Re: Brandstatter Fired From Lions Broadcasts

mud,almost certainly the Lions , NOT WJR mandated Brandstatter's ouster, as the club approves the broadcasters . Whether Martha Firestone Ford herself, President Rod Wood or another Lions muck-a-muck , you can bet that WJR had little say in Brandy's dismissal . Everything I've heard is just the opp...

Re: Brandstatter Fired From Lions Broadcasts

I've been a Lions "fan" since my family moved to Michigan from Ohio in 1960. So I've seen my share of ineptness. We had season tickets for a couple years in the mid 60's when they played at Tiger Stadium. I have to say I've never associated the voices in the radio booth with the futility on the field.

As opposed to what exactly? The all-star game? What deep dive on REAL SPORTS TALK would you want right now?
That is a good point....it is a slow time for sports.

Re: Left wing Behavior

In my admittedly anecdotal observation it seems far left people are more prone to violence than far right people. My "logic" come from a couple assumptions or observations....... 1. When Far right demonstrations devolve into violence its almost always because of a confrontation with far left counter...

I will also point out the "lets fix the damn roads" is actually a plea rather than a promise. She doesn't say "I'm going to fix the damn roads"

Re: Being pro-police

I don't pretend to be a gourmet cook by any means but I do a couple things pretty good. A couple tips... when making pancakes I put a healthy fist full of outmeal (uncooked whole oats) in the batter. Adds some nice texture and fiber. When grilling hamburgers I add salsa to the burger before forming ...

Re: Mike Valenti Renews With WXYT-FM

sirrealone,Valenti received a torrent of disgusting tweets while on Twitter, so he left social media. I think most of the rest of the on air staff in on twitter. So either they are able to withstand "a torrent of disgusting tweets" or perhaps they don't suffer "a torrent of disgusting tweets". If i...

Re: Brandstatter Fired From Lions Broadcasts

I wish the Michigan would have fired his homer ass instead of the Lions. I actually enjoyed him as the Lions analyst - Dislike him as the U of M analyst/toadie that he is. He hasn't been the "analyst" for Michigan in 4 years since he took over play by play after Frank "Fried Chicken" Beckmann was f...

MWMetalhead, I understand Brandstatter's "major" was General Studies,a spurious major many jocks are convinced to take to keep themselves "academically " eligible, so Cousin Jimbo likely has trouble at getting facts straight because were he not a football player,he couldn't have gotten into Michiga...

Well,craig11152,there are PLENTY of incompetent white boys broadcasting games in mostly white cities. Works both ways ,bud . (But far from often enough.) You are absolutely right.

Re: Brandstatter Fired From Lions Broadcasts

As Bryce alluded I wonder if getting a black guy in the booth to appeal to a city that is predominantly black had anything to do it.
Maybe it was money but how much money are we talking? There are only 16 (20) games. The away games will cost the same as far as travel expenses.
