So somewhere in between slurping and objective is what “Knicks fans want” is what your saying? I’m a knicks fan and I’m fine with him being objective, and playing it straight.

that's the issue, he's not objective and he doesn't play it straight. he was noticeably less annoying so far this season because the knicks have been winning but i'm sure he'll revert back to his old ways soon. i didn't watch the espn feed but from what i heard he was his old self in that game. i can only stand him when he does commentary with van gundy because he gets put in his place for being a tool and agreeing with the refs on obvious bad calls.

I don't know Breen as much as some of y'all do, but I think someone made a good point about Breen maybe trying to sometimes go out of his way to avoid being called a homer, sounding a bit pessimistic in the process...

Anyway, I didn't know he was a former referee, was it in the NBA ?

I have actually come to like Breen. I don't live in NY so I watch the Knicks on League Pass, which only uses the MSG feed half the time. Breen just is not a pure homer, which I like, because the other home announcers are just utterly annoying. They blame the referees every game unless they are blown out.

Breen and Frazier work well together.

Objectivity is not the issue as Breen is not the obvious homer as others, which is throwup.
The issue is that he has built an obvious negative image of certain Knick players. His views on NY players is not on par to how he bestows permission on Lebron, Wade, and Kobe. Rarely does he give them the benefit, For example when Melo swats and picks off a ball, he would say "it looks like an obvious foul" while the slow mo clearly shows that it was clean.
It's the benefit of the doubt.
That is why I like JVG, Troy Aikman, Collingsworth, Gruden and even Hubie Brown. He is also too ref friendly, just ask JVG, he's taken him to task for it on nationally televised games.

He sided with Chandler and not the refs. You're biased.

Again I’m fine with him being objective, by definition the term “objective” is interpretive so arguing that is pointless..

I like his chemistry with Clyde. Breen is just callng the game pretty much down the middle, wich i like.

Besides, my head itself is filled with homer calls, i dont need another dude to tell me that my knicks are getting robbed every night! :-)

Breen is like the control in a science experiment on homerism. If you have a problem with Breen's so-called "negativity" then chances are you are a delusional homer.

What people on this board don't seem to realize or accept is that having a dose of negativity is the healthiest and most logical way to be a fan.

no Breen is always emphasizing the wrong things we do and praising the **** out of the opponent

Melo gets fouled- he's gotta just play through it he's costing the team

Melo plays tough D- Carmelo is getting away with a ton of physical play he better calm down before he gets called for a foul

missed shot goes in and out- way off

like WTF just call the game
