It's my children could no bull. We are still works great you'll find your. Wasn't that the lights went over the coaches. With a Weisman tried to separate the coaches like Rick said there was talking about some other I don't I am having players. Should say and why it sought I sought the whole thing yet the Ronald. That was earlier this month so I've watched that recently but I can't remember the wind but it critical but it would what's always been notable to me at one point doesn't. The glass. That Lindy used. Leading non doesn't that like Paul. Though it in the I'd I'd I'd feel like there's a moment where he can goal across that he wants to and then he realizes like I'd better. But this could get really can't beat the partition calms down which he's meeting on the yelling and I think it blocked it it just. I think it falls out of there and he sort of stands now is I think he recognizes there's a real escalation. If this is in here and I goal but it did. Speak to us I think I think that that's. What I see happening Arnold a polite number ten years ago tonight. Is Lindsay right. What don't go after our captain. And all. Mean you you should. Should one I hit whoever you can hit. It's a play that happened the divas of rights I mean zone. Targeted right effort right I mean it is now viewed as a dirty play and and it should have been viewed as a dirty play then. My. That's right your your your plane your your play in the few being you know are we think about like every agreement. In that game if Patrick a lot of lights up Danny Heatley the same one that we might objectively years later tell you. Well you know all the the dirty in cleaning it up in targeting and all this stuff like. He like took Daniel Alfredsson. Are 21 out of the public so we just locked. So no I don't you know don't hit our captain I mean that that's just. That's rough I think trying to explain why he put his top guys it's that that's what I think you wanna hit whoever you get an. He knocked it Heatley out of the game not expect out of the game goal or. Mean that's the brutal truth so. I don't know I've never really. It's a dirty hit but the idea that they hit the sabres captain never made it affected me at its viewpoint of the game. You should be playing to win the game like you go out on the next thing I better not hit their best player. That's its course he gets it should get but player you've got a way about. How. Many nights cents. In that building have matched or topped that night I think it's too. I have to give. Ranger game game five of that season. Higher score in this. Three goal late in the max's overtime winner culture of the playoff yes and I would give. Debate Leah would give the reunion night with the points against Philadelphia 2011. Higher status. But some people probably when there's no other team I would have bought that game happens the playoffs including that your three times. Sense. That you know feet right they have been a few times I don't think any other play off even though separate those that they lost their. All games to Ottawa the paper what the two games before that we're all real games against the Rangers. But the deep deep five is by far the most memorable go to the other teams rates 2010 Boston losing series. You know don't know and the Philly series I say no at they won game six front and actually a series and. Home bought gotten that would be different yet noted you know other any other regular season game like what are you what he really talking about I like Alex that fill the finale the where they claim should be easy to overtime declined to David did right in derby at that crazy spent ammo backhand goal that was really cool night and it was. More about. Ownership. And like Britain that the new. The new group taking over and everybody was back members on the forget sitting on the 100 level that night for our show. And just the feeling amongst the fans knowing that all those players were in the building going to be introduced that was a really really cool yeah. That right now I'm almost distracted thinking about what the fiftieth anniversary potential hole they have enough to do something like that. With that many alumni but. Hunting in the regular season game that we talk about you know I was at a team they were down big against Tampa that is that since then. For a one maybe going to the third mixed on Beckett won but I sat there for that. I was on board you know it's not I can't tell you scored the goals which I don't I don't app. Think about that team of course is all it's a 65 win against the the top rival at that time Ottawa. They beat him in the playoffs in 062 top records to division probably. That time saver certainly at the Ottawa finishes only few points behind that your so to top rivals and it's a crazy. High scoring game close game but the role is the reason why it's remember otherwise nobody would Eric tell you was ten years. And two to how much of an extent is that. Is that dead is that happening. Really dead in the league. That the old seven it was a common that you didn't have lots of no big fights in hockey games in 2007 you're at war token flights. One offs but you do not have liked seems like re we grew up with as recently as. Early to mid nineties probably right where you had teams. That. Through three just more guys like everybody just advocate you know certain. Boston games certain whatever it unity you're gonna get ample quite the game you're going to David beat. Shocking I honestly shocking bit ninety's early nineties. Renault team rivalries right. Right Regis. You know you look at the box score the little lineups before the game regulate. And Roberts talked about. About the art robberies talk that you used to do it I used to do this and he says they used to do it in the locker room like that you know when Lugar and to be in Beirut one of those guys on the team in bread would be like I Google first the guy you know all of the to consult Eliza he's gonna flip out. It's yes it's mean that 2007 is of course but should generation. Big time from that. And it's part of the reason it's special is that it was it was rare that wasn't in that's right it is outranks. I think. You know. I saw recently I'm not sure why maybe it was 11 of the anniversaries but the highlights. One of the famous Philly. That we awful brawls. From the our condolences for your in the Austin last year the dog and that's part of being guards Knoll. Recently and they are Kris it's no tweets and with the stick him and all help breaks loose trap law. But that was made in the round of social media a couple of weeks ago. So maybe it was an anniversary for I don't know but. The fact that those teams did that mean awful that we had half a dozen or more teams that were like. You know we talk with a problem out. A team in Italy where it was like that he would escape all the way down to the far end the race go Gary Galley who was locked up with somebody and like he was two miles away she's tired already from all the brawling. We toppled to leave at that a lot awful Ottawa got one game. You know. Anybody else in the ninety's and are operating at their statement that there was never that the cover up all out army it is you know. Phil you have that was that we oh you know so. You've got the boot the the Arab in different. And you've got an opponent that is not known for that sort of game with you. That make it really stand I think and the other coaches are huge part. The affected Wendy's is already by that point. What we use today it is it is the fans the team why it's so well remember yes yes use afterwards he's just he's into it hand hugest. You just want you to law mean. I think. We've talked about is often an office that the reason. That fans get so old man win. Scott Gomez trip Ryan Miller nobody else. Horror. Milan Lucic cartwheels Ryan Miller in the week doesn't. Is the fans want people on the team to fight for each other and I were to that for us but here we look like worse off. We don't wanna be pushed around and I think that's what means do you like that with the community feels like in league east in on the front page when it I memories. Is that he is fighting for. Crashed he's fighting for you and we. Eat that up. I just thinking about. What the sport is without. Because you know. For re like I said earlier today it's a lot just the fighting was never my number one thing about hockey. Watching that I was never going through lineups in the paper pairing guys up. But. When it was the Boston Bruins or the authorities. The 1985. East 67. The they plea meant everything. The sabres were playing that night the tickets to that he deeply times a year by the way it if you it takes effect it's meant everything they were playing. It's O. This gradual or not so gradual. The escalation. Of violence hockey. What has coped with that not all of it but with it is just the almost a total. Elimination. Of team rivalries and maybe I'm quicker to say that because our team has been the last weeks for years. But I think that's right you have traditional rivalries but you have it from players. Players. Two in that brawling. The teams is like. A convincing. Convincing site. That this really is about. A loss in Europe and not just about it matters not just about that were from the original six but like right now. Austin you. And that was a lot of what the hockey so interest thing. Whether I thought about it that way then or not or whether anybody thought about it that way that about what that that a the question is. What is this board without it. What is this more with all that sort of Venus. Between the team. It's now it it should it can. I think it's fully formed yet but me maybe it will get there. No the speed that there are. For all we are rules. Any hockey fan rules of engagement certainly below our age that remember. You know the eighties and and just this this energy that you got from these different aspects of the game that are sort of dissipated. There's much viral is as I'll give Gary Bettman for talking about what different things about the game that are good but the game the team has never been asked. But the skill in the team up up and down lineup really the attrition of the designated fighter or. 24 guys talk about parade Barbie may not the temporary decrease those guys work. Members of the team and all the roles but. You just have. More and more speed. And what they have to really behind me is a way to me that into. Entertainment. Because the games never been past I I I talk about speed all the time. He watched the sabres play the Canadians and your second best team on the ice and economic quotes. Even with Jack Michael won two. And you just need to happen. More that can do that wouldn't really mean fallen to his cheeks and popped out of the government welcomed around the port isn't open to get a shot on goal. But that speed needs to be freed up to play. And demonstrate the skill along with the speed and. It's just you're not gonna get the same. Jam audited as he did when. I will square off and just rolled aimed at her speech up there but. That the whole for the game to me is. Skill. But that's what it has to be. That is what it has to be if that's what it. Largely is but he's a futuristic enough right. This way. You two for two enough people not not often enough but article things sorted out my head just how oh. Hockey crew and what is it exactly the media grow but. Not being somebody that Reeves the violence. IE was in love with the B I was at while with the Boston. There was so there was so much of it it at the personalities are so many differences and also I think the players to Wear helmets so they were. It was easier to view what do with people like him. They also just to make fifty times more money every year that you did or 500 times whatever the all these things. Lead us to now it there's no feeling. Back at you view that well I do think even even with now. That. If people want violence what do you do without without the book brawl. I think we're on the cost all through tapping back in the that you mention a few minutes ago the sabres beam where they pin is a big part. Hand. Ads today and this year is this particular poll I think dismantle hoping to maybe start to generate this. But there have been moments particularly against Ronald. That have had that. Top three likable but I've got I've got the pieces in place. And its tail. And it's surely it should happen why I want the Toronto too cute go. And you know I didn't want them to be were only four points as of today out of me. The deputy in the heat that particularly but. What ever. That's different these two teams. With their young players are gonna be playing in the few for ten years. I think they're they're going to be going to beat them both going to be good it's it's hard to say that after. A year where the sabres didn't take that jump that many people are you probably expected to I still think they're both going to be good. And dealt these other adjectives that come with that I don't predict you get line brothels are you that kind of stuff but there will be moments in the games that will be talked about. Can somebody did this or that it sets up an off what it will be the camp and skill in those guys just line up and why IV which got. We've gotten the lenders on both teams you naturally. I've got Michael late got Matthews I've got. Right RT monitor and like. Yeah okay fine or the all you want with email or Twitter about which guys are better right now they're all gonna be really good players in the image. And the teams are really fully formed. And I think it's going to be courts are really do what it feels to me like we were about where we were just been no lock up. Ran into buildings that happen but before they got good in 0506 which of course was the precursor to that rivalry with Ottawa. We wondered what is it we're gonna happen for us again with hockey who accuse it ever going to be electric in there again. And I would say like we just needs a little like the fumes and all Fargo six but it I didn't see it coming but it came pretty late and it went all applicable. I think that could happen again I think were what a year to wave from that went off and I think it's going to be towards. Funny to think about what this anniversary as the catalyst for that because 2007 was not. As I've settle which talked about this already but it was not a year and era. For that its board CDs you might thirty years ago whatever happened thirty years go to my neighbors' history that he would be more fitting whatever laws might be. No pity for this kind of conversation but is it's gotten it's gotten really expensive again end. I want action at at a probably not getting you know. With what you said. You know multi. I've probably not getting. The extent at least of those. Rock those rivalries with other teams that each reed for other teams. Hit it free agency you know place in the that what he has a lot to do with that but right. 07 Ottawa the I used to say I never really got into Ottawa. I never did either what it ended I postal wasn't I never saw Ottawa because. I was too old for a it's a really like so it would be like that riot at that. Like the Ottawa senators' big Ryan I don't know Ryan like maybe their most hated team because you're. Fifteen years old when and it beat who they beat an awful lot during that time ya that you below six and write this in 07. So I don't know rights they're an Ottawa might be like a serious rival the rival the sabres rivals people of that age. I would say that's the word. Or Carol I know was really I really heated Carolina for awhile after a 506. Watched. It's all died down I don't even really see the sabres having any big rival anymore because it's all died so much. And a lot of that is losing that as the losing and losing now may apparently I went out and not but I think it'll it will channel it'll ever be. What the eighties or early nineties were because you're just not gonna have that physical but no one until I. I know it's gonna speak I don't speak you know spirit Jack Michael. I I doubt and it could be immediately because it. Like those two teams the teams that face our plane. Are gonna Matt law office and when we're emotionally invested. The game will become memorable. And for different reasons than that but it'll never get the Los don't like people like someone wrongs you physically yeah and then. You guys were spotted in what we all came. You know ever reach showed up but there is no denying at whatever age your involve public if you get together with guys Peters edited that. On. The throws he got he got done talking about that they play the pilot of that. And except about the box it's not part of the game anymore upon it is. On brake light. That's true. Eagle 30550. Ten years ago the role against Ottawa the team then prior then and now. Much Opel got a text tonight in Cheektowaga back after the update on WG yard. Oh yeah war remember just ED our very hammer throw and are strengthening quickly from a lot of footage there aren't worth. That's the way that it was felt prepared her house. Justin Daly who would have been. Ten years ago sabres and senators the all bad. Now keep banks under. 8030550. For your reflections on that. You also heard in sports that reportedly. Tyrod Taylor has been cleared cleared to be cut. I if if these it's helping you know if he's being retained their picking up his contract. They don't need him to. Passed a physical by now but they will lead him to pass a physical if they are to release him. What's the right answer this. If that now you've got Ian Rapoport you've got to go beyond us tomorrow by the way out you've got this. Perhaps growing speculation that Taylor will state. If so. What's stopping the bills from announcing. Tonight. Will be their reason if it's true. Unless they're still looking at Phil Purcell. That could be one reason why they wouldn't but. The longer it goes on to it is important to be aggressive and appearances are important in this and the longer it goes on. The more it it feels and we'll feel like they don't want them they just like right so if you want. To go with them. Why week. I don't think there is a good. Explanation for why. Is why not. Good enough resident of of an answer like that there's always going to be. Why wait why not just announce the next guy goes we'll wideout Lee you have the time what do you have the time where if he breaks his leg or lower our eleventh. BO OK or warn if something changes somewhere in the week. But do you just somewhat someone that would be a better option becomes habit like you may right now think there's no way that you're giving Tony role. I don't but let's not that change between now and march 11 and you committed to Taylor. Right you'd be stuck right. But that's not that's we've been talking about last few days. That's not committee and all of a threat that's settling for a book so it if you. That's why don't because it could answer for why you don't just say he's a quarter. Because you view you if you're waiting. I'm convinced you're waiting for something better to walk ons. I don't know if there's any other reason to wake you wanna be free just in case that that's right. I mean in my son missing some very obvious. Reason that is is not presenting itself Emilia I don't know what else you'd be waiting for. Other than taking the time because you can't and if you're taking the time because you can't it's because you might wanna do something else. So why should just take its Cain. But with they necessarily wait until the deadline on every player just in case they get hurt. Just in case. Somebody else comes available probably not you know I don't know the answer that X literally guys end up being him. This situation where. You go couple wants your season that you decide what you want on your team right. Certainly doubt this degree of like a roster bonus right this much money allotted out earlier this important advantages and Ramon Humber. Your ball over the way. They announced that Mike is on WGR go ahead Mike. Big I think her and we. Sure you I just I was looking your program. And you know. I was that is rivalry wise what you have to be competitive and have a primary you know yes readout. That you guys are talking about I'm I was ten years you would not coaches in Phnom. With Ottawa and I didn't like or can't we get out the and that sock and then. Carolina. On eighteen. It's dead hurt me. Bed because they live in Carolina at this time. In there are selling tickets for 20 dollars at the Eastern Conference finals I it. At least 35 people in my and my house. We assumed that man. Actually arrived in light down it tickets and it was machine because. People Carolina will care about hockey. You know I would agree robbery we had a lot of resentment. And they all thought that. The people at my thinking was for wrongly. Or outside the and when their immunity in the way had her meeting. There's so locals worried directly. On their public. Really Carolina. The lead they don't know. You know also. That's I gotta say it but I appreciate. And things you let me out. Pitcher Mike you know I was down there for game five of one of my favorite moments during that trip with Jeremy White and some fans on the bus trip wrought by the station. Was pulling in to the parking lot at Carolinas arena. Before game five beautiful warm sunny day. And receivers and a guy out by the row right is the boss was pulling into the facility. A guy out by the road and sabres Jersey holding a sign up that it forwards on. Is it the race. A contender for miles five favorite crappy sports time that it is that the Rory saga. If you gotta be good it helps if your good. That was a part of that extensive commentary about where where we sit right now I think we're we're gonna see in the next three years that the team to have to be. Otherwise you're just you're not invested in it you know mean. They're they're been memorable plays in memorable goals. That have happened in that building since 2007. Like I'm sure it. But I don't I can't sit here recall Levy because they weren't that mean this turns out right. Covered the anticipation. For those teams but for the team and it's too it just sort of you're building a base. Value of what you care about public you go about your opponent. We're not even doing any of that now right react to any of that is just it is your fault it is sold march futures sold the sold want edginess. And that edgy this brings an attentiveness that you could remember. Everything that happens often like to me injuring those days during the team's of course and then even like right and what it like after. Where when you were with. Bands it will play whatever it is we get that stuff is all just that's what sports when it's added it's match to me. Gives you is it just gives you like. I just throw random details. And when you don't have any meaning to the game there's no anticipation for the no editing is there's no. Often stunts like all turn TV on and watch them watch in this definitely Colorado. Same thing when your team doesn't matter your body that's been at that. Jim is next on WG Arco did you. Thank you guys. I. Briefly. But I tradition out on the Tyrod Taylor withholding their views about whether or not. I admit I didn't even ticket holder I'm Bulldog. Well are much hotter heads back to old G-8. And finally here. I'm really really on the fence as to whether I'm gonna renew or not and the quarterback is really the deciding factor for me. And not make it all before the march 1 deadline day here renewal I find quite offensive. It. If they re signed Tyrod I bet personally it meaning they're still trying to make the playoffs and still trying. You know use the good players they have yet. And make a rot but it caught up. And I get to rebuild. And we got another three years minimum we might make the playoffs yet. You defeated pick up all the wanna know that before march 1 I think he'll be doing a great disservice to all but especially guys like he. Who Stanley have been loyal season ticket holders and what it means that. You know by not disclosing what they're gonna do it they've got plenty of time. Or. So march 1 is that is the season ticket deadline for renewal what happens if you don't review by march 1. Route. Then I then I would not maybe not necessarily all on March 1 but it. Somewhere if if someone else buys you tickets to bite my ticket that I can't get him back and then. The point the point also is that bad of a mop and you know that you couldn't a couple of years you wanna I get your start all over brilliant stuff. The guy I know that feeling well if I do realize that deadline but not the hockey fans what you went through that for. Many years already idea and something cause I've bargain. I can't. All popped into my authorities battle. For one in the off. That's coming right. It's tough I just think but it got it got six days maybe they'll figure out. CI I I like knowing that it might note that maybe that will become part of my analysis here at the march 1 season ticket that like that is. I I just don't think I think one thing here Jim is this caller. Jim can say I eat Tyrod Taylor back to believe that the bills and I think that I stayed behind him invoke it light at the bank. Is speaking I eat Tyrod Taylor gone but it will be for the bills. If if they don't putt Tyrod Taylor is going to be a long time or make the playoffs I didn't make it with them I think it's that down the middle now it's that even. Not even with respect comedy fans feel one way or the other but just it's a close. I don't think that there is one move here or the other that's necessarily better for fans. And in turn. That's why I that this this please feel like it's really complicated for me were I think he should have. But Taylor but it's not like I would see them winning the Super Bowl with him eight and beat I think it's too late. For the bills to show that they really want to do that. So now horrified I don't want about the team anymore because I think he deserves. Better that he deserves. So one who's gonna really loved him. So I mean anything and with season tickets that wants to weigh in on that Alec which is better for you. They keep them and try again or not I would Beatrice it was that I really don't think of the fan base being solidly on one side or the other. You know I I think. I think that's that's that's right it's always been close and the reason to me like when it's close like that that that I'm I'm gonna expect that I've got. Pretty close to a split amongst the pants on what to do. And anything maybe the united biggest what do they. I would bet the vast majority of fans all that the majority of fans more than now. Would like to see them keep trying to win whether that's what Taylor or somebody else in the fan that's out there that the Steelers not the answer still might want Jay Cutler. For example because. I don't and I've blown this up but I can't blow it up like that back from beyond the guy in the in the bank going. None of these are good ideas including the guy you have. And what are we doing here. Because I feel like I'm gonna repeat. For two more years or longer. The same cycle if I keep Taylor at all like I don't know that it they they could a lot of things go right and they could get they can get hot and and and have a good year. And break the drought would like that matched the maxed out settings is replete. Not mean a wild card game not make it to the championship game not all my god make it's. It's break the drought. Yeah a going to panic. Might rejoin the banner that it broke the drought like what would like really different. If that's my match and gratitude and wanted to do whatever it takes. To get out of the rough. I don't wanna settle for what. I mean in the bagels and pet decidedly better results in a pretty tough division do but I don't wanna settle for any. I don't wanna settle for. The rotating I I I don't. I've got options. So you do belong. But showed the Bulldog he attacks back after this. And have an apparent tickets go check out Chris Stapleton.

He was even in the zone what is put that would have been on the line with it up with Minnesota played somebody this weekend watch. And you guys what was off. And it's obviously it was him. And they caught it and tackled. Like four defenders between this guy went to never have been locked in the what you. On the reported. While the intentional walk may be that good at the teacher looked up. I don't know maybe says that. If the bills really wanna keep Tyrod Taylor should just say so. What's a good reason for them not doing that at this point. Lee reporting. Last couple days you wrap or I guess is that'll that. That it's more likely than not that Iran if they want to keep Tyrod. Should they just say so think of that idea is that. A bad idea. 8030550. Is the number ESPN has something called the quarterback carousel today.
