To be fair, his tune changed when it became clear that Kronwall was hurt. However, as somebody who lives in Denver I can tell you that he's nearly unbearable to listen to on an even semi-regular basis. He's basically a less entertaining, less intelligent version of Jack Edwards.
To be fair, HF is HF, and the average Avalanche fans are (aside from "Red Wings suck" chants) not that bad. I've been to many games at the Pepsi Center, and I've never been accosted or messed with. Coincidentally, the Wings have also won every single game I've gone to. I wish I'd gone last night.
Mike Haynes has toned it down a bit but is still a jack wagon. He was far worse when he was announcing on the radio. One time I heard him call Darren McCarty a ****** bag on the air. His comments from last night's game have made national news & I'm sure he's catching crap for it. http://www.bing.com/...cer&form=OSDSRC
