I know Steve Simmons works for TSN, but can’t Rogers let him attend a Jays game in peace?

Shannon is just an embarasment on PTS. Today he says to Warren Moon (paraphrasing)

Shannon: “so how do the Seahawks deal with having Tim Tebow on their roster now?”

Moon: : “when did this happen?”

Shannon ” umm…I thought the Jets let him go…and the Seahawks picked him up….I think”

Just absolutely awful

Take him out of the rink and Shannon is completely lost. It’s truly mind-boggling that he remains in his position on PTS.

Nothing can possibly shock me that is related to Shannon and the misinformation that he spouts on a regular basis. I read about his escapades here all the time as I just can’t listen to him, he is that bad.

The damage that he does to PTS can’t just be measured in the ratings, but in the reputation of the station itself to carry someone so out of his league in the drive slot.

It is bad enough to have Bob who never does his homework and relies on his memory (tricky at best) to recall things and has not adapted to sports with the changing times, but to pair him with Shannon just doesn’t work.

If not for TSN being so hockey-centric, and also CFL too, I just can’t listen to Naylor due to that, but at least can pick my spots, where with Cybulski I avoided it completely.

I know I can’t go back to the short time on PTS when we had Brunt and Arthur as regular co-hosts, but that time period was golden when I could safely leave it on the Fan 590 and know I would be both entertained and informed.

Simply put, anytime shannon is on pts it is just a non-listen.

I just followed Don Kollins on Twitter and sent him the following tweet:

@DonKollins21 Is there any way you can finally get rid of (FOB) Friend of Bob, John Shannon from PTS. You are the PD, how can you keep him?

I fully expect to be Blocked as soon as he checks his Twitter feed, as others have posted to that effect, but I couldn’t care less, at least I let him know what an abomination that Shannon is, and maybe in some small way it will make a difference.

I encourage others to do the same.

Before I get the inevitable block I added the following tweet:

@DonKollins21 Check out and see the comments and judge for yourself. #ShannonMeansChangeStation

At least I gave TSM a shout-out.

Please add me to the list of people that absolutely cannot listen to John Shannon.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
