Evidently, Trevor Williams blocked a bunch of Pirates fans (and reporters) that criticized him this offseason. Even a few fans that liked a negative tweet about Williams.

DK (and Madden) thought it ridiculous that Trevor got a tribute video.
A tribute video? Dude had 108 starts. Is that the bar that has now been set for tributes?

Who knows. :lol: I had no idea he'd had that many starts, to be honest. My guess is they were sour that they got blocked on the bird website.

Mueller and Dale Lolley going at it in a stupid (but funny) Twitter flame war over the Steelers draft pick. Of course Mueller and Poni were against the Harris pick because they are just contrarians. C'mon Dale, you should know the contest winner better than that!

Legit question for people who live in other cities... Is this level of drama present among the sports media? It seems like every week there is a new spat here.

In Philly there are 2 competing sports radio stations, WIP and ESPN. They always to be at war to some extent.

Where is WFAN (or whatever their call letters were)? Is that in NJ?

I have heard of them, but I didn't think they were in Philly. Google says they are in NY.

Do you mean 97.5 the Fanatic? Or is that the ESPN station?

That makes sense. I was able to pick up that station on my AM radio from State College. Scott Farrell had a show on the station at the time (early 90's I think).

WFAN is in NYC. Original home of Mike and the Mad Dog.

We always used to go on vacation to ocean city right around baseball’s trade deadline. My dad would always take his radio to the beach and listen to WFAN. For that reason, I will always remember how much much Met fans hated the Turk Wendell acquisition
