Dhaliwal? Rintoul? Are these not Vancouver guys. I'm sure there are others but I don't keep track, don't listen to either radio station regularly.

Well then your opinion is kind of disqualified.

 

I do listen to them regularly and they constantly talk negatively about the organization. If Aquilini is somehow controlling the narrative of sports radio in Vancouver he’s doing a horrible job of it.

 

Also thats one host you named out of like a dozen. They do not hire Vancouver based radio hosts that often. They’re usually castoffs from Toronto or Calgary sports radio.

This is genuinely terrible.  I will be cancelling TSN off my TV package as All I ever watched was for their better personalities and regional coverage.

 

I wish some version of Sports Page came back.

 

650 isn’t very good

650 sucks simply because they employ Andrew Walker. If they were smart they'd immediately pickup some of 1040's talent for their abysmal morning show.

TBH Walker is the primary reason I don't listen to 650.

Disgusting. 

If 1040 was even remotely close to breaking even this should be viewed as a criminal act to shut the station down in the midst of a pandemic after receiving millions in government assistance.

I really enjoyed the morning show and thought Rick found a great spot on the station .  Blake and Matt I found just wanted to pile on too much, but the rivalries btw the shows was funny.  

 

Hope most of these guys find a landing spot

They were the second largest TSN station and mopped up 650 in the ratings here, so I imagine they were doing ok.

Lol I like walker.  Pushes back against fan negativity and drama a lot of times which I appreciate.  Him and Shah are the only two guys I enjoy listening to.  Cybulski ain't bad either

The only thing that's moderately passable on 650 is the pre-game and post-game shows. Sat is alright, but he's shouldered with Walker all the time who is God awful.

 

Rintoul, Reach Deep etc. can't really anchor their own shows. At the very least they should immediately pickup Price, Halford and Brough.

RE The Moj:

I agree the others went at him pretty hard. Seemed quite strange that they would run at him, given they lost B Mac. to depression and worked for the "Lets Talk" company.

I haven't paid attention to sportstalk radio for quite a few years now. How long has BMac been off the air? Anybody know what he's been doing?

What possible rationale can be behind this then?  Bell is alienating most of the hardcore sports fans in the lower mainland with this move.

Thank you. I believe it. This is egregious and disgusting to say the least.

What happened to the Moj? People said earlier that he was ragged on, but what was actually said?

it just just fun humor. He would not think people saying stuff and say something that sounded so wrong and usually it ended back firing on him in a good way.. Like when he said i like take it in the can first lol

Just everyday runs at the guy. Probably took 2 or 3 times the dissing than any other host.
