KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City fans say they are tired of listening to Joe Buck announce Royals postseason games.

Fans say he heavily favored the Giants during last year's World Series.

A group of fans decided to start their own play-by-play broadcast of the games so they'd have an alternative stream to listen to while watching the game, according to KQTV.

People tuning in are meant to watch the game on TV while on mute, and listen to the streaming broadcast online.

The four guys don't have any on-air experience and say they talk amongst themselves as if they were in a sports bar having drinks watching the action.

"We take a light-hearted approach to it," fan broadcaster Adam Jones told KQTV. "We're here to have fun and we hope people who are listening are here to have fun."

They use the online streaming video company Rabble TV  to do their broadcasts.

They say more than 2,000 listeners tuned in to Game 4 on Tuesday, from locations around the world.
