View Full Version : Joe Texan Hangs It Up X 2

I was listening to Radio 610 at about 5:45 pm when I heard one (I don’t know one from the other, I think it was Rich Lord) of the two announcers being as disrespectful to one of our own as I’ve ever heard....comments directed about Joe Texan. No matter what you think of Joe, one thing you can’t deny..........he breathes and lives and works hard for our beloved Texans. The announcer belittled Joe’s plaque hanging in the Hall of Fame. If that wasn’t enough, he made belittling sarcastic comments about Joe’s drinking habits, after Joe told him he doesn’t drink. Joe put out a great deal of effort for the aforementioned honor. And as for the latter, unless things have just again recently changed, Joe has indeed chosen to now appreciate life and have fun without the help of alcohol. A disgusting display of an announcer who is so full of himself that he fails to occasionally look at himself in the mirror.............for someone who the only thing he has a chance of hanging at the Hall of fame is in the coatroom.

Sorry to hear that.

Congrats Joe on the ability to enjoy life and have fun without drinking. That is a huge challenge for a lot of people and I am sure it isn't easy with it being all around you (during tailgating, events, etc). It can definitely take a negative toll on your health. Someone mentioned to me a couple of weeks ago that you decided to not drink anymore. I admire you for that.

610 is still on the air?? I haven't listened to that station in over a year.

Rich Lord is a *********. I don't know why he doesn't follow his true love and get him a radio gig in Nashville.

Rich Lord is a dumbarse...always has been. I missed that call but did catch him saying that Alex Van Halen plays bass for VH.

Why he is still on the air is beyond me.


P.S. Bruce Springsteen sucks!

I really admire Joe for making the choice awhile back. It's not something that comes easy I'm certain.

As for Rich Lord...if he's all that 610 has left to offer, I won't be tuning in anytime soon. I'm glad I didn't hear the show...my car might have started driving itself to the station. :texflag:

Okay I know of Joe Texans on this site. Cool guy! However, does he have some sort of personality of a fan outside of this site where people know him?

So, he was on the radio station today, and they blasted him? Why?

It's not nearly as bad as some are making it sound.

Here's what actually happened.

Joe called the station and said that Rich Lord needed to stop drinking, because Rich said something about how the Texans could have easily finished 7-9 last season because of the Jacksonville game where the Jaguars had nothing to play for... which is actually true. It could have easily been a different outcome had the Jags needed the win for a playoff spot.

Anyway, Rich then said that Joe was the one who sounded drunk. Rich of course has ZERO knowledge of Joe's battles with alcohol (nor do I) - he was simply saying back to the person that accused HIM of being drunk - that Joe was the one who sounded drunk on the radio.

After that, Rich belittled the Hall of Fame plaque, which he didn't know about, and again - nor did I. He basically said the plaque wasn't a big deal, but in that smarmy way that he says things.

I think you guys are severly overreacting. I don't even think Joe would be mad at Rich. It was just kind of a weird exchange, and nobody brought up being drunk but Joe himself. Is Rich supposed to know to the history of TexansTalk.com message board posters?

You can call me names all you want, but that's what happened.

I'm in no way refuting that... but in this case, his biggest crime was belittling the HoF plaque, not making light of any sort of drinking issue.

Rich Lord has made statements in the past about Joe and his drinking. He had asked them to stop and they have ignored him.

I don't know why he called them back. Who would have guessed that Rich Lord was still on the air?

Maybe Joe should have said he was on drugs.

I am not sure what 610 would gain from putting down a Texans Ultimate Fan, a Hall Of Fame honored one at that, for any reason. It seems that as a station that carries the Texans games and takes in a lot of money doing so, they would sing praises. It also seems that Rich Lord is still employed by the Texans and he would see the devotion and passion that Joe exudes on an everyday basis is a benefit to his show and the Texans. His continued trashing of Joe Texan is further proof that he is either jealous or he must have done some bad acid during one of his weird roadie-like Springsteen exursions and never quite recovered.

Joe has done a lot for under-priveleged children and has helped raise a lot of money for various charities in the past. He continues to try to devise more ways of helping people in their struggles and would give the jersey off his back if Rich Lord or anyone who needed it. We shouldn't feel sorry for Joe...he will be fine but I think we should let Rich Lord know how we feel and how his continued bashing of Joe is getting older and harder to bear than his Springsteen stories.

I know Rich can't know about every fans struggles but I still intend to e-mail him to let him know my thoughts and to ask him to tone it down again. Here is his e-mail if you decide to do so as well.

I hate to tell you, but Joe's comment of Lord being drunk was in the context like "what are you doing, drinking Kool Aid." He wasn't seriously accusing Lord of being drunk. Lord, is very familiar with Joe Texan and his past "habits during tailgaiting and games." When Joe replied "I don't drink."
Lord came back "SURE, he doesn't drink." Lord's intentions were indisputably
foul..

I don't know Joe Texan or Rich Lord, but radio announcers always try to stir up people by poking fun where they can.

Theres a difference between aggression and playful teasing. Obviously I can't tell since I don't live in Htown and cant here the exchange, but insulting listeners is something I think almost every radio announcer I've ever heard does. Has anyone ever listened to the Rome show?

Huge difference here. Rich Lord has done this before to Joe. Lord is an arrogant, pompous dolt. When Rome makes fun of people, it's usually in good humor, with the d-bag Rich Lord it can be mean-spirited...

I know exactly what the context was. Of COURSE Joe didn't literally mean Rich was drinking. You don't think I knew that? In the same way, Rich wasn't calling Joe an alcoholic. He was just returning fire back at him! Rich Lord has no idea who Joe is. He hosts a radio show in Houston and has for years. He doesn't remember every person he's talked to or about over the years. There wasn't any malicious intent at all - he was just calling someone drunk who first called him drunk. God you guys make it sound like Rich Lord has some sort of agenda to personally attack a guy that he doesn't know. Even if he DOES know that Joe has a history with booze, he was just taking a jab. He wasn't saying "listen here - this guy is a longtime drunk and he's still a no good longtime drunk! Don't believe him when he says he doesn't drink anymore! He's a liar and an alcoholic!" It's just not the same thing.

The plaque thing - that's something else. He did belittle it, no doubt. But to make this about the alcohol thing is a HUGE overreaction and you're making something out of nothing.

If Joe had instead said that Rich sounded like he was smoking crack, Rich would have said "YOU sound like YOU'RE smoking crack!" If he would have said Rich sounds like an *****, Rich would have said "YOU are the one that sounds like an *****."

Haaaarrrgh. I hate that I'm forced to come off like I'm a LordLover... which I'm not. Hell - I'm the one that emailed yesterday to argue with him over how the Texans also had a lot of starters out in that Jacksonville game that started this whole thing - but he wasn't trying to assassinate Joe's character.

I would accept that from 99% of the radio hosts here in town BUT not Rich Lord... As stated before, he is a pompous, self-righteous, carpet bagging dolt. PERIOD!

Yeah, I clearly was wrong about how much Rich knows who Joe is - but that really doesn't change anything to me. Direct character assassination? That seems a bit severe, but whatever. I don't know Rich and I don't know Joe and honestly I don't give a rat's ass one way or the other... I'm just typing what I heard, without any emotional attachment to Joe or Rich or anyone else.

True, but Joe has asked several times that the station NOT talk about him that way. He let them know that he has a business with that name as well.

If Rich Lord had some marital or health problems, I don't think anyone would be making fun of him....much less on a radio station.

Alcoholism is a disease and is not a funny issue, especially if someone (Rich) knows about a problem and mocks them on air.

I'm sure Rich has read this board and Joe hasn't been afraid to voice his opinion regardless of who it was hurting....stuff works both ways you know. If you dish it, someone will finally dish it back. I'm not a Lord fan so I'm not taking his side on this one since he should have kept his mouth shut when it gets personal (as far as an on-air personality goes). imo of course.

Slander?? Seriously gtexan, but Rich Lord what he deserves from his detractors...

slander

A type of defamation. Slander is an untruthful oral (spoken) statement about a person that harms the person's reputation or standing in the community. Because slander is a tort (a civil wrong), the injured person can bring a lawsuit against the person who made the false statement. If the statement is made via broadcast media -- for example, over the radio or on TV -- it is considered libel, rather than slander, because the statement has the potential to reach a very wide audience.

You can call me names all you want, but that's what happened.

Yeah, I gotta agree that the Texans could have easily gone 7-9. Take away those two kick-off returns for TDs against JAX and you have a very different game. On the topic of the Texans and this season's expectations, this is the first year I cannot predict anything with some degree of confidence. I can see the Texans going 5-11 to 12-4. Maybe we'll see something in the preseason to better predict?

On the topic of Joe Texan. I met him once in Oakland a couple years ago for the Texans/Raiders game. Definitely a cool guy but can sling out the zingers. You start something or subject, you got to be prepared to have it thrown back at you. So if Joe Texan brought up the drinking comment first, then the response is fair game.

Another point, which I think somebody already said, you put yourself out there, stuff like this happens.

Honestly, I've seen more heated exchanges between Joe and others in the NSZ...but I suppose that's the case about keeping things 'in family' as opposed to some outsider yanking chains.

But both Joe and Rich are big boys and can take whatever is dished out, as they give it as easily as they receive it.

I enjoyed meeting Joe at an All Access a couple of years ago (even though he still won't accept my friend's request! ;) ), and Rich Lord has never bothered me when compared to some of the other radio personalities in our city.

Glad to hear that Joe has quit the fire water, though. That's the best part of this thread! :thumbup

Hello all,

The thing I must first do is thank all who have sent support my way as it is greatly appreciated.

I have had several confrontations with 610 and all have been about them trying to belittle me and saying I am drinking. I have warned them to watch what they say but they do not and that is why they are you know just 610 radio. They could use a little professionalism but I am sure they do not know what that is. I will be talking with the radio station but that is my business.

Meanwhile I am in Sandusky, Ohio, at a friends house who also has a plack(SP) in the Hall and is a Browns fan, I will be returning to this house when our Texans come to clinch the playoff birth by beating the Browns in Brownie Stadium, I will be sitting in the dog Pound.

I leave tommorow to Canton for a weekend with all of my friends at the PFUFA. That is the group that I belong to and the group that I got Ted and Billy into this year. We will get up early saturday and board the 12th man float for the Hall of Fame Parade, 5th largest parade in america. after which we throw a tailgate for children, we are expecting 500 children this year. After which we will have our own tailgate and enjoy each others company.
Sunday we will go tailgate before the Hall of Fame game. We will return on Monday so Rich can put that in his pipe and smoke it, or his cup and drink it.

I know you guys and Gals have my back and I truly am touched to see how yall came out to help me. Thank you to each and every one of you for your support.

Hello all,

The thing I must first do is thank all who have sent support my way as it is greatly appreciated.

I have had several confrontations with 610 and all have been about them trying to belittle me and saying I am drinking. I have warned them to watch what they say but they do not and that is why they are you know just 610 radio. They could use a little professionalism but I am sure they do not know what that is.

Glad you all made it safe :diapher: . How much did you end up raising for the children that you will be donating from the Texans fanbase?:texflag: We want a ton of pictures of the contribution and all the others especially Kat's toes because I have already seen Tedc's :scarygirl:

Its not like Rich Lord being wrong is out of character! I am a long time sports talk fan and listen to more than my fair share in cities around the nation and I rarely here hosts butcher the facts of any sport like Rich. He often times has no idea a player has left a team and moved on or even retired. That may be ok for the common fan but for a guy who maskes hos living talking sports I would expect more.

He is a HACK!

Okay, well - I know I'm the bad guy here, but I don't really see how upset you can be with 610, Joe, when #1 - you placed the call and, #2 - you called him drunk before he ever put it back on you.

If you've had such a long and acrimonious history with 610, why did you call and immediately bring up drinking before they did? Sounds like you were looking for a fight, to me. When you do that, seems like you should have thicker skin and not be so outraged since all the guy did was repeat back to you what you said to him. Just my two cents.

Anyway, I'm not personally attacking you - I don't even know you... but I heard the "incident" and I don't buy that you were somehow victimized.

Have fun in Canton - I know it sounds like I'm being a jerk, but it is pretty cool that you have a plaque in the Hall. I'd be there every year too, that's pretty awesome. Honestly, have a good time.

You have stated your case, and you asked Joe to state his case, and so he did!

You said you ain't sure of either side, just wanting to be in the middle.
And now you come back and change the tone.
Sounds to me like you're looking for a fight (see how it works?)
Because I really don't want to attack you personally either!

Sorry, but you're doing the same thing you said the other person shouldnt be doing.

And as well you said, you throw something out, you get it back.

Now, whatever I say here is only YOUR two cents.
I hardly know Joe enough, nor do I know you.

I just read about the "incident", and I don't buy that you're a bystander seeking for truth. (I'm still repeating you here.)

And definitely by now, you'd think that I'm over-reacting, hey, it's just swell in your book. Uhmm, can I say that you are over-reacting?

You keep on saying that peeps should chill down, or didn't you?
What I want to know!

To answer your question - I'm not really sure why I'm still on it. I know it's a losing battle... I just didn't see any victimization there. I guess I was hoping JT would come in and say something like "thanks for all the positive thoughts guys, but it's not really a big deal."

I'm not a "bystander seeking for truth." I just think you guys are making a mountain out of a molehill, as my mom used to say. It's not like I'm angry or anything... just callin' it like I see it. It won't be the first or the last time that I'm virtually alone in my opinion. :D

As far as Rich goes, I will shoot him Double Rods (real double rods) whenever I stop by their booth outside Reliant in 8 days.

Who the F still listens to 610 with 1560 around?

My current schedule only allows me to listen a couple of hours a day, and so far the afternoon show on 1560 hasn't grabbed me.

Also, since camp started, they've been on location at training camp, so that keeps them talking almost 100% Texans football (until the Artest trade).

I do much prefer the 1560 morning show, but right now I'm not able to listen to it because of how my stupid day is structured. Plus - since I'm in Austin, everything depends on the quality of the stream, and both of them have their issues.

I listened to 610 certainly for the first time in it's current form the day after this thread got going and I see what you mean. Those guys don't shut up!! I know it's their job being on the radio, but there is such a thing as talking too much if one chooses the unnecessary path.

I mean, when they are making a point and they seem to stumble upon factoid after factoid that must be included to impress as they speak and you feel like you are listening to Rosanne Rosanna Danna, only this time you are not amused.

One caller began and unknowingly ended his call with, "Quick question and I'll hang up and listen." :wacko:

1560 might not be all sports all the time ad nausem, but they have fun and they do know what they're talking about on sports (if you just ignore Richard Justice's presence). For all things football, I think Lance Z. is the best in town. They always have good guests. The only thing 610 is good for is Jim Rome, and he sounds like a broken record more often than not.

DiehardChris
08-01-2008, 02:19 PM
I agree on Lance Z. By far the best in Houston. I wish they would save their shows as podcasts so I can listen when I'm able to.

1560's signal is crap. What little I have been able to hear, none of their programming interests me at all. I'd rather hear the blather of national sports talk radio than the rejects* at 1560 (even more so now that I've learned that Dick Justice has found a home over there). JMO

When 1560 added Richard Jerkice, I changed the dial. Never cared much for 610, to much crap talk. 790s ok, but not enough football talk. As for radio, we are scre*ed!!! I pretty much channel hop.

I am sorry to hear this happened to Joe. I just sent the following letter to Rich in support of Joe and all he has/is doing... I hope others will look to Joe with a sense of pride as well!!!

Subject: Input on comment over 610 Radio

Rich,

I just heard about comments that had been made regarding one of my friends and a fellow Blue Crew Tailgater (Joe Texan) that you had made over the radio. I don’t know what has influenced your thoughts and views of Joe, but I would hope you are open to other views and perspectives on him from other people.

I have known Joe since the first Texans game, and I will admit that I had my own mixed feelings about him at first. Then I got to know Joe as a person.

Over the years, Joe has had his ups and downs, and I know (as well as others) that he had his down moments especially when alcohol was involved, and yes, that lead him to get on some people’s nerves as well. I know this too… I am not making any excuses for the guy. These are the facts.

My first impressions of Joe was a loud-mouth ***** who might have had some screws loose and drank too much. But I do admit that I did enjoy meeting someone who had no problems supporting this Houston team. That was the first positive thing I observed about him. Then I got to know Joe away from the alcohol, and got to know him as a person. The way he volunteered every Christmas to help assemble bikes for kids in need, going to Canton, Ohio and handing out all kinds of toys to the kids there, as well as many other activities he has participated in.

I found out that Joe has a great BIG heart and cares for his fellow fans and friends. I know there were times he had consumed more alcohol than he needed to (heck, almost everyone I know has been through this, including myself has done this), but I have to let you know that the alcohol element is no longer a factor with him. As of December, Joe has made the decision to stop drinking, and hasn’t touched anything since then. I don’t care who you are, but that is a hard thing to do, and that has increased my respect for Joe.

I don’t know if this will change your thoughts or views of the guy, but I am asking that you give him a break and help support his decision to be a better person and a better fan for our Houston Texans.

I own my own successful business, which requires me to be presentable to everyone I meet, as well as the people/friends I am around. I am proud to have Joe Texan as one of my friends.

I try to be friends with everyone, and I try to look at everyone as a good person until they prove to me they are not so good. Why? Because I know that is the right thing to do.

Please at least give him a chance to show what he is capable of doing.

Thank you!

I've had my share of run-ins with Joe in the past where he has been somewhat belligerent due to alcohol, but I'm very happy to hear he is making the change in his life that he is. I think overall he is a good guy. Here he is going to work at our (1560) Christmas party last year.

I have got to meet Joe many times over the past couple of years. He would come into the store I worked at on occasion to buy supplies for his business. We always talked Texans and I thought he was a cool guy. I don't know Rich Lord personally, but I don't listen to his show because it is very sub-par to me. I mean, he's a freaking Giants fan! And his sidekick is a 9ers honk! What are they doing on the radio in Houston? I hate listening to radio guys who don't support the local teams (although, Matt Jackson is a Rockets fan). Anyway, Rich Lord is an a-hole if he said those things about Joe, especially if the guy has changed his life and is not drinking anymore. That's phenomonal!:yes: Ignore fat blowhards like Rich Lord. Better yet, change over to the Sean & John show on 1560. Those guys are insane!

This thread keeps popping up


I am fine with Rich and Have never been angry with any of the Talk show people except John McClain, I have since gotten to know John a lot better than I did and we have created a great friendship over my dislike for his love of the Teetons. This is all of my business and I do not need to explain to any of you but as I have already said I am very touched at the support I have recieved from a lot of you. Since it is such a shock to everyone I will state:

I quit Drinking because I am Joe Texan the #1 Texan Fan and not Joe Texan the guy who always drinks. I do not make a very good role model for all the kids I see with a beer in my hand. I am committed to being the #1 Texans fan untill I can no longer walk through the doors at Reliant or any other stadium in the future. Heck My tombstone will be a Texans Logo.
I look foreward to each and every game and am committed to arriving early and leaving late. I invite each and every one of you to come out to B-2 in the Platinum lot to meet me, eat good, and join me inside for some good football. The Piniata is alway a fun experience.

DiehardChris I have nothing against you or your questions, I respect the fact that you are as diehard a fan as I am.
I have many people on this board who know me very well and I especially appreciate thier respect and support.

Go Texans
