Pratt is the biggest idiot, trouble maker, troll, just plain ass, I have ever heard.
I will give credit to Gillis for getting rid of him for a while.
I wish Benning and Linden would do the same right now.
Ya just feel like sluggin the guy in the head. :evil:

I don't mind Pratt these days, used to hate him but he's toned it down since his return. 1040 needs to do something about the afternoon show and All Things 1970's - Don Taylor

Jim Rome, and ilk are fine for about 5 minutes, but do I give a fuck about American sports leagues beyond which ever franchise in whichever league has the national spotlight for 5 minutes.

Nope. News flash, sports is a local pastime.

Canucks lions whitecaps Seahawks blowjays and the NHL.

How much does Jim Rome or Dan Patrick or who ever talk about or have in depth analysis or relevant guests
To do with above list? Exactly.

Therefore, lay off the locals you insult spewfest.

Reading what you have to say vs listening to what Pratt has to say, I get why you don't appreciate Pratt but between the two of you I'm going Pratt every time...

Not knocking your thoughts and opinions, just that I seldom see things the same way you do...

But I would never feel like sluggin you in the head over it...

Take care...

Agree 100%. A few years ago Pratt was absolutely insufferable and got himself fired for his tired bike lane rants. Since he has returned, he has absolutely toned it down. He is extremely gimmicky and a massive flip flopper but at least he has an angle. His opinions are often dumb but he is clearly doing it to generate discussion and that can be very necessary on a 4 hour talk show (especially when you've got cheerleader Bro Jake by your side - thank god they are incorporating Sat more).

Taylor in the other hand has grown beyond brutal. Between his 70s nostalgia and analytics rants he has little left to say. Time to hang them up! As for Moj, never been a fan but I don't like football so am biased. Bmac sadly has been done for awhile. Hope he gets better. And then there is Ryan Henderson who is the perfect producer for that show.... pretty much the embodiment of what the old guys were 30 years ago.... decidedly average!

Thanks for the lecture Father Mulcahey. I guess I shouldn't expect anything different from a guy who thinks the CFL is entertainment. If you read back in the thread a poster was comparing Rome to the local inbreds and I commented on it. You should be turning cartwheels instead of whining at me. Your socialsist govt is about to drive the province into the toilet again.

Botchford is more of a trouble maker than Pratt.

His classic line before he asks an incendiary or leading question is "some people say X," because he can't bring himself to own his own opinions. Some people even say he tries to stir up hysteria in the fan base.

Then again, he's effective at it and has a big following. Just more of a personality than a columnist or reporter.

1040 will be in BIG trouble once 650 gets going, especially if they poach the 1040's talent--like Sat and Sekeres.

As for local versus national content, I used to like when you got a break from the local 24/7 Canucks talk for 3 hours of Rome (pre-1410). With birth of 650, we may well see the death of 1410 and the return of some A+ content to 1040. There is only so much Mitchy Berger, CFL and MLS blather one can take.

I don't think the CFL is entertainment. I know that Canadian Ball is beyond your sycophantic grasp.
What's it like being a barcoded moron ?

Let Jim Rome explain how you are a hanger on.

What if the CFL became a developmental league for the NFL? Each team would have 3-4 affiliations, and play NFL rules?!

BOOOM!!!!

You know, I actually like the CFL. Went to home opener, was a bit sad. The crowd was small, the atmosphere dull, and the product a bit uninspiring. It's too bad, but it's not working in BC.

At one point, the NFL called the CFL a feeder league, good place for their players to develop.
Now they don't.
Too bad. It shows.

PRATT USED TO COME ON HERE AND PASTE HIS WHOLE SHTICK FROM EARLIER IN THE DAY IN CAPS. PARAGRAPHS AND PARAGRAPHS, WORD FOR WORD. DROVE ME CRAZY!! :crazy: :crazy:

Taylor, Blake Price, The Moj... can't stand any of them.

In terms of play by play, after shorthouse, I can only stand Rick Ball who usually does a decent call. Much better than Joey K.
