They're such a bunch of schlubs, how could anyone respect the local media here.

Pittsburgh radio right now is like buying a new car then seeing that same car everywhere. When an important Steeler gets an injury, all you see are people who have gone thru the same exact thing.

Yeah, I thought he over did it and it was getting annoying but I understand his point. I love when he criticizes the Steelers and he gets killed on radio/fb/twitter with people telling him he needs to just stop covering them then lol. No way could I listen to sports talk radio if I'll I heard was how my team is the greatest no matter what all day every day.

Was listening to Vinnie and Cook when I went our for groceries today. Cookie was very grumpy today at Vinnie for suggesting Batch should play. Cook got irritated at Vinnie, saying he didn't know what he was talking about since he never comes our to see the team practice. Then Cook got angry at a caller for suggesting the Steelers should go out and sign McNabb.

I used to like Ron Cook, but now he really gets on my nerves. He's always grumpy and bitter and gets crabby everytime Vinnie says something, like he feels he shouldn't be on the radio with someone with a lower IQ then him.

Yes, that's Ron Cook. Better than everybody and if it's not his opinion, it's the wrong opinion.

I honestly wonder how much the guy likes his job. With 99% of sports reporters, most will admit without question that they are a fan of the team that they are covering. They might not be the biggest fan, but at least there is a slight rooting interest since they are covering the team. Not Cookie. Dude makes it a point to say that he's not a fan of any team or any player.

One caller today said Wallace has been playing lackluster football. Cook brought up the spectacular grab last week for a TD where Wallace used his legs and thighs to catch it. That's one play. How many have Wallace dropped this year. His fumble yesterday. His failure to get his feet down on that crucial late drive in the third quarter. Failing to layout for a pass on one of the late drives which would have given the Steelers a short conversion attempt.

Don't give me that crap about watching the team practice or not. We're all more than capable of watching games and analyzing what we see with our own eyes.

I don't often agree with Vinnie but he does have his moments. Cook just wants to be ******** all the time. I don't usually keep that station on the dial very long at all. I usually hear their prevailing opinions and move on. Why? Because I know that's all we'll hear them preach to the callers for the next four hours.

Ron Cook was pretty crabby this morning. Vinnie said something about plans for January and Ron waited for after break to belittle him. One day we will all hear a murder on the radio.

Cook will then complain about how much vinnie is bleeding, how much of a pain it is disposing of the body, etc.

This thread is hilarious.

Gianotti (sp?) was good in the evening when he had his own show but he stinks in the morning. Chris Muller is the only show I enjoy listening to. That said, I do enjoy Ron Cooke when he is by himself; much less aggrivated and gumpy. In his defense, I would be very grumpy if I worked with Vinny in this format daily.

What I don't understand - it seems as if most of the hosts are annoyed by the phone calls. Granted the majority of yinzers passionate enough to call these clowns are idiots, but at the end of the day it is your job description.

The other thing I love is the whole "get rid of person 'A' for person 'B' ". Any time a fan calls in and says we should get rid of so and so, they freak out and are like "yea but who do you replace him w/? but who is better?"..... Well thats is why people call in, for YOUR expertise, or a lack of. You tell us.

There is no one in the world who gets under my skin the way Vinny does. In 3 years of listening on and off (miserable) I can honestly say I can count on 1 hand how many times I have agreed with him. Complete idiot who adds zero value to the show.

If i were to win the powerball, I would pay the morning show a large figure not to read Ricky Gary's athlete's tweets.

Some crazy stuff happened on the Vinny and Cook show today. Apparently its looking like Chryst is going to stay at Pitt. Vinnie was going on about how more people should be watching Pitt just because Chryst showed his loyalty by staying while Cook was saying that if a fan likes a product a team is putting out he should go to games, if he doesn't then he shouldn't go (I agree with this argument).

Then Vinnie was going on like a banshee about how he was so excited that Chryst was staying that he will buy season tickets next year and was telling his producer to get the ticket office on the line. I was he was yelling and hollering about Chryst showing his loyalty towards Pitt that he will buy season tickets. I was laughing so hard in my car of Vinnie making a total boob out of himself.

God that show (along with the rest of that station sans Mueller) is so unprofessional. Vinnie doesn't know what he's talking about most of the time and asks like a large child while Cook is so grumpy and gets annoyed when people call in that voice a different opinion that he does.

The show was amazing today. I tuned in right at that moment when Vinny was melting down. I literally thought he might die on the air. He hates Cook so much you can taste it.

Cook was right in his statements though. He was just being a total horse's ass while doing so and Vinny melted down. I actively root for a fight, live on air.
