The only thing worse than watching the Rams this year is listening to Eddie Doucette call the play by play. Is it just us or does anyone have a clue as to what's happening on the field when Eddie is calling the game? He is a disgrace. An NFL franchise in a major market such as Los Angeles should have competent announcers. KMPC must have the same philosophy as do the Rams and John Shaw, find the cheapest guy available.

Regarding your Nov. 10 Viewpoint letter that referred to Eddie Doucette as a bad announcer, several of my friends and I seriously question this judgment. We travel often from Los Angeles to San Diego on game days and tune in to KMPC because we're Rams fans and think Eddie is terrific. As women, we're not supposed to know much about football, right? Well, we don't have any trouble following Doucette's play-by-play. When Bruce, Phil and Steve asked, "Is it us when it comes to knowing what's happening on the field?"

I just had an opportunity to read your "Viewpoint" column in last Saturday's edition of The Times. I was aghast to see such a large damaging headline applied to such a petty article about Eddie Doucette. I believe Doucette does a great job of selling the Rams without much to work with this year. The article was a small viewpoint; your headline was a large injustice. THOMAS L. COLLINS Irvine

Ram radio announcer Bob Starr will not be returning next season, after all. Starr, now a radio announcer for the Boston Red Sox, had been negotiating with KMPC to return after the baseball season. "We tried to work things out, but, because of Bob's commitments, just couldn't do it," KMPC General Manager Bill Ward said. Ward said Eddie Doucette, previously hired as a fill-in for Starr, will become the permanent radio voice of the Rams.

I never thought Bob Starr was all that great a football play-by-play announcer. Then I heard Eddie Doucette. MIKE DAVISON Manhattan Beach

OK, the Portland Trail Blazers may be in a struggle to reach the NBA playoffs this season, but they lead the league in travel comfort. The 12-man basketball team flies on team owner Paul Allen's customized Boeing 757. We're talking big-screen TVs, two lounge areas, card tables and TVs that pop out of the armrests of the 35 seats--in a plane that normally seats 239. According to Boeing, a new 757 costs nearly $70 million.

For years, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar wasn't shy about saying he thought the Lakers should have erected a statue of him outside Staples Center. On Friday, standing beside the nearly 16-foot-tall, 1,500-pound statue of himself in his classic skyhook pose, Abdul-Jabbar concluded the timing of the honor was right. "I'm glad we got here before the pigeons got to it," he said, drawing laughter from an array of former NBA players, executives, family and friends. "I don't know if you remember, but I had a little too much to say that it hadn't happened right away.

Now that Phoenix and Arizona have lost their Super Bowl, and rightly so, the NFL is thinking about awarding said Super Bowl to San Diego. In my mind that's pretty funny. San Diego is one of a few major cities that has refused to name a major street after Martin Luther King Jr. Whenever it is proposed that anything be named after Dr. King in our city, the racistsrise in mass protest and you will notice that Dr. King or his legacy are not really very evident in "America's Finest City."
