Is there anyone we actually like? Or do we really believe there's an ulterior motive behind every broadcast team?
Nope. I don't understand why people care so much about commentators. We have alot of good broadcast crews for the leafs. Maybe people are just pissed off at something else but like to complain about **** that has nothing to do with why they are pissed.
For some odd reason I am fond of Henny. He has this calm voice that is perfect as an interviewer, his only discredit is he has the weakest questions ever. "Reimer, how are you feeling? What did you have for breakfast? "Alright, back to you Joe!"
Oh, and I don't actually mind either Millen or Bowen. Millen irritates me but Bowen is just awesome.
Since moving out west I catch a lot more streams from other markets and have come to prefer listening to non-toronto market games. I guess Bowen has an OK voice for it, but I find him kind of annoying. Millen gives the broadcast a friendly vibe, but a lot of what he says just seems out of touch reality.
I think the play by play guy from BUF is particularly good, though Neale is kinda meh.
I don't mind Millen (probably because I don't really listen to colour commentators anyways) but I hate Leafs tv broadcasts. I can't put my finger on anything specific, but it just seems so...gloomy and blah. Maybe one of you can put your finger on it, but Sn or tsn broadcasts seem to keep me more interested.
Been saying how brutal Millen is for years...I just dont get why they keep paying this guy money. He adds absolutely nothing to the game, just there saying something now and again that is already obvious to everyone and collects his paycheck at the end of the day. No humor, nothing interesting and his voice is enough to irritate the hell out of you.
I hate Millen because he doesn't like ANYONE.... honestly, the guy never has anything good to say about anyone. Yeah, it's fine to hate on the Leafs because we haven't been good, but the guy goes on about every little deficiency in every player's game.
Gets on my nerves... I definitely don't think he's homer.
