Hawk needs to go, period. And no, I won't miss him. I don't care if he is a homer. All local announcers in all sports are homers in some way. Hell, Wayne Larrivere was a life time Packers fan. And yet, he pretended to be a Bears fan for 13 seasons. Why? Because, the Bears signed his pay checks.

It's quite obvious Stone and Hawk aren't going to work anymore. Both men have giant egos. In Hawks case, he has to be the show and will only work with yes men. And, if you question him, how dare you! But, it's time to re-brand. Both the TV and radio broadcasts are unbearable and almost embarassing sometimes. I will fully admit I didn't quite go down with the ship. Why? Part of it was because I don't know what would be worse, the broadcasts or the play itself.

The only way I can deal with that radio team is to just listen to whatever nonsense they come up with next and laugh at it.

I, too, actually liked DJ in the booth with Hawk. Granted, I haven't listend to Farmer and DJ a ton over the last two or three years, but when I have, their banter was sometimes unlistenable.

I honestly listen to games less often because of it. Sometimes I opt for 620 and listen to Uecker instead. Hell, sometimes I pick WGN, too.

My father apparently got the Cleveland feed of one of this past week's games in the car the other night and was listening to that over Farmer and DJ.

Like I said, I've defended Hawk for years. His behavior over the past two weeks has been pretty despicable. The dude had no business being on the air this weekend. He was unfit to broadcast.

I often watch games with the volume on low or just completely tune out Hawk and Stoney. What has he done/said in the past fortnight?

Who cares. The team was also unfit to be playing. Anything Hawk did the last few weeks, I honestly could not care less because it will be blocked out of my mind faster than you can say "He Gone". See you in April, Hawk.

As for Stone, I don't care if he is there or not. He's alright but I liked DJ better.

It would be difficult for the White Sox to justify losing the one professional broadcaster they have.

They'll just say something about "brand" and they'll be set.

The one that exudes the least emotional stake in the team and could be replaced with a robot that would do a better job of selling the product?

Besides the childish behavior, do you think it's just time for him to do something else based on the fact that he's also too emotionally tied to the team? It's almost like he's crossed that line where now it's just too much of a conflict of interest.

He should retire and spend some time with his grandkids before another disappointing season kills him.

Almost nothing. That's the problem.
