    by paranoid call screeners? I first called in wanting to talk about what the deal was with the nosey chinks (I said Asians) wanting Nick and Artie fired. They said there's no more talk about Asians and Linn. Then I called back, and apparently they have caller-id, and right away they said "no" before I could say anything and hung up on me. I called right back using *67 and said I wanted to talk about the final four and the riots and the douche said they already talked about it and before he hung up said call back if you have anything you want to talk about. So I guess it's true, they're on a final warning for being shit canned. The shows gonna suck balls, but I'll keep trying to get through. The guests (sports writers) they have on are a total bore.

    I called in and got through twice way back when... after Jackie left but before Artie became a regular. At least once was when Craig Gass was trying out for the Jackie chair.
    Never had to deal with any asshole paranoids though... I think it was either K.C. or Will back then who were screening calls.
    Once I got a girl screener and she hung up on me... goddamned Yankee heifer.

    Will is the call screener and is a really nice guy. They just arent allowed to talk about the Lin/Asain stuff and if they already talked about a subject they rarely go back to it so he wanted u to call in with something different.

    I concur--the call screener knows who I am and doesn't even give me the schpiel about cursing on the air anymore--he knows I know how to roll, but the key is to have a sports question (and then not to necessarily ask it) on hand for Will. Anything extra, especially pop culture stuff, they pooh pooh it, even though that's the best thing about the show.

    I never have a problem with Will the screener & always get through.
    The only thing was once I had to explain to him who Joba Chamberlain was. He had no idea who that was. I'll give him a break, since he's on the west coast...but it was right after Joba broke his ankle....so for a sports show screener, he should have known.
    But otherwise, he's fine & never questions me.

    I may be wrong here but i think the OP was talking about calling into Artie's show, seeing as this is the Artie forum and such.

    He is talking about calling into Artie's show and Will is the call screener for Artie's show. Not Will Murrary
