Schopp and The Bulldog.

Sports talk should be entertaining and informative which is why Mike Schopp and the Bulldog control the WGR 550 airwaves every weekday from 3 to 7 pm.

Chris 'The Bulldog' Parker bleeds Buffalo and is as passionate about the Sabres and Bills as any listener to our radio station. Mike Schopp not only keeps the callers in line and dishes out his own opinions on the Buffalo sports scene, creates on-air fantasy drafts of anything from U.S. Presidents to sports announcers and is the station’s sports trivia expert.

Resident Bills beat reporter Joe Buscaglia and Sabres beat reporter Paul Hamilton appear daily and cover Buffalo's teams like nobody else!

Weekly guests include ESPN's John Clayton Thursdays at 5pm during football season, Rob Ray on weeknight Sabres game days at 4 and Sabres General Manager Tim Murray at 5:30 when the Sabres play at home on Fridays.

Also, make sure you check for Bulldog’s column every Tuesday and Mike Schopp’s commentary every Thursday.

The biggest mistake most sports fans make

Let's say you're me, and your workday just ended so it's time to leave Amherst and head to a bar to your home on Grand Island. You take the same route every evening, so you don't need any GPS direction. And the day was stressful so rather than listen to news or any more sports, you have music on. Read more here:

Conclusion: Conclusions can wait

There they were Sunday, as regular an occurrence here in early fall as the changing leaves: This and that about how this first Bills win is proof that good days for this franchise finally have dawned.

Hot takes disguised as cold truths. And not always so well.

The new offensive coordinator called better plays, they said. The Bills played with desperation, they said. The crowd inspired the

COME ON, Tyrod Taylor

You saw the game, and now you've seen the play. The Bills' first offensive play of the 2016 season has a chance to define it. Read more here:

Schopp: Hard truth about Bills

Well we all know the Bills didn't "win the off-season". Unless the game was stupid stuff, in which case, maybe.

What's it like to be traded?

Even in the low minors Monday wasn't just another game day.

August 1 is Trade Deadline Day in baseball. Big-league clubhouses everywhere have ESPN on, or MLB Network, watching to see who gets moved -- your teammates, your opponents, yourself. Everyone's watching as the 4 p.m. ET deadline approaches, most of all fans wondering if their favorite teams stocked up.

Bills training camp comes around every late July,

How to sign Jimmys

So you want Jimmy on your team, eh?

You're a pretty good team without him. That's where you're starting. Fans are excited for the season, although around these parts, aren't they always? This year's team has some good players and should be scrappy. You'd like it to be deeper though, at least.

The coach is pretty new 'round here, and his defense-first style

Schopp: Murray's prowess put to the test

There isn't a day when I wouldn't want to be a pro sports general manager. It's the only sports job I can think of that I'd trade my job for -- to run a team. The job security isn't so great, but the exercise of maneuvering to assemble the best team possible is enough for me to burn calories just thinking about it. Every avid fantasy sports player probably can

Schopp: Imagining sports as honest

Imagine if instead of saying all that business about how your stadium keeps you competitive, Roger Goodell just told the truth.
