The Lions and the bush league CFL suck, poor showing in the seats

The Whitecaps and the MLS are thriving, fans are showing up to games, great product

Yet the local sports media old school Vic Rapper CFL campaigners refuse to get excited about the Caps and continue to talk about the CFL like we care.

I personally don't care about any of it other than hockey and some NFL but welcome any local sports talk on a local sports talk radio channel. One issue I have is when they pipe in US talk radio and get away from local coverage.

I'm curious how many people actually listen to that crap when it's on...

Good for you, your back in the saddle again. I'm happy for you really,I'm a fan. You are a west coast dude in an eastern dominated bastard filled business and I always cheered for you. But Dave you are an arrogant asshole and that has always been your problem. Back in the saddle again? Great, you should never have left to begin with, I'll bet your new contract is either for what you were offered or for less than what you turned down in the first place.
As much as I like your on air personality you are an idiot, with just a little humility you could own this town, but instead you struggle to reach past your own sense of yourself and a ham fisted attempt at originality.

This whole cap lock thing is a case in point. You stroll in here with some sense of entitlement, knowing full well that cap locks are a major faux pas and you revel in it like your the new abrasive schlock jock. but sadly arrogant bad taste has been done to death by more famous sports journalists than you.

If you spent any time on this site other than to parachute in your bullshit, you'ld realise that the level of intelligence and the connection to the source is better by far than the pablum your radio stations have ever served up. If you were a true sorts journalist you would realise that this site and others like it are not your followers but are increasingly The Story.

Here's a thought, you hate Burke like the rest of us, his lawsuit is a joke, it started in part on this very website and there are people here who are part of the story- INSTEAD OF SHOWING UP ONCE EVERY SIX MONTHS TO POUND YOUR KEYBOARD, why don't you act like a fucking sports journalist?

Anyway,

Congratulations on the new job dave, try not to fuck it up this time eh?

In my view, there is more to life than individual autonomy. Systemic issues are real. Hence my argument that SNP is part of the problem even if they provide reasonable coverage.

With that being said, some responsibility lies on the players and management to tune out the hacks. But, I can't agree that it is merely a choice as to whether duplicitous suggestion can undermine your confidence.

Furthermore, hockey media aren't exactly Pulitzer material, I'm completely fine with a reasonable standard of professionalism and respect for the craft mixed with a small dose of support for the home team. I'd call it: mature journalism.
IMO, the intensity of the general conversation surrounding this issue can't be high enough. It comes from a burning disdain towards the general level of acceptance re: the media machine, Mondi.

I'm not a libertarian of any stripe that you're thinking of - I'm simply a proponent of good old fashioned free thought.

Free thinking is an active endeavour, and the majority are getting lazy. That's resulted in an epic greasy slide right down into the swamplands for most information outlets, because they know they won't get challenged on anything.

I bolded what I did above because you're right - they are real. But the real question is - what is going to be done about this problem? How is it going to change? Until the consumers demand something different, the answer is: it won't.

In case there's a misunderstanding: I'm not upset with you or your suggestions. I understand what your point is, and I even agree with most of it in principle. I think I even agree that it likely affects the performance of the team in some immeasurable sort of metric. But the concerns you're raising just won't be heard anymore, because these hawks don't care. They're not concerned in the slightest about the aspirations you're addressing here.

I suppose we can't forget that players are for the most part still young and impressionable, and mangement needs to ensure that the players are enlightened, but if there's anything an NHL'er of any brain capacity can understand, it's motivation.

In a market like this one, it's critical that they grasp that "media" is a highly calculated precison apparatus that is motivated by money and power, and has had nearly every ounce of humanism and integrity sucked out of it long ago; the age of whatever journalism you're looking for - mature or otherwise - is nowhere to be seen in mainstream mediums, Mondi. I don't think we'll see such a thing in our lifetime.

Beautiful post...

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

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