Flames broadcast team doesn’t realize their mics are on, rip Dougie Hamilton to shreds

Flames defenseman Dougie Hamilton has had a hell of season in Calgary, but don’t tell Calgary’s broadcast team that.
In his second season with the Flames since demanding a trade out of Boston, the former ninth overall pick in 2011 recorded a career-best 13 goals and 50 points during the regular season, which ranked as the ninth-most points among NHL defenders.
The playoffs have been a bit of a different story for the 6-foot-5 defenseman, however, as he’s taken four minors in two games of the club’s round one series with the Ducks, including the penalty that led to Anaheim’s game-winning goal late in last night’s Game 2.
He, and everyone else for that matter, heard about it, too, as the Flames broadcast team went off on Hamilton, seemingly unaware that their mics were on.
Announcer one: “Brodie’s is … that’s just a complete lack of … you got no composure when you’re doing that. He’s down already.”
Announcer two: “If you don’t rip Dougie Hamilton, I will. Stupidest [expletive] penalty you can take.”
Announcer one: “How about the T.J. Brodie one, too? But you’re right, that Dougie Hamilton one.”
Announcer two: “Does he have a [expletive] brain?”
Announcer one: “He doesn’t. He’s stupid as [expletive].”
Announcer two: “I don’t know him that well.”
Announcer one: “He’s not an intelligent guy.”
Announcer two: “You’re Mr. Flames, so you probably know him better than I do.”
Woof, that is rough.
Hamilton and the Flames, by the way, did not agree with the call.
