They wouldnít have an explanation other than its playoff hockey and theyíre teenagers sometimes weird happens. As for them next year as far as I know/knew they donít get paid they do it cause they enjoy it and the team was just good to them and giving them what they got

They’re not doing the show next year?? that’s really disappointing. I know IDTW wasn’t perfect, they weren’t always correct, but, man, it’s all we had! There’s so little OHL coverage out there on TV, and, good or bad, for a lot of things, they were the only source of information. I really hope somebody, somewhere fills in the gap as far as IceDogs and OHL coverage. Was any reason given for them to be stepping away?

Not to brag, but more often than not the correct information was posted here first by the fine members of this Forum.

Yes, it was becoming a strain on their regular jobs and family time. Apparently it took 20 hours a week of their time.

Well it was always a strain to watch them. I am not sure Niagara needs a distinct show every week plus an intermission show for away games too. I actually prefer to get the perspective of the other team when watching an away game and it's bad when IDTW break in. Nobody gets into cable to earn money, you have fun take in a game and get some notoriety maybe. There are better sources including Clark, Mawhood and BPSports, oh ya and HERE!

Only time I saw them during a intermission for an away game (except for commercials) was when they were in the US where they probably donít have intermission coverage

I stop watching their show last year. They did a decent job interviewing the players but I didn’t find any of their other segments useful. Things like their hits and misses, if they still did that, really didn’t appeal to me. The only thing I will miss is their injury updates on Twitter but even that seemed unreliable this year. I think DJ rubbed a lot of people the wrong way as he often came across as being arrogant, especially on Twitter. That might not have been true but it was the perception.

I would love to see someone do a weekly Icedogs show on Cogeco. I think Rod Mawhood would be a good candidate or the 2 guys who run BPsports. They could use the show to promote their website. Or maybe even Clark/Burkholder/Galloway or the two radio guys.
