    I had no idea he a paid cast member of the show. Also had no idea he had an ISDN line put in his home. Always thought he phoned in. Was shocked to hear he made about $50,000(or maybe more) a year on this video. I'm sure he's still under contract. He said a $1,000 a week and Howard said nothing back to dispute that number. No way was Ralph getting bottom on the barrel "Riley money". Howard would never let that happen. I think they were both low balling it for obvious reasons and was probably getting a bit more than $1,000 a week to be a cast member. :shocked:

    This thread may provoke enough outrage for an East Coast killer virgin.....

    Wiggy never let's me down. Between his fucking back door deals and lies and that Gold Digging fucking mongloid he married it's a full time job just to keep up.

    Ralph makes more than people think. I mean I didn't even know about this money he makes being a cast member but on the WUS a few years back Gary was talking about style and Ralph said on the phone that he'd help him out and Gary replied seriously, "I know what you charge. I can't afford you."

    Why did ralph stop calling into the show? He would stir things up and gave
    interesting insights.

    He is also a cock sucker who stole money during a poker
    game and a tip at a restaurant. One time it appeared he was high on drugs
    and threw up in Howard's hampton house. These were great stories. Now we
    don't hear anything. :dontknow:

    So AGT pays Ralph, Sirius pays him, Howard pays him...clearly, Ralph knows lots of secrets.

    Yeah I actually liked Ralph stirring up crap or his BS. It added to the show with the anger against him. :snicker:

    Ralph has a nice deal for the amount of work he does as compared to the other staffers - I like how Robin chimed in (@ 4:19:15 of the video) after Howard announced Ralph's ISDN line and said Ralph should 'get his ass in here' if he's part of the show.

    Yeah exactly, TP's Ralph YT compilation is actually pretty damn good (the Sirius years), but what is he so busy now running his Geektime brand that he can't call in to contribute? Especially if he has an ISDN line he can almost be on instantaneously right?
