No matter what they do Jake is useless in the morning and needs to go.

When he came to Rock 101 I stopped listening. I thought "this guy is an idiot, I bet vancouverites love him" and they did.

Oooh "the champ", it's soo funny! Lol!

Maybe if you're 5 years old.

Holy fuck . Tune in to Walter Matheau and Jack Lemmon for some real laughs on the TEAM right now. Christ these guys are hilarious. If you don't believe them just ask them. Taylor and B Mac are THE funniest men on the planet. We are so blessed to have two men like this gracing the Vancouver airwaves. Far and away the most knowledgable , most hilarious and cutting edge sports dudes. It's like Bob Costas, Vin Scully, Danny Gallivan, Robin Williams and Dennis Leary all rolled into one and X 2.

I try not to listen lately because of the losers at that station. It's usually music and DP or Jim Rome. I tuned in because of the twins being signed and I get treated to these two cum guzzlers giggling, laughing and jerking each other off for 30 minutes. I love good humor but these cats just aren't fucking funny..... not even a little. And there is very little sports talk outside of the 604 which would be fine if they actually knew fuck all about the local teams.

Get these assholes along with Jeff Patterson and Brother Jerk the fuck off the air and put on Lalji, Powell and Gary Mason. Find more work for Dan Murphy and Rick Ball but please lose the losers.

B Mac alone is fine. Taylor is an aquired taste. Kind of agree about the lack of on air talent though. Bring back Al Davidson , Neil Macrae, JP Mcconnell, John Mackeachie, Barry Houlihan, Howie Meeker, Chris Hebb, Dave Hodge, and Gene Kinisky .

Hey 1040 - Jake still sucks and I still aint listening longer than 5 minutes with him on in the morning.

How bad is it when traffic all the time is better than your morning crew.

Have you listened to B Mac and Taylor ? They are even worse than Jake and Pratt.

Not even close. B Mac is great and Taylor is fine by me as well. But those morning dudes....are dreadful. I can barely stand to listen to Pratt...actually I don't anymore..

I don't know, I'll probably be flamed for saying it, but I like Taylor. I grew up watching UTV Sports Page and every time I hear him I'm reminded of that.

Some people probably find mimes and ventriloquists hilarious too.

Actually, I find Taylor tired and obnoxious now. In particular when paired with Barry MacDonald. I too grew up watching the boys of Sports Page, and thoroughly enjoyed the local talent reporting the local teams. But that was then, and this is now. The old boys club of that era have dominated the local AM radio the past several years to ad nauseum.

Morning show: impossible to listen. Jake knows SFA about sports, and Pratt's schtick is beyond obvious/old.
Sekeres/Price: Price is a loser and Sekeres' voice, in particurer, needs to pull the clothes peg off his nose
B-Mac/Taylor: I enjoy their Ferarro segments, but without a guest on, they enjoy themselves a little too much.
B-Mac/Gallagher: I just don't care about Gallagher whatsoever. Never have, never will. But for whatever reason, he gets a whole lotta love from the boys club.
Paterson: iiiiiih-uuuuuuuuuuuh, but-uuuh-ya-know....

Am I missing any one? Didn't think so.

CBC, 90's at noon (which isn't even the whole hour anymore), 980/1130 for local news and a whole lotta Songza dominate my ears. 1040 at the deadline, and July 1st if I got nothing better to do, that's about it.
