Re: Sports Talk 980 and the Redskins

I don't pickup 980 in Richmond, but do hear Czaban on 950 and BM on Comcast.

Alot of the critizism is well deserved IMO. When they win the right way they do praise them (like last year). But let's face it this organization has made alot of mistakes and does things differently than the 30 other teams around the nfl. So, when things go wrong they are going to take heat.

Don't get me wrong, we played well Sunday, but we could have easily lost that game. We recovered 4 fumbles in the 1st half & got redeemed by a BAD call on Peppers. Hey we get bad calls all the time so we'll take it. I'm all for calling it like it is and not sugar coating anything and i think that's what these guys do. Remember that they are all skins fans who want to see something good.

Re: Sports Talk 980 and the Redskins

Mitchell has talked on the air how he was pissed when the Skins let him go. I guess he felt he shoulda been one of those guys like Darrell Green who stayed with them for his entire career. He needs to get over it. I think it does sorta make him rip on them more because he sorta chews on that resentment he felt when the skins delt him to philly.

Totally kidding, but instead Czaban used it as an opportunity to call Gibbs a quitter whose heart wasn't in the Skins, etc. etc.
I remember that mess. Gibbs made a totally innocent comment in jest, and dopes in the media ran with it. Totally ridiculous.

Re: Sports Talk 980 and the Redskins

I listen to both online occasionally. I'll take 980's occasional critisism over Larry Michael's constant ass-kissing any day. XXX is to the Skins what Fox News is to the White House.

Re: Sports Talk 980 and the Redskins

Maybe the Sports Talk 980 group feel the same way about the Redskins that Dr. M L King Jr. felt about America. Dr. King once said [QUOTE] I critisize America because I love her, and want to see her stand as the moral example for the world [UNQUOTE] Maybe they're critical because they want to see the Redskins provide that staple for the NFL.

And to think they gave AA 10 mil. I'm wondering if the negative commentary has to do with Snyder's new radio station?
It must be nice to have blind faith sometimes...

Re: Sports Talk 980 and the Redskins

980 talk trash becasue they know it is the only way anyone will listen to them as they don't have the access triple X hs to the players and coaches ... kind of like a washington post attitude .

If the Redskins were 11-0 right now they would still be reporting Clark only wanted 1.5 million bonus and all the bad things on the team or they would say nothing.... Brian Mitchell is more of a Sally Jenkins of the broadcasting world

Re: Sports Talk 980 and the Redskins

They are always negative not because they are great truth seekers, but because that's what the general public thrives on. Great evaluators (as has been pointed out already) give you both sides with no bias.

I think Walker over the years has been very honest (until recently when he bought into the station vs. team garbage) if not overly macho at times. Mitchell is 95% negative and a know-it-all. He seems bitter, but gives some good insights, if you can get through all the stupid ones first. Czaban is an opportunist, he seems to try whatever he thinks will advance his career. He is pretty good 80% of the time. I heard him Wednesday morning getting personal in his negativity though. He will stretch the truth when it suits him.

I like team coverage that will get negative when it is warranted, but don't give one sentence of positive and then 2 hours of negative. And don't pretend like you have all the answers and the team are morons. Report the facts, comment on the facts, don't exaggerate, and don't get personal.

Re: Sports Talk 980 and the Redskins

they're negative because the skins are a losing team with some serious issues. if they were 11-0, they'd spend all day talking about how badly they'd beat the next team.

if the skins were lucky to not lose any of 4 fumbles, got a junk call, and a subpar game by delhomme, then how is stating that being negative (as oppoed to being objective)?

If they were 9-2 they would still be criticized regularly. Here's an example: FOX Sports - NFL - Criticism bewilders Urlacher, Bears. That's what the media (not just sports) does, because that's what people are drawn to.

their QB play has been inconsistant enough to warrant that though... as for urlacher being over rated and such, i'm not really sure where that's coming from.
