Classic moment on 1050.

Brian Burke clip: “i apologize to the fans.”

Cybulski: “brian burke leaves as GM unapologetically.”

just getting caught up on last week’s PTS.

Bob accuses Cope of conspiring to get Burke fired because, according to Bob, Cope thinks he knows something about hockey and doesn’t like Burke.

Question: why would the rest of the board go along with Cope?

Bob (and Brunt) seemed really convinced that this was a Bell move. But it just seems really implausible that Rogers would just go along with Bell without anything more than Cope’s supposed dislike for Burke. It just doesn’t pass the sniff test.

Put me in the camp of people who think this is just Bob looking to rip the competition.

As someone mentioned in the other post, sounds like The Fan has dropped Rumack again, and is going for CBS Sports Radio for overnights now.

I think Sportsnet 590 The Fan did drop Stormin Norman. His name and bio are off the website. They kept the other overnight/fill in hosts Rob Wong Ben Ennis and Roger “The Survivor” Lajoie. Picking up Leaf games and adding pre and post shows with Ric Nattress and Gord Stellick probably caused the shuffle. I would think this is it for Rumack.

Cybulski is an idiot. Still waiting for a competent replacement…

That’s a tough one. I guess Lajoie. Used to e a Stormin Norman fan back in the mid 90/. Guy just doesn’t have it anymore. Faraway was terrible. Mike Richards is pretty damn awful I know he’s not on the list. How does TSN keep that guy he’s garbage and one of the worst morning show hosts in Toronto.

Part of the deal with Bell and Rogers is that they ell always vote as a bloc on bard issues. Each have two seats on the six-seat board, meaning whatever the communications giants have agreed to, before they ever get to the boardroom, will always carry the day. If Cope wanted Burke out, he would have had to eat Rogers to agree to the move befor it could happen. So this could have been a Bell (Cope) instigated move. But Rogers was certainly in agreement. That may explain the timing of the decision. It may have taken this long for Cope to get Rogers to agree. But when they did, the axe fell and there was nothing Burke, Anselmi, Tanenbaum or Lastman could do about it. Adios Burke.

Economics, folks. In order to establish some kind of foothold, CBS Is practically giving away its sports programming to radio stations looking forms cheap alternative to actually having to pay people to go on the air and provide some semblance of local content/ interest. It’s probably here for awhile until either CBS decides its sports radio programming has value or until 590 decides they value an audience. Either way, it’s a lousy way to treat your listeners, not to mention your employees.

I would probably have to go with Lajoie………..I can tolerate him in small doses but whenever I hear Rumack or Farraway I turn to another station immediately……………I can’t remember the last weeknight or weekend host on 590 that I really enjoy listening to

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
