    This has been an ongoing saga in the DFW area since last year, and two days ago this finally hit. If you've ever lived in Dallas or just want to read a good, well-written story, check it out. It's a real-life soap opera involving guy/sports radio at one of the most successful sports radio stations in the country.

    Then, if you're still interested, hear the still-employed guys' response to the article yesterday...

    In short, every fucking thing that's wrong with sports radio and makes it utterly unlistenable for anybody with an IQ even approaching room temperature.

    And the rest is the completely stereotypical reformed-drug addict/alcoholic substance-abuse fuckup "i made mistakes, gee i'm sorry, i've seen the error of my ways, turned my life completely around, whole new attitude" bullshit we read every day.

    That's because the guys who are still in the gutter aren't granting a lot of interviews.
  4. So that appeared in the paper?
    You can drop an f-bomb in the paper?

    The Observer is the Dallas alt-weekly. It's a very good one, IMO.

    Sorry it didn't meet your standards, Starman. I thought it was pretty well done and fair. As for the format, to each his own I guess. They're obviously doing something right.

    So a guy with a drug addiction can buy $50-thousand dollars worth of guns? Sign of the Apocolypse. And the boss, allowing a guy to lie on the first day on the job and not call him out on it? Something's wrong with that dude as well. Guy sounds like a local version of Colin Cowherd. And everybody complains about Fatso and the Fruitloop--at least they keep the subject on sports.

    Greggo and Nate Newton will do a local 7-10 p.m. show on ESPN Dallas as soon as Greggo's 1-year non-compete expires in October.
