A RED NATION REALITY CHECK THAT ROCKETS FANS WON'T LOVE

I WANTED TO DEMONSTRATE WHY IN MY OPINION THAT IT'S RIDICULOUS FOR FANS AND MEDIA TO KEEP SAYING THAT THEY LIKE THE ROCKETS' CHANCES IN A 7-GAME PLAYOFF SERIES VERSUS THE GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS.

KEEP IN MIND WHILE VIEWING THE STATS THAT I'VE LISTED BELOW,  GOLDEN STATE SWEPT THE REGULAR SEASON SERIES WITH THE ROCKETS, 4-0.

NBA TEAM STATS FOR HOUSTON AND GOLDEN STATE - 


POINTS PER GAME:

GOLDEN STATE - 1ST

ROCKETS - 7TH


FIELD GOAL %:

GOLDEN STATE - 1ST

ROCKETS -21ST


FREE THROW %:

GOLDEN STATE - 4TH

ROCKETS - 28TH


REBOUNDS PER GAME:

GOLDEN STATE - 8TH

ROCKETS - 13TH


STEALS PER GAME:

GOLDEN STATE - 4TH

ROCKETS - 1ST


BLOCKS PER GAME:

GOLDEN STATE - 2ND

STOP THE MADNESS FOLKS!

THE ROCKETS IN THEIR PRESENT BASKETBALL STATE DO NOT BELONG ON THE HARDWOOD FLOOR WITH GOLDEN STATE.

NICK WRIGHT SNUBS ND KALU


NICK WRIGHT SNUBS ND KALU
Written By: LM
1.27.2015

In the world of sports talk radio, everything is phony.  It appears, Sports Radio 610's Nick Wright has changed the old antiquated radio code of not mentioning a competitor to flat out lying about their current situation.

In this audio you will hear Nick and company acknowledge ND Kalu several times in addition to Nick saying I don't know what he's doing now.  Listen Below

Nick Wright on ND KALU


Well, let me help Nick.  ND Kalu just happens to be one of the multiple shows who's kicking your ass in ratings.  I fully understand not mentioning 790 Call letters but to flat out lie?  Hell just say your competitor.


Thanks to @Chad_Schwartz for the heads up.

LET'S TALK SOME SUPER BOWL Xs AND Os! - CRAIG SHELTON - 1/26/2015




LET'S TALK SOME SUPER BOWL Xs AND Os!
Written by: Craig Shelton
Date posted: 1/26/2015




For my money, the one guy no one is talking about whose play will be paramount, if the Patriots are to slow down Seattle's offensive "read looks" successfully, is the Pat's second year versatile LB, Jamie Collins.

Collins is a FREAKING MONSTER and is the ideal type of athlete for Bill Belichick's philosophy in regards to causing confusion for QBs in the front seven.

Collins' size (6-3, 250) and remarkable speed coupled with his ability to play inside in double A gap looks, as well as the ability to be effective outside and in coverage, gives New England an advantage in containing Russell Wilson. It's also an edge in defending the #BeastMode lead run game few opponents can boast.

I have Seattle winning Super Bowl 49, but if the Patriots overcome the adversity surrounding two weeks of #DeflateGate driven media bantering, put your money on Jamie Collins being a huge part of how New England's defense got the job done.

I love this kid!

DEFLATE GATE IS A MEDIA DRIVEN FAIL BY LM




DEFLATE GATE IS A "MEDIA FAIL" 
Written By: LM
1.25.2015

As I observed the media lose their minds over #DeflateGate , it hit me.

  • The media is trying to become the story
  • The media is trying to damage Bill Belichik's and Tom Brady's relationship (salt).

Everyone in the media is trying their best to get their "zingers" in with a ball joke.  The need for a like, favorite or retweet has consumed them.

In their lust for controversy, they sat in the dark and waited for anything, BAM, Bill Belichick said he don't touch the footballs every play, isn't it obvious, he's throwing Tom Brady under the bus.

Frankly, I do not give a flying crap about the proper inflation of footballs..  This is the biggest non story of 2015 and we are only a month in.

THE MEDIA

Some fans are saying, "We don't want to hear this" and the media will reply with the ratings of ESPN or insert your major network. Basically, they are gauging local interest in a story on a national level.

It appears, the media do not understand basic economics.  According to the local media, because of ESPN's (national) ratings, everyone wants to hear it.

Elastic - cheap product that will sell because it cheap
Inelastic - a necessity that will sell at almost any cost

Most of the media drivel is cheap and lazy

The following corporations has some of the best sales

  • McDonalds
  • Ford
  • Budweiser

I look at current media the way I look at those corporations; mass produced, low quality and very cheap.  Of course nimrods are going to eat what you feed them, you drive it down their throats 24/7

WRAP IT UP

Lets revisit basic economics, would #DeflateGlate be huge if all Sports Media was a pay service?  It's cheap information for consumers who refuse to think for themselves.

In all honesty, it burns me up when I hear the media go to "EVERYONE WANTS TO HEAR IT" followed by "I wish the story would go away".  Well stop talking about it and control your show.  I truly do not understand the personalities who say they are tired of the story and still hit it hard.

Lastly, I would like to give the 97.5 THE BLITZ the "No Balls Award".  Fred Faour and AJ Hoffman were the only local show (I heard) that did not let the deflated ball story dominate their show.  Fred and AJ attacked the topic in moderation but continued to conduct their show as normal.

JOSH INNES AND LANCE ZIERLEIN ON AIR TOGETHER? WTF! BY LM

JOSH INNES AND LANCE ZIERLEIN  ON AIR, TOGETHER? WTF!
Written By: LM
1.22.2015

Of course the title is misleading, Josh Innes (WIP 94.1) and Lance Zierlein (KBME 790) buried the hatchet.

WHAT BURIED HATCHET?

Josh worked for Sports Radio 610 for approximately four years.  Josh went at established "local personalities" when he partnered with Rich Lord with more visibility.  Part of the establishment Josh targeted was Lance Zierlein who was currently employed at 1560 The Game.  Lance would jab back on air but 1560 The Game's signal was not as powerful enough to reach a lot of fans.  Twitter was in it's infancy.

During minor jabs between the two "here and there" Lance was was in the process of joining Sports Talk 790's THE BIG SHOW.  A station with much more audience reach than Lance's previous employer.  Lance worked mornings and Josh afternoons. During that time period, there were a couple occasions, the two "twitter fought".

Hind-site, it appeared Josh went out of his way to knock Lance off the mountain.  Lance was/is one of the most popular sports personalities in Houston by way of Sports Radio 610.  Lance is known as the "sports guy" in Houston but in reality, he's just  a "me guy" too.  Me guy, wants the attention.  He is very similar to Josh with a deep sports background.

All in all, Josh and Lance were fierce competitors.  They were not competing via time-slots although later they did battle head to head when Josh was at the end of his tenure in Houston and Lance partnered with Charlie Pallilo.

courtesy @dustinbennett76  
In short, Lance and Josh did not like each other (professionally)  but a weird thing occurred, Sports Radio 610 (Josh's Employer) hired a personality (Nick Wright) that went at Lance.  Josh being the competitor he is, didn't really care for his coworker Nick either.   It's my guess, both did not like Nick which probably brought them together.  #CommonEnemy

Fast Forward to 2015, Lance and Josh on air together talking 2015 NFL Draft in a cordial manner.

Below is audio of Josh Innes welcoming Lance Zierlein on his show in Philadelphia, hats off to Josh for telling his audience, he and Lance had BAD BLOOD in Houston.   Two dominant personalities in a major market with different styles, Josh and Lance.
