    Sports Soundoff

    Remember when they used to have callers on that show? Lately it's been all back and forth, and skits and bhlah. Esp. last night. I think they had maybe 10 callers or less. Although I liked the Chiz**** nascar spoof.

    They didn't really talk about much. That's why I like a few callers to maybe "add" to the conv. Bulls fan though.

    They take a lot more callers when they have their hour long shows during the football and basketball seasons. Truth be told, I mute it as soon as they start taking callers.

    I like to hear at least a few calls. I think they're starting to think they are funnier then they really are.

    I miss the show, be happy that you get to watch it at all. I do catch most of it online Monday's during work though. That reminds me....

    I like the skits a lot better anyway. Most of the callers are drunk and sound stupid anyway.

    They dont have "I think" posted online this week. And that is the only part of the show I missed last night. Of course.

    And yeah, 95% of the callers are just brutal. I do miss the days when it was live though and the pranksters would call in. Funny stuff.

    I'll agree that alot of the callers sound stupid. And a few of the skits are good, but these two are getting to full of themselves. They crack up over each others remarks, keep talking nonstop, and wasn't this supposed to be a call in show?

    Especially Willie. They are going with the Jim Rome model which is less of you and more of us is better for the show.

    +1. The only time I enjoy the callers is when an angry nebraska fan calls in and tells them how bad their show is

    Yeah, I don't see a lot of good coming from more callers on there.
