Listen to Richards and I haerd somebody shilling for CFL hard, but I couldn’t really tell the voice I thought it might be Barker or somebody else working for CFL. It turns out it was actually Richards himselof telling somebody who a presume work for CFL what a bunch of “great guys, great personalities, great game etc etc etc” of course the other person agreed fully. I don’t think it was Barker, but it could have been. But when the host sounds like an excited infomercial host, that’s not good.

Brady taking up for Atlanta as a sports city is an interesting discussion. Saying the Thrashers never had a playoff series win & were horrible managed and talks about a bit of our hypocrisy of being critical of the fans not showing but than having a dozen thousand people at a Jays game, it was a good and interesting talk. I think Brady morning show is really having a good flow of opinion, talk and fun.

I think Richards needs to have co-host. I know he is a good broadcaster but something is missing from his show. Again, I think TSN in there dinosaur mentality is making Richards push CFL like crazy because they have the TV rights. They are so focused on properties they carry only , really dissappointing to me. I really had high hopes for TSN radio.

I understand that the CFL is TSN’s second most valuable property and they’re going to start plugging the hell out of it as the season gets closer but nothing makes me change the dial back to the Fan quicker than another Jim Barker appearance.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
