I can understand why an announcer should be somewhat biased, its the reason I listen to the Coyotes' announcers and not the announcers of the opposing team when I listen to games.

However, Coates take it above and beyond what I consider enjoyable to listen to. As long as the commentator does not contradict himself, the NHL rules, or common knowledge, I don't mind listening to their bias. But when a Flyer and a player on another team do the exact same thing, and he supports one and decries the other without justification for either, it is too much.
