Miami beat writers are the worst in any market I imagine.

Total pessimists that always bet against the home team. No genuine insight into the teams.

Hopefully Chris Perkins is next
Who are you talking about?

Big O had a talk radio show. Wasn't a beat writer.

I liked Hank- although he could be a jerk at times, but yes Mandich was great. Jon Sciambi I also liked particularly in the beginning before he got a little full of him self.
Sciambi was a great talk show host, but I understand that he had greater ambitions. Hank was also great, as was Mandich. Even the fill-in guys were good on ‘QAM in the 90s. Aside from Crowder, the current sports talk landscape is as entertaining as the current Miami Dolphins.

Talk about going way back to the good days, forgot about those guys.

LeBatard severely disappointed me. I followed his career for a long time. I'd always read his articles in the Herald. The show slowly went downhill after going national. Allowing Mike Ryan to be his executive producer was a bad choice. Lebatard enabled him to be even more sophomoric and now it sounds like a silly frat show. The show was much better when Hochman was the producer, which is why Hochman & Crowder is my favorite local sports talk show by far.

he ignored the obvious talking points:
1 how we are still in the playoff hunt:munch:

2 how our great but not quite superstar QB, the Tanner,is the only one that can save us come hell or highwater.

3 lacked the required awe when discussing the intellectual capabilities of our Guru Genius coach.:dead:

Likely had to do with some personal bullshit, or something that exposed the station to liability.

I would hate listen to Big O’s podcast. I think he had some beef with Omar lately. I wonder if that had anything to do with it. That would be precious, lol.
