You guys are WAY good for my ego, I'm thrilled that you love the show.
Here's the deal. Three years ago the Fan was bought by Rogers. My show was effected by the co-hosts changing from TSN personalities to Sportsnet folks.
So here's the conflict. The 11am - 1pm portion of my show is sponsored by Sportnet. Schultize works for their arch rivals at TSN.
They don't want a TSN guy in their slot and I certainly don't blame them. To a degree we're lucky the hammer doesn't come down so we can't use him at all.
We thought of moving the show to evenings, weekends, 9-11am Fridays... but nothing pleased everyone.
THAT'S why Football Friday is only an hour. I'd love the chance to do a two hour show again as well. For the time being anyway, one hour is better than nothing at all.
As for the coaches, Pinball is a weekly guest on the morning show Wednesdays at 8:00, Coach Marshall will be joining me on a weekly basis, we're trying for Fridays, but that hasn't been nailed down yet. I'll let you know when it is.
Thanks again for the kind words.
