It was bad enough that the Cats played really bad but to listen to the negitive talk from the CBC announcers drove me nuts.They put down Hamilton everytime they had a chance. We had this discussion for the last couple of years, CBC needs to get rid of Chris Walby.
TSN should call all the CFL games and CBC should stick with Hockey and the Olympics only.
If your wondering why I dont listen to 900 CHML and turn the TV down its beacuse I cant pick up a clear reception and the web cast is delayed to much.
As a CFL fan in the States, I dread the loss of CBC coverage. Whether it's good or bad, it's the only thing I can get here in metro Windsor (ok, the Detroit area). I've actually picked up CHML on occasion, but it's really tough. At least they webcast the games, but if I'm not home, I can't listen, and paying to watch the games on the computer is definitely not going to happen here (at least until that's the only way I can get it).
I thought is was kind of fun hearing Jesse called by his father's name the first time, but a pro should do better by his game preparation.
Wasnt that Mark Lee doing the play by the play ?? He really really hates the Cats for some reason . He is so bloody obvious about it that it almost makes you laugh . He`s the worst announcer we have doing CFL games !!!!
BUT WHAT ABOUT THE SIMPSONS EVERY WEEKDAY AT 5!!! LOL And such quality programs as Little Mosque on the Prairie and greatest Canadian invention. Walby is like the CFL's John Madden both about as useless as a chocolate teapot. The type of person the public are just watcing and waiting to see choke on something inedible such as a small automobile.
It would be pretty difficult to say anything positive about the Cats during the last couple of years. I just wish the CBS would show the time clock on a continuous basis in their graphics. I was having to guess how long I had to wait so I could turn Saturday’s game off at half time. :x
Let's not dump on the CBC...if it wasn't for them there might not even be a CFL. During the dark days it sure helped to have a public network on your side.
I like their coverage--though, must say, it's not the same without Cuthbert. Look forward to hearing his call on TSN.
And, yeah, they did seem hard on the Cats. That's a good thing. If a team puts up a stinker, I expect it to be called accordingly.
