Team 1040 vs CKNW 980 ( Dan Russell, Tyler Green, Joe Leary, Paul Debron Fired)

I was a long time listener of team1040, but after the frustrating hosts in price and Jeff, I recently tuned into CKNW 980 Sports Talk and I have to say.

It's not even remotely close. CKNW 980 is by far the best sports-talk show in Vancouver.

Here are a few reasons why I think CKNW has changed significantly and have drastically improved there show.

Team1040 Cons - You can make a point, but you will get cut off after a very short take a majority of the time with ZERO response.

Extreme bias towards the Canucks organization, Refuses to debate topics, If they disagree, that's the end of it.

Talk over callers significantly, Hard to make a point with the constant interruptions.

And most of all, Beat to death the same topics from nearly every single game.

1-2 Hour show.

Team 1040 Pros - They usually have some Canucks guests right after the show, including exclusive radio calls and highlights.

If you get lucky RICK Ball will do a post-game show (Rare)

CKNW 980 Cons - David pratt occasionally does guest appearances. (However he is less annoying then usual)
Dan Russel sometimes is a bit of a FIRED Moron


CKNW 980 Pros - Lets the callers TALK as much as they like, They will answer, Put you on hold, Respond, and then let you respond (usually multiple times)

They don't force you to agree with them, They will let you debate, even if it's a terrible Call.

Simply less bias and honest Hosts, not to mention respectful.

3 Hour show. (sometimes they have 50+ Callers) Like tonight.

Summary: If you guys have NOT listened to CKNW 980 recently, Start listening. They have changed, and are a great radio show in Vancouver.

I just read the sports news and keep a eye on Twitter ever now and then. I don't even bother with sports radio. Sometimes if I am bored I will tune in to Team 1040.

So much better than 1040 it's funny. They are engaged and talk about topics in-depth, fair to callers, etc.

And I like Pratt.

I just called into 980 and gave my thoughts about why I think AV should go. First time I've ever called into a radio show, I feel a little better now

TEAM 1040 refuses to let anyone who disagrees with them talk at all, and then spend the next 30 seconds after the call trashing them.

If 980 is letting people talk something has changed. That is the most annoying thing about these radio shows is how they cut callers off and insert their opinion that you've already heard exactly 64 bazillion times.

Sorry I just don't see these hosts as some wise masters of hockey analysis that they seem to think they are.

Neither do I, just followed him on twitter, seems to be a real hockey guy and hockey fan doing a radio show as opposed to being a radio guy who covers hockey simply as a job.

He is critical of the canucks team and is worried about the team, so I am sure the part of the fanbase who thinks everything is fine and we should support the team even when its putting in garbage effort likely wont enjoy him.

1040 may have a bias towards the Canucks but Price and Patterson are so anti Canuck that its nauseating. They're terrible.

Actually all of 1040 sucks. Including Taylor.

Pratt on CKNW is the best. By far. Ill give Sheldon a listen.

Although I'd cut Luc off too

They're not even just anti-Canucks; they don't know what they're talking about...

as dan russell likes to say, TEAM 1040 is house radio. you are not allowed to say a single bad thing about mike gillis or you will get the larscheid treatment. it was hilarious hearing them skirt around questions about gillis when callers brought it up.

980 was pretty great today. It was jam packed too with callers.
