I know a few that watches the other team's play by play telecast every chance there is, 50% because of Kayak and 50% for an outlook on the other teams thoughts on the Jets and insights about the opponent.

Engblom is the best of the bunch. I'm not a fan of Beyak's call. Nasally voice, makes a tonne of small gaffes, overuses a lot of terms ("tight turns"), and provides little to no insight to the game. Did he even play the sport?

Nothing better than sitting at home and seeing it was a ****** call and then having your announce team say it was a good one. That's like being forced to eat feces and having someone tell us to say "Thank you sir, can I have another?"

Maybe it's just me but does this bother anyone else?
I think it's just you, but there may be a few others.

But really, where's the line between a little bias and a lot of bias? If the Jets suck do you want them to say the Jets are a cup contender? Or "the guys are putting in a lot of effort but aren't getting results"?

And whether you're at home or in a bar, so what if you disagree with an announcer or colour man. It's one call in a 60-minute game in a long season. Move on.

They should call the game as best they can, as honestly as they can.

I think Engblom is doing a fantastic job. I mentioned it in the last BDT but I always come away learning something new when he does our games. Johnson I don't really have an opinion on.

I'm not sure about others but I don't want our announcing crew to be complete homers. I want the game called like it should be without any bias, otherwise we might as well all listen to Jack Edwards.

I was listening to whomever they have on SportsNet West for the Oilers game tonight (nothing better was on).

I'm definitely glad TSN got the Jets, not Sportsnet. While I'll give you that Beyak is Nasally, he's also pretty damn good. And I definitely appreciate their more unbiased approach. I don't need my ego stroked - just tell me like it is.

Engblom is the best in the business at what he does. compared to Mcquire, Johnson, Ferraro. He does a lot of games for NBC and TSN so he sees the entire league. I enjoy listening to his opinions on the Jets because he is comparing them to the rest of the teams from ice level

Engblom is the best color man around. I first noticed him doing between period analysis during the Oil-Canes Final. He's super smart and does a great job communicating his points. A lot of color guys like to ******** around. Engblom gets it right every time.

Beyak, though. Man, this guy is like 5 seconds behind every play. How many times has he called Kane's name when it's Burmistrov. I mean, 8 and 9 look kind of similar in the Jets' font. But if I can tell...

Dan Kamal should have been retained to do play-by-play and promoted from radio to TV. Shame what happened to him.

Personally, I like Hnidy. Wish we could hear more from him.

However, anything on TSN is better than CBC. Good Lord it's awful.

Anyone with any doubt or frustration with the TSN crew obviously didn't watch todays game on CBC.

I don't like Mike Johnson. I really enjoyed having Shane Hnidy doing colour even when the game he did was against the team he won a cup with. He has more in-tell with the players today then Mike Johnson does.

Good - Johnson
Better - Hnidy
Best - Engblom/Ferraro

Dennis "Hyponasal" Beyak vs Mark "Melatonin" Lee....I'l take the sound of Beyak's nasal cavity every game!
