Today Florio acted like a pompous prick. PA is kidding around with him at the start of the segment...for about 60 seconds in PA's long-winded but playful way...and Florio is like; you just wasted 2 minutes of time...now have wasted 3 minutes (implying his time is so precious and important)...but heh PA...its you're show. Florio has the personality...of a turd in a punch bowl. PA eventually moved on...but you could tell it pissed him off. Later on PA had Bert on and seemed annoyed at Bert not agreeing with him on a top 4 batting order of Span, Mauer, Morn. and Willingham...but I think his annoyance was more because he was still POed at what tool Florio is...wondering in anybody else was listening to this and what you're take was?


I didn't hear this particular segment but it doesn't surprise me.
Florio is generally a pretty popular radio guest, especially during the season and the weeks leading up to the draft. There are 32 NFL teams that have flagship stations that probably try to schedule him, so he's probably a little busy; and at this point a little stressed.

He's always had a little arrogance to him, but I've never heard him act like that before. Seems like he and PA generally get along.

Minus when big games happen, it doesnt exactly make for compelling radio to talk about it. It is a niche sport that for the last few years even die hards had a hard time watching because the product was mediocre. Not to mention have you heard some of the rubes who call in when college puck is discussed...they rival the winners who call in on Vikings Fan Line after a loss ;)

For guys like PA and Dan (and others on the other stations) who arent hockey guys it is a no win. If they ignore it they get ripped for ignoring it, and if they try and cover it they get ripped because they dont know enough about it to speak intelligently.

The Marney thing is inexcusable though...pretty much after every game at some point she would say 'Senior goalie Kent Patterson' I mean come on. You work for FSN covering the team, know the team.

NBC bought ProFootballTalk.com and Florio still gets to operate it independently.

I did not hear the segment that you are referencing, but I have heard them a bunch of times and believe part of their schtick when together is that Florio acts like he's annoyed/irritated at PA. They usually goof around with each other so I would think they get along pretty well but maybe in this case Florio was genuinely annoyed. Lord knows it would be easy enough with PA...

Bushwood...Thanks...didn't know about the purchase by NBC...and that CLEARLY answers the question of how Florio got on NBC Sunday Night football. I'm sure PA and Florio likely get along fine...I just think PA plays nice with him and constantly mentions his website while on air with him...in a more forced way than with other regular guests.

I like PA...and although I agree he is sometimes irritating...I think he does put strong effort into all 3 hours... although he should take a few more calls. But PA is PA...if you listen to him you have to take the bad with the good. His ability to get quality guests is a strength...and at least he's made a bigger effort to include college and NHL hockey during the past year or two (post the Dubay meltdown).

Funny thing about Sludge...its the 24 hour SLUDGEATHON..where he is at his best...because he actually acts appreciative regarding the numerous on-air station personalities who come on and help him with the fund raising marathon. When Cary Noble was on for segments (she is moving down the dial to 97.1 I believe) or the 8 oclock hour with Rosen on...I could do without Sludge completely.

Best way I can describe Sludge on-air...he is like a defenseman who constantly rushes the puck in bad situations and turns the puck over...instead of playing within himself.. irritating the fans (the listeners in this case)...so it isn't like Sludge has no talent...its how he uses it the bugs the piss out of a lot of listeners...including me.

My crack internet research skills came up with a gem of mine from 2 years ago that notes that Greenlay and Terhaar signed a 2-year deal with FSN...two years ago.

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5886&p=302726&hilit=greenlay#p302726

I got Center Ice this past season and I'm convinced more than ever that the Wild have the worst TV analysts in the league. At best, I think that they are in the bottom 5. The fact that they believe that a Wild player has never committed a penalty aside, they both speak entirely in guarded cliches and offer little or no real analysis of the game, nor have any interesting insights to the personalities on the team.

Given that Gary Thorne has been all but tossed to the Wolves by ESPN and the fact that there are quality people all over the league in smaller markets with few hockey fans, I've got some cautious optimism that these two are shown the door and that an improvement can be made.

I'm curious to know if I'm in the minority...does anyone else despise their work as much as I do?

I like Sludge, don't really listen to him often because I am rarely up for the morning show, and Sludge and Lake is no longer on.

Pretty sure the Sludgeathon is this Saturday-Sunday, I usually try to tune in since I don't hear him that often. He does some great work for the Lupus Foundation. I hope they still have the Troy Williamson practice jersey :lol:

First of all, what for? Just because he loved college hockey and the gophers doesn't mean he knew what the hell he was talking about.
Second of all, he's got a problem that he needs to figure out...until then he shouldn't be given any more chances.

H8red, maybe you should see who is an addict around you. Glen Sonmor is an addict. St. Paul newspaper had a nice article on him a few years back. Addicts ( I am one) have a diease and maybe read about it before you hate on us.

Gary Thorne does PBP for the Baltimore Orioles. I think he only works for ESPN on a freelance basis for the NCAA hockey tournament.

StarTribune.com and Malware....

A few of us have noticed that going to certain stories on the Strib website today brings up a malware warning on our browsers. I think they have had this problem in the past. I noticed it on the internet tax article and others have had similar issues for other parts of the site as well... Even Roman's Blog.

I did a search on Google for "startribune internet tax" and the link to the story has a "This site may harm your computer." warning underneath it. It's pretty apparent that the Strib is not keeping tabs on one or more of their advertisers.

I heard the new guy for the first time yesterday... LOVED him.

I can't tell you how often Gordo would start talking about an at bat and the first pitch he announces is in a 2-1 count. I don't think I missed a pitch with Provus. He was professional and did a better job of painting a picture than Gordo ever did, IMO.

Also, I'm happy that Attaberry is in the pre/post game role and not doing pxp. To me he's the Kevin Gorg of baseball announcers - trying to fit in too many cliche catch-phrases. Just call the action. Provus does that. He's won me over.

I really liked John Gordon, but I like listening to the new guy (Provus) too. He's fantastic.

I remember when LaPanta took over for Mazzacco, some of us were saying that people didn't like LaPanta only because he was new and people don't like change. Nope. LaPanta sucked then, and he still sucks now. I'm willing to accept a new guy. Just don't suck at your job.

The reason I have no sympathy for addicts is because I have had very personal experiences (some pretty bad) with a number of them.
It doesn't mean they can't be productive, very caring, good people once they get a handle on their issue. I mean no offense or disrespect, just stating my feelings just as you are.

I listened to a few more innings of the new guy, and he was actually pretty decent. A few thoughts:

1) I am wary because he's not a hometown guy. As long as he has an EDGE of homerism, I'll be fine. If I want to listen to absolutely objective play-by-play, I'll Gamecast it--more states anyway.

2) I can't believe he's only 33...

Douchebag Dark Starr was talking about Tubby this morning on Sludge's Lupus fundraiser because some caller wanted to rip Tubby (and paid 25 dollars to do it on air :lol: ) and Dark said that the Gophers have "2 coaches who have won national championships with a different coach's players. Tubby Smith did it wit Rick Pitino's players and Don Lucia did it with Doug Woog's players."

I wanted to drive to the station and give him some sweet chin music Shawn Michaels style.


I should have called in to argue with him but I didn't have my card with me to make a donation to put that tool in his place. Why does KFAN continue to let his dumbassery on the radio? It isn't like he's a weekly time slot.

And before somebody says "Well why didn't you just change the station to not listen to him?" it was 5am. That's why. There is literally nothing on at 5am on the radio except like Dawson McCallister (snooze fest).

Ooh, and he ripped Lucia for not disclosing his illness last year because "everybody in the know" knows he had Bells Palsy and he could have become a good spokesman/role model for people with Bells Palsy. :chainsaw: :chainsaw: Parise I hate Dark Starr.

Dark Star is a clown. He tries to come off as a sports guru, but continually makes an ass out of himself. I am waiting for the day when he ticks Sid off and Sid punches him in the face! I wish the Sports Show would get rid of Dark Star & get someone with some real sports knowledge on the show! Maybe have a guest each week to replace the idiot!!

In case you haven't heard, on Tuesday Jim Souhan wrote the following column about the stadium debate.

http://www.startribune.com/sports/vikin ... 56875.html

Turns out the politician he was mocking actually voted FOR the stadium. That politician wrote the following editorial in rebuttal in today's paper.

http://www.startribune.com/opinion/comm ... 80475.html

I don't want to start another stadium debate, but I have to agree with the rebuttal. I don't think Souhan knew that this guy actually voted yes for the stadium.

While I don't always agree with Souhan, I do like listening to/reading him. That said. IMO he needs to answer his critics about this issue as he would likely be taking others to task if they had done something similar.

If LaPanta goes to the wild, that means when the Vikes leave town PA will join up with LaPanta to call Wild games(whisper...I think he has a man crush on LaPanta- he keeps talking about how much he likes his hair!)

From the rebuttal:
The sad truth is that Souhan ended up with a column based on a false premise and filled with ignorance and distortion.

From your keyboard to God's ears!!! We can only hope that LaPanta gets promoted to this and then maybe someone worthy can be in the booth for the Gopher games. I know there are so many people on here that could give two craps either way whether LaPanta is in the booth or not but I have never cared for the guy whether he is in the studio but I hate it when he is calling Gopher games.

I saw that. And then I read his NHL piece today, which was pretty much ignorant, too. He condemned all the head shots (fine) but if you don't know any better, you wouldn't think the NHL was doing anything about it, and in fact ENCOURAGING the head shots. Yeah, Souie, never mind they suspended Raffi Torres until a hearing to see how long he'll be suspended for.

I don't listen to common man often but this Wednesday he was going through the Vikings stadium debacle and he replayed some big Minnesota sports moments, kind of hyping up the stadium like we need to retain our winning sports and at the end he replayed the holy cross OT victory over the gophers. I wasn't really paying attention until then. Is his assistant, sludge or cluge or whoever it is, a N Dak fan? They like to be the anti fan on that station, there's something smug about degrading local sports teams. Anyone listen to his show? Does he pull that out very often?

A) Matvick left FSN because he didn't/couldn't wait in the wings like lapanta did
B) Matvick is as much anti-Gopher as lapanta is. I believe he longs for Husky Women SCSU-style very much (if I'm wrong I know someone here will correct me)
C) We shouldn't give the whioux fans the satisfaction knowing that the guy who called the Holy Cross game is now our regular play-by-play guy
D) With B1G hockey starting play, it seems like he'd be perfect for the BTN and could do other sports like field hockey, woman's soccer, and such & such.

That said, I'm in favor of promoting lapanta to anywhere but Gopher Hockey. And he can take Gellner with him.

+1 to all of this, especially the Gellner part. Matvick was actually viewed as being more anti Gopher than LaPanta IIRC, and there was actually some logic to that view since he was openly a SCSU guy.

His producer is Brandon Melesky and he is not a NoDak fan. Common does that for 2 reasons; 1) to get a rise out of the Gopher Hockey Fans and 2) because he thinks the reaction by the announcers is ridiculous.

Interesting. What the article fails to mention, and what I'd like to know, is how the numbers look for the Hispanic, transgender, 33-33.5 year old, one-armed, blind, redheaded, excessively flatulent demographic who listen on two tin cans and a piece of string.

Interesting. What the article fails to mention, and what I'd like to know, is how the numbers look for the Hispanic, transgender, 33-33.5 year old, one-armed, blind, redheaded, excessively flatulent demographic who listen on two tin cans and a piece of string.


Can't we just ask you what you listen to? :biggrin2:

It's rumored that the Wild may bring in LaPanta to call the games on FSNorth.... So where does that leave Gopher Hockey if that does happen? Who will they bring in to call the games?

I doubt they would bring back Mazzocco after how they treated him 2 years ago, but who knows.

I wonder why they didn't bring back Terhaar... There is no benefit to replacing Terhaar with LaPanta in my mind...

is not Raphael.
is not quite Rau.
