GDB 62: Oilers gone Wild

sick_oilersBrownlee's sick as a dog, I'm sick as a dog, and it seems like the Oil are sick as dogs -- they're certainly playing that way. Meanwhile, Wanye's internet access has vanished and it took me way too long to update the scores and standings on the site. Things havent't been kosher, my darling Nationeers.

Wouldn't it be something else if the Oilers actually went wild against Minnesota? Yes. How likely is it? I don't know. I'm still holding out hope that we're all stuck in some sort of cruel nightmare, and when we wake up there'll be a parade on Jasper Ave involving a certain cup with a certain name be hoisted by the players from a certain hockey team. You know, ours.

So here's what I want to see tonight: I want to see our boys actually bodycheck the opposition. I want to see decent play resulting in many shots on net, which will logically result in several goals more than the Wild. I want to see a WIN. Is that too much to ask? I don't think so. Willis has suggested that, at least on paper, the Oilers aren't a god-awful team. So let's actually win this one, yeah?

Pass the Neo-Citron.

Bingofuel is the handsome cyborg who pulls all the levers behind the curtains of the OilersNation. When he isn't running the site, he's plugged into a wall socket, recharging. Or Brownlee and Wanye are playing "keep away" with him. He gets little to no respect.

W.T, suggests maybe Fred and Bryan could get together for some Tony Roma ribs and Fred could get some tips from Bryan Seen this in background - Ched to possibly lose the Oil and head over to the team - astral presently holds rights to Habs - major changes to morning show, with Bob upgraded to play by play - Ched actually loses money on the property “oil” and relies on this to boost its ratings and advertising share throughout the day… The worst Bob can say now is that they have to play better - that is a pharm approved statement, but why get hung up on one individual - when he left the team.. people in the office were thinking the sky was falling and now the drive show has grown from this…. how about Gregor providing play by play for the esks - since he is the only host providing a dedicated football show…… I listen to the audio vault on ched just for amusement to see how Dan T defends the oil in the…….. what would the PD’s stance be - conform like Ched or allow hosts to keep independent thought…. Gregor has been trying to get to Ched for a long time, Fred did not recomend him for his job. Also Fred has said that MacT has to be blamed for the Oilers so he does not defend MacT like he used to but he does walk with a big stick since he “Hid in the bushes” to talk to Katz, and Katz does like him.

Stauffer works for Rexall Sports not Ched - his non reference is a wash - as long as Ched holds the rights Gregor is challenged - a reversal of bot oil and esks to astral is needed - a true sports station - I think people have annointed Bob without reason - carte blanche when the fact is Morley Scott is on a two year paid holiday.

Reddick you lying piece of garbage. I have never once talked to anyone at CHED. I have ZERO interest to go there. You are such a f-ing loser to just make up crap on the Internet. I’ve said it many times you are a fraud, and a liar. Your life must be pretty disappointing to have to make up crap about others. I have never spoke to anyone at CHED about going there, nor do I have any interest. Just letting everyone know again, what a FRAUD, LIAR and overall LOSER you are.

it appears that gregor is happy where he is - on all a sports station where he is respected, quoted and should be considered for the esks if the rights go to astral - otherwise any information that redick is posting seems to be in harming the goodwill of JAG - and hurtful

DO: Keep up the good work, sir:)

When I watched the game last night I thought about the possibility of four Can teams making the playoffs and which announcer will call which games.

Hughson and Simpson will take whomever the CBC believes is in for the longest haul; either Mtl or Cgy.

Bob Cole will take the loser of the battle.

The Canucks will get Mark Lee

The Oilers will get Dean Brown.

I've said this for a long time and maybe there's something contractual that blocks it but what stops the CBC from a short-term hiring of a really good TV crew from one of the Can teams that Don't make the playoffs?

Now, perhaps say Dean Brown has it in his contract that he can't be passed over by out-of-network talent and that would make a lot of sense. maybe gregor or brownlee can confirm something like this?

CBC ****** up large when they let Cuthbert walk. Lee's their 11:30 guy and he's awful. He's got a strong voice and he knows when to raise it but his phraseology is awful, he doesn't understand line-matching and he doesn't know the league well enough.

B-Rad, I wouldn't leave because of some dork's false accusations, I can guarantee that. I don't have a thin skin at all. I've stated I enjoy a good debate and witty cut downs. Criticism is part of the job and I welcome it, but flat out lies are BS. I just wnat to remind people don't believe anything you read from him regarding me. He knows no one. He is a fraud, and if he has an opinion on a game that is fine, but when it comes to anything about my work he knows squat. I have no interest in leaving where I'm at.

CBC doesn't have exclusive rights to Canadian teams anymore. It is like a draft now. CBC gets the first two picks, and obviously they will take two series involving Canadian teams. Then TSN gets the 3rd choice and if their are three teams in the West, and MON in the East that will guarantee that TSN gets a Canadian team.

CBC gets the 4th pick and I'm pretty sure TSN gets 5th and I think the 8th choice. I am 100% certain that TSN gets the 3rd pick, and going on memory I think they get 5th and 8th.

Based on population you would think CBC would take Van and Mon first, unless there is a CGY/EDM match up. If the three Western teams aren't playing one another you hope TSN picks the Oiler series 3rd, because Cuthbert is way better than Mark Lee.

Hughson is the best. He's just got that golden voice, and of course he reminds me of the good old days of playing EA 2002 with friends.

Jim is perhaps the finest announcer is all of North American sport. Joe Buck and Doc Emmerick are good, but I like Jim more. He is everything that Mark Lee isnt.

And what was CBC thinking hiring a piece of trash like Crawford, a guy who has been named in a lawsuit?

Being named in a lawsuit is the first step in negotation. Many participants do not want this to go to court - namely Bettman and NHLPA - interesting where Crawford sits here - sho covers his legal - as a contractor, he is on his own.... but being the canary... the canucks would be wise to cover his costs and protect him and the code. On the nhl front - I really enjoy Sam Rozen who canadians rately here... who is on westwood one radio.

Jim Hughson is the best - Fort St. John boy too, his first job was at 560 CKNL (pretty lousy country station at the time).

He's got a little bit of Canucks bias, but I'll tell you I was sad when CBC moved him to cover Eastern teams.

Gee, I'm new to this post but found the entire thread very entertaining. First of all, all the best to Ethan and his family.

I must say I have had the pleasure of listening to Bob Stauffer when he was with 1260. I enjoyed his show and all the different guests he would have. I still don't understand why people refer to him as Fred. Any help out there? Then with the move Jason took over. While I'm sure many people enjoy his style I for one do not. I find that he repeats himself too much and he talks way more football than I enjoy. There is something about his voice I also don't enjoy. I have since moved over to 630CHED during the drive home show and I quite enjoy it. I truly believe 1260 lost a good man in Bob and Jason's style doesn't work.

If Hall of Famer Rod is retiring I have heard that Clifford Boostrom may be available. If you have not heard him, he is great. Very similar to the Buffalo announcer. Give him a listen.

Come on jason, like you never tried to get Jamie Nye's job? You would give your left nut to be in Dan Tencers shoes.And now with Hall retiring, and you know squat about hockey, football which seems to be the only sport you know is up your alley, Like you don't have a resume at CHED? they won't call you because they can't stand you, ofcourse you are going to say you don't want to leave. Since you have taken over from Fred your ratings are way down. People would rather listen to Hall in his 1.5hours he gets more listners than you in 3hours. move back to your regular time slot so you can put people to sleep with your boring football talk instead of counting sheep. Fred can't even stand you.

Pokie Reddick - your off base, incorrect and launching a personal attack. Read the following.....and learn...

Ched is a corporate company culture - tow the line or we let you go - as per Stafford with replacement call screener Dan T.

Astral media is more free enterprise - allowing it's personnel to work for themselves - this means a higher pay scale and more freedom of expression.

Hall is retiring but works for Ched who has the rights, it is not a given that Ched will have the rights you low life - if the Esks cross the street - Gregor has markers in terms of show content and commitment - and is working the Rush for bigger and better things to come. As per HDNET - MFC announcer - Mark Cuban is impressed - I believe in Cuban and Gregor while you are at home living with your stepmom and engaged to your cousin.

When was the last BBM book you read - oh you don't know what this - the real story is why no one has taken up the challenge of 9 - 12 full time - Corey is post game and the rest is dead air with ESPN - this shows to me how hard it is to put together a show for three hours with no live guests due to the eastern time zone.

Both Stauffer and Gregor complimented each other while working at the team - if the rights for Oilers go to Astral it will be even better for hockey and the listener. Stauffer was taken to task while away in California for no football - all hockey - it was a day that a few listeners went to town. Gregor supports football and is putting in time with the RUSH and HDNET.

Mark Cuban loves Gregor - we don't know who you are.

Hall has his over 60 demo for three hours with Ched blaring at most senior homes and Gord Whitehead in the background.

Gregor has an under 40 demo for the same amount of time both are contributing in different ways to the sports scene.

I believe if Bob Stauffer knew who you are - he would be against uou. Stauffer and Gregor are collegues - competitive to each other but trusting - we cannot trust you because you speak false truths.

Both Gregor and Bob have a sense of humor - have you senn Gregor's clothes and Bob has the courage to go on television - funny for both.

Now I had to say my peace - as your hateful posts are not wanted here - please leave.

Sabers score in ooooovvvvveeeeerrrrtyyyme. Ok announcer but Rick Jennerette is the biggest hommer in the biz.

Im still a big fan of Just a game. It's funny and doesnt focus on just hockey, hockey, hockey. I just wish Team 1260 had a nightshow, I hate that ESPN shyte. You wanna talk repetitive, during the summer these blowhards talked about the Farve saga non-freaking-stop. You should give the Team a listen after the Oilers games, Corey Graham is doing a pretty good job (and he is allowed to have an opinion!)

@ Pokiee Reddik:

Give it a rest dude. As DeepOil stated the Ched and Team have very different demos. BTW the under 40 demo also tends to come to this site. I also don't know anyone who would rather listen to Hall. No lie. It's one thing to go at JG's opinion but its pretty f**ing rude to go after his job performance or start false rumours. I'm not trying to dissuade you from posting here, I just think it's pretty cool how the columnists on ON interact w/ thier readers.

RONALD - Why do you think they are paying Morley Scott to stay home and have contracted Stauffer to do color - and play by play when Rod is ill or attending family hockey functions ?

Katz is tied to a local talent in his head - hoping that will waive his wand and allow the TEAM personnel to think with their own mind while holding the property and have a great game day presentation - to which Ched is unable to provide due to their political syndicated shows via CORUS.

The team is considering a jump to the fox sports network for more hockey access as ESPN have jumped their rates via the purchase from the rightholders FAN590 - a late night show needs commitment from the program director, on air talent (corey is not committed), sponsors via the show host - where the host buys the time from THE TEAM / ASTRAL such as Stauffer in the past and Just A Game and Pipeline Show. These details are not a concern right now making the Team very LITE in the PM.

This is an opportunity for OILER NATION to have it's own radio show - without the cuss words - really - if Jonathon, Bingofuel, and Wanye want to take this to the next level - start off EXACTLY the Stauffer did with TOTAL HOCKEY..... otherwise we can listen to this ESPN crap for eternity..... maybe someone other than Gregor from the Team raads this column - blog.
