Good thing they're making up for it by having the best Team in the NHL.

Um, no?

Andy Brickley is one of the best in the business...What are you even talking about...Nobody ever says anything bad about Andy Brickley.

Best in the business IMO.
That's what I do when I'm watching fight videos, when Edwards is just calling a game he's fairly tolerable, it's when he's calling a fight that he gets on my nerves.

Wrong.

Meh. Rene is awful but he is cherished.

Wrong. Kesler is 1,000 times the diver.

Wrong. Evander Kane is the biggest ****** bag in the league.

Marchand is the dirtiest rat in the league. He's indefensible.
You know that CONSTANTLY whining and *****ing will not change the result of game 7? Or game 6? Or game 4? Or game 3?

Your team is known LEAGUE wide as a bunch of floppers. Meanwhile, you stand on a soapbox screaming "but, but, but, look at THEM!!!!" Doesn't it get lonely screaming all by yourself after awhile?

You've got to give him credit though, the time he spends on his crusade is admirable if not troubling.

That Daily Show video? good god

I'll bet that's because most people don't know who he is. Edwards is a celebrity on here though, but listen to an NESN broadcast and you'll know by no later than the end of the first period than Andy is an unashamed homer, and sometimes doesn't even know how to pronounce player names. His adequacy as a color guy is average, but he doesn't stand out. His aforementioned drawbacks are horrendous though. I love Edwards' competency in his play-calling, fair assessment or not, but Brickley I legitimately want to sock in the face at times.

Sorry, I see it all the time on HF boards, but this is killing me. The word you are looking for is "biased" not bias. Bias is a noun, biased is an adjective.

I.e., "Jack Edwards calls the game with a bias. Jack Edwards is biased."

Well then perhaps we can just agree that BOTH of our teams are a bunch of dirty, no-good floppers? That seems like a nice compromise. (and frankly, far more realistic than picking one team over the other as "dirty")

Edwards used to really annoy me until I stopped taking him seriously and realized he's putting on a character. The guy is the Stephen Colbert of Hockey. He knows his stuff, and can be hilarious if you don't get uptight about everything he says.

I like Edwards. If I can't listen to Cango and Chico (admitted homer here), the Boston and Dallas broadcast teams are the ones I enjoy the most.

I actually like Jack. Believe it or not, he does give praise to other teams and emphasizes when they score a big goal. He has man crushes on guys like Suter, Parise, and Nash, and it's quite evident whenever the Bruins play against them. I really get a kick out of his catch phrases. It does help that we've got arguably the best color guy in the business in Andy Brickley, though.
But, with that said, as hard as it might be to believe, Jack isn't even the biggest homer announcer in Boston. Not even close. For those who watch the NBA, have you listened to Tommy Heinsohn doing Celtics games? Awful. Absolutely awful. The guy thinks it's a conspiracy theory whenever the C's are whistled for a foul. Quite literally.

2011 is alive and well in this thread.

As for Edwards, I can take him or leave him. He has his moments, but can get annoying.

Edwards is very entertaining and one of the best play by play guys. He's a homer when it comes to fights and penalties.

By FAR, worst homers are Pens crew. Sometimes it seems they don't even want to mention that the other team scored.

You'd love Edwards if you played the habs 6 times a year, then playoffs. He's hilarious.

Agree, on both counts. I think when the Bruins win, his pain level slowly rises even more.
