They don't need him honestly and hopefully the station gets rebranded and they bring new blood in or just tie to the Toronto main TSN station or even co-opt the Montreal one.

Yer kiddin', right? You want LESS local content? Yeah, we don't get enough Leafs coverage as it is.

Exactly. 2 or 3 years ago they did tie into a Toronto based program for the evening, and it didn't work because there was almost no local content.

Couldn't agree more. I used to listen to Sportscall at work, but with him on the show, it is unbearable. Two of the most annoying personality traits that a person can possess are:

1) belief that they are funny/hilarious, when they are not
2) egotism

Mr. Stoodley possesses both of these traits in spades.

Awful... just awful radio.

Not sure why but two days in a row Matt Hamer makes me laugh. This guy should get more with his ramblings about his NHL12 experience. Funny!

Interesting Pierre segment today. It was like an infomercial to sell Pierre as the GM of the Habs.

They always do that lol. It's almost an automatic every time a new GM position opens up. Classic.

Stoodley is the creepier version of Stuntman Stu.

Saw him once at a game and he's got a really big head, literally.

Can't stand him on TV either.

Heís on a redundant, second rate breakfast TV show that could be cancelled at any second and acts like heís Regis Philbin.

And I donít know if itís an ego thing or a nervous thing, but ever realize he hardly ever looks at the camera? Mind you, I donít watch the show so Iím basing myself off a 2 or 3 day stretch about a month ago.

Bang on. I used to be on a team with him and that was the general consensus from everyone.

I only caught the last part, but Djurgarden wont let Zibby come over until their season is officially over. It will look bad to their fans if they let a player leave early. They hope he can play 2 games in Bingo next weekend. As of right now he isn't going to play in the playoffs and burn a year, but if the Sens do go deep then it might be worth it.

Bryan also mentioned he would love if Silfverberg could come over, but him and Brynas are playing too well and probably wont be out for at least 2 weeks.

During a 20-20 update, they mentioned that Team 1200 will be "your home for Euro 2012" this summer. Would be sick if they have play-by-play of the tournament. I can remember even if 4-6 years ago pulling teeth just getting World Cup and Euro scores.

Cool that they've added things like the NCAA championship tonight, Jays games etc.

Seems like they are grooming Shawn Simpson to be Mcguire's replacement.

Simpson has certainly been a good addition. As a result there is even less time for TGOR banter and filler which is a good thing. The only reason I listen to the morning show now is because of Simmer, McGuire and the odd guest they may have on.
Healthy Scratches is the best program on the station in my opinion with the power hour being the highlight. Jason York and LLoydy can go off on tangents but they can usually reel it back in before it gets really annoying.

Isn't soccer boring enough just to watch it on tv? It must be like pulling teeth to listen to it on the radio!

Watching hockey is like watching Breaking Bad while watching soccer is like watching American Idol. One is intelligent and exciting while the other is popular.

Who is this Studly guy on Sports Call now? Half the time he whispers like he thinks he is Steven Seagal.

No no no.

I don't want Leafs coverage.

I want PROFESSIONAL SPORTS COVERAGE. I don't need to hear about Yorkie's trip to the Master's. I don't need to hear about "Beechee". I don't need to hear about Simpson's job in Washington. Talk Senators. Talk NHL, Talk 67s and do it NONSTOP.
No more white noise from the announcers. A minute spent talking about Jason York or The Bachelor is a minute I am NOT hearing about the Senators and quite frankly, with the speed of information with blogs and twitter and so on...that's just not acceptable.

Kurt or Kirt Stoodley from some FM station or A Channel I think. At least he isn't Simpson. By the way, big ups to Lee Versage for warning us that Simpson hangs out at a pub on Wellington Street. I'll avoid like the plague so I don't have this bump cozying up to me and going on and on about how me made a decision in Washington and Toronto ages ago.
