I categorically deny that allegation!

Largely because if true it certainly is not me.

His on-air personality is atrocious...He treats it like “It’s Boomer’s World...we are just living in it.”

Without Pinder on the morning show, it is being carried by Stephen Brunt, Brian Burke, Elliott Friedman, and Jason La Canfora...Take those guests off the show and you would get better sports insight on AMP Radio.

Boomer has his moments. My issue with him is that he’s a hockey guy not a real sports guy like Pinder, Steinberg, etc. He has nothing to offer in any non-NHL discussion.

Francis' takes remind me of Mike Myers' character in Mystery, Alaska.

In the lineup I heard the new segment would be the Neal and Smith show Ala the Bo show. Where they can read cp threads and bash the posters.Bennett will probably stop by every once and awhile.

I lost pretty much all respect for Pinder in the last 4 months. He's a know it all fraud and a complete joke to me now. I can't stand to listen to him constantly pick things apart like the annoying prick he is. I believe he was canned as the Abbotsford Heat's play by play guy for a reason.

He's a caustic ass-kissing suckup who lacks the intelligence to generate the kind of actual discussional diplomacy that creates captivating conversations. Boomer and Rhett figured out how to push his buttons, which is the only time things would seem real. In the afternoon he repeatedly proves what a doormat Steinberg is.

Will Neault can't enunciate and has analysis void of insight. He was calling for Brodie to be a healthy scratch earlier in the year when he was struggling. Hot take there Bud... really scraping the barrel of the simpleton's storage of easy analysis. He should stick to production and have nothing to do with contributions to the dialogue.

Matt Rose and Peter Klein bring way more to the table than that marble mouth.

Steinberg is just currency. He fills a role but rarely provides actual insightful value.

I've quit listening to them in the morning because it's the same tired schtick. This week Boomer was telling a REPEAT story about him chastising a guy at Costco. How pathetic is it that he can't even come up with NEW Costco experiences... to say nothing about actually sports analysis.

Kerr quit because they wanted him to be an expert in fantasy football. If there's one thing about Francis, who is just an enigma that generates dumb takes that riles people up, its that he went off on Will one morning about how NOBODY CARES about their fantasy football leagues. Yet they talk about them ad nauseam.

I'm fine with keeping Rome because at least he doesn't wade into the moronic depths of discussing his fantasy football league like the afternoon clowns.

This post proves to me how opposite our tastes in radio shows can be and why there will never be a true consensus for quality of programming.

You seem way too invested in the Fan 960.

Peter Klein got the morning show position and they are trying to do a mid day show to get rid of Rome.

Everything about the fan right now is just so mediocre. It's Really hard to get excited about anyone on there. Rhett was good for a while, Pinder was fine to hate on for a couple months, Steinberg was a plucky young guy that you hoped would mature into something more interesting. I listen to brunt of friedman but it's just hard to believe that, in an age where you can tailor talk programming and select from the most interesting and hard working people, their listenership isn't taking a massive hit.
