I fully agree with Bob "leaf nation" Cole at #1, but someone was left off the list who merits top 5 consideration.Have you listened to Bryant Gumbel doing Football? With all due respect to grandpa Simpson,"AYE Carumba"!! It's like listening to paint dry!Does anything excite this guy!

How could you omit Chuck Swirsky on this list?

The guy may do his homework, but he's so blatantly biased and so totes the company line, it causes me to vomit every time I hear him talk.

He's just the biggest brown noser in the biz. He's so bad, I prefer Bill Walton who - amazingly enough as a sports broadcaster - wouldn't know a verb from a noun if his life depended on it.

Bill Waters is horrible but poor old Bob Cole is in a class by himself. It is really quite sad. He never was very good but now he has no clue. Outside of Toronto he is a joke.

This one is for the writer of 'Worst Broadcasters' ...you're an idiot.

your columnist Stephen Ripley is a freeking moron,,, Bob Cole is the voice of hockey,, Don Cherry speaks of what ought to be,and i love watching Terry Bradshaw on Sundays,, honest people all of them, more of us should be this way!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stephen Ripley thinks Bob Cole is the worst sportscaster on television?! What the F is he smoking? Pass some of that over here. The man is a Canadian icon. Regards, J.Holmes Belle River, Ontario

Bob Cole is one of the top TV sports announcers out there today. What are you smoking? Now, I would say John Madden is terrible.

Dude... you know NOTHING about sports apparently. There are REALLY bad ones out there, and Don Cherry and Bob Cole are not among them.

Eric Dickerson... Shannon Sharp... Any of the women on the sidelines of a Fox or CBS NFL game. Kelly Hrudy, Steven A. Smith, ANYBODY on TSN or The Score, Tony Cornheiser, Jim Nance... I could go on and on an on... I think maybe 2 of your top 10 would even be NEAR mine.

No list of the worst TV sportscasters is complete without John "captain obvious" Madden.

"When the receiver doesn't catch the ball, you have an incomplete pass"

"They're down by 7. They could really use a touchdown."

"They'll score if they can just get into the endzone"

or my favourite

"The team that scores the most will win this game."

I was so glad to see Bob Cole deadlast, and Pierre McGuire 3rd to last. They are horrible. Bob Cole is brutally stupid when it comes to hockey, and it's actually comical when he calls a game invovling a western Canadian team. I'm sure he thinks the Oilers, Canucks and Flames are the league's newest expansion teams! Not a rippin' clue who any of the players are.

Harry Neale is no better and Greg Millen is a joke. Best Canadian sports announcers:

Jim Hughson

Chris Cuthbert

Bruce Buchanan (where are you Bucky??)

Rod Black

And for Oilers fans, radio man Rod Phillips is by far the best
