RDS could just snap a ticker to the bottom part of the screen with twitter feeds from guys at tsn and the Lavoie becomes completely irrelevant. Would cost a few minutes time of labor from an IT guy, and the news would come in a few minutes faster.
There you go......RORO-INFORMATEUR, without the smug face and slick hair.
Mario Tremblay can't remember the name of any players. Gagnon try to sound intellectual, while he never talks about anything really, cept' talk about Karlsson's hotness; it works for him, he saw there was a spot for analysts who can write texts (wich is very rare at RDS) and don't sound like a common place of ******** Bergeron-Letigre.
I'm following 4 insiders on tweeter, and Renaud Lavoie is always the last to report a news. It's almost like if he was following the same insiders I follow, then rewrite their tweets. It's a loss for RDS nonetheless.
I was watching the TVA Sports show "Le Premier Trio" last night. It sucks again this year. Absolutly horrible how TVA Sports butchered their main show last year for this. It's three guys talking about absolutly nothing new, it's like they have zero material and a weak research team. Cannot believe Louis Jean left Sportsnet for this.
Whomever made all those changes at TVA Sports should be fired. Hopefully Lavoix coming in will change things.
Genius would have been if he predicted this before these discussion started. Otherwise it was a gamble, where he picked up a larger paycheck, and had a nice fall back position on the regular TVA network if it went down the tubes.
He is sitting looking pretty at the moment though, that is for sure.
I think he is alright. Nothing ever ground breaking gets reported first by him, but, he is in there, getting his nose dirty and working.
Much better than the "experts" on the RDS staff that never venture very far, or talk to anyone but their friends.
Don't know why everyone is so down on this. It's actually great news. As TVA will be the main carriour of NHL games in French, they needed to shor up some talent and get better broadcasters. Hope this continues and a few of my TSN favorites jump ship to Sportsnet, which will eventually happen.
