Both Brady/Walker and Richards shows have Leafs on, but it was clever for 1050 to brand it as “Meet the Leafs”. A nice little idea and Richards has become much funnier in the last year. Finally both morning shows are good.

Kollins knows all the little tricks. I’ve noticed that the update before PTS starts at 3:58, 4:58 so Bob can start at the top of the hour while 1050 is still in commercials or just starting their update. Why hasn’t 1050 changed this?

Great article by KJ. So, Stoeten in baseball, KJ in soccer. I wonder if hockey and basketball have one writer who is clearly above the rest?

The Atlanta Falcons falling to 1-4 can’t be good for ticket sales for the upcoming Toronto Rogers Centre game. In other years, the regular season Toronto opponents for the mediocre Bills have usually looked to be as bad or worse when the schedule was announced in April, yet been surprisingly good and become play off contenders once the season started leading up to the Toronto game, but this year the Falcons have become disappointing losers after being expected to be winners.

Last year’s game against Seattle was the first of the five regular season Bills games in Toronto that had noticeably empty sections at Rogers Centre, despite arguably being the best attraction out of those five years. And before anyone brings up Bob McCown’s disingenuous attempt to claim the entire Toronto series was a huge bust, the other four regular season games did have the stadium filled or very close to it. And Budweiser, Pizza Pizza, etc., are what is known as “sponsors”, Bob. They pay a lot money to Rogers and in return get a lot tickets, most of which they in return give to their customers. It’s how most successful sports events work, including even the Super Bowl. It is not desperately “giving away tickets” to “paper the house”, and it is certainly not just handing out free tickets to university students or anyone who fills out an online survey, like that allegedly professional Toronto football team was doing earlier this year.

This year, the ticket site for the Bills game comes with a complete interactive seating chart that lets you know how many seats are available in each section:

If you’re bored you can add up the seats in each section or you can take my word that there’s 23,485 by my count. So something like 27,000 tickets sold so far.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
