What bothers me most is not that NFL announcers know they have the evil power to jinx placekickers and use it at their shameless discretion as they did to Robbie Gould tonight.

It's that the announcers act so shocked when the kicker misses the kick right after they call attention to his impressive dependability and accuracy.
