    Well Wiggy has set a nice precedent for other SiriusXM hosts, now EVERYONE wants his vacation time and schedule. The goal now is to do AS little radio as possible for as much money as you can bilk. And if SIRIUSXM should be pissed at Wiggy for anything besides the whole suing and shitty work ethic thing it's the trickling down of that same mindset to it's other bitter hosts.

    As if ANYONE feels sorry for ANY of these asswipes!?!? But it's truly amazing how ALL these dickbags act like they're mining coal in Wyoming coal shafts or something?? Don't get me wrong, OA have some great bitter points here but it's become so irritating to me how no one think they have to do actual radio anymore. The goal seems to be that of a David Lee Roth one, sign like a 2 to 5 year deal, and hopefully get fired waaaaay before your contract is up so they have to honor it.

    Wiggy's power must be slowly dripping away. Management doesn't give a shit anymore if these 2 trash the former king. Looks like the gag order Stern put on them has been torn to shreds . . .

    Opie hits him pretty hard here too. It's not like "HE FUCKING SUCKS....HE WAS A BIG FUCKING BUST FOR THIS COMPANY AND EVERYONE KNOWS IT!" is subtle or passive-aggressive, that's AS direct as it gets.

    How old is this? I think O&A re-signed a year or more ago.

    I mean I'm passionate about my rant too, NO ONE thinks they have to actual radio anymore. I'm tired of ALL these guys, whether it's Howard or Carolla or OA or Ferrall or Bubba acting like they're doing some PEACE CORPS charity service and aren't getting major $ for simply shooting the shit about whatever they fuck they want.

    The ONLY thing remotely pained about what they do is the morning drive dopey hours. But I believe BOTH shows could change that too if they REALLY wanted to and their agents played hardball. I know I would if I were Howard or OA, I would fight like hell to get off that stupid obsolete schedule.

    This is from yesterday, but it DOES seem like they have a contract ending like every 2 months???!? I wonder if that's even real or more shit they lifted from Wiggy's fake contract hocus-pocus on air schtick?

    I've heard a few hosts, including Jay Thomas, talk about having their salary reduced lately.

    this was from yesterday's show.
    it's probably in this clip, but they make a great point that the show is live almost all the time.

    opie, ant, and jimmy don't take their vacations at the same time. so if opie is gone for a week, jimmy and ant are still there (and they'll usually have someone sit in as well).

    The WORST thing to happen to big talk radio was both OA's firing in 2002 from WNEW and David Lee Roth's KROCK debacle. Now EVERY fucking host is TRYING to get HUGE contracts and then try to sabotage their own shows just enough to get fired early so the company has to pay you the full contract.

    Nope, they signed a two year deal in 2010 which expires in October 2012.

    THAT you can't deny and it's a fantastic system and point! Howard is too much of a fucking egomaniac to let anyone else steer the ship so we get to hear "Best of Sam Kinison" for the 10000000x.

    I would TOTALLY take a fill in host with like Kimmel/Carolla or Chris Rock or Probst/Maines etc

    Oh ok, thanks. I wasn't trying to be some John Manelli radio know-it-all, it's just that I can't believe how time fucking flies with shit like this??

    I remember actually crying (first time in a while) on the DL at my god-son's HS graduation with sun-glasses on at the thought of him being like 4 or 6 or 8. Because it literally felt like yesterday in that moment, as well as all his friends I watched grow up with him at the same graduation. It also made ME feel old, and I couldn't shake it since.

    You're welcome, I chopped that up from about an hour and change. They meander and jump all over the place alot, so it can be a bitch a to isolate a specific topic with those 2.
