Saying he had made more catches than Fitzgerald and saying the Fitzgerald comment was blown out of proportion. That he never said that but some executive from another team said he said it.
I'm sorry but why was John Siebel fired and the Mark Madden-Jim Rome wannabe gets to keep his job? Siebel wasn't great by any strach of the imagination, but didn't deserve to get fired first. Poni throughout the show keeps one opinion and digs his heels on it and has a voice that makes me want to put my fist through a wall.
Anyways Mueller wasn't on Thursday and Paul Zeise filled in for it. Very enjoyable show. Had a good discussion about Pitt sports (had Chris Peak on as a guest) and the coaching carousel that is the NFL.
Mueller is on. He's just on from 6-10 this week. Makes the evening much more enjoyable since he's my favorite host on air right now.
And from what i have heard, Siebel was fired due to his high salary. Poni i'm willing to bet isn't paid nearly as much. This isn't about talent since the fan really has none outside of Mueller in my opinion.
He's a great talent on that station. He isn't a tool, angry or annoying, let's the callers talk before giving his opinion and his show isn't agenda based, but just a show where he justs talks about sports and has fun with it.
Funny part about him is even though you can clearly tell he doesn't like hockey that much and puts the NBA ahead of the Pens, but when he does it's interestring and he'll have on Seth Rohrabaugh on as a guest to talk Pens. Since I enjoying reading his blog and twitter feed I like that he does that. This is compared to people who talk hockey reguarly like Madden or Benz who constantly have that tool Rob Rossi on as a guest.
But yeah he's the only personality on that station that's any good IMHO. The morning show are a bunch of tools, You can't understand anything Vinnie says, Cook is a angry bitter man, Starkey and Miller are just meh and I already give you my opinion on Poni. and if were talking Pirates, Zangrilli and Orie are uninterestring and are kool-aid drinkers. They don't give an objective opinion on the team the way Joe Bendel does with the Steelers or Bob Grove does with the Pens.
