There are very few good announcers/colour guys around. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks JJ has really turned into a homer the past couple of years, I can barely listen to him anymore because every time a Flyer takes a SHOT he makes it seem like it's a scoring opportunity. If I'm in another room and hear it I always think I missed something but I've started to tune him out. Coatsey has always just been a drunk who adds little to the game.

It sucks that Clement is in semi-retirement mode because he's so much better than the others. I like Jones as well but JJ and Coatsey dumb him down.

I really miss the days when announcers would just call games and not worry about how the team reacts to them if they're being honest. These guys aren't on the same level of putridity as the Boston and Pittsburgh guys, but they're not very good either.
