THURSDAY PODCAST

We were all over the place on Thursday's Sports Cage.  Co-host Kelly Remple and I aired Boomer Molberg's apology, previewed the Stamps and Riders and talked Dub hockey with the voice of the Saskatoon Blades, Les Lazurak.  Sportsnet's Arash Madani also joined us to preview the CFL DSFs.  You can listen here:

He hates the Province, he hates the team and he hates the fans ... And hopes the plane crashes and kills four players.

But it's ok because he apologized??? Give me a break! He should have been unemployed the next morning.

If Odell Willis said anything comparable would have an apology suffice and make it go away? I think you did this team a disservice by helping him apologies, but it's your show and I can respect that.

Very forgiving you all are.

On the way home from work, I was listening to Kelly on your show, state that no one should have acknowledged what the idiot said in Calgary, and it would all blow over. I don't agree with that. That is the old way of thinking of things before social media took over. Let us all talk about this situation, inform ourselves about why it was inappropriate, and then we can move on. The answer is not to ignore it. I worked for supervisors who ignored workplace issues, and before long, they had bigger problems to deal with, because the original issue had never been dealt with. Rod, once again, I want to thank you for being the most informative on all the top issues of the day. You always have information that I can find nowhere else. Keep up the great work!

Kelly did not say they SHOULD have ignored it. He simply said that every time the Stampeders send out an apology letter, and the media talk more and more about it, it becomes a bigger story. He is 100% correct.

Both Rod and Kelly agreed what Moberg said was horrible, and unacceptable. They also said it was a HUGE mistake, but hoped people can forgive the guy as we all make mistakes. His mistake, granted, was way offside.

Nobody said it shouldn't have been acknowledged??? Where did Remple say that? He and Roddy just said the Stampeders did not beed to respond to the apologetic comments, as this Moberg guy isn't even their employee.

Agreed. The Stampeders getting involved was senseless.

If someone basically told me that they hoped I die, I would be outraged. Your actions of lets "let it go" are somewhat surprising to me.

I guess we don't forgive people for making terrible mistakes around here hey? We Rider fans are just SO perfect....

Listen, the guy obviously didn't mean it in a sense of "I truly, TRULY hope that literally 4 people get killed". It was a STUPID outburst of nonsense that he attempted to be funny, but clearly was not. Bad judgement, and incredibly tasteless remark.

BUT, is it SO inhumane that we want this guy to pay for it for the rest of his life? Did it warrant a Stampeder apology? Be serious.

Just my opinion.
