    Like a number of you guys, I'm a big fan of Sal's. The dude has looked for a way into show business since his hilarious attempt at rapping. His prank calls to Gary were legendary--and when he was hired he brought his A-game. In the early Sirius years, Sal provided tons of content for the show and even put his marriage/wife out there for ridicule with the "143" bullshit. His stunts with Richard were notable enough to get him a cameo in that Harold & Kumar sequel...he was really making an impact and it seemed as if he might actually jumpstart a comedy career.

    Most importantly, he was the guy who dared to say that Beth had a horse-face, and if for nothing else, he should be elevated as a patron Saint of Dawgs Saloon for doing that.

    But for whatever reason Stern has the guy locked down pretty tight. He's not allowed to do his own show on H101, and his appearances on the show are fairly infrequent compared to what they were. I feel sorry for Sal. He wanted a career in show business, and had the talent for it, but Stern seems intent to not allow another Stuttering John situation where a cast member gets popular, has outside opportunities, and goes on to develop their own career. Sal deserves better.

    There's a video where Howard says he loves Sal and has always liked him and he has never even been close to fired. I think 95% of Sal's persona is fake and just for show. It's like the "Idaho potato famine" he guessed in a quiz. Someone put up a video showing Sal talking about Ireland's Potato famine pertaining to his wife's cooking a YEAR or so before the funny idiocy "guess" of Idaho.

    On Howard TV behind the scenes he's always been gracious to celebs and workers in the hall and very gracious to George and his partner Brad. I think Sal is funny and not who he portrays on the show. I hope he gets work after THSS.

    Howard loves weak minded people that he can control.

    All those big ass teeth...maybe Howard truly just doesn't want a blowjob.

    He'd end up with less than a nubbin'.

    It seems that Sal and Richard are regaining their show presence while Young Will and Jason are now take the back burner. Howard definitely fucks with his peoples success as he builds em up to shoot em down like skeet. The problem for all four of those guys is that they work under a capped ceiling. So I dunno....but it's gotta be frustrating for those driven boys.

    Howard is tinkering with both Richard and Sal. Amazing that Howard expected Sal to whine about not being asked to pour beer in Richard's asshole as he is incapable of understanding a real friendship that is garnished not by what they can do for you but what you can do for them is this a run on sentence or what?

    Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind… the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with yourself. :clap:

    Seems to be a lockdown on everyone and everything that's funny. The absence of Sal and Richard is really noticeable. I'm beyond sick of in studio appearances by JD and Moses, aka Ronnie
