Let me tell you my brothers about back in the day when Bill Parcells was my coach, well, you could already tell that he was pushing greatness and that he would end up being the GOAT which is what makes me the authority to talk about Bill Parcells my brothers because I used to play for him, and boy did he make us work hard, we were not pampered like the athletes today.

"Ron Wolfley reporting... It's actually Basinonians my young crunk brother !!"

BIM :cool:
Ugh, is he still doing that schtick or the pantera stuff?!

I don't think I've listened since COVID and modified commuting

His act was tired a decade ago

The only thing worse than beating that stuff into the ground is the bloviating whenever he felt his integrity or manlihood was being tested

Yes. He hasn't had an original thought in 15 years

I understand the people who are tired of his schtick, I do. He is a very nice man, I met him many times. He is so kind to my wife and I. It's difficult to hear all this internet bashing on a very kind man. But I guess it goes with the territory.
Ya, he is an institution. I have no problem with him. Have interacted with him a couple times, and he was very cool.

I was always secretly hoping for a show with Franz and Jurecki to see who would out-douchebag the other one.
I got blocked on Facebook by Jurecki. Not even sure why. Just got a new friend request from him the other day (and it is him). Just weird. LOL

I remember him from my time when I lived there. I didn't mind him. I listen to a DFW sports talk station and their morning guys made fun of some of his AZ Cardinals broadcasting at one point.

for some reason this makes me think of the Detroit HC Dan Campbell.

Local sports talk radio has been abysmal for a long, long time here in the "Basin". Wolf may be a nice guy but his schtick is very, very tiring to listen to. Now that I'm retired I don't listed much but, on the few occasions I am driving around, the local shows are just terrible in general IMO.

But, it also could be worse, anyone remember Arnie Spanier? I think that's what the dude's name was.

When Mike Golic and Bruce Jacobs were together the show was hilarious.

I'm tired of the Buttermilk stuff as well.

Last year did business with one sponsor he swore was great.
Took one right up my azz from them. Never again listen to backed sponsors...... doing my own homework.

I actually interviewed with Arnie at the radio station when I was in high school. I didn’t get the job but he was cool enough to call me personally.

That's cool. He just was like fingernails on a chalkboard to listen to to me.

It was a schtick, his tone was completely different in person.

And I was just some dumb kid who wandered in off the street asking about their help wanted sign, LOL. He had no reason to be nice to me.
