National Broadcasters who show biases for/against certain teams

For me it has to be Glenn Healy. That baboon is a huge Leaf hater just because he wasn't named GM years ago and is still mad and bitter. It's even rubbed off on Hughson/Simpson, since they have started to crap on the Leafs as well recently. National broadcasters are supposed to be impartial. Just look at Rick Peckham. Whenever he calls a Tampa game for NBCSN, you can hardly tell that he is the voice of the Lightning, and that's the way it should be.

Won't set any rules for this thread. It can be any broadcaster who has done nationally televised games, BUT it has to be related to instances of bias only on national telecasts.

Friedman is one of the best in the biz IMO. The rest are kind of stooges.

Eddie O's cool with the Pens. He often has some inside info on them too.

Most broadcasters show some homerism. Sometimes it's bad, usually it's whatever.

Just add "and this wouldn't have happened if I was the Leafs GM" every time Healy makes a statement and it will fit

OK, this is rich. HNIC spent 45 minutes of the pregame show absolutely fellating the Leafs, it was way over the top. Every scrub on that team with a goal was given a segment about how wonderful they were. It wasn't all bad, I enjoyed hearing about Kostka who had to work to get there and even Kadri who has gotten all kinds of crap.

Compare that to the Habs/Sabres game earlier in the day when they talked about mostly the SABRES during the pregame.

Leaf fan has nothing to complain about here.

Healey comes off as bitter in general, I don't think it is a bias against the Leafs but life in general.

I'm surprised Hughson doesn't wear a Canucks jersey to the broadcast booth every week.

Eddie Olzcyk is a big Pens and Blackhawks homer.

I second that. He seems to try and find something to complain about.

He singled out Healy. You should read the whole post first before writing out a letter.

If HNIC had another heir apparent, maybe. I have been on Bob Cole for many years now about his slipping faculties but the man was very lucid today, quite good even. It's been a long time since Bob has been so quick with the names and play. Maybe afternoon games, before he gets tired and confused.

Are you watching the game tonight?

HNICs crew was actually complaining that the Bruins had a goal waived off because a Bruin was laying injured on the ice. They were almost crying.

Please have him back.

Hughson - Canucks homer of the 2nd highest order (Don't worry about your top spot, John Garrett)
Simpson - Said he'd refuse to play for the Leafs if drafted by them.
Healy - Read OP.
