  1. Holy Jesus… I just watched the Brassard-Cook “fight” on hockeyfights.com and couldn’t help but notice the homerism in whatever guy was calling it for Pittsburgh. The blatant dirty hit by Cook, the ultimate worm, on Tutin? The idiot calling it for Pitt has the audacity to say that it’s Tutin’s fault? Is there any way to suspend those who call the games for… I don’t know… being a complete dickwad???

  2. Nate,
    The Pittsburgh Penguins have essentially become unwatchable for me due to their broadcast crew. They are so outrageously over-the-top in their defense of the Penguins that they fail to EVER criticize the team and in fact omit many parts of the game simply because it would put the team in a negative light. And let’s not forget their infamous withholding of a replay that showed a goal against the Penguins should have counted until AFTER the referees and video review in Toronto had ruled that the goal would not count. I realize that every broadcast crew is slanted towards the home team but the Penguins crew takes it to a level that is unacceptable and intolerable for me. When I watch the Penguins I either watch the opposing feed or the national feed.


  3. Doug – I couldn’t agree with you more on every point. I’ve been aware of their distinct brand of homersim for a while now, which is why I don’t watch many Penguins games, and never one on their feed. This particular instance just ticked me off too much, probably because it involved Matt Cooke, whom I positively despise. I can’t beleive they still let these guys (or THAT guy) call the games. It baffles me beyond words.
