very annoying. there are so many, it's hard to remember them all until the name is mentioned. i'm not a big TV/Radio kind of guy, but i caught a few shows of his. I don't know what's more annoying his arrogant attitude or the submissive kiss ass attitude of those he brings around him.
That is so bang on. Great point!!! If u dont think McCown is boss your not on his show. If u dont think he is always right, then your not allowed on his show. All his guests have to act like Bob McCown is their Idle. If in a middle of a sentence Bob cuts u off and u dont keep quiet and let him rant, your not allowed on his show. He butts heads with guys who dont back down, i.e. Doug Maclean. U could sense the tension between those 2. If u have an opinion in life, McCown does not like u .
Thinks Steckel is our shut-down center. Picks him apart randomly, even on non-related topics. Subtle Jabs.
It was brought up that Reimer and Bernier are basically the same guy (in terms of being a proven netminder) and that there would be no point in acquiring the Kings goalie. Healey counters that argument by citing how good Bernier has looked in practices. Practices...
have you ever listened to Mcguire. He talks the whole frickin game which I cant stand. Acts like he's a know it all when's hes not. Gets excited over stuff thats not that exciting. And 90% of the time his insight is completely false.
I play Jr. A and remeber watching the recently WJC when i forget who on Canada got Rocked. He went to the bench and took of his visor (because new visors pop in and out) to clean it and make sure it wasnt scuffed and Mcguire starts screaming "OMG HE BROKE HIS VISOR WITH THAT HIT BLAH BLAH BLAH!!!"
Like come on bud. ***** UP!!!!!!!!!
what does I play junior A have to do with anything? just curious. nothing at all to do with the discussion or the rest of your post so did you think it would somehow impress? lol
he used to tick me off but lately ive been warming up to him maybe its his no bs type attitude i dunno
I don't mind Bob for that reason. He doesn't pretend to know alot about hockey. It's a hockey town so he's forced to cover it. He's not afraid to ask tough questions during interviews. There's no smokescreens. I appreciate that honesty, even if he rubs me the wrong way much of the time.
Hands down, Michael Landsburg. The worst host of the worst sport show in Canada period. Not only in discussions the concept seem to be about the one who'll talk the most loudly but most of his one-on-one interviews are a circus, a joke.
Bob Mackowitz (sp?) - I still have no idea why hes hosting a sports radio show. Who is he and what did he do to make me trust his opinion? Hes made some ridiculous comments over the past couple years. This one that takes the cake for me (paraphrase). Was at last years Trade Deadline Day
Cybulski - I wouldnt move Kulemin for a late 1st. He scored 30 goals last season. Hes got fantastic potential.
Macko - Potential is overrated. Burke should have traded him for a draft pick.
MIKE WILNER ... a calculating homer who insults listeners who disagree with him and uses deceptive stats to make misleading arguments;
GLENN HEALY ... get the impression he made unintelligent teammates think he was smart by making sarcastic comments all the time, his game analysis is horrible, made his second (third?) career with NHLPA by posturing as pro-player, then as soon as he became a broadcaster again and started missing paycheques due to the lockout he threw the NHLPA under the bus, as phony as a $3 bill;
ROD BLACK ... note to Black: during a football game in the immediate aftermath of a flag, both team's players point at the other side's player as being guilty of the infraction, the inverse is true on a turnover, this is not news, it is certainly not worth telling us everytime there is a flag or a fumble which direction the players are pointing, how come virtually every other broadcaster on television has figured this out except you? similarly, watch your bloody monitor, he nevers knows whether there was a gain sufficient for a first down even though the viewer does because Black never watches his monitor while doing a game, and stop yelling all the time!;
DARREN DREGER this guy is a fraud, he brings no experience or analysis to the table he has simply made a career out of prostituting himself and reporting every leak some rich and wealthy power broker in the NHL gives him.
DAMIEN COX totally sold out to his Irish Catholic buddy Brian Burke (no offence - I am Irish Catholic), I've heard him prattle on about drinking with Burke, playing tennis with Burke and Burke rave about what a great writer Cox is for his Ovechkin book; and then Cox criticizes the Burke firing as if he is just another objective observer, his smug laughter at his own lame jokes on PTS is bizzarre as often nobody laughs with him.
Listening to him talk about hockey makes me want to swing a sledge hammer and destroy things. I can not stand this guy. Macowitz is a know-it-all, arrogant jerk, who knows nothing about subjects he seems to ramble on about. Never hire a man with a PERM to do sports talk!!!! He gives u nothing when u listen to him, its all B.S.
