    I've know the Mad Dog for a few decades. He's said some dumb things but this one is disturbing.

    I am going to boycott Chris Russo starting 20 years ago.

    Haven't heard him in many years, but I have good memories of Mad Dog. Listening to it, I don't think it was that bad. You know what he meant.

    This the Mad Dog radio guy on Sirius? Don't know if it was him or another host but I was listening to that once, about a year or so ago, and he was ranting about something, put a caller on the air, about 15 seconds later railed the caller for interrupting him.

    No I don't know what he meant. I know what he said and he sounded like an asshole to the fifth power.

    But you've known him for a few decades.

    But you don't know what he meant. Right!

    My knowing him has nothing to do with what he meant. I'm hearing the tape just like you. I don't know what he meant but I do know he sounded like an asshole to the fifth power. The ONLY PERSON who truly knows what he meant is Chris Russo.

    Heard the show and think that you are overreacting Drip.
    Dog did not present in best manner and I'm sure if he had a
    chance at a redo he would not state in same manner.
    I've known Dog for a while also and find him to be a good man
    and even a better person.

    Chris Russo on satellite radio: Forgotten, but not gone.

    I swore off Russo and his idiot co-host when they all but blamed 9/11 on Israel and Jews.

    Doesn't Russo work some crazy six-hour shift on satellite? Anyone who talks that much and talks that fast is going to say something he/she would rather have phrased differently from time to time.

    He also has a daily show on the MLB Network now.

    I tried watching it once but turned it off after about three minutes because he never stopped screaming.
