Leafs perspective time, uh oh...

Hughson is a massive Nucks homer, and he was calling a lot of the Leafs games this year, and it was boring as hell.

TSN just sucks balls, I don't want to look at penis-head and turtle-boy, yelling about Crosby during the Philly-Jersey game...

We want Bob Cole back, we don't care how senile and "Madden"-esque he's becoming, he's the voice of saturday night.

It's funny, were having basically this same discussion on the Leafs board, lol.

CBC's biggest mistake was getting rid of Cuthbert. TSN's biggest mistake is not realizing that Cuthbert and Ferraro are way better than Miller and McGuire.

Exactly, when hockey is the only source of national pride, of course there is going to be a little homerism.

Cuthbert and Ferraro... now that's a couple of guys that I could listen to call any game, any time.

Hockey is the ONLY source of pride for Canadians? I disagree completely...

Yeah, we have like six things were are proud of. We are fiercely proud of poutine, and many of our lakes are stuffed with small mouth bass. Also, William Shatner occasionally mentions Canada, we go nuts for that, too.

You still owe us for Bryan Adams and Loverboy!

Elisha Cuthbert does erase most of the pain and agony from Loverboy though

I used to fish on Balsam Lake in Ontario as a kid. Great fishing!

what i find annoying about the cbc broadcasts was in game one hughson got all up in arms over all the hard hits that the kings gave canucks players. then there was a huge hit on a king and it was a great hit. i dont mind homer announcers cheering for their teams because face it the announcers work for the teams. the announcers do get a stanley cup ring for instance and are a part of the team. i have no issue with them liking their team but calling for penalties and such for the same hit is hard to listen too. while i think hughson is a good announcer in his own right the problem is he should not be doing national canucks games.

Vancouverite here

Yes, I agree that Jim is a big Canucks Homer......but it is CBC...they sort of have to be homers to the Canadian team.

Generally I do not like Homers...i like it when a game is called for how it is..and doesnt have a home team bias twist.

Dallas is pretty good for this....Philly is the worst. The pens are pretty bad too.

Everyone's made their points, and since we've had the last of CBC simulcasts on Versus for Round 1, this won't be an issue again - at least until Round 2.
