He Could Go All The Way…….

Even at the college level some players forget which way their team is going!

Check out Kent State’s Andre Parker pick up the muffed punt and run toward his own endzone!

The only thing more bizzare than Parker’s lacking sense of direction is the fact that two Towson players chased him down and tackled him.

Check out this bizzare video:

Where it all went wrong…

By Ryan Karhut

Investors Group Field has been a focal point for much of the Bombers season.

With the much anticipated hype of the new stadium, management took some bad advice and assumed it would be done prior to the original completion date. Armed with the good news the Bombers requested the CFL to start them on the road for the first four games. Thus giving them time to ensure the new stadium would be ready to open for game five of the season….let’s start there.

With delays of the stadiums completion taking away from the team itself, the Continue reading

Why Paul LaPolice Was Fired

By Ryan Karhut

Paul LaPolice was fired Saturday but why?

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers announced today that they have replaced Paul LaPolice as head coach of the team. The move came after a crushing defeat on a last second field goal by the class of the league, the BC Lions. The Bombers are 2-6 so the news shouldn’t be a shock. Yet somehow it is. Lets look a little deeper as to why that may be.

One year removed from winning the Eastern Division and losing in the Grey Cup to the same BC Lions, things seem to have taken a dramatic turn for the worse, or did they?

When we think about last years version of the Blue Bombers we think about an opportunistic defense, timely offense, and of course Swaggerville. We think Continue reading

Bye Bye Stadium (air date: October 31st, 2011)

After 44 years, Bison football has played their last game at University Stadium. The Bisons will be moving to a new home next year at the Bomber Stadium.

On this weeks show we say good bye to an old friend. After 44 years the University Stadium has seen its last football game. The Bisons closed out their season with a disappointing loss and will begin play next year in the new Bomber Stadium. We also will have alumni recapturing their fondest memories of the stadium as well as Chris Zuk, the host of “This Week In Bison Sports”, will join us. We’ll ask him how the Bison men’s hockey team lost a game several days after winning it. All that and so much more this week on Athlete’s Angle.

Rookies Steal The Show (air date: October 24th, 2011)

Anthony Coombs evades defenders and scores on a 90-yard reception in his first ever CIS game earlier this year against the University of Calgary. In spectacular fashion he finished his debut with 2 touchdowns.

On this weeks show I am joined by Henry and Grayson in the studio. We are talking about the recent phenomenon of rookies becoming impact players. We are seeing this trend grow and develop in the NHL and CIS. We will get an athlete’s perspective on it when Anthony Coombs joins us. Anthony is having a breakout year this year with Bison football. And to give us a coaches thoughts on having to play rookies, is Bison football head coach Brian Dobie. All this and so much more this week on Athlete’s Angle.

Winnipeg Roundup (air date: August 8, 2011)

The Athlete’s Angle crew gets back together to resume their regular sports-talk duties after taking the August long weekend off. And what better way to get you back into the swing of things than to give you, the loyal listener, an earful about the Winnipeg sports scene, which is alive and well to say the least. Ryan and the crew further discuss the most recent Jets news including a jersey scandal, the first-place Blue Bombers, and there may even be a Gold Eyes reference in there for your listening pleasure. Oh yeah, the NFL also got back to work a couple of weeks ago and free agency has been going crazy ever since — and well, we haven’t gotten through one show yet where the NFL didn’t get discussed so we figured why stop now.

Enjoy the show!

Athletes Walking Away From the Game (air date: July 25, 2011)

Henry and Dallas running the show this week as Ryan is once again out (fortunately, his excuse is of the legitimate nature)! This weeks topic:  when athletes walk away from the sport they love. Talk amongst yourselves…uh, on second thought, it’s probably a bit easier if you just tune into the show.

Justin Cooper logged three seasons (2008-10) in the CFL with the Edmonton Eskimos

Besides, it’s not just Henry and Dallas that will lead you through today’s topic, we got Justin Cooper on the show. You may remember Justin Cooper from the Manitoba Bisons Vanier Cup victory in 2007 as he was a key player for the Bisons in the game and throughout the season. After Manitoba, Justin went on to the Edmonton Eskimos of the CFL where he logged three seasons before deciding to call it quits before the 2011 campaign. Cooper discusses why he had to make the decision to retire and the benefits of life without football. We think it’s an interesting topic — hopefully you do as well! 

Enjoy the show!

Referees and Officials – Part 2 of 2 – Professional Referees (air date: July 18, 2011)

Fresh off his one-show suspension, Ryan returned to the Athlete’s Angle line-up and jumped straight into some more discussion about officiating. This week, we had the pleasure of welcoming Hector Vergara to the show, a football (the actual with-your-foot kind, not the occasionally-with-your-feet-but-mostly-with-your-hands kind) referee with an extremely impressive resume that includes 11 FIFA World Championships including 3 World Cups! Hector discusses his rise through the officiating ranks and whether or not players should be allowed to take advantage of officials by bending the rules.

And we don’t stop there. Henry and Dallas then risk everything and go undercover to bring you the dirty details of fantasy baseball dealings in the Athlete’s Angle fantasy baseball league as part of an exclusive report. Our undercover investigation led us to the dirtiest dealer in fantasy sports and we get the opportunity to question his practices.  Spoiler Alert:  it’s Ryan!

Buckeye Nation in State of Shock Today

"We Won! Fur Coats For Everyone!!!"

It what has been a more than rocky year for Jim Tressel, head coach of the Ohio State Buckeye’s football team, he has decided to step down after a meeting with university officials. Tressel, who coached for ten years at Ohio State, leaves the school with a more than impressive 106-22 record and a string of 6-straight Big 10 Championships. In his ten years he also held an impressive 9-1 record against arch rivals Michigan. He also Continue reading
