It's terrible most nights. Why do they feel the need to show the guy talking in the many "pre-game" interviews that they do. For **** sakes do we really need to watch the guy talking while the game is going on? I think audio of it will do just fine.
Amongst the many Fox gaffs tonight what really got my goat, I held back from expoding in the GDT, Gare and Rimmer talked about everything during the overtime but the freaking game on the ice. They where talking so much Rimmer almost missed Vermettes goal, I think he almost choked when the goal was scored because he was talking about something else...
I hate the production when they show a guy leaving the ice, closing the door and sitting down, all while the play is going on. If there's action on the ice, we want to see it, not a player leaving the ice. And the fact they cut away from scrums or take 5 seconds to get a camera on a fight is beyond words.
I'd say this is whining. FSOhio is doing a pretty good job in my opinion. I also like Rimer and Gare.
I watched the Canadian feed from the Oilers game, Rogers Sportsnet or whatever. Terrible, commercial breaks every 2 minutes making me crazy

I'm just glad we can watch the games, I have no problem with the broadcasts or the announcers.
You gotta love it when people start complaining that other people complain too much.
Fact is, everyone is perfectly justified in taking FSN-Ohio down a notch. The product that Columbus fans get is simply inferior to what almost every other team gets, and if you watch NHL Center Ice regularly, you will realize that.
- Calling a team the wrong name, or saying you're in the wrong city, if you don't immediately correct yourself, is inexcusable
- Consistently failing to keep the net in the frame during those behind-the-net camera angles, or cutting away to show a player climbing onto the bench while a scoring chance is occurring, is inexcusable
- Letting typos like "Json Williams" and "Shots on Goals" go on for multiple games in a row is inexcusable
- Cutting to a commercial in the middle of a goal review is inexcusable
And it goes on, and on, and on. Certainly Rimer and Gare aren't the only ones at fault, but they are a part of the problem. We have every right to complain when this stuff goes on for so long without change.
Rimer and Gare screw up from time to time. I can mostly accept it, but sometimes it would be nice if someone in the truck would let them know and ask them to correct themself. And I completely agree with hossua on the misspelling of words on the screen and minor things like that. Attention to detail isn't the best with their production crew it seems. But what do I know.
