Remove Jim Hughson as the Leafs' play by play commentator

Leaf fans understand that because Hockey Night in Canada is a national broadcast, there should be some level of neutrality in the play by play during the game. Even knowing this, Jim Hughson is not the right person for the job. 

On the Leafs' broadcast Hughson actively roots for the other team and his analysis is anything but neutral. Shouldn't the Leafs' play by player be at least a little Leafs leaning? There's nothing more aggravating than having the commentator of the team you love kick you when you're down. Criticism is great, the way Hughson does play by play is not. 

We are calling for the removal of Jim Hughson from Leafs' broadcasts. Find someone who isn't here to boast about how great the other team is. We're not asking for a complete homer, but at least someone who isn't happy when the Leafs lose.

This is Canada's biggest hockey market, let's treat it that way. Jim Hughson is out of touch with the broadcast viewers of today and having him as our play by play commentator is a slap in the face to leafs' fans around the country.
