Are you glad HNIC is staying on the CBC?
Mon, March 26, 2007

The CBC will announce later today that its longest-standing tradition — Hockey Night in Canada — is staying on the network for the foreseeable future.

The Sun has learned a news conference involving the CBC and the NHL has been called for noon today in Toronto to make the official announcement.

There had been widespread speculation for several months that CTV Globemedia would make a major push to take Hockey Night away from the CBC, which has carried the Saturday night series for more than 50 years. No program has a longer history on the public broadcaster's airwaves.

CBC to keep NHL contract

I gave up watching HNIC years ago thanks to the Cole-Neale and Cherry-McLean tandems. I have heard cattle auctioneers chant at a slower pace than Bob Cole, and spared me a pychological evaluation on each critter in the process. It is television! We can see what is going on Bob! Cherry, give your duds to Value Village in time for Hallowee'n.

Its good for cbc To retain The rights to Hockey night in Canada.I really enjoy watching the games and waiting for grapes to go off the wall once in a while.With cbc losing the rights to cfl games im so glad they managed to hold on to nhl.

Maybe if they brought some real and new talent inn. Bob Cole and Harry Neale's best before dates came around 1999. Mark Lee is the sorriest excuse for a play-by-play person since TSN tried using John Wells to call hockey in the mid-80s. Ron and Don's act is so old, it isn't funny or relevant anymore. The only talent on HNIC is Jim Hughson.

6 more years of cbc and the nhl....my hemorrhoids just began bleeding again..The clown,and the goof (cherry /mclean)the alzheimer twins (cole/neale)

IT GOES ON AND ON !!

I agree with some of the other respondents - Let's see teams other than Toronto every Saturday night - There may be 5 million people in the Toronto are, but that means there are about 25 million other people who cheer for a team other than the Leafs

I can't beleive this, just when it looked like we were getting rid of Ron and Don, now another 6 years!

I think I'll start watching basketball.

It doesn't matter who gets HNIC but whoever does please get rid of Cherry. He's just a racist buffoon.
