What do you mean? Glenn is a Liverpool fan, you really can't go wrong with that!

To be honest, I haven't noticed that Calle is a homer. The games I've watched and he has been the expert have mostly been Flyer games. There was one game when the Flyers actually played the Red Wings with him as the expert, but I didn't pay attention to any homerism. It could be there as you say but I haven't noticed it. I like his stories about his time in the NHL, and the general knowledge about the league etc. I think he does well as an expert as well in the studio.
