I cant with the complete homerism of the Bruins announcers. 

agreed...those B announcers are absolutely pathetic. They are one bunch where I always turn down the volume as I simply cannot listen to their rhetoric and BS...mind you Boston is pretty good. Give them the Sabres for a while and they'd change their tune. I sure wish we could just win one lousy Cup for RJ; or for that matter, maybe just play a stinkin' playoff game

Is the rule six feet? Sabres defenders should be OK. (It's so very easy.)

I actually don't think they're that bad. Their intermission crew is actually far more critical of the Bruins play than our lot is of the Sabres. I've seen games where the Bruins were up 2-0 and they've been talking about how they have to be better at this or that, meanwhile we're down 2-0 and you listen to things like "it was a good effort" and such. They are biased like all home town announcers, but they hold them to a higher standard as well.

As for the Ottawa thing it's absolutely hilarious that that argument phone call took place on Valentine's day and he told the owner directly the best thing he could do for the team was leave town for a while. Too funny.

Really you can stand listening to Jack the worm.. his voice sounds like mush and Brickley has the worst takes ever...  I usually go over to the opposing teams announcers...

Last night I listened to the Burgh announcers... talk about bland though... I think I'd take Bastan announcers over them.

What, you don't like Jack Edwards suggesting that Chara should murder Maroon?

When I had season tickets there, Darren Puppa was tending goal for them.

When I was boy, Goalies didn't wear masks.  They ate rubber, and had no teeth......and they liked it!

I don't have anti Boston hate. I find overall (with some exceptions) announcers tend to be similar to their teams. Pittsburgh for example constantly whine about non calls just like Crosby does. Boston, well they are like Bostonians. Loud, arrogant, opinionated and they love the rough stuff, just like the fans. Buffalo, not going to talk about RJ since he is a bit of a shadow or echo of a previous bygone era, but the current crop are bland, uninspiring and very forgiving. Dull, like a lot of the hockey.

Hockey broadcasts have changed and they are difficult to listen to. It's all conversation now and little play by play...the old days of Ted Darling and Hockey Night in Canada are long gone...in those days the analyst only spoke when play was stopped. You can tell RJ gets annoyed when Ray keeps talking after play has started......and Ray is an idiot

Yep. Saw that. Their number of infected and deaths are damn significant.  Especially considering the size of the population.

 

(I had a bunch more to say, but I deleted it. It’s not the right thread for it lol)

My guess? Many, many NHL (and SC playoff) games will be played in front of empty arenas. The people whom I know personally and trust on such matters are essentially unanimous (okay, it's 3 people, but still): This thing is about to bust wide open in the U.S.

It's the difference between guys who came up calling radio only and guys who went straight to tv. The radio guys without fail do a better job at painting a picture with words than the tv guys. Baseball is no different.

Wise choices to attempt to slow the spread. My thread was shut down on this, but, I cannot post in the oval office due to my political passions. All I'll say is, my family friend in Japan, who is in the know, says prepare for it to get much worse. Much of what IS NOT being reported specifically to avoid a panic is what he is in reference to. I'm no medical guy by any stretch, but when someone with that kind of access to a foreign gov'ts actual numbers and is indirectly involved in global planning on this, I pay attention.

Schrodingers media, which is where the media is stirring up a panic and under-reporting at the same time. 🙂
