OT: Doug MacLean on Prime Time
 
Did anyone catch MacLean on Prime Time today? It was very entertaining to say the least.

Summary: Over the last year or so MacLean publicly sided with Bettman and the NHL on not allowing JB buy the Coyotes through bankruptcy and got into several arguments with Bobcat and Brunt about it. Today, MacLean signed on to be an adviser for JB and likely would be his GM if he got the team. Bobcat invited him onto the show today to defend this move and they got into a heated argument. MacLean made it personal by making fun of Bobcat and how he operates. I'm not sure on their past but I don't think they really were friends and they definitely aren't now.

Ya that was great. I wasn't sure if they were just joking or not. But when they were finished and Bob said he'd never invite him on the show again I realized it was serious. Great radio lol.

I caught this, it was entertaining. McCown was basically trying to get MacLean to admit that he was just changing sides because he has been offered a nice NHL job if it goes through and MacLean wasn't about to do that. I don't know the history between the two but there was definitely a bit of snarling before Bob pulled the plug.

Anybody got the clip handy, would be very entertaining to see over and over and over

RogerRoeper* 09-10-2009 08:27 PM

Maclean looks just pathetic in this situation. He was owned on the station he's been hosting a show on the last several months.

Mogwai 09-10-2009 08:28 PM

It was hilarious. Bobby is an idiot too tbh, but Maclean just made himself look like a tool, and TBH, this image is going to hurt balsillie.... Ugh, moron.

Leafidelity 09-10-2009 08:28 PM

I need to hear this. As far as I'm concerned they're both giant tools.

Ratboy 09-10-2009 08:29 PM

Wow, what a tool.

I'm trusting Bobcat owned him, like he should. Maclean's been on like a 3 or 4 month vacation anyway.

dybbuk 09-10-2009 08:32 PM

Podcast anybody? Havent listened yet, but, it should be this. http://qml.quiettouch.com/files/radi...2009-09-10.mp3

Jaysfanatic* 09-10-2009 08:34 PM

I listened to it. Bobcat said he'd NEVER have MacLean on the show again as long as he hosts it.

Jackothy 09-10-2009 08:35 PM

If anyone was watching it you could see bob getting pissed...
was quite entertaining to say the least. Lol McGown and Mc Clean, that was funny.
Mclean is such a tool though, he just went in there attacking, i was surprised bob didnt lose it

Scoogs 09-10-2009 08:42 PM

It's on the FAN590 website if you don't want to download it.

I hate both.. But MacLean really bugs me.

BIG BLUE 09-10-2009 09:06 PM

if Balsillie gets the team, I'd say that aint a great choice for GM

Zardoz 09-10-2009 09:08 PM

I don't like bob, but he came across as the cooler head there for sure.

I can't stand Mclean, never could, this is just more reason to dislike him.
"c'mon boooooooob!"

ugh.

Shows Ballsilie doesn't know JACK about hockey and doesn't deserve a team!:handclap::sarcasm:

BIG BLUE 09-10-2009 09:11 PM

maybe he's just using him to have a hockey guy in tow...and if he gets the team, he either keeps the current GM or finds a good one, and Doug can have some other management title...

if he gets the team that is...

If he wins the auction, I think the he and the NHL will come to some deal IMO.

They must have not liked one another before this because the only reason Bob had him on was to rub in the fact that he changed his stance on the issue.

My two favourite parts:

1) When Doug said that Bob was being quiet and letting his buddy do all the talking, Bob responded by saying that he lets his co-hosts talk on his show.

2) Doug said that Bob had been bashing him for two hours before the show only to boost his ratings for the last ten minutes. Bob responded by saying "come on, Doug, you know I don't need to do that."

MsWoof 09-10-2009 09:23 PM

That was priceless! Loved how McCown told MacLean that he (MacLean) doesn't let Armstrong talk on their radio show, either. MacLean talks over everyone and interrupts constantly and he was even worse tonight.

Suntouchable13 09-10-2009 09:25 PM

Doug is even a bigger tool than Bob is, and that is saying something.

I agree 110%, they are both giant tools.

By the way I think you can hear the fight on the fan 590 website

robdicks 09-10-2009 11:37 PM

firstly im gonna say that imo bobcat is probably one of the smartest men in radio. If you dont agree with that, then that is fine, but you can't argue that he is entertaining because he still is the biggest hit on the Fan... Bob was bashing Maclean all night long, but you got the sense it was kind of like just poking fun. the thing i was the most dumbfounded was maclean came on and just started purposely calling him bob mcgowan instead of mccown. it was a disgrace and maclean really made himself look like a child in that interview. lmao BOB freakin MCCOWN needing Maclean to boost his ratings? give me a break haha

neoen 09-11-2009 12:01 AM

for everyone that says bob is a tool, thats a goal for some of their audience. They need to have a host that ticks some people off, to create talk. What would happen if the show had a guy that was always agreeable? Would you listen in to just agree? No, that would suck. Bob is a big deal because when he takes a stance on a subject, he sticks to it.

The other thing with Bob is that he is so logical that no matter what stance hes taking on a subject he is always able to at least make you think. Theres never really a time when you sit there and say wtf is this guy taking about that doesnt even make sense. Even if you disagree with him you have to appreciate his points are very well thought out.

Durr 09-11-2009 03:09 AM

i'm not a fan of bob mccowan's approach, but the guy is smart and that's why i still listen in. i would pee my pants if i were to face off against him in a debate.

NoamHemsky 09-11-2009 07:52 AM

Interesting...

This is the result of two huge egos colliding.

I will have to agree with MacLean on one point: McCowan should have had him on first before he started laying the boots to him - at least to hear his comments regarding the situation.... then lay the boots to him.

Most people would have their backs up walking into the situation that
MacLean did.
