Hoops show being butchered!

Just found out that Hoops on the fan with E. Smith, Jack Armstrong and others has been sliced in half. Used to be on every thursday from 7-9p and now it's been pushed back to the 8-9p hour and a new Tennis show is on in the 7-8 hour??

Are they serious? First they take the 2 hour per week show off the Raptors channel and now they cut it down to a 1hr per week show in favour of Tennis? I don't know if anyone watched this show when it was on the RapsTV or listened to it on the fan590, but this is complete bullshit imo!

Does anyone here listen to this show?

ya i listen to the show if i'm doing stuff for work on thursday night or work late. It wasn't bad show I always love the scoop jackson segment. Honestly with new mediums there is so much basketball talk to go around and with E Smith, Jones. Jack and company all on the road now makes it for times the show is totally bad anyways. WTF is a tennis show gonna do anyways in Toronto LOL jokes

I always liked it when it was on TV, but it was only just background noise pretty much, and I almost always missed the second hour when TNT was on.

I do. And considering, basketball only gets one hour a week to themselves is not diversity. Cut into McCowans last hour?? That awful Hockey show from 12p-2p was expanded after you hear scmuck's like howard burger and Hoagie and the rest of the morning morons yacking about Hockey for 80% of every morning. Sorry but this isn't diversity and it certainly isn't balance. It's a joke. Then again i shouldn't be surprised.

Yeah, i like McCowan actually. I was just saying.

As for your other comments......i listened this morning and it was a joke (and when i say listened i mean i listened to the begining of ebery segment to see what was being discussed). They spoke Hockey i would say 4.5 hours between 6a-12p. And then two straight hours of those dickheads on that lunch Hockey show. Shit why not have a Tennis show on the weekend instead of that Fishing show?? lol

Ya I agree they should put a tennis show after got game and the fantasy show. Programming that I really don't care about.

I think when it comes to fan590 programming we problalbly digest about the same amounth but to tell you the truth I stopped listening to the Morning show. Stellicks still pisses me off for trading Cortnall for Kordic and Landry annoys me in every way imaginable. I've listened to other broadcasting for the most part.

As for Hogie I'll listen to his lineup and if i like a couple of guests I'll give the guy a shot. 12-2 is just not worth my time and I"ll listen to the 2-4 and bobcat segments almost all the time with bobcat right after.

The Fan really went downhill and it was mostly because of AM640 and their LEAFS LUNCH which the Fan thought they had to compete with. So they decide to drown the radio with more hockey to win

A shame really

i like tennis, but i don't think i'd tune in.

What about a skiing show, or a darts show?

bad move by the fan IMO.

They also took this off Raptors nba tv, I used to be able to watch it or at least listen to it with it to my back while I was on the computer. I was kinda disapointed as it's my real only opportunity to hear it to my knowledge

You can still listen to it on your TV channel #904 if you have Rogers.

they're not even doing the show every week, they always cut it for some stupid baseball of nfl game. It's a shame, I liked that show when I was driving later a few years back. It's a bit entry level, kind of like doug's blog, but it's great for promoting the game.

Too bad rogers and not mlse owns the channel, we all know rogers doesn't give a fuck about basketball.

I guess we just don't listen on the same days.... because I NEVER EVER hear that much hockey talk. It's a mixed bag when I'm listening.

And for the record, I'd much rather they added an extra hour to talk hockey than frikkin' TENNIS. Bah.
