Cue the dramatic music! Is there a new host? Did one of us have a life altering event? You'll have to listen to find out. We kick off this show with look at the Whitecaps win in Houston, and how it bodes for their season. Lots of changes in the NFL with the dawn of free agency and the official end of the Legion of Boom in Seattle, plus the return of a legendary golfer to relevance.
Here comes the plot twist - we have reached out to the mainstream sports media we talk so often about. What brought it on, and did we get a response? Of course we talk a little hockey, with the Canucks marching towards the end of the season, and looking towards the final few games and off-season. There are other local hockey teams in playoff action, and we encourage you to check them out. All this plus our best and worst in Garbage Time!

Who likes alliteration? It's technically a small non-structural, non-displaced fracture of the transverse process, and while broken butts aren't funny, we like to think we are. This week's show includes some possible future show ideas and surveys, which may or may not be appropriate, but we also talk some sports. The Whitecaps kicked off their season with a win, but is this team any better than last years? Can they ever compete with the front office and ownership group currently in place?
In Canucks land, with Boeser being done for the year, we look at some of the auditions and tough decisions facing the team over the next month. Should the Sedins be brought back? Who can the team trade to make room on the roster for prospects? Interesting times ahead for the Benning regime. Good thing the media is supportive. Right?

Cool out everybody, we're here to make sense of the sports world for you. Lots to cover in this show, from the end of the Olympics to the NHL Trade Deadline to Geoff's ongoing recovery from Vegas. We start off with his review of the Golden Knights experience before getting into the real stuff, including a recap of the PyeongChang games and a final look at how the Canadian athletes fared. We talk a little Whitecaps, as they kick off their season with a bunch of new faces, and then we get into the Canucks. We break down the trade deadline, some very accurate comments from a Toronto reporter, and look at what the next month may bring for the team. All this plus some sweet segues and Garbage Time!

It's a valid question on a variety of topics this week. The contract extension of Erik Gudbranson? The choice of Willie Desjardins as coach for Team Canada at the Olympics? Another Canada/USA finals in women's hockey? We cover it all, as we reflect on the past few days of the Olympics, including the ups and downs for Canadian athletes. We dive into all things Canucks, with a look into some future decisions involving some prospects, as well as some player comparisons and expectations. All this and some shout outs, plus a special Garbage Time!

Not only did they listen to the Premier Vancouver sports podcast, but they also listened to all of you who have posted and been vocal in support of where Jim Benning is leading this franchise. We believe the vast majority of fans are in agreement this was the right move for the future of the Vancouver Canucks. In this episode, we discuss everything Canucks, along with Canada’s great start to the Winter Olympics and a messed up situation in the NBA. All this and more, plus Garbage Time!

Does this mean all podcasts are Tide commercials? No, but if Superbowl is good for anything, it's memorable commercials. We kick off this show with a look back at one of the greatest NFL Championship games ever played, featuring a ridiculous amount of offence, and an MVP performance from a backup who could be traded this off-season.
In case you forgot, the Winter Olympics are starting soon, and we look forward to what Canada may accomplish, as well as the lack of excitement and financial opportunities for athletes headed to Pyeongchang.
With the Canucks, we begin to wonder what this month's trade deadline will bring for the team, and if certain teams are on the no-trade list for management. We also question the treatment of two of the team's younger players, and the different standards they are being held to. Is there an unfair hypocrisy happening here? All this plus our usual best and worst in Garbage Time!

A big thanks to everyone who listens and comments on our show! We love hearing from you (good and bad), and look forward to more! We start off this week with a serious topic in the Larry Nassar saga and the role the justice system and sports organizations play in situations like this.
On to more fun things, as it's Superbowl week, so we look forward to the game and make our peerless predictions. Will we agree with a game predicting bear? Will there be more pole greasing in Philly?
Of course we get into hockey, including NHL All Star weekend and it's meaning in the grand scheme of the sport. We talk about the emergence of Brock Boeser on the league-wide stage, and some decisions the Canucks are facing in the next few weeks. Who should stay and who should go? All this plus a little Steve McQueen in Garbage Time!

Are we talking about ourselves? Are we talking about the Canucks? Maybe a little bit of both. We kick off with a look at the NFL playoffs, as the Suberbowl is set after a somewhat unforeseen conference championship weekend, plus a brief look at the Australian Open and the current state of tennis. Canucks talk has us playing the "What If?" game, as we look at potential draft happenings and the accuracy of Geoff's Six Year Theory. What do you think of it? All this plus a solid movie reference and comedic gold in Garbage Time!

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?
