We have a bare bones episode today, sorry for the lack of intro music and a few interruptions. Somehow we managed to talk for about 40 minutes about the game-cancelling incident at Buccaneer Arena, the one game of the week, predictions for next week, current stats and banter about our Thanksgiving/Black Friday experiences.
Episode 16. A Quarter Slate of Games.[ 41:57 ]Download
In this episode we recap the full slate of games from last week, name the three stars of the week and give our predictions for the upcoming week as well as pass on some information from Slap Shot on their upcoming Black Friday specials. We also had an email passed on from a listener/proud D-League Radio t-shirt owner in New York that we read on air. Thanks for sharing the show with your friends/family/coworkers/etc, everyone! We still can’t believe how many people listen to this. Remember to click the Amazon link over there <— when you make purchases from their website to line our pockets. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and see you Sunday (or Monday).
Another week down in the D League and we recap the action and give our predictions for next week….which of course, we always seem get it wrong. Big thanks to Ed Brafford for updating the site and making it look more professional than we really are.

An episode so exciting we forgot to include the intro music!! This week we welcome the Head Official of the DMAHA, Tim Terrill to the show. Ryan Lewellin is out on assignment this week so John welcomes a special guest co-host to D League Radio. You will not want to miss it.
We had some really good, close games this week and one that was, well, not so close. We had a lot of good candidates for our three stars of the week but we managed to narrow it down. The trade deadline for captains is November 6, so who knows if we’ll see any last minute activity.
The shirts are sold out – thank you to everyone who bought one. Tim Terrill will be on the show next week, so send us your questions to be answered on air. We’re also looking at putting up a play-by-play for the Ramblers vs. Rain and Hail game on Monday night.
Episode 12. The Trade Deadline Looms!!![ 50:28 ]Download
Another week of exciting D League action is in the books and we recap it for you as well as name the three stars of the week. We’re now on iTunes thanks to Matt Coleman’s technical expertise (because we have none).
We’ll have head official Tim Terrill on the show shortly, so send in your questions/comments for him to answer to email@example.com or on the blog down below.
We’re eating crow this week as we tip our hats to The Vicious Squirrels in their 2-0 shutout over The Reefers. It was another exciting week of games and we give our analysis on those plus the upcoming week’s schedule. As a bonus treat, we read some of the haikus and comments we’ve received on air. If you have a comment, question, concern, haiku, etc. drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, comment here on the blog, our facebook page or in person. Remember, 5-7-5.
Episode 10. Mr. Nutterbutter's Revenge![ 50:44 ]Download
In this episode we recap the previous week and give our predictions/thoughts on the upcoming week’s games. A handful of Ramblers took delight in letting John know that we called their game all wrong – which is great. We’re glad you’re listening and also glad to see some upsets. That’s what makes the league fun.
We also cover the unspoken policy of stronger players not robbing the puck from newer/slower players. An email went out among all the team captains addressing this after this weekend. When it all comes down to it, this league is all about fun and letting new players develop skills. Basically give newer players a little bit of room and time to skate with the puck. To be more concise, don’t be an asshole.
We would like to hear your thoughts on this issue. Do you have a rule of thumb when dealing with newer players?
A few other things: We’re getting some technical help to put this up on iTunes from D League’s own Matt Coleman (thank you!). Should be there shortly.
Also we have a couple great interviews lined up and will probably be starting doing some broadcasts of games.
…and we’re glad to see that the t-shirts have been a hit. John has them, so drop him a line if you want one. You’ll be the best dressed in the room with one of these babies.
