We cheer and the band plays.

Corona virus expert, Czar Geoff Calkins & his daily "expert" Dr. guests, said we should only clap (maybe even with gloves on now, thanks to our wonderful County leadership - since I suppose they've never heard of cross contamination) and not cheer with our mouths open, ever again, or we may spread the Corona to those around us. Those breath particles are very dangerous and we should all wear hazmat suits to the LB in the 100 degree heat. How did we ever survive without their wonderful leadership, truly stunning.

Maybe there's something to this if our politicians will just stop opening their mouths.

Calkins lives rent free in some of your cheap mental housing.

He needs to keep his politics out of his work space. Real simple; then he won't piss off one half or the other of his potential customers.

I'd say the same thing if he wrote everything from a more Conservative point of view. If he wrote conservative slanted articles there are 4 or 5 posters on this board that would lose their minds.

i don't dislike Jeff the sports writer (he's actually quite good), but i prefer my sports to not be mixed with politics, and that's why i quit listening to 92.9.

not that he cares, nor the parent company cares, nor did i make any difference to their ratings.

but its my choice to make.

RE: Now is the time to push for the sirens to be removed from the LB
It's funny that Gee-off gets so offended by Clay Travis coming on J&J for a 15-minute bit once per week. Geoff does the same that Travis does, on the opposite side of the spectrum, every single day. And since Liberals are supposedly so tolerant of alternative views, you would think he would welcome a different view. But he blasts away that the station even has Clay on. While at the same time, blasting away at people who tell him to stick to sports.

It really is hilarious.

I agree, he is a helluva sports writer (writer in general) and can bring tears to your eyes with his sentimental articles regarding his parents, sports stories, etc.

He doesn't live rent free in my head as was said above, I usually have 92.9 on as background noise in the office, but have turned it off over the past several months. I'll check in from time to time, but the constant beating of the political drum & doom/gloom outlook on everything has worn thin. Plus, all they do is interview one another from every show and pat each other on the back, rather than have a competing opinion and actually have to be open to other ideas.

He & GP are such great hosts when it relates to sports, they're severely misinformed when it comes to life and it makes me cringe thinking someone that has such a huge platform & could impact so many (GP) in a positive way mocks Christians and routinely talks out of both sides of his mouth. He is a lost soul that finds solace in demeaning others while exhausting his right hand by the constant patting of his own back for hours on end.

One day, these folks will realize that sports is an escape from the day to day grind, for the average US citizen, and we look to sports for a refuge from our normal life for entertainment. We do not look at sports for political opinions, on both sides of the aisle, as politics/sports do no co-exist very well, together. For some reason, the brilliant minds controlling leagues/corporations/etc. have not figured that out just yet, but I believe a harsh reality will set in over the next 5-10 years if we keep hearing political hot takes from people that literally are paid to entertain others. I marvel at their athletic ability because I cannot compete at that high of a level, however, I do not marvel at their ability, as multi-millionaires, to shout down at the middle class and preach their political, misinformed, out of touch jargon.

We get enough of that from the mainstream news networks.

Liberal and conservative have been co-opted by extremes dragging both parties in opposite directions. Maybe an independent can recapture the moderates on both sides of the isle and we can get something accomplished.

Same here. Sports are/were supposed to be an escape from the daily mayhem. Apparently, no more.

Nope. Politics has thoroughly inundated sports. All athletes, teams, and leagues must agree and comply with 'the narrative' or be destroyed. Even silence is now considered a horrible offense.

Don't agree with 'the narrative'? Can't even just keep your mouth shut anymore.

Facism now reins supreme. Agree and comply or your livelihood will be taken from you.
