This week on the show that was recorded before the Robert Kraft story broke, we go in on owners anyway! 49th Parahell's ROB ROUSSEAU joins the show to talk the Raptors loading up at the deadline, Colin Kaepernick's massive settlement in his collusion case against the NFL, the useless bloodsucking of sports owners, and the way professional sports fandom warps your perception of labour issues.
This week on the show that finally got fired, FlamesNation columnist MIKE PFEIL -- our man on the ground in Edmonton -- joins the show mourn the loss of the NHL's dumbest GM, and celebrate the legacy of the man who unquestionably ruined the Oilers. PLUS: Why this year's Flames are different, what the NHL got right at this year's All-Star Game, and what it still needs to fix going forward. And a little transcription creates a heap of trouble.
This week on the show that might waive, but then again might not, J.D. BURKE of The Athletic Vancouver stops by the show for a lengthy discussion on where the Canucks are at after the midway point of the season, what they should do about Alex Edler as trade deadline approaches, and how the Edler conversation is over-shadowing some more important decisions the team needs to make either at the deadline or during the off-season. PLUS: Why everyone hates J.D., and getting real about the lifestyle of those trying to break into the current sports media landscape.
This week on the show that bombed out in the quarter-finals, sportswriter STEVE EWEN (PostMedia, The Province) stops by to wrap up the World Junior tournament that took over Vancouver to start the new year, and all that talk of junior talent leads to a discussion on the Vancouver Giants, and why you’re unlikely to see hockey ever return full-time to the Pacific Coliseum. PLUS: Lacrosse’s return to downtown! The rise of Vancouver’s basketball culture! And how the Canucks are failing Elias Pettersson.
This week on the show that has singlehandedly killed the UFC, CHICA bassist and Justin’s Top Marks co-host JOSH CUSTODIO stops by the show to make sense of the latest Jon Jones drug test mess and break down an eventful UFC 232 card that helped the company put a positive exclamation point on what had otherwise been a rocky 2018. PLUS: The search for UFC’s great babyface! Amanda Nunes and the future of women’s MMA! How Conor vs Khabib has become The Prestige! And we’re all enjoying dunking on Darren Rovell, but is there some level of truth to his perspective? Plus the boys dish on their favourite movies of the year.
