WE WALK IN THE PITS

Is anyone else really annoyed with the pit announcer?

Re: WE WALK IN THE PITS

If its the same announcer as last year and at Houston, then nope. That guy's awesome.

"Hey you! . . . Knock it off!"

Re: WE WALK IN THE PITS

He needs to stop. Every single person in that place knows they are supposed to walk.

If someone's running despite that, there's probably a reason for it. Maybe they are late for a match, forgot something in their pit, ect. I can guarantee they couldn't care less at that point that there's a guy with a microphone yelling at them.

At this point he's just encouraging people to run because it's funny to hear how annoyed he can get.

If someone's running have one of the hundreds of volunteers around the pits tell them to stop. I'd bet it's a lot more effective.

Re: WE WALK IN THE PITS

In Houston he went on a mini rant. He said "if you fall and hurt yourself, it is because you were doing something wrong! You were running!"

Then he continued... "If you fall and knock out your teeth, its YOUR fault!"

I'm hoping this was a hypothetical, and not due to someone laying on the ground with a broken mouth.

Re: WE WALK IN THE PITS

I was annoyed by this all throughout Houston. Although I appreciate that he's taking his time to volunteer, all 400 teams in the pits do not need to hear about how one person near him is running.

I also think that this is very counterproductive because most of my team ended up just tuning him out because we were all getting annoyed about hearing him yell at people for running, which means we could have missed parts requests for teams who actually used the speaker system for it's intended purpose.

This is why I think speeding on the roadways is fine as well. People wouldn't be driving faster than the speed limit if they didn't have somewhere to be.

Oh that guy was funny.

I remember him yelling at someone, I paraphrase: "You in the blue shirt stop running... That does not mean run the other way... Stop Running!"

$5 to anyone running with no safety goggles on the opposite way of the robot transport path.

Not paying for any medical expenses resulting from my challenge.

And do it with scissors just because.

Seriously though, the announcer might be overdoing it but please try to avoid running in the pits. With power tools and large mobile robots about, it really isn't a safe thing to do at all.
