Re: Fenech Banned

I'm keeping an open mind until I have all the facts.

However, given Fenech's past douche baggery, it would not at all surprise me if Verlander has a good reason for not providing Fenech access.

I don't think anyone is arguing the notion that the Astros violated the CBA; they clearly did.

Re: Dick move by Verlander and the Astros

How do you know Verlander's complaint regarding Fenech isn't legitimate? Given Fenech's past history, I'm inclined to give Verlander the benefit of the doubt. I find it very interesting how the Free Press has repeatedly ignored outreach attempts by Verlander's camp to discuss the matter further. You...

Don't worry. Tucker Carlson says white nationalism is a non-issue! LOL

FWIW, Marysville is a shithole.

Re: New 105.3 Hot FM morning show announced

I write 40 to 50 page memos for high risk loan transactions that often exceed $25 million on a regular basis. My work is frequently read by people making high six figure salaries as well as banking industry regulators. I graduated from an elite undergrad school of business. Therefore, I think I am v...

Re: Fenech Banned

I love how all the sports reporter assholes are rallying around Fenech without even knowing the facts as to JV's beef. Also love how the Freep refused to take calls from JV's people not once, not twice, but at least three (!!!) times. The Freep loves to defend unethical staff, especially sports writ...

Re: New 105.3 Hot FM morning show announced

(I used my moderator privileges to edit the thread subject; thanks statmanmi.) I like how "Neilson" is spelled in the footnote of that press release! Also,, I like the reference to "Triple A" in the opening sentence. Non-radio people likely have zero idea what that term even means. When they see "Tr...

Re: New 105.3 Hot FM morning show announced

That press release is absolutely nauseating to read. I will say moving Jackie Green to mornings isn't a bad move from the standpoint that she absolutely stinks as a top 40 music jock. Hopefully, 105.3 will now get some decent air talent in PM Drive. Based on the content of the press release, the sta...

Re: Fenech Banned

This topic is perfectly suitable for this thread. Don't forget - Fenech was drunk as a skunk when he destroyed his car. He must've written something or said something about Kate that rubbed JV the wrong way. Funny how the Freep refused to take phone calls from JV's agent. His agent made three attemp...

Re: My endorsements for City of Warren primaries

Well, when I lived in the city, I saw several poorly conceived site plans spring to life. To Jim Fouts' credit (as much as I hate to give that man credit), as a city councilman, he vocally spoke out against the hideously configured residential portion of the Heritage Village project near 12 Mile & M...

Re: Energy lemmings

Now, “energy experts” are telling you to turn your AC to 78 while you're home, 82 when you sleep, and 85 when you’re away. Turn it up at night? Really?!?! That makes no sense. Outside temperatures at night are cooler; AC systems do not need to work as hard. Also, who in their right mind would turn ...

Re: The Left Is Trying To Destroy AM Radio

You know why AM tuner sensitivity and sound quality suck these days? It's because big business interes...

Re: WOOD TV 70 Year Special

Even the photo gallery is lame as hell.

WZZM did such a better job with its 50th anniversary celebration a number of years back than WOOD-TV did with its 70th anniversary celebration...

I suppose WOOD will have another stab at it in five more years when they reach the big 7-5.
