Shapiro’s Round Table: Cherry’s Demise and Rudderless Babs

On this latest round table, I'm joined by national hockey writer John Matisz from The Score, dynamic blogger and epic soothsayer Luke Armstrong, and former Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender and 80's nostalgist Allan Bester. We discussed: the dismissal of Don Cherry and what it means to the average hockey fan, why the writing was on the wall when it came to his politics, the fallout from having a Canadian icon bite the marketing dust, why the Toronto Maple Leafs remain a dysfunctional hockey team, if Mike Babcock will remain as the coach of this mediocre group of overpaid athletes, and why Allan enjoys Fox News and thinks we're all a bit too sensitive.

Shapiro’s Round Table: Babcock’s Folly and Siakam’s Glory

On this latest round table, I'm joined by TSN sportscasting legend Tony Ambrogio (@Tony_Ambrogio), blogger and basketball guru Mick Sloniowski (@MSloniowski), and site expert of Editor-in-Leaf James Tanner (@James_Tanner123). We discussed: if the Maple Leafs are victims of a falsely constructed social media narrative, what the real future of Mike Babcock looks like, the importance of timing when it comes to free agent additions, why Sheldon Keefe deserves to be mentioned more than just a passing footnote, how benching Jason Spezza set back everything, why the Raptors remain the most likeable team in the country, how Pascal Siakam is on the verge of superstardom, and the legacy of Blue Jays frugality and how it's destroyed baseball in Toronto in a league where more teams tank than actually compete.

Shapiro’s Hockey Round Table: Dinner is on Mitch Marner

On this latest round table, I'm joined by critically-acclaimed blogger and writer Luke Armstrong (@armstrongthings), TSN stalwart and sportscasting legend Tony Ambrogio (@Tony_Ambrogio), and celebrated author and soothsaying economist Marshall Auerback (@Mauerback), who all serve up hot takes on the recent signing of Mitch Marner and the future of the Toronto Maple Leafs. We discussed: their respective hot takes on the Mitch Marner deal (six years, $10.893 million AAV), how they feel about this roster as it's presently constituted, on the prospect of rewarding players before they've won anything, if Mike Babcock feels any pressure halfway through his epic contract, should pressure exist for an organization that hasn't won a championship in 53 years, on the veteran presence of a Tyson Barrie and other wily mercenaries, how backup goaltending could be the difference maker when it comes to Neuvirth, and who they think will be the darkhorse on this ruthlessly talented team of multi-millionaires.
