There is no question that all ESPN, CBS, NBC, Fox, and NFLN TV announcers have radio transmitters in their headphones (connecting them with writers/producers) during every broadcast. One constant occurrence in which this becomes quite obvious is whenever the announcers accidentally misspeak. Usually, several seconds of silence will tick by following each gaffe (while handlers inform them of the verbal blunder)â€¦followed by the announcer saying: â€œSorry, I actually meant to sayâ€¦â€ As Don noted, the fact that all announcers are given pre-scripted â€œgame talking pointsâ€ couldnâ€™t be more evident either. Sometimes, these talking points become quite comical as they make little sense in the context of the game being discussed. For instance, a few weeks ago during the Bears-Cowboys game on MNF, it was â€œin the scriptâ€ that Gruden emit glowing praise of Julius Peppers. Peppers, who was invisible all night, finished with one tackle. During almost every NFL game, video highlight packages or complex statistical graphics are clearly prepared beforehand and are utilized when appropriate to emphasize whatever Casteon dogma is applicable to the contest.
