    I'm surprised Marinaro was able to fit the Markov situation within his usual wall-to-wall soccer coverage.

    I had the same reaction as you did -- why is Marinaro so adamant about Markov? It's as if he had a bone to pick with the guy. I don't know what his motivation is but his grandstanding rings hollow.

    McKenna is the worst one for me. He had some tweet about a month ago after Lernout wasnt signed saying something to the effect of “we could have had Brayden Point.....but we move on and learn from our mistakes”

    I responded pointing out that it’s easy to draft in retrospect and 28 other GMs would take Point knowing what they know now.....

    He takes any criticism very poorly

    This morning was the first time I've tuned into Tony's show for quite some time since I figured with little to no Habs news it would be lots of soccer talk which I have zero interest in. I only tuned in this morning because I saw Cowan's tweet saying he was gonna be on with Tony this morning to discuss his Markov interview.

    It was an interesting chat with Cowan pretty much siding with Markov and other players and Tony sticking up for his good buddy Marc. I found it a bit funny when Tony said that I don't always side with the Canadiens and after a bit of a pause repeated it again. Since about 3 or 4 months before Subban was traded Tony has pretty much sided with Habs management ever since and rarely rips the Habs like he did before he started the Subban will be traded campaign with Nilan. Tony Marinaro the person who isn't afraid to call anyone out according to his TSN690 promo but once he gets called out tucks his tail between his legs and leaves HF and blocks people on twitter.

    The Marco guy who called in this morning though was probably the most entertaining thing I heard on the show this morning. :)

    That Marco guy wasn’t talking, he was barking out words. :laugh:

    He sounded like someone you don’t want to mess with so Tony retreated very carefully and thought better of it enough to qualify him as a “good caller” after Tony had hung up on him. :laugh:

    I subscribe to the same argument you do — Tony has pretty much sided with the Habs since he got charmed by Marc’s biceps in-studio.

    Marinaro ... he just keeps getting more and more strange.

    An oddity from this past week: Marinaro asking his co-hosts how he should handle his 16-year old son who wants to get pierced for earrings and who has pestered him about this over the last few years.

    Marinaro explains that his son's motivation is to emulate a look like those soccer players he has exposed his son to.

    This is what happens when you don't stick to hockey, Marinaro. :D

    Is there a reason Tony is still playing 'Gloria' to open his show? Did he lose a bet or something? It seems like ages ago that St. Louis won the Cup and, nothing wrong with the song, but it seems like the novelty is well past its best-before date.

    Is there a reason for Tony?

    He’s a Umberto Tozzi fan, the original composer of Gloria. Might be a reason he likes the song.

    Oh Jeez, Tony now singing with Louis from Ville Mercier. We have reached rock bottom.

    At times like these, in the dead of summer, I’d enjoy an experienced host like Randy Tieman who easily connected with his listeners and never sounded smug or pompous. Now, it’s just rank amateurs with a bad sense of humour or with poor communication skills that bore the **** out of you with their irritating schtick.

    It’s been nice taking a break from 690 for the summer. Being a baseball fan makes it easy to forget about hockey for a few month.

    Pretty much what summers in Montreal have become.

    Is there another street they can close for yet another “festival?”

    91.9 Sports FM is gearing up for their new season as their regulars will return and they announced some new collaborators. Lapierre, Theodore, and Talbot will join them this year

    Also very interesting, they will now air 7 days of live radio. They were Monday to Friday before and the weekends was a compilation of the week's broadcasts. Only Laval Rocket games were live on the weekends.

    I'm an occasional listener but like anything else, you gotta choose your spots.



    It's time to tune off when the likes of Reggie Tremblay, Pierre Rinfret, Vince Cauchon make appearances.

    Also, José Theodore wasn't all that impressive on TVA Spanre, he has trouble expressing his thoughts and halts mid-sentence to move on to something else. Benoît Brunet is a snooze fest of hockey clichés.

    Pretty much agree here. There are segments I ignore, as well.

    One positive seems to be no more Yvon Pedneault.

    True enough, hadn't noticed Pedneault wasn't on the list. He's been long in the tooth for quite some time.

    Lol, if that’s all he’s good for, his career has definitely run out — as if any further confirmation were needed.

    He’s trying too hard.

    “What’s going on in the 450? We got a call from the MTL. Whazz going on, my man? Hey, free coffee!”

    Really saddened to learn the plight of Derek Aucoin, ex-Expo pitcher and a broadcaster at 98.5FM:



    I wish him the best of luck. He's been on everyone's mind, on the French media side -- heard many good wishes for him throughout the day.

    I've listened to his late night radio show many times and he always came across as a gentleman. Hang tough, Derek.

    I just can't listen to them. Some are okay but in the end i prefer TSN690 and NHL on Sirius.....they actually have great guests instead of Tremblay, Machabee and french only players. Normally i get mad after 10 minutes of listening to 91.9
