    Call me dumb, but something just isn't right. I feel that something isn't being said, like there is some deep tension going on between Opie and Ant that they refuse to acknowledge, but can be felt by the fans... Any thoughts?

    Opie & Anthony were not close off air (not a bad thing, but Jimmy & Ant & Op & Jimmy were closer as friends than Ant & Op)

    Also Opie takes radio business very personal. Any listener knows that.

    My take (& others) is that Ant used the negativity from "pic-gate" to branch out on his own. The SXM contract was up soon and he could get more publicity this way than just petering out as a show.
    I would think that would anger Opie in that he seemed OK to hurt the show to gain personally. It also pits Opie vs Cumia in their old fans minds & Op loses that more than not.
    Cumia always seemed to realize that the O&A show was not getting bigger & they would never get treated better
    There were also strong rumors that before they started the last contract that they wanted to do Opie in morning & Cumia in afternoons with Jimmy going back & forth.

    They currently rarely mention each other on their respective shows.Anthony said a few weeks ago he has not really talked to him much,and that his current show would not easily accomadate Opie.Anthony says hes making more $ now than with Sirius.Its over and they both know it.

    Anthony said it best. What made the show work was the unique chemistry of O&A&J & that won't be repeated by just Ant & by O&J

    Opie said a few shows back he would do Anthonys show some day,or something to that effect.
