It was a knock on Keitzman and Fatlock, but he crossed the line in it... also berating those fans who listen to their shows. Basically he said "sports radio sucks and you're an inarticulate idiot if you listen to it".

Thanks but that is only part of it. But here it is for David.




"Sports Talk Caller is ruled by his appetites and inclinations, among them ball – any kind of ball – and the notoriety he believes comes from being heard on the radio. Sports Talk Caller has such a flimsy sense of self that he derives his identity from listening to or being heard on a radio station.

He is capable of detached malevolent humor at the expense of others; indeed, he often relishes these experiences with his buddies. He is typically inarticulate, responding to the talk show host’s most outrageous and antagonistic comments. For his part, the host, who enjoys hanging with Sports Talk Caller and who covets his approbation, seldom talks about issues preferring to stay right on the surface. When he does raise questions he does so most of the time without answering them himself. He more often hollers about what is wrong without suggesting a course of action short of firing someone. In short, he is the ultimate backseat driver who doesn’t have anything to say except that the current driver isn’t good enough.

More often, his talk centers around his obsessions. Irrational obsession is a dominant theme of one Kansas City sports talk show. The show is consumed by a series of unrelated obsessions: the host’s drive to develop a love life, his need to drop names, his dislike or disrespect for one public figure or another, his need for public recognition. Tune in elsewhere and hear another host’s self-absorbed ranting about his favorite college, about conspiracies involving nearly every sports entity, about how he knows things that no one else knows, and so on. Their silly on and off the air arguments about one another resemble two bald men fighting over a comb."

the whole article courtsey of Mighty Mike:

DAWES: "SPORTS TALK CALLER"
Dec 07, 2004, 3:12:31 AM by Media Watch by Rufus Dawes
“For people who like this sort of thing, this is just the sort of thing they like.“
- Liz Braun, movie critic

Movie critic Roger Ebert, in a review a couple of years ago of the dreadful movie, Just Married, referred to one of the protagonists – the husband – as “an example of the emerging subspecies Sports Bar Man.” Ebert’s Sports Bar Man has a direct link to Sports Talk Caller. In truth, he is one in the same.

A normal human being, wrote the British novelist and essayist George Orwell, is a mix of the noble and the ignoble, “of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza.” Sports Bar Man, or Sports Talk Caller, is what Orwell referred to as the Sancho Panza type, who, he writes, covets “soft beds, no work, pots of beer, and women with ‘voluptuous’ figures.” If Mr. Orwell were with us today he would no doubt see the similarities.
Now, this is not to say that every single person who has ever listened to or hosted sports talk radio, or talk radio of any kind, is a complete idiot. Some of sports talk radio can be entertaining to a wide range of listeners, but know who the projected audience is for such programming.

Sports Talk Caller is ruled by his appetites and inclinations, among them ball – any kind of ball – and the notoriety he believes comes from being heard on the radio. Sports Talk Caller has such a flimsy sense of self that he derives his identity from listening to or being heard on a radio station.

He is capable of detached malevolent humor at the expense of others; indeed, he often relishes these experiences with his buddies. He is typically inarticulate, responding to the talk show host’s most outrageous and antagonistic comments. For his part, the host, who enjoys hanging with Sports Talk Caller and who covets his approbation, seldom talks about issues preferring to stay right on the surface. When he does raise questions he does so most of the time without answering them himself. He more often hollers about what is wrong without suggesting a course of action short of firing someone. In short, he is the ultimate backseat driver who doesn’t have anything to say except that the current driver isn’t good enough.

Sport was once thought to bring out the best in people. Sports talk radio does just the opposite. It delights in negativity; it tears down sports institutions and sports people. And it does one more thing: it requires its primary listener, Sports Talk Caller, to pay attention to individuals whose lives are no more interesting than his own.
The opinions offered in this column do not necessarily reflect those of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Peple who do nothing but bitch.

I'm unhappy with the season. I lay partial blame for it on both DV and Peterson. It's obvious now that we did not give Gun the necessary talent on defense to have a balanced team.

Injuries were a part of that, so we'll never know what 16 weeks of a healthy D would look like. All the same, the GM and HC are responsible for the final product.

That said, I'm not going to waste every post stating the obvious, being negative, or assuming it's all one person's fault. It's a team, and this year, the team failed.

I don't see how. I'm not the irrational football numb-nut he refers to. I don't call up a radio station and blather on and on about how I could have done a better job, or how if they'd have done what I wanted we'd be super bowl bound.

Just because someone else does a poor job does not mean that I can automatically do it better. And many, when they voice their opinions, come off like that's what they're saying...
