For the love of God PLEASE bring Larschied back!!!

Post by ClamRussel »

I can't believe I heard Thomlinson blurt out "Chris just got Higgy with it!" (when Higgins scored)...and all in a quasi-faux-Larschied tone. How long has Thomlinson been saving that gem up for? End this pain and give us Tommy back! The guy was an original and you can't fake it or replicate the magic he had.

Yeah I liked Tom, and frankly he made the game fun to listen to. The guy was always positive in his delivery.

He also wasn't afreaid to call players out when it was needed. He was one of the few announcers that came across as a true fan of the team and the game.

I am not a Larscheid fan but he is far better than Thomlinson who is basically a wooden Indian. The TEAM has to have among the biggest bunch of retards on the Canucks broadcast with Thomlinson, Price and Patterson. Easily three of the worst radio personalities ever in this city.

I can handle Thomlinson, but my God I can't stand Patterson's delivery. I have to change the station when he's on.

Not me, tell me his delivery isn't 100% Larscheid. Total wannabe. Fake & contrived.

I miss Tommy very much, and I am disappointed in the Canucks and the TEAM 1040 for letting him go in favour of generic vanilla in Thomlinson.

Finally back from biz trips and vacations, and I am glad to catch up on the boys and the goings on in Canuckland.

CBC has a Punjabi feed for the Saturday night games. No idea if they are homers, as I can't understand a word, but they do seem to follow the play well, based on the excitement in their voices, and the use of player names.
