Longtime TSN broadcaster Darren Dutchyshen has died, the network announced Thursday. He was 57. Prostrate cancer. I liked him. RIP

The guy is a fucking idjit. Less is more!
I watch the podcast occasionally. I think Dhali's role is "everyone has a lunkhead friend."

It’s a tough racket for sports media guys in the new world. It’s a dead industry, no money in it. The glory days are over. Social media has changed the game. Every Joe Blow from Idaho is an expert/insider now.

He's been around in the background producing shows like Don Taylor's Sports Grill back in 2000-2001 for longer than you realize. I would say Dhali has been around for at least thirty years but has become more prominent in the market in the last ten or so. He does dig up a lot of scoops.

I don't know if anyone remembers the Sports Grill - it basically replaced Dan Russell's show the year he was let go by CKNW and the year prior to TEAM 1040 going on air - but the news segment was called The Taylor-Dhaliwal Report (with Taylor and Dhaliwal) and it was basically a precursor of what you're seeing now in the Donnie & Dhali show on CHEK tv.

Believing your audience are idiots and catering to that belief keeps me away from local media.
If you build it, they will come.

Apparently a pack of wild Nuckers on twitter have caused Oil's Luke Gazdic to completely melt down.

No more broadcast career for you... NEXT!

Yup, he's revealed himself as a thin-skinned homer numbskull and will never hear the end of it.

Guessing Bieksa roasts him with a short sharp shaft.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
