Just say no to USA time filler. Would rather Mike Richards or Dave Naylor tape delayed. Also, what about Bob McCown...Prime time sports? Also done, I would imagine.

Mark Spector leaves 1260.

Since TSN is taking over, Spec had to quit. This really sucks. There is only one Mark Spector.

Good luck Spec and get back on the airwaves in Edmonton somehow.

Weird to hear from a Canucks fan though I feel Spector is pretty unbiased.

I don't know why some people in this market have such a problem with other sports talk besides hockey being on the radio. Something that has always baffled me.

Never thought of that, but that's great news.

McCown is way worse than Gregor when you disagree with him. Every hit is a 30 game suspension in the NHL and they barely had the last CBA figured out and now they have a new one to deal with.

Yeah, he's an awful human-being. Seen it time and time again, once when he threatened to "ruin" some posters professional career by posting his real name. And this over a disagreement on a blog.

Like, honestly...

Bob McCown or Jim Rome? Hmmm who would I want to hear on the radio? If forced to choose I'd pick the aforementioned Spence Diamonds commercials on repeat.

Actually I fall into the category of like Bob's show. He has great panelists, great guests and is a superb interviewer.

Egomania aside, his show rocks.

To each his own I guess. Maybe you'd like it even better if they added loops of Art Angelski and the goof from Playmore Tables & Games to the Sean Jones (Spence Diamonds) repeats. Personally, I'd prefer Rome & McCown.

Overall I like the change to TSN. Unfortunately it won't address the sub-par ESPN programming that currently serves as nighttime/weekend filler on the TEAM.

MC79?

Speaking in code is exactly what I hate about the Rome show. I don't want to need a decoder ring to follow along.

Not my favourite person either, but it is good to hear challenging points of view and he does know some stuff.

Rome is a polarizing figure as we can see in here. Either love his show or can't stand it. I've been listening to Rome since the late 90's. He was on one of Calgary's stations for a few years before 1260 came to town.

I can definitely see how somebody new to his show would be like wtf is going on and tune out. If you've been listening for a long time though, the show is hilarious. The inside jokes and soundbytes from the past are what makes the show. Go to Youtube and search for his best takes if you ever want to kill 2 hours laughing your ass off.

Rome at least provided a break from the Oiler talk for a few hours, and the general seriousness of most talk radio shows. I mean, do you people that listen to the radio all day honestly want 12 straight hours of content that is 80% Oilers/NHL related?

This is a hockey board it shouldn't be shocking. There are a tonne of people out there that listen to Rome and refuse to listen to all the Oiler talk, but they are also the same people who don't spend a lot of time on hockey message boards.

Opposite for me. I tune in for sure when hes on. Breath of fresh air having fancy stats on the radio. Love it. Then again, I'm not afraid to admit most of my views on things he talks about are very similiar to his.

I love Nielson in the mornings tho, I feel situation is very similar to Jim Rome. I love American Football, and I love alot of his guests, but I don't get the jokes. With the Nielson and Fraser show in the morning, I get all their inside jokes. Club beat loop, Redskins practice, The Rookie, Encarnation song, and all the others are things I know, and enjoy re-hashing. If you don't get it, then its obviously just drivel. I think they as a team are getting better. Fras the contrarion has been picking his battles better, minus the whole Oiler's training camp thing.

Eh Spec, I love Spec as a guest, but could take him or leave him as a host. It's weird.

I enjoy Gregor. Now that he's married his humor has shifted slightly, and it's shifted in the right direction. I really like Lowetide, not only because he's HF alumni and a happy Oilers blogger, he's just so genuinely excited. He's honestly a personification of alot of us after we've gone through a PG filter I feel. He's best when Allison fills in for cConnor tho, she has better side kick chops than Connor imo.

I agree.

Dellows stuff is always detailed and well thought out.

I can understand disagreeing with him but I dont get the lack of appreciation or the hate at all.
