Give Bob Cole some slack. He's 73 years old and has been on HNIC for almost 35 years.

In his prime he was great. (From wikipedia)Perhaps his most memorable call is from a 1976 game between the Philadelphia Flyers and Soviet club CSKA Moscow. In the first period, the Soviets, unhappy with the officiating, left the ice. "They're going home! They're going home!" exclaimed a disbelieving Cole.

Gee thanks, Deer-killer. Means a lot to me, coming from such an astute observer as yourself.

Bob Costas indeed. What is he? A pygmy or a dwarf? Not that there is anything wrong with either group eh?

Yep when you open this contest to include the Yanks, you really take the lid off of the septic tank.

Yup America. Where the men are men. And the sheep are nervous.

GUSTAV, Your comments made me roll over in stitches. You should write sitcoms. Here`s one Bob"america is the greatest" Costas. When Canada`s relay team won the gold over the US, all he could say was.."it would have been alot different if Carl Lewis was there". Right you pompous flag wearing loser.

Have you all forgotten that big pansy Brian Williams. His hissy fit over the Canada/Russia brawl @ the Jr champs was worthy of buying him a dress. I cannot stomach this long winded bore. How about a couple CTV gems from before,Ron Reuss,or the worst ever,Johnny "figure skating" Esaw

Every sportscaster on sports net. I like the "he passes to him." Well who is ha and what team does he play for. The best was on oilers game I watched a few weeks ago and the comitator said that I believe it was dallas was out shooting Edmonton 9 shots to 0 however edmonton had the only goal in the game (to that point). I've taken up muting the TV and listening to music through the game as it is closer to what is really going on.

Bob Cole for sure. He has no idea what is going on during the game half of the time. He forgets the players names and calls them "the player" instead. Hey Bob the ref blew the whistle, is it a penalty? Just go to commercial and that should give you enough time to figure out what happened. Give it up Bob. Ohhhhh Baby!

If you think that Bob Cole is the worst commentator, you had better get NHL Centre Ice and listen to most of the American commentators!

I had NHL Centre Ice about two years ago and was all excited the first day or two, but after listening to the American broadcasters turn games into a snoozefest and chatting during most of the game, I soon lost my excitement.

Don Cherry is the worst by a mile. He sucks almost as much as his beloved Maple Losers.
Roy, 2007-12-07 21:58:07

Hey, I resemble that remark! You think I am bad, you should listen to the idiots they have on the Team 1200 in Ottawa. There's a reason the station manager named one of their shows "More On Sports". The pun is totally appropriate....the Ottawa player gives up the puck to Big Hal Gill...whoops sorry, got lost there for a sec. Those younger guys should stick to colour commentary and not bother us legends...I am a Hockey Hall of Famer!
