Hogan: Argos duo survives bye week adventure

Professional football players are used to being graded for their on-field performances. Two members of the Toronto Argonauts are happy their recent off-field exploits weren't under the same scrutiny. Kicker Swayze Waters and rookie long snapper Jake Reinhart took advantage of the recent bye week to explore the great outdoors. The trip was a resounding success, but at the same time it was almost worthy of the film 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles.' ...more

Hogan: Time for excuses is over for Argos

Injuries. Schedule. Practice facilities. All have been talked about as being detrimental to the Toronto Argonauts over the first 10 games this CFL season, but talk has become cheap, and it's time for the team to move on. TSN 1050 Argos insider Mike Hogan has more. ...more

Hogan: Owens return should pay immediate dividends

Back on July 12th, in a game against the Calgary Stampeders, Chad Owens was returning a punt. As he cut across the field he was tackled by a pair of Stamps, who fell on Owens. The weight of the two players bent back his foot, causing the discomfort. On Saturday, Owens returns to the field as the Argos take on the Eskimos. Mike Hogan of TSN Radio 1050 has more. ...more

Hogan: Argos playing the waiting game with injuries

It's the football equivalent of a hockey team losing its entire blue line. The first six players at one position are injured, and now it's a case of next man up. For the Toronto Argonauts, it's the receiving corps that has been decimated by injuries. Mike Hogan of TSN Radio 1050 has more. ...more

Hogan: Toronto's Gabriel makes first CFL start in Argos opener

As a kid he'd watch from the upper deck of Rogers Centre, back in the days when fans were allowed to sit in that area. Saturday afternoon Jermaine Gabriel will make his first CFL start far, far below those nosebleed seats. ...more

Hogan: Kackert decision leaves Argos' starting RB spot open

A running back is like a city bus. If you miss one, just wait five more minutes and another will come along. It's a rather harsh maxim but the Toronto Argonauts are hoping that's the case because Chad Kackert has been forced to step away from his starting job after breaking his lower leg last season. As Mike Hogan of TSN Radio 1050 Toronto explains, replacing a back of his talent will not, despite the adage, be easy. ...more

Hogan: No QB controversy for Argonauts

When it comes to the most important position on the field, the Toronto Argonauts are in a very good place. Future Hall of Famer Ricky Ray is in his prime and back for a third season in double blue. The 34-year old was magnificent in 2013, throwing for just under 2,900 yards despite missing eight games, tossing an impressive 21 touchdowns against just two interceptions, completing 66 per cent of his passes in the process. ...more

Hogan: Argos look at labour dispute from different angles

One is a legend in the CFL. The other is in his first pro training camp. For Ricky Ray and Anthony Coombs, the connection they share is more than just playing on the offensive side of the ball; more than just wearing the same double-blue uniform. They are brothers -- union brothers. TSN Radio 1050's Mike Hogan has more. ...more

Hogan: Emry looking to take leadership role with Argos

It could be a two-for-one bargain. When the Toronto Argonauts signed Shea Emry to a free agent deal in February, they did so expecting him to be an impact player on the field. As Mike Hogan of TSN Radio 1050 writes, there's another intangible he hopes to provide; leadership. ...more
