He's right, the caller is wrong, and him being right also means that whatever the player/coach/manager/GM/owner decided was also right, and you had no business calling in and trying to discuss it in the first place. It's the worst model you could possibly have for a call-in post game show.
Perfectly said. Even in the off-season when he is reduced to update boy, the radio goes off when I hear his voice.
