Thumbs up Euro 2012 on TSN

Were getting close to the Euros! June 8th is the day it all kicks off.

Question: When do TSN plan on releasing the TV schedule for Euro 2012?

Probably within the next month. Almost all of the games will air on TSN. The only ones that will probably air on TSN2 is Ireland vs. Croatia on June 10 when TSN has the Canadian Grand Prix.

Games will run simultaneously on TSN and TSN2 from June 16-19. They probably won't decide which will air where until days before, so the best game can air on TSN.

Any word on the commentators they'll use?

If they used ESPN commentators I'd be happy. Does anyone know if they'll pick up Martin Tyler like they did for the WC in 2010?

since the games are on tsn then yes they will use the European ESPN announcers as always.

We don't know that. TSN used the international feed in 2008, instead of ESPN.

I think ESPN are using Ian Darke and Adrian Healy. Not sure about co-commentators, but probably Macca and Robbie Mustoe. It sounds like they will be in Bristol calling the games off a monitor.

Sure hope the screecher (Darke) and the mush-mouthed moron (McManamam) aren't involved! They manage to ruin all the epl games they do for me.

McManaman tends to downplay the severity of some of the fouls with his 'aach, that was just a little nudge, nothing malicious about it' etc. I also find his pro Liverpool, pro Man Citeh position comes through a bit too loud and clear.

However, he is nowhere near as blatent as Ray Hudson in which team he is rooting for.

Oh yeah for sure Hudson is the worst. I have to turn off the sound when he's commentating. McMan is a scouser of course AFAIK.

ESPN can't afford to send them over? Hmm.

Hudson is fun. I'd love to hear him commentating for an England match. It would be the opposite of Barcelona. He'd be rubbishing them from the kick off until the final whistle.

Well two of the four live in Britain, so I'm not sure what the reason is. Macca is doing some studio work too, so it may have something to do with that.

If you think Macca is biased, try to find Sky's commentary of the Derby. Niall Quinn was worse. I prefer Macca in a studio role, but I've grown to like him more.

Yes, Macca is a scouser. I do find him easier to understand than Carragher...now there is a guy who is very hard to understand what he is talking about.
