Been battling a flu bug last few days and down time has had me listening to Toronto Sports Radio.

Not much has changed with the morning shows Mike Richard’s is a complete bore on TSN radio and over at the FAN Brady’s whiny rants makes my head spin and as someone else pointed out here not only did i have no clue what Brady was talking about i don’t think he did either.

With NFL free agency kicking off this week Brian “Bonehead” Hayes has had little to offer NFL fans – fail!

Copy same this week for Jeff Sammut & Rob Wong…probably just as well as both of whom clearly know jack about the NFL anyway, i have found both of these hacks un-listenable no idea how or why they are on the air.

Sam & Ted SUCK! No content no opinion no talent and lame tried to listen and turned them off everytime.

I found 2 positives between the 2 stations…McCown is still good and at TSN Hogan & Tatti appear to have decent chemistry together.

Oh and lest i forget Ric Natress is just atrocious he won’t shut up long enough to let callers and especially his co hosts get a word in.

Anyone else horrified to see Nick Kypreos rubbing lotion on Damian Cox’s head last night on the Leafs broadcast?

I like Sam and Ted/Sim and Tim a lot and think that they are lots of fun to listen to. I’m sure that I am not alone. Chacun a son gout.

@BECKS agree with you regarding Hogan and Tatti…. They are veterans of the sports scene in Toronto lots of stories to tell. McCown is still good esp when he has on Elliotte Friedman, Jeff Marek, Stephen Brunt, and Tim and Sid etc…. Actually if Bob Mackowycz jumped from TSN Radio to join McCown as a co host that would be good to.

Anyone know if Gareth Wheeler is still on TSN Radio??? They have Former Score Radio Program Director Mike Gentile there now Producing and on air on Cybulski & Company?

Gareth is still there. Currently he is off battling ( or hopefully recovering from) cancer. They have kept it on a lower profile…i am not fully clear on any details just small mentions they make here and there.

Sam and Ted are great. I just wish I could hear them more often live. Great chemistry and no phone calls!

March 14, 2012 9:25 pm

Someone tweeted earlier in the week about Wheeler having surgery either yesterday or today.

March 14, 2012 11:14 pm

Sam and Ted are great. Don’t hear new voices in sports radio who are actually good too often.

March 15, 2012 2:21 pm

Meh i don’t see how anyone could possibly like Sam & Ted (Waynes World)?

I was desperate for some sports entertainment and time and again i turned these hacks off.

I guess some folks dig hosts with no content & no talent. Their 3 to 4 hour is an embarassment with absolutely nothing to offer. Compare them to Hogan and Tatti who are pros and light years ahead of these 2 clowns in sports knowledge you get the message.

I also think that some of the Sam & Ted supporters here are their buddies or even Sam & Ted themselves because i have yet to talk to anyone outside of this board who thinks this show has good content and talented hosts, pathetic.

Jeff Marek who is a waaaaay better host and is not being used properly at Sportsnet should be given either the morning show or the 1-4 show.

I am also aware that the same people who hired Sam & Ted are the same idiots who have hired and have put on air such notables as Jeff Lumby, Andrew Krystal, Michael Grange, John Shannon, Damian Cox, Anthony Tetera, Ric “motor mouth” Natress, Jeff Sammutt & Rob Wong. LMFAO

I had never heard of Tim and Sid before the move to the Fan. I like the camaraderie they have. They are also smooth broadcasters, unlike the two idiots in the morning who are constantly stepping all over each other and babbling incoherently.

March 19, 2012 9:00 pm

@Becks Sammut and Wong have both been at the Fan for a while probably both since college, they are under contract and the time slots they give them are not money making times, more just filler. So I don’t see much harm giving them air time. Why not let them develop a little bit and see if they are something down the road.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
