    Chris Williams on M&M

    Driving home last night, I heard that Chris W. will be on M&M tonight. So for those members looking for possible answers to the resignation of Chris from CN, you may get your wish. Discussion was brought up about asking the tough questions, and Miller was unsure if he would do so, but stated he reminded Chris of their gritty nature on the show and it may come up. I for one would stay away from it. The event has passed, and its time to put it behind us, but then that wouldn't be good reporting I suppose. I guess thats why Im not in the media. So enjoy!

    Re: Chris Williams on M&M

    Ken Miller informed me just a bit ago that Chris has decided not to appear on the show today.

    He has decided to take the high road on this and I applaud him for it. I would love to listen to him give his honest opinion, as I'm quite upset by how this has been handled, yet I can respect his position and will follow suit.

    Ken wanted me to pass this along to everyone that may be expecting Chris on KXNO today.

    Re: Chris Williams on M&M

    Is there something I'm missing or why all the "Chris got the shaft" talk? I'm out of state and about all I know is that Deace took back CN and Chris took a job with the Tribune. I'm assuming by your posts that there's more to it but from the outside observer you sound pretty bitter about the whole thing.

    Thanks for the update. I was hoping he would stay on too, but would choose to talk about this future and current cyclone related topics and not get on the discussion of the past. As someone stated before, though Chris is in a public profession that prospers off the gossip and news of others, it is still his private and personal life. And if he chooses, and rightfully should, to not talk about such a thing, then everyone should respect that.

    Re: Chris Williams on M&M

    I'm going to stick to the facts...

    - Chris and Brent are no longer with CN. Chris has a position with the Tribune, I'm not aware of anything new for Brent.

    - Chris and Brent immediately no longer had access to the premium board

    - Chris and Brent both posted separate farewells, thanking everyone - including CN, Jon and Steve. I found them to be heartfelt thank yous and very well written. Responses to these by other members were similar to my own.

    - The farewells by Chris and Brent were deleted from the message board after about an hour or two of existence. So were almost any thread discussing the departure of Chris and Brent.

    - CN maintains Chris and Brent are welcome to post on CN.

    Anything else is specualtion, rumors, etc. I am no longer going to get into that stuff (or do my best not to - I'm sure my emotions will get the best of me another time or two and I'll slip up). Respecting Chris and Brent is really what my priority is and it's unfair to them for this to drag out.

    As someone reminded me this morning, these two men are not characters on a TV show or something. They're real people. We often forget that, including myself.

    I wish them the best of luck and hope like heck we'll continue to see them remain connected to ISU athletics.

    Re: Chris Williams on M&M

    I guess I'm not sure though why Chris would suddenly decide not to come on M&M's show. Its not like he would have to talk about CN or whatever happened there, and Ken wouldn't need to ask anything about it and we know that Marty is oblivious to any of the goings on there.

    I mean, he could just come on and talk about Cyclone sports...just like always.

    Re: Chris Williams on M&M

    Sounds like Deace fired them and came back. Maybe they showed too much free content and too much talent? Neither Brent or Chris wanted to leave? Both weere better than the other pay site. Sounds like a BIG STORY to me. Deciding at last minute to cancel an appearance is weird. Let's hear more. Looks like them media has a many changes as the athletic department has. Hoping to have a good season in one of the two sports soon. Waiting to hear more about commitments soon also.


    CFH HMagic bball season next year.

    Re: Chris Williams on M&M

    I think people are making something out of nothing. So Chris changed Jobs. So what. Everybody changes jobs. Seems like people like drama. When you quit your job do you still get benefits from your old job? No. They cut you off. Sounds like Chris and Brent got cut off.

    To be quite honest it's non of our business.
