WHITT'S END: 8.16.13

      Whether you're at the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End

   *Two weeks in a row I've turned on The Ticket, only to be sadly disappointed. Last week I was tricked by a "big announcement." Hoping for some clarity on the Tickespn merger, it was only phone toy news. And Thursday afternoon I switched on The Hardline to hear them interview Tony Romo. I'm not making this up: Mike Rhyner and Corby Davidson yapped with the quarterback for close to 40 minutes and never once asked him about his wife's pregnancy or Travis Johnson's biting criticism. I'm sorry, that's inexcusable. And horrible. I enjoy radio that's both entertaining and informative, and those boys woefully struck out on the latter.

   *Raise your hand if you would've made this bet in the Fall of 2008: Tiger Woods Jason Dufner will win a major before Jason Dufner Tiger Woods. Either your arm is up or you're a liar. Nobody saw Tiger's 0-for-18 coming. Surprisingly delicious.

   *Jerry Jones tells a gang-bang of reporters in OxnardTig there likely won't be an inductee into the Ring of Honor this season. Next up should be Darren Woodson. Then Jay Novacek.

   *Again this morning I'm ashamed, embarrassed and angered at what's happened to journalism. And it's not just because my story on Romo's second pregnancy was stolen. Well, actually, that is a big part of it. But also in play here is CBS' 60 Minutes breaking the A-Rod story on his "inner circle" leaking Ryan Braun steroid details to the media in a shameless attempt to take others down with him. But turn on the TV and there are the burglars in Bristol trumpeting "According to ESPN & Media Reports ..." No! Just because you read the story doesn't mean you get to share credit in breaking it. Dammit! I fully realize my Candice Romo pregnancy scoop isn't an axis-tilting story. But again, for my new lil' blog every newsy nugget helps build traction, and audience. So I post my story at 7:30 a.m. Thursday. No mentions. No re-Tweets. No nothing from our local trough of Cowboys writers. Then - what'ya know? - almost 12 hours later there pops up "Romo is pregnant" blurbs from Dallas' Only Daily, ESPN Dallas and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, with nary a mention of why on Earth the writers went to Romo to ask such a question in the first place. And no, FWS-T, Romo didn't call a press conference and "announce" his news. You read my blog, took the information to Romo and then re-wrote it as your own without an ounce of recognition of the story's origin. It's slimy. It's sinful. It's just wrong. Props to NBC 5's Blue Star Blog for the hat tip. That's all it takes to be fair and professional. Our media has deteriorated into a Tour de France peloton, where all the cyclists in the big pack are given the same time so there's really no reason to acknowledge the winner. Shame.

   *I despise Bill Parcells, but always liked his nugget that went "If you're thinking about retirement, you're already retired." Wonder if the Rangers' Lance Berkman fits the adage?

   *Hot.

   *Not.

  1. Agree about asking the Travis Johnson question...but asking about pregnancy? That's ridiculous. Why would we care about that?

    1. Richie won't shut up about the pregnancy only because he broke the story. If Ben and Skin had, he would feel completely different about it. Seriously Rich, do you think you'd care half as much if you didn't break it?

  5. I thought it was a great interview with several great questions. I really don't give a shit about what a terrible former player thinks about Romo, and I'm sure Romo doesn't care either. Also, I'm sure he's excited about having a new kid, but there isn't much there to make for interesting radio.

  7. The video board is bigger in square footage, but unless Houston records with special cameras only a small part of that will actually be able to show a replay. Meanwhile Jerrytron can fill the entire screen with 16:9 1080p video (like your TV) and there are TWO of them.

    Total Houston square footage = 14,549
    Total Dallas square footage = 23,040

  8. I listened to The Ticket the other day at 3 pm. 20 minutes of three or four guys talking over each other about non-topics, nothing to do with sports. And I thought, "This is the number one sports station in the Metroplex??" As a great man said, "What th what??"

    1. Now, I'm certainly not saying it's not a great station. Just didn't like that particular segment.

    2. You my friend are referring to "Why today doesn't suck"(WTDS). That particular segment happens every weekday in the same time slot, the segment is meant to be a trainwreck. Go back to ESPN radio and listen to that crap. The Ticket is number one because its not constant stats and sports. The Ticket is a station for Men that love sports with a sprinkle of other manly topics.

      Stay hard!!

  10. Just so I'm clear you're saying that you "broke" the Romo pregnancy story? So you're saying that you were the first person he called when he found out?

    Also oh great grammar god here's a quote from you're blog today "Whether he's ultimately suspended or not, how do actually think Johnny Goofball - the reigning Heisman Trophy winner" Might want to mix in a "you" in between how and do.

    Since you're up into who's breaking what first here's a story on the Houston video board that "broke" before the one you linked did.
    http://www.houstonchronicle.com/sports/texans/article/Texans-to-unveil-longest-video-board-in-existence-4727218.php

    I have no idea if the Houston Chronicle was the first or not and don't care but they posted the story before the KSAT.COM story you credit in your link. If it's all about journalistic integrity and all that bull shit why do you not find who broke the story first and give them credit??? Hypocrite much??

    As for breaking news I have some AND YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST!!!!

    Drum roll please.............

    I took a massive shit this morning that stopped up the American Standard in my guest bed room. There you have it. I am going to be super pissed if anyone uses this story without linking to this blog. See Richie I'm trying to "build traction" for you.

    4. Come on, RW, you can't bulsh your way around timestamps. You ought to know this. It's how in many ways you nailed Greggo on his bulsh. Please see below. Please check out the link that Storm_71 provided. Has it not yet occurred to you that perhaps the Romo's have been less than forthcoming about the due-date? Ya know, to throw off the scent from people like you; so they can have their child at the hospital in peace? It must be tough having to eat so much crow each and every day. It seems as if dang near 90% of what you say with certainty is, uh, wrong. And your readers not only call you on it, they show you where and why. I stop by here each day, RW. Why? Because you can throw out some good stuff. But this stealing my scoop obsession has got to stop. It just does. Oh, that and correcting others grammar and typos. It only makes your numerous grammatical and syntactical errors that much more egregious.

      Tony Romo's Wife Candice Crawford Is Pregnant…Again!!!
      3/21/2013 10:58 AM ET | Filed under: Baby Blabber • Tony Romo • Pregnancy Talk
      Touchdown!
      Tony Romo has scored off the football field.
      The Dallas Cowboys quarterback has announced that he's having a new baby, and he did it in the most classiest way possible!
      In a room full of fans!!!
      Woohoo!
      His wife Candice Crawford just had a little one last year, and we can't wait to see the new baby pictures in nine months!
      We wonder how Jessica Simpson feels about all of this.
      If we remember correctly she was not too happy when he got engaged - now that he's having a second child, she might feel the need to have a third one after this!!!!!
      See Romo make the announcement (above) !!!

    5. This from Fox News:

      "The newest edition to the Romo family should arrive in late February or early March, after the 2013 season ends."

      So working backwards that means the baby was conceived in May or June. The article you quoted was from March of 2013.

      You do the math dipshit.

    6. Sorry, Anon, er, RW, I didn't create the timestamp. The timestamp and the article are what they are; they were posted when they were posted, you lovely human being, you. This one must really sting, pal. 'Preciate ya, pal.

    7. You do the math RW/Anonymous. Hilton broke the story in March. It came from Mrs. Romo. Dipshit. Twittshit. Screw your "math" (it's arithmetic in this case, by the way, dipshit), Hilton published this in March. It didn't say she wanted to are was planning getting pregnant. It said she was already expecting. How moronic do you have to be to not understand that March comes before April, May, June, July, August, etc.? I guess you have to be RW posting as an Anonymous commenter.

  11. Romo's interview was exactly what I needed as a Romo and Cowboy fan. I don't care if the Hard Line asks about a nobody from nowhere with a nothing opinion - these are all things you rightly wrote about Johnson previously. I look to the Hard Line for entertainment, I got that this week. I look to you for journalism and I got that this week too. Glad Mrs. Romo is with child but don't really care one way or another about the offspring of sports figures or celebrities; Romo said he's blessed and he is.

    On the journalistic integrity concern on which you have expounded more than once: thieves are out there everywhere, including your line of work Richie. Keep doing what you do for us and I may at some point uncloak from anonymous status. Super bad, red and blue.

  15. Wow. Just wow. I was really interested in this blog when you first ramped it up. I never even took your 5 piece story of your Greggo/Firing, etc as bitching or whining. But good grief Richie. Not sure if you are stressed or what but there is a lot of whining, bitching, moaning and waste of time criticism going on here now. You begin this post by ridiculing the Hardline about not asking Romo about his 2nd child? Really? That's sports news? That's relevant to the upcoming 2013 season? That is the first thing they should have asked? I listened to it and it was laid back guy talk with the quarterback of the most famous franchise in the world. Something wrong with that to the tune of needing to ask him a private question about his family? Then more bitching, moaning, whining about credit for breaking stories on here. I have never heard any journalist/sportscaster once bitch openly in public about this. Sure, it might piss them off but they don't cry about it. It is what it is and their is NOTHING you are going to change about it. Thus, accept it. I really have liked your radio and writing but this stuff on here seems like you are one step from sitting in the fetal position in the corner sucking your thumb. Lighten up and get back to what attracted people to you. That crap is not it. I will be back when that changes. Let go of a little ego. It does the spirit good.

They worked together. I would guess the next item he will be posting on him is an obituary. There is no happy ending here, just tragedy. The only question is who is going to feel guilty. There are times to either reach out and let someone make amends, or just let it go. Bill2455

  17. -I might have been the first person to post on your blog "Tickespn". Thanks for the non tip of the hat buddy.((TheRealDirtyP1August 8, 2013 at 11:08 AM---"on the Tickespn,"))

    -It's funny to read about and here the back and forth between the stations. It's not unusual to daily hear a comment about how the Fan sucks, it's never mentioned directly but they're the only one being talked about. Everyone has their personal preferences and the Fan will never overtake the ticket or make a big dent in their audience. The Ticket had, what, a 15 year head start on the Fan? It's a good problem to have, having 3 sports radio stations in one city, and then having sports on my satellite radio(cue entitlement music)

    -there are redneck aggies and there are less redneck aggies. I have a couple of friends that are the latter and they're embarrassed and ready for him to leave. I can respect that from the aggies, and things will be back to normal starting next year at 6-6, and all will be right in the world.

    -The only smart move Spittle made was not firing Elf and Slater BEFORE he got a real answer from BaD. I guess someone higher up gave him a little Radio 101 after the RaGE debacle, firing you guys before he could even offer B&S a contract, and making the audience listen to how many weeks of K&C Masterpiece? Probably ruined that show for a lot of people.

    -I haven't been to the AIC, but really enjoy the Frisco-Allen suburbanplex and my proximity to it. If Cowboys stadium could have waited a couple years longer, who knows what might have been? One thing you'll never hear from anyone on this side of DFW.."I love driving to Arlington for games!"

    -Give me the 630am leafblower. It would be a backup alarm clock, and 630 is a good time to wake up if not 30 minutes earlier every day. That alarm battery chirp drives me nuts, and I can't even take it when I'm talking to someone and I hear it going off in the background. I want to scream "how can you deal with that? aaaaaaaaaa"

    -Good luck on opening "The Buzz" within the next two weeks. I saw the twitter pic you posted the other day and it would be a miracle. As a guy that has opened a pizza place before, it's not always the construction that gets you....it's the permits

    2. Why do people in the east/northeast of the metroplex think they should have everything at the end of their driveways? No one in Tarrant County or west of Dallas ever bitched about having to make an effort and drive for some good entertainment. By the way, its not that hard nor does it take that long to get to either of the stadiums in Arlington from ANYWHERE in Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex and the surrounding suburbs.

    4. +1 for calling out the WATB moaning that they have to drive alllll the way to Arlington. Fine, stay home. Dallas had no chance then and even less now of getting a stadium built. It ain't ever happening. Be glad you have the Stars and Mavericks. If Victory was up for a vote now there I'd put money on it not being built. Dallas, the can't do city.
      Did anybody besides Arlington consider making an offer to Jerry? Did anybody besides Vandergriff want to see the Rangers come to town? They might be the last city in the country to get mass transportation but when it comes to finding some dollars to get the stadiums built they step up. Back in the day Grand Prairie was 5x the size of Arlington. They didn't want malls or any other high-falutin' development. 40 years later it seems like a pretty good idea to them. Even the worn out malls can be turned into LatinoLand and still keep bringing in the sales tax money.

      I shed not one tear for Dallas. West of the Trinity and West of the Brazos can manage to get to Arlington without hollering about it.

  24. Yesterday I watched the opening ceremonies to the Solheim Cup (the Women's Ryder Cup) that is being held in Colorado. The ceremonies themselves were relatively small, quaint and elegant. I was impressed. At the point of the flag raising, first, as is custom, the American flag was raised by the color guard. It was followed by our National Anthem. As it was played the camera panned over the individuals of the American team, and so many had tears running down. It was then followed by the raising of the EU flag and the EU anthem "Ode to Joy" from Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. The European team stood respectfully if unenthusiastic. I suppose I was just struck by the fact that our song, with melody from an old tavern, could draw out (unexpectedly)such emotions from our team of lady professionals, while on the other side one of the most beautiful songs ever written got nothing from theirs. Couldn't help but mention it. Bill2455

  25. Richie, I find your Norm moving to ESPN mid-mornings/make room for the JV. I too found The Hardline's interview with Romo to be poor--but not for the same reason as you. I was glad they didn't bring up the pregnancy. Everyone knows his wife is expecting, it's been beaten to death by the local newscasts (and it will only intensify), and frankly, I don't care about such topics when the season begins in a mere matter of weeks. What I want to hear are football related questions. While they offered a few, the majority of the interview consisted of Corby trying to show any and all how well he can relate to Romo, how they are on the same "level." Couple that with Rhyner's "me too-s" and courtesy laughs, on the whole it was a waste of time. I very much dislike two types of interviews: (i) The purposively and unnecessarily confrontational, and (ii) the let's just shoot the breeze, goof around, and learn little exercise in egotistical (for the host) futility. Yes, the "Any new receivers you're connecting with?" question was a good one; but other than that, it was a wasted segment.

  26. Sorry. I meant to add that I find your Norm/ESPN prediction interesting.

  27. So, while on the fan you make replay a clip and make fun of Rick Reilly when he was caught asking "off camera" to make sure he was credited for breaking a story, but you're whining and moaning about the same thing? Kinda hypocritcal.

    BTW, one of the many things that makes the Ticket enjoyable is not following a script looking for answers to 'Baby News!!!' questions or giving credence to some comments by hapless spares. If you listened for 40 minutes it must have been somewhat interesting to you (and rest of their 11.9 share) despite their obvious shortcomings in radio talent. But, go ahead and rip me and other Ticket listeners for following along. Good luck with the pizza biz.

  28. Always thought one of the movtives why Gavin Spittle gave Ben and Skin RAGE's primetime radio slot at The Fan, was to court Mark Cuban and the Mavs to 105.3 the fan. Because Ben and Skin have a very good "friend relationship" with Mark. That same friend relationship got Skin on TV for the Mavs games, and He should not be on there. I think B&S are good guys but just are not ment for a Prime 2-6 slot. They tried once at the slot and failed, perhaps a morning or lunch slot fits them best. Gavin must be really in trouble now!

    1. Spittle's problem is he's never been good at his job in this market. He couldn't keep Russ on the air, how is he going to keep the Fan on the air and competitive? He must have some kind of blackmail on someone, it didn't take him long to start putting this thing into a nosedive.

  31. Here's what would've happened if the Hardline asked about those two subjects: Romo would've said "Yeah, we're expecting another one and we're really excited about it." and "I'm not focused on what others say. I'm focused on the upcoming season." and that would've been it. They aren't important issues (the kid thing is, but to nobody but the Romo's).

    ReplyDelete
  32. Do you honestly believe that they got the What the what line from you? I have to know. Cause barely anyone in the metroplex listened to your shitty show. I doubt anyone outside of the metroplex did either.

    ReplyDelete
  33. The Hardline aren't that great, but they are better than the other choices. I tried to listen to your show but all you did was try to copy the Ticket and tell us how great you and your life is.

    Corby and Romo are buds, they hang out together and do stuff. So they were probably asked not to bring up the new baby on the way, since it is so early. Even Fish called you out about that. Sounds like all you wanted to hear about was the two things you wrote about.

    More pressing question is why did he not do the interview with the #Cowboys station?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Okay Richie, serious question- if they stole it from you, why did they wait 12 hours to go with their stories?
    and if you have a source who told you, how do you know that they weren't given the same story by the same, or a similar source, but decided to confirm it before printing what (to me) is basically rumor at that point?
    I get that you had a source, but you've also had a source on the Dez injury, on Russ's possible contract issues, Kidd's cocaine use, on Frito leaving being the last supper of the Ticket, etc.
    It seems like you're claiming to be a journalist on one hand, but running thinly sourced stories (or rumors) on the other.
    Do we need to get into a discussion of how far journalism has slipped, that a 'journalist' like you doesn't bother to actually confirm a story before running with it?
    To me, the story is that Romo confirmed it, not that (no offense) a semi-obscure blogger/journalist reports a rumor. Again, maybe that's just me, and MY standards. I get that. But you claim they stole your story, and I get how you would have that suspicion. But do you KNOW it for a fact? Like how the cops keep stuff that only the killer wouild know secret, is there any telltale clue that proves they stole it from you? I just don't get why they steal it, and then wait 12 hours to repost it. Unless their journalistic standards are just higher than yours.

  35. BTW Richie:

    What Is the What: The Autobiography of Valentino Achak Deng is a 2006 novel written by Dave Eggers. It is based on the real life story of Valentino Achak Deng, a Sudanese refugee and member of the Lost Boys of Sudan program.

    Just saying..

  36. Richie,

    As someone who runs a HUGE website that allows "comments," eliminate the anonymous option. It's amazing how these "internet tough guys" will stop posting when they're no longer hiding behind the curtain.

    And yeah, the "houston's screen beats the COWBOYS' screen is a shell game. The COWBOYS have 4 screens compared to houston's 1 and the sq footage is almost double for the BOYS. #HoustonSucks

  37. I, for one, find your content refreshing. Fuck these tools who just love to bitch and moan about your blog. Probably friends of the competition or Greg himself.

    And aren't you just waiting for the day Gavin gets his? I still remember the days when Martin would bury him with their bits to the point he would cry like a little bitch. Never liked the guy. Your Where's Greggo portrayal of him I'm sure is spot on. He'll be taken out with the other basura soon enough.

    Keep up the good work. Many of us out here enjoy your writing. And you need to think hard about bringing the Buzz to Frisco. Arlington is just too far for us on game day, so we'll need that beer and pizza for the big screen.

  39. Hey there Richie,

    The comment on the silliness of the name Root Beer sparked a quick investigation and FYI, it does have it's origins from roots (sassafras)and some versions were alcoholic.

    Have a goodun'

  41. A) Tiny Fey. 30 Rock. Look it up.

    B) Sit-down interview with Romo, Richie is mad because two non-football questions weren't asked. Says interview was shitty from station that pulls as many listeners on the weekend as the Fan pulled in drive time...while Richie was there. Look it up.

    C) Don't look up that last one, but you know it's closer than you would have liked.

    D) Is this blog about sports, or is it about you constantly needing to be cited, credited and acknowledged? Or do you purposefully piss people off so you get page views for rather empty content?

    E) Some idiot above said the Ticket is a shell of its former self. You mean when they had Greggo? You're suffering from classic Good Ol' Day Syndrome.
