Buffalo Bills 2017 Schedule Released

By steve

Oof this schedule is weak. One prime time game on the road at the Jets and other than that one 4:05 game at the LA Chargers.

All four Dolphins and Patriots games come after Dec which is odd but might be benefital against the Cheatriots assuming they have the division locked up by Thanksgiving.

Bills gonna have win at least two of their first hree before heading too Atlanta and Cinci.

The season will probably end dtarting Nov 19h with games at Chargers at Chiefd then NE at home.

Week 6 bye isnt too bad but not great.

3 December home games will piss people off but at least Christmas and New Years are spared.

7-9 again

Sabres Fire Tim Murray and Dan Bylsma

By Steve

Are we at the nexus of the universe? Is this real life? Corner of 1st and 1st? The Sabres are rebuilding a rebuild? And Russ Brandon is (seemingly) in charge of everything? Hahaha fuck my life.

Wait, maybe Jack Eichel is the GM coach president captain and part owner. I mean he was dafted 2nd overall and finished in 15th and 15th in the conference.

All we can do at this point is laugh.

Terry Pegula is the most confused, incompetent awful in over his head owner that can be imagined. Its not that Bylsma and Murray deserved to keep their jobs per se, but what is the point of hiring and firing people every two or three fucking years?

Russ Brandon is rasputent! He cant be killed! He keeps moving up and down and up in the organization pulling the strings calling the shots. Hiring then firing then getting promoted again, how is this all possible?

WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?

Terry Pegula needs to waddle in front of a god damn microphone immediately and have a thorough plan on where these pathetic organizations are going. But who the hell would even accept a job with this idiot? He goes through personnel like I go through clean underwear.

This is a ship with out a captain crew or clue. It cannot be overstated enough. Terry Pegula has absolutely no idea how to run a professional sports franchise and HE HAS TWO!

There is no easy or clear direction. There are no solutions. We are all fucked.

2017 Worst of Buffalo Sports Media Bracket Final 4

By Steve

The final four is upon us! Its time to determine what two Buffalo sports media personalities are the worst of the worst. Here is the bracket from the Elite 8

6 seed Mike Rodak AFTER A RUN OFF VOTE in overrrrrtime beat out 3 seed Mike Harrington 56% to 44%. Yes after 24 hours there was a literal tie! ESPN's own Rodak has the pleasure of going up against The Buffalo News's much hated Jerry Sullivan.

The cantankerous columnist and unabashed Patriots lover Mr. sullivan demolished Tim Graham 75 to 25. No real surprise there as Jerry is our 2 seed. Rodak v Sullivan will be a battle for the ages.

On the otherside of the bracket will include our 4 seed WGR550 afternoon host Mike Schopp. He had the uncomfortable position of going up against his cohost Bulldog. The vote was close-ish. 61% to 39%.

He has the pleasure of going up against the #1 seed of the tourney, The Buffalo News turd Bucky Gleason! Gleason waltzed into the regional final with 74% of the vote in a clock cleaning of John Murphy.

6. Mike Rodak
2. Jerry Sullivan

4. Mike Schopp
1. Bucky Gleason

Good luck. Voting starts at noon Monday for 24 hours on twitter @WNYwatercooler.

The finals will be Wednesday at noon for 24 hours.
