Morning show is ok but Landsberg can get on your nerves after awhile.

After a while? Landsberg is absolutely insufferable. I think the only reason he's still employed is that his charity work does the heavy lifting for his  over the top narcissism.

Ferraro is great, and I actually like Burke in a media role. I don't agree with everything he says, but he's lived an interesting life and isn't an unintelligent man. Equating him with Cherry isn't accurate.

McCown was slipping for a bit, but his game has been upped again since The Fan brought in Brunt and Deitsch to co-host for the majority of the year.  That's my go-to show.  Beats having Reid and Cox as co-hosts, the latter which made me change the station immediately.

I must be the only person who thinks Overdrive sucks.

I find Landsberg to be really, really good at what he does.  He's well spoken, he can conduct a great interview, his voice is easy on the ears, he is knowledgable across many areas.

The thing with him is though is that he can become really crusty and ooze off this ego in which he comes across as a prick.  And I respect his mental health battle and all that he does to bring awareness to the situation, but I find he falls back on it all the time.

Check your hot dogs, folks. ESPN reviewed Food Safety reviews for all of the big league stadiums and Toronto has done...not great.

I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.

I think it sucks too. It reminds me of guys in university/college arguing about sports. Which is fine and all, but I graduated long ago.

Joe Bowen piece on his Hall induction:

Great nugget: after Auston's 4-goal debut there was a celebratory gathering in the hotel lobby with Brian and Emma and Joe said I can get you the calls and he went up and emailed them.

I do not believe that I have ever been on this site before. I found it as I was searching for what happened to Scott MacArthur on the afternoon TSN show. A couple of interesting items in this piece about Scotty Mac and the Fan590 morning show. Seems like TSN 1050 ratings must be doing okay.

I don't know why I continue to listen to Dreger. In the span of like 10-15 minutes he managed to praise Dave Nonis again for the Leafs build and reiterated a Nylander for Pesce trade that the Leafs should apparently revisit.  This was today on Leafs lunch

Nonis was garbage and we were lucky he wasn't able to execute on more of his plans. Thanks for getting rid of Clarkson and getting Nylander and for your ass getting hit on the way out.

Remember that he was the one who signed Clarkson in the first place and even though he was able to dump him, having Horton on the books this year severely limited the Leafs ability to improve the roster this season.

We could have also potentially had Bolland eating up another $5mil in cap space this season if it wasn't for Tallon saving us from that.

Most of the time I listen to the radio it just makes me realize why some fans have such bad opinions.

So true.
