Never has the phrase “methink he doth protest too much” been on display so well as Bob in the first hour of today’s show. WIth his fangs out on this Argos/Grey cup profit/government money, he kept apologozing for doggedly pursuing this story “while not meaning to rain on the Argos victory parade.”

If this is what the animated and engaged Bob is like, I think I prefer the disinterested and lackadasical Bobcat.

Yeah, very odd. especially since he had no issue basking in the Vancouver Olympics….and event totally driven by ripping off the taxpayer! He really does have a CFL pickle up his ass!

Crazy 4pm hour on Cybulski. Had five Argo’s and the Grey Cup in studio. After drinking from the Cup, for some reason players started taking their shirts off and ripped off Cybulski’s shirt. Adriano Belli gave his usual kisses and called Cybul sexy with his November moustache; later someone blew a raspberry on Cybulski’s stomach. Cybulski wondered if they should be playing music by the Village People. Lucky that Yunel Escobar wasn’t in town to hear this show or he might have self-combusted.

I was happy for Mike Hogan after the Grey Cup win. He was my favourite host at the old Fan590, and its nice that he’s in a good place now after getting fired. If hockey comes back and 1050 replaces Dan Patrick during the trade deadline and playoffs, I hope they use Hogan instead of Scott MacArthur.

Simple explanation: He got a free ride during the Vancouver Olympics and partied it up on Rogers’ expense account. He wasn’t invited to the Grey Cup parties since it was on TSN, so he chose to pout about it.

sounds like some hard hitting radio from “c-balls” and the crew.

I actually enjoyed
the 5-6 segment. It was Bob of old but I thought he and Cox should have went
after the Heritage Minister Moore with more follow up questions. They both
admitted later that they still didn’t get all of the answers from Moore. Moore,
being the seasoned politician, was great at dodging some of their

Brunt was very calm and reserved and clearly not as passionate about the issue as Bob was. Even Cox the contrarian was quiet. I think the reporter instincts in both of them decided it was better to lay low and get more information before offering any sort of opinion.
Bob is really going out on a limb on this issue. If the accounting comes out and it’s revealed that all of the money is properly accounted for and legitmately spent, then he looks like fool.
If the accounting proves his instincts right, then he looks great, but by then other news outlets will have picked up on the story.
Unfortunately, right now, he sounds bitter about the success of an event he had no part of and wants to tarnish it.

I agree, Roger, it was classic Business Bob, like an old dog with his bone.

One of Moore’s dodges was to try to get in a couple of times (and was not necessarily challenged) the excuse that “there was no guarantee that either of Mr. Braley’s teams would be there..”. It seemed that he was trying to suggest that Braley was only making money because one of his teams was there. That’s moot – the Argos and committee received $6.5 mil regardless of who was there.

As has been mentioned, when all is accounted for,maybe (maybe!) it will all come out even. I’ve heard the argument about whether or not the governments should have given any money, and I have no problem with it, as they give money to many and varying things, and there was some cultural significance to this event. And the argument that Braley’s a Tory senator, and that’s why he received it (or conversely should not have) doesn’t really wash, because his other team hosted last year and did not get anything (that we know of).

Hosting a Grey Cup is a money maker, and it should be (and that’s why they rotate it as much as possible). I hope for them that they all rake as much as they can. If Mr. Braley made $10 million, good for him. But if one cent of that government money ended up in their/his jeans, that’s what I have a problem with.

Bob said yesterday that he was asked to be on the committee, and declined (to give others an opportunity, big time commitment were two reasons/excuses he gave).

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
