Default Changes to Fan 960 in new year "take that Calgary Puck"

Does anyone have any insight as to what the "take that Calgary Puck" comment on the fan at 1:00 today was about?

They were talking about some changes for the better in the new year which they can't make public right now and finished it with "take that Calgary Puck".

Maybe they are finally ditching Rome and putting some local content instead.

That would be awesome, I did say this a few weeks ago-



"Rome sure isn't popular here (not a fan either).

Surprised the Fan continues to carry him.

Maybe Kirsch should get off his wallet and hire another morning guy for a couple hours. Even Edmonton has that lowdown guy between 10 and noon."

They've hired MrMastodonFarm to replace Rob Kerr on The Big Show.

Yes because all afternoon and most of the morning isn't' enough to cover the Flames. I like Rome and plenty of other people do. Just because people that don't like him are overly vocal doesn't mean they represent everyone.

It's not. More Flames.

"Take that Calgary Puck"... without context that sounds taunting.

Oh god... I hope it doesn't mean more Eric Francis (vomits in mouth a bit).

We haven't seen eye to eye on a lot lately

I am one of what seems to be a minority who likes Eric Francis. Sure he has been known to spitball some rumors but he is also one of the few who say exactly what is on their mind and share their opinion. Whether or not I agree is up for me to decide but I would prefer that than the recycled content most other sports journalists go by.

Speaking of Fan960, what happened to that one guy who was on in the morning show with Boomer and Rhett for a while after Pinder left?

I guarantee that's exactly what it means. He didn't leave his job at the Sun just to sometimes do intermission analysis for Flames broadcasts. He's gonna be getting his own show.

Yeah i was in my truck listening and heard Kirsch say that as well. Kind of cryptic for sure.

Do you have some sort of beef going on with the boss at 960 Bingo?

If you guys screwed up Wills and Lou, I'll lose my mind.

They are fantastic for us who listen online

Nothing like a healthy helping of Spite for Christmas.

I was unaware of our ongoing feud with the Fan960.

Francis doesn't say what's on his mind, he says whatever he thinks will spur the most controversey/get the most clicks on his articles/get the most tweets about his idiotic shock doc takes

Versteegs reaction to him yesterday pretty much covers everything

Jim Rome is annoying, I instantly turn to 770 when I hear his voice. why I think he's annoying?

- he says the same thing over and over and over again. then he smacks you with 3 seconds of dead air to make sure you got his message

- he can't handle criticism or anyone who disagrees with him

- too much basketball

- his voice sounds like fingernails on a chalkboard

I would rather listen to Leafs lunch over Jim friken Rome

I think it's just a shot at the complaining we do in the Fan 960 thread. I don't think it's personal, just a friendly jab.

If there is one thing I trust Brian Elliott about its that you should never piss off Kris Versteeg.

Steeger pulls no punches. Maybe they're hiring him for the Fan?
