    Sure, nothing would delight most of us more than seeing the present Poseur of All Media get his comeuppance, having to slink off into the sunset because no one, including Sirius values his "relevancy" enough to pay him what he thinks he still deserves.

    It no doubt would be nice Karmic payback, especially after his AGT firing, for us fans being pissed on, lied to, baited and switched, marginalized as cash cows, taken for granted and generally devalued.

    However, if you stop and think about it, Wiggy and his Whorse have become this forum's own Wackpackers.

    Between their self-aggrandizing posturing and antics, his crowbarred-in product placements, his lisp, his hairline, her failed attempts at attaining even F-list celebrity, his grandiose, bullshit claims, their in-your-face hypocrisies (and that includes Robin too), the endless Instagram stream of pics, the fawning over her by paid Mumbai followers, etc and so forth, this comprises the fodder which enlivens, nurtures and sustains this forum.

    The Shed HS forum a special place where most of us are disillusioned fans can unite in our disgust of what Wiggy has morphed into and contempt for his sub-85 IQ'd beard. I suspect that deprived of our own Wackpackers' "lifeline" this board would probably first "evolve" into a nostalgic clusterfuck before slowly fading away and/or morphing into the bar.

    Do we really want that to happen? I for one hope that either he resigns with Sirius at a low ball figure or hooks up somewhere else. I'd miss this board and most of its members too much otherwise. I'd much prefer to see Stern eat a little crow and stick around in the public's consciousness rather than lose this board's vibe and possibly its character or existence.

    You?

    All I want is to laugh again. The rest is irrelevant.

    I'd like to see whatever is left of his career fail miserably along with a never-ending series of embarrassing and humiliating news stories about Howard and Beth. That would still give us plenty to talk about and provide a lot of enjoyment.

    Unless Howard agrees to a pay cut to stay at Sirius it's over for him. You guys will finally have your revenge

    Get the old guys minus Stern...let them goof on him.

    Beth will always be on social media...she's much more entertaining.

    We didn't fire Wiggy from AGT. Wiggy fired himself for dropping the ratings 30%. If SiriusXM does the same its not from anything we did, it's because Wiggy is a tired old queen with a 100K varvatos wardrobe.

    It doesn't matter what anybody here wants. Wiggy set the wheels in motion for all of this a long time ago. We're just watching this slow moving train wreck. No matter how bad things get his mental illnesses won't allow him to go away completely. He will always be there as the dawg shed punching bag.

    I can see him getting a $250 million contract. $50 million per year for the next five years for a two-day work week. Based on the extra day off, the money would be equivalent to the last ten years...

    Wiggy will be around for a while.
    He will most likely re-sign with Sirius.
    He will never fade into oblivion unless he becomes really old and decrepit.

    First......"Our own whack packers" Is so profound....
    I was in awe for a little while.....

    Second.....His Whorse will never allow him to just fade away...
    This is the cunt that pushed him into the arms of Kimmel at
    His and Molly's wedding to disrupt their dance......Think that if
    he is thrown out at SXM......We might witness acts of desparation we have never seen before.......Possible?

    I don't think there's anything to worry about for another 5 years or so. Most importantly, Howchie thinks he's still relevant and there is always some idiot in the entertainment business who is going to give Wiggy a platform because they think he can be "hot" again. And if Howard does retire, I think kittens, Instagram and his moronic wife will be an unstoppable force for years to come.

    Wiggy's descent to the 21st Century Tiny Tim continues.

    When Wiggy appears tiptoes through the tulips with Miss Horsy to his final local shopping center autograph signing event I will still be enjoying the fall.
