For all their faults, Tappen & Milbury seemed to try to be entertaining as well as informative - jokes, comments, etc. Dale & Gord just play it too straight for me to enjoy them
That is why the show seems stale to me too. The info they give is all info I know heading into the game. The opinions and analysis are cookie cutter. No entertainment value whatsoever. It might be okay for a casual fan, but for someone who eats, sleeps, and breathes the team, I find the convo on these boards more in depth & stimulating.
