Not earth-shattering news, but from a very reliable source AA has learned that Dick Stockton has been demoted from the #2 team for the upcoming season.
Here's the breakdown. Basically they're trading Dick with Kenny Albert. FOX is high on Albert as they've put him on playoff baseball coverage and most recently their Bowl coverage this past season. Daryl Johnston stays as analyst with KA, and Dick Stockton now works with....get this....Brian Baldinger. I don't think I could put a worse team together if I wanted to (I can't wait to get the NFL package on DirecTV this year).
The other interesting tidbit is that this team might drop to 4th on the Announcing Depth Chart for next year. Matt Vasgersian and JC Pearson
The teams should look like this come the 2007 Season (Sideliner in parenthesis):
Buck and Aikman (Pam Oliver)You never knew they had that many teams did you?
Kenny Albert and Daryl Johnston (Siragusa)
Matt Vasgersian and JC Pearson (Jay Glazer)
Dick Stockton and Brian Baldinger
Sam Rosen and Tim Meyers (Chris Meyers)
Ron Pitts and Jesse Palmer
Tom Brennamen and Barry Alvarez
Steve Byrnes or Pat Summerall and Bill Maas
Matt Devlin or Josh Lewin and Dale Hellestrae
Brad Sham or Dan McLaughlin and Tony Boselli
