Question Trying to come to terms with Norman Chad

I see he has a following on here so I try to tell myself, lighten up and get used to his lame-ass sense of humor since he's commentating on every other poker video I watch.

But I can't. this guy never shuts up and all his jokes are completely stupid and there are so many of them, like every 15 seconds a new one. I understand you want a color commentator but this jabbering fool? Why?

Norman Chad was the big name commentator during the poker hay day. Casual players like him because he's a relatable fish and lightens things up. He was good for poker, and worked well with mike sexton...

Chad's jokes are lame but not too bad considering it must be a thankless task. However after a while I want him to shut up because of his "comic" voice. It's not his fault, anyone would have similar problems, I guess.

I like Norman and Lon, but a lot of it may be nostalgic. Their voices are corny banter are a reminder of the poker boom and how exciting and fresh poker was (and how much dead money there was involved with it).

Gabe Kaplan still to this day was the best. Some jokes, some poker knowledge and some breaks for silence to let the audience hear the players talk. Too many commentators won't STFU. Nowadays it's mostly tuchman and stapes both of which I think talk too much.

Re: Trying to come to terms with Norman Chad

I don't mind Norm and Norm+Lon have good chemistry together. Gabe of course is the GOAT.

Are you watching the ESPN WSOP episodes for entertainment or for educational purposes? If it's for the latter I'd argue you came in with the wrong mindset to begin with. It's just for fun, and Norm keeps it pretty fun. Some of his jokes are good and some are just so bad, but it's all in good fun.
