I personally prefer neutral broadcasters that know what they're talking about.

In actual practice, this isn't possible... as I don't care who you are, if your job is to spend a ton of time around one team, call all of their games, travel with 'em, etc. you're going to end up pulling for 'em -- if nothing else, because you want to call playoff games and all that good stuff.

Now, that natural homerism is fine... but when it gets over the top, it's just grating (to me anyway).
