    I get that there are some teams who have a "biased" broadcast but it's really bad here...

    Creating threads for this... the officials didn't deserve to be employed after this one but that is a different matter. This was a great call by Edwards on the off chance the NHL tunes in to the different feeds. Maybe some disciplinary action for the officials.

    It is fun for rival fanbases to not like Edwards and he can be annoying at times but when a different team's TV crew is this upsetting to you....

    It would take someone actually watching Bruins games to grasp this but he often gets over excited fawning over other teams and their goals. Few homer crews do that.

    This specific example too, is such a reach. Post a Greg Campbell fight if you want to support this... original... theory of yours.

    Yes it was a pretty obvious embellishment but still most other broadcasters have more professionalism when it happens. Not to mention Marchand's hissy fit he had on the way to the box.

    Nobody could ever be more of a homer, and more embarrassing, than Joe Bowen.

    I wouldn't be at all surprised if he wore face paint and held pom poms during the broadcasts.

    Answer: absolutely yes.

    Bruins fans, is he still telling people to “suck it” on the air when the Bruins score?

    Lol between this call and the ‘trip’ call last night those two pigeons in stripes should be filling out resumes today.

    Jack IS a homer. This isn’t telling Bruin fans something they already know. At least he acknowledges there is another team on the ice most nights.

    I’ve watched enough CBC Toronto games to know what I’m getting in to there. You’d swear it was a one team scrimmage for all the talk they give anyone not in a blue jersey.

    Based on what? Daniels is one of the best in the business. Redmond's bias is for "the good old days" rather than the Red Wings.

    I dunno, I don't get what the issue is. Sometimes when I watch a game I want the announcer to be a homer. More entertaining if they are into it as well. Then watch the opposing teams feed when you want a break.

    It's the weirdest thing with Edwards. Homer announcers, even mild ones, are usually annoying to listen to. I could listen to Edwards all day though. The more homer with him, the better. The more over the top and crazy he gets, the better. Maybe it's the showmanship, where other homer announcers are just collecting a paycheck, but Edwards is awesome.

    I'm glad Marchand called him out for that dive. Good boy Brad would never ever do such a thing.
