Tonight's Final Four games were aired on TBS, with team-specific broadcasts on TNT and TruTV. This was explained to people for weeks, but it seems lots of them did not get the message—even with a large bug in the corner of the screen identifying the broadcasts as being oriented toward one of the two teams (and, of course, the distinct absence of Jim Nantz). Charles Barkley referred to the people below, on-air, as "idiots."
the announcers for UK Wildcats & the Wisconsin Badger game are biast as fuck

Rex Chapman sounds like freakin Jon Gruden. Why would TNT have Rex who is clearly biased be a commentator for a UK game? lol.

Is it just me or does TNT have the worst coverage and biased opinion about the University of Florida?
— Jeffrey Leedahl (@chitownsports72) April 5, 2014
No stake in this game, but TNT coverage seems very biased towards Florida.

Blatant biased broadcasting @canaltnt! Should be ashamed. UCONN just the other team. Embarrassing

Do the play by play callers on TNT know there is two teams playing #biased

Why would you have a former Kentucky player be a broadcaster for a Kentucky final four game? TNT is supposed to be neutral, not biased

If I wanted to listen to biased Kentucky fans as announcers, I would turn on their local radio station. Not TNT. #annoying
— Kaitlyn Waters (@kay_dubbbs) April 6, 2014
Does anyone think that TNT is biased towards Kentucky?
— Phyllis Corrick (@pecmag) April 6, 2014
Did TNT hire these announcers right off the Kentucky campus? Wow! Can they be any more biased? #FinalFour
— Scott Spurgeon (@sspurg) April 6, 2014
Good job TNT for having the most biased announcer I've ever heard. Why the heck is this game on TNT anyways?
— John LaCorte (@JLaCorte2) April 6, 2014
This production is so biased. TNT Sucks !
— Steve (@SteveWidlacki) April 6, 2014
Announcers aren't supposed to be biased - another reason TNT shouldn't broadcast in future#didntgotoeitherschool#wantobjectivereporting
— Chris Haakonson (@ChrisHaakonson) April 6, 2014
Why is a biased announcer calling a nationally televised game? This is like if TNT hired Mike Rice to call a Blazers game. Haha
— Matt Dove (@doveshow) April 6, 2014
This TruTV broadcast is so biased to the Badgers with Larrivee & Young. Both ways fellas. Geez.
