Default Sports Talk Radio, Texans

I listen to more sports talk radio than I should.

Had a small run in with Josh Innes that exposed me to some really disgraceful radio he is doing. I don't care what he thinks of me, but apparently he cares what I think of his program. I usually do not listen much to him, but if he wants a dialogue on creeper radio, this is it:

My love and hate for sports talk radio

Generally, the solutions to most talk radio is to switch the channel. But when 610 is home of the Texans, it just seems repulsive that we still have this sort of act going on in 2013.

If you have any opinions on this subject, or sports talk radio in general, I urge you to leave a comment there and share the post on FB/Twitter. I know various people at the Texans read my blog, and you never know when you can make a difference with things just by sharing a reasoned opinion on the interwebs.

I was actually listening when he brought up your name and was thinking that guy may not know it, yet, but he's about to get more than he bargained for.

Howard Stern'ism. The gold standard lowest common denominator of creepers. Aspiring to that is, at best, un-original. They already did that routine at 8th grade recess, guys. The balance of it was just kinda mean. If Kate were my sister, I think I would have had to dot a few eyes.

That was one of your best blogs. What's sad is that this guy really believes his own pretzel logic.

Let's call it as it is - 610 has gone to $%^* since Lance, John, and Charlie left. Yes, they have the Texans contract. And Texans fans are worse served because of it. I know squat about radio programming, and maybe straight sportstalk without the lame shtick doesn't pull ratings. It's too bad so much has to cater to the lowest common denominator.

Why would anyone listen to 610 anyway? You've got CP, Lance, Matt and Adam on 790 talking real sports. 610 is a joke - official Texans station or not. And it's not like the Texans have anything to say anyway other than banal platitudes from Shaub or Kubiak.

I tried switching to 790, but it's just not the same (I do listen to Koch & Kalu). I like 610, because during the season they have the most Texans' shows. I like to hear what the players say the week after a game. I know they don't get asked the "tough" questions, & they don't tell Schaub how bad he sucks, but it's better than imagining what they're thinking, like one particular poster likes to do.

However, since the end of the season, it's been more fodder than anything & it gets tedious. I know it's hard for them to come up with stuff to talk about, (I listen to the radio while I'm at work), but that's what they're paid to do. We've got the Texans & the Rockets. A lot going on with both of those clubs. Should be plenty to talk about.

Schaub topics pretty much rule the message board, but that's starting to die down & we're moving on to FA & the draft & there's no doubt in my mind that the people here on this board know more about FA & the draft than those guys do, and I can think of three guys who could put together 8 hours of draft talk & that's not including phone calls.

I refuse to listen to that DB. I cant stand him.

My lineup:
10-12 - ND & Greg
12-3 - Matt Thomas
3-7 - Charlie & Lance

So pretty much, I don't even listen to 610, and Josh is the main reason. He turned me off from the whole station.

I used to be a frequent caller over a decade ago (late '90s) when Rich Lord and Kenny Hand had the best sports-radio show in the city. It was fun calling in every day to talk about the Astros (who were good at the time), Rockets and Cowboys - we had no NFL team during those years.

And I pretty much stayed away from sports-talk radio from 2000 to 2007. And then in 2008, I started to enjoy the David Nuno show on 1560 The Game. And some of the other guys working there all did a great job.

I have not really called into a local sports show since 2008 though. I'm in my early 30's already and sports is just not what it used to be for me. Before I thought it was the most important thing in life, but I guess having a family and becoming a born-again Christian will change a man's way of thinking.

I spend a lot of my day listening to Christian radio.

Thanks to podcasts those of us who are far away from Houston at times still get to hear the broadcasts and "In The Trenches" is definitely my favorite because it so emphasizes Football, NFL football, and especially Texans' Football.
Now Lance is very knowledgeable about football for someone who's not played the game, but in other areas I sorta feel that he's over matched with the brainy and very articulate CP ?
Regarding Josh, the first time I heard him I thought he was a total jerk, but after hearing him another time or two I'm actually starting to find him kinda amusing ? But he's definitely off-the-wall and would turn many off very quickly.

Have you tried streaming? If you go to the station's website, they usually have a "listen live" link & you don't have to wait for the podcasts.

Lance is ok, I don't have a problem with Lance. My issue is that when he says something, people think it's gospel. I've seen a couple of his articles, where he breaks down a play & he says this should happen, or that was supposed to happen & unless he was in the film room with the team when they broke down the tape & developed their strategy, he doesn't know any more than we do.

'76 does as good a job, I think better, because he tells you there are options. A WR have so many options at their disposal, that a DB has to put himself in position to cover the worse options, or the most likely option & use team mates (LBs & other DBS), the sidelines, and such to his advantage.

While there are some that don't want to agree, '76s break down of our secondary in Kj's rookie year was much more accurate than Zeirline's & it's easy to see the step changes from then to now with '76s take. It looked like an impossibility if you followed Zierline's.

& it's the same with the OL, the DL, the LBs.... we don't know what they're supposed to do, but we can evaluate their options & understand why they chose to do what they did. Then decide if it's a talent issue, a brains issue, a scheme issue, a technique issue, a communication issue, etc... The only thing we can't fix are talent issues but you can scheme around them.

Steph, I have listened to talk radio since the days of Anita Martini & programming has deteriorated. It has gone to "entertainment" rather than sports talk. The devolving (if that is a word) is what I call bathroom humor; many think it humorous, but not me. John McClain's side trips into movies moved me down the dial. It reminds me of turning into a news station about 9-11 and the towers then watching talking heads pop jokes & having to watch some "celebrity" tell me what she/he thinks. I want info and debate on sports not Inness crap. I now work from my home which should increase my sports radio time over and above the hour drive to and from work I use to have. Not so. I have tried to listen to Rich Lord as I do have some respect for him, but then Josh I. and his ego came along. Not too long ago, I turned on 610 and heard Innes spouting about how he and Lord had done historical programming and blah, blah, blah. I almost called in but controlled my emotions. He just does not seem to understand that 610's ratings have more to do with Texans' contract than his "brilliance." IMO, Josh Innes is the worst talking head on the radio. Reminds me of a little girl in her first dress running around screaming "look at me everybody. Look at me!"

Personally, I haven't listened to 610 since John and Lance left. It got even worse after that whenever the rest of the guys left. 610 is not only a former shell of itself, it downright sucks!!

I wake up to sports talk, its in the truck when I'm driving, and I listen to sports talk while I'm working. On my alarm clock I listen to it at night when I lay down to go to sleep, come 12:00 AM though, its time for Coast to Coast.
