What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
I'm very disappointed in Tom for his promotion of soulja boy and his music. It is explicit 'music' that, in my humble opinion, should be kept from kids and at the very least downplayed on the air if you have to mention it at all. Perry Como is pretty lame, but at least respectable. Keep it to baseball, where you usually show some class.

I wasn't at all surprised to see a thread titled "Disappointed in Tom". I was surprised, however, to see that it was for that reason. Really, all the bones you could pick with Tom, and your biggest one is promotion of explicit music? Pretty lame.
Who the hell is Tom and why should any of us care?
Grieve. Got it. Liten to Nadel and mute those TV cookie-obsessed clowns.
Tom obviously knew nothing about Soulja Boy.
Get over it. Whine to your Sunday school class if you have to. They might care. We don't.
Last year TAG was insufferable. This year he seems to have relaxed a lot more. FSSW is still nowhere near the radio heroes, but it has stepped its game up. Compared to the ESPN crew last Sunday they are doing great.
I have no idea who Soulja is. There has been a lot of Elvis music talk lately so maybe it an Elvis favorite. I wouldn't tag that on Grieve.
I don't mind Grieve and Busby, but they're definitely a second choice to Nadel and HIcks. I liked Hicks well enough when he started last year, but this year the pair is approaching a level of entertainment and quality game-calling reminiscent of Holtz and Nadel. In my opinion, of course. Love the vocabulary game, and how they prompt each other to the edge of giggling.
I don't even know what to say. I am sure Tom had no idea the lyrics were explicit or it just didn't occur to him. Im a dad so I understand, but seriously, if you are worried about your children hearing explicit lyrics you likely have a problem with sheltering them. I am not saying they should hear that garbage all the time, certainly not, but the reality is that they will be exposed to stuff whether you like it or not. You need to be there to form the way they respond to negative stimuli instead of simply having an attitude of sheltering them. Shelters like that always cave in, usually right on top of your kid's head when they respond negatively to negative stimuli because you were always too worried about shielding them than about giving them the tools they need to avoid falling into negative behavior.
@JD... your first response in this thread still has me weak with laughter. I know you take a beating for your antics on this board, but if you take the blame for the losses, you get credit for the victories.
I find it far more offensive when people want to censor something that isn't an issue. If you were really that dissappointed though why bother writing us? Write the network. They obviously listen to fans. Even with all the talk about Soulja Boy Murphy's song won the twitter poll. So the explicit song with lyrics about ejaculating on to a woman's back and using a sheet to stick it on her lost. Be happy with that.
Whose song won the second night? I wanted to vote for Ian's "Black Betty", but they went with "Superstition" instead. And then I had to leave so I didn't see the results.
Seriously girls-who gives a shit?
Seriously, grow a dick
Superman that ho!
Wow somebody has a 'dick' fetish. OOPS
