    It's not like Joke Hunt can be making him any money and all Howard has been doing is shitting on him since he left. Jackie must know his moment in the sun has passed, why doesn't he just go down swinging? I would love to see Jackie write a tell all or even just to hear him bust on what an embarrassment Howard has become. At this point I don't think he would even jump back on the sinking ship that is THSS.

    Oh yes he would. If Howard were to ask him back, Jackie would be there in a heartbeat. Doing that wretched Joke Hunt on 101 just goes to show you how desperate Martling is to cling on to any last remaining connection to Howard...

    It's obviously making him enough money for him to do the dopey show and if given the chance Jackie would clean the studio for a few extra bucks.

    He's still doing shows most weekends, I suppose he does it for the plugs more than anything.

    Jackie would scrub Tim Sabean's explosive shits off the walls if Howard asked him... He would even bring his own cleaning supplies.

    You would think this picture alone and all the shit he took over it would be enough to light a fire under his ass and give it back to Howard just a bit. Maybe some jokes about a horse and a pelican walking into a bar.

    When Artie was gone, Jackie offered to sit in as a trial. He even agreed to the same shitty salary he made on Joke hunt.
    Howard said "no".

    I believe that Jackie believed in the beginning that he could get back on the show if he did Joke hunt with a shitty salary. Later Jackie believed it would be great "pilot" episodes to shop around to other radio networks.

    Jackie is much more happy about his life then Howard is.
    Everyone around Howard are payed to be with him. No one loves him or care about him exempt for his money.

    The sheer delight Howard gets out of Jackie having come crawling back, and just keeping him on a short leash is just sick.

    Either cut him loose, or help him out. He keeps him around to toy with his hope. Which is really fucked up.

    Actually Howard said 'Yes' but then he put it to a vote and Fred and Robin both said no and Robin went so far as to say she would be gone if Jackie came back. Oh, what might have been..................................

    I doubt Jackie, John, KC, or anyone can write a "Tell All" because of the non-disclosure agreements they all sign before working for Stern . . .

    Like many entertainers they have a desperate need to be the center of attention, even if it's just for a few hundred listeners on Sirius. W/O that forum he's got no forum at all to perform, but also no way to market his schlock either.

    Once Howard retires the books will start. While he has an active career earning 100 mill a year you'd make Wendy the retard look like Stephen Hawking if you did anything that could be seen as harmful to his earning potential.

    :rofl: What's stopping Jackie from doing all the things he said he was going to do when he quit the HSS? Here's a clue. He sucks as a stand-up comedian and has he no comedic writing skills.

    hes not on the show because howard didn't want him on the show, not because he 'quit'.
    you are implying he 'quit' so he could go do other things. but that's not the case. he wanted to work on the show, he just wanted a few more dollars.
    and then he was willing to work on the show for exactly what they offered, but the show didn't want him. which proves their negotiations were not genuine.

    he is doing most of the things he wanted to do everyday, which is not having to wake up before 5AM.
    he does suck(IMO) as a standup comedian. so what? peyton manning sucks as a standup comedian too, but that dont mean he sucked at his role on the colts.
    jackie does have great comedic writing skills. but obviously talent has no bearing on being hired at that position. as proved by benjy being the head writer on the greatest comedy radio show of all time, and john being a writer for the highest rated late night comedy show.
    even someone who hates jackie would agree he's a x100 better writer than those 2.

    You must be Jackie's agent.

    He walked out on the final negotiation on a matter of principle.

    He then decided to throw principle to the curb and ask for the same deal months later only to find out they'd moved on, even though he was warned that it would happen.

    It was like when Dee Dee Ramone left the Ramones. They felt couldn't get rid of him, but when he left the band, they were happy to be rid of him. It's basically a case of lacking the balls to fire someone who you think is useless. Howard and Jackie have both admitted that it wasn't a talent issue, it was a monetary issue. What HASN'T been said is behind the scenes--Howard could pay Benjy 1/5th of what they were paying Jackie and he would get to palm the rest.
