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.

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.

Hockey holding to its myths


Things are going pretty well this season for the Boston Red Sox. They have 229 runs, averaging 6.0 per game -- both numbers tops in the majors -- and at 24-14 they share the third-best record in baseball.

Boston won three of four over Houston last weekend, including a comeback win Saturday. Down one with two outs in the ninth, David Ortiz tripled in the tying run to force extra innings. In the

The Worst Mock Draft Ever


She's back!

My daughter, Garnet, returns with her third annual hardcore look at the NFL Draft. In 2014 at the age of 2, she culled prospect rankings of numerous draft analysts and ranked them herself (OK, with my help) strictly based on aggregrate results. She would have drafted tight end Eric Ebron for the Bills that year, had they not traded up as they did. (After trading up the best

Five Tyrod Taylor outcomes





How will the Bills handle Tyrod's contract situation?

Here's to Sam Reinhart


The best untold story of this Sabres season, The Year of Jack Eichel, is how good Sam Reinhart is.

You watched Boston University games for the first time to see what Eichel is, and then the World Championships. You spent $300 on his jersey before he skated a professional shift. You (OK me) and Bulldog spent 25 minutes of valuable air time breaking to bits one of his many tantalizing

Another 'exciting' Sabres finish shaping up


Twenty-two games, at least half of which they'll play without Ryan O'Reilly. Five points up on last-place Toronto, with three games this March against the Leafs. Six days to the trade deadline, which probably will set several bottom-dwellers, somehow, back.

We're headed for another dramatic finish in the land of the Buffalo Sabres.

If it's excitement and drama you want from

Like Sabres did, Leafs making wily chess moves


Hockey games can be interesting. They were more interesting years ago but you still get the occasional wild one, a back-and-forth tussle with a scrap or two mixed in.

The playoffs are fun too but that's usually just on TV.

Regular seasons are so lengthy that too often you have matchups of weary opponents comprised of players just trying to stay afloat.

And top teams focused on the

Next up for Sabres: Deadline Day


The playoffs are a near-impossibility, and they weren't this year's mission anyway.No one is talking "tank", which became the buzzword for selling off older players and those on expiring contracts for youth and draft picks, something many teams like the Sabres have done and all teams like them should have. As a state of mind tanking is off the table, but if that's your word

A season's worth of futile finales


WARNING: This article is long, because it should be.

---------------------------------

Sixteen years, no playoffs. Bills fans know it well. Some might wear it as a tattoo, like a badge of honor, if it didn't need changing every year.

The scar of the playoff drought looks uglier if you add that only once all these years (2004) have the Bills made it to their final regular-season game
