    So let's say Jim Rome replaces Goldie. As a Dutch guy I have no idea who the man is. I googled him and found out he was the guy calling a certain Jim Chris who got mad at that and that he comments American Football.

    Since i will be listening to his voice for over 100 hours during the rest of my life, what can we expect? Is he a good commentator? Is he annoying? Does he have trademark things like "it's all oooooverrr"?

    Thanks in advance.

    he's a loudmouth jackass, basically. a sports talk show guy who is known basically for being arrogant and running his mouth all the time. he also has a really annoying voice.

    and yes, best known for calling Jim Everett 'Chris' and getting thrown out of his chair.

    This is the most deflating MMA news since Rory left UFC, for me at least.

    I hope he's great, and we suddenly learn to love the guy... but... Ugh... My feet are dragging. I'm not excited over this.

    Heard him do sports interviews over the years and he's been welcoming to do pre-fight UFC interviews since way back when popular guys like him didn't do them, when UFC wasn't doing well. He's smart and articulate but IDK how that translates to commentating fights.

    exactly. if they put these two together in one booth, it will be non-stop bickering and ego clashing. will be a full on train wreck.

    Was coming here to say he is a giant douche. That sums him up perfectly.

    grew up listening to Jim Rome every day as a little kid. Couldn't think of a better replacement. All the people bitching are snoody MMA fans that think no one is good enough. Can't wait for him to step in

  14. Think of an arrogant version of Anik with an old-school robot speech pattern.

    He talks better than Anik and is more quick-witted than him. Anik's a nicer dude though. Rome has an ego and it's true that doesn't bode well with Rogan, if Joe makes fun of him like he does with Mike sometimes.

    I thought you meant Joe Rogan. And Jim Rome is also a JR. So there is ANOTHER JR doing commentary?

    His radio schtick is coming across as a douchebag know it all who rips on people. He's basically a slick jewish douchebag with a nice suite taking shots. I enjoy him and find him funny, but he is very polarizing. Either you like him and laugh or hate him and think hes a douchebag.

    Very odd fit for a commentary/play by play position.
