November 21 2017
Jim Jackson, the Philadelphia Flyers play-by-play commentator for Comcast, calls Satiar Shah and Jawn Jang on SN650 to preview the Canucks visit to the city of brotherly love.

Kevin Clark on Seahawks' flop, emerging favourites, why few head coach candidates
November 21 2017

Kevin Clark, NFL writer and analyst with TheRinger.com, joins Sat Shah and Jawn Jang on The Playbook to debate if there is truly an elite team this season. The league overall is a "great bin of mediocrity" as middle-of-the-road teams duke it out for the wildcard and a few favourites finally begin to emerge. Also, what explains the turnover in coaches? "Eventually there are just not enough qualified candidates."

Is it still the Legion of Boom without Sherman, Chancellor and Thomas?
November 20 2017
Seattle PI sportswriter Michael-Shawn Dugar joins Sat Shah and Jawn Jang on The Playbook to talk Seahawks and interpret the "coach speak" of Pete Carroll and what he's really saying about the health of Kam Chancellor, Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas before Seattle hosts the Atlanta Falcons tonight. Speaking of the legendary secondary that makes up the Legion of Boom, does one of the greatest defenses in modern history need to be rebranded because of these injuries?

November 20 2017
John Garrett, the Canucks' colour commentator on Sportsnet, joins Sat Shah and Jawn Jang on SN650 to assess Vancouver at this early season benchmark. "I did not think they would be as competitive as they have been," he says, making the case the Canucks have been "dogs" over only a few periods. They speculate about personnel changes and suitable forward lines plus what's working on the top line and what the future holds for the Sedins (it's not rocket science).

November 17 2017
NHL insider with TVA Sports, Renaud Lavoie joins The Playbook to talk about the trade chips on the Vegas Golden Knights, and what moves could be made before the end of the year. GMs are looking to pick up "the player" in a trade that cracks a home run rather than just bunts to reach first base. It's NHL trade talk, but the baseball metaphor holds up. On the Nordiques returning to Quebec City, "I don't think they are coming soon."

Sharman on Italy's tears, Sweden's form, Brazil's swagger and Germany as the favourite
November 14 2017
Sportsnet soccer analyst James Sharman joins Sat Shah and Jawn Jang on the Playbook to talk World Cup qualifying and the Italian tears seen around the world. "Italy losing at this stage is almost unthinkable" but their group was deep and after Spain dismantled them, something went seriously wrong. Sweden is also very good, perhaps better since Zlatan Ibrahimovic retired. Elsewhere, Brazil has its swagger back, Germany is threatening to win, and you can never discount Argentina.

Gary Bettman laying groundwork for negotiations but regrets past 'work stoppages'

Sportsnet's Luke Fox joins Sat Shah and Jawn Jang on The Playbook to talk about Gary Bettman's recent comments about contract negotiations with the NHLPA. He dodged questions about his regrets but after being pressed, confessed he does not like work stoppages but sees them as a necessary tactic. The commissioner does not use the term lockout but commented on fact owners shoulder more blame than the players. "It is infuriating from a fans' standpoint and probably from a players' standpoint, too."
