I'm confused, why is the scoreboard on the VAN-EDM goal showing all the eastern games scores from the first period?

Is there anything more embarrassing to Canada than HNIC?

Their shows SUCK. (Despite Canada's wealth of entertainment talent)
Their "national" broadcast is dedicated to ONE team (Canadian) and an American one (the biggest rivals of the most storied Canadian, or otherwise, franchise) and their poster old man spews the most un-Canadian views while not even slightly hiding his bias.

I know this is nothing new, but what is depicted by what Alexdaman posted is another new low. And they were playing the team from the nation's CAPITAL!!!

As much as I love our country and am so glad it's not the states (they have far bigger issues no matter whose side you're on), there is so much wrong with some of its most prominent elements. Don't get me started on pasta!

Their shows are professional, very well produced and often feature Canadian artists. You're just mad because Cherry is a Leafs and Bruins fan. Get over it, HNIC is amazing.

CBC is simply awful, the only thing that is decent is their news coverage but even that could be much better. Every single show they produce are way too politically-correct and as boring as watching paint dry. How the hell do they keep coming up with such crap, who writes these shows? How the hell does anyone finds Canadian air farce or Rick Mercer funny?

Stromboulopoulos is O.K at best. They will never admit it but CBC hates everyone and anything that comes from Quebec and simply ignores every province that isn't Ontario or the northern territories/Yukon.

I hope what just happened on HNIC isn't just forgotten and someone does something about it, it ain't Kadri's fault he's great but CBC can't do BS like that and just hope it passes.

The Leafs are a very dangerous team. Especially if you underestimate them.

I don't think they would care. They will finally get back to the playoffs and that's something. Would love to see them eliminate boston in the 1st round

HNIC is ok, it's no better than TSN, or whomever's coverage. Let's face it, to someone who is a follower of a certain sport, the commentators just tell us things we already know. Personnally I lost a lot of respect for CBC/HNIC when they lost the HNIC theme (More so, they were offered the "Hockey Song" for free and said no so they could hold their awful American Idol wantabe contest for a new theme song.)

I'd like to hear why HNIC is amazing.

It's supposed to be a Canadian show and, last I heard, there were seven Canadian franchises. And yet, here you have the Leafs who are clearly the darling of our supposed "national" broadcaster. And, as in any professional sports, any perceived bias coming from a source that is supposed to be unbiased (i.e. not favouring one fanbase when it's purpose is to cover all Canadian franchises) is not viewed kindly.

I feel really sorry for the Sens, a CANADIAN team from OTTAWA. They get trounced by the Leafs and then have to suffer through the "national" TAX-PAYER FUNDED show celebrating the Leafs' victory and Superstar Kadri's hat trick. Because y'know everyone just loves the Leafs.

That's the definition of a playoff team, mind you.

Nobody will underestimate them and they aren't getting past round 1.

I'm not mad that he IS a fan of those teams. I'm mad that (and this has been discussed ad nauseum) he uses what is supposed to be the national broadcasting channel and a Canadian institution to parade leafs and bruins on there like it's his own private party. All the arguments about revenue for the CBC still don't make it ok for Cherry to devote a once proud institution into Bruins/Leafs lovin time and Habs bashing (they've tried to hide it...poorly).

As for their shows...WOW. I love your posts WS, but you MUST be drunk while watching them. You can tell when a show is made by the CBC, it's that obvious and that bad. Sure, feature Canadian artists, but don't make the shows abysmal. Not funny, low production value and cheesy as hell.

As Alexdaman said, their news is great! Mansbridge is the...Man.

Watch a Leafs game once in awhile and you can notice that the play by play guys are always against the Leafs.Don Cherry got the leafs players in there to troll the announcers and the rest of CBC for their constant Leaf bashing.

You don't know how lucky you guys are having Bob Cole.

Cole has an epic voice but he is out of it. He's not fit to drive a car let alone broadcast a game.

Someone has got to make a youtube of him calling 1 game and point out all the times he gets the players wrong or says something completely senile. It will be **** in your pants funny.
