Favorite/Least Favorite local/national sports/hockey guys

Who do you like and who do you hate?

I like the Buffalo News guys

I like Neal and Razor.

On WGR, the only one I don't like besides K-Sly, is Sal Capaccio. He just sounds stupid and contradicts himself a lot. He also stakes out a position, gets it shot down by whoever he's on with, then 30 minutes later echoes the position of the guy who shot him down. LOL.

Nationally, I'll admit it...I like Milbury! lol
I also like Roenick.

Hate everyone at the News besides Graham and Vogl, I like Howard, Jeremy, and Sal even though I think Howard doesn't do enough research into some of the positions he espouses. I like Bulldog but I can't stand Schopp. Nationally I like Lebrun and Burnside. Milbury is an ass who, every time he opens his mouth, it astonishes me that he once had a high level job in hockey.

LOL.

Maybe it's because I'm from downstate, but I love the obnoxious loudmouths.

Bring John Madden (football) out of retirement and put him in the booth with Harry Neale and Rob Ray.

Everyone hates Milbury.

Serious? I don't mind Vogl. Beyond him, it's a clown show over there.

I'm not local anymore, but any local hockey guy I listen to or read leaves me frustrated. The TBN is a joke, except for Vogl but he's not very insightful.

Nationally, of course Milbury is a mental tree stump, but I especially hate Jack Edwards. Not sure he counts as an announcer, but I'd really enjoy being able to go to a Bruins game, find him in the booth and knock a tooth out right when he's in the middle of another smart--- comment about how invincible they are.

Sal is a little wish-washy sometimes, but I like him a lot. He's not afraid to be wrong and change his positions. He's never a dick, like some other WGR personalities, when he does take a strong position.

Bulldog is alright when Schopp isn't around.

I used to get annoyed by Jeremy White, but he's grown on me a lot. He can be very adamant when he takes a position, but he does try his best to make sure that position makes sense.

Kris Baker is, of course, awesome.

Others that I like or don't mind: Vogl, Howard Simon, Paul Hamilton (sometimes), Matthew Cower (sp?), Brian Duff, Mike Robitaille
Those who I do not like: Harrington, Gleason, Sullivan, Schopp, Mike Milbury

Tim Graham is Buffalo's best sports journalist.

Like:
+Pierre McGuire (knows his stuff)
+Panger
+Keith Jones

Dislike:
-Bucky Gleason (guy is more biased than, less informed than, and grinds a personal axe more than some of the polarizing non-logical posters on the main pages for HFBoards. I no longer read TBN online because of him. Would rather have no local information than what he provides)
-Milbury (just have a hard time respecting his opinion and commentary)

Hot and cold:
+-Jeremy Roenick

Graham is fine. But he barely chimes in about hockey anymore. I exclude him from TBN's Big Four on hockey: Vogl, Harrington, Gleason, Sullivan.

If they could spend more time covering the Sabres and less time being martyrs, that would be fantastic.

I like Joe Beninati. I think he calls a great game. I liked him from his time on Versus/OLN. When Jeanneret retires, I'd love for him to become the voice of the Sabres.

Pass on Jack Edwards. There are homers. Then there's Edwards.

Graham's good. I talked to him a few years ago regarding the Bills, when he was at ESPN. Seemed pretty nice. Current ESPN AFC coverage is not close to where it was with Graham.

Some people love reading very negative, heavily biased, anti-Sabres, anti-GM, anti-owner garbage. When one can point to a writer and they have positive/negative articles at roughly 50%, that's a good writer. The fans/posters who are highly negative are probably the biggest fans of TBN writers on the whole. I'm sure there are one, maybe two writers more even tempered and logical in their analysis at TBN. But that's not always the sexy negative thing to eat up by the dramatic negative fans. It takes all kinds.....
