I am in a complimentary mood today. Just was able to hear the first hour but thought both shows were good.

I listen to Greg in the first half hour, I am really liking this guy. Great sense of humor, doesn’t take everything too serious, but you can tell he’s smart and confident to make fun of himself and the show. Reading angry feedback because of his questions to Stajan and Wilbur agreeing with the listeners. Not many radio guys I actually find fun, but he certainly is.

Then I turned to PTS and Zelkovich on and he was good. Most non-hockey beat writers seem so complimentary and rose-color glasses in the sport they are covering. But Zelks really went deep in the troubles the Argos are having, including what I thought of for a long time that a lot of their stadium crowd is either getting tickets for free or a huge discount price.

I am not being critical of Argos doing that, sometimes it is better to try to fill the stadium even giving free or discount tickets and they do get good ratings because of TSN great work in promoting CFL. But I always thought the attendance numbers were inflated and it’s the reason of them losing millions and give Zelks credit for saying it about the sport he follows.

I did hear a lot of Zelkovich on. He was stronger in his opinions on the air than he often is in the newspaper itself.

As for Brady, I do find it interesting Watters wasn’t mentioned. I feel like the old guard still listens for his opinions, but let’s face it, with each week and month going by, he is certainly less relevant. He’s obviously being well-prepped to do non hockey-interviews and was lost last week when Alan Frew was in.

Brady carried the ball there being the eighties loser that he is – haha. But it’s an interesting scenario like Leno and Conan in a way. When does Watters quit? How long does Brady want to be second billing? He’s clearly running the whole show and setting Wilbur up a lot for his opinion, but when does he want his own show? When does he want to work with a younger guy so his references aren’t lost?

They do seem to have good back and forth. The Kovalchuk stuff right around 6pm was great. Not sure who would fit the Watters glass slipper if Brady wasn’t working with him. I listened to Jeff Marek a fair bit with Bill, and I don’t think any logical person argues, he’s got not near as much to offer in being as well-rounded as Brady is. Having said that, he does try too hard sometimes. He’s funny as himself, doesn’t need to force it.

I agree with you Julian.

If I was running The Fan, I would try to bring Brady over to replace pretty much anyone from about 6am to 2pm. I would enjoy hearing him in more of a general sports show format.

I think Wilbur is off to Florida during the upcoming NHL break for the Olympics so it’s possible Brady will be solo for those two weeks.

Sometimes Brady goes a bit too far when criticizing someone or something but he is almost never boring and is usually quite entertaining………….the segments with Jolly Jonas are brilliant because Jonas refuses to say anything negative about anyone on the Leafs so Brady (and Wilbur) makes sure he pokes fun at him for that.

I am almost the same age as Brady (I just turned 42 and I believe he is 38) so I enjoy a lot of the references he makes…………it can’t be easy to work with someone who is 30 years older but he handles it quite well………………and I like the fact that he seems to enjoy communicating with his listeners via e-mail and Twitter (and sometimes even on this blog)……….anyone who hasn’t checked him out on Twitter should do so because his messages on there are fun to read
