HA HA!! Yup I love JJ. The diffrence is he is the Flyers commentator unlike the crew calling last night's game who are supposed to be unbiased. But their bias was coming thru loud and clear!!

I can't stand Coates or JJ anymore. Coates has always been an embarrassment but you put up with him because he's like the wacky uncle that comes over but a few times a year for holiday dinners but otherwise keep your distance from.

JJ used to be really good, you expect them to want the team to win but the out and out fear of calling out any play or player has gotten ridiculous. I've only watched the 2nd period tonight and twice he's questioned whether a Panther player really kept the play onside. I know this is a league wide thing now where home announcers never criticize their own team but for a league that constantly changes the game and wants to grow the game, they are doing a disservice to people who are trying to learn the game. How are they supposed to learn when the announcers keep painting a different picture than what's actually happening? And for people who do know the game, do they think they are pulling the wool over our eyes?

The constant denial of almost any penalty to a Flyer is another issue. It just happened again tonight when they were feeling sorry for Schenn's hit from behind while also saying he drove the guys head into the glass!

Can Coatsey actually read or how does he manage to butcher the "quote of the game" so often?

Was at the game last night, anybody else think Lou's "Are you ready for some hockey?" is a little cheesey.

What's wrong with Coatsey's nose? On TV it looks like the end of his nose is prosthetic. It's a different color

Does anybody else think that hockey is the hardest sport to do play by play? Constant line changes, guick pace, European names, etc...Props to Jim Jackson.

I don't see how anyone can dislike JJ or Coatsey. They focus on being objective and fair, and the only complaint I hear about them is that they aren't tough enough on calls or the players, that's the coach job .

I like Doc and Pierre too, except the other night where they jumped on a train about Harry Z getting a call from Brendan Shanahan, you wouldn't see someone like JJ do that.

Plus Tastykakes.

P.S: and a lot of other announcers suck!

The one thing I liked about Doc the other night against Washington was that he's not afraid to talk about the possible shutout, whereas Jim Jackson seems to be avoiding it lately. I'm not sure if I remember correctly, but was it that in one of the broadcasts years ago he was talking about it and then shortly thereafter the shutout was broken? I have it somewhere in the back of my mind that he then later once talked about this and said someone "complained" or something for jinxing it. Still, I'd like him to not avoid this issue, because it's stupid to do so.

Did anyone else catch JJ the other night against the Pens seriously contemplating whether the Flyers vs. Penguins rivalry is the best rivalry in sports right now?

Well, what does "in sports" mean if not "in all of sports"?

I'm not saying they're right or wrong, but just to play Devil's advocate, what rivalry/rivalries would you put ahead of this one?

I know it's the same thing but ALL adds emphasis and that is what they were trying to convey which I thought was funny.

As far as Devil's advocate....I would put one of the major sports league rivalries (Football, basketball and to an extent baseball) ahead of a hockey one. Right now one doesn't come to mind

Oh, don't get me wrong, this rivalry is awesome, and you know you have something good going on when local tabloids are painting the opposition's star in a dress. But I don't think it comes close to, say, Barcelona vs. Real Madrid, Partizan vs. Crvena Zvezda, some of the English Premier League rivalries etc.

Oh, we're going World Football then eh? Sure that definitely counts, but I have a funny feeling JJ was limiting what he meant at the time to the 4 major North American team sports. I don't know how well he knows La Liga or the Premier League.

He probably thinks "El Clasico" is a burrito at Taco Bell.

The Comcast crew is a decent bunch of announcers, I just hate between periods when they have that asshat Michael Barkan chatting with Al Morganti. Morganti is a good hockey guy, but Barkan is a complete *********!

At least the Flyers colour men used to play the game. Jones was the Hartnell of his day, Clement was a mediocre player on a very good Flyers team ( the last Cup winning teams for this franchise), and then there's Coatsey. A horrible player who took a few shifts for a vey bad Detroit team in the 70's.
The Coatsey's Corner segment is actually a take on the Coaches Corner segment of Hockey Night In Canada, hosted by the true hockey legend Don Cherry! I love "Grapes" Cherry, he loves the rough stuff ( good hits, good fights etc.) but he hates the cheap shots.
Steve Coates would love to be Don Cherry, but falls woefully short. Sort of like the Flyers do when choosing goaltenders since the Hextall years!

This is how I feel about JJ. I hate his constant shouting. His voice makes me cringe when he does it. I like Emrick, but JJ's Shouty McYellerson style of broadcasting is annoying.

I used to think Milbury was an ass, but I have to say I've really enjoyed his analysis during the intermissions when the game is shown on CSN. I think it's much better than the stuff we're getting on a regular basis with Morganti and Boruk, and that thing he has where he can actually play a sequence, pause it and mark what he wants himself is also pretty sweet.

This has been Milbury's best year for analysis, I think. At least that I can recall.

Milbury won me over with his Ovie rant a couple of weeks ago.

I still think Keith Jones rant on Radulov in the playoffs last year was better though.
