No Maas! Please?

Regular readers of Down and Distance know that I have long been mystified by the continued employment of Bill Maas, who for several years has served as the color commentator on Fox's seventh- or eighth-string NFL broadcast team. Maas is unmatched among broadcasters in his near-seamless stupidity, his utter ignorance of the rules of football, his penchant for stating the obvious, his trying-too-hard machismo, his depressingly boastful ignorance (Bill, as a color man, it's your fucking job to understand the passer rating system and to explain it to the viewer), his relentless beating of dead horses, and his mouth-full-of-gummy-bears diction.

Well, now we know why he's that way: He's high!
