Bagoon's Barrage Episode No. 19 (Best Dirty Players of All-Time with Alex Brown) - 4/12/17
Jake Donnelly (AKA "Bagoon") chats with his good friend and Philadelphia Co-host Alex Brown about the best dirty players of all-time and whey Chase Utley deserves some serious mention. The intro is a long-winded one as usual (0:00-4:25) then Brownie calls in for the Call of the Day. The chit-chatting goes on for a minute or two before the pair delves into the best dirty players in hockey (4:25-6:00). Once they get going, the debate essentially boils down to Brad Marchand vs. Sidney Crosby (6:00-8:00). There is a detour as Brownie has to defend Philly for the Santa incident (8:00-10:15). The best dirty players in history discussion gets going in earnest at the 10:15 mark. First hockey where the consensus appears to be Crosby and also involves the role of the pest in the NHL (10:15-21:35). The two then discuss baseball's best dirty player where Brownie goes all-in on Chase Utley being the best dirty player of the current generation and how the Phillies tend to field some of the same players from one generation to the next plus a dive into the new rules in baseball this season (21:40-32:15). Brownie follows up by choosing Lance Armstrong as the best dirty athlete in non-traditional sports (32:30-36:00) before the two come to a consensus that Dennis Rodman is by far the best dirty player in NBA history (36:05-38:45). Bagoon and Brownie finish off the discussion by naming their best dirty players of all-time (38:50-End)
