Re: New Sports Radio station? About F'M time!

I stick with TSN690 in Montreal or Sportsnet590 Toronto. I can’t take much talk about basketball and football, plus it’s a much more interesting conversation than the frat party and anger on 97.1. I like to hear from People who were involved in professional sports, not Carl from Livonia who doesn’t ...

Re: Ron Cameron In One Word:

Wait a minute? Slats actually called in? Dang it! I would love to have called in and asked what the league was upset about when the Oilers switched to Nike sweaters in the early 80’s?

Re: Fenech Banned

What does Tigers management have to do with the interaction of a newspaper reporter and the member of another team? I don't understand tge logic. You know, I didn't communicate that properly at all. Why I tied them to the paper I have no idea. That's what I get for posting before coffee. Sorry abou...

Re: Fenech Banned

At this point, considering the current aptitude of Tiger management, I’m actually going on the assumption that JV is in the right. I would really like to hear what his reasoning was for this, but we’re talking about a guy who has a sterling reputation with the media and fans who encounter him.

Whatever the issue (which as Jeff and CJ notes is none of our business), I hope she recovers soon. She seems like a genuinely good person and does a ton in the community.

Re: Jennifer Ann Wilson's downtown Plum Market puff piece on WXYZ

I really miss the cafeteria that was there before that this Plum market replaced. That was a great affordable breakfast and lunch option downtown and it was usually packed around noon. This Plum Market has big shoes to fill. That cafeteria was a twice a week place when I worked across the street. I...

Bob McCown out at Sportsnet 590 Toronto

TorontoSportsMedia.com is reporting that longtime Toronto sports talker Bob McCown will be doing his last show either Thursday or Friday. Rumoured to be interim replacement will be 590 afternoon guy Jeff Blair. To me, McCown is the gold standard of sports radio. In recent years he has been less inte...

Re: Ron Cameron In One Word:

Wow, I’ve never heard of Hal Naragon and I consider myself a Baseball history buff. Here’s a good Cameron story while I’m at it. In the early 80’s one of my dad’s friends was playing for the Mariners. Cameron knew my dad and asked if he could get friend on the show, and they worked out the details f...

Re: Sinclair Seen As Top Bidder At Fox Regional Sports Network Auction

As someone who spends significant time travelling, I am a bit anxious to see what they will do with the streaming. I do like to be able to watch the Fox Sports app wherever I may be.

Agreed, MW, he got off easy here. If he didn't intend to severely injure or kill the victim then he clearly had no logic at all. The first thing he should have expected to happen was Grimes to fall off the vehicle.

Re: What’s happened to WJW-TV??

I’m a little south of their target (Canton area) but it seems most of the locals are pretty staunch Fox 8 viewers. Maybe it’s the long local morning show, as that’s a big deal in this area. I’ve always thought of them as equal with the ABC 5 crew and light years ahead of WOIO 19.

Re: CanCon You Like, CanCon You Don't Like

I’m disappointed that I grew up in Detroit, listened to Windsor radio and watched channel 9 all the time, and never really heard of most of these bands until a couple of years ago. Listening to Boom 97.3 from Toronto introduced me to a lot of bands I never heard of. And I hope you’re happy, stopnswo...

Only Stompin Tom could rhyme INCO, Stinko and Bingo all in the same song.
You have to WANT to like Stompin’ Tom. He is not something I can handle in large doses.

Blue Rodeo definitely Canadian. I know they’re all Toronto guys. If you guys don’t mind, I was hoping you could explain the term to me since I’m not sure I understand it properly. I actually was thinking more along the lines of what CanCon really means. I’m 41 so I don’t remember the glory days of ...
