November 15: Show In Review

The Canadian Press

Bob and Matt tee up tonight’s Raptors game versus a Bulls team that may be without the services of Derrick Rose with Chuck Swirsky, Chael Sonnen joins the guys to talk UFC 167 and Michael Landsberg stops by to discuss the Naze Kadri suspension.

Recap:

10:00 - Chuck Swirsky, Radio Voice of the Chicago Bulls:

Refuses to use any of his classic terms from his days calling the Raptors games in Toronto, like “Salami and Cheese” or “Onions Baby Onions” in his works with the Chicago Bulls. With regards to how the Raptors season is shaping up, it’s a difficult situation, especially considering how the college basketball season looks so far, because in between Parker, Wiggins and Randle, there could be more than a few franchise players available in the draft.

10:30 - Chael Sonnen, UFC Light-Heavyweight

Sonnen discussed his thoughts on his upcoming fight with Rashad Evans in UFC 167, his relationship with Michael Landsberg and his thoughts on Rob Ford.





11:00 - Michael Landsberg, Off The Record

Landsberg checked into the show to discuss Nazem Kadri’s suspension, whether or not it was too long, Movember and whether or not Rob Ford should remain as the Mayor.









November 14: Show In Review

The Canadian Press

Bob and Matt are joined in-studio by Dikembe Mutombo and Dave Feschuk and Kevin Allen join the guys to discuss a possible suspension for Nazem Kadri.

Audio:

Hour 1:

Macko and Cauz were joined by Dave Feschuk of the Toronto Star.

Hour 2:

Macko and Cauz were joined by Kevin Allen of USA Today and Seth Everett of FOX Sports.

Hour 3:

Macko and Cauz were joined by NBA Legend Dikembe Mutombo.


Recap:

9:15 - Dave Feschuk, Toronto Star:

It looks like Kadri is deserving of a 2 game suspension, but it’s hard to predict with Brendan Shanahan. The Leafs offence has really dried up, and JVR doesn’t have a point since he’s transitioned to centre. Last night was poor judgment by Kadri, and it is hard to make those calls in the split seconds, but he’s likely to pay for it as he’s a high risk, high reward type player.

10:00 - Kevin Allen, USA Today:

We are still so early into Shanahan’s tenure with the NHL, and once we get used to how he operates, it’ll eventually become more evident. The Flyers can get back in the playoff race only because their division is so porous. But this is a team that has a ton of talent, and for all the people that rip their goaltender, it’s been their top players, Giroux, Hartnell and Mark Streit, who have had terrible starts. With the Olympics, body of work means a lot, but there are instances in which players will make the team by virtue of their past play in the NHL and the Olympics.

10:30 - Seth Everett, FOX Sports:

Ubaldo Jimenez is a guy who’s either super good, or super horrible, and considering the Blue Jays luck, he’d be injured or a terrible pitcher if he signed north of the border. The reason why Tanaka is so highly sought-after is because the posting fee doesn’t count towards the luxury tax, which is why he could be very appealing to teams like the Yankees or the Dodgers.

11:30 - Dikembe Mutombo, NBA Legend:

The NBA legend joined Bob and Matt in studio to discuss his days in Georgetown with the Hoyas, playing with Allen Iverson, his thoughts on Dwight Howard and his involvement with the Special Olympics.

The Canadian Press

Bob and Matt are joined by Howard Eskin to discuss his tweet that the Blue Jays are in talks with the Phillies to trade Jose Bautista and Darren Dreger checks in to react to the Sabres’ management changes.

Audio:

Hour 2:

Hour 3:

Darren Dreger reflects on today's shake up in Buffalo, former New York Giants head coach Jim Fassel talks NFL, & "The News" with Matt Cauz Hour 3 Audio


Recap:

9:15 - Howard Eskin, Fox 29 Philadelphia, WIP Philadelphia

Eskin joined Macko and Cauz to discuss his report last night that the Blue Jays and Phillies were in serious negotiations for Jose Bautista. The Phillies are looking for a right-handed power bat, and Bautista fits the mold of what the team is going for. This deal might not be imminent, and it’s unlikely it happens before the Winter Meetings.

9:30 - Adam Proteau, The Hockey News

The Sabres could be in the midst of a major shakeup, and it’s hard to see Darcy Regier lasting too much longer in Buffalo. David Clarkson is going to be given more of an opportunity on the power play and there’s little doubt that he’ll get it together. Would be very surprising to see the Oilers trade Nail Yakupov. They’ve continually preached patience, and unless the haul is huge, he’ll stay an Oiler.

10:00 - Kris King, Longtime NHLer, Senior VP of Hockey Operations

Discussed the behind the scenes in the NHL’s goal review room, and how decisions get made. His role is to monitor what is going on in the games across all NHL rinks, and admits that at times all the hockey games can become tedious.



10:30 - Wes Walz, Longtime NHLer, FS North Wild Analyst:

Was a highly touted scorer coming out of Junior himself, and Stamkos was able to figure it all out. Expects to see the Leafs play a much better game than they did last time when the Wild visited Toronto. While the Leafs won the game, Darcy Kuemper got lit up. Ryan Suter has been playing a ridiculous number of minutes right now, and they’ll have to cut back his minutes as the season wears on.

11:02 - Darren Dreger, TSN Hockey Analyst:

We shouldn’t be too surprised at today’s shakeup in Buffalo however; several people raised their eyebrows at the Sabres decision to bring back former Jack Adams winner Ted Nolan. Buffalo elected to bring back some familiar faces (Nolan, LaFontaine) into the fold because there is a “sense of familiarity between both parties.” LaFontaine is now left with the difficult task of “picking up the pieces” in order to return this once proud franchise back to elite status. The biggest question for the Sabres is how Nolan will readjust to life in the NHL after a lengthy absence.

11:32 – Jim Fassel, Former Head Coach of the New York Giants:

Fassel looked back at the 2000 Super Bowl, and how one blown call might’ve forever changed his career in Pro Football. He also chatted about Kerry Collins, and how he altered both his personal and physical aspects of his game covering over from Carolina. Re: Incognito – We have to let the investigators do their work. We’ve seen in the past, with Duke lacrosse, with nasty accusations and quick reactions that ultimately were the wrong ones. Looking back on his days with the Giants, between Tiki Barber and Michael Strahan, the veteran leadership with his teams would not have let this situation get that far.





November 12: Show In Review

The Canadian Press

Bob and Matt are joined by James Mirtle who says the Leafs will need Nazem Kadri and James van Riemsdyk to fill the void left by Tyler Bozak and Dave Bolland and former Pro Bowler Isaac Bruce checks in to discuss hazing and locker room culture.

Audio:

Hour 1:

Macko and Cauz were joined by James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail. Hour 1 Audio

Hour 2:

Macko and Cauz were joined by Longtime NFL Tight End and Buccaneers Radio Analyst nthony Becht,A Hockey Abstract’s Rob Vollman and Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press and TSN 1290 Winnipeg. Hour 2 Audio

Hour 3:

Macko and Cauz were joined by former All-Pro receiver Isaac Bruce.


Recap:

9:15 - James Mirtle, Globe and Mail:

How the Leafs survive without Dave Bolland is a conundrum for this team, as you can definitely argue that he’s been the Leafs most effective performer this year. It’s going to require additional efforts from Nazem Kadri and James Van Riemsdyk down the middle, at least until Tyler Bozak can return from his hamstring injury.

10:00 - Anthony Becht, Longtime NFL Tight End, Buccaneers Radio Analyst

NFL players, for the most part, are able to shut out the outside issues in their lives when they get on the field. The Miami Dolphins simply didn’t execute, it’s hard to play in the NFL, but when you go into a workplace, you need to get your mind right, and there are no excuses in pro football. Jay Cutler came back way too early, and people know the healing time for groins, and he beat it by a few weeks. That alone is a cause for concern.

10:20 - Rob Vollman, Hockey Abstract

Before the season, Rob continually asserted that their shooting percentage was bound to come down, and statistically speaking, if their shooting percentage was league average, the team would definitely struggle. When it comes to possession, and playing with the puck, the Leafs are amongst the worst in the NHL, and it’ll catch up to them eventually. Dion Phaneuf has the hardest assignments in the NHL, meaning he plays the toughest minutes against opposition.

10:30 - Gary Lawless, Winnipeg Free Press, TSN 1290 Winnipeg

The right wing for Team Canada is a mess, in addition to Stamkos, Rick Nash has a concussion, and Claude Giroux has been terrible this year. It’s possible you see Corey Perry or Patrick Sharp slide into the top line role alongside Crosby, the role that Stamkos was likely to play.



11:00 - Isaac Bruce, 4 x All-Pro Wide Receiver, 4th All-Time in Receiving Yards

Every play in the NFL has reason to it, and looking back at the Bengals Hail Mary on Sunday, coaches draw up those types of plays, and while they don’t always work out, A.J Green was exactly where he was supposed to be, and the tip drill is a very important aspect of working out with WR’s. There’s no way the Broncos can sit Peyton Manning, he’s as competitive as they come, and he’s not going to willingly sit out a game to rest up. There is a culture in the game of football where hazing and certain rituals are a part of it, and that's what happened in Miami.





November 11: Show In Review

The Canadian Press

Bob and Matt recap the Leafs first game in Boston since their Game 7 collapse with Jonas Siegel and Craig Button and Jeff Goodman joins the show to discuss the competition Andrew Wiggins is facing for next year’s no. 1 overall pick.

Audio:

Hour 1:

Macko and Cauz were joined by TSN 1050 Leaf beat reporter Jonas Siegel. Hour 1 Audio

Hour 2:

Macko and Cauz were joined by James Duthie and ESPN college basketball writer Jeff Goodman. Hour 2 Audio

Hour 3:

Macko and Cauz were joined by Craig Button to discuss whether or not the Oilers have drafted poorly. Hour 3 Audio


Recap:

9:15 - Jonas Siegel, TSN 1050 Leafs Reporter

The Leafs success this year has been built on goaltending, special teams and scoring at opportune times, and those elements didn’t come together on Saturday night. You need to slog out some bad games, and that’s why Carlyle has been preaching a change in the way the Leafs are playing.



10:00 - James Duthie, NHL on TSN

The Oilers signing of Ilya Bryzgalov is a surefire sign of panic. Can he help them? It’s certainly possible, but the media circus around him will create a distraction.





10:30 - Jeff Goodman, ESPN Basketball Insider:

Unlike similarly hyped stars like LeBron James and Kevin Love out of high school, Andrew Wiggins does not have the natural mentality of a killer. Kansas Coach Bill Self will have to adapt to Wiggins's unique personality to get him to dominate each game. Most analysts and fans are on the hype train, but as of now, Goodman would not take Wiggins as the number one pick in next year's draft.

11:00 - Craig Button, TSN Resident Scout and GM:

It’s really hard when you have Kadri on your side, and all the depth the Bruins have on the other side. The Leafs would love to improve upon their defence group, but this is a team, that after Phaneuf, doesn’t really have the depth behind their top guy to go head to head with the NHL’s best night after night. The Oilers need to make a serious examination on their roster, beyond their young stars, it’s slim pickings on that roster, and Bryzgalov won’t remedy their problems by himself.
