Morning Line- Bob Cole

“I’ve been doing playoffs every year of my life in broadcasting. This is the first time that I’m not involved, it’s difficult to live with the fact that I’m not working. I surely will miss not working the playoffs. That’s the best way I can say it.”

-Bob Cole.  Michael Traikos of the National Post has more.

yeah well ... we all knew SportsNet would fux0r things up when they first bought the rights but this is just flat out disrespectful to Bob.

If they’re worried about him being 84 years old and getting ‘fragile’ then they should be honest about it and tell him to his face they want to cut his schedule because they want to make sure he stays healthy and alive.

If they’re going to cut him out of the broadcast schedule, say so up front so his career can be properly celebrated ... don’t try to slowly sweep him under the proverbial rug and make him slowly disappear.

These days, the only games I truely enjoy on HNIC are the west coast games that John Shorthouse calls.
