    Last time I listened to 1290 on a regular basis was when Kevin McGowan & Company ruled the airwaves...



    From what all of you have said, I'm not missing much now...;)

    on yesterday's show, Toth said teams have to give fans a months notice if they plan to rest star players for a game so the fans don't waste money on tickets. So...yeah.

    yeah i mean it wasn't like he was saying there is some official rule in place stating that. He was just expressing his position on how things "should" be. But it's a completely irrational position that doesn't make any sort of sense.

    When did he make the shift from being the Bombers broadcaster to company schill, as well as a Jets expert.

    I'm old enough to remember when Mario Lemieux wouldn't even come on roadtrips to Western Canada back in the Jets 1.0 era...

    I did agree that a Vladdy should have played for the Jays in Toronto on Canada day. They knew all along that was going to be a big crowd at home. They could have arranged his days off for him to miss a road game and give their fans their best team.

    I assume this was on context with Kahwi. I know a couple of times a friend of mine, big LeBron fan, went to watch the Cavs and T-Wolves and he "rested" both times. These NBA stars are big draws and I understand some level of frustration when they sit out, especially when it's not an injury and you've travelled pretty far in some cases to see them.

    Ah, I remember going to see the Penguins play the Jets in January 1993, specifically to see Mario play, and he did exactly that and I was quite disappointed. However, that was literally days before his Hodgkin's Lymphoma announcement so I'm sure that was also a factor. It was still a treat to see Jagr play when he was 20 and the Jets came from behind to win 3-2 so I was OK with it in the end.

    yeah but that's life. When you buy a ticket there's no assurance any specific player will be in the line-up.

    I know but I'm saying I can definitely understand the frustration, especially in a superstar driven league like the NBA.

    Resting stars has dissonance with sports being an entertainment business, where people pay to watch best athletes.

    Makes sense for competitive advantage, though.

    Load management should be either better conditioning of athletes, or managed minutes in game.

    oh of course. I can understand the frustration too. I can't understand the expectation that teams should give a month notice before sitting a guy though, lol
