    Basically Brando was going off about bloggers (which we all can from time to time considering *ahem* Justice). Anyway, Steph wrote in and let Brando know that not all bloggers are negative in their approach and be humorous, etc., etc.

    Steph can fill in with more detail whenever she logs on.

    Justice is Brando's buddy. Plus...he's a columnist not a blogger. I think the pay scale is a bit different too.

    He's a blogger too. But now that you mention it, I think you're right about Dickie and Brando. Seem to remember Brando mentioning something last week when he was in town.

    Soooooooo, in short I have no idea who the reference was about.

    I'm not sure what blogger he was talking about. I know he mentioned Clay Travis at one point--I like Clay, and I don't think his question to Tim Tebow was out of line. Brando misrepresented the question--it was about Tebow's faith and saving himself for marriage.

    But he was railing against all bloggers as being bad for all of humanity blah blah blah, so I wrote him this email:

    I thought him railing at bloggers was like the elites railing against printing presses in a previous time. But I figure the best way to deal with silly speech is to politely address it with smart speech.

    Nicely stated!!:toast2:

    It is just like other radio or newspaper personalities acting elitist when they put down callers or writers despite many callers/writers seeming to know alot more about sports or sports situations than they do. Just because you are in the business doesn't mean you are good at your business.

    Good stuff TC. Hate to say I didn't hear it live. He sounded like a buffoon in his blogger rant last week.

    I gave the show a chance last week and I didn't mind it so much.

    I finally jumped off on Monday. Listening to "Walk Like a Man" and the "Lollipop Guild" and that god-awful e-mail jingle finally took it's toll.

    Not to mention the "Hey Boy!!!" hotkey and the redneck schtick. Just irritating.

    Now I'm back to listening to "Coast to Coast AM" reruns during the Tim Brando timeslot.

    Sorry to derail the thread. I just had to vent about that show and this looked like the best place to do it.
