I've been watching a fair bit of Euro 2016 and the TSN panel on that production is excellent. Luke Wileman hosts, Jason de Vos breaks down defensive highlights and Kristian Jack does the attacking highlights. All three are concise, and the two experts do a really good job of breaking down 'film'. I don't know about you guys, but that's all I want from an intermission in any sport. A host and 1-2 people that really add technical insight. No flash, no check social media segments, just detailed breakdown.

Oh my god, what is the deal with the check social media segments? If I gave a crap about what some idiot on twitter said, I would go on twitter and read all the garbage, why have it infect a TV broadcast? Especially when live sports is the main reason I pay for cable, you can do a little better than reading off tweets.

Fuck, I just watch my Protties lose to the Krauts by 1 goal in a pro-Irish pub (with a few nazis thrown in....we really razed them.... :D )
I love every move Jim Benning makes 8-)

Honestly, this was my first thought as well.

Going back to MacLean is akin to hitting the panic button.

That's a good one! Remember when Howie Meeker use to get so into it, spit would star dripping from the side of his mouth, glasses would fog up and he'd start shaking. :wow:

I always liked Dave Hodge back in the day. But he did something to piss off the powers to be and got canned.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

With the money Rogers is burning through, and the apparent loyalty amongst TSN staff, maybe Onrait and O'Toole could come back from the US and take the helm.

And it sounds like their American adventure isn't going too great.

Thanks Topper. I wish I remembered it. I'm sure I would have liked it. It's an age thing.

Hank joins Trev in the King Clancy club. Nice. I wonder how they decided on Henrik over Daniel? Maybe Dank's penciled-in to win in 2017.
