Love listening to Struds. I remember when he was first on the air and he sounded awkward, now, dude is just getting better and better.

I have no worries with Sutherby either. I think he'll take off too. Let's not forget he was a high draft pick and had to reinvent himself to stay in the league. Some people don't understand how great these players are to even make it to the NHL. Not to mention I met his Sutherby's sister back in the day and she is absolutely smoking hot...worked at Diamonds as a server I believe.
You must have missed the week where Gregor tried to convince everyone that trading the number one overall pick for impending UFA David Clarkson was a good idea if you really think he has good insight regarding the Oilers.

Yeah, Gregor and his drum of "Bigness with the Hitting" over and over gets old.

What does the following mean:

http://www.tsn.ca/toronto/story/?id=451378

"- NHL hockey – including 26 Toronto Maple Leafs games, 52 Ottawa Senators games, as well as pre-season games (available on a regional basis), plus local hockey programming generated by production expansion at TSN Radio stations in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Winnipeg and Edmonton"

CHED has Oilers rights for another couple of years right?

Yes, as far as I know, they will probably do expanded game day coverage, pre-game then continue with the post game as well.

TSN is expanding to 5 national channels, what are they going put on there? Are we going to be to be able to watch the strong man competitions from the 70s again?

As long as they keep showing a couple AFL games every week, they can have all the national channels they want.

Honestly it could just be TSN trying to show up Sportsnet and force Sportsnet to expand and spend money.

Pretty much just a dick swinging move to get the public on their side.

TSN 5 - 24 hours of Aaron Ward attempting to be funny and Mike Johnson trying to complete a sentence without a 7 second pause in the middle.

Aaron Ward is hilarious....maybe I'm the only one that thinks that?

His references to Danny "####ing" all-star are amazing.

The morning show is starting to lose me. More and more Nielson & Fraser are becoming prisoners of their own bits, several of which I actually thought were funny before they were run into the ground.

Seconded. Those songs were okay at first, but they're getting terribly overused at this point. The Encarnacion one especially confuses me because they're not even a local team. That's fine if Dusty is a Jays fan, but I'd estimate that only a small portion of his listeners share his interest.

I'll cut em some slack. their number one topic, the one that is 80% of their show, and really, their raison d'etre, has let them down again. try filling 20 hours a week without discussing the Oilers. they should be talking about game 5 in Cali right now.

side note - Nielson hasn't even worked in Edmonton and experienced a playoff game.

What kills me about the morning show, is 7:45-8:00....the actual time I can listen to the show uninterupted on my drive to work.
Absolutely nothing of substance during that time.
The Sales meeting minute.
Russell Drathoits stock advice
and various other comercials which occupy at least 10 minutes of airtime.
Most days I cant even catch a score or story on my drive in to work.

Half the time it's commercials when I tune it. Some are so annoying that I purposely make a note never to buy their stuff. They talk about a lot of Junk sports as far as I am concerned and they chatter about garbage most of the the rest of the time.

I like the banter, sometimes they let it drag on a little, but yeah, the commercial breaks are terrible - there are mornings I get in my car, drive to work, and hear nothing but commercials... the same damn commercials - over and over

The amount of advertising is way over the top. Ive actually stopped listening to a lot of the programming for that very reason.

I could get in my car after an Oil Kings game, drive into deep millwoods and maybe catch the start of Strudwicks show a couple minutes from my house. The rest was solid ads. Disgusting. Not to mention lazy. Pathetic production.

The morning show is just starting to lose you? It lost me about a year or so ago. Only other difference between you and myself is that I never thought their "bits" were funny at all.

Other than that, I totally agree with your post.

I tune in only for the Spence Diamonds commercials.

Sean Jones makes me want to buy diamonds and make deep, long term commitments to women.

These ads are gold. Gold and diamonds.

A perfect fit, just like my love.

The greatest day of my life (besides the day I gave my beautiful, loving wife a dazzling solitaire) was the day I discovered the Spence Diamonds Blog. Yes, an actual blog. After I'm done reading it a few times everyday, if I have time, I stop by HF Boards.

I love that they talk alot of Raptors, Jays and other sports. Oilers dominate the airways, and it's nice to have more national and international coverage.
