Potvin no better than american announcers..

I watch plenty of American announced games and every single one of the announcers is bias. Towards the team they are hired by of course.. I tend to mute must of those games as I can't handle some of the things these guys get away with..

I love watching my sens games on sportsnet.. I don't mind Dean Brown at all.... but potvin... every single time there is a call against us he complains..

Can we please get hockey announcers? and not ottawa senator announcers? When there's a bad call against us.. fine.. but every single time.. I can't handle this guy anymore.

watching games on TSN has become more enjoyable because of this guy.

I love Denis. I used to hate him like you, but it's good to see people that cheer for a team.

The Sportsnet Ottawa team is geared toward Ottawa Senators fans.

If a CBC announcer is biased, then there's a problem.

I like him. Sens homers are rare commodity and its nice to FINALY have one after listening to Toronto based broadcasters trash this team for over a decade. Deal with it.

I like him. I don't care about being bias free if he's doing the local feed because guess what, that's the only people who should be watching. Plus he's hilarious.

Uncle Denis is really funny.

I wish I got to listen to him more often, but streams are always the other team's feed.

Regional broadcasts should be biased imo. The casual fan wants to hear about why the team he or she cheers for is the ****.

I am actually this close to emailing a complaint to Sportsnet about him. It's not the fact that he's a homer that annoys me while listening to him, it's that everything that comes out of his mouth is just plain ridiculous.

Good. Do that.

I'd love to see someone waste an hour out of their life to complain about someone who is generally loved.

I don't know how long it takes you to type, but it would take me 5 mins at the most to write up a complaint email.

I can't even imagine how long it took you to type out that post

It was obviously tongue in cheek.

It would be a waste of your time. 84.8%* of Sens fans love him.










*My %'s are made up.

Btw, I've never heard bias being a specific knock on American broadcasters. The thing I've noted is general lack of knowledge but bias is to be expected for regional games whether they be Canadian or American. Potvin has plenty of knowledge being on of the top 5 defensemen of all time and a personality to go along with it.

I feel Potvin calls it as it is a lot of the time. He was a hockey player, he knows his stuff. He is a bit of a homer, but a lot of the times he is right on the money. We get screwed a lot by the refs. It isn't just a conspiracy, it has been well known since the Shaefer incident.

isn't that his mother?

As far as Potvin it's about time we had a homer on one network Sportsnet I'm sick and tired of the TSN and CBC Leafs homers calling our games.

He's obviously biased but who cares?

My favorite thing is how his voice sounds like he is on old time radio

Potvin is the best colour guy we've ever had, he's great. I find it hard to believe these complaints from a fanbase that has had the likes of Greg millen and Gordon Wilson as colour.

I love Potvin, my favourite part about him is when he starts a sentence, has no idea how he's going to finish it, and then does it in the most ridiculous way possible! He's amazing.

I def agree he's an upgrade over Wilson who would literally almost be in tears when a call didn't go the Sens way.
