The Chicago Bears radio broadcast is almost unlistenable with Tom Thayer as the color commentator. Of course, I understand how disappointing the Bears are and have been for some time, but Thayer’s constant negativity makes this even worse.
Need a great example of a passionate former player broadcasting for a struggling team, go back and listen to replays of the great Ron Santo. He wore his heart on his sleeve, and you could feel his heart break when things weren’t going well for the Cubs, but you never felt negativity like the kind that flows from Thayer’s mouth.
It’s time for a change.
