WG ER Sports Radio 550. It's one of the -- in the future not the near future it's it's a little bit down the road I don't think either one very good. Obviously to step in start for the Buffalo Sabres old boys are different a different animal and different breed that takes time to figure out to know which guy is that guy and they usually sorted out things -- little more time -- forwards and -- -- stuck how we signed it she you know. I'm very quiet so I'm assuming people don't get holidays unique situation that you know there are a lot of veteran GMs of the -- A lot longer and I have -- defendant maybe last week it was a week off me and I didn't hear from anybody last week at all. Catholic betrayed anyway but that I did get attacks from the guys today so -- you today's -- I think now they'll start to. Back on course or not. That I'm not laughing at him. It's what a laugh at the moment. The group -- pro football. I'll win -- go to the got a couple minutes left WGR 550 dot com slash cash. Yeah that's right go there right now and into the code -- income. And another -- at one in four and seven. We've -- -- road course and industrial effective to join us. US has a spot locked up in the quarterfinals how the men's hockey team and up our web Paul. Gold medal silver medal bronze medal no metal you can vote at WGR 550 dot com you can call us -- -- 550. Voted with Bronson. Which is tied for second and 39% of you think the US win eight gold medal when if ever since over twenty for December on 10% no metal. I'm laughing because Twitter. Can be really really fun place by what's going on right now there is. The beginning of a Twitter fight over women's hockey in the Olympics good. Let -- -- the fight your way or talk show Damien Cox Toronto it's. So on one of the -- and newspapers eyeballs are star can. Watch no women's hockey for four years show up one game trash the sport my colleagues in the industry are very reliable in this way no one's trashing the sport. No and stressing the sport. Trashing a tremendous imbalance. Right track and the level of competition. No one is trashing the sport. -- once every four years seated there is not a competition. And it shouldn't be in the Olympics if it's going to be this bad you can have a tournament. He points out that at the world junior championships scores. Fifteen nothing 11110 nothing 9112 or where was the outrage there's no outrage because the world juniors puts on its own tournament. This is the Olympic Games they decide -- the best they decide which sports going based on competition. So there isn't competition. It is a reasonable. Conclusion to arrive at this a while maybe this portion being here clearly there isn't enough competition if one country is good. At an event and nobody else's you don't all other countries shall we just take gold medals. You have to have competition they took you mentioned that took out softball. They take other sports Al football is not in the Olympics specifically for this reason -- now. Free gold medals for being the only. Country that plays football. And there are countries that are stronger than others in certain sports traditionally speaking. You know than the Netherlands the Dutch are very good when it comes to anything in speed skating. And there have been so speed -- eventually will sweep all three medals but as you pointed out he made a good point. Even at these people through medals you know someone's. 110 of a second behind war in L five tenths of a second behind it's not like. You know they're getting their blowing out the rest of the top of the shots in the US they were 51 to six. True true very it's instilled 120 minutes of hockey left it five nothing. It's 51 to six in the shots and there's another period left in the semi finals and and and I think that's it's your right it's not. Saying they they shouldn't play women's hockey player in the Olympic sport. When it's more competitive. When it's not just. If the US the us and Canada are not -- That -- be what bigger than that got us beat the Soviets in 1980 I mean at the US and Canada -- -- and a gold medal game that been an all but one. Since the sport came about in the Olympics in 98. Of what every year was that the US lost to Sweden in the shoot out. I believe how much until the Olympics you can tell me about how well the Russians are usually good at this sport but it's luge or some like that I know the Dutch are good at speed skating. You know the Germans are good at this or whatever the you you'll have sports will they will tell you. That traditionally one country has excelled in this particular event -- that particular sport. What it's still competitive it is still other countries and other athletes from those countries having a chance to be on the podium with a metal or getting on the podium. And it's it's close. This is I mean it's. I mean we went I'll watch with the sound up Purdue in the showboat anybody's been watching the game and listening. That's got to be ridiculous. -- it isn't you know I guess. Take women's hockey out at the rest of the world battered women sock in your you're saying well why penalize the US and Canada. It's it's just it's not even fair news is this such a tremendous imbalance if you can improve the sport in the other countries and make it more competitive. Then it's a more compelling start there's no compelling story in the Olympics when it comes to women's hockey it's Canada and the US in the gold and if it's anything other than that I think 51. Just corn chips -- 37 and so it doesn't think she had -- look at it's that's on the NBC's screen. It's 3720. OC this is it's about being sent to people are sensitive -- your. I'm not on women exactly that criminals or what is that's what will be said no look the guy texted you about. Usaid about basketball about the dream team. Yeah for for -- I do not enjoy watching Olympic Games. Or what used to be Olympic Games it's closer now because other countries have gotten better but it was no fun when the dream team would come out and beat everybody by fifty. It's boring what's the point of doing that and it's nice you know when the gold medal -- -- are just out what. Olympic basketball now is much more compelling why other countries have gotten better. The games are closer the US doesn't just walk out of when the gold all the time to blow it up by 4050 points. Because the at the rest of the world has gotten better which is a good thing makes for more which colleagues set of Olympic and. It is part of the chicken of the -- -- horse you know when you've got some saying well the Olympics will help these other countries get better like maybe. But the Olympics are necessarily supposed to be a training ground for other for sport to grow -- -- this is what here we have a chance but pulled -- second because here's the good here this is it is the fifth time women's Olympic hockey and play as -- good point. 1992 dream team goes of the Olympics they dominate. And they help grow basketball globally. So this is an opportunity for the US and Canada to help grow women's hockey globally by I've been. Olympic events maybe in Russia and its Russian there'll -- 562. Women play hockey. Maybe after the Olympic Games in Russia that number increases maybe in South Korea and South Korea can -- a winter. I'm a hockey team. And South Korea started a women's Olympic program they gonna lose by sixty because they play the US or Canada they really tweak the tournament to make it not look as bad as it is. In games like this one are gonna bring it out so. I would simply say. Don't be so overly sensitive to think -- Cox on the like. You know watched shall be trashed the sport no one's trashing the sport trashing is that -- should not have a sport with a scoring chances -- 37 to nothing. Imagine them dream team went over to play. In the the Summer Olympics and the score was 100 to zip in the other team didn't get a shot. Well I don't know this is terrible this is kind of down right although I guess it's that the -- going -- -- -- Close when the -- fifty to six. Yeah this this should be regret that Canada this to be the basketball equivalent of the other team barely getting it past half court. Where they got into the front court more often than not they would turn the ball over and play would go the other way like they would never they'd rarely get a sniff of the basket. So and you know what I think again. I think Canadians by and large are sensitive time you think bring up anything remotely negative for the sport of ice hockey. Apparently it it goes from not just men but women as well. And and it cannot. Again it's it's not the sport of -- when I -- well I'm not try I don't think the the point is trash the sport the point is get the sport better. If you wanna be in this country lateral level make it more competitive and to the point is that the Olympics will help make the sport better so it's gonna but its ban. Even in the best game since 1998 it's been once this is the fifth Olympic Games which have been twenty years. One years in sixteenth whenever yet. Sixteen years but even in the men's side who's the worst team -- it right I think they ended up being the twelfth seed yeah. 11 nothing lossless audio files with seven seconds left in one game it's gonna beat them. Now they're either not getting competitive and I -- one shot on goal yes so that's why it's just it's. Just it just doesn't make it's a tough spot it's tough spot but just don't be -- -- -- you know what but but -- bring up any other sport even -- -- Anything snowboard bobsled. Skiing. Luge speed skating. By apple on anything nordic combined. There's nothing like this in terms of domination I mean -- there everything else is more competitive than. We talk about right the US navy -- -- not because it would have been dominating snowboard. It's no other sport. Has this big a gap. From the top. Talk and top two teams here and the rest of the Olympic field nobody's got this big third period and the US coast and persuade. Tyler Texas men's basketball's bigger joke it's not it's not -- -- immediate and clear indication -- watching -- get on the Internet I'm trying to pull up results. From the point twelve games. Can you do this your fast I'll admit that I am Oprah the scores. Because sure when they first when they first went to the pros. And they started a Hazmat team contract concert was absolutely. But you know it's gotten it's gotten a lot better and the teams are are much more competitive the countries are better. That's that's what people talk and that's created some. Anger back here in recent years like yours and you know hey we gotta get better US the rest of the world is catching up to us. The US destroyed the Dominican Republic. They beat Brazil by a lot and they beat Argentina by six -- their exhibition games into the Olympic Games. They played France and -- away they blew away Tunisia. They destroyed Nigeria. They beat Lithuania by five. They beat Argentina they destroyed them Australia same thing. Semifinals in the final the US beat Spain by seven. They blew out Argentina's semis but 26 aria and every thing this and so there are -- close -- there are more than two teams that can. Don't get shots off. Sweden. Six points. A look at the to the quarterfinals the case of the USB industrial Iraq by thirty the rate. Spain very good very good team beat -- by seven Russian Federation played Lithuania. Nine Argentina played Brazil five. The other semi final Spain and Russia eight points the bronze medal game four point game. Women's hockey is to know you put the US and again you put Canada game it is blowout city. I'm looking at 2008. Just for the fun but anyway I know announcing with a lot of listings to it's it's it's just. It's a discussion. I just wanted to see what candidate results were this year. -- the Olympic hockey they blew everybody out. -- Syria you look at basketball get the full US -- is going to the gold medal game and -- click here is the the store -- up from. Pro football talk yes that's the story -- please help me understand why this pro football talk story I'm supposed to be mad about it. Canada you know and I -- Yeah. And it's a pretty clothes if I read this right. Women's preliminary round Canada beat Switzerland five nothing. Pretty close against -- -- while the US beat Switzerland nine nothing. Canada beat Finland three nothing. And in Canada beat the US three through. Those were the preliminary round and so. One blowout you know the beat Sweden five nothing or five there's five nothing and and the shots are fifty yeah I don't -- it's too I'm just look at the scores ultimate -- telling a probable off. -- Mike for a pro football talk has not about. -- the recent developments you know last week the bills than the governor named five people to this working group to study a new stadium for the Buffalo Bills. He points out that. There are assigning people to this group put the bills don't want a new stadium they wanna just. Renovate the Ralph which to doing right now and at least right he writes it's a stunning disconnect for team at least file that plummets. In six years from forty million point eight million. His point is it basically is a lot of CYA going on here. That. I'll read. Word for word from him what better way to commence the process of covering key sectors and former committee that will spend the next few years spinning its wheels on the potential but fiscally impractical construction. All of a new stadium the franchise doesn't want. If the powers that be were serious about finding a way to keep the bills in buffalo they do working to come up with a kind of solution the team for first instead of plotting to build a stadium the team doesn't want. The failure of the two sides to be on the same page of such a key point suggests. Elected officials understand how this will play out they wanna position themselves being able to say they tried to do everything they could. Keep the team in buffalo and -- goes on the say that he thinks the team is doing the same thing. Look at the tip of the state your long term needs a new stadium. Why don't you keep sinking money into an old stadium to keep the team here if that's your long term they needed to stay -- and it is it worth it to spend. It's under 10130. Million last renovation was what eighty million. -- that's 200 what's the next one is a 200 million the next and I are deported million dollars to just renovated. A fifty year old stadium in the lease is up next time if you wanna keep the team here the issue was to build new stadium and if you're gonna bring up but the team doesn't want a new stadium eight. Let's talk about a team where the owner hasn't told anybody at least publicly what his plans are for the team. Well you're right Ralph we will will pitch in. 100 dollars from each first chin up keep the team will talk about a new stadium will deal with maybe PS cells god forbid an increased ticket prices that. The owner of the team has told nobody about the future of the franchise so if you're politicians he didn't like -- better study this stuff. But the problem with this discussion as. No one even knows we're gonna need papers stated is no one knows who's gonna who's taken over the team at the orders reach any kind of a dealer. Keep it doesn't make sense if your floor -- what do you pick the politicians. If they didn't do their job. I'd be furious at them they completely ignore this well you know since Ralf hasn't said. What is still with the team we're just gonna completely not not look at position. The yellow and it's -- these guys for not doing everything into all their due diligence to find a solution to keep the team here if Ralph says you can have a local -- But he's they have to do it. Florio writes that the politicians or the decency -- honoring their dead but -- Hypothetically the bills leave. Does the public. Immediately vote every one out of office all of the blame the owner for not sell -- and a local surely well but the idea that they're doing this just a couple of results. Is not what I really as the county executive. Be lose an election because the bills left on his watch right what what -- IMS and announced that would that ever happened. For some voters sure I don't know that you Blue Devils leave so orders would hold it against an absolutely sure ticket to people that now would it get him out of office Dow act. Like the governor you -- the governor's got to win in Vienna on it. The governor state of the different thing nobody outside Lesnar but he does support the idea that he puts the other lieutenant governors on the court all these people are in position lining up themselves just to protect themselves when the team inevitably leads I think to myself. They don't have to do that. Maybe they do that I think her I mean they don't think they would. I think yes some people would hold it against the county executive that he didn't keep the bills. What I don't think it would. And on the -- voted out of office -- I don't think that many people would look at that it just sounds like when reading the Florio piece it read to me like something of a I don't know comport like conspiracy theory -- guess -- -- the future is a bit in the air because of the ownership situation. But I hardly think that it is the team and politicians. Just putting a lot of elaborate shell to convince you that they care when they -- that's -- like to me. I don't they're both doing whatever they can not to get blamed. Wet and he's. If the team -- he is wet and -- please neither side wants to get blamed so this is what they're doing so the politicians will say this scenario is this. They know the team's leading politicians are gonna do this -- We formed a committee we did we -- we -- we wanted to build a new stadium. And the bills will say. They don't blame us we told them a new stadium is a network -- it will work fiscally here need to reach you know just renovate the Ralph. The bills of -- was -- the politicians would listen to us. So both sides blame the other side. Well the bills will have no business letting anyone but themselves. As a video of this is exactly right if the bills leave it will be one person I mean it will be one person's fault his team. His business it's his property. To every -- to do yet he could have agreed it will sell it hadn't done anything one person maybe faults the wrong word -- one person's decision it will be his. Active decision. If they move no one will have to field any blame. All of that one person made the decision to not insure that they -- late. 8030515. To join us 88550. To 550.
