There is NOTHING wrong being a homer if you're announcing for the home team.

When Tommy "BURP" Heinsohn was on National TV , I hope I was the final straw that pulled that F^cker off the TV.

He was not only the worst color commentator , but IMO probably DRUNK.

I wrote letters to the network , and finally he was put on backup games.

" think of a guy that wore out his welcome at a party talking about how he did this or that in all of his glory with 6 beers under his belt , now you know how the guy announced"

Do I care if Boston has him .....

At least to me.

See this is someone who gets it. People act like Tommy is a ref and what he says determines how the calls are made.

I'd rather hear someone who's honest than someone who's trying to be unbiased. Afterall, we are talking about a local broadcaster who's been a player and coach for the team, not someone from ESPN or TNT that just has a commentating gig for the moment between coaching jobs.

Yes, but there are limits to the number and severity of ridiculously homerish claims you can make without making an ass of yourself. Tommy consistently shatters those limits. I had never really heard him call a game until a couple of days ago, to be honest. But, like I said, he is a basketball legend as both a player and coach, and he is a fat, senile old man, so he can be forgiven for going over the top with his homerism. You have to admit that it get's ridiculous and annoying.

It's not annoying at all to me, but of course I'm just as biased about Tommy as he is about the C's.

I have WGN so I catch a lot of Bulls games when the Celtics aren't on, and there was a game about a week ago where I heard the commentators say that Chicago was not only the best sports town but also the best city in America.

Now, I personally disagree with both of those points, but I didn't post in the game thread (or start new threads) yelling "OMGZORS, HOMERZZZZZZZ!!!!111!!!!"

I laughed and continued watching the game.

Yeah, but those Chicago guys looked like asses, didn't they? Bostonians do, too. They just embarass themselves, with Tommy being the epitome of this trend.

And can I pleeease get some quotes from what Tommy said last night? Or I could just look it up myself...

That's the point, of course they're going to look like asses to fans of other teams. Plus, if those Chicago guys had been known to be such homers and complain about ever call I don't think I would have been surprised at all by the comment, let alone post about it like it was outrageous that local broadcasters are homers.

And I actually enjoyed hearing the Chicago guys rather than the typical stiff ESPN and TNT commentators that have no personality or passion at all. But that's just me, I'm sure there's people who enjoy Reggie and Jon Barry making hack jokes and adding very little to the game.

he's really a homer. but he's better now actually. i want Celtics-Spurs. then Spurs wins like they did to Phoenix and Utah(flops). and Bowen does his thing.. ooooh weee. Tommy would lose it. it would be fun. Tommy vs. the spurs.

Heinsohn is a local broadcaster, and he gives the local yokels what they want to hear. After ten or eleven beers I'm screamin' at the TV just like he is. He's ridiculously biased, but that's why he's funny. I can understad why people don't like him, but I think he's awesome.
