On topic, what bugs me the most about Chico (and a slew of other regional announcers in all sports) is his habit of referring to the hometown players by their first names.

"Boy Zach is doing all he can out there."

"Jamie gets off a hard shot..."

It just reaks of unprofessionalism, and gives the impression that they see the players as their buddies. You expect a local announcer to be a fan of a team, but this is just one of those things that makes it blatantly obvious that they're incredibly biased.
This post. Sums up an intelligent argument as to why Chico is a homer instead of childish reasons like his voice/toupee etc. etc.

I cannot stand the first-name basis crap and his tangents that end up making absolutely zero sense when the sentence is finished.

I was forced to watch MSG+ on internet streams or not see the game at all. Put a gun to me.
