Trash it!

Summary of relevant portion for those who are only tuning in to hear an opinion on Burke going to the Flames:

-Burke is good because of... past history (in a very general sense).
-Flames are "irrelevant". They neither suck or rock, which sucks.
-Feaster looked superfluous at Burke presser, but he always looks superfluous.
-Flames have drafted poorly recently because... Jankowski and Poirier. Maybe. Or not. (They briefly mention it's too early to tell before complaining for a couple minutes anyways.)
-Feaster sounded dumb for being bullish on Poirier, but hey, GM's are supposed to sound bullish on players they just drafted.
-No explicit opinion on whether Burke will help or not, but they claim he makes the flames "relevant".

Okay, I know this stuff is harder than it looks, but I really didn't care for this podcast guys, or at least the first few minutes I actually listened to. You spent more time equivocating than expressing clear arguments and far more time bashing the Flames than equivocating. Who would actually care about listening to this? Hint: fans of the teams you talk about. If you don't have anything interesting to say and don't mind spending a lot of time saying very little, at least don't insult the team your listeners tuned in to hear about! Do your homework and know your audience.

Verdict: Would not tune in again.
