The second week of Straight Outta Stockton nominees are upon us, with announcing quotes that make Browns/Seahawks look like football artistry. Thankfully none of these broadcasters idiotically headbutted their partner in the booth (thanks for the memories, Red Bryant). The Dickies (our NFL version of the Pammies) will award the most humorous and offbeat announcer quotes every week for the rest of the NFL season. Can Scott Hanson hold his Dickies lead, or will some of our favorite announcers take the top spot this week?
As to how the Straight Outta Stockton vote works, each week we'll nominate 15-20 quotes for you to pick the best 10. The winning quote of the week will earn that person 10 points all the way down to 1 point for 10th. Remember, you can vote for your favorite five quotes. Here are your Week 7 nominees...
1) "We welcome those of you who watched the Packers." - Thom Brennaman (via JimWilliamsOnAir) introing an out of market audience to the GB/MIN game.
2) "He has a football coach's mentality and a baseball manager's head." - Dick Stockton (via cfaris09) on Tony La Russa.
3) "Can you win a dancing competition with a man that has a beard?" - Greg Gumbel (via merfster1)
4) "Minnesota doesn't need a touchdown here. all they have to do is move the ball and score a touchdown." - Troy Aikman (via bjo109)
5) "This is the first time a team has suited up three 1st round picks at quarterback" - Dan Fouts (via Bill_Earley1) on the Raiders quarterbacks including Terrelle Pryor, not a first round pick.
6) "What you want to do here is run as much time off the clock, so you can run out the clock" - Warren Moon (via Real_DWM)
7) "Maybe they get back into things in the AFC South" - Chris Myers (via AdamLawsonEU) on the Panthers, who definitely play in the NFC South.

9) "Grab him by the waist and get into position" - Jim Mora (via steve5643)

Vote For Your Week 7 Dickies Nominees! (vote for up to five)

Really Ryan?. Once you get off your soapbox, realize the shady website you work for. I actually feel like writing my own 4 paragraph article about how women in sports are subjected to unfair stereotypes, and explain how one little blogger's "senseless" comments perpetrate that myth by having an "unfunny" column called the 'Pammies'.
Do you find "Jaywalking" by Jay Leno racist? Because that is basically the same concept as this feature. I think it is *more* racist that everyone is calling needless and hypocritical attention to this story, including yourself.
@freetouse I look forward to reading that article. Just know before you waste time writing it that "women in sports are subjected to unfair stereotypes" were your words; thus, perhaps your own perception, and that by no means does an "unfunny column called the Pammies" perpetuate whatever unfair stereotypes you're talking about. If you're not clear on this, the Pammies exist so that listeners of cfb games have a venue to call out announcers -- male, female, black, white, yellow, Brent Musburger, whatever -- for their miscues, which are actually often times pretty funny, whether you'd like to admit it or not.
The fact it is called the Pammies (as it was tabbed by the editor emeritus in 2007) simply reflects that she is the announcer who gets called out the most by listeners, hence why she has won her own 'Pammy award' in the past and led last week's standings. It has nothing to do with the fact she's a woman. That is unless you'd like to make an argument based on your opinion that suggests that?This video done by FOX at USC (semantics, David) is in no way relevant to what you've brought up.
SC gets so much shit as it is. I think it should be clear that this is a Fox production. By calling it a USC video, it may lead people to believe SC condoned this video. That isn't semantics.
@DavidArambula That's the very definition of the word semantics. Ryan clearly did not mean the video was produced/endorsed by USC
If you can't see the serious difference between this video and Jay Leno's Jaywalking or the Pammies, then I don't think I can help you. This USC video was a blatant attempt at making fun of an entire race of students simply for being different than the rest of us. To claim drawing attention to this article is "needless and hypocritical" is not even worth refuting. If you want to be on the side of defending this piece of crap, be my guest.
Just more reason that Oklahoma going to the Pac 12 sucks. We have to put up with liberal nonsense like this. Whoever thinks OU is a cultural fit for the Pac 12 needs to have their head examined.
@College Sports Rivalry I'm curious what the "liberal nonsense" is here? When I wrote this story the "cultural fit" of Oklahoma in the Pac-12 was the furthest thing from my mind...
