Social media criticizing Gary Danielson for CBS broadcast of Tennessee at Georgia
There are few things you can count on in life, but one of them during football season is fans criticizing CBS broadcaster Gary Danielson. This week, it was during the Tennessee-Georgia game on the “SEC on CBS.”
Tennessee fans especially focused on Danielson misidentifying Vols players. They also thought Danielson was biased toward Georgia, and didn’t understand certain penalties, such as a penalty just before Tennessee’s second touchdown of the game. One Tennessee fan tweeted that he hoped the Vols don’t play another CBS game in order to avoid hearing Danielson.
Each week, it’s something that routinely brings together otherwise opposing fan bases around the league to agree on the same thing.
One fan summarized it all this way: “His commentary is dated, his views are biased, and his voices makes me want to turn off the tv. Get rid of him.”
Here’s a sampling of some first-half reaction toward the broadcaster SEC fans love to hate:
@CBSSports what does Gary Danielson have on you? The guy is the worst announcer on tv to date. His commentary is dated, his views are biased, and his voices makes me want to turn off the tv. Get rid of him.

@CBSSports Seriously, uncontrolled bias in a sportscaster like Gary Danielson is unattractive and irritating. Clean up your act and your house.

Thank you Gary Danielson for telling me that the refs can’t see the first down line we see on TV

Can we send Gary Danielson back to the Big 10? Surely there’s a former SEC guy that can handle color comments.

You know it’s a CBS game when the 1st quarter isn’t over and you’re already tired of hearing Gary Danielson

Vols could be up 30-0 and Gary Danielson would still find a way to be up Georgia’s ass the entire game.

Somebody tell Gary Danielson that an illegal motion penalty does not result in the play being blow dead

Did Gary Danielson not get recruited by UT out of high school? Even when something goes good…negative talk

I hope we win this game just so Gary Danielson has to talk about it. He LOVES Georgia. Loves them.

Dude I hope Gary Danielson can meet his hero, Stetson Bennett the fourth, after this game. He just idolizes the kid.

I hope we don’t play another CBS game simply because of Gary Danielson.

Tennessee fans, Georgia fans, Kentucky fans, Alabama fans, Auburn fans, all fans. We stand in agreement that Gary Danielson absolutely sucks.

Georgia fans saying Gary Danielson is bias against them. Tennessee fans screaming the same. Maybe it’s just y’all #TENNvsUGA
— Smash Adams (@SA_SportsGuy) October 10, 2020
I bet Georgia’s radio broadcast is less biased than Gary Danielson. Could you be more obvious?
