Sports Radio Griping
Sun Nov 08, 2015 8:36 pm
  • So I spent about 4 years living in the boonies of Nebraska and the only sports radio station I had was Fox Sports. It was by far the worst sports radio I've ever heard. Just horrible.

    So now I've moved to the big city and I have the opportunity to listen to ESPN Radio. And what happens? Dan Lebatard gets the afternoon time slot vacated by Colin Cowherd. Say what you want about Cowherd, but Lebatard is several rungs down on the ladder from him. Oh, and where is Cowherd? Fox Sports radio. ##$$@#$#$!!!!!

  • Cowherd is on a podcast and I think TV. I don't really miss him too much. Pretty full of himself.

    Sports radio has just turned into people whining about their fantasy teams. I'm listening to music more and more lately.

  • I'm stopped listening to music because they stopped playing music. There is a good comedy channel that works well though.

  • I'm an old fart, so when they say "oldies" they are actually referring to me, which was upsetting at first but I've gotten used to it.

  • Cowherd sucks. Fox is worse for having him.

    Incorrect! The first half of the statement may be true but not the second half. Where I lived didn't do Fox Sports for the time slot Cowherd is in, but if it was anything like what their morning show was, Cowherd would be a vast improvement.

  • The only national sports personality I like is Jay Mohr, he's on Fox 850 from noon to 3 here in Seattle. Funny as hell, passionate and always has an opinion, right or wrong.

    Other than that, it's 710 or 950 for the local jocks.

    I can only listen to sportsradio in small doses, and that's the local stuff, and the national shows are much worse IMO.

  • Only shows I enjoy are Dan Patrick and Rich Eisen.

    Though DP gets hard to listen to sometimes because of those god awful Danettes.

    I like Patrick but his ego can get pretty large at times and get in the way of good sports talk.
    On the plus side he interviews rock stars. I've heard good ones with Glenn Frey and Geddy Lee.

  • I do like hearing Arnie Spanier be wrong time and time again. People still bring up that he predicted Denver would be up by 2 TDs by the end of the 1st quarter in SB XLVIII. :lol:
