I'm thinking the "BIG" change might be John Shannon no longer on the show as co-host in the 4 o'clock hour.

Overdrive for me. Like O'Dog, Noodles, Ferraro, Bobby Mac. Like listening to the ex-players and get their perspective on things.

Same here.  I can't stand McCowan and his...





dramatic pauses while he speaks.

I prefer the locker-room-esque banter between the 3 guys on Overdrive.  Just sounds like a more natural conversation to me and I just prefer their style and opinions.
Me too.

Cant believe Bob is actually gone. Doubt it was on his own terms considering how abrupt this came about.

Im done with Toronto sports radio. Stumbled across OverDrive on TV this afternoon during Gerrys percentages, with Noodles dropping percentages like 71% and 17%. Get lost dweeb.

If my first listen to Overdrive came during Gerry's percentages I would probably never have listened again, so I am glad that was not the case.

O'Neil was away yesterday so it was Hayes and McLennan (Noodles) and they interviewed Nick Nurse and I thought it was great. Bob certainly could do a great interview at times, but he seems to have lost interest lately. Hayes did a nice job with Nurse and I walked away from it with a better understanding of him and some of the things he went through personally during their drive to the championship.

They clown around a lot. Sometimes too much. But at the end of the day, I think Hayes and the host and O'Neil and McLennan as the ex-players do a really good job interviewing players, coaches, GM's and/or drawing out the most in conversations with guys like Ray Ferraro, Bob McKenzie, Darren Dreger etc.

I enjoy OverDrive when it first started, but I soured on it pretty quickly.  Way too amateurish for me -- I could have the same conversations with my buddies over a beer or with the people on these message boards.  I also find O'Neill and Noodles to be complete d-bags (moreso the latter).

And the constant use of Ferraro, Dreger, Bobby Mac, Kypreos, Marek, Buck Martinez, etc., is what I find tiresome these days.  Same crap each and every day with the guests coming from within.  That's what I loved about Prime Time Sports -- there was variety to it.  Now it'll be a 24/7 fest of dissecting the same thing over and over.

I didn't mind him and will kinda miss him after all these years but he really is a dinosaur.

That's what's appealing about it. Almost like 3 guys just hanging out shooting the breeze. It's entertaining and funny. And no one interviews and has more fun with ex/current players then these guys.

I would listen to Maclean over any of the other Hickey Central guys. I really like Overdrive, just easy listening to a few clowns.

When he comes back I doubt it will be on AM radio... and I don't subscribe to streaming radio or infinite data so sad news for me.

Well I guess that clears up whether he was fired or not. Side note, it's somewhat weird that he's not verified on twitter.
