Best complaints from fans confused by ‘Team Stream’ broadcast

UNC Team Stream

The CBS TV family decided to go all-out for the national championship game once again in March Madness, and that meant running the title game on three different channels. TBS hosted the unbiased national call from Jim Nantz and Bill Raftery, while TNT had a North Carolina slanted call and truTV was the Villanova homer call. These team-slanted calls were called “Team Stream” broadcasts and were intentionally biased. Apparently many fans did not get that memo.

After we received a comment on our Hubert Davis post complaining about how biased TNT was towards North Carolina, it occurred to me that many other people probably ended up watching a homer telecast without realizing it.

With that in mind, here is a compilation of some of the funniest complaints from viewers upset with the “homer” broadcast they were watching. Enjoy:

Maybe TNT/truTV needs to do better next year at informing fans they are watching a homer broadcast. You know, maybe have the announcers mention that every few minutes just to help because it’s obviously causing confusion.
