It just occurred to me that including sports content, even the reduced amount we have in the Rickless era of the show, has a real hidden cost. The Artie radio and TV shows are CRIPPLED from having any kind of longevity or resale value. You know how Howard Stern has been able to regurgitate and repackage and rerun his old shows endlessly and in various forms ("The Tapes", History of HS, etc., etc.) ? You know how modern sitcoms and dramas are re-run and resold endlessly? How ancient shows like Carol Burnett and Carson and Ed Sullivan and stupid Dean Martin are able to CHARGE for DVDs? These shows included comedy, music, storytelling, and in Stern's case topical news. They did NOT include sports content. Is anyone storing and pulling up old Mike and the Mad Dog episodes to enjoy? Is there a "Ferrall Shuffle" on Sirius I'm unaware of? No one wants to hear discussion of 10 year old NFL draft shuffling, unless something unusual happened. No one will care what a nameless sports blogger or "CBS Sports analyst" thought of the 2012 Knicks a year from now. Yeah, yeah, I know, I'm being a fag because I don't like sports to begin with, but I am guessing I'm right even for people who enjoy the sports aspect of Artie's show. Do you disagree? Am I underestimating the degree to which people can enjoy old sports talk (aside from a relatively few remarkable highlights)? Of course everything ages, but I just think the yesterday's-news fish-wrap effect is more pronounced with sports chat (and with financial and political chat for that matter). Your thoughts?
