The reporter/chroniquer/analyst that you hate the most

I know some people here have a special kind of hate against either PJ Stock or Francois Gagnon, and it's clearly deserved. However, I wanted to ask you, people, which one you despise whenever you hear. The one that gets you enraged, and makes you want to punch the wall because he's hypocrite, dumb and populist.

For a time, I couldn't stand Michel Villeneuve (from Les amateurs de Sport) because I found him to be the eternal hypocrite whiner. He would say "I don't want to bash on player X, but here's why player X is a loser". He would never find anything good to say, and always want to **** on the club.


But.

But I found someone worse. Someone that I genuinely want to punch everytime I hear him talk on the radio: Gildor Roy. The man is a blatant Bruins homer who can only find negative things to spew in his afternoon chronicle. He often say that the Habs deserve to be crushed, and never gives anything positive despite a backhand complement. I just heard him on the radio, and he actually slammed down Vanek's performance by saying that he's still a lazy bum who never achieves anything.

Francois Gagnon, first class *********, no professionalism and just plain annoying in how he discusses his matters.

Gagnon, Gaston Therrien, PJ Stock, Glenn Healy, Rejaune Tremblay, Bertrand Raymond.

I like Marc Denis, M-A Godin, Chaumont, Lavoie, Darche/Damphousse, Bergeron (can't take him seriously).

Stock, Healy and the reporters.

Does it shock anyone The Reporters are on, and only on a Sunday at 11 ?

Nobody is watching tv at that time.

I hate Bergeron and think he's an idiot and that most people here have a better understanding of the game, but the guy is side splittingly hilarious I can't hold it against him.

Same here. Used to not like him so much but now he's cool, in a weird way.

No hate for Marinaro ?

I HATE HIM.

Gaston Therrien is a no brainer and Bertrand Raymond is a ******.

Carbo/Damphouse/Darche are pretty good analyst.

Gagnon is up there for sure. I do not care for Raymond and Therrien. However, at the end of that, all roads lead back to Glenn Healy.

I guess my favorite to hate is John Garrett, but he's exclusively a Canucks color guy.

LOL...no its not.

You need to read about "Sophie's Choice"

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Sophie's_choice

And for the thread, my answer has to be Réjean Tremblay and/or Bertrand Raymond. I wish choosing one over the other was actualy a Sophie's choice!

Would be much simpler to simply name the 1 or 2 analysts that we actually enjoy.

But yeah, Gaston Therrien and Francois Gagnon are something. Really something. When they somehow have to interact with the players, it's always an epic facepalm.

Think about it. For a lot of players, the first contact they'll have with french speaking québécois is through these 'journalists'. They must think we're a bunch of morons!

Réjean Tremblay is at least fascinating in the sense that what he writes today could have been written a good 20 or 30 years ago. The guy is like a time machine. When I feel like reading some stuff from the past, I read today's Tremblay. He still probably uses a typewriter and sends his stuff by fax. Then there's an exasperated editor at the journal who has to digitalize that in some way.

Ah yes, Flynn. I guess everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I was not in a position to necessarily criticize at the time since I had never seen Galchenyuk play heading into his draft year.........but he would've taken Mathew Dumba!?!?!?! I would rather risk a player who lost a year to injury than take the beggar's version of Subban.

Réjean Tremblay tops my list. Smartass from Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean that thinks everything he says or thinks is clever but most of the time it's headscratching worthy. Honorable mention to Gaston ''mais y ress une chose'' Therrien, who talks like a ******.

It'll be way easier to list the reporters I like :

- Dubé and McGuire
- Mario Tremblay is likeable
- Mario Langlois
- EDIT : Damphousse is pretty good too. Doesn't overreact like the cheerleader that is Stéphane Langdeau.
