Wasn’t really a good fit for tsn. I think he can probably do his own thing, be his own boss. Build out his podcast more and some other platforms.

So he's in Vegas now working for some online gambling company? He had it good here, visiting Vegas is fine but working there is different matter altogether. It's cutthroat there especially someone who needs to hustle just to make his living.

She's got the voice of a waitress who's worked in a smoke filled bar for 15 years.

He was entertaining when interviewing players but was a fish out of water when TSN tried to diversify his role. It's crazy how natural and confident he appeared when doing comedic bits but then would be nervous and ineffective in serious roles.

He’s actually working for bleacher report the sports gambling division. With legalized sports gambling gradually being approved in America I would say it’s a smart business move.

Happy for Cabbie! He definitely has his own style when it comes to journalism, BR will DEFINITELY provide him with the platform to present fresh and new ideas.

He's like the Guerrimo from Jimmy Kimmel, but with sports.


Guillermo is funny. Cabbie is more like Jimmy Kimmel in my opinion. Cliches and obvious jokes.

But Cabbie seems like a good guy, just not funny to me.

Shout out to his man D. Made it with a decade together. I guess B didn't survive.


I still have the ending of his Score segments stuck in my brain.

Wow he really looks like he belonged at TSN, just missing a moustache and could have been doing hockey games. I stopped watching tv years ago so this isnt on my radar, but what I do remember of him from the Score i hope to see more of him on the internet. A Basketball show would be cool.

Cabbie never really went anywhere at TSN, he is in a niche (comedic sports journalism) that has been replaced by your average Instagram troll. I am glad that he left for his own sake because his career wasn't heading in a good trajectory. Wish him all the best.

His style has no longevity, its suitable to younger hosts. THis guy has to be around 40 now, it doesn't work at his age. TSN isn't a great fit for him either.

I love cabbie, I don't understand all the hate....
His score stuff was by far the best content. Felt like TSN handcuffed him a bit.
