This Week’s Show…

Athlete’s Angle with Ryan Karhut goes beyond the box score to discuss the issues and trends in sport and how they affect your favourite athletes from youth and university sports all the way through to the pros. Athlete’s Angle brings you weekly interviews that give the many faces of sport including coaches, trainers, decision-makers, and of course, the athletes themselves, an opportunity to discuss the issues and their impact on how today’s athlete trains, prepares, and competes. At Athlete’s Angle, you don’t need to know the latest stats and standings to have an opinion.

Ryan and the rest of the crew are ready for the 2011 MLB baseball season! To help us make sure that we’re up to speed on our baseball, Micheal Elves, co-host of UMFM’s Bench Jockeys, joins us to discuss the upcoming MLB season, fantasy baseball, and the Winnipeg Goldeyes.

Take 5…

With the NFL players locked out by the owners, speculation has begun that some players may head North to the CFL.  How much truth is there to these rumors?
Dallas: There is nothing to this. The CFL would not jeopardize it’s relationship with the NFL and the NFLPA would not jeopardize it’s relationship with the CFLPA. Probably more the first thing though.
Henry:  The CFL has made it clear to its teams, that they cannot make offers to NFL players under contract.  We may see some rare non-contract B-list players that sneak into the CFL, but it will be at the detriment to the team and player.  This was a stunt by Jason Babin, nothing more.
Ryan:  If the Ricky Williams incident taught us anything, and it hasn’t, it’s that the CFL will never again step on the toes of the NFL. So no, despite the shockingly desperate threat by one Jason Babin, NFL players will be heading to the CFL. #firekenwhisenhunt

This Week in Bisons Sports

Bison women’s hockey didn’t have a story book finish to the season. The team still has plenty to be proud of this year after knocking Haley Wickenheiser’s Calgary Dinos out of the playoffs. Then went into Alberta and swept the Panda’s on their home ice. They were undefeated in the playoffs this year until the CIS National Championships. Congratulations on a great season Bisons!!!
