Further evidence CBC hates the Ottawa Senators

From James Mirtle via the Globe:

The CBC's play-by-play shuffle: Bob Cole and Greg Millen will call the Ottawa series

Seriously, who's wife at CBC did Eugene Melnyk or Daniel Alfredsson sleep with? Did some Sens fan beat up one of their kids at school?

Not only do we get Greg Millen back after he left to joyous cheers for LeafsTV and their viewing audience of 11, but now senile Bob Cole as well? Be prepared for retarded analysis and a whole lot of calls containing the words "the Senators player". I for one can't wait.

Guess it's the mute button plus the TEAM1200 audio feed for me for the road games.

At least you guys get your games in HD...The nice picture will make up for announcers.

Finding out Milen is on for the Ottawa series is the pee in my ceral this morning. That guy is the most BRUTAL annoucer on the planet. Thanks CBC for sticking it to Sens fans once again.

I long ago trained myself to tune out the play by play and colour guys, and just focus on the game itself. It's mildly irritating that we get such a horrid pairing, but what do you expect, it's CBC. These are the geniuses who fired their best guy, Chris Cuthbert, during the lockout.

That's what you get for spreading misinformation about Andrej Meszaros and housing the country's politics ;)

Hey, anybody know if there will be a Toronto radio station that will do Ottawa play-by-play?

If local Ottawa TV isn't interested in showing all of Ottawa's regular season games I think it is not hard to understand why Ottawa isn't at the top of CBC's choice of Canadian teams to show nationally.

David, I actually think the Ottawa series is their top priority. Bob Cole is considered CBC's top play-by-play man based on his assignments, and Millen is certainly their number two color guy.

I hate the way Cole says "OTT-a-WHAAA" in his perverted newfy accent. Drives me nuts. I sure hope he learns our players names.

I dont have to hear Millen butcher the Calgary series!

It does not matter who calls your game on CBC, you guys are just lucky to be shown nationally on CBC but no one can pull crowds to the TV like Leaf games can. But my leafs are not in the play-offs and like I have told everyone, your team is very lucky because if the Sens were to come up against Leafs Nation then they would have lost like usual.

Your team will not win this year and I will cheer against them like all of Leaf Nation I HOPE WILL!!!
