He was actually starting to grow on me.

lyrrad 07-12-2011 03:15 PM

Krystal was getting beat by an American syndicated show on TSN Radio that talks nothing but ball sports.

So naturally, the writing was on the wall.

Mr Lahey* 07-12-2011 04:02 PM

He was God awful.

ThreeHundred 07-12-2011 04:25 PM

Yeah he was horrible I thought too. Only thing I liked was his Habs jokes

wallnerr 07-12-2011 04:29 PM

He was brutal, I listened to him for like a half hour one morning and wanted to blow my brains out.

thats how i felt the first time I heard him but I actually started to like him in the 1-4pm time slot.

I think the person that should be moving on is Don Kollins, nothing that guy has done has been a positive change.
Its a good thing TSN Radio has been horrible, or else the fan would have been in big trouble.

Call me crazy but could we have at least 1 Maple Leafs fan host a radio show in this city. I listen to 550 Buffalo sometimes and I love hearing the passion their radio hosts have for the Sabres. Why cant we have one radio show where the hosts are actuallys fans of the team. Im sick of the negativity that guys like brady and McCowan have. And I am not talking "Fans" as in they worked for the team... I mean fans as in actual people who follow the team.

Pretty sure Stellick is a Leafs fan

Actual fans start blogs and do webcasts

Steve Kouleas is a giant Leafs fans. He has a show on TSN radio during the noon hour. But I believe it's on hiatus during the NHL off season.

Interactif 07-13-2011 08:55 AM

Don Kollins has ruined the FAN 590, if I were him I would go back to it's roots and get as many old fan alumni back into the rotation. TSN radio doesn't look to be going anywhere, wonder how long this format can continue.

Christ 07-13-2011 11:07 AM

Fired because he sucked. One of the few good moves that the fan has made since their renovations...

huh? Kouleas? If he is, he covers it up awfully well.

Ralph is a Leaf fan, he seems to be co-hosting the Watters show this summer.

Krystal is a Leaf fan, was pretty much the only one on the FAN.

Can't stand Brady and his lame pop culture references and smarmy attitude. Hate him almost as much as Mike Wilner.

MB Duchene 07-13-2011 11:19 AM

Is Bryan Hayes from tsn radio not a leafs fan?

Yeah I agree, there waaaay to negative.

I hate it when people who know nothing about hockey - just blindly make fun of the Leafs.

krystal claimed to be a leaf fan, but he trolled us leaf fans more than anything

after the habs were eliminated he spent a whole show proclaiming how amazing the habs were and said all we leaf fans want is for our team to be like the habs

He said that? I actually was happy when TSN 1050 went live. It gave another option ofther than the Fan590.

Penalty Kill Icing* 07-13-2011 11:37 AM

Slightly OT, this is about Bill Watters of AM640. Refers to Franson as '3rd July kind of guy'.

I doubt there is a bigger Leafs fan on Toronto radio than Kouleas. If you bothered to listen to him at all over the years it should be painfully obvious.

I remember that show. No doubt that he was saying that stuff to get the phone calls coming in, but I agreed with him. I think the point he was trying to make was he wanted the Leafs to be a pseudo-contender like the Habs have been the last few years. What's wrong with wanting your team to play meaningful games for a change? I guess any criticism of the Leafs is trolling now.
