And WHY in the HELL does Murph want to talk about the Bears at 7:30 am? That's just insane.

You keep forgetting to include the commercial blocks in your log, which is half the show, which is the main reason I don't listen anymore.

Because in the local sports media's world, the Bears are the center of the universe as they have been since 1985. Even the drillrod media's beloved Flubbies are a moon in orbit around the Bears planet.

Anyone remember in the Movie Private Parts where they talk about how the average Stern hater listens twice as much as the average lover. I think you are just fueling your hatred, and not to mention, fueling their ratings. If you can't stand them Hangar, why listen? Its so aggravating to listen to you complain about the same thing over....and over.....and over....

(I'm waiting for the expected..."well, if you don't like it, don't read the thread", and thats my point!!!)

Hey Benny, Why don't you give out your home phone number so that we can call you and ask you what we can talk about today. You can decide what we can eat, drink, and think the rest of the day. We'll just call you every morning about 5:00am before work and you fill us in on how we should live our lives. Go start your own thread about what bothers you. Because I for one appreciate Hangar and what he's doing the help the Sox World..... C'Ya.

Fred showed his true (blue) colors again this morning when he didn't know what the Fan Deck was called.

Murph surmised that Maggs could walk around the concourse with his sunglasses on and not be recognized, though Fred wisely disagreed.

Why don't you give me your home address so I can fill your bathtub with razor blades. I didn't say anything along the lines of what you are accusing me of.

Whoa dude, CHILLAX! Seriously though, when I read it I took it that way too. Maybe you should be more reserved when you tear into someone, especially someone as well liked as Hangar.

I dont think Benny was really tearing into Hangar. To me it looked like he was putting a semi humorous spin on what he wanted to say. I will also admit that sometimes I think Hangar does go a little overboard, and is a bit obsessed with it in my eye. BUt I still appreciate the effort he puts into it. It is nice to know how slanted it is. I see where benny is coming from because Murph is just so full of dung that it boggles my mind how Hangar can listen to it every morning and it would probably be better for everyones temper to not listen becuase we all might possibly want to slam our heads in the wall and throw our radios out the window. :D:

But I agree with benny's point re. people dumping garbage on him for dumping garbage on hangar's threads that dump garbage on the media bias in Chicago. Oh the irony! :cool:

i think that hangars media threads are gettin old. if you listen to the score throughout the day, you will see that both teams get equal coverage, especially during hood's dual post game shows. it is not his fault if there are like 2 sox callers and 20 flub callers. stop obsessing about the media!

Media coverage sells tickets and TV/Radio contracts...higher payroll and better teams.

Thanks for the support of many. I wasn't tearing into anyone except for pss, who called me out. SECONDLY, Hangar may have a lot of fans, but doesn't this conversation happen EVERY DAY? I'm just wondering who else feels my way, not ripping or tearing. I think that the Mods should put this thread in the parking lot, because its never about the White Sox, its always about the Cubs. Just seems like beating a dead horse.

I think it'd be different if he ever contributed to threads about the actual game on the field. Honestly, I don't recall him saying much of anything positive regarding the team. It's all about media/management bashing. (ie. the "cubune" sucks, "cub times" sucks, JR sucks, etc) Occasionally, he'll complain. I recall a particular thread about how much Mike Jackson sucks.

Yea.. that was real necessary, eh?

I don't like Henry's reporting either, and it's my God given right, as well as anyone elses here, to complain about it.

It would be bad enough if just your own home media was biased against you,but the national media(usually espn) shows the White Sox(when they bother to show highlights)in a bad light.Is it any wonder that most baseball fans either don't like the White sox or are apathetic to them.
