    The TV production has been massively scaled down in order to keep the radio product coherent. You don't need the same amount of staff or production for a static, simulcast radio show that you do for a television show.

    They went from a TV show on TV to now a radio show on TV. Completely different products and completely different productions.

    For alot of his audience that was the appeal.

    I can't listen to hockey pucks yammering on about the same old shit 24/7. Its why Tim & Sid's old podcast was so great, they only talked about hockey when something important happened. Otherwise there was plenty else to discuss. They used to focus a lot on soccer and NFL but since moving to Sportsnet they have fallen in line and now its all Blue Jays and NHL.

    Sid used to crack jokes at Wilner's expense. It was glorious.

    :laugh: Overdrive shames babcock into an interview. Hes on at 4:15-4:20.

    Of course he waits until hes on a mini winning streak before doing it.

    Oh lets add in that dumb tire commercial with the annoying kid asking his dad why they are in the ditch.

    Babs loves to bring up the OV example of how many years it could take, forgetting that OV won the cup playing for his fifth coach.

    Would you rather have as a coach the great Glenn Hanloy or Mike Babcock?

    And it boggles my mind that people still don't get that "Bobcat" wasn't a real guy. He was a creation of Bob McGowan designed to elicit a response from the audience, positive and negative. And it worked...for decades! The ratings bear that out. Now, whether or not "Bob" was a hockey fan, or an arrogant SOB, or whatever...doesn't matter. If "Bobcat" came across that way, it's because that's what McGowan and his various program directors wanted the audience to believe. It's called "building a character." People don't believe Sylvester Stallone is actually a boxer and is dumb as a post just because that's what he does in movies, do they? Of course not. He's acting...and so is (was) Bob.

    So I guess this means Anthony Stewart is out? I thought he was doing ok hope he lands on his feet. If Bournes as good on radio as his stuff for Athletic we’re in for a treat. What a relief to be free of ego Andi!

    Stewart is gone? He was fine IMO. Edit nvm. Still there.

    Bourne is a good addition. Hope he doesn't become hot takey.

    It says in the tweet that Anthony Stewart is still there.

    Do at least a little reading folks.

    Because he was extremely entertaining. I only stopped listening when he brought in that ugly New Yorker.
    Up until then i listened daily.

    Wasn’t familiar with Stewart’s twitter handle, I feel deep shame and will try to do better.

    Talk radio needs to generate talk, insert "Prove me wrong!" meme here. [​IMG]

    This guy instantly has one of the most annoying voices in sports media but I do realize that some of the best things in life are an acquired taste.

    Glad that Stewart is still there, thought Bourne got off to a great start, has a interesting perspective on the game and can express it very well, terrific alternative to Leaf lunch.

    Feschuk is such a moron. GMs are "inept" for needing a few years to do a rebuild just because one expansion team was able to be competitive right away. Almost as stupid as him criticizing Shatkins for not consulting with journalists on how to improve the Jay's.

    Jeff Marek is on Good Show Leafs Hour right now. He is the worst. The whole experience is boring radio 101: preaching to the converted. All they do is agree with each other's opinions throughout. Merak is also filled with false notions from hockey fans and dispels all of them: "This Leafs team is not built like the Chicago Blackhawks, therefore you can't expect them to win like The Blackhawks did". No kidding!!!

    I don't mind the Overdrive group. Noodles, O Dog, Hayes, and Ferraro bring enough balance: Hayes/ODog are Leafs Fans, and Noodles/Ferraro throw a different light on things.

    To many, the media’s purpose is to provide confirmation not information.

    Wait?

    There nothing wrong with going to imright.com to find out what I want to know but more importantly what they want me to know!

    The media informing me of what I need to know is so 1980s boomer!

    Yep. Hes been great as a segment/ fill in and Im excited that he's full time. He should be good with Marek, though, I wouldnt mind him on Good Show.

    Cant help but think this may be the beginning of the end of Stewart ...
