    Lets face it,Opie has a kid in private school,a deluxe pad in manhattan,a beach house and more . Even with a pay cut,he won`t be able to pass up the 1-2 million dollar a yr contract,and Jimmy needs the gig to promote his comedy shows,They won`t get a better offer anywhere.Anyone disagree?

    That is so true. It would suck for him to lose the Sirius gig. Whatever they pay him cannot be anywhere near what it costs to keep the Stern show going with all the support staff they have to employ there.

    I still don't understand how Sirius pays all Howard's staff when they are only on the air those few hours/week. Guess it all has to do with advertising dollars, but hard to imagine they are anywhere near what they used to be.

    O and J are cheaper to pay for sure. And would Sal,Erock,Roland Sam still have jobs if Opie left?

    Opie is the gobot version of Howard is yet another way, he is happy Ant is gone since he (like Artie) was the fan favorite on the show. So now Opie can have total control of the show to push his hack shit jokes (repeated twice in case you didnt hear him say it the first time)

    He might not get a pay cut. SXM is saving on Cumia's salary remember ($3 million a year reportedly)

    A good point.

    As I've said in the past, I think O + J are going to stay at SXM. Jimmy might actually even be able to get a raise now.

    He should, he is more of a co-host now.
    I am listening to Best Of now (Nikki Glaser) & they are pretty comfortable now. The first few weeks were weird. It is not as edgy, but I like it

    How about making less since 1/3 of the act is gone. Its funny no matter who leaves no matter what star. Sir. Radio keeps charging the same price.

    The idea that SXM might consider changing the price because they fired Cumia is hysterical

    The real question is, will there be major backlash on the part of the fans? Hard to tell, but I have noticed, in my own loser way, that view counts on Youtube for the Opie and Jimmy show have taken a major dive since Ant left...

    I still can't believe O&A ended the way it did after 20+ years, over nothing.

    I hope the new show isn't just the old show minus Anthony.

    Interesting point. Means allot abandoned ship.My guess is if the advertising $ stays up there,thats a big deal for Sirius. As per subs,not sure how many they lost due to Ants firing.O and J are getting up there,no way Opie wants to start working in another state,he has a good life in NYC,wife/kids.Jimmy said he makes more off the comedy,which he pushes all week on the show,so he will stay too.

    I only got to hear 20 months of their show,just got best of Sirius in oct 2012,but it was great,and better than O and J for sure.At least we get Jocktober,Ant won`t do it I guess.

    Well,Jimmys done Ants show twice in person,so who knows.Opie said he would do Ants show at some point,Sirius may not be thrilled with that is my guess.
