Madden is hilariously starting to turn on Ben after basically giving him the Sid/Mario God treatment for years. The whole Ben Roethlisberger Show on 93.7 has really irritated him (I also assume it means Ben can't go on any station other than 93.7). By this time next year, Madden will be trying to run him out of town.


Wasn't Madden's God treatment to Ben a result of those two supposedly being neighbors?

It was the best last year when Madden was so far backed against the wall on his Fleury love he had no choice but to criticize him during the playoffs and call for Vokoun. He would literally spout the same things callers said just a week before that he called them morons for saying.

I think it was that and plus when Madden's mom was living with him when she was sick Ben always was nice to her also.

Josh Miller is on the FAN Morning show this morning and it's good. It's probably addition by subtraction because Josh is filling in for Alexander.

He was great this morning. I'll admit to being a fan of The FAN (sometimes because I like it, sometimes because its hilariously awkward like Vinnie and Cook, and sometimes because there just isn't anything else to listen to) but there are definite issues with every show. I think Gianotti does an excellent job hosting the morning show and I've always been a fan of Colony, but Alexander is just grating. The afternoon show is filled with awkwardness and weird discussions and most of the time Miller doesn't seem to give a damn. Today on the morning show he seemed like a completely different person. He was lively and energetic, was forthcoming with his opinions (sometimes Mueller needs to drag it out of him in the afternoon), and was generally funny. Seemed like it would be a good switch.

Miller to the morning show, Alexander to anywhere else that's not on the radio.

Paul Alexander and his drunken fake tan needs to go from the FAN and Root Sports. He's absolutely terrible.

Ron Cook was the worst if the two. He makes the afternoon and absolute snore to listen to.

Can anybody verify if Vinman is on the radio today? If they didn't renew his contract it's probably because he was making the most there (according to what I've read in this thread)

Is this the second or third time Vinnie has been alleged to have been history?

Vinnie likes talking current events outside of sports, and every time he does it drives Ron Cook nuts.
Cook either insults Vinnie, or he pretends to have no idea what Vinnie is talking about.
