Poni is really pushing the Winston to the Steelers as a back-up thing.
Still?

Looks like it, the only time I see it, is when someone re-tweets how stupid it is.

Is he going to play for $1mm?

This is a pretty poor gimmick by Poni. He wants this to happen just he can scream that he pushed for it and was the source of it (and make national news) and would talk up his dog as a credible source that agrees with him.

Wish he'd just leave already and go to the parent station to do national stuff, he can take whoever else sucks with him.

From the brief moments I’ve heard of the various sports radio shows over the past month, Madden and Zeise’s shows seem the most unchanged. Madden, for better or worse, has always been able to talk about other things and Zeise is still bumblin, stumblin, and grumblin through god knows what.

I will say this whole time off thing has made Madden an insufferable turd on Twitter. Him and Zeise have both joined Wendy Bell at times.

I haven't listened much in awhile. I'll try two times a week when I go out in the car to my kid's school to pick up food but everytime they are on a commercial my whole drive, no surprise there. I imagine PM Team is just talking nonstop about Jameis to the Steelers

So I guess Dale Lolley of DKPS wrote a piece about how Jameis to the Steelers is a dumb idea and didn’t credit Poni with the idea (I knew this would happen, he’ll always want credit for it) and instead Dale wrote “local radio personality”. Of course Poni and Mueller start pouting:

Lol Mullsy sounds a bit jealous he wasnt mentioned.

"They didnt even bother acknowledging me, but if they had they probably would have done the same thing to me. I ripped them before. Poni's professional. I'm sorta the bad boy of the afternoon."

This dude is so embarrassing because I really believe he said that, if he didn’t.

During COVID, I haven't listened to sports talk for 5 weeks. Madden has become insufferable to me.

Do other teams backup players have the same thin skin the steelers backups all seem to have?

I actually took that as Banner joking based on how he reacts on Twitter.

TIL that Deadspin, which fired writers for not sticking to sports and subsequently had every other writer quit, hired a whole new batch of less talented writers like last month and they’re apparently not being forced to stick to sports. What a colossal **** up.

I just visited the site for the first time in months. Yikes. I wasn't a fan of Deadspin getting more and more heavy-handed from a political standpoint, but I could appreciate that their writers did a good job. It seems like the new writers are trying to come up with edgy headlines and content in an effort to live up to their predecessors and failing miserably.

Ventured over there today and saw an article about the most overrated NHL players since 1990. Started off with Brodeur, Hull, and Jagr. I can’t continue scrolling the rest of the names they incorrectly discuss.

I like people putting actual thought into it considering all it takes is for someone to eat at Primantis or an athlete to wear a hat from one of the other teams and Pittsburgh Dad Jr. falls in love. I remember something like Jeff Capel went to a Buccos game his first weekend in town and that meant "HE GETS IT! HE'S ONE OF US."
