Some of the guests had logical reasons for being on so i’m not going to complain too bitterly but I always start tuning out when Scott Moore shows up.

Oh and BOO on Damien for cutting Bob off when he was trying to dig deeper on the new Jays unis for next year. I did enjoy the story (that I never heard) about Gillick being wooed by Ted Turner in the early ’80s though.

I wa off building a deck so I missed bobs return, but I’m sure he didn’t ask the big thinkers why jays fans should continue to go to games when they are 10 back at the all star break and already planning for 2012??

If people want to complain about another appearance by Scott Moore on PTS they won’t get an argument from me……………but if you are complaining about having Beeston on the day after Alomar & Gillick are inducted in the Hall of Fame I have a hard time agreeing with you

In past years during the summer on PTS we have been subjected to guys like Toth, Millard, Faulds, and Shannon……………this year we are getting a heavy dose of Blair, Stellick, Cox, and Grange…………………it’s not perfect but I will take this year over previous years any day

Mike S. true though if I have to hear Cox, guest host and Grange going on about Twitter again I swear i’ll throw my radio against the wall.

Otherwise this is miles beyond what we had last summer.

I just wanted it in the record that I tuned out also when Moore came on PTS.

I promise I am not shilling and it’s by no means a perfect show, but I have switched to Cybulski on TSN full time now. I found him annoying when he went from reporting to a Sports Centre fill in co-host, but I gained respect during the NCAA tournament. I think he does a great job on radio, he brings the best out in guests and co-hosts.

I much prefer that show to McCown and his sour and “I’m such as dialed-in big shot” attitude. (I don’t miss the talk about vegas and gambling and his personal life) I can’t stand Cox any more. I could handle him with Stellick in small doses, I just can’t listen when he’s on PTS. So it’s too bad Brunt can’t come back to 1050 again, I miss his perspective and he is being pulled down by the others on PTS. Listening to PTS makes me feel either angry or old or both – I am 50, I don’t need either. Listening to those guys make me feel old. They remind me of my dad listening to Jim hunt whine in the early 1970’s and how annoying and negative he was. Cybulski and Co at least have a younger perspective and no sour old man attitude. (He knows far more about sports than McCown – I wish they would ban discussion about MMA though…)

Mike S – Great points – The fact the FAN found Millard and Toth to be suitable fill-in’s for Mccown said all I needed to know and chased me away a long time ago. Now when listen I am very unimpressed (see my earlier post)

@Chris F

“I did enjoy the story (that I never heard) about Gillick being wooed by Ted Turner in the early ’80s though.”

It’s the third time I’ve heard McCowan tell that story, and everytime he tell’s it he says “I don’t think I’ve ever shared this story about what a consensus builder Pat Gillick, but one time he pulled me into an office…..yadda yadda yadda..”

And every time he tells it, i’m like man you’ve already told this story about how you stopped Pat Gillick from going to Atlanta, and he always tells it when there is a different host, and they are always amazed by it.

I don’t know if it’s just me, but it feels like he’s starting to repeat the story’s, before you know it, he will be the Jim “Shakey” Hunt of the show, but more crotchety!

I was listening to TSN Radio last night, and made the same observation that I have since they came on the air; they sound like they are in a tunnel.

I’m not sure what the technical terms is, but to the Steve from Waterloo, is sounds amateur. Not sure if it is the engineering, the studio, or if it is done on purpose.

I just wanted to tell someone, hopefully someone from TSN lurks here, that the station, at least in Waterloo, sounds like the boys are hamming it up in someone’s basement.

Plus, could you boost the signal a little bit please!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
