I'm a Leafs fan, and I love Jack. He's hilarious, he's passionate about the Bruins, and he actually gets up and excited when the opposition scores. The latter rarely happens, even with some of the best commentators, who are often much "bigger" when their own team scores than when the Bruins score.

Did you miss the part where he was saying to the trainer "I was trying to draw 5"? He wasn't really hurt. As soon as he realized a 5 minute major wasn't going to be called, he magically gets up and skates off.

Marchand is the dirtiest rat in the league. He's indefensible.

This thread is about Jack Edwards, not your qualms with the Bruins. We all understand that you're bitter, but nobody wants to hear about it, especially here, in the JACK EDWARDS thread.

I don't exactly hate Jack Edwards, but if there's a choice I'd rather not listen to him. He does know the game very well and is great at keeping up with the play, one of few announcers who goes off track to tell stories as the play happens, but I CANNOT stand his homerism.

I get it, he's the Bruins commentator, he's supposed to show a bit more love to the home team Bruins than the visiting teams, that's obvious. But the extent to which he takes it irritates me, and thats just my own personal opinion.

The one thing I really can't stand about him is when there's a fight, if you were listening to the radio and Edwards was calling it you'd think the Bruins player was beating the holy hell out of the opposing player, but that's just not the case

I personally hate listening to him but he is a home team announcer, the only people he has to please is Bruins fans. If he is doing that he is doing his job.

Who are you, the expert lip reader?

Newsflash, just because Michael Felger says something does not mean its true. I love him/hate him as much as everybody else, but unless you listen to Boston sports radio on a daily basis, you really cant go off of one thing that he says.

Just because it looks like someone is saying something, does not mean thats what they are saying. Have you ever played with "elephant juice?" It looks like your saying "I love you." Or try to figure out what it looks like your saying when you say "vacuum."



And no, Marchand is most definitely not the "dirtiest rat in the league." He plays on the edge, and plays to win. He is aggressive, and yeah maybe he will give you a hack to the back of the legs when the refs aren't looking, or he'll give you a quick jab and get away with it. Big deal. Its hockey. Stop your crying about it and if you feel you need to go make a 15 minute video on it.

And those 3 "dives" people claim he had during the Caps series...One of them he came up bleeding, the other one the Caps players skate was behind him and created a minor slew foot, and the one where he went down after getting pushed in the back? Anyone who played hockey and looked at the position his skates were in knows that he barely had any balance in that position. The guys 5'9'' 180.

It is unbelievable how much of HF doesn't know how to use the word 'bias'.

A person cannot be bias. They are biased, not bias.

For such a frequently tossed around word, you'd think people would have it right by now.

He is the only PBP guy worse than Rick Jeannerette.

Honestly, Boston has to be the most annoying team in the league.

Worst PBP
Worst anthem singer
Worst diver (cough*Marchand*cough)
Worst personality (Tim Thomas)

It amazes me when bruins fan get the he is 180 excuse to defend Marchand...the guy is a rat and one of the if not the worst in the league and he has multiple plays to prove that...

Lol what? Worst anthem singer? This is a thing? Rene is a fun anthem singer that's harmless. Does nothing out of the ordinary other than a fist pump. Worst diver Marchand? Marchand dives every once in a while for sure, but the worst? Subban and Lapierre are easily worse. Marchand hasn't dived once this year. Tim Thomas has a bad personality but isn't on the team this year and I'm sure there are much worse personalities in the NHL. Maybe you just have a vendetta against them so everything seems more annoying than it actually is?

He's one of the only local PBP guys for any team that I've ever seen get excited when the opposition scores. His call of Game 7 against Carolina a few years back still haunts, you'd have thunk the Bruins won the game going off of his voice alone.

This thread actually tells you a lot more about what people want from their local play-by-play guys than it does Jack Edwards.

For me, I prefer the "no BS" PBP guy will will say when the other team is looking good, when our team is looking bad, when a penalty is missed against my team or the other team, etc. They don't need to be 100% neutral on everything as I consider myself knowledgeable enough to separate fact from fiction, but I also don't want to be lied to.

Jim Jackson, Keith Jones and Bill Clemente are fine for me when they cover the Flyers. Coatsey is our resident Flyer fanboi and idiot. I definitely don't care for him at all.

He's much better than that drunk color commentator that I had to listen to tonight for the Devils. My god is he atrocious. It's like listening to my grandfather ramble on about life while taking a sip of bourbon after every noun.

Can there be a test of some kind where someone has to prove they've heard a game which Jack has called before posting about him?

Jack Edwards---it really is a love him or hate him with very little in between. His phrases that he utters can be enjoyable, but he really is a homer.

Edwards is a great play by play guy, but he only goes into hyper-homer mode when things get chippy on the ice.

Brickley is the all-around terrible one between the two.
