Pierre McGuire! The man is prett smart when he's not throwing back some speed before coming on air. When he starts screaming I just shake my head in pity.

I'm just going to hazard a guess here......and say the consensus choice will be none other than Greg Millen.

I personally don't mind him, but everybody else seems to loathe him.

I like him to a extent to. When he's not screaming and yelling he gets his point across and he usually knows what he's talking about but when he does start screaming and yelling he just sounds like a 3 year old at the toy store with Mommy who didn't get him his favorite toy. I understand I'm not in the majority with that opinion (atleast around Toronto) but that's just the way I feel.

Greg Millen. Heh, I'm just not a fan. He seems pretty whiny and seems to always question a referee's decision on calls.

These guys should be getting the majority of votes from Canadian posters.


(The guy on the left of course. Though I'm not a big Miller fan either.)

Me too. Millen's a moron and the Avs' announcers (don't have a clue who they are) are almost unbearable. They sound as though they're in a constant state of: fill in the blanks here but it begins with an 'o' and ends with an 'm'.

The ones on the radio are funny. the one on FSN i think the one that says THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU after a importnat goal is cool.


I say the teams of Thorne and Clement and Millen are bad

That guy who calls the Phoenix games. No clue what his name is, but I swear they just picked him off the side of the road. He is absolutely, horrendous as he overreacts on every play.

That guy is absolutely hilarious! I'd love to hear more of him. Even when the 'Nucks lose, he's got a really amusing way of saying so.

Don Taylor = Mr. Personality
