A plea to Fox Sports North

PLEASE GET RID OF TERHAAR

Easily the worst play by play man, or in the discussion as the worst. This guys a nightmare. His voice cracks constantly, he messes up names, he is an enormous homer, he fails to see even the simplest of things...

I would kill a man to get John Forslund from Carolina here.. I love that guy.

Time to promote Mazzacco?

Just kidding, he annoys me as much as Terhaar. Sometimes your just stuck with them. What's Gary Thorne doing nowadays?

ESPN hockey, baseball and Baltimore Orioles games on MASN. Which reminds me, can FS North please actually use an alternate channel and stop tape-delaying games?

I think Thorne is in a pretty hefty deal with the Orioles, so he's probably a no-go, as much as I'd love it.

I wonder if we could get the Atlanta play-by-play guy. This has to be a more attractive job than being there. I've always really liked that guy. Good voice, good hockey sense, down to earth. I am fine with Greenlay, he's been a lot better in his homerism this year.

I'm just glad I'm not a Gopher fan and have to listen to Anthony LaPanta. Can't stand him as a PBP guy. Great in the studio (not that I watch any of that tomfoolery anyways), but he's not meant to be a PBP guy.

I'd actually like Bomber to be full-time but he'd probably be the color commentator.

I agree, though, Terhaar is bad. I'm sure its hard to see guys sometimes but he will say Nolan is Havlat or Koivu...c'mon, one shoots right and the other two shoot left. That, in addition to many other things.

Just another random note...but I have seen the BJ's feed a few times and they were very objective, factual and just called the game. No dumb comments. Maybe I just saw one good game.

The worst is Errey and Steigerwald or whatever in Pit. This is the first year I haven't had Center Ice but those two, along with the guys from Anaheim make Dumb and Dumber look good...

I don't like those Columbus guys from what I have seen, I dunno, they just rub me the wrong way.

After watching him do the play-by-play for the SCSU-Northern Michigan game, what are people's thoughts on Clay Matvick?

Bumped into him at The Sports Garden in Duluth a few years back after the Bulldogs got done owning the Gophers... he's a midget. And he couldn't successfully take advantage of drunken college girls.

Those are my thoughts.

Terhaar is horrible. I can't stand him either, it wouldn't be so bad if he didn't always say the wrong names, that's like really important.

If you listen to the game winning goal that Havlat scores against the Flames (it was the Avalanche) I think...I think it was the first game back from the olympic break, it's got to be one of the funniest things I've ever heard.

I'll see if I can find it...

I couldn't find the FSN feed, but here's the goal, try to find the FSN feed and it's great.

Well apparently he will be having a lot of free time.

On the plus side:

Seriously... that's like saying "we're letting Kevin McHale go and replacing him with Isiah Thomas."

I love me some Mazzacco, but I don't think he'd work doing the NHL.

I don't mind Lapanta, like Matvick, loathe Terhaar. Bombardir is clumsy, and really isn't all that insightful as a former player.

Seriously, we haven't had a decent PBP guy since Mike Goldberg. That's just sad.

They need to give Wooger a "Coaches Corner" like segment. He's seriously Minnesota's version of Don Cherry.

Actually I think the Wolves might have already done that.

True, it's too bad he's moved onto bigger and better things with UFC.
