Thanks for the nice replies, everyone. Hopefully you'll keep following this feed. Will still tweet on hockey, just under a different name.

At least part of what they wrote is accurate... "cause we aren't qualified ".

As for who is funnier, that is totally a matter of taste. Personally, I find them hilarious. Could do with less cats though.
This is why I like them too. They talk a lot of Canucks, but also a fair amount of everything else. More-so, you can tell they actually watch those other sports as opposed to guys like Price, Pratt, and Paterson who just spew out questions but do not actually follow them.

oh no, i've got a sneaking suspicion they'll be going to sportsnet.ca. if so, this is a lateral move at best. it may be a pay upgrade but the sportsnet website is awful. sell outs?

Not really seeing as if they did that they would be going from one media conglomerate (Bell and Postmedia) to another (Rogers).

Somehow I get the feeling that their target demography doesn't include you.

I would actually be curious to know what the appropriate qualifications are for a comedy/sports talk show.

The way they stated that they'd be around to some guest appearances on 1040 makes me think it has to do with TV. Don't think any radio station would have guests from a competing station.

I still can't believe "The Moj" won the afternoon gig. Only notable thing he's done is get ridiculed by Gillis, which I hope happens more often.

Looking forward to their next gig. They're great.

Don't mind me, just doing my part to invent new words and add new meanings to existing ones here.

Yeah because all these sports media types are qualified for anything. Most of them can barely write or report to begin with. And apparently years in the business hasn't resulting in them learning anything either - witness Damien Cox or Steve Simmons.

I like Pass it to Bulis but it's not like PITB was on the radio. Kurtenblog was one of the highlights of 1040 for me.

i would stay up here in DC just to listen to the Kurtenbloggers talk. they were such a treat. I'm going to miss their radio show and the blog.

For canucks: pass it to bulis and canucks army has it covered it very well. But in general sports with a vancouver leaning, no other blog covered it better than KB.

Gotta wish them luck in whatever they are doing, they earned whatever it is.

Kurtenblog was actually pretty entertaining.

I find Pass it to Bulis not funny at all and really second rate. Seems like they try and bite on the schtick of the Kurtenbloggers.

While it's not a fitting word for that sentence, it most certainly is a word. So you're saying that their target demographic is people who have a wide vocabulary?

KB clearly found a better opportunity, I see no chance the province would fire them, same with team1040, they are arguably the two best guys on the radio.

Just to add more fuel to the Sportsnet/Rogers Radio fire.

- One of the guys saying congrats on the twitter machine was Sportsnet's Dan Murphy. Why would one say congrats unless he had information of a positvive move for the formerly known as Kurtenbloggers?

-Another mention was made Shorty during the Canucks broadcast after the LaPierre 'fight', saying that they must be angry about the Kurtenbloggers ceasing to exist. He could just be a fan too...but seemed strange that is was mentioned.

Rogers Sports Radio seems like a real possiblity, especialy with the Canucks rights coming up next year...here is an interesting article from August...
