She says not, and we agree... Jim Benning deserves more time. This week we discuss the factors involved in shaping a successful franchise, plus a crazy stat about the average NHL GM lifespan. What do you think the biggest challenge is in building a winner?
We also get into the first tennis major of the year, as the Australian Open has kicked off, and we have a look at how the Canadian talent has fared. Of course we talk NFL playoffs, including two of the craziest games in a long time. All this plus our best and worst in Garbage Time!

If you think this season is bad, just remember the 98-99 Canucks, who finished with 58 points, and were led by immortal players like Bill Muckalt and Murray Baron. In this show, we break down the Canucks at the midway point, who are currently 28th overall. We discuss everything from the player talent and prospects to coaching and the front office, as well as the potential impact of future decisions. Patience is key, and remember, the 98-99 team made the playoffs two years later. So are we destined to improve internally like Winnipeg, or self destruct like Montreal and Edmonton?

We start off 2018 with some advice for trolls (the online kind, not the little dolls), and offer tips for proper trolling technique. Being positive, we continue our theme of looking for ways to improve the atmosphere at Rogers Arena - are toys the answer? For any Canucks fans feeling bad about our current fortunes, maybe have a look at some other Canadian teams at the moment. We shift gears into football, as playoff time is upon us. Of course we dissect the carcass of the Seahawks season, as well as the coaches who got the axe, and our peerless wildcard games predictions. All this plus our usual best and worst in Garbage Time!

In our final episode of 2017, we have decided to be champions for positive change! The atmosphere at Canucks games has been more like a trip to the morgue than a sports event, and our goal for 2018 is to try to change that. Seriously Trevor, it's time to actually 'Make Some Noise' at Rogers Arena. As for the rest of the show, we talk some hockey, both Canucks and World Juniors, as well as everything NFL, including the Seahawks and their bipolar season. All this and more, plus our year end version of Garbage Time!

Matt Ryan helps kick off the platinum episode, with some solid audio captured this past weekend. Before we get into football though, we start off with the rollercoaster week for the Canucks, as injuries and inconsistencies begin to take their toll, but is it time to hit the panic button? That button may be getting hit in Seattle, after the Rams thumped the Seahawks, which could lead to some difficult questions for the team this off-season. All this and more, plus a special Christmas edition of Garbage Time!

You know you've made the big time when the NFL on CBS mentions you, so naturally we return the favour before diving into hockey and the Canucks current challenges, including the loss of two thirds of the top line to injury. We also talk a little baseball, with the reigning National League MVP being traded to the Yankees, as well as the Angels landing a foreign superstar. Crunch time in the NFL is upon us, and we review the Seahawks debacle in Jacksonville, plus the other big games of week, and even a little BC Lions news. All this plus our best and worst in Garbage Time!

What is a Galilean Transformation? Ask an astro physicist for a breakdown, and how it relates to a football play. Lots of topics in this episode, starting with the better-late-than-never IOC ban on Russia for the 2018 Winter Olympics. We dive into the rollercoaster week for the Canucks, with lots of good, as well as some concern. Football continues to reign supreme with the Seahawks big win, and the nightmare of a Monday Night game. All this and some real emotion in Garbage Time.

Like our page? Get a personal shout out from Brendan! If that isn't a prize, we don't know what is. We kick off with the Canucks eastern road trip, arguably the toughest of the season, including slogging through the New York area. Some positives and some negatives, as we reach the quarter point of the season. Grey Cup weekend was another great party, and the game delivered in dramatic fashion, leading to a rant or two by Geoff. We get into the Seahawks win over the 49ers, and how their season could go down the stretch, as well as other notable NFL happenings. All this and a special treat in Garbage Time!

First off, thanks to everyone who has interacted with us on Facebook over the past few weeks. This episode we look back at the week that was, on and off the ice, for the Vancouver Canucks plus their first game of an eastern road trip and what to expect as they play six games in nine nights. A lot of questions were answered in the Seahawks first game without Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor, and we break down the game with the Falcons and all the important games from this past week in the NFL. Geoff also vents on an interesting weekend in the CFL playoffs, and another thrilling installment of Garbage Time.

Sometimes winning isn't always positive, as the Seahawks found out this past week. Another crazy round of NFL action, with more significant injuries, and a couple instances of inexplicable self inflicted wounds. Of course we talk Canucks, as they hit a bump in the road in California, but we remind you it's going to be a long process, so chill out. Novemeber also means CFL playoff action, so we review the semi-final games and Geoff makes his predictions of who goes to the Grey Cup. All this and our usual best and worst in Garbage Time!
