Yeah, Wheeler confirmed this a week ago on air. He stated having a second child as the reason for leaving the extra responsibilities of this, essentially, second job. Time away from the family etc. I can relate a little because when we had our second child, it has definitely taken up more of my personal time.

However, I can't help but wonder if, after the "Helmet Pardy" fiasco, True North told Wheeler to "find a way to quit without making us look bad so we can both save face".

P.S. Oh, and PLEASE NOT Ace Burpee, as much as people hate on Wheeler, I hate that dude even more.

Thank god. I hate seeing Wheeler's gross mug on the big screen at every Jets game. He needs a haircut and shave badly.

Please no more annoying Winnipeg radio personalities.

Can we lose the stupid little trivia games to win a t-shirt as well? Wheeler's time-filler games completely suck all the atmosphere out of the building during TV timeouts. Lets get some inspiring movie clips playing, some clips of old Jets1.0 plays, something to keep the crowd buzzing. Why have all these family friendly games if families can't afford to be in the building anyway?

Or how about family-unfriendly games? Like doing body shots off of Sara Orlesky or something.

I don't think the commercials at every whistle are Wheeler's idea. TNSE has to pay the bills, man. That ice doesn't make itself!

Is this the experience in every arena now? Just non-stop shilling throughout the game?

Anyway, I don't know if it'll make much of a difference what buffoon they put in that spot. Maybe a supermodel? What's the Russian women's curling team up to?

I would take Canada's own Kaitlyn Lawes over any of them.

Instead of a permanent person right away, they should get different ones for awhile, then pick from the best. Im not sure how many personalities there are around this city but that could be fun for a couple months

How about Hustler, from Hustler and Lawless? Or Gary Lawless himself (just kidding!)

Haha I saw it and was like OH MAN!

I've pestered Kyle Balharry since the Jets returned to work in that department.

PS I nominate Vicki Shae. She's a great girl, has very good charisma and is super hot.
