Just a side point...
You know, as an Anglo married into a french family, I never could understand why francophones were so hung up on the quality of language in broadcasts. Lecavalier this, Tremblay that... complaining about Brunet and Demers....
Then I got to thinking....as an anglo, you never hear play by play or color by someone with poor diction on an English broadcast. It is not even a possibility, unless you endure NASCAR on TV. So, I have not been bothered for years by people mispronouncing words and using poor diction.
I could see being really pissed if I had to listen to someone with speaking Ebonics or with a think southern drawl and "way out there" expressions.
