I'm a fan of Rick Ralph and I enjoyed his spots with Hustler lately, however I did notice something weird. When he was on with Hustler, he seemed to be continually interrupting both Hustler and the guests. I found it distracting.

Im assuming it will improve the longer he's on the show, but I'm wondering if anyone else noticed this?

Agreed. Both are quick witted and fun to listen to. Should make for some good banter.

I'm not a fan of RR. His sense of humor is really weird. Not funny at all and pretty predictable after a while. His show was basically ok when he stuck to the script, but when he injects his ad lib spin on it, that's when he loses me.

I know it's not his fault but also all that bs about my pillow drives me crazy. Especially how he throws it in there in the middle of a dialogue, where it sounds like he's going into another story, and it ends up being a plug for my pillow.

Some of his earlier dialogues with Shane Hnidy were cringe worthy. Shane's learned to handle the weird questions he would throw unexpectedly his way like a champ.

Yeah not a huge fan of Ralph's humor myself. His quips often leave guests baffled and confused trying to figure out what he's talking about.

Yeah, I always feel sorry for the guests who don't know him.

I can generally take (rarely) or leave (usually) Gabe Morency but he just did a very good shoot promo ripping on the Mayweather McGregor fight that was actually pretty well done.

Hustler confirmed Kevin O will be taking over DonVito Roundtable. I don't have high expectations, but hope he proves me wrong.

1290s analysis is a lot better to listen to than the geriatric show.

Putting Ralph on with Hus weakens an already weak station. Those two are the only ones who now what their talking about. Now there is only one time slot to listen to that station during hockey season. Notice I said during hockey season?

As for podcast.....Marek vs Wysh is the best hockey podcast out there. Anytime you can listen to Marek you should. Rogers is grossly underusing him in their hockey coverage. They used to do a podcast everyday but since Rogers got the TV rights they went to three days a week and now only once a week during the season. Go listen to some of the older podcasts. They're fantastic.

Puck Soup is another great podcast. It's Dave Lozo and Wysh. It is once a week and comes out on Thursday. Mostly hockey but they do discuss pop culture a little. Very worthwhile.

The nice thing about these podcasts is there not Toronto centric. Overall hockey talk.

The PDOcast is another good one.
If you want some laughs the AIH Superfans Podcast is good. They discuss the Jets.

Kudos to Rick for bringing some sanity to the toucdown and win non winner.


Any word if Kevin O will be doing the call in and post game show after Jets games?

Yes, Rick has said Kevin O will do both the Roundtable and post games.

Agreed.

Also, as mentioned, the PDOcast and, to a far, far lesser extent, Maryk vs. Wyshynski (Wyshynski basically being what everyone hates in Toth--uneducated hot takes and unearned broadcasting confidence).

RR was chatting and it sounded like the ratings on the Round Table were really good and grew over the years too. Good for him I admit RR grew on me over the years.

He grew from "meh" to "Favorite radio personality" pretty quickly for me.

I don't even agree with him as much as I do with other guys, but he speaks in an intellectually honest way when he does voice his opinions. It's something that I've grown to appreciate now that I'm in the reporting business. He's also more than willing to absolutely bury callers on call in shows, which I enjoy immensely.

Oh, and they could be like most casual fans and drone on about why our MNT is no good and ranked behind the Faroe Islands and Sierra Leone. Another hour of fodder right there!
I have no clue what this even means.

I heard some talk of it on the morning show the day after the Guiana game but nothing about the Malouda thing.

I'd rather they say nothing if they don't know what they're talking about. I've heard them use FIFA rankings to predict World Cup groups enough to know that a lot of casual fans don't know how stupid FIFA rankings are.

It's looking like a quarters match against Jamaica on Thursday if this Mexico score holds so we'll see if it's mentioned then. The team looks much better under the new manager already.

1290 does their best football (soccer) work when they bring on guests because sadly Footie is not in any of the guys wheelhouses. Eating gets better coverage. When Hus brings on Nick Zif during World and Euro cups he is entertaining for a non expert.

Troy tries but doesn't seem to have a firm grasp on it. I haven't heard that guest before.

He is a local restaurant owner (Nicolinos) who is a big sports fan and I think he and Hustler have great chemistry on the air. They share a passion for sport betting which I have zero interest in but Nic is passionate about Footie and similar to how Libel was with baseball they can bring a sport to life with their passion. The reason I know Nic and Huss have chemistry is when they are talking about betting on the NFL I find it entertaining and humorous and I don't bet on the NFL.

So the new guy in Rick Ralph's spot wasn't too bad. Definitely more jovial sounding, and seems a bit more upbeat on the air. Not necessarily a bad thing imo.

Kevin has a good sense of humour and is a happy guy. Too bad ctv cut local sports coverage and let their staff go. Glad he found work but would this be a promotion or demotion? I like Kevin O.

Have to agree, Kev O seems like a solid guy, I would guess TV to radio would be a backward step!
