also I love Joe Bowen but it must be grating for non-Leaf fans to hear him huff TO's dong all night, is that what you people are expecting from a national broadcast?

[QUOTE=crump;42194363]yup. Watching the second game of a double header (a western game not involving the Leafs), and out of the blue Healy says while describing a shot on goal... "What was he thinking, you just don't score from there....unless you are playing the Leafs."[/QUOTE]

You've got to be kidding me. Did he really say that? Can anyone confirm? That's a new low, even for Peely.

Do you watch HNIC or just playing devils advocate for the trolol factor?

No, it's not.

yes it is, I'm not sure if you were watching the game, but with the way the Leafs were playing they were lucky to get out of that period with the lead

Like Egg McCraig said, persecution complex. So sensetive for (presumably) grown men.

And CBC admits that. Most of the time they something negative about the Leafs is when they're losing, which they have done plenty of over the years.

True, and I enjoy Simpson, Hughson to a lesser extent, but Healy drives me nuts with his constant bashing and lack of any postivie comments towards the Leafs.

Everyone takes it differently, but Healy is flat out bitter, and if I'm going to watch HNIC on my TV on a national broadcast, there's just no motivation to hear that crap.

I've mentioned it in another thread but Hughson does radio spots in Vancouver mocking the Leafs chances of making the playoffs. And if we go back a few years, Simpson stated that if he were to get drafted by Toronto he would refuse to sign, fortunately we got Wendel. He has always been a Leaf hater. That being said, the combo(s) doing the west coast late night games are absolutely atrocious. You would think that doing the late night game they would have announcers who could keep you awake but they are just the opposite. Bob Cole should be doing these ones, even he could put some excitement into a Calgary game.

P.S.

Play the Jim Hughson drinking game. When he is not doing Vancouver, take a sip every time he mentions something about the Canucks, chug it if he mentions the Sedins or Loungo. Most nights you won't make it to the second period.

Hughson is boring, Simpson has no charisma, and Healy is either dumb or anti Leafs or both. Now I don't mind if one is impartial, but back it up when you make a hockey related comments as Harry Neale once did.

Most here know Healy has made comments of Leafs players getting caught up ice and gotten the player's number wrong on a regular basis. That's inexcusable when you think you are smarter than the majority of the hockey world.

I think it's pointless to send a complaint because that means you're watching (and listening). It's much better to send a compliment on how much more enjoyable the broadcast was last Saturday night. You don't even have to mention Healy's name, the CBC can probably figure that out.

Sorry we can't all lose in game 7 of the Cup Finals and set our city on fire. If you'll excuse me I'm going to watch clips from when the Leafs won the cup, maybe you should do the same with the Vancouv.... wait.
