    Another Marty Tirade...

    OK Marty is now going overboard.

    He is barking about the public announcer telling people about the accident on I35 and how that was low class. He is saying that he had a friend and kids who left in the same timeline that could have put them at the accident so a whole lot of people were concerned about loved ones that didn't need to know why they were closing the highway.

    It sucks that people died, but Marty is going a little overboard. I didn't think it was out of line at all.

    What an idiot. I thought it was fine. The serious tone is to make sure people don't go that way.

    Re: Another Marty Tirade...

    I was under the impression that the annoucer was just reading what someone from law enforcement asked him to read.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: Another Marty Tirade...

    it was very sad news, it took my mind away from the football game and made me think about what's really important, my prayers are with the families....but yeah Marty is blowing it out of proportion, that's my opinion anyway...

    Re: Another Marty Tirade...

    That is overboard. They just said there was an accident, nothing about fatalities. They were trying to avoid further problems by alerting fans of this so they would not congest traffic any more than it already was.

    Maybe not having any hair on his head now he took in a few too many sun rays that melted his brain even more...

    Re: Another Marty Tirade...

    What bothered me actually was the ref who interrupted the announcement. Obviously this is an important issue, and so is the game, but you could clearly hear that the announcer was talking, and not just about nothing.

    Re: Another Marty Tirade...

    What was he supposed to say? That I-35 was closed but not why? Wouldn't you assume that it was an accident? They don't close roads on sunny summer days for any other reason.

    Re: Another Marty Tirade...

    I have an idea. If this would ever happen again how about just saying "no one in Ames is allowed to leave. We can't tell you why because it may worry Marty".

    Re: Another Marty Tirade...

    I just heard that and was confused also. What could they have said that wouldn't have made you think serious accident? I don't think their is anything they could have said that wouldn't have alarmed people short of lying about why it was closed.

    Careful, he will read your e-mail address out loud on air!

    The Highway Patrol would want them to announce the road being closed. This is to prevent any further accidents from mass congestion. Marty is a blow horn who needs to get a life.

    Re: Another Marty Tirade...

    I had friends leaving south bound probably the same time. It scared the hell out of me, but it was something that needed to be said. It was a serious matter. 1/2 of the fans were probably heading that way after the game. Its just a common sense thing to do.

    Marty is another person that lacks common sense but some reason gets to talk on the radio. Man why can't we get some real talent in this city.

    Re: Another Marty Tirade...

    I don't know why Toyota of Des Moines and Mazzotti's bother's having this clown promote their business? Seriously, he's a nut job and how after some of his tirades I'm surprised there is not someone there waiting for him in the parking lot. Not a guy's name I want associated with my business.

    OMG, KXNO just told people to avoid Highway 65 because of a serious accident! Bad job outta you! LOL!
