David Amber – CBC Reporter covering 2014 FIFA World Cup

David joins the program live from Brazil to discuss the final weekend of the World Cup, including Sunday’s Final between Argentina-Germany as well as the less popular 3rd place game on Saturday.

Hour 2 of Macko and Cauz picks up the Kyle Lowry press conference and the guys are joined by Jeff Veillette. Hour 2 Audio

Hour 3:

Hour 3 of Macko and Cauz, joined by the Raptors General Manager Masai Ujiri. Hour 3 Audio


Steve Simmons – Toronto Sun

Steve Simmons discusses the Leafs assistant coaches and their future. He talks about hiring assistants from within the organization, but does not know whether or not the assistant coach will be able to work with Randy Carlyle. He says the Leafs are building the right way, but only because they got fortunate and lucky with their draft picks and trades. Next, Steve examines the salary cap in the NHL and how the Canadian teams strongly affect it due to the Canadian dollar. He says clearing cap space is something that many teams push in order to pursue All-Star players, the Leafs included, but unlike the NBA it is not as effective in the NHL.

Jeff Veillette – TheLeafsNation.com

If the Leafs are in fact going to promote assistant coaches from within – it seems like it will be King and Dineen from the Marlies. The Leafs seem committed to bringing in some players from the Marlies – and Carter Ashton and Sam Carrick seem like good options if the coaching staff continues with this path. Surprisingly there haven’t been any moves that the Leafs have made this off-season that have been really questionable moves – so no one will say they hit a home run in the off-season but no one will criticize them for making major mistakes.

Masai Ujiri – Toronto Raptors GM

The Raptors are looking for winners to build this team around – and Lowry understands what is important at this point in his career. He has a mentality and has reached a maturity level that has allowed him to take the next step. The Raptors have to create a winning culture if they want to be able to compete and grow as an organization. The team has to be patient and let the players grow if they are going to reach an elite level – they are going to reach these levels with proper development rather than with big splashes.

Dave Feschuk – Toronto Star

Feschuk joined the show to chat a little on his experiences in Brazil for the 2014 World Cup.

The Jays are in a position of weakness due to Anthopoulos not taking action in making any moves when he had the chance to.

Jesse Spector – National Baseball Writer: Sporting News

Spector joins the show to chat Jays and other news regarding the MLB. He believes that Baltimore is a team that has the ability to stay on top of the AL East. He weighed in on Mike Trout and other players of this "celebrity" status on how their popularity has an impact on baseball and how the MLB markets them.

Tom Haberstroh – ESPN.com

With a lot of speculation as to where LeBron might end up next season, Tom Haberstroh joins the show to discuss the issue. He states that he doesn't see LeBron going to Cleveland, Lebron wants to win championships and he will not be able to do so right away if he goes to Cleveland. "The entire world of sports is waiting for LeBron's decision" Haberstroh says, and he could be waiting this out because he enjoys the power. Haberstroh truly believes that Miami is the best place for a chance at another title for LeBron next season.

Justin Bourne – TheScore.com

Justin joins the show to chat on the NHL free agency. He weighs in on how many great European players don't get looked at like some of the Canadian players that are severely overpaid. Teams such as Chicago might hope for the salary cap to sky rocket in order to be able to resign their stars Toews and Kane to the big contracts they're worth. Justin also weighs in on if Subban is captain material and if the C on the jersey even reflects the leadership in the dressing room and on the ice.

Jason deVos – TSN Soccer Analyst

DeVos joins the show to discuss the World Cup and states right off the bat that he believes the final four teams deserve to be there. He also stated that the gap between the elite and non-elite countries is narrowing and proving to be very entertaining for the sport. With Brazil missing some key players, DeVos says that they do have their work cut out for them today against Germany. DeVos thinks it’s hard to believe that these World Cup games are fixed and that the officials are bribed in any way despite the visible shady dives.
