    In Response to Re: Versus Coverage : Brick is not a sportscaster. He is a color commentator and analyst. "Slices" is a whole heck of a lot better than "spoons" via our homer buddy, Jack Edwards.

    You're right, Brick is the color.  In my 45 yrs playing and watching hockey, I have never heard "slices" used to describe a hockey play.  I think Jack means "saucers the puck in" when he says "spoons".

    I can't think of the other gaffes at the moment, but I was driving my wife nuts complaining about all the idiotic things Doc said repeatedly.

    And what about the Bergeron hit on Krejci?  Man, were they so pro-Tampa!  I was expecting someone to say Krejci was faking the injury?  In my opinion, that hit COULD HAVE BEEN considered a deliberate attempt to injure/headshot and he COULD HAVE BEEN thrown out of the game.  But if you listened to the announcers, it was a travesty if Bergeron got 2 mins for that!  Insane!

    I definitely sense an anti-Bruins bias and have since Versus started covering all of the games. With Emmrick, last night Horton was Seguin, Bergeron was Campbell, Tim Thomas was Darren Pang. Jesus Christ.

    As for commercials, they should just loop that Seguin/History Will Be Made one. Brings a tear to my eye.

    Re: Versus Coverage

    King - I mentioned way back in this thread that I actually like Doc. You're correct that he's one of the best. I'm just saying that last night was brutal. Everyone has an off night, but not only did he mis-identify players on 5-6 occasions, the rapport with the rest of the team was painful. Doc would try to get them to chime in and add perspective, but they never understood what he was getting at. When they did have something to say, the topic would be started a few seconds before puck drop as opposed to immediately following a play.

    How may times did Emerick have to forcibly ASK the other guys to clarify their points? Then there was some stuttering and garbling of calls. As the QB of the broadcast (along with the Producer), I felt he had a bad game. It happens. I wasn't a fan. Add in the camera madness and it really ruined it for me.

    Now correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Emerick do some NBC games recently in pairs with local color analysts? I remember him with Clement, then him with Brick. NBC camera work is usually stellar, too. NESN at home is great...that West Coast swing was a disaster.

    I would need both hands to count the amount of times the announcer called Seguin Horton last night.

    Let's see, i'd take Marv Albert, Vin Scully, Bob Miller, Dick Enberg, Dick Stockton, Tim Ryan, Bob Costas, Greg Gumbel, Al Michaels, Kenny Albert, Brent Musberger just to name a few...Jiggs McDonald is 500 times better than the bumbling, fumbling, over-exagerrated on every shot on goal Emrick....he's horrible...HORRIBLE....H---O---R---R--I--B--L--E
