I stopped following Madden, because I don't need to see his pr0n star retweets while I'm at work.

I can't believe i'm saying this but i completely agree with what Randy Baumann said the other day. He went on a rant about how there are a lot of sports writers in this town with an elitist attitude boardering on wanting people to worship them. Was saying how these people with over inflated views of themselves need to be quiet and drop the act because in the long run they aren't really that important. He went on to say that we are all replaceable in the grand scheme of things. I'm paraphrasing here but he really seemed to be aiming it at Mark Madden and Mike Prisuta.

Personally, i think you need to have an ego to be successful in life. But when it gets out of control it becomes extremely annoying.

Tim Benz, the 14-year old girl of the radio.

Don't worry, you'll eventually be a real woman.

I get a kick almost daily out of Madden ripping people for defending Geno no matter what. He must not remember every single time he's ever discussed Ben Roethlisberger ever.

Yeah but, Geno doesn't go on his show and Ben used to live next door to Madden so it's okay.

I can't listen to Mark Madden's gurgling Yinzer accent SHAHTING to his listeners. The accent is arguably not the issue, as that can add local flavor (e.g., Myron Cope). But the contempt, condescension, immaturity, and unprofessionalism...I heard him once a few years ago for 15 minutes and couldn't take anymore.

I don't mean to sound condescending myself; I know I'm well-removed from his core demographic.

Isn't Prisuta on the show with Baumann?

Prisuta is awful. NAN likes Prisuta, that's all you need to know. Dumbest guy on radio in this city, which is impressive.

Right around the time of the 2008 presidential election, there was some serious tension between Baumann and Prisuta that was evident on the air. You don't see it as much anymore, but for a while there you could tell that they did not like each other. So I could easily see Randy making that remark and it being partially in reference to Mike.

That's one reason I can't listen to Madden but the main reason reason is I can't get into a rhythm of listening to him when every 8 minutes or so he either breaks for commercial and/or music. Granted he has no control over it but I still don't like it and neither does he which is why he retweets every tweet that complains about music being played on his show.

I like Madden because people take him too seriously and he feeds off of it. The man is pretty funny at times too.

At times, yes your right he can be funny like when he rips into Todd Haley for instance, but alot of times his act can be unbearable.

I will say this though, the guy is a good interviewer and he books some great guest for his show.

Unfollowed Mueller, can't take the NBA tweets. Tweeted about the Heat-Pacers game more than the Pens game, unacceptable IMO.

Its not even his NBA tweets thats getting to me, but everything he says about hockey is just obnoxious sarcasm that only he thinks is funny. I'm waiting for some time when Crosby gets stopped and he'll throw out the ever hilarious "They should trade Crosby" tweets. Because he's the type of guy that will do it. Its just really really weak attempts at humor and he only does it when it relates to hockey. At least try to take a big part of your job somewhat seriously.

That's one of the reasons I don't like him. I don't like all the NBA tweets but whatever, but his arrogant sarcastic tone he has towards the Pens and hockey in general is what really gets to me regarding Mueller.

Hey Guys, Mueller plans on trolling us tonight with his #analysis and nba talk. Get ready for the LULZ!!!

But seriously, pretty obvious someone reads the boards. For a station with ratings in the trash can you'd think some effort would be spent doing something other than mildly agitating what little fan base you may have, just because you know you can. Mueller was probably that kid in school that put his finger an inch from your face and said "Not touching you, cant get mad. Not touching you, cant get mad"

Trolling us as in posting here or on twitter? I have to say I once enjoyed his show when it was on at night. Now he is just a jag.

On twitter. He posted something about covering the Pens tonight and its the playoffs so its serious business. Then just scroll through his replies and he knows what he does agitates everyone, so thats why he does it. If it were even remotely humorous, then okay i guess. I just dont like people who get an ego stroke out of doing things for no other reason than the sole purpose of annoying people. A young guy who had a good reputation in a town of people who are just sick of 90% of its sports media, and he wants to turn people off of him (which is what he's doing) by acting like he's in high school instead of actually covering a sport.

I liked Prisuta before he got removed from the Trib. Now that he just talks sports, it's nothing but his sole opinion.

Look at the past 15 pages of this thread. Nobody cares about the guy doing a good job. Everyone wants to hear/hate/talk about the guy who has an ego or makes fun of listeners.
