A Few Quick HIts

(1) I hadn't tuned in to RaGE in awhile, so after Mike and Corby did their "how will the Cowboys do" review, I flipped over for a segment.  They were conducting a roundtable on "What did you like most, least/most surprising/etc." about training camp.  Greggo was actually pretty sharp, making some very pointed observations about Montre Holland's poor condition upon arrival at camp.  Richie and Armand were OK, Sybil was of no value.

(2) I caught just a minute or two of RaGE later on.  Richie informed Mickey Spagnola that they were going to call his segment "Cowboy Confidential."  I'm not saying Richie is influenced by this site, but I suggested that a revamped and improved Ranch Report be called (among other suggestions) "Cowboy Confidential" on February 10, 2010 and again on August 18, 2010.  (The latter was just a reprint of the former.)

(3) I was interested in The Hardline's agitated discussion today of the failure of Cumulus to attempt to syndicate them in some other Texas metro areas.  This site has suggested that Cumulus should be leveraging The Ticket's popularity via syndiation,   A couple of commenters have thrown out some reasons why syndication is not in the cards, but it is apparent that at least the on-air insiders ain't buying any excuses.  (Could have been a bit.  The Ticket didn't syndicate when Mike was a part-owner, either.)  The Hard Ones specifically linked syndication to generating some additional cash, at least enough to get Danny a chair where the spring isn't boinging him in the ass.

For a while, I was convinced that Sybil was not an actual person, but just a guy behind an "annoying chick" soundboard, because she would never, ever utter a sentence that had actual content in it.

If you want a good laugh, head over to Whitt's "Sportatorium" blog at the Dallas Observer. There's a lot of pissed off sports fans over there that institute a righteous nutkicking to him every day for his failures as a blogger.

Believe it or not, he puts a lot more effort into his radio gig that his blogging.
