Is anyone watching the NBC Sports post game tonight? Scal is so rude to Abby and Forsberg. I donít think itís friendly banter.
This has been going on for 3 years. I guess they don't like each other, I guess Scal doesn't think much of Abby's basketball knowledge because he's always patronizing. It worked with Draper because the two of them just bounced insults off each other but with Abby it looks like he's picking on her. And I guess Abby made a joke about Scal's benchwarmer status a few years ago and Scal really got raged by it.
It got really bad right after Abby took over Celtics Pre and Post Game, one Pre Game Scal was saying something to Perk and Abby started to say something and Scal shushed her saying "Be quiet Abby Perk and I are talking" and when they were about to go to commercial Abby said "don't you ever tell me to shush, this is MY show" and then they went to break. I guess that must have caught the attention of NBC Sports Boston brass because after that I think Scal was told to be nice to her and so far they've been, but it's very obvious they don't like each other. I'm a little surprised he decided to belittle Forsberg too though.
In terms of his color commentary though, I don't think he's too bad. He's a bit too much of a cheerleader for the team like many ex players but he can occasionally come up with something insightful.
