Russo KILLS Omar

Say what you want about Mike and the Mad Dog, but that interview with Omar just now was the reason that they are a must listen in moments like this. Russo thundered away at Omar, much the way Kaffe did with Jessep. Mike backed off and let Chris do the dirty work, as he always does in these spots. God forbid Mike ruins his personal relationship with Omar. To me, Russo did a TERRIFIC job here and Mike looked like a weasel. Your thoughts?

He was great theater and he emphasized the point that the firing was handled poorly, but he also asked Omar why he could chose Willie's staff and Willie couldn't choose Omar's staff. That was pretty moronic. Capt. Jack Ross probably sums it up best.:

Mad Dog is gonna try to pull off
a little magic act, he's gonna try a little misdirection. He's going to astonish you with stories of cross-country flights and dazzle you with official sounding terms like Atrocious. He might even cut into a few Met execs for you. He'll have no evidence, mind you, none. But it's gonna be entertaining. When we get to the end, all the magic in the world will not have been able to divert your attention from the fact that Willy Randolph is gone, and the Mets still have to make the playoffs on his watch.

I didn't hear it (I sound like Mike), but that's about the only thing I like about Dog -- he knows he's a big name in NY sports media, and doesn't like any of the local teams anyway, so he can fire away.

Anytime ANYONE gets bullied by that little worm Maddog, I become a fan.
I never cared much for Omar. I now love him.

It should be against the law for someone who SUCKS SO BAD AT THEIR JOB to EVER yell and critisize someone ELSE who sucks at what they do.

gabagool...gotta disagree with you. These guys (like Omar) know that when they come on MMD, they are going to face hard questions. If they don't want it, they can go on ESPN Radio. Russo is clueless often but he has every right to thunder away at people like Omar. That is why I listen to MMD.

I get what youre saying, I really do, but I would just NEVER admit it in public, my distaste for them is just too great.

You know, even if they were as LAZY,UNPREPARED,AND WITH THE SAME STUPID ACCENTS AND SPEECH IMPEDIMENTS, I would overlook ALL if they were just respectful human beings to people YOU KNOW they consider below them.

Have you ever turned on the radio mid sentance, especially with fatso. You can tell, 100% of the time, if he is talking to a caller or some big time jock he loves, BEFORE you hear who he is talking to. The voice, the demeanor, EVERTHING changes when that slob talks to someone he admires.

Remember Russo talking shit about some tennis player who just choked (long long time ago) Well, the tennis player called him and the saddog turned from toughguy to wuss in 10 seconds flat.

Again, I understand what you are saying, I just can't stand them. If they were gone tomorrow, it would be one day to late. I know I am in the minority here, but replace them with ANYONE, just continue taking calls from NY sports fans, and I will be happy as a clam.
