RDS is a huge joke

I'm watching the Sens-Pens game and the color commentator has been calling a certain former Rocket Richard winner "Jordan Cheechoo" the whole game. The play by play guy has not corrected him at any point

To his defense, the play-by-play guy is mainly a football guy. And the color commentator is Denis Gauthier...

Edit : Wait, Are they the ones or are there other dudes?

He has like 2 points this year and makes over $3 million a year, he doesn't deserve to have his name said properly.

Isn't Radio-Canada much better? Also, isn't TQS one of the worst channels (V is still as bad, wtf is wipeout with those commentors saying dumb things, not to mention LE MUR, )

At least Rodney is a relatively unknown player...we're talking about an NHL vet in his 7th season with a Rocket Richard under his belt. He's scored 20+ on 4 occasions, including seasons of 28, 37 and 56 goals.

It made me cringe hearing the guy say Jordan Cheechoo constantly and not even having anybody correct him.

i think people need to find a life if all they can do is criticize a tv network for not pronouncing the name of a player right and starting a thread on a message board...

Jordan tootoo
Jonathan Cheechoo

easy mistake when it concerns teams that half the people watching RDS don't give a crap about anyway...

You don't see TSN making these kinds of mistakes. It speaks to a lack of professionalism. Just about any hockey fan that isn't a bandwagoner knows who Jonathan Cheechoo is. It's not that hard to get right. Some mistakes you can forgive, but I know I wouldn't be happy if they called me by the wrong name for a whole ******* game. That's a simple thing to get right and one that should be done out of respect.

And i'm sure Jordan Cheechoo :-) and is entire family are diehard RDS watchers....

give it rest, yeas it's a mistakes, yeah it's sad that it happens on multiples occasion in a game, believe that someone at RDS will mention it tho the play by play and color commentator of that game, i'm just saying that it is a waste of a thread for a minor and idiotic issues...

But if people don't have anything better to do then starting such threads, i don't have anything better to do then to answer on the subject...

You mean the Denis Gauthier who was supposed to improve the Canadiens' blue line this year?

It sounded like Alain, but how the **** does he not know Jonathan Cheechoo? Or Bob Hartley for that matter? Maybe there's a reason Hartley doesn't have a coaching job anymore.

Haha...this is so true...

No players productions has literally fallen off the table faster in the last four years...

05-06 56-37-93

06-07 37-32-69

07-08 23-14-37

08-09 12-17-29

(2 points this year)

And he's been between 66-82 games all 4 seasons...oh, and he's 29...so much for the "prime" of his career.

RDS is not a joke, certain commentators (a la Brunet) are jokes!

Just like the CBC, Don Cherry, Mike Milbury, Al Strachan, Harry Neale and Bob Cole are all idiots!

On the other hand I love PJ, Carbo, McLean, Hrudey and Freidman are all stars in my book!

The title of the video of the Flames-Hawks game is : Blackhawks 1 - Flames 7 on the RDS site.

For half a period, Crête said Cheechoo everytime #39 touched the puck. When Cheechoo finally touched the puck, Crête stopped talking for a minute, probably looking at his roster sheet to see who the hell was he calling Cheechoo for 10 mins.
