Sorry lads, was a little intoxicated when I posted this lol. I should have clarified that I knew it was Bob on saturday and that I wanted him back full term. I did realize that he was off on many aspects of the game but his voice is awesome and suits hockey perfectly. I think a duo of him and Joe would be amazing.

Even though he makes mistake, I will always love Bob Cole. We all had a good laugh when he said "Jim Van Reimsdyke" . Poor James will now forever be "Jim" Van Reimsdyke in my book.

Too many cooks in the kitchen, got to be one or the other. Would love to have Bowen call the CBC games but he's not corporate enough for CBC.

As much as I love Bob and his voice because it brings me back to the old days... last game was a reminder why CBC doesn't have him doing primetime that often anymore.

He misses things, butchers names, often lags behind the play, and I find he can't keep up.

He was the best in the biz for a long time, age is finally catching up to him.

I don't mind him every once and a while but if he was our guy every game I'd probably lose it.

Joe, as in Bowen?

They are both Play by Play guys, neither does the colour commentary.

I know but it was still amusing. Maybe because there was 50 other hiccups leading up to that one which is why I found it amusing.

Still luv ya, Bobby!

Love Bob Cole, hate all the "he misses calls" compaints by people, so I actually paid attention to how many Hughson makes, and there's PLENTY, Hughson actually misses calling a GOAL more often in a game than Cole has in his entire career, "AND IT'S IN THE NET" (well after the fact), bet you read that in Hughson's voice and it sounds pretty darn familiar don't it?

I didn't hear any mistakes. I guess I don't listen very closely.

Agree with this 100%, this isn't raido, I don't need a perfect description of what's happening every minute.

It'll be a sad day in my books when he stops calliing games. Would love to see Joe Bowen take over on HNIC eventually but he's away to much of a homer.

I have been listening to Bob Cole since he started on radio, broadcasting games in 1969. I thought he was the best then and I haven't changed my mind after all these years. I said on Saturday night, in another site, that Bob Cole ,despite being in his eightieth year, is still the second best voice on National broadcasts. I will give Chris Cuthbert a slight nod above him but I love Cole on Leafs broadcasts. You nit pickers must have broadcasting aspirations so I understand why you do that. I wonder how many here know that Cole represented Newfoundland as a curling skip in the Canadian curling championships on two different occasions..Just thought I would throw that in lol. Brad Gushue in his own mind lol

Absolutely, I can deal with mistakes as well, his voice just gets my blood going. It's even better when your at a bar that actually has the volume and you hear him say "And we got a scrap" EVERYONE stops what they're doing immediately.

If anyone has the time today can they look up and post the CBC email addy so we can let the CBC know we want Cole back on Leafs HNIC and send Hughson and Simpson who suck large packing back to Vancouver thanks in advance.
Cole wasn't replaced by NHIC. He does the Habs games. believe it or not there is more to HNIC than the Leafs games.

If anyone thinks Cole makes too many mistakes, be thankful that he isn't just blatantly blind due to homerism.

Bob Cole should call every single Leaf game on CBC while we are still blessed to have him around.

We have been robbed as Leaf fans over the last few years, it's as simple as that.

CBC's real mistake was letting go of Chris Cuthbert. He should have been Bob's replacement for Leaf games.

Watch Saturday's game in 6 objectively, it's hilarious how bad he is at actually calling.
the one thing he DOESN'T do is mispronounce names. He goes to great effort to make sure he does it correctly.

just because it is different than everyone else doesn't mean it's wrong.

but he does make a lot of mistakes and as much as I loved listening to Bob for years, the Habs games, where not many people will hear, is the better place for him.

He's at TSN.

I'm not a fan of Cole really, he just seems way behind the game for me to enjoy his voice. Hughson is okay, but the real stars are at TSN.
