So what? You claim you love Bob Cole? The guy doesn't even get the players names right half the time. I watched Cole call Gunnarsson, Gustavsson many times and totally miss why the whistle was even blown, like he is watching something else...Have you heard Don Cherry butcher names on Coaches Corner?...its comical. Almost like he goes out of his way to mis-pronounce players names. One thing I learned in broadcasting school, is you don't butcher people's names. You practice them until you get them right, otherwise you come across as a hack who doesn't do his homework. It appears that sportscasters are not held to the same standards as newscasters but they should be, if they want to be viewed as professional and credible.
