Renegade, you just hit on one of the most important (but under-reported) facts.... most of these guys spew info as if they're experts, but it is impossible for them to have seen these guys enough to be experts.
The "analysts" on TSN, Sportsnet (especially) and CBC crack me up. They pontificate about teams or players as if they're experts when even a cursory glance at their personal schedules would show they certainly aren't seeing these players/teams live, if at all.
Doug MacLean (the biggest blow-hard in media if you ask me) was blatantly caught in this the other night when he went on in depth about each play in the Leaf game that he had clearly watched. Then, moments later, he went on a rant about how poor the Habs D is and how lousy each player was that night when he had just admitted he watched the other game.
My round-about point? These guys often know less than the fans.
