Well TSN is the Sports leader... The Score and Sportsnet are equal imo. Regardless, way to go Georges! Yah, I voted for him too - and my vote came off the thread here.

Yeah it's great for him and the sport, but I just can't stand Sportsnet and I hate how TSN has gradually turned into ESPN.

Really? I think the score is brutal, although they definetly have the best sense of humor (the jokes tsn and sportsnet come up with are brutal). But their analysis especially in hockey is brutal, and the few articles for mma I have seen havent been very good either.

But yeah, this is not a legitimate award more of a fan voting contest. Although, some may appreciate the people's voice over the medias. Whatever, I am just glad *** boy Crosby didnt win.

Koolie, Ludzik, Osbourne, and hell even Strachan I find the best out of the three panels for hockey analysis. The Score runs through every score and has a constant ticker, and doesn't shorten shit while making other stuff longer. Also like some of the stories they do on visiting teams in town.

Yeah, it's fan voted but I liked St. Pierre's interview after winning.

Wow. This is excellent. Hopefully the more established guy in the sports media are classy about this and don't complain that he won.

Either way, though, I'm glad he's getting this recognition.

How do you not find Steve Kouleas the most annoying man in Canadian TV sports? He screams at everyone, all the time.
