The interesting thing about Jack Edwards is that about 10 years ago, he was fired from ESPN's coverage of the US Soccer Team because he was too much of a "homer". I thought that was kind of ridiculous, but he is obviously a ridiculous homer on the Bruins broadcasts.
I've found that most broadcasts are very home-team centric, and some worse than others, i.e. Pittsburgh and Boston. At least with Boston's, Edwards and Brickley know the game. I can't say that about Pittsburgh's. Most of the issues I have with the broadcasts are less with the play-by-play guys, and more with the "color commentators". I really don't need to hear about their personal lives. The worst ones are the ones that broadcast the games like they're broadcasting to a middle school, i.e. screaming like schoolgirls when their team scores. The Tampa radio guy is the worst when it comes to this, as well as Dan Kamal when Atlanta had a team.
