    Episode 077 - Consider the can of worms opened

    Yes, there's a struggle in the Steel City as the owner of the Bulldogs battles city council…but that doesn't mean the team is about to move to a new market. Or is it? Farwell and Pope debate the debacle in Hamilton and also speak with a current owner who did re-locate his team. Plus, we've ignored it long enough. It's time to talk about the second-hottest team (by mere percentage points) in the entire OHL. There are enough opinions in this episode to offend, and then offend again.

    With a week to go until the deadline, everyone around the OHL is talking trades. So why should Farwell and Pope be any different? The guys look around the league and discuss the teams most likely to add, and the teams they find the most intriguing as January 10th draws near. Plus, an OHL GM who thinks this year’s trade season will be “active” joins Farwell and Pope to talk about why he thinks that’s the case, and what’s on his own wish list. And there’s a best-dressed coach in the OHL but did he set the bar too high to end 2019? Have a listen for this week’s answers.

    The man who was involved in what was arguably the most interesting trade in OHL history now takes over as GM of a struggling club. How does he return that club to its former glory?
