I’m not trying to mindlessly dump on Shannon, but I’m already cringing at the uninformed questions I’m assuming he’s going to ask Rosenthal, Farrell and Tinish.

I mean, the guy is fine as a hockey/media analyst. Sometimes offers a very interesting perspective on that stuff. But with all due respect, he offers no value as cohost of a show that looks like it’s going to talk about 70% baseball tonight.

just listened to the Amaechi interview from a little while ago … Amaechi is talking about how host cities for the olympics have a responsibility to make good use of the facilities after the games end. Shannon interrupts to say “we’ve all covered games and seen fully packed stadiums but the IOC sections are empty …”

WTF? This had nothing to do with anything at all … it was just Shannon spouting off some nonsense trying to keep up with a smart guest. So embarrassing for all involved.

I like it when guests know the name of the host(s), but rosenthal seemingly does it after every question and, for me, seems kind of phony.

I didnt hear it until this morning, but great segment with jon amache.

Good BBC documentary on an ugly aspect of Euro 2012 host cities.

Gotta say, always love hearing Ken Daniels back on Toronto radio… wish CJCL or CHUM would make more use of him.

@Mike (In Boston) I wondered that too! I was so confused, I thought I missed some context.

Shannon’s biggest problem is that he can’t keep his trap shut. On round tables, its unbearable. The opposite is true of Brunt – only chimes in when spoken to.

Shhhhhhannnon, is probably upset that the Bobcat didn’t ask him to host….”cause you know Bob…” The Shannon knows all……

Shannon reminds of that kid that just read the encyclopedia and then blurts out all the facts he memorized so that he’ll be teacher’s pet. …..Oh Shannon, we used to make fun of you in school, and apparently nothing’s changed…..

oddly, I think Shannon has been good the two times he has been on MVSW with Marek when Wyshsynski is out.

Usually, lots of history and TV talk, so it plays to his strengths.

I think when Shannon is out of his element he feels like he needs to make himself relevant and he tends to say something that ends up making it very obvious that he’s not in his element :\

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
