Can you type that out for us? I don't know if I feel like pressing play and using my ears right now.

Twist makes a great point about the 11 minute mark of that interview about being a broadcaster and what to ask players to get some insight into the game.

Kerber:...Do you wanna ask players certain things...

Twist: I don't ask 'em. I just know better. I already know the answer. You take an interview from 1950 and you ask the same question "Hey, you guys lost. It was a 5-2 game, uh... Goaltending was weak. What are you guys thinking going into tomorrow's game." Well, you know, it was a tough one. We had a couple bad breaks and, uh, we just gotta keep our heads up and look forward to tomorrow and forget about today and.... It's the same interview.

Kerber: ...What insight do you go for...?

Twist: I'm looking for... and Bobby Plager always said it well, and he's a coach I reallly and truly enjoy.... It's not about how the goal was scored... What happened 2 minutes prior? What happened that allowed then to get that position to allow that to happen. So when I'm looking from a broadcaster's point of view, I'm asking questions not about the play, but what got to that play. And that can go from a guy not performing last game, a guy whose been playing pansy instead of hard on his stick, a guy that hasn't been placinv the hits when he could, a forward being a perimeter player when he should be in the corner, a guy forechecking on the offensive side when he should be pushing the puck down the defensive side, you know just positioning. And that's the thing broadcasters should be asking - especially guys that played - because the simple questions aren't going to get it done.


That isn't exact quotes, but it's close enough.


Most of the interview before that is fluff.
