So what station is going to run the games and hockey talk in bc? NW98?
650 am has the games still. They just killed 1410 for American Sportstalk. So now all we get is local guys talking about a horrendous hockey team, a beer league soccer team and a bush league football team in an eight team league. When these Klowns try to talk about other sports or other markets they embarrass themselves.
I have satellite radio and never listen to any stations in the GVA anymore. I don't watch any local television either as I have the internet. I have no need for the local dickwads and their B.S. There's more intelligent life on these sites and blogs than there is on local radio. There's also less intelligent life but I can block or ignore the inbreds. Comes with the territory.

Well it's true Don Taylor's hair was sick but I'd go back to that time gladly had I known
how pathetic our availability to what we are interested in was going to become.
The NHL needed every dollar and I think we here suffered the most, maybe Alberta is not too happy either
but none the less, coverage sucks.
It does affect the PC world too.

Don Taylor needs to move on, he just skims the surface on sports talk, he’s got no passion to dig deep, he needs to get into Entertainment News reporting or something like that. Or open an online blog about all things 1970’s, or all things Seinfeld.

I think I heard today that Brother Jake is retiring or at least leaving 1040.

Good, cannot believe they even brought him in.

He was hired because he brought in big advertising $$ for the team.

Sure he’s a hack but apparently he’s one of the good guys. Give Pratt and Taylor the boot along with Moj

Moj is harmless

also clueless, but he means well

But Pratt and Taylor are annoying 8 days a week. Momma Bingo hated him back when he was on Sportspage

I don’t mind the Moj, he is actually the one trying to drive the relevant sports talk while all Taylor wants to do is talk Seinfeld, celebrity news, Gene Kininski, New Westminster Salmonbellies lacrosse and all things 1970’s. Taylor needs to remove himself from sports talk, he was done when Sports Page went belly up

:lol: Pretty much!

I was a big fan of Taylor growing up but ever since he lost the sportsnet gig, it's clear his time is up.

1040 really dug themselves a hole by not infusing new talent years ago. They finally got it right last year by swapping their prime time slot to Sekeres and Price but feels too little too late. They lost quite a few people to sportsnet 650 and now they're stuck with the old timers. I still like their guests and Sekeres and Price are great but the rest of it is pretty much unlistenable.

I would imagine TSN 1040 radio is trying immensely to get Mr. Linden to agree to an interview.
He wont though.

At some point, one would think he will speak publicly.
Just a small speech, no Q & A.
