Bears Barroom Radio has a champion and his name is Mike North. The Chicago sports radio legend made his second appearance on the network's signature show, Bears 100 Proof, and expressed his admiration for the fun, smarts and debate that is making the show so popular among Bears fans who like mature entertainment.
Here's the Rundown:

A Bears Hour Live without a Draft Dr. Phil rant! That's because there's a positive vibe around the Chicago Bears right now and Draft Dr. Phil only wants to prescribe happy pills. But, there's lot to talk abou tand the Doctor covered several topics including which players need to step up in 2018. Bears Grl handled the traffic in the chat room and Aldo offered subliminal messages.
After taking a brief hiatus the gang is back and talking with Chicago Bears safety Adrian Amos and theathletic.com Bears beat reporter Kevin Fishbain.

Six live Bears Barroom Radio shows this week culminated with a three-hour special recaping the final day of the NFL Draft and the overall performance by Ryan Pace and the Chicago Bears. Draft Dr. Phil and Aldo Gandia welcomed three outstanding guests and interacted with dozens of Barflies in the Chat Room. A great time was had by all to cap off what could be a great week in Bears history.

The fifth consecutive live draft show began 15 minutes after the Bears chose Iowa offensive lineman James Daniels. Later, news broke that general manager Ryan Pace traded back into round two to acquire Memphis wide receiver Anthony Miller. We captured it all and reviewed the selection of Roquan Smith.
Our week-long live audio casts continued on Thursday night with Day One coverage of the NFL Draft with a focus on the selection of Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith.

Unless the Bears trade up in this 2018 NFL Draft the likelihood of the team getting the player most fans covet is tenuous. We decided to have a mock draft to test out the scenario. Here's our rundown with time, show guests names and twitter handles:

A very special Bears Hour Live with Draft Dr. Phil as he and Bears Grl welcome Adam Rank of the NFL Network and NFL.com.
Shayne Marsaw calls in from his vacation and the Barflies participate heavily through social media and the Mixlr.com chat room.
Special shout out to Barfly Jerry Kramer who was the first to reach out to Rank and lure the irreverent football analyst and comedian to Bears Barroom Radio. And, as always we appreciate all of the work done by the Barflies for the Bears Barroom Radio Network and this website.
The Chicago Bears currently have six tight ends on their roster. One of them is second year player Colin Thompson (@ColinThompsonTU ). He joins Bears On Tap to talk about the Bears recently completed Veterans' Voluntary Mini-camp, what he needs to do to make the team and his own podcast: The Not For Long Podcast.
Four hours of Chicago Bears talk and it starts with a 30 minute interview with Chicago Bears defensive lineman John Jenkins.

So much Chicago Bears football to cover and Draft Dr. Phil starts to whittle away at the topics in this episode of Bears Hour Live.
One of the things that inevitably happens during this time of the season is strong debates about player personnel decisions. This week's Bears On Tap saw just that with scouts Danny Shimon and Phil Rainey debating a number of topics. The premise for the show was for Danny to identify four position areas the Bears need to address in the draft and players that could fill those voids. Well, Danny and Phil couldn't agree on much - not even the prioritization of the Bears draft needs.
It got heated, but never personal. Make sure you read the Scouting Reports Danny and Phil are populating the website with. Just CLICK HERE.
Mark Grote of 670 The Score Sports Radio stopped by the Barroom to take some friendly hazing from the guys. Grote is the new Chicago Bears beat reporter for the Score and his lack of tweets about the team irked Shayne Marsaw so last week he was awarded the Smartest Man's bad tweeter of the week award. Grote proved to be a super stand-up guy and we look forward to hearing his reporting on the radio and reading his tweets @markgrotesports.
As always Bears 100 Proof is NSFW.
