Its really quite striking how different he is pre and post-Gillis. I thought he had just gotten older & less bitter somehow...maybe got grounded or something. Now he's back on the warpath.


Let's not forget the gossip about how he lobbied the Aquabros on Gillis' behalf before No-nuts got canned. :wink:

He's always loved the agents. I recall a number of years back when he was touting Brian Lawton, then an agent after his career, as the next great GM. He particularly hates anyone connected to Pat Quinn, he always despised Quinn, so Burke, Nonis, and now Linden are all in his crosshairs.

This article doesn't appear to discuss local media designated for Vancouver games, BUT, who knows, they are faces that we Will be seeing. I'm not sure at this point who SN (Rogers) has identified as being our commentators/broadcasters? Do some of you know? Personally speaking, I'm not keen on some of the re-hires, esp. Glen Healy.

Well Bob Cole is back too. No mention of Jim Hughson. Is he staying on just HNIC? Will he eventually be joining Rogers? Are they negotiating with him to do Vancouver? Or are they simply leaving John & John? That makes the most sense since they already do 100% of the Canucks games anyway. That leafs Hughson to do the Saturday night HNIC games.

Where do you think he gets his "insider" information from? It sure as hell isn't anyone in management... at least, it wasn't until MG got hired. He's also always the first to speak up when a rookie is being treated unfairly by a coach, and not getting enough ice time. Or to defend a players salary demands during arbitration. Again, it's pretty obvious why.

Just a side note would like to see a new Sports Page at 11pm on a local channel here in Vancouver, they'd get all the ratings, sure they'd lose their talent to Sportsnet/TSN, but they'd corner the Vancouver market.

Yeah, looks like just John & John so far.

Yeah, looks like Hughson (with Simpson) will do strictly national broadcasts.

Sportsnet or TSN might yet decide to do a late-night "Pacific" broadcast

.... live from Toronto.

They'll continue on with what their doing, nothing ever coming close to a true Vancouver sports show though, CityTV has a crappy 11pm show on, they could if they got the money to produce a 11pm sports show.

Can someone tell me the logic of TSN1, 2, 3, 4, 5 when four of the channels are showing the same thing?

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I'm just trying to figure out which one would feature ODB. Can you be featured on three channels at once?

I think TSN was put on their heals by the SN hockey deal and they are trying to seem like they are growing and reacting in a positive way. Even if it means they start talking about the WJHC in September.

As for the actual purpose of five feeds...I guess they are just kind of trading places with SN to become the regional station. Whereas SN is now the big national station.

What scares me is that the money and will is in place to have something like 10 all sports channels in Canada, but it is pretty much impossible to get solid unbalanced news from any source and the sources that do exist keep getting cutback and consolidated.
