Guys that constantly bash the team get really old to listen to, just like guys that are always positive about the team get old real quick. There needs to be a happy medium, and with guys like Czabe and Mitchell there just doesn't seem to be any middle ground.

Czaban was so anti-Redskins, that his possible exit would actually bring more balance to that station.

Re: Snyder Expands Radio Empire

I'd like if they had guys on these new stations that bring that "medium" to the air. I can't stand Czaban because he never has anything positive to say and I can't stand Larry Michael because he thinks any move the Redskins do is like the best thing possible. The perfect example of that is that joke Bram played on him on Aprils' Fools Day, before that day Larry Michael was all "I don't want Chad Johnson on the Redskins" and then Bram told him that we traded for him and he immediately started talking bout how he loved the move and how the Redskins did the right thing. At least he's a self-admitted homer though, he's always said that's the biggest homer of the Redskins out there lolol.

The Riggins Show has been canceled. This is a pretty big deal to me, one of my weekday afternoon joys was listening to the show. I couldnt figure out what the hell was going on this week. The Sports Reporters officially suck.

I have been waiting for over a year now for sirius and xm to merge, since my car came with a xm receiver. Dream scenario: Merger clears fcc approval, and Riggins gets picked up as a afternoon sports personality

Why would they be on a short leash for commenting on what they and everybody else have seen. Shouldn't the player or players be on a short leash for the things that these guys are being critical about?

Don't hold out too much hope. Riggins has already been fired from Sirius once. He was one of the original hosts of the Afternoon Blitz.

See this is my point. Why don't he just put together a product that people won't blast. Analyst just comment on what they see. Especially when they are rooting for the same team. They are happy when the team does well, and they blast them when they suck. This is a valid reason to fire someone?

Maybe what everybody wants is a Larry Michael Total Access Network.

Somebody who will sugarcoat everything and make listeners and smart football fans feel like everything is peachy, instead of a good straight forward honest outlook.

Damn. I think Riggins probably demands a decent sized salary becuase half of his show was commericals, so i dont know if he would get picked up anywhere else.

Re: Snyder Expands Radio Empire

I really like Steve Czabans morning show in Richmond (we don't get the local show he does). I'm not taking up for him as a person of which i have no idea about. As a show, it's pretty good. He tells it like it is and doesn't sugarcoat it. I think some skins fans get upset at SOME of his negativity. In case you didn't hear...i think his words were..he is giddy of the recent trade for Jason Taylor. He didn't have enough good things to say.

On his morning show he really doesn't talk too much skins so I can't vouch for the local one.

Just to rehash a couple of his takes the last couple years...

Mark Brunell is not getting it done

Gibbs 2.0 is a play not to lose offense that's too conservative

I think that those points were pretty accurate. Say what you want but he is a skins fan, he just tells it like he sees it. That's why they call it an opinion.

That's exactly why I don't like Czaban. He is telling it like he sees it.

Of course, if he were more inclined to research a point before he went off on it, it's possible he might have seen the 16 players or coaches on the 2006 Redskins more responsible for that mess than Mark Brunell, or the fallacy behind debating playcalling -- namely the sweeping generalization that "playing not to lose" actually entails. It's classic sports radio talk. There are multiple ways to win a ball game, and every one of them results in not losing the game.

Technically, there are no standards for sports talk radio, it tends to be a fourm where wacky opinions are thrown out without any sort of fact checking or journalistic credibility. So people know what they are getting when they listen to sports talk on the radio, and generally the hosts know too. It's opinion.

But when a host can't see that his opinion is no more important than anyone elses, then he's an asshole. Steve Czaban is an asshole.

That's exactly my point. The things I heard Czabe say weren't lies. So why hate someone telling the truth or giving an opinion?

Re: Snyder Expands Radio Empire

I seem to recall Czabe saying once that Gibbs chose Brunell over Ramsey because Gibbs and Brunell go to church together. Where was the profound truth in that?

I'm surprised this wasn't its own thread. I have not had the time to listen to the radio and I was shocked to see this happen. I had gotten use to Riggo and his crew, and I felt like they always talked Redskins. Which I know may turn off some people, but come on, this is a football town.

I turned in to the Sports Reporter yesterday, and they were talking about freaking Baseball!!...Why? We have to perennial loser teams in baseball that are not going to go into the playoffs anytime soon. Ugh, I hope they get their act together and start talking Redskins.

Re: Snyder Expands Radio Empire

I am fan of Czabe's show even though I know he's a donkey. At the end of the day the show is entertaining and much of his Skins points are somewhat valid. He also speaks as a fan of the team and I know a lot of people, misguided as they were, had the same suspicion about why Brunell played.
