Bro Jake is asking people to send him "The Champ" ideas.

He referred to studio as the out of control room.

He and Pratt are cringe worthy at almost all points.

I've been talking to my kids in the car instead of listening.

Now like that is like the epitome like of like boredom.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Here's an idea for him, Kill off the Champ, that schtick got boring after the second time I heard it.

I change the channel whenever that shit comes on.

A couple of thoughts on the new Bro show in the morning:

I don't mind Jake...has a decent speaking voice and is pretty mellow.

Pratt is insufferable, as usual. "the new CBA is killing the NHL middle class". LOL Also..."I really believe..." as if it makes his point more valid because he prefaces it with "I really believe".

Is there a way we can banish that botchford moron from representing Vancouver in any public forum? Can we employ Brian Burke's lawyers for a gag order or something?
That friggin guy along with the rest of those clowns gallon gagger, leatherpants, Dan Russell and sundry red noses are giving the greatest city in Canada a bad rap. Is there no one out there who can carry the torch for guys like Jim Robson....can we get him out of retirement? Is he dead? Perhaps no one would notice if we stood his corpse up in front of a camera?

FfS botch turd, in what universe did you think we wanted a mental picture of Thornton wanking after a four goal night???

Seriously stupid

Botchford just let the entire NHL fanbase know what we have all known for years. What a fucking idiot . A complete and utter tool . Good luck getting any decent soundbites from anyone you sawed off little troll.

Dumb move by Botchford but by that same token, can we honestly blame him?

Given that he's a part of the media and given that we're talking about him, one could argue that he succeeded with flying colors by publicising it.

I can't stand Bothford, but in this case, I have to respect him for reporting it.

How many times have jokes been made about Daniel and Henrik and been reported through the media? Nobody cares and they all get a laugh out of it.

If anyone should be thanking Botchford it is Hertl and the SJ Sharks organization for taking unnecessary negative attention away from a great goal and placing it on a veteran like Joe, who can handle it.

That's a good point.

Mike Milbury flat out called the twins, "Thelma and Louise" a few years ago and the media's from Calgary, Edmonton, and Toronto openly supported those comments.

This whole thing is just another media fueled debate. They seem to be the only ones getting up in arms about any of it. I doubt Thornton even gives a shit. I doubt many players throughout the league even give a shit. I doubt this really changes anything in terms of the player-media relationship as a whole. Sure, Botchford might get told to screw off by a few players, but let's be honest...the less of him we hear the better.

How did this all happen, why did Bro leave Classic rock and Pratt come back to 1040?

If Pratt and Taylor pass in the hall who would win?

You guys are so lucky, I would love to listen to sports talk all day at work. I have to listen to 3 different classic rock stations in Kelowna that play the same songs every day but all 3 have different formats. It so fuckin g boring at work listening to the same thing every day, it's like ground hog day.

JOVO - PLAY THIS ON YOUR WORK COMPUTER. BETTER THAN LISTENING TO 'HOTEL CALIFORNIA' ON YOUR CLASSIC ROCK STATION (EVEN THOUGH I LIKE THE EAGLES).

I have stopped listening to the morning show, it is now traffic, CBC or nothing.

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.
I wonder if they'll disallow the whole game because of the distinct ass-kicking motion the Canucks used on the Kings? - Brian CC
