You can listen live on wtka. He was a regular all last year on thursdays during the season last year.
Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."
Do I have to banhammer him?
BLUE IN SOUTH BEND (I used your full name to further fight the power) JUST MENTIONED ACE WILLIAMS. HE SHOULD BE BOLIVIAN'D.
And he's really on this time too!
Nonsense. Professional bloggers do not wake up before noon.
(1) Brian does not like Drew Sharp
(2) Brian does not like Ace Williams
(3) Ira is a Brian mini-me
Does Brian like Elaine?
Does Brian have a compound fracture?
Does Brian like his chicken spicy?
Is Brian getting upset?
1. No one likes Drew, that's his thing. But apparently he wore a "suck it" cap to a press conference or something like that?
2. I'm not sure where he was going tying in the Ace problem with a lack of an open media policy. How talking to current players and going to practice is going to prevent made up stuff from players 5 years ago how....?
3. Anyone get the feeling that Ira gets all of his talking points from reading MGoBlog?
I think he was saying that people crave information this time of year. They're so thirsty for it they'll crawl through the desert toward a mirage, and when they discover there's no water, they'll drink the sand. So unless you feed the beast with something real, some snake oil salesman will come in and fill the void with ridiculous shit.
If we suddenly had a bunch of tell nothing practice video, or puff pieces on a freshman's mom that people would go....oh, I'm full...I'll ignore this news that shall not be named. It's just more fodder. And people will eat that up too. I don't think the two are related at all.
Now could they maybe turn stories like that into fish wrap by doing something else to attract the media's attention right after it, in a sleight of hand? Sure. But I don't think that's what he was saying.
I listen virtually every morning, and he talks about plenty of stuff that doesn't even show up on MGoBlog.
Besides, given the new media blackout, it would be difficult to not have some overlap anyhow—there's only so much new info to go around.
As any arguments or viewpoints he has are taken right from Brian's bullet points. Whether it be the Freep, Rich, the spread, etc. I think he just basically takes Brian's arguments and regurgitates them on the air anytime he wants to point out "facts" to disagree with someone on the air. It just that he got most of them from this site. Or 3&O.
he'd better start getting "facts" direct from the Freep to combat the one-sidedness inherent in relying on what's actually the case.
As most of the Freep stuff is. But everything Brian says isn't fact; some if it is opinion...and in rare cases, just flat out false. But he doesn't have any problem spitting those out either.
seem to be having a grand old time. Very enjoyable to listen to.
As of about a week ago, my TuneIn Radio app no longer carries WTKA. Is this the case for anyone else?
I know IHeartRadio carries WTKA, but I find myself not listening as often as I did with TuneIn. IHeartRadio is just not as convenient as TuneIn, as it doesn't allow (as far as I know) for the opportunity to pause, rewind, or record the broadcast.
Of course, as we all know, the WTKA app is complete rubbish, so unfortunately that is not a solution.
I don't know anything about the tune in app. But I do know that everything I try and listen to with only one exception is very choppy on I Heart Radio. WTKA needs a app for the android.
Someone suggested this before, but if you have itunes, download the podcast. They are good and it mostly works.
I listen to it every morning through my Roku.
I just checked the website and Tunein didn't seem to have WTKA on the 2nd page of sports stations where it usually resides. I then googled "WTKA tunein" and clicked on a result and was presented with a page tunein page that showed the scheduled programs and said it was not available. Yet when I clicked on the suggestion that was like "find other stations", it came on with the Big show which is playing right now. Go figure.
I hope it isn't discontinuing tunein, it has been the only reliable source for WTKA.
Eeerily similar to the First Rule of Fight Club, no? Perhaps we need a name Ace. Shoudl we call him he-who-must-not-be-named?
I can't hear anything on WTKA on Iheart. I can hear other stations but not WTKA, anyone else have this issue?
I use the TuneIn radio app on my iPhone. I had no issues up until about a week ago, now WTKA shows up as "not available." Whatever that means. Actually happening with the local sports station in Nashville as well.
EDIT: See above responses.
I'm not familiar with wtka. How often do they have sports related content on and is there an option for listening online?
My favorite exchange from the show:
Irate caller referring to Denard:
"He's a runner! He's not a quarterback!"
"They snap him the ball..."
Well played Brian.
It sounds like this is against protocol, but it's been brought up here, so I'll ask. Can I get a brief explanation of who he-who-shall-not-be-named is and what he's done to gain so much infamy? Yes I plugged his name into the search bar and all I got was a bunch of threads where people were scolded for talking about him. Much appreciated.
try google buddy...
