I enjoy the morning show for what it is. But I also enjoyed Burke smacking them around some the other day.

I heard it late yesterday, but I think it was a repeat of the interview from the same morning. Good stuff on home ice advantage, POs generally, the Vancouver match penalties etc. They pressed him on who the Flames should face and Burke said, and I agree, the team to fear is whoever has the best goalie going in (which he said right now is Dallas and Minnie).

ETA: His comment about their complaining was about them fretting over the Flames goalies, how to prep them and so on. He noted the Flames were a first or second place team and then said the line.

I have never had an issue with the way sports are covered on the local radio. They need to cater to a wide demographic and find balance within the majority of their listening audience and their respective preferences. This is a hockey town so hockey will tend to dominate the bulk of conversation as it does. But covering baseball and CFL and NFL is important and I think they do a good job with the time allotted for each, including present day coverage of spring training. Nothing wrong with that in my view.

I don't care much for skiing myself but for the 15 minute segment they give for their ski report and effective full on advertorial for Lou, I can get by without griping as just because Im not a skiing fan doesn't mean someone else isn't.

As for Jim Rome, I just don't understand his show. It doesn't seem to be a sports program first and foremost, rather, it appears it's a radio version of Springer where some 20 regular listeners just call in and insult one another for 3 hours using inside jokes or slang. Then Rome takes brief pauses in the hatefest to plunk in an interview with an athlete to seemingly justify being placed on sport talk airwaves before heading straight back to promoting hatred amongst his listeners.

I can only assume Jim Rome is popular since he's nation wide and been on for years, so there is clearly an audience for him and I would gather Im in the minority with my views as such. So the fact he's on the air doesn't bother me in the least as obviously the ratings are high enough to justify it and others enjoy him. But from a personal perspective, he's just not for me.

I think my only aversion to Rome is that I'm not a long time listener, so I feel like an outsider when I listen to his show. That and he talks topics in which I'm not particularly interested. And I really dislike the call-in format of his show. A bunch of rehearsed slam poetry in some kind of insider dialect.

Just not my cup of tea.

^ i have a similar take on rome. in general he is knowledgeable and prepared in his interviews. but the pace at which he talks is difficult, and then the clones and bro's that call in - you really need to be long time listener to stay up to date on a lot of the references. personally, i like more local content, or even picking up stuff from the fan in TO as filler.
