Indecipherable Football Game On WBOQ

I listened in with my PCR-1000 which includes a rudimentary "scope" but by
half-time they were acknowledging the problem and doing something different
for the second half.

The second half they had no crowd noise, no wind noise, and none of the flip
quips a broadcast team develops while standing in a cold booth at a high
school game. It almost sounded like it was being viewed on camera and the
action was being described.

I would like to see more "color" and player knowledge in the broadcasts, but
it's understandable that the Red Sox have used up the opportunities to fine
tune the football broadcasts.
