    “I want a champion, so I hired a Champion: Jon Champion” – Irish Comedian Mario Rosenstock, who was the voice behind the Jose Mourinho puppet in the viral video sensation I’m on Setanta Sports which aired on Setanta Sports network in Ireland, UK, and the U.S. around 2005.

    ESPN Sr. Coord. Prod. Amy Rosenfeld spent several years before she was finally able to say the same words used by Rosenstock, as she was able to convince Jon Champion to move to Boston and give up the freelancer life for a staff contract calling MLS on ESPN. Champion with partner with Taylor Twellman to call DC United vs Atlanta United on ESPN this Sunday 3 March at 6pm ET/3pm PT.

    Speaking of Rosenfeld, she now has viable candidates to put together one all-female announcing team to call both MLS and Euro 2020, as she now has on her radar a 24-yr-old British female soccer TV pxp announcer who is about to begin her 2nd year of calling minor league soccer pxp in the U.S.

    International Women’s Day, March 8, just happens to be on a Sunday.

    Stay tuned…

    Darek Rae has been commentating for the Bundesliga world feed this season. He does an excellent job, knows the league well and speaks the language. I enjoy listening to him.
    I wish NBC Sports would call him more often for some of the big EPL games instead of Arlo White.
    I’m not betting on it. NBC has some serious issues to work on not just the commentary. The only problem is they think they’re perfect. Far from it.

      Having Azer and Oliver on the same thread is enough to make you head explode.

      Two television experts!

    Derek Rae is taking the “freelancer extraordinaire” path the way Jon Champion used to stitch freelance work together before coming state side to work for ESPN.

    After working for NBC last week, Derek Rae is in LA to work for FOX Sports this Saturday, calling LA Galaxy vs Chicago Fire on FS1 with Maurice Edu. FOX needs 3 soccer announcing teams on site this Saturday as JP DellaCamera-Aly Wagner are calling USWNT-England & John Strong-Stu Holden are calling Seattle Sounders-FC Cincinnati.

      Derek Rae doing commentary for MLS will at least make it more watchable. While I haven’t heard all of the commentators for MLS, most ramble on and on. Talk way to much, mostly about stuff not related to the action the pitch/field. Other American (US) commentators seem to like to shout or talk in a raise voice all the time. Always enjoyed listen to Rae and Champion too.

        Note that Derek Rae called MLS New England Revolution matches for SportsChannel New England/FOX Sports New England (the present day NBC Sports Boston) from 1996-1999 and 2001 before going with ESPN International exclusively in 2002.

        After an alleged dispute with New England Revolution management, Rae switched to calling NY/NJ Metrostars (now NY Red Bulls) games on MSG and FOX Sports New York (the present day MSG+) with Tommy Smyth during the 2000 season.

        Rae used to call MLS matches with an American accent.

        As far as I know, LA Galaxy vs Chicago Fire will mark the 1st MLS match Derek Rae will call in 18 years, and the 1st one he will call with his Scottish accent.

        Check out Callum Williams an Englishman doing commentary for Minnesota United.
        I was watching Vancouver Whitecaps v Minnesota United today on Fox Sports North.
        His co commentator is a female Kyndra de St Aubin and sideline reporter Jamie Watson. Mr. Williams is going a great job. It was a great game, I didn’t watch the MLS for a long time except highlights. It surprised me.

          MNUFC actually uses 2 analysts on its regional telecasts and radio simulcasts, as Jamie Watson is technically a field-level analyst, not just a sideline reporter.

          3 MLS clubs employ “field level analysts” instead of reporters for there regional telecasts:

          DC United: Dave Johnson (pxp), Devon McTavish (booth-level analyst), Lindsay Simpson (field-level analyst)

          MNUFC: Callum Williams (pxp), Kyndra de St. Aubin (booth-level analyst), Jamie Watson (field-level analyst)

          San Jose Earthquakes: Anthony Passarelli (pxp), Chris “Danger” Dangerfield (booth-level analyst), Danielle Slaton (field-level analyst for home matches only, as the Quakes road games are all called “off tube” from a TV studio.)
