To be very clear, I wish all race hucksters and checkmark liberals the slowest, most painful descents into eventual suicide. Goff is just one of millions, and I sincerely hope today was the first step towards that eventual bottom.

Just a regular guy here - totally normal!

I like how how they all only compare Jason Goff to Jonathan Hood and Laurence Holmes like old white guys talking QB's or white NBA players.

Really feeling my age today. If this were 5-10 years ago, I would've spent hours irony trolling that site.

Spiegel and Parkins seemed to be coming around and it was much better than Kapman and Carmen and Jurko. Parkins and Mac sounds terrible.

Any site that spends that much time on a daily basis breaking down intricacies of each day's sports radio programming is bound to be full of some really weird cats. That site has always been extremely bizarre. Good to have when the big events go down though.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

I came across their 2016 WS thread and skipped to the 8th inning of Game 7, quite the read.

The board seems pretty Sox fan heavy as a result of them carrying the Sox games for so long, so I'm guessing it reads like a WSI thread.

I'm glad I'll be able to get my Canadian fishing reports again.

Can't wait for Mike North or Murph to come back. Although those bridges appear to be far more burnt.

So if I heard right, there's a new guy heading the score who is friends with McNeil so he basically shook everything up just to get him back in the afternoon slot? That seems like a brilliant idea.

The Afternoon slot was doing awful against Waddle & Silvy, can't imagine this changes anything though. No clue why they broke up Spiegel & Parkins though. They were killing it against Kapman and Carmen & Jurko. I wonder if they could have held their own against Waddle & Silvy with more time together.

If B and G were getting crushed then I suppose this makes a bit more sense. Still doesn't mean I'm not switching over to npr full time.

If it was Mac that orchestrated this, I'm surprised that Spiegel got screwed over...I thought they got along extremely well when they were partners. I guess things could've been different behind the scenes.

To the surprise of no one, looks like sticking to sports was a factor. Also love the assertion that they could occasionally pair Goff with Holmes at night, because we can’t be having our diversity shown anywhere but nights and weekends.

The best part of b and g was when they would diverge from sports. When they branched out, I learned awesome things like diacovering my new favorite spicy condiment sambal olek. I'm not sure how anyone could actually listen to 5 hours straight of sports talk.

The way everyone's media habits are changing make AM radio an already dead industry. WSCR pivoted to cater to the people who have already tapped out of exploring new ways to consume their media. They'll run on the fumes of their local audience that just wants to hear a voice talking about the only teams they care about without infringing on their personal grievance politics until those people die out and it'll be gone.

A guy like Jason Goff who is still relatively young and has to survive in the media industry beyond the next 5-10 years, unlike a fossil like Dan McNeil, is better off in the long run regrouping and finding a more forward-positioned niche. Aggrieved conservatives love to point out ESPN's declining ratings and blame Jemele Hill or Dan Le Batard talking about social issues within sports or how NFL ratings are declining because of player activism, and that might play a very small role, but really, people are just finding different things to care about and different ways to consume it.

They have a 612 page thread devoted to Julie, the update anchor and weekend host. Odd site, but they still have some interesting posters there.

Julie Dicaro got a ton of attention over her tweets RE: the Patrick Kane allegations, among other things. Not at all surprised she'd....stir conversation there.
