Sounds like somebody's got a case of the moon did these these how we Simon and Jeremy why each. A voice say they'll want side option against free agency if it would come that going to be respected and put the numbers aside I felt that coming into him and you know it's bush and beer. You know where that fans can I mean I flew in hindsight where is everybody you know I think you know. You know they're out there it's freezing cold man it's unbelievable man atmosphere as loud and that's one of the reasons why I was so excited my dad to me about Buffalo's because of the fan base and just atmosphere here. Michael turns to get away from Atkins at. Michael got a cross ice age. Our friend for lives are known as shown it all year we can come back in this game is it shouldn't take a deficit nothing nothing to wake us up to him early but ultimately you know we really came together as a group and and a funnel to one.

Tournament brackets that sabres we again football news. Happy Monday everybody ended the big snowstorm on the way. Well I listened to. Airman just break down exactly yeah how it's all gonna happen okay not really a big snowstorm sold much does it take very long. Smile and could very long mild snowing. It's in is that the flurries rolling I think tonight. And stay until well where like today June but just a regular June Jones a little bit I think that would be a big event but tonight. Tomorrow morning tomorrow night Wednesday morning and then maybe again on Friday night another one. So in other tournaments and I'm now we get out that's like fourteen inches of snow potentially. In certain spots but adding up slowly over time so and very windy the other might not be one he said there might not be one time. Where it's super super snowy where you can't see yeah. But yet it's gonna an upgrade we had like nothing has to Internet turn off comes in tonight at Telus it's up. I do I don't know anybody that said winter was over this year I UC said it yet good UGX that not me nice that it was left. I didn't runs though are out though. And so on and just get the using it happen anywhere yet if you could tell quiet right out and I followed on Twitter didn't seem like much was happening actually brutally honest it was. Mostly quiet even though there was news. There wasn't a lot of and on our after that there was no big. Noise big reaction to it when they've restructured Tyrod which is is Vicki got on a plane. And as soon as you got on a plane the they announced restructuring Tara I like to thank the bills were holding off and ran until I got that account now I am I'm serious about being. Thank you very much they they did they did that and you know I think you've got people that were very happy and even those that would've been really upset with tyra returning the restructuring and it took the teeth out that's the area right okay yeah. I get it nice Dicey with their due when that happened. The sabres. It's New York on a thought the head coach Mike you fire while you were on. I'm vacate consult as one of your after that first period and I start to wonder if he can make the trip out west that I think they've got a situation even though they won that game they've got a situation with their coach that seems like a as a standoff. I saw you treat I was I was I was checking Twitter out I don't know that we were Friday night were. Somewhere at Butler Florida. But I I saw that they were down three nothing and came back to win. And are known I was Saturday's game at the Friday game was. Okay yeah it's all right all blends together I just well I was the same team back to backs that I can happen with that and it and that but that's the sabres season in a nutshell I mean Friday Saturday is exactly who they are they might. You might expect to get beat by Columbus and they play in close and they have a dog first period and you think. Fire everybody trade everybody in the they come back and play well the second part when the hockey game you scratch and going. That's that's exactly the sabres are up. And get the NCAA tournament fields we got where he wanted to start I've got plenty just to get to I do want to spend some time at some point in the show. Talking about one of the greatest sporting events I've ever seen in my lifetime. No not Tim Tebow started about the spring training game will get to that a little bit not duke North Carolina in the college basketball tournament actually caught we got that MySpace is John the big Carolina fans so we got. We got back to her stand. Saturday. Night that would have been herb Friday night Friday that I like it's out of our goblins and we saw the last per in the car driving back from spring training in and visiting some people. And Carolinas up thirteen with 6140 ABC's in great spirits. We got back to the house are staying at it was a two point game. And then I did do duke went on select 33 to eleven run they looked so we did catch some of that game duke looked extremely good. I mean it's not you know crazy to say take it to seed to win it all the duke looked that good like you be that impressed about they play. I feel like this. Past weekend used to be it's for me as big a weekend as next weekend is for a lot of people when you see a lot of the games next weekend but the best sports data years. Whenever thirty basketball games. The bit is the former big east of Syracuse in the tournament in Madison Square Garden like I've. FaceBook shows your your memories and going back. The I've got tons of memories from. Syracuse in the big east whether it's losing on a walk and injury one year with a six overtime game against UConn or Jerry MacNamara going crazy in that one tournament. And since Syracuse left the big east in that they're the ACC one they don't win tournament games so that kind of hurts that Blake. Everything about college basketball that used to be. Great for me is now just. It's kind of like your weekend everything just kind of blends together or like they've Villanova won the big east great who's in the big east side. Feel like this is gonna say I mean this is not gonna go over well like Villanova fans. But it's like the big east doesn't exist to me is not the big east if this is not your father's big east I mean it doesn't it's not the same. There's still Providence is in there are a great team but right there's no star power in the big east that is its Villanova and who it's just like I said it's a different and I get it. Times have changed you know the big gate the big twelve there's twelve teams in the pac twelve there's. However many teams in the Big Ten even though they haven't changed the name sixteen maybe 414 most. So showtime to change but that's not. It's just not the big east no offense to the schools that are in their now it's not the same conference to be so. You know they put up seven teams seven teams in the big east made the turn out of ten. Not sure I could name more than three teams in the big east. Well not just that but. You kind of get of a feeling for how like how much is that North Carolina duke game mattered to either team right now buddy you know there and I were both gonna get high seas of course to seed problem that the whole gonna get in the vault gonna get high seeds the system bragging rights exactly and they get a comes on like your ACC championship this two teams that should wanna beat each other but there isn't really anything on the line anymore and typically. I I would say that's typically the case for North Carolina and duke com ACC tournament it's a body of work Carolina got a one seeds of people are thinking why. And the guy in other to the head of the committee said the body of work you know look what they did they won the regular season ACC title you know with a arguably the best team in the excuse me the best conference in the country to put. Apps to meet nine teams. I think I think he's he's got nine bids so they won the regular season title and they got the ones he I mean hey you know duke Carolina was just. Duke Carolina playing for a third time this season. And duke gets to beat Carolina and say we've beach in the ACC tournament which I think they've done four straight now against smoking graduate of the ACC tournament Syracuse not in. Find sorry meant. Not really deserving I mean. They've they've beaten duke on that half court shot and it by sales as therein therein baby I thought I don't think any one more win this. They beat George attacking I thought all right still need one more way and they lost in the first round of the tournament or the ACC tournament it can mean c'mon. Beat a nine seat right. That there were they were eight Miami was nine yeah and you lose that opening round game to Miami thank mare you're not an academic it and sell. I'm I'm not the least bit disappoint and even. If it was funny that you remember last year how it all went they got in Fella he didn't deserve to get in. And her every time they won again I kind of told you like okay. I guess this is one they're in the final four but I don't think they're very good but let's and they just kept winning so it's kind of a similar feeling of like a second straight year watching Syracuse basketball thinking. Then something's not right they're there and they're not good weather it's time for Jimmy I'm gonna move a longer they've got the wrong kids it's. It's just not been that that great lately that a run of like what 23 years in a row is a one seed and now two years in a row on the bubble and now. Out of the tournament I've come to understand though than ninety NCAA thing having never understood it fully because they with the buffalo state you know. But living vicariously through my division one son. If Michigan's I mean Michigan State's not good this is a down year for Michigan State and they end up getting a nine seed somehow. But at Michigan State missed out on the tournament went to the united he would have been the biggest non event in the East Lansing in a pick who cares for me and ninety. You got the number one overall seed in the nineties as anybody care and Syracuse know. They're gonna they gonna play. NC Greensboro at the Carrier Dome tomorrow night are you taking Wednesday operas are going to I'm certainly am not okay that's a controlled job I thought that at the I don't feel like every time I've tossed about Greensboro played Greensboro I had no idea what he said about Greensboro but but I I get it. Even in a down year you still wanna be in the NCAA tournament maybe you can get a run. You know who knows eat you never like last year you know they were a ten seed last year right I think in the mated to the final four there's just something about still. Being in the NCAA tournament when you're at that level because anything else is just why are we from playing well type of blue small Spicer result. We have a wedding shower this week and one of the very many steps along the way to getting aria get a shot yeah yeah yeah so the conversation was at is they're going to be a television at the shower. Because its joint. Couples I've ever all of penal friends colleagues not just none that it's not us her wedding showers and you have to be either be out all Casey I didn't that it wouldn't do that in just her shower so I picked her when it was done right. That's happening it's basically just take people come drinking Beers and a bar yet so the conversation was. While the tournament's going to be all right during this should be get television what do Syracuse is going to be playing firm will people wanna watch that there and you know. The conversation Evans anyway she is two siblings who went to West Virginia. Well west Virginia's in town yeah at all the sudden. The TV got a little bit more momentum to be seventy mainly needs and televisions for the West Virginia fans you got to keep either even if they're West Virginia wasn't. The tournament that's what I thought you gotta have a television there you gotta have the at least have the option to all of having a TV available for the guys that want it or people that wanna check in the game lets the nice part of the next couple weeks is that. At least for Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday you've got you know you got big events on the way to on Thursday I don't know I'm going to be able to find a basketball game for about twelve straight hours yeah. For four days will be watching. Basketball and let that still at and it's here the turn of its air which is great and anybody need my Thursday tickets though I think ominous omen Thursday ticket. There's a ball early Saturday there's the early sessions well it's twelve and 230 in and then the night session but night sessions not happening sabres are on the West Coast so I'll be DV aren't Thursday's game and waking up at 3 o'clock on Friday night session not happening at all. I think those Saturday Saturday we're looking at what. Villanova Notre Dame. I I I read it I got to look at the brackets you everything fell I've forget all the individual matchups but. The other Thursday in kind billowing over verses mount Saint Mary's or New Orleans. I mean the Wisconsin Virginia Tech game should be a good game it's an 89. I like Mike Brey in this you know he always has entertaining basketball game basketball teams at Notre Dame it's not a bad bracket. But I don't know there was not like if northwestern was here seem northwestern in their first ever NC eternal game I thought would have been pretty cool. There's nothing like that I look at for Thursday got. I gotta be their for this so if anybody wants my Thursday tickets also element cost let me know I will Lagos Saturn. I will miss being in a for Syracuse and it might be different for every school but you know depending and we are round one is almighty god just don't lose it because then it gets remembered for twenty years if you're high seed you mean like Michigan State Middle Tennessee State last year which is still bothering my exactly right that was that was the first Roger Richmond game right for the big programs the first round is just don't lose right the second round is. Win here and I get a hold other week of having fun thinking about this tournament you're in the sweet sixteen the. And a big step that is the big difference like when they gonna come up with stats I don't have the North Carolina numbers are for enemy but it's. X Roy Williams has made X number of sweet sixteens that when you break it down. For the Syracuse is in the north Carolina's in the Kentucky's in the MSU's. You should walk in your first round game for short and then in the second round game you're still typically a higher seed playing a lower seeds so. I feel like we put. Too much weight for the big programs that make sweet sixteen is win two games against two lower seeds one of them to double digit typically. So I get it I mean yeah it's all about getting the sweet sixteen but yet there's there's a lot of there's pressure on the big big programs but it really shouldn't be that hard. More often than not you too advanced through the first two games of the tournament your major program. And high seed to get to the sweet sixteen now like Villanova doesn't get out at. Out of buffalo would be a start colossal failure. And then when you to the sweet sixteen win one game. The elite eight is where I think it starts to really feel like a thing when all you and your client then you start thinking about winning the tournament no matter who you are once you make the elite eight it's. You know one win from the final four who knows and your play and high seeds like in the south region if form holds. In the in the regional file your talk and number one North Carolina against number two Kentucky. Now you're typically talking about the top teams in the tournament just to get out of the regional finals so yeah there that look it's still. I'm glad to turn him it's here it's still fun I've I've been to the tournament almost every time it's been here in buffalo it's a blast it's great team and fans from the different teams come in. Wonderful I think I loved being a part of the terminology in all but I'll I'll spend Thursday just kind of watch and all the games all across the country don't forget you know what's tournament means every single time tournament comes you're gonna tell me about your bracket no. Well yes but something else happens every time the tournament comes. Lol I don't agree complain anymore about long waits to eat at restaurants no means actually got more restaurants now so we still we don't will get complains about not having Cooper we will I believe there will be complaints on marketing over however the cab companies are setting up like. There but there I think they're staged staging home base operations out of canal site for college is very good so there will be more access to taxi cab when I think it also I think of all the people downtown that are going to be looking for ways to get around one would think you know but one other thing happens don't forget. Maybe it's more of a world juniors thing that I and civilly term thing. I got you right. Parking prices go lot yes. Well par the forgot the second part parking prices go up and the second part is people complain. That this is supposed to be the city of good neighbors we shouldn't be charging big parking this is why we are a real city because we try to. Take all the money from visitors OK let me play you this quick glance this doesn't happen in every I can I tell you react now reports. I have no idea with the Marlins charge before regular season parking lot. World Baseball Classic usaid Dominican Republic sold out marlin stadium Saturday night. Twenty bucks to park anywhere near the ball anywhere twenty bucks can you believe they would try to make a buck off of people visiting Marlins item right now and tell me. Maybe they maybe they charge twenty dollars to park right Saber regular season games I think or twenty dollars near the arena you know so it's entirely possible. A few years ago I went to a heat game in Miami. Now there happen to be a huge music festival in downtown Miami going on at the same time in the vicinity of the of the arena at saint. Thirty bucks to park anywhere near me within a few block radius of the Miami Heat game. Thirty dollars because there was a major festival going on downtown so what happens. What people are coming downtown more people are parking downtown what are they gonna do they jacked up the parking right so. I mean it does it happens all over the maybe it was the world juniors were tickets are we were world junior it was a hundred box or ID we get I remember seeing a picture of the sign about one a lot down near the arena and how people really ticked off from a as they do. This just didn't guess what else. Big events come to town you know what else. Hotels Jack their rates up try booking a hotel in Florida for spring break any time in the month of march. And compare that rate to non spring break rip weeks that's everything gets jacked up and learned over the years so I don't. You know hey park up town. Take the train for free. Anybody from out of town listening adult park downtown there's a three dollar a lot of few blocks up over by fountain plaza hop on the free train and take it to. You're gonna do park downtown and pain I mean I can't title estimates of a trip and evaluated the city. And or event. Based on the prices I was or was not willing to pay him for parking look I don't like to pay that much for parking I guess that I don't park downtown at the arena I do like I go park by fountain plaza. Here's your three dollars you walk couple blocks shop on the train bomb gear there. I don't like paying for parking but sometimes you just you understand as a sports fan. And the price is gonna come with a ticket you're gonna pay to park in the close you are to the venue. The more you gonna pay to park but I got to get people being upset but. Term. You pay in what 75 ish dollars a ticket to go see the tournament I suppose just chalk up another twenty bucks for parking. And it's gonna snow a lot. That's you know that's that's actually does bother me we got his mild winter we had no problems it's been warm it's been snow free. And teams are gonna start arriving what Tuesday probably. Bill coming to town because the price do they apple do an open practice Wednesday and the games are Thursday and the going to be coming into town during like possibly a foot of snow in forty mile an hour winds. We're gonna hear about you know the buffalo weather people in the complaint in what was one of the milder winters in recent history right mild as February I think ever. Now I get African snowstorm before the tournament comes to. Around eight to twelve inches the latest from usury and I'm thirty on the snow forecast. Eight to twelve that'll get here probably by. Thursday so well now it will be here for that most of it yeah it'll fall during the widgets that I think the heaviest part is coming down Tuesday that the day teams are ride yeah from early this evening to early Wednesday evening guard. Moderate at times heavy snow at times blowing snow. Men all right welcome to buffalo there her enjoy the turn where winter has now moved into march and unfortunately. We talk about quarterbacks needing to throw in the elements leftist are worried nor games played in March because. This is now the month that its notes as long as the snow is cleared out by eight next weekend's you can do Saint Patrick's Day celebrations part too often it's I assume people went to the understand the parade was this past week and they had a big crowd there was one parade this weekend there's another parade and the old old yes allfirst war was this weekend just past which usually they go back to back Saturday Sunday but I thought this year now guys split the weakened OK because I saw on Twitter. What 50000 people were estimated to have shown up for that parade M so as long as the snows cleared out out of the way some Republican party for Saint Patrick's Day guess everything's okay. Sure will be again it's it's gonna fall over time. Slowly. Breaking our will but yeah this winter will not the least. I did I watch the selection did you watch the selection show yet I subplot to this election really. It's a ninety minute show nobody but they got the brackets all lit in the first half hour and then they did all the analysis and interviews I had to watch and to really the guy in the first hour. None have. I would say half hour to forty minutes issue they went pretty decent clip I was kind of just reported there was no leak of the bracket you're in Twitter. But I had to watch his wish I was driving from Detroit to East Lansing and he needed to know Michigan State made the tournament and then where Carolina with seed so I was kind of calling him every few minutes that the brackets were in Vail. I did I watched it because I can't tell you when I haven't watched the selection show if I've been near a television. Couldn't tell you the last Jerry did not see the selection show I I do like to watch that. There are no. A couple moments look went when northwestern got their bid announced. And they show the reaction of the team I thought that was awesome and it's a great story northwestern getting its first ever bid in the history of the basketball program. And there's you know there's couple other stories that you enjoy watching lives little tiny northern Kentucky gets to find out they're playing. Kentucky in Indianapolis which those guys were ecstatic but that's gonna be the greatest sports moment of I think of all of their lives they get the plight Kentucky. In the net and an NCAA tournament games so there are a couple moments that you know made made tournament selection show and I wanted to see who was coming to buffalo it was. It's still fun to watch the show and and see the reaction to some of the teams but it wasn't it wasn't dumb. It wasn't a year where there was like outrage over the bracket right I mean. Syracuse was probably the biggest name left out and you did not hear like you know across the country go enough not the second biggest it was Illinois State then they play it's still you know they played a real they have done 123. Strength of schedule. You know in the in the Missouri Valley Conference but that I was it was a fairly. Quiet bracket process this. Yeah the ones that I've I've got if you wanna if you're Syracuse fan that thinks they should have any and because of their quality wins because they do have some good winzip that beat Florida State to be duke beat Virginia Kerry goes and get better whales that terrible losses but they were torn eleven away from the Carrier Dome this year like they spotted that as one of the reasons that they wanted to you know the USC again. I don't care I'm not upset you know if you wanna be upset here's would you tell your friends when you're making your case. USC hasn't beat a team with a winning record since January 25 date they don't have the quality when Syracuse at USC had liked. Two wins against the top fifty I think and not 186 with a winning record in and it's not one win over a team with a winning record since January 25 yet. Against Syracuse. Beat Miami beat anyone without beating Johnson losing at home by thirty right dead at that. Lost Boston College there and and their nonconference schedule was just. There was not you know Michigan State gets in with fourteen losses bought. They lost in the non cop if there is such a thing as quality loss is getting you in the tournament they lost the duke Kentucky and Arizona. And I think. Baylor Wichita State I mean they had you know it's the Michigan State but you have some really cough nonconference game Syracuse typically will not play. That tougher nonconference schedule that that's one of the other things that came back on them. 8030550. Join us. Lots to get to the sabres weekend we opened up with the NCAA tournament wanted to go over all the bill stuff that happened. The I would like this and if you're just talking about Stephon Gilmore.

As sabres win over the week and tell your eyes assume you have the Atkinson story all odd tweet from much I think I know what is about the I have a kinda came actresses are for the weekend. The one seeds in the NCAA tournament of all over North Carolina Gonzaga and Kansas. Are coming to buffalo and hopefully getting in despite. One looks to be a pretty significant snow event over the next couple days bill and all bowl play the winner of the mount Saint Mary's New Orleans game the playing game. West's Wisconsin and Virginia Tech that's the 89 match up on Notre Dame Princeton is. 512 in West Virginia before seed against thirteen seed balked now. Bucknell is every single year in the tournament right every single yearbook now Syracuse is the number one overall seed the N ninety where. You have awry here thank there play UNC Greensboro. Philly brown bills at the receiving group. By picking up Philly brown is known as Corey brown also three years with Carolina had 79 catches and seven touchdowns. An undrafted free agent out of Ohio State from 2000. Fourteen. Sabres out to the West Coast they play tomorrow against San Jose so if you are. Open what's the sabres this week it's gonna be some bleary eyed mornings because they've got late face offs. All opened on the schedule Tuesday which is democracy them all the play the sharks. And then the kings on Thursday and the ducks on Friday. I was thinking that Dan Viles book could be fired before that trip. When it was three nothing at the end of one thought it was possible. I don't know what they're gonna do to be on us our I. I think they have a standoff. Between their coach in their locker room yet and I understand that people get upset at the ideal like letting young players basically run a coach out but. You when you do that you you who what you accept or you. Immediately just. Put as a given that you have a great coach. By saying though it isn't it possible that that the players are not happy with the system. And not have to with a coach because. He's not good. That is possible just because the guy won a cup doesn't mean he can be good yet. He asked to be a good coach forever and everything he ever does is the right thing to do. So you know in the situation. You can decide decided players are inside decide who the coach. But I don't think you just have to accept that Dan files Mike is off 100% correct. On everything and in every way I don't think it's for me it isn't necessarily the young players it is the concept of players of the idea that. Players in the brought locker room whether it's young guys veterans. A combination thereof. Our. Are not happy with their coach take their gripes to management and management says. Why can't trade seven guys saw this fire the coach is not only have of players getting their coach fired at they don't like the guy but they're going to be there again I'll bet most of the guys in Columbus. Don't personally like John Porter route. This is whether or not he's got the right system this guy can get his master of the players I'm sure Lindsay had a lot of enemies in his locker room over the years. Just whether or not pay today that they pay attention to the coach in plight. Or not and if they don't okay what the issue is it personality clashes is it the scheme. Is it his in game coaching is that a combination thereof and honestly at the end they what are you gonna do what you gotta problem you're of one of two things you can do. Change your roster change the coach and in in the salary cap bear with contracts and everything else was the easiest thing to do so. You change the coach it's very part of sports it happens it happens all the time and hockey also. So I don't know when they ultimately do an idea I've had told you for the longest time I thought it was safe until he was. In trouble not our next year I think you know what the more this goes the more I agree with you because I still believe. Even what are they now to six into I think after the win over Columbus the other night they could being 29 and two of this trip doesn't go well. I believe. That Tim Murray would still look at it and go. I did not give them a good enough roster I gave him if we're considered talk about maybe there's two guys on defense we want playing next season. I think Tim Murray would at least give him a better group of defenseman and a better roster and if it doesn't work next season that he would make a book so I. I think more and more this is going to be let me let me get the roster better and then I'll seriously. Evaluate my coach I'm changing one of my prediction is though that you're going the other direction I don't think he comes back next year real. OK I don't think you can look back OK I've heard too much about about or what's going on in there yet. I don't think they can I don't think they can bring him back OK it's that if you have this big of a problem got injured in the locker room right the GM's job the part of this will be. An in. Woolsey maybe he makes it may be. Cooler heads prevail and everyone just leaves for the offseason and they come back next year with a better roster determined win more and that makes everybody happy that that's possible. However if the firearm in the off season. Then Tim Murray will on one level have failed. To not do it sooner. If it's something that was. Right there you were considering doing. They missed their window to get a spark from written they've missed that this season right you're thinking they got right to the bye week in their. In the playoff race and it's come back strong and let's see what happens well they didn't do that it's kind of like our conversation about. You know sticking with the wrong guy quarterback can prevent you from drafting other quarterbacks. All these other teams. Above the sabres in the standings fired their coaches. And most of them got a bit of a push for front via the sabres could have as well and Marie missed that window and since he has missed that window he probably has to go to the end of this season. And at that point make a very. Cough call on what's happening but it's pretty clear the players do not enjoy their experience. Playing for him right leg. But we've got multiple guys saying as much as they can without saying anything. And I I would always an act I wanna comment on the second but I'll go back to something. Paul has said I know he said it with Mike and Chris. He's probably set with a us as well one day when when they asked him about the dissatisfaction he was you know about the all the stuff about some players don't like ultima. One of the guys asked them essentially. Where you're hearing it from and he said all corners of the room so I ever really that means there's a cross section it isn't just. Michael Reinhart and isn't just young guys it isn't just veterans it is just forwards or just defenseman it's not just a goalie whatever I. It's coming from a cross section of guys on the roster. I think. Taught as set I feel like I I feel like Murray would wait and give piles and a better roster I think the only way. Baumann doesn't make it opening day. Is that. Marie would be generally concerned. That there is a lingering issue. That would prevent this team from getting off to a good month of October and if you get off to a slow start to say you'd be buried for the season. But if you feel that you're gonna get off to a slow start and then you're playing from behind trying to get back up into the standings that's the only way I think where it. If this if you believe it'll linger in a mean. Were going to be playing crappy in October and I reach Halloween and roared in last place in the conference and I got to fire the coach that's the only way I think he would make a move in the offseason. If he believes it's seriously gonna hinder that first month or two. Which would force his hand because at some point he'd have to not let the team get to buried in the stands and I did it feel like and all I gotta get this guy better group bowlers. Then you'll have this problem with a better group of players I don't envision this problem the disconnect between the coach and the players I do not envision it going away yeah. I think I don't regularly I think it is a standoff yeah. I think and but again like I said I. And it's when they're right it's what since like a month low of 01 it's been a while it why would anyone think it's going away yeah I the only thing I would worry about as I said. I know how it usually gets hit it usually heads with the players getting a coach fired I mean it's rare. I couldn't be honest that could you give you an example of of another team saying you know what. Were taken the side of the coach or the manager and we're gonna clear up we're gonna clear out the locker room or we're gonna get really get rid of guys that don't like the it's just just don't do you can't you can't operate that way. For various reasons. The highest the only thing that would bug me is there are going to be personality conflicts if it's just strictly they don't like the guy. Tough I'm sorry if you do if if you believe if Tim Murray believes. There are flaws and Dan bows and his coaching ability. It's the wrong system. He's. Using you know he's asking players to do something they can't do. I don't like stretch passes I don't like lying tinkering. I don't like how he you know he's using a rally too much he's using wrist the line in too much she's fat whatever right. I don't like how we manage the goalies I don't know if he's got a list of things he doesn't like about miles not fine. But it fits the guys don't like him. I mean tough for me that's just our way it's gonna bid I don't think that's the I don't think you definitely have to say tough that's the way it is. The I I I can't I would not fire a coach because some guys in my room just don't like they are my personal if my entire room. Well no it's not that hate the coach Tyrone was different then. You know we don't have an exact number a third of the roster I think it is a guy in more than not OK but I just I I do believe. There. What are the next guy comes in and as I said it's a John toward a relic hyper guy. And still win but he's gonna anger a lot of people in the knock gonna be is best friend you can't just keep saying well I gotta I gotta get somebody the players to get along with. No would like to treated as if. Are only two types of coaches warn that one players are like you won the players aren't in the won the players don't like is a winner I mean. But what what's ever one really got hung up on all the winning this year. All of the Denon. I mean a lying changes whether it's players used in the wrong way. I just I think they have a problem and they kind of know it and Tim Marie how much time is he willing to let this just continue to. What fix itself. Does he think all of the people involved are gonna have an again like it comes down to. The rumblings that is a problem in there yeah and when Columbus is up three to nothing he beat you how did you not think and its coach is toast. I he's toast. They've won two games since the Alston Abdel star break but I was as the by would you want to them they've plunged out of the playoff Newton. And that's with a healthy roster. Right did the most part eggs they got healthy but they got the by the weekend and they came out and plunged down the standings now so old. I mean what the coach has done such a great job that I can't do I understand they've got problems defensively. But and on their blue line but if everybody in that room you've got a young team you're trying to get the best out of them you wanna get. Whether it's. You know they're buying into a system. There off twice by and you want your players to feel like there any good environment and its first sounds like they do not feel that way. That's a problem like that I can't just. I guess if you want to you can be one of those folks who says like I tell these bloody oath for a shot it because I didn't complain about my boss and yet that's about you can add that opinion doesn't seem like a very productive approach. To what might be a bigger problem. And it's Emery want to say you know stop crying get to work. That might be his approach in life but as we've talked about with whether it's Doug our own or not how Sean McDermott's gonna do it you've got to manage. Dozens of personalities. And you've got to figure out the person that should be at the front of that. To give everyone a fall in line. And if you'll like his approach but it's not connecting with those 24 people he's the wrong guy you know egged it comes out of that well I have to test to reach them. As to teach them and has to be the right person for the job and you have to win and you don't and if if he is Scotty Bowman in the news. Bill Parcells walks in and it's clear that guys aren't listening to you get amount you get somebody there gonna listen to right but those are guys that people probably hated. Personally possibly they still lot. The minute it yet you eat it you've got to win at the end of the day that's I said it isn't for me it's not just I don't like the guy. It's beyond that it has that it can't just be I'm gonna make a change because guys don't like him personally. It has to be my beyond that I think can be that but if you're waiting you would make changes that were we're talking about this because they're just not winning may be. Olympic coaches haven't fired on their pin playoff positions Montrose and first blazers Jersey scene seemed adored like on ours fairly regular basis down glamour along with that sometimes just is that what the GM does like the coaching you just get a mile right. I mean. Does is it getting in the way of them winning and maybe maybe not. You who I think that's something you have to determine the right yeah getting in the way of winning and you have to ultimately ask yourself when I'm good will this be a problem and I think the answer is yes. It will be a problem even when you're good OKC then so why then you have no choice if you that Jessica that's where I think I'm I'm getting in that. Neighborhood and this offseason. If Tim greatest if it comes to the realization in all their exit interviews the man. Too many of these guys have a problem Mike I think that's a different issue Jeremy and I'm I'm not where you are on that it if it gets to the point where you think. I believed winning cures a lot. But if we get the point you think. This is not gonna change even if were in a playoff spot that I think you have a serious problem and then I think you have no choice but to make a change I'm just not at the boy right think. Personality complex will prevent and bows men from bat from being able to win this hockey team that's I think Tim Murray would say. I'm holding my coach back with this roster. Let me get him a better right I would say if you're Marie. You are evaluated on how you read this decision yet and if you blow this rally could set that's sexy that's on YouTube right right aren't I great. And he's got and here's another layer to this discussion. They have to win exceed there's no more waiting and be patient in this this what if if that was not philosophy of too American for the season let me evaluate the roster let's be patient there's no more weight and be patient. Yeah to indexing. I needed to be in the class in -- that this waiting around stuff I'm done with so there's a lot of pressure on the GM next season this is another part of the discussion with files. What has to happen next season in terms of this team winning games and finally getting into the playoffs because there is a feeling. That wait a minute Ottawa's was coming down and you're going up well Lott it was like passed you now and Boston still ahead of you in Toronto has passed you in too many other teams. Seem to be passing the islanders had a terrible offseason they lost plot key player by the coach fired their coach and they're still ahead of view and they're in a playoff spot. 8030550. Join us 888550. To 550 sabres NCAA tournament. The field coming to buffalo the overall feel would get some football issues as well as I get caught up on free agency. Whatever is undermined this morning we open ball runs a lot to hear from you. 8030550. To join us on WGR. Scratch those two plays a still that might. The emotion the test into the game from our team and I just didn't like. What were put into the game at that point. They scored the third goal at. We just we needed to. We needed to have a response team. Passion and energy and and how we play the game and they came home respond. Sabres coach cam involvement. I I'm ready to talk hockey because I was just I mean you just could not escape hockey talk in South Florida I was down there. I was there what's the you and I let's there's a sports station that we listened to. Almost constantly when we were in the car lot driving to and from met's games every day. Credit created it opened up. And she's what end and the NCAA tournament but I didn't your like. One conversation at all about the Florida Panthers were anything about the NHL over five days down there. To be back into eagle 305 pick to join us 888550. Q 550. We'll get your calls this morning we opened up with the NCAA tournament you wanna talk about the bracket about teams coming to buffalo whatever is undermined with that. We. Moved into the sabres and all the stuff going on with Dan bows as the team heads out today. Ray three game West Coast trip to San Jose Los Angeles and Anaheim. We'll get some football matters in the next hour south going to be this 8 o'clock. Who get become to speed on everything going on with the bills I'm kidding me and have an idea what happened so yeah any thoughts on on how the bills are putting their roster together. There is a theme to it to bring up we'll get to that to Bernadette in Boston your on WG Argo right ahead. Our. Area right. It. You're. At it. Earl what that hurt. That way why that I. All our (%expletive) like that are here they. Are like what I liked what. Are. There. Out. Well the funny thing is like looking at how it was played. The the sabres first off the power plays a big thing for them their kids take the power play carries them. So like when evaluating who they are what they are the first period shot attempts were at five on five about even. And the second here they're about even in the third it was about even who wasn't too far off. Evander Kane mean comment saying like in the second period we played like we have nothing to lose and it was Republican little more often. You know maybe they got. What a good bounces this question yet. What they realize that summer between the first and second or they have nothing to lose aside as the embattled why you score early goal is the same thing about them complaining about don't get you know what we got to show up at the start of the game stop. Sorry go ahead and don't say that all season is too early goal you get a power play goal but that's. And I am I don't think there's really any major difference that the difference is that the result got better right the and they still gave up a breakaway in Leno Letterman a big save made big save on Atkinson on the doorstep you know eve. I I don't wanna look at one game and say something different showed up button. You know what changed. Columbus sat back and in buffalo was was going all out and I guess maybe they just figured this babies over organ is gonna walk over these guys but doesn't look like Alec that the sabres have a shot advantage while Columbus was scoring their three goals in the while Buffalo's working to tie it Columbus has shot advantage. When it comes still like playing his waiver is playing their way. It's some. What seventy games into the season now I get what I didn't come down to one. Don't look this is they are who they thought we thought they are that's what he excelled when you're not good by the way. You'll have some nights where you're gonna go have some nights where your bad this team also does that inside the same game. From one period to the next app again I didn't see either games OK I'd I'd I apologize. You can tweet at me now on sake but it's your job. I was busy watching baseball. But. This is who they are this is how they play how they don't come out for first period and play well in the second period. Probably play well the first period have an abominable foot second period rally have a lead and then looked terrible in the third period. Or go you know I don't know 73 and one and then 206 into this is who they that is is not a good hockey team. Yup I think we can really make ourselves knots about look there there are there are definitely elements of of the French this year talk about coach players relationship. Whether his is his game is too complex. Whether Murray's given the wrong players and executed scheme but at the end of the day if you're trying to figure out why this team is up and down because he's just not good enough. From game to game period to period week to week. There's just not good enough and that's why you see a weekend like you saw against Columbus sometimes they look while. Worst that team bid. And other nights you just scratching had gone how we this and hate that they look like that how often like where's that team then for a full sixty minutes sometimes is all it's very rare for a full four times this year yet know whether they have. They can they can have a period or two and they play really well and then you just kind of river. And make mistakes him I just stiff. I think those periods are how it's supposed to go the worst in Italy would have had you know good periods and especially on the power play that's where they that's who they make their money. That's this team and they've been on the of the game winning goal comes on the power play the other thing that's worth mentioning that happened the difference in period one period to. They're goalie made saves her you know Robin Lehner came in and made a bunch of good saves and he's. What the number one reason they win that game he's the first star who won it four saves and no goals against the maker goalie change in the goalie south salt. Hawks this Marc-Andre Fleury coming in when Pittsburgh was down three nothing all of sudden he doesn't give up anything gruden because it's they had to pull Matt merry. Eagle 30550 to join us 888552. For fifty when we get back. And gore some football stuff all the happenings going on with the bills and though. Dole there is one word that comes up.
