Just because CBC ranks someone #1 doesn't mean they're any good. Look at Harry Neale. Poor Toronto had to put up with his dead-flat-wrong misdescriptions of what was actually going on on the ice for years. The CBC's incredibly biased toward the Leafs, but that's not always a favour to their fans.

Secondly, while I have nothing against Cole and only think he's well past his prime, used to be great, the fact is that he doesn't know the habs at all, nor really does Millen. They haven't followed the team and don't know it, just as the fan base doesn't know them or have any reason to respect their work, certainly not based on the Boston series.

What really bugs me as a habs fan is that CBC hasn't even got a single announcer who actually follows the habs. Ottawa's treatment is just as bad.

On tsn, one of the announcers asked why the Caps' fans boo Briere and Pierre said it was because Briere pushed Ovechkin into the boards last year. He got his players mixed up and didn't even correct himself.

Also, Garry Galley is an idiot. So is P.J. Stock. I'd rather have Cassie Campbell, cause if they show her, you can block her voice out and focus on something else. haha

Basically, Montreal on any English channel is garbage. haha

Huh? Bob Cole is a self-procliamed Habs fan.



I think he's done a pretty good job so far. His descriptions aren't always accurate (but he's old, give him a break) - but I love his voice and enthusiasm. Jim Hughson is too boring.

I'm not asking the CBC to hire a habs fan, I'm asking them to assign a professional broadcast team to cover the team full time, like they do with the Leafs, Flames, Oilers and Canucks. Is that so hard to understand?

edit, let me just add

They're making noises in that direction, although no official promise of all games nor announcement of a full broadcast team. When they actually do it I'll stop *****ing at them, but in the meantime they've fully earned my disdain.

The problem with Cole is he will confuse you.
I don't know french however I prefer watching rds, the picture quality is better than cbc also because its a digital feed my surround sound captures the atmosphere of the crowd a lot better...

Awesome. That way, you'll only miss two or three goals throughout the course of the series.

The sound of the crowd is actually better on CBC.

RDS turns down the crowd volume for some stupid reason.

I don't mind cole but I wish they'd get rid of Millen.

It's too bad CBC didn't keep Cuthburt.

I love Coles fade outs to commercials. Always heartfelt.

He got his players mixed up? Are you saying this because Ovechkin is the one that hit Briere, and what Briere actually did was SPEAR Ovechkin rather than hit him into the boards? That's a small detail. Pierre has the reason essentially right and good on him. He takes wayyyy too much heat. He's a great commentator.

despite how many mistakes he makes, his goal calling is timeless especially at playoff time.

If we win the cup, the only person I want calling it is BOB COLE. He knows how to make classic moments...classic.

For the regular games, Hughson is who I rather listen to , but for great games, its gotta be Bob.

As for Pierre and Yvon, they're great for regular games, but they dont have the umph for the great games.

If bob cole calls A. Kostitsyn T. Kostopolous one more time Im going to snap.

And he is a terrible play by play guy, yes in 93 he was great but that was 15 years ago now he is just lost all the time I would take anyone and I mean ANYONE before him.

He is terrible and the more games he does the less I think he is a "self proclaimed habs fan"
