    My thought is that anthony won by a large margin. Now, I don't know what happened before that Monday show where anthony laid things out. So, if anyone can provide some insight, that may change my mind.

    But to me, anthony essentially spoke his mind on that Monday show, explaining his side of the story and really not throwing insults, although he did jibe opies "human garbage" comments a few times, and did lay into opie having a somewhat pissy boy attitude that turned into an elephant in the room.

    Then came opies response the following day. To me, it was childish and nothing more than a billeted list of insults that opie wanted to get out there. Racist, one trick pony, alcoholic, not your bro. I nearly threw my shoe at my computer when he said that he hadn't listened to Anthony's rant. Couldn't tell if he was pulling a howard (I don't know who you are/I don't listen) routine or if he was actually dumb enough to not listen to something, then go on for 30 minutes giving an opinion on something he is clearly I'll informed about... He tried going to jimmy for support, but apparently got shot down... Then it hit me: he was doing the exact thing that anthony accused him of. That was the nail in the coffin... Then opie started crying like a bitch and acting all company man. It was clear to me after that that opie feels superior to Anthony because opie has the fat sirius gig.

    Then Anthony responded. He seemed to have kept it civil and really steered it to provide his viewpoint on the points that opie tried to make.

    My thoughts anyway

    I listened to both and think Anthony came off better and I think he is really funny. Having said that, I think that not giving opie a wedding gift was really a fucked up move. Also, the story about him going to opies brothers resteraunt and expecting to get the red carpet treatment when the place was packed came off very pompous. To work with someone for that long and not speak for 15 years is so fucked up, that's some deep shit...

    They both win, it's a work. If you've listened to O and A over the years, they plot to get over on the listeners, it has always been their pride and joy. Now you have Opie in the am, and Ant in the pm to counter. Perfect.

    It's working, you and countless others fell for it. Classic O&A.

    Opie!!!
    Anthony shot himself in the balls with his whiny rant last week or whenever it was. Before that it was all in favor of him & hate against Dopie.
    After his tantrum I checked the cringefest of the O&A/Cumia reddits and there were people there calling Anthony a faggot, and all the Ant fangirls who had the monopoly of hate (towards Opie) on the reddit pages beforehand were crying that Opie or someone must be creating multiple fake accounts criticizing their racially consumed hero... cause nobody could possibly think Anthony is a douche too.
    Now Anthony has totally backed down and is re-tweeting Dopie's twitter posts :cwl:

    They both lost. Opie lost his golden goose, and Anthony lost his mind.

    Anthony is a rotten person but an entertaining broadcaster. Opie is unlistenable. I guess I can't see the forest for the trees on this one.

    You really don't care what anyone thinks, you just wanted to tell us the correct answer

    ^^This. The bullshit with Ant trying to go into Sirius on Friday with Rogan even makes me believe this more.

    They needed to air some dirty laundry since they'd barely spoken since the firing.

    Anthony came off looking jaded, Opie came off looking aloof. Neither party "won", but I think they needed to have it out and this will actually begin to help mend their relationship.

    So maybe the fans win in the long run.

    But I side with Ant any day of the week, because he's actually funny.
