i expect it to be a commercial for MLSE. Only thing that would be nice to hear would be an acknowledgment on past failures.

TL has acknowledged past failures several times. But these guys are about the future and need to talk about what they see these franchises doing in the future. I don't care about the past atp.......time to move forward.

He is easily one of the best that station has. Do you hear the morning people on the fan? Let alone guys like Jeff Sammut, Wilner, Lajoie, Alter etc....



The only decent guys to listen to for me are Tim & Sid, McCowan and to a lesser degree Jeff Blair. The rest are a veritable who's who of shitty personalities.

Haaaahhhh!!

I love what McCowan is saying right now. Him and Butch Carter saying that ever since the Raptors came to Toronto the Hockey guys in the organization and in the media looked down their noses at anything related to the Raptors and the NBA.


McCowan: "The Blue Jays play in the summer so they didn't care. Raptors play in the same season and in the same building. The hockey guys always hated the Raptors and put down basketball. Even in this building, the media guys and it still happens."

I have always said this, guys like Damian Cox constantly take jabs at the Raptors and the NBA......and they don't try to hide it. These guys can't stand when the Raptors make any news and i would say the majority of them wish the Raptors were moved. Wait until the NFL comes here.

Damian Cox is the fucking worst. I hate how hes always on with Bob.

Tim, Sid, Bob, and Blair are the only guys I listen to. Mornings suck, nights suck, and all the other SN guys are just puck heads.

Ken Reid is actually nice to listen to on the radio but hes the SN connected anchor so he doesnt come on all that often

TL says they want to renovate BMO field dramatically which includes putting a roof over the stands, adding 10k seats, having the Argo's play there. And they also want to build a "world class" training facility for the Raptors on the site.

So BMO field = Raps training facility/TFC/Argos

Well said. It amazes me how the majority of these hockey analysts love to talk about the Leafs like they are gold when they have suck for so many fucking years. I'm still baffled as to why people support such a horrible product.

Leafs Lowest Ticket Prices for a game against a shitty team, in this case Florida Panthers:

300 Level - $123.75
Gondola Box - $107.75
600 Section - $93.75

Bluejays Lowest Ticket Prices for a game against Boston Red Sox or New York Yankees:

500 Level - $15.85-17.25
200 Level Outfield - $32.50-$35.50
200 Level Past Baseline Sides - $52.30-$58.25
200 Level Infield Baseline Sides - $77.25
100 Level Outfield $37.90 - $41.50
100 Level Past Baseline Sides - $52.30-$58.25
100 Level Infield Baseline Sides - $77.25-$79.25

Raptors Ticket Prices for a game against Miami Heat or OKC:

There are to many to list so you guys can check it yourselves, but on a note, out of the 15 section types listed for the ACC only 5 have a higher ticket price than the Maple Leafs 300 Level ticket price This is just fucking 300 level imagine the horrible prices for 100 level, it's insane.

Damien Cox used to be the best, but that was when he was just writing columns. In the last few years he seems to be full on losing his fucking mind, starting with the Bautista steroid article.

Lajoie = sleeeeeep inducing on some Leo shit.

The only thing i respect Bobs opinion on is Baseball. As soon as he starts talking Basketball he shows how little he really knows.

Honestly my favourite host of the last few years has been Darren Dreger. Too bad he only does hockey stuff.

He acknowledged it BIG time. Really big time.

Said that in the past the fan-bases were abused by short term fixes with profit motive in mind,

New ownership is thinking first about winning. If Masai wants to go over the cap, the $$$ will be available for him.

Mehhh, a little disapointing as expected. Wish he would have asked about the Raptors rebranding....even though TL wouldn't give us much if anything. 90% of his questions were the same ones he asked Colangelo/Burke/Beeston a couple years ago. How hard is it to get FA's, what would you be doing if you weren't in this position, how do you like the city of Toronto etc......

Such a waste of a good opportunity. Questions like what would you be doing if you didn't have this job? What sport would you watch if your sport wasn't on? Why do you love this city? McGowan is a joke. Doug Smith would have been better.

He had 60 minutes to ask good questions and blew it. A junior high kid would have asked better questions.

Theres this guy that's on late night... like 12-5 am, he has a really scratchy voice, sounds like Ed the sock with throat cancer.... he's got to easily be the worst host/voice on the fan.....can't even listen to him for 5 min before changing the station
