TSN Jets

With almost a full season under our belts, whats everyone's thoughts on the Job the TSN Jets crew is doing?

My only big issue with them so far is Lawless and Order, probably because I cant stand Gary Lawless.
I much prefer watching TSN broadcasts over SN.

I don't like Sara Orlesky just can't stand her voice. I always fast forward when she or Gary come on though

It could be worse, it could be Sheri Forde or Mark Masters.

I really like the team.
I could do without Lawless but they could choose worse.

I noticed they finally broadcast in 1080i tonight... it had been 720p in the past... makes a big difference! I wonder why they took so long...

I think they've done a pretty good job. I like Dennis Beyak and the crowd noise is much more noticably than when the Jets are on CBC or other networks. And i appreciate that they show the anthems after many fans requested it.

I get TSN Jets through Centre Ice and it SUCKS when they drop them for the Sportsnet feeds when we play other Canadian teams. Sportsnet is horrible.

Keep up the good work.

My only beef is that the crowd isn't louder. Watching that NBC broadcast a few games ago, the atmosphere was that much more noticeable.

Love Beyak.

Big difference? 1080i isn't any better than 720p especially when watching sports you want to watching in 720p. P stands for progressive it's refreshs the whole image at once. I stands for Interlaced are horizontal lines being put together by your tv. With a 1080i image I notice too much flickering and the image quality it's not any better than 720p. Infact I always have my shaw hd on 720p. I can't wait till they get 1080p then you'll really notice a difference.

I'm not the grammar police, but for some reason it irritates me when Brian Engblom says "real" instead of the correct "really".

Nah, but all good though.

My only complaint is that the season is almost over, where the hell did the winter go?


P.S. If TSN is going to keep Lawless on the broadcast he should be required to get his teeth whitened, damn they are yellow!

Dennis Beyak can't see. He makes dozens on mistakes during broadcasts. Naming the wrong players all game long......

I personally can't stand Beyek. I would like to see Munz and Hnidy on the TSN Jets broadcasts next year, but I doubt that will happen.

x2. Orlesky is nice eye candy but it all ends there. She is constantly stumbling over her words. I like Beyek's voice but I have to agree that he makes one mistake after another.

I agree. For people who can't get to a game in person, the game on TSN Jets does not do the crowd noise justice.

Seeing some of the clips from that NBC Sports game shows how much TSN Jets cuts out the crowd. That NBC feed just felt like it had more energy.

Otherwise I think TSN Jets has been good. Noticeably better than CBC as we always get the CBC "D" squad and terrible quality camera work. TSN Jets has had trouble during the year sometimes with their graphic overlays, where they sometimes don't show powerplay time, or get the scores wrong.

Watching the Captials game this morning to see what I missed live, I see that they got the penalty time right last night.

Having had the chance to compare with a lot of other broadcasters, ours are really good. Engblom and Johnson are excellent. I like Beyak, too, but wish he wouldn't jabber about obscure statistics so much while the play is going on. That's what i most like about Bob Cole: as a more old-fashioned broadcaster, he recognizes that once the puck is dropped it's the players who do the entertaining, not the announcers' chit-chat. He calls the play and even if he mixes up names sometimes, Cole is genuinely interested and excited by everything that's going on. Another thing I like about our guys is that they haven't been with the team long enough to be real homers. I really like non-biased, honest coverage. Some of the other teams' broadcasters are really bad that way. I wish they could give Dan Kamal a more significant job, though ... I'd love to hear what he could do.

Very happy for the most part

Lawless is an idiot

Orlesky is terrible and not improving

Other than that I think they have done a fine job for year one.

without Sara there would be no "Thanks man... errr Lady... sorry"... Wheeler turns away and quick exit.

That alone is worth any problems that may be encountered.

I was going to post the same thing

I think TSN Jets has done a pretty good job

I like Beyak

No more Orlesky or Lawless though

Both are pretty clueless

All of my thoughts have been echoed in here. I really like Johnson and Engblom, both of them are excellent at commentary and I have no problem with Beyak

I don't like Orlesky, she stumbles over her words too much and I despise Lawless, he is absolutely terrible.

And I would to be able to hear the crowd more too give people who haven't been in the MTSC an idea of just how loud the crowd actually is

Love Beyak.
Also, go on the Caps website and watch their highlights from the game. When the winner is scored the crowd is so loud you can't even hear the play by play guy.

TSN probably went out of their way and spent extra money on broadcast-quality noise-cancelling microphones.
