How does this station not realize how transparent Filiponi is?

LGP.com got name dropped by Poni today. So clearly he knows he is a board favorite, lol. He talked about RJ tracking the anthem singers.

I don't usually listen to the guy but one thing that irritates me: his inability to clearly say the word "it." Maybe I am being a stickler as a one time radio person but he says it through his nose or something and it comes out "ih." Like he was a valley girl.

This is something my Program Director in podunk Williamsport would have mentioned to me as a point of improvement if I'd done it, and this guy's a pro with a Syracuse degree. Pronounce the "t", bro(ny).


Poni is probably in my top 5 punchable faces.

He was trying to make a big deal with the Dupuis deal today by saying he doesn't understand why they signed Dupuis, but got rid of Max Talbot. Even Alexander was like "what?".


Alexander was sober enough to answer?

Had the pleasure of listening to Alexander's "wake up call" this morning in the shower. I guess Urban Meyer made some comment about Aaron Hernandez, Alexander apparantly approves of the majority of the comment, but then warned Ohio St that they'll be dealing with murderers too cause Meyer only cares about winning. #sourgrapes

Alexander is such a PSU homer. He hates Tressel and OSU and now Meyer with a passion. He really hates Tressel because (I do not recall what Tressel did) of something related to the Adam Talaferrio injury. Maybe running another play too quickly or something after the ambulance left?

I've actually tried to listen the last week + on my way to and from the gym in the mornings, but each time I turn it on the Fan its either at commercial or within 15 seconds of going to commercial. I swear its every freaking time.

My favorite tweet yesterday I saw about the floods was, I think Dunlap said, "Looks like the Lord's willing but the creek still rose."

I'm running a warz game based on the Pittsburgh Sports Media. It's going to be a lot of fun, and the more people involved the more fun it will be. If you've never played before, don't worry because this won't be a normal game and will be filled with surprises and good times.

I tuned into the Vinny and Cooke show for like a minute on Thursday and it was so painful that 60 seconds in, i flipped the station.

From the moment the show started they started fighting. Those two absolutely hate each other and it's just so uncomfortable to listen anymore. I literally can't handle that brand of radio. I don't know if CBS thinks it's funny or that it drives rating or whatever but it has reached the point with me that i simply will never listen again as long as those two are together.

The show sucked before. Now... it's a whole new level of uncomfortable radio.

I think that this thread can be summed up with:

Savran is good; everyone else in Pittsburgh is not.

Tab Douglas is good, Troy Clarity is decent, and I really don't mind Colin Dunlap as much as most of you do. Madden is still king of the city though.

I withhold opinion on him cause I can't understand the point he's trying to make most of the time. Which i guess makes him awful.

You could have told him he is awesome and he would start arguing with you that your point is wrong.
