    So we know that she fired the TV crew, Sabien and others, plus she likely evolved the WUS. But was she on property when any of the other axes fell? Miserable men, back office radio, detailed plugs at the end of show, the block party, SFRT, etc. Any others?

    These were things which were dear to the hearts of the hosts/victims and Howard mercilessly ripped them away.

    She was on during the back office radio era. Jason and Will would comment that Gary was insanely stressed out because his job (as well as the rest of the staff) was put under the microscope and that there were some major things happening in the office. Gary was really stressed because he had to hang up the track suits and actually do some work.

    I think Howard acting like a little bitch after he lost lawsuit is what caused the demise of anything funny.

    I think much of the exits were more like Sirius cutting the shows budget and Marci wielding the ax. So - I don't blame her for those decisions.

    What I can't believe is how everyone has kept their mouth shut. No one has leaked what a shitstorm it must be. Not Gange or High Pitched Mike or Craig Gass, etc. the closest thing to blaming was Gilbert retweeting the NYP article.

    Even if they signed a non disclosure - someone usually finds a way to blab.

    But not in the land of Turks and Wig-wam

    The TV guys were let go because On Demand ended its deal for Howard TV after it was only able to attract "thousands" of fans. It wasn't Marci's call.

    Marci is gorgeous. Lovely eyes. Would make sweet love to her. Beef has to be insanely jealous.

    His tantruming took many forms. Like the start-late/punch-out work ethic. GTD helped galvanized his tantrum.

    I think GTD was/is his vehicle to justify sucking the soul out of the show, MT just executed on his orders.

    Well, he is susceptible to suggestion so it wouldn't surprise me if he was talked into a lot of the changes.

    I mean, what he was doing had worked for years. Why, on his own accord, would he just change the show 180 degrees. I don't buy that it was simply due to the lawsuit or contract end. He never pulled that shit on regular radio or after various other lawsuits.

    Had to be an outside influence on his weak mind.

    Blaming this woman is silly. She just reeks of a scapegoat

    I'm not sure I'm comfortable with everyone ganging up on Turkey. :no:

    She was given the harsh task of re-directing every stray marble to it's true owner.

    I see your point - but it's the timing of the downward spiral - firings - dump button - exclusion of guests - that coincides with Marci joining the show.

    She is the ax man - And its Stern's (Buckwalds) plan. That doesnt make her innocent - and given the queationable "cult-like" reputation of GTD - I believe the additional skepticism is justified.

    If she was a kick as GM from another radio station or TV network I would agree with you - but she's not c

    Like that O&A "futurecast" I posted the other day, he's made a big part of his show bitching about how he can't make the show run the way he wants. It used to be hilarious, then for whatever reason it became ponderous to him.

    Never being happy and never settling got him quite far. We can speculate on what turned that energy on itself: GTD, Marci, change for change's sake, change to FU at Sirius, change because Beff was up his ass, change-change-change has become something that he likes. What we don't have to speculate is the more recent changes have killed the fun and the funny as collateral damage.

    You dismiss the evidence from Jason -- one of the only sleeper-cell true-fans who work for the show.
