Bennett talks CFL, Argos and future fanbase: 'Help Toronto help itself'
November 23 2017

Sportsnet's Donnovan Bennett calls in from Ottawa to talk On Point with Perry Solkowski and Randip Janda before the 105th Grey Cup kicks off Sunday. He talks awards and how much support there is (or isn't) for the Argos in Toronto. "On any given day, you may see more Marlies jerseys." Win or lose, the franchise will benefit next year from new investments but still must appeal to younger generations.

Ryan Biech follows the Canucks prospects for Sportsnet 650 and he calls in to On Point to chat with Perry Solkowski and Dan Riccio.

November 13 2017
Victor Montagliani, the president of CONCACAF and East Van native, joins Perry Solkowski and Dan Riccio shortly after Italy drew today against Sweden and failed to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

"One of the reasons soccer is the greatest sport on Earth is because of these situations."

Sportsnet hockey reporter Iain MacIntyre joins Perry Solkowski and Dan Riccio over the phone to talk about the Canucks road trip and their perpetual struggle on special teams. The Sedins deserve to be on the power play, but it's time to separate them. "They are all in on what Travis Green wants to do." Besides that, he doesn't see the twins returning to Vancouver next year. They're not scoring enough, their minutes are dwindling, yet they are loyal. "They will stop playing when there are nine forwards better than them." Now there isn't. Next year there could be.
