Every now and then I tune in to a show that I have already decided sucks, with the hope that there might be something decent to listen to or a new host.

Unfortunately I am usually disappointed and today is no exception. Tried a few minutes of Bryan Hayes on TSNR. This guy projects a confidence he should hardly feel. His tone is of someone who is well respected and established rather than the 2nd rate hack that he really is. The poor man’s JIm Rome shtick is irritating and just doesn’t work for me. He uses terms such as ‘tendies’ to describe goalies and fruit to describe goals and assists. Are you kidding, guy?! Even the actual players themselves don’t use rinky dink terms like that.

Stay in your lane, dork. It’s not cool talking like you know more or have experienced more than you actually have. Even worse than that, your on air presence prevents me from listening when I can’t find something better.

I have asked this many, many times but is TSNR ever going to have any quality daytime programming?

Guess I’m still hoping.

“He uses terms such as ‘tendies’ to describe goalies and fruit to describe goals and assists”.

Wow, that is just eye-roll material.

I get annoyed enough when Bob calls them the Rap-a-tors. “Fruit”?????WTF?

TSN may know television, but they are light years away from SN for radio, despite what our buddy Kamlesh thinks!

Hayes once referred to Evan Longoria as “manning the three bag” for the Rays. Who the fuck talks that way?

I think his content is decent, though he tends to straddle the fence too much. But i agree that his delivery really needs some work. He is trying way too hard to sound a certain way (Rome is the right comparison) and it really detracts from the quality of his show.

I’m glad I got that off my chest because your comments gave me a good chuckle!

“manning the three bag”

Great Alt-rock band name!

I think Bryan Hayes is still at the stage where maybe he should be doing evenings/weekends, and isn’t quite ready for something like 12-4. (Then again neither is Scott MacArthur – Or Cybulski in my opinion).

Yeah, it’s funny, Itchy. Most of Sportsnet’s ‘star’ personalities seem to be on radio, and all of TSNs are on TV. Even the fact that TSN puts Jamie McClennan on the noon show (instead of Dreger/Mackenzie etc) while The Fan puts on Kypreos AND Maclean. Sportsnet just puts a higher priority on radio I guess. TSN certainly has better personalities on their highlight shows.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
