Hey! A Post!

BURNING QUESTION: Why does TSN hire woman sportscasters?

When Jennifer Hedger came on board, I felt....well...weird about it. That's really the only way I can describe it. It's like this. I watch most sports, or at least the highlights of most sports. The sports I watch are played by men, watched by men, everything about these sports involves men. They are made for men. The typical feeling on women involving themselves with men's sports is that they just shouldn't be there. Stay out of a man's way when it comes to sports, they say. That stereotype is propagated over and over through various commercials and other advertisements like that.

Sure there's the odd woman who likes football or something. That's great. Some girls like sports, but not many. So when you're broadcasting to a mass audience that consists of 95% men, why have the person who is doing the broadcasting project a massive negative image on the sport? If almost everyone believes women don't know anything about sports, well guess what...a SPORTS program isn't going to be well-received if it's delivered by a fucking WOMAN. It's like if you and all your friends are Nazis all sitting around at home, and a Jew comes to the door trying to sell you tanks at a discount price. He knows full well you are a Nazi, and he goes on explaining all the new features of the the tanks. The tanks really ARE awesome. Well, since you really need the tanks, you'll buy them. But you're thinking: "Damn, that was weird. That Jew is lucky I already know my shit about tanks or I'd be pissed. I'd feel way better if it was another Nazi selling me those tanks."

The broadcaster might know something about sports, but that really doesn't matter. She's the embodiment of anti-sports. You're just sacrificing the quality and reputation of your programming if you put her on the air.

Jennifer Hedger is alright, but she's a woman. I've already got it in my head that she's only there because TSN is trying to diversify their station, so I'm not buying her act. She's a good actor though. The thing that set me off here is this new woman they brought in. She is atrocious...the worst sportscaster I've seen yet. Seriously, what are they trying to do over there?

They're just trying to hire people that are nice to look at. However, they tend to fail miserably at that, and an HD closeup of anyone's face will expose many flaws that no one wants to see.

You can tell when sportscasters know what they're talking about when they lose their place in their notes or on the teleprompter. If they can recover at all, they generally know their stuff because they just looked at the screen and described what they saw. It frustrates me when I can clearly tell the person has no clue what the fuck is going on. The worst is Martine Gaillard. She's worked on sports channels as long as I've been watching them and she hasn't learned a damn thing.

Anyways, they clearly need to get people who are somewhat funny in their delivery of lines. Even if the host isn't inherently funny, they should just hire a Jew or two to add a couple lines and punch up the script a bit. Or they can just go the Score route and get two guys who know and like sports, and are at least a little funny, and just let them improvise quite a bit.

Why doesn't James Duthie do anything anymore?

James Duthie heads some hockey roundtable bullshit. It involves Bob Mackenzie, and maybe Darren Pang. Shit, Pierre Maguire might be in there too. Try watching that...

I conquer. That new chick is terrible. Her voice is too soft and quiet, you can't here a damn word she says. They need Duthie and Jay Onreit to do all Sports Centres. Those two were awesome together.
