    ***Official Sports Talk Radio Thread***

    Didn't see where this thread from the old board was started here, so....

    For Tulsa listeners, heard on the radio yesterday that Lauren Rew from the afternoon show here on The Franchise with John Hoover is leaving the station for an unspecified opportunity. I can only assume she could no longer take working with John Hoover on a daily basis but I'm just guessing.

    So there you have it.

    Also noticed that David Garrett wasn't on, they had some different local goobers. Anything going on with him? I know he seems to have a tendency to get fired so just wondering.

      I started this thread as a catch-all radio thread. Sometimes on LT people would make general posts about radio in the sports radio thread so I thought a catch-all radio thread would work better here.

        Ahhh, didn't see that one I guess. But it's racist against Tulsa in the title so I reject it.

            How do you tell the difference between dead air and David Garrett?

            No seriously, I want to know.

              I heard the OKC show during the same time slot will air state wide, at least for now.

                What happened to Roughface on the Franchise's morning show?

                  Saw on the Twitters that he's no longer employed by The Franchise. Apparently, DG was replaced as well on the 6-whatever timeslot. I don't listen anymore to any of them, but I saw it on social media.

                    I believe "Easy Eddie" is going to be on the mornings for the franchise

                      They let Roughface go but kept one of the single most irritating personalities ever in Jessi Stone - not to mention Gilman.

                      I really enjoy Mike Steely but it is a chore to listen to the rest of his crew.

                        Jessi Stone is the worst. Randy Heitz makes a lot of dumb decisions. It's why they turn over the on air "talent" every 9 months

                          Gilman finally turned me completely off their morning show, and I'm a Steely fan. Just about 125% too "I'm a journalist, you're stupid" for my taste. Frustrating thing is that when he was just an infrequent guest, he was far more entertaining/enjoyable.

                            I'm the exact opposite. Gilman and Roughface were the only two I could listen to on the morning show. Steely is why I'm no longer a listener and Stone is brutal as well. Appears I have no reason to go back.

                              Andrew Gilman is one of the reasons to listen to the morning show. I don't always agree with him, but he is typically level headed when he presents an opinion. I can follow his train of thought.

                              I like Steely, but his persona even bores me now. Ms. Stone is cute as hell but that's about it.

                              Colby, Sam and Kara Rice are easily the best. Arguably the best over all OKC airwaves.

                                  The Franchise has the best OU football coverage. Their game day shoes start early and they will have several hours of post game analysis.

                                    It sucks that they got rid of Roughface. He is actually funny. Gillman sucks ass. Can't stand that guy.

                                      I only dislike Gilman bc he seems to try and take the opposite position of whatever popular opinion might be for the sole reason of wanting to argue. No reason you have to agree with popular opinion but I just feel like he argues just to argue and at times he certainly comes across as if he’s the smartest guy ever and needs you to know it.

                                      We we got into it on Twitter one day bc of a joke that he didn’t happen to find funny. I told him he didn’t have to be amused by it and it wasn’t my goal to make him laugh (yes the joke was about him). I finally just had to reply that he was way too sensitive about a non-issue to spend multiple tweets trying to prove a point. To his credit a few days later he did tag a tweet of mine and replied “Now that’s funny”.

                                        Why do they keep f#@king up local sports talk radio? I tend to only listen to national sports talk...and even that is getting bad.

                                            Randy is a proud graduate of The University of Oklahoma, and an avid college baseball fan.

                                                Ever since I started working from home, I've become a fan of the franchise morning show because of the tv channel.. I like the mix of personalities, even Gilman, they need his conflict.. I miss Roughace but Eddie has been a nice surprise, I assume at some point, his podcast & Twitter game will end up getting him booted...

                                                  Not radio but I found myself up early and tuned in to Golic and Wingo. I think I've found a show worse than Skip and Shannon. Who thought that this was any sort of a good idea?

                                                          It was the first hour and I kept checking back during Law & Order commercials and it was terrible. Nothing like a couple of over 50 year old guys trying to be cool and hip. Much like you and me.

                                                                                          OK, I listened while I was at the gym. I've heard much worse arguments on the air.

                                                                                          Traber was trying to get Dean to admit that Tiger "choked".

                                                                                          Dean talked all around it. He kept saying that Tiger has made a remarkable recovery and that he hasn't figured out how to finish yet. That is the closest he would come to admitting that Tiger had "choked".

                                                                                          Then Traber made a comment about "you, Craig and all of Tiger's minions …". Dean strongly objected to having been labelled a minion.

                                                                                          Then Dean told Jim "shut up and let me talk."

                                                                                          Traber got real pissed about that and said "You can't tell me to shut up on the radio. I'm done with this."

                                                                                          So Tramel and Dean continued the conversation for a while longer, but Traber did not say anything more.

                                                                                          At the end, Dean and Traber apologized to each other.

                                                                                          After the break, Traber lit into Craig Humphreys for cutting a promo saying that Jim was "twisting in the wind" for betting 7 years ago that Tiger would never win another major.

                                                                                          Jim said Craig was "absolutely psychotic".

                                                                                          Then Jim asked Tramel "where does the term 'twisting in the wind' come from?" Tramel answered "I think it has to do with hangings."

                                                                                          That was the best part, in my opinion.
                                                                                          Give me Liberty, or give me Death!

                                                                                                  They're usually a stupid pick like Vanderbilt upsetting Georgia. Could that happen? I suppose. But it most likely won't. They always feel like their lock has to be some edgy, out there pick. A lock is Bama pounding Arkansas. Will you win a lot of money off of that? No, but it's pretty much a guaranteed lock. Now, that's not taking into account the line on that game, which I don't know what it is.

                                                                                                  And if your lock record is anything less than 100% then you don't understand what lock means.
