Re: He's Back!

I like 106.3! I listened for maybe 10 minutes while driving between M-50 and M-66 along 96 last weekend. (I was on the outskirts of their coverage area.) The music mix was good. The audio processing sounded damn good. I also noticed that sister station 92.7 in Ionia has recently made some technical ...

Re: Hide threads

I'm unaware of any built-in functionality for that.

It's an interesting question. I'm gonna see if I can find an add-on extension for such a feature. I'll let you know within the next couple days if I have any luck.

I had a feeling "Get Up!" on ESPN had ultra shitty ratings...

Right away, when I saw the promos for the "Get Up!" show hosted by Mike Greenberg, Jalen Rose, and a woman whose name I do not recognize, I thought "what a stupid idea!!" ESPN's morning viewers generally hate the format and fluffy topics covered on Today, Good Morning America, etc. They tune to ESPN...

Re: Who has the best Sports Radio Network

I agree with kman regarding ESPN; most of their hosts stink. A very boring lineup. At least they don't have Jonathan Coachman on their non-stop anymore as was the case roughly ten years ago. Not a Tom Looney fan at all. Too much slappie shtick; does the guy spend more than 25% of his show talking ac...

Re: 102.7 WPZR to EMF (K-Love)

Two of those three make a lot of sense. I figured 93.5 in Detroit was a sure thing and that 98.3 in the Dearborn area was pretty likely, too. The 93.5 in Riverview brings very little to the table. Few African Americans live in the zip codes covered by that signal. Also, 102.7 is kinda weak in Allen ...

On my side of town, most of this afternoon turned out quite nice. :)

Point taken, which is why I didn't use playoffs as a litmus test.

I'm thinking more along the lines of win-loss record.

Re: Van Gundy fired as Pistons President & head coach

NFL teams have far more moving parts you have to get right... length of season is irrelavent and if anything the longer the season the more margin for error.. The last part of your statement, NS8401, flies in the face of statistics theory. Ever hear of regression to the mean? Or the law of averages...

46 degrees in downtown Detroit right now.

Re: Channel 7's out of whack weather forecast

Last night, his forecast graphics showed "partly to mostly cloudy" for today.

Great guy and I like his delivery, but his accuracy has been sucking ass lately.

It's cold, gloomy, rainy and miserable today, just like TWC has been forecasting for many days.

Re: Van Gundy fired as Pistons President & head coach

The 22 vs. 5 argument is not an apples-to-apples comparison. NFL draft classes run much, much deeper than NBA draft classes. NFL player contracts are also structured differently than NBA player contracts. 16 game seasons are also less "honest" than 82 game regular seasons. I mean - look at how the P...

Re: Channel 7's out of whack weather forecast

Saturday will almost assuredly be stuck in the 50s. I have low confidence that skies will clear enough (and pressure heights will rise enough) to support mid 60s Sunday. I'm thinking any clearing won't occur until very late afternoon. I think mid level clouds and patchy showers will be common, with ...

Not really. We're just going to keep seeing more of the same. The can will keep getting kicked down the road. No one is going to build a station that's going to prove to be a poor business investment.

Re: Channel 7's out of whack weather forecast

The dummies at 7 are finally in line with everyone else's forecast for Friday.

The Weather Channel has been consistently calling for Friday highs in the low 50s for the past four days.

NWS is predicting only 50 for the north suburbs.

Re: Sean Hannity Is Named as Michael Cohen’s Client

Michael Cohen is a bad, bad dude. Sounds like he was accepting bribes in exchange for promising access to the President and/or influencing policy. Did Trump have knowledge that Cohen was acting in such a manner? I sure hope not. Of course, Cohen will probably argue that he was simply acting as a "co...

I'm not a guy who can toss out specific examples but in a sport that only puts 5 guys on the floor its easier on paper to turn things around. especially considering what one or two superstars can do to carry the other not so talented guys. The NBA has salary caps with highly punitive luxury taxes. ...

Is it true that these ding-a-lings are still predicting high temps this Friday (May 11) in the mid 60's?!?! As of this writing, that's the prediction found on the weather page at wxyz.com. Virtually EVERYONE ELSE is calling for highs in the 50's. A couple model runs are suggesting Metro Detroit may ...
