Why is CBC dumping on the Leafs--they've been such a great franchise over the last decade!

Blue, Blue whine, stay close to me.
Don't let me be alone;
It's tearing apart
My blue, blue heart.

I don't mute it but don't really listen to it either. It's just background noise.

HNIC is a total gongshow. Friedman is the only analyst worth listening to. The rest of the panel is brutal, Maclean can be insufferable, Cherry is Cherry. CBC really needs some new faces.

Still not seeing much a bias out of Hughson and Simpson. I don't mind their calls.

Healey is just absurd though. I can't believe they let that go on.

Ive wanted to email a formal complaint to CBC about these three idiots since they were shipped here from Vancouver.


Cant stand them. HNIC has gone from my favorite to least favorite in a span of five years.


I even enjoy the streams from the other teams moreso than these clowns.


Just horrendous broadcasting.

Hughson takes some subtle digs at the leafs...which frankly I can deal with. It's not as if the Leafs have earned respect around the league yet.

But yea Healy is over the top and ridiculous. I don't understand how the CBC isn't incredibly embarrassed by him.

No I disagree. They hate all teams equally. During the sens/habs game they were hating on those teams. I think leafs fans are far too sensitive and need to deal with it.

Nope its a gongshow of leafs hate.


When the Leafs are winning, you can actually hear the tone of Hughson and Simpson drop, like they are sad.


When they are losing, they just completely focus on the opposing team, Hughson empahsizes pronounciation "Chhhara" and has a little stiffy in his pantaloones.


When we play a team that actually has superstars (Crosby, Datsyuk, Ovechkin) they just drool over them all game. Even if the Leafs are shutting them down.

Well...even Tyler Myers was 10x better than Chara at the age of 18. Hamilton is a gentle giant. He's never going to intimidate anybody.

I guess we can all say Morgan Rielly is much better than Lidstrom because nobody knew he would be that good when he was picked.

Also...Healy is just a D-bag. He even took potshots at Kessel during the Ottawa-Montreal game today.

Hope TSN takes over Saturday nights from 2014 when their contract ends. They're a much better broadcasting crew anyways.
I noticed that and it was totaly irrelevant. He was saying that Plekanec was worth more than Kessel because he plays all three zones. He was comparing a winger and a Centerman.

It is obviously a conspiracy to force all of us Leafs' fans to learn Punjabi.

Maybe they are getting their last shots in at the team that is going to go hard after the broadcast rights of HNiC while they still can.

Rogers and Bell versus CBC in a bidding war for hockey? The Conservatives and giving more money to the CBC? Ya think?

Yesterday Healy was doing the Sens/Habs game. He said something along the lines of, "Leafs have Kessel, sure, but look at Plekanec here. He plays in all three zones. He's a three zone player. Sure Kessel scores a bunch of goals, but..." And he goes on about defensive hockey and stuff lol. That's like saying, "Sure Brett Hull scores a bunch of goals, but look at Darren McCarthy here, look at his checking." Not to mention Kessel was even in the game.

Healy is just a bitter, decrepid ex-employee who was given the pink slip by the Leafs (yellow to be exact). If you listen to him on The Fan he is actually pretty insightful when he isn't talking about the Leafs.

he interviewed for the GM job when JFJ was hired, going to guess with that ego he is harbouring a grudge still

They way things are going the broadcast will probably all end up PPV anyway, so CBC will be out of the equation.

I'll pay to avoid that "background noise" and not complain.

Healy did take a unnecessary, potshot at Kessel while praising Plekanic. That whole game was an illustration of Healys obsessive negativity towards the Leafs. Everything Ottawa and Montreal was sunshine and superlatives, you would swear both are far and away in better shape than Toronto.
I think Hughson is one of the best, Simpson on the other hand is as insignificant as any color guy I've ever heard, there is no there there. Can't remember him ever saying anything insightful or witty. Seems to really concentrate on his dimples and haircut though.

For some reason i can handle Healy even though he obviously hates the Leafs,but Hughson and Simpson ....my god ...the last game against the Bruins i just couldnt believe the negativity and attitude they had. Please you ****ing homers go back to Vancouver! I mean it was just the worst ive heard out of there mouths since they started comentating the Leafs games. At least you have to hear Healy once in a while and for some reason im just used to Healy he doesnt bother me .
