There have been many lists and rankings about athlete and coach meltdowns. We have all seen George Brett charging the field, Hal McRae tear apart his office, players fighting or Bob Knight being himself, but what about the announcers that bring us the action?
Announcers are supposed to be the objective source of information about the game. Granted, your home town announcers may not be as objective, but their job is still to describe the action as fairly as possible.

Here are eight of the more memorable incidents.
