Felger & Massarotti continued the day discussing the Boston Bruins 4-2 win over the Canadiens in Montreal last night. Montreal currently leads the series 2-1.

The guys went on to discuss Jack Edwards and Andy Brickley of NESN and some of their recent calls. Also, the guys brought up Tommy Heinsohn. Do fans enjoy over the top hometown bias of some of these announcers?

Aren’t the hometown announcers supposed be “homers”?

    Brickley apologized for not seeing the ref’s penalty call at the start of the 3rd.

  2. Joan Clifford says:

    No, hometown announcers are not supposed to be “homers”. Only when their team does something amazing is an expression of over-the-top enthusiasm called for and natural.

    Heinsohn is not a homer. He is very critical of the officiating, and always has been. However, he can be quite critical of the Celtics also. Herein lies the justification: he played and coached the game.

    Edwards is a bombastic and narcissistic idiot. His postgame speeches are worthy of Bill O’Reilly, and that’s as bad as it gets. Mr. Edwards should try playing the game before he screams at guys playing the roughest of the four major sports. That would really be “a scream”.
