Role players don't exist in his world. Everyone needs to be a future hall of famer and if they're not, the team is dedicated to winning and the fans are idiots for cheering for them.


He spent weeks, seriously weeks, in March railing on how awful Brandon Sutter is. Then Sutter promptly becomes one of the Pens most consistent players down the stretch and in the playoffs. I mean its one thing to think a guy just isn't that good, its another to pretend like they have no business in the NHL, and Madden was getting into that territory. Of all people too, Brandon Sutter. I just didn't get the vitriol.

I really don't listen to him unless its hockey season. And honestly, hes at his best on Pens radio where he behaves like a normal human being, and his knowledge and smarts are evident. I get the schtick he's built up has made him successful, but the Sutter/Harrison stuff is awful, awful radio. He just sounds stupid.

On the drive home yesterday Madden was busy railing against the Pirates for not spending money and not giving him any players to interview and how he's a true fan and blah blah blah. Flipped over to Da Fan and Starkey was busy blowing smoke up the Pirates ass while railing against people who make their living by criticizing the Pirates for everything they do while referring to themselves as true fans and blah blah blah.

Made me laugh.

The funny thing is that he and Savran are the only one's who ever get any compliments. I guess he wants 100% allegiance.

@MarkMaddenX: I love media msg boards, especially. It's the jabronis, the guys who can't make it, bleating about those who have...while using fake names


@MarkMaddenX: It's 1 thing 2b criticized by peers. But when the guy who does @KDPomp's laundry feels his oats, it's sad. Go brew a fresh pot, stooge.

By that line of argument, sports media members that never played the sport can't critize athletes.

I get that its probably frustrating for sports media personalities to see criticism of them. I probably wouldn't enjoy it either, but I also think its weird how some of them can't take a step back and just view it as what it is, part of their job / position.

-They have a public entertainment job. The "masses" will always state their opinion on individuals who provide entertainment. Its really not different (on a much smaller scale) of stating your opinion of an athlete / actor. For some reason it seems like some in pgh media instead view criticism as a personal attack.

- What's up with the immediate calls that individuals are "jealous" / want to be them because they state an opinion of them?

I don't know, the whole thing just seems strange to me. I'm 26 but I think sports radio has already passed me. I used to love it, I haven't listened to it in about 2 years... I just hate all the shock jock / gimmicky stuff. I always enjoyed listening to shows that just came off as a normal sports conversation between regular guys, because I love to talk sports with friends. The whole media vs. caller / trolling / often times insulting type of stuff puts me off. Must get the ratings though.. such is life.

I'm with you ianmoran. The saturation of football talk and the like has actually made me care less.

Same with hockey, I'll listen to Madden because he's the best, but when it's over I need a break.

I think Chris Dokish may be the most unbearable PGH media person on twitter.

Rossi was on a whole other level of punchability last night before he even opened his mouth. Between that ridiculous get up and his over exaggerated gesture so he could do his glasses tip move, I stopped it right there and changed the channel.

A lot of it for me comes from these guys, and I'm talking about our local guys (the Fan, Trib, Madden, etc) seem to think they have to tweet a reaction to absolutely everything. When these guys can't have a thought enter their heads without putting it on twitter, there will be people out there that disagree and when they can't handle that it turns pretty irrelevant things in big issues.

Like Dejan and the attendance for Polanco's first game. You're telling me he had nothing better to do for the 3 hours that afternoon before the game than to argue with a hundred people on twitter and go on a blocking spree over a Tuesday night attendance prediction? Ever since Dunlap got that interview with Pedro Alvarez a month or so ago he's been super defensive every time he sees Pedro getting criticized. Labeling every one a "Pedro Hater" and having every time he does something right he's "Shutting up the haters." :roll:

The "We're better than you cause we dont criticize" was at an all time high for the media during the Pens first round play against Columbus. Even Yohe was on a high horse. I just can't believe these grown men get so much enjoyment from arguing daily with complete strangers because they don't view a minute sports story the way you do. I think some of them would be a hell of a lot more tolerable if they just put down the iPhone once in a while and realize they don't have to tweet an opinion about every little thing.
