Longtime NESN broadcaster Jack Edwards found himself in the spotlight once again during Tuesday's Boston Bruins game against the Florida Panthers, but not for positive reasons.

Edwards faced accusations of being "drunk out of his mind" on air, sparking a flurry of comments and questions on social media platforms, particularly Twitter.

Bruins gotta stop letting Jack Edwards get drunk during the game

Despite addressing his medical condition, which has resulted in a sudden slurred speech that differs from his usual energetic style, Edwards has continued to fulfill his broadcasting duties. However, his altered speech pattern has led to criticism and speculation, with some fans suggesting he may be intoxicated on air.

Despite ongoing health evaluations and growing discontent from fans regarding his performance, Edwards remains committed to his role and has no plans for early retirement. He compares his speech issues to an in-season injury that he aims to recover from.

However, some fans insist that he should address potential alcohol abuse. It's likely that such comments will persist until the conclusion of the 2023-24 season.

Unless NESN takes direct action, Edwards intends to continue broadcasting, despite calls from some quarters for his retirement before the season ends.
