:laugh2: Mike's a pretty good play by play guy. Tommy's been apart of the organization for 50 years now so of course he's going to be a huge homer.

Hes doing his job if opposing teams fans hate him, so u hating him means hes doing a decent job. Does he gets biased too a huge extreme at times? Sure...HOWEVER, You win titles as a player, coach and see the same team win titles as an anouncer u'd be biased also. He was a player and key when they won there first title, Coached title runs in the 70's, anounced during the 80 too now...He was a part of all 3 runs the celtics have had....HEINSOHN=GOD

There were worse ones that I head last year. From memory it was the Spurs and Pacers guys which were really bad, although I might've just been more annoyed about it because I actually like those teams and really wish they'd had good ones.

That doesn't really give him an excuse.

But I understand why he favours them so much.

Just because he's been apart of the organization for the last 50 or so years means he can act like the Celtics are above everything else?

No, it really doesn't matter what opposing fans think because he is biased, so obviously they will all hate him. Heinson makes the games more fun to watch, which is all you can ask for from a commentator. I would take Tommy and Mike over any other announcers. I'd rather have them be biased and fun then boring and unbiased.

Hes not a national anouncer....so yes it is ok. I personally like biased boston anouncers....And yes, A guy that was apart of a team for 60 yrs whatever, has 17 titles ect is allowed too be a homer.

I said I understand why he favours them. But I never said that was a valid excuse to be biased.

From my understanding atleast, 1 aspect basketball commentators are supposed to give basketball knowledge to viewers. Tommy only reduces basketball IQ if you aren't feeding in his ****.

Lol he's commentating on the local comcast sports network, not national television, so why shouldn't he act like the Cs are above everything else? This is a ridiculous topic, every home town announcer is biased. Although I admit Tommy's probably one of the most biased, what the big deal?

he's horrible. thats cool that he's been part of all 17 Celtics championships but let him do something else! being a commentator is not his thing but you know, we cant really complain if the Celtics fans like him because it is their feed.

but it doesnt change the fact that that Heinsohn guy is a horrible commentator.

As soon as the oposing team catches up, the boston celtics arent careing for a preseason win. :laugh2:

Hes a Homer just like Red Auerbach was a homer...Tommy has been apart of 17 titles with this team dating back too 1956. Hes helped them win titles as a hall of famer player, Head coach, and had seen them win several times anouncing. Hes OBVIOUSLY going too be biased.

Combine that with the fact hes old, health isnt great, and his wife passed away...he prob doesn't give a ****

Tommy represents a large demographic of cranky old irish guys that make up a lot of the north east.. Biased yes. But he's a legend.

Mike Gormon on the other hand is a class act and should not be lumped into this bashing thread. Truly an excellent commentator.

Gorman is an excellent play by play guy, and I'll defend that point.

Tommy's a complete and utter homer. No one can deny it. Most Celtic fans respect him for how long he's been with the franchise, though.

1. Tommy Heinsohn
2. Stacey King

I muted these 2 goofs last night. I've never heard so much complaining during a basketball game in my life. For the record, Boston wont make it out of the first round of the playoffs this year. The schedule is too demanding for the elderly Celtics. I can't wait to hear what those 2 goofs have to say when that time comes.

after watching a lot of league pass the couple days I will say this... a lot of the local guys SUCK. I dont know how you put up with how biased some of them are.

I watched a game yesterday where like three times the announcers were irrate with the refs for a bad call and then they watched the replay and were like, "oh, they were actually right." I hate listening to announcers with homer goggles on...its so unprofessional. I want to here an unbiased call of the game to balance my own irrational viewing.

12-27-2011, 11:54 AM
After watching those Tommy videos that is exactly what I cant stand... as an announcer you arent suppose to be homer fan boy. Hell, that Pierce one may not have even been a foul... facepalm to announcers like that.

12-27-2011, 12:05 PM
As a Celtics fan I was immediately excited to post about Tommy Heinsohn being the biggest homer in history. The guy is absolutely entertaining and I look forward to every game he announces.

He screams at the refs and just goes berserk over bad calls. He spends the majority of the game complaining about the refs. The man is a legend in Boston and I will be extremely disappointed day day he retires. No one else can make a 2006 17 win season as entertaining Tommy.

Keep on the keep on Tommy

Oh absolutely if I had to sit threw a Tommy game not as a celtic fan I would get heated pretty quickly

Like Gus Johnson, you cant take him seriously, pure entertainment.


In 2006 I'm not tuning in for a Celtics win.... I wanted to see the pieces develop and the off chance Tommy goes berserk again

I also hear drinking with him on his nights off watching the Celtics play (uncensored) is just a whole new level.

Exactly. He's entertaining. He makes Celtics losses better when he explodes next to Gorman. It's comical.
