    A great host, to be sure but,the PREMIERE host? How do you figure that?
    That may be your opinion (which you’re completely entitled to as it is your fan blog) but the fact is this: Ron MacLean hosts the top rated weekly sports program in Canada (HNIC), the Stanley Cup playoffs for two months worth of viewers in the millions and, usually, the Olympic Games. Also, he’s done this for 30 years. To most sports watchers, that would qualify him as the premiere host in Canadian tv sports. James Duthie hosts the Grey Cup once a year, the World Junior Championship once a year and a bunch of regional Leafs games. He’s great, but certainly not the “guy”. If you live outside the Toronto market you see him on a couple of big events a year. That’s it. Comments like that expose you as a fan who doesn’t quite understand the sports media business. C’mon.
