Oh thank GOD. Mark Lee was the WORST.

Wait, the tweet from 1040 says he's doing Jets games?

er..crap, hold the celebrations.

"HNIC makes the official announcement: Rick Ball joins the west coast broadcast team handling play-by-play duties, for Jets broadcasts. Don't worry, though. Baller will continue calling #BCLions and Canucks games on TEAM Radio."
-TEAM1040

Not sure why it says "for Jets broadcasts". I guess that means for Canucks HNIC games we're stuck with Lee still? Shorthouse usually does radio for not Sportsnet games so Baller should be able to do HNIC.

This is good, i guess. I really don't like Rick Ball, but Mark Lee is the absolute worst.

"Sadly, we must report Rick Ball is calling WPG games, not Canucks. Maybe CBC doesn't understand "west coast.""

I was so happy to hear that Lee was gone.
But now I feel like dying because CBC doesn't know what the west coast is.

Too good to be true... does the CBC know where the west coast is in relation to Manitoba?

This is a really stupid statement. Very few announcers have such an obvious bias to or against a team, and anything you're hearing is you projecting the result of your victim complex onto an absolutely terrible but almost definitely low-bias broadcaster. Mark Lee sucks because he is bad at broadcasting, not because of some phony favoritism nonsense that you want to perceive.

Winnipeg is West Coast?.... is CBC operated by Americans or do people in Toronto only learn about Ontario and exclude the rest of the country?.
