I think the Sharks are flying under the radar this year. They are perennial underachievers. As such, this year, nobody was/is talking about them. Count the number of LGW posters (above) who picked the Kings.
Everyone here is picking the Kings because we hate the Sharks.
To the first part of your comment, they want the bias by their local color guy on their local channel. On a national broadcast, I think both sides would just like unbiased commentary.
With Eddie, he is just a sucky commentator. He is so bad the only way he can call a game is biased. Pierre Maguire sucks horrible as well and he has no bias at all. I don't hear any bias from the rest of the NBC crew.
Agreed. The comments about bias, including my own, were directed squarely at Eddie.
As for me, I don't mind the NBC announcing team. I really don't know why people are so anal about listening to them. Its the same attitude that people have when they turn on Fox News all the time, but when a program that they like comes on CNN, they ***** about it. There are other options thanks to Ken Kal.
As was already pointed out, I don't think as many people would have as much of a problem if they just called the game and left their personal biases out of it. Bias is fine when you are watching your local color guy, but in national broadcasts, people just want unbiased commenting.
Since you brought up Fox and CNN. It would be like if you wanted the actual news, without bias, broadcast on a single channel to everyone. Anyone with a brain in their head would be upset if you picked either CNN or Fox to cover said news, because they are both biased to the point of pretty much just being propaganda stations for their particular sides.
The Wings Were Not Playing Very Well Early In This Game Even Before All TheGoals Happened. They Had Allkinds Of Chances With Pp Early In The Game. Oh Well, Hope ForA Grea Game Monday
No dis, just a question...
Is there a smart phone app or some program that formats certain replies like this? I see people post like this now and then is various forums, and am never quite sure. It is a very bizarre and unnatural style to capitalize the first letter of every word like that.
Of course, you have to remember Franzen's pissed is throwing mouth guards.
Had Franzen not made that move though, none of us would have realized that Kanes mouth guard is magic, and when an opponent pulls it from his mouth, mystical phantom refs materialize out of thin air to protect him.
I can't believe they fire Murph but yet Keating still has a job. Maybe they will give us more Shannon Hogan now.
God, I hope not.
As if that voice of hers wasn't grating enough, like nails on a chalk board, then you add in the lisp on top of it, and hitting the mute button when she comes on is the ony thing I can do to keep me from throwing things at the speakers...lol
Education and personal development is more important than slaving 2 decades of your life away, limiting your human potential by allowing your skills, passions and incredible physical and mental energies to be used as a commodity for a multi-million dollar business.
Its funny that you say this in an attempt to talk about the importance of college, when in reality what you are describing is the whole go to college, get a degree, and become a good little 9-5 work slave for millionaires and billionaires scenario that most people in this country fall victim to...except its usually a LOT more than a mere two decades that they slave away in that job that they hate that their college degree scored them.
