I'm not sure what Botchford has against the whl? He's always been a "Fox News" kind of reporter...the Team 1040 has lost so much credibility since they've been infiltrated by The Vancouver Province sports department. I wonder why that paper is hanging on by a thread?
I used to listen to sports talk back in the day.....I got tired of hearing callers that were making valid points being cut off and ripped a new arsehole in a five minute rant by Russell, simply because he didn't agree with their opinions. He lost all credibility with me when he spouted off about Prince George being a crappy hockey community, simply because the locals stopped lining Rick Brodsky's greedy pockets, when he's put zero effort into making the Cougars a winning organization for 15+ years!
However, I do respect his years of service in the media.
