    Agreed. Just not realistic.

    He chalks it up to ADD or whatever. The fact is, he's a self-centered jerk. He can be lucid and insightful as long as it's a topic that interests HIM, otherwise he has to derail things with toilet humour.

    I can't see why it's unrealistic. Listen to the team 990 (Montreal installment) if you ever have a chance. These guys are pro. They know their stuff and they are insightful; they're also fun to watch. I will not listen to TGOR as long as JJ is in it.

    Cheers!

    TA

    I do listen to Team 990.

    It's unrealistic to expect that Jerome will get the boot. When he left, they set him up with a remote studio. Then he bailed on the Team after they did that for him. Then the team rolls out the welcome mat when he was out of a job.

    The show would be better without Jim Jerome. It just isn't going to happen.

    I like Jim Jerome as much as I like scabies, crabs and Pierre McGuire.

    My god, what a bunch of whining, humourless killjoys. "Oh no! They don't talk about sports 24 hours a day on Team 1200, and TGOR has the gaul to bring humour to the show and not talk seriously about sports all the time! Nevermind that almost every other morning show out there to give you a laugh on your way to work. Sports and games are super serious!"

    That is how all you torn downs come across. Wing Dang Doodle and whining because bring levity to the morning, especially Jungle Jim. The only reason to listen to sports radio (apart from hockey game broadcasts), and to listen to TGOR is for the non-sports talk, and to hear what Jungle Jim might say. That is it. Whenever he isn't on the show, it is far more boring and sleep inducing. You have 23 other hours of boring, unfunny, uninteresting sports talk; there is nothing wrong with TGOR being a bit off the rails with the three hosts like they have (Jungle being the most amusing of them).

    So get the nail out of your asses and lighten up a bit. It's a sports talk show, the most unimportant kind of radio talk show there is. If you don't want humour in your morning radio show, listen to Steve Madley on CFRA. At least then you'd actually be listening to important discussions.

    Considering that the last post in this thread (before yours) was from about 10 months ago, I think you need to relax, Jimbotron.

    There's tremendous pressure from XM and Serious, so I'm sure they listen to what the demographics say.

    Sorry if that was harsh, Jimbotron. I just thought that your response was disproportionate, considering that this is a fairly stale thread.

    No apology necessary. I knew it was an old thread, but I only came across it today and found the dislike of the TGOR format a bit odd and strange. Everyone came across as uptight and miserable. Hopefully everyone's adjusted to the show and enjoy it now, because it gets quite hilarious from time to time. I hate missing a show.

    TGOR is definitely the best locally-produced show on the Team 1200.

    I don't find TGOR funny at all. It's all lame jakes and the same five people e-mailing the show about stupid Dung.

    If some people like then great, Pierre McGuire is the only good part of that show.

    TGOR is occasionally funny but generally horrible. Lee Versage and Phil are dull as dirt. Steve Lloyd used to be good but now he has become a total jock-sniffer to whomever his co-host is.

    Sens pre-game has gone way downhill.

    Meh, I like most of the shows on the TEAM. Each has their own identity which is good, TGOR gets a little wierd and homo-erotic at times but w/e, I like the Sens pre-game, I like the healthy scratches...

    The same show over and over again would be much duller then any sports call puts out there.

    Why are the low-rent local hacks covering NFL football when there's about 16 hours of programming from the good ole U.S. and A?!?!?

    Jimbotron is the reason I started listening to the show in the first place. Now I listen to it for Jungle Jim and the odd time that Steve starts talking about weird stuff.

    If there was a way to mute Versage I could probably stand it.
