Mid to late 20's.

I had a buddy that served the boxes. He use to bring us in to work with him, then after the 1st period we'd go up to the kitchen and he would put us in an empty box to watch the rest of the game. That night only empty spot was the visiting broadcast booth as they played Winnipeg. Just me/another buddy/Bob and Harry.

Was a crazy time back then, we would attend any concert/game/whatever for free. He'd find us an empty box and then go get a case of beer from the kitchen. We use to sit on the Leaf bench hungover Saturday morning and watch the visitors morning skate.

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

Too bad we can't get Joe Bowen in there.

LOL Those two (Hughson/Simpson) are such homers He thought Tanev saved it despite the puck clearly going in, the Kings celebrating, the goal light going on and the ref pointing it "a goal" ... what a homer

And then Simpson, after it's determined a goal, goes on to praise Luongo "BUT what a save by Luongo".

I wish Foster Hewitt was around for my generation. But I do really like Bob Cole. I don't care if he's senile and starts going off about his lawn, he's the best.

I don't think so, but you entitled to think that.

I have no problem with Joe either other than he gets off on too many stories and over uses his catch phrase

I don't think any Leaf fans like Mr. Great Save Luongo. Bob Cole for the win, or if possible bring on Chris Cuthbert. That guy knows how to call a game!

WTF are you talking about? Cole still works for HNIC. he just does the Habs games instead of Leaf games.

I'm old enough to have been around to see the Leafs win a cup; what does that have to do with anything here?

what facts are wrong?

someone (maybe you) said Bob Cole was replaced on HNIC. He wasn't. He was replaced on the Leafs broadcast and moved to the Habs broadcast. He still works for HNIC. just because he doesn't exist in your little world doesn't mean he's no longer with HNIC.

fact.

so what did I get wrong?

I read somewhere a few years back that he was taken off of doing every "prime East" game which was mostly Leaf games (by CBC bosses), and Hughson was put in that place because CBC believed (or still do believe) that Hughson was the next best thing in broadcasting..

And of course they put Hughson as the lead commentator for the Stanley Cup final games in either 2009 or 2010 over Cole.

we should definitely start a petition to get him back.

he can't see half the action anymore, but he's still good at BSing when he loses sight of it, and always, always sounds miles better than Hughson.

It may not accomplish anything, but at least we can say we tried.

Bob cole has a golden voice but he makes mistakes. Instead of saying for example "Phaneuf has it on the wall" he'd say "the leafs player has it on the wall"
