from earlier in the month but listening to Jones was really refreshing and professional. I’m going to enjoy him as our guy.

Can't post that our new play by play guy is a horrible human being?

Because any so called professional that celebrates another athletes season ending knee injury is a real POS.

All i did was a duck duck go search and there it is, not to mention a lot of other stuff that i won't post because, well, it'll get deleted.

Let me reiterate:

It is a fact that Mark Jones has been politically vocal. This website, as you all know, avoids political discussions for obvious reasons. Please do not push the discussion into Jones' politics, or into a comparison of Jones and Napear that goes beyond their abilities to announce a game. Thank you.
We know exactly where this was going. It's not going there, not on this website.

Excuse me but I didn’t go political at all. Didn’t have to.
He liked a tweet that celebrated the 49ers nick bosa blowing out his knee. That can be taken all by itself without going anywhere else.
Just so I’m informed.....are posts being deleted because of where they MIGHT go? Even if the initial post isn’t political at all?

It's political, because Mark Jones liking a tweet mocking Boas's injury isn't a story, without talking about why there was a tweet mocking Bosa's injury, in the first place. Which, in turn, is not a story, without talking about Bosa's politics.

People take both social media and celebrities way to freaking seriously.

Therein lies a deeper problem.

Regardless of the controversy and how fans feel about it, I hope Jones and Christie pair well together.
