They're the only reason I watch sportscentre :). Especially on weekends when Don Taylor and Garry Valk aren't on sportsnet.

I can't remember if it was in this video, but there is another one where Jay and Dan receive christmas gifts and Jay comments on how his gift is appropriately bigger than Dan's

Try reading the post, don't just watch the cartoon.

BTW

Root canal - anesthsia > Onrait & O'Toole

It blows my mind how anyone can find these guys funny.


It blows my mind how someone can prefer a root canal over watching TV, then expect to be taken seriously.

Thats how painfully unfunny and annoying these two losers are. I guess I am dealing with a crowd who probably finds Sean Majumder funny as well (not to mention one that sarcasm is completly beyond their grasp). Sorry but I just find nothing even remotely funny about Onrait, he is a hack plain and simple, when I watch sports news shows I don't need a hack Robin Williams wanna-be vomiting an endless stream of lame one liners.

Are you trolling? You must be trolling. Either that or you're life is WAY too serious, Mr. Grumpyface. I think you just may be the only one on the planet (or at least in Canada) that doesn't find these two entertaining.

TSN does the best job possible of minimizing eastern bias.

Every team gets a Panel, every game is shown if possible, hope they get the playoffs and hire Jim Hughson.

Everyone has their own taste in comedy. It's subjective. He has every right to not find them funny.

I compare Dan and Jay's humor to Conan O'brien's. Random, spontaneous, immature, and usually geared towards a younger audience. There's no harm in a bit of humor here and there and I think they do a fantastic job. Love it when they bring up those annoying Cialis commericals.

If you hate them so much, just don't watch them. It's that simple.

This is the issue, Onrait tries to be funny every second of the show, if it was just a comment here or there I could tolerate him, his primary job is SPORTSCASTER not comedian, a little more of the former and less of the later please.

Stop trying to hijack the thread you troll clearly you've gotten your point across about how you despise these two. Yeah, we get it, take a serious fiver and watch The Score if you don't like it.

Btw, Onrait and O'Toole are money. Best one two sports anchor punch on the air.

LOL THIS!

Oh man....... sooooo many Seinfeld references they kill me "and David Putty's team loses another" lol one time I think Dan just did the whole Elaine stella thing when she was high on drugs... "STELLLLLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"

BOBROVSKY!!!!!

That always floored me. Jay Onrait is pure gold. Hope these two keep doing this for a long time. I hardly even watch Sportsnet anymore for highlights.

Sportsnet use to be all I watched for Don Taylor... oh ya and Hazel Mae :frantic: she's peeerrrrrtttyyyyyy lol but ya honestly as the years have gone on.... Dan and Jay have just won me over, only reason I watch S-net is I'll try to catch the Canucks panel with either John Garett or normally Gary Vaulk, that's all S-net is good for these days

I think one of my favorite things that they do which is pretty simple actually and they do it almost every show but... that's what I find funny (this is clearly how stupid I am) is they'll be like 2-5 min into the hour of highlights and Jay's always like "ya know Dan...... I think this is our best show ever!" and Dan always says something along the lines of "I think your right Jay, this is definatly our best show ever!"

It's very stupid no doubt but when you hear it every single night it starts to crack ya up.

I'll say one other quick story..... I can't find this one on Youtube sadly :( but one of my top 2-3 favorite Jay and Dan moments was this one night Jay says "oh hey Dan btw Duthie got a tweet about us from "joe" who says" (and then the tweet comes up on the screen) and it says "Hey Duthie just wondering when Jay and Dan are going to make it on to the quiz?"

So Jay starts to laugh and says "Oh Joe... Duthie and us we go wayyyyyyy back, friends for years! I'm sure as soon as he see's this tweet he'll be asking us to come on to the quiz" (meanwhile Dan had been acting excited as well, and was fixing his hair making sure he looked his best to go on the quiz) as Jay finished talking Dan says "whoa whoa Jay wait a minute..... uhhhhh Duthie already tweeted back...." (the tweet comes up on to the screen and Dan reads it out loud"

Duthie had tweeted back "um Joe... I have no idea who these two people are" Lol the look on Jay and Dan's faces were increadible, I cried I laughed so hard.

It seems they are getting more riled up than me, for some reason they take it as a personal insult that I don't like them, maybe they need to accept that I don't find recycled Chris Berman Schtick amusing and move on themselves. B)

Since my initial post, the only posts I have made are responses to attacks on me, don't attack me and I won't fight back.

lol at the posters going crazy over the fact that someone doesn't like these guys.

I also despise these guys. I don't find them funny (maybe sometimes I find them moderately funny). They come across as trying too hard to me. I actually go out of my way to not watch them when they are on, because they annoy me.

So because earlier in the game Schaefer hit someone from behind, it was ok for Jones to do the same to Bergeron?
Does that mean that because earlier in the year, Moore blindsided and elbowed Naslund, so it was ok for Bertuzzi to blindside him and punch him?

incase it hasn't sunk in yet. main reason people like them is because they're a step from the norm "blablablabla" scripted sports reporting. their comedic touch makes the show stand out, and we all know YOU don't like them, but based on what we have seen so far in this thread, you are in the MINORITY with your opinion.

So I don't have the right to that opinion? It is also likley others who don't like them don't feel like being attacked for expressing a different opinion (par for the course from the kiddies on this board) Have I done any namecalling or criticized anyone for liking them? Please oh great one, tell me what is funny about them? Anyone can clearly see he is just rehashing Chris Berman who was doing this schtick (and was much better at it) 15 years ago.

While your at it you could also please explain why you and others are so insulted because I don't like Onrait or find him funny (I couldn't care less about O'toole he is irrelevant).

I don't mind the two of them. They're alright, though I sometimes get the feeling they're trying a little too hard.

Does anyone apart from me get the feeling that Jay Onrait is on drugs most of the time?
