I think Tremblay should have just logged onto a message board and posted his little rant there.
Anyway, I like a certain amount of "unprofessionalism" in my RDS broadcasters. We are all Habs fans watching it anyway (except for Tremblay maybe), and I don't know if he's ever watched a regional/local broadcast for any other team if he thinks it's unusual for a member of the broadcast team to clearly identify himself as a fan of the team. I don't think Brunet is amongst the worst transgressors in that respect either. What I don't like is when a broadcaster shows individual player biases. Team bias, great, I already have that anyway, and they're welcome to reinforce it, that helps strengthen the competitive/adversarial aspect of a sporting event, which is part of the entertainment value. Player bias, well, I like to have my own ones there and don't appreciate having somebody voice different ones.
