    I stopped listening a while back. I'm happier now :)

    This goes along with no newspapers or news channels. Life is wayyyyy better!

    I still have a few online places that I have to decide on yet though.

    What if we lose Sbisa?!!!!

    I heard one guy say he isn’t perfect defensively all the time!

    I don’t like the new format for Jets post game show with Kevin O- not letting many local callers thru- has these so called experts. I like to hear from the fans.

    Those same "fans" that called in for years and years suggesting we trade Slater + Antropov for Jonathan Toews?

    90% of the callers were absolutely brutal... They either need to screen their callers or get rid of them....Seems they have chosen the 2nd option

    P
    Im with you on this one. Post game call in shows are probably the worst job in sports media.

    Listening to Munz carry water for Maurice’s Niku comment just caused my head to explode.

    Funny how he’s changed his mind on splitting Wheeler and Scheifele.

    ____________________________________

    Some callers are brutal, but many are quite interesting with former hockey players calling in, as well as hearing Trevor Kidd who'd been an NHL goalie -- I find interesting.

    I also like to see how the general public is feeling about the Coach, and how the club is being run.

    I agree with one poster above --bring back Rick Ralph --I thought he was pretty good.

    Yeah. Great comment. I have a hard time understanding their arguments here. Maurice is quoted as saying that Niku is playing well, so he should stay down in the AHL (sic), yet the other day they brought up Spacek because he was "playing so well." This radio show will never delve too deeply into those sorts of issues however. Munz and other guest experts will all spew the party line. Very little objectivity or independence and that's too bad.

    I will say that I liked Westwood disagreeing with Toth yesterday on the whole Don Cherry issue. Listening to Toth try and rationalize and defend Cherry's comments was uncomfortable and devoid of any arguments or sense.

    The stuff about how they like what Niku's doing with the Moose and they like how things are going on the Jets so there's no urgency to call him up?

    eeeewoooookaaaaaay, I guess.

    I'm glad they like what Niku is doing. I wish they didn't like what Sbisa's doing quite so much. Show me a good coach and I'll show you a good goalie, or two covers it I guess.

    I have a friend, a casual fan, who was at the Avs game. He will probably never go to another Jets game. Apart from goaltending, the Jets have mostly played like **** this season. Not entirely, but mostly. There is a price to be paid for that.

    yeah hearing Munz on Niku this morning was aggravating. So far this year (according to Mo's explanations), we've had a guy brought up a month into the season "because he had a great training camp and needs to be rewarded" even though he hadn't done much since camp. We've had a guy brought up because he has been doing well in the AHL so far. And, we've had a guy sent down to the AHL...and play well...and apparently needs to play well in the AHL for a full season before he's considered ready. Niku needs to gain "consistency." What does that mean? Because I'm pretty sure there's some vets this season who could use some time in the AHL to gain consistency too if that's how it goes...

    I'm telling you Maurice doesn't like long hair , he probably told Niku to cut it and Niku said no way , it'll make my mustache stick out too much then . :naughty:

    They brought up Spacek because he was playing well, but that was because they needed to call up a forward, not because someone else was being taken out of the lineup for their play. Slight difference.

    Toth and Westwood should stay away from anything political.

    It's puzzling at best. He's consistently been their best player for 3 years.
