  1. Why! Bob Cole is demoted to the “worst” series deemed by Rogers.

  2. David Amber goes from marquee Montreal series to being the reporter for Bob Cole… Holy!!!

  3. What’s with the Bob Cole hate? He is still great. He should be admired, not hated. I mean he’s in his 80s, still working, still doing what he loves, still entertaining. We’d be lucky to get to that.

  4. I am a huge Hawks fan since the ’69-’70 season…can’t believe i will have to listen to him again calling Hawks games in the playoffs, what a downer. He is always behind, many times he doesn’t know what just happened and mixes up the players names. I guess i’ll have to watch TVA sports :( :( :(

    • I feel your pain. In 06 Oilers Cup Finals, I’d watch NBC feed to avoid Cole calling players wrong names (Mike Peca is 5’6 140 lbs and white, Georges Laroque is 260 lbs not white and 6’2 or 6’3 how do you mix them up, especially when Laroque is a healthy scratch), or not even trying to name the players (“Here come the Oilers”). Ref has arm up, whistle blows, Cole speculates that it is an offside, etc. I remember him in an article blaming the press box location for errors. Too bad the other broadcasters had same vantage point.

      Great voice, great cadence tho. He is a legend.

  5. I’m assuming the next round will be Hughson/Simpson/Healy and Romanuk/Johnson/Galley? Or will they have someone between the bench for the second crew?

What do you think?
