    I feel like my team lost the super bowl. There was zero reason for Sirius to cave in to stern except for the fear that it would somehow negatively affect the stock. And if you know and do the math they would have lost nothing substantial by this guy being canned.

    Who among you thought for one minute that this fuck would walk away from 90,000,000 a year large? And make no mistake most of that money is sterns. In quick succession this guy is going to empty those halls of most of his support staff and employ a skeleton crew.

    Yes it's a total joke that he got resigned by SIRIUS but the 90mil figure I'm sure was floated by buchwald. I would bet it's much less.

    I have felt pretty deflated all day too. Thank you for posting about it.

    I think the disappointment is that Stern wins again. No one cares about his scams. He is getting away with it.

    I guess we will get a tell-all movie like that Liberace movie that was on HBO, decades after Howard dies.

    OK good.... I'm not the only person sick to my stomach. I just don't want to hear any more about it.

    I haven't listen to Stern since the day Artie left and felt Sirus could have spend the money more wisely. It appears as a waste of resources and don't see any return on this investment. I would like to see the revenue his program generates and his contract.

    I hate what the show has become, that being said, if you feel "devastaed" by the fact that Sirius re-signed him, maybe you need to find something better to do with your time. Sirius isn't hooking a chip into your brain and making you listen to him.

    1996 Stern ain't walking through those doors. His show will continue to devolve and it's just a fact.

    Yeah, the show sucks and he's a sell out asshole. I don't listen to the modern show very often, only when he has a guest I'm actually interested in hearing, but I'm lost on the idea of Sirius re-signing him affecting someone's mood. Who cares?

    It's the fact that he always wins! He lies to his fans. He pisses on his fans. He fucks over everyone. He sues Sirius. He's lost millions of listeners and he still gets paid. Wtf

    I agree with you on all fronts. I think some people vested a lot of time in Stern and his lack of effort makes them angry and you see shine through.

    A matter of perspective. He got paid, but he doesn't really win anything. He has two gigantic, but empty houses that he allegedly shares with a dumb gold digger who is boring and has tons of cats. His own daughter takes him to task in the newspaper and he doesn't enjoy anything about life. He's living proof that money doesn't make a person happy. If anything he's drowning in his own greed.

    Devastated because Howard re-signed? Devastated? Throw your Sirius in the garbage and move on.

    The full quote was "only severely retarded PCP addicts believe that Howard Stern is getting 90million a year". You blowing your neighbors dog would affect the stock more than Wiggy leaving.

    It seems there's a tiny bit of edge back in his show to me the last few weeks. The Les Moonves bit was kinda funny. Been a few other examples but I can't think of them.

    To be devastated though? :jj: Wtf dude? This aint Hot Rod Magazine pal!
