Yeah, always hated that smug asshole. Watch that one eyed jack turn up on SN. lol

Another guy I always hated was Steve Kouleas. How that hyper fuck keeps getting work i'll never know.

HNIC used to be an institution. I mean we can all recite the theme, almost all of us have watched at least ONE game on a Saturday night. It just sucks what's happened but I guess that's capitalism at work.

Interestingly, I wonder what this does to TSN. That's a huge property to leave. SN has enough room on their channels to air a game constantly. It's kinda fascinating to watch. If I was TSN I would so target emerging markets while maintaining a presence on hockey (they have that with Winnipeg and Leafs games). I would make a larger investment in basketball (Who the hell has NCAA games?), and soccer (grab Serie A, Ligue 1, Bundesliga, La Liga, - when they come up and then eventually EPL thereby crippling SN World). Save for the EPL, I don't know who carries those other properties (boo Goal TV).

from what i read cbc gets no revenue, but they do get to advertise other programming while HNIC is on

rogers clearly didnt want to be known as the company that killed hnic on cbc

in 4 years hnic will be on a sportsnet channel, not cbc

TSN will probably cover all 82 games of whoever drafts Wiggins

Bob Cole used to be great, but the guy is slowing down big time. Sad to listen to.

and still head and shoulders better than Hughson.

i don't actually need anyone to tell me what is happening on the ice. it is pretty easy to follow with HD big-screen tv these days.

Bob just makes the game more enjoyable by bringing his personality to the broadcast.

Tbh...i watch most tv sports with the mute on these days...just find it much more enjoyable
I would much prefer if stations just went with field/ice/floor/crowd sounds...i find most announcers to be nausiating these days

I'm interested to see who gets brought over from TSN. Too many good hockey guys to not bring a few.

Most of the guys SN has now are homers, so I hope they go out and get some new talent.

i'd also love for a Raptors game to finish on sportsnet or tsn and there be a post game basketball panel on the same channel.

but no, as soon as the ball game is over they IMMEDIATELY start talking hockey news.

Are you insinuating that they don't show basketball highlights at all? That is a lie Jeff and you know it. Every hour they show them at least once.

Haahh! I shouldn't have to wait 20min. Nobody expects NBA highlights to be first, we don't even get that in the playoffs. lol

The good part of this... won't have to hear the Neil Peart version of HNIC that pretty much ruined the iconic song.

Why shouldn't you? They show them in specific order so you don't have to wait. Don't turn it on until :20 and you won't wait at all!

But, I do realize my opinion is going to be biased since Hockey is my number 1 sport.

i get why you'd be upset.

I've stopped waiting, period. I mean why would anyone wait at this point for any highlights when they're available to everyone twenty four hours a day. The last couple years imo has changed everything when it comes to shows like sportscenter. They're not needed.

This is going to kill off half of all CBC ad revenue. They should just pack up the regular tv network and stick to the news channel and radio.
