Is it just me or is anyone else excited to see Chris Cuthbert not only to have a job back (he was fired from CBC not too long ago) but to be the main colour commentator with TSN. He will be doing the majority of the CFL games with Glenn Suitor.
I personally thought that he was the best broadcaster with CBC and better than anyone on TSN (especially boring John Wells).
i agree completly, man I can't wait for fiday night football... and speaking of broadcasters you know the worst broadcaster in any sport anywhere?.... the guy who does buffalo sabres games, he is without a doubt the worst play-by-play guy anywhere
Riders4eva I too was excited to hear the news. Definately TSN's gain and CBC's loss. I question CBC's move as I'm sure many do. As well, why does the CBC start televising CFL games in the fall. TSN does a great job all season long and then CBC gets the big games in the fall. Booooo. They don't deserve it. And to top it off we get Mark Lee over Chris Cuthbert. Someone in Sports needs their head examined. :?:
I'm glad Cuthbert is going to TSN. Friday Night Football is the best TV football experience there is, and it'll only get better now. And I agree with the question of why CBC gets the important and late season games as well. I like CBC, (especially their camera work) but I personally think the TSN product is better overall. But regardless, TSN promotes the CFL all year long, you'd think they'd get the spoils of it all as well.
Good for Chris! (And us!) He'll be great on Friday night football! I'll take Suitor any day over Walby.....Walby must have pictures of the CBC Pres doing something....because I can't understand why he is still there.
Cuthbert will also enhance TSN's hockey coverage as well. TSN 's gain is CNC's loss!
Ditto on Cuthbert. He's probably the best sportscaster in Canada - football, hockey, Olympics, whatever.
CBC made a HUGE mistake. They better have some good new blood coming along, or this'll be yet another example of bad management at CBC Sports.
As for Rick Jenneret, how do you not like the guy? A true legend. If only more US commentators had his passion for hockey, the game would be doing better down there. Actually, I'm pretty sure Jenneret is Canadian, so I guess that explains it
Cuthbert will be a good addition to TSN, no doubt about it. I agree Suitor is less than the best but I would take him over Walby. Mind you, as I said in another post I am actually thankful when Walby is there, because when he takes a game off then Darren Flutie moves from CBC's boring panel (they can't hold a candle to Climie~Schultz or Climie~Schultz~Dunigan) to the broadcast booth and he drives me insane with his CONSTANT references to players by their first names, as if every single player in the CFL is his personal friend (Henry made a good throw to Matt and he would have scored but Duane made a great tackle). Annoying in the extreme.
On top of all the other reasons posted as to why it is unfortunate that CBC gets the important games at the end of the season, here's another one....TSN will use HD, and CBC won't...........big mistake.
