There is a limit to how much time that can chew up though. As it is, there is already a lot of overlap and repetition beating the beejeeus out of every little thing.

The online staff needs to get there crap together on switching over the online radio. Can't say how much I dislike having to listen to 5-10mins of the American crap they play all day while I wait for TGOR or the Healthy Scratches to get started.

If I tune in by radio it starts right at 3pm where as if I tune in with my Iphone or on the computer it can take up to 3:15 some days before they switch the feed by which point the show is already in progress.

Tuned in for the first time all season to get my fill of playoff talk. I don't mind the 3pm show but everything else is not very entertaining or informative. I used to eat this stuff up too.

I find talk on message boards and twitter updates is enough for me these days.

yeah a lot of people don't seem to like dave gross, but i don't know why. i think he's great at hosting with different guests. i find him quick, knowledgeable, subtly funny, and sounds like scott macarthur on the radio. and seems to get along really well with anyone he's paired with.
he's one of my favorites.

Got in car this morning, dial was tuned to 1200 from drive home last night when I was catching the post-game show, first thing I heard was "email the team yeah! duh duh duh duhduhduh" and immediately turned it off. I mean, how ****ing old is that? Like a previous poster stated, I used to think it was funny but it gets old after 4 years of the SAME gags / soundbites. Come on guys.

A female called in TGOR yesterday which they have literally not stopped talking about, so don't bother tuning in for the next month or so as it will take them that long to come down from the high that is.....briefly talking to an unknown female listener over the phone!

Yeah, I tuned in after 9:00 yesterday, and the chatter was all about a caller and how little she knew about hockey. We're in the middle of an unexpected playoff run, and they can't find an interview or think of a player to talk about? Enough snark.

wow, all you guys do is whine and *****. team1200 is not that bad. it's just is what it is.

you can't have hockey 100% of the time. there just isn't enough to talk about before things get rehashed. on top of that, i don't want it to be just hockey. i'd like to hear about other sports as well. it isn't a hockey station, it's a sport station.

as for tgor. it's not that bad. you guys are way too critical. tune into any other station and you'll get similar chat/humour. it's just the way radio is.

re-branding the team to tsn would be a negative move in my opinion. you'd get way less local talk. a lot less than there is now imo.

Couldnt dissagree more... I find his "humour" awful and it seems his fellow panelists do as well. Same as Bob McKenzie. Dead air after Gross' subtle jokes. Seems to try to hard to be funny. I actually can tolerate him when he just talks hockey but not when he tries to be funny.

I am personally disgusted with those "talking heads" on the morning show on AM 1200. Yesterday morning they were basically saying that Hagelins suspension was not worth 3 games because he was a Swedish rookie and a buddy of Alfies. This morning they were calling for an indefinate suspension for Raffi Torres to include the rest of the Stanley Cup playoffs and some regular season games next season. What a bunch of clowns.

Considering Sportscall goes on hiatus in the summer, in favour or American programming, the TEAM 1200 either doesn't give a crap about that time slot or will only do something about it in September.

It's pretty much been the timeslot where hosts go before they get canned...Dave Gross (the first time he got canned), Kulka, Melanson

And that's only who comes to mind right now, there may be others

I don't know how much power the Team has do make any major moves.

i just cant fathom how at 3pm on the dot they dont switch over from Fox Sports to their own programming and commercials.

its seems so mickey mouse.

i finally decided to tune in today to listen and get pumped for the lead in to the game and........ Pat O'Brien is talking about his father working in a meat packing plant.

good work fellas, good work. i mean it is what they do as an organization - broadcast. you would think they could broadcast the appropriate content.

brutal.
