Does anyone know what happen to that twit Mark Madden that used to broadcast on 1250 espn in Pittsburgh. That jerk hated the steelers and just wondered if he was ran out of town on a rail?

He needs to go back to calling "wrastling" matches and leave real sports commentary to the professionals.

I never could stand listening to him, he was the Rush Limbaugh of sports. If you didn't agree with him, you must have been an idiot. His favorite sports were wrestling and soccer and he hated the Steelers. How did he get his job in Pittsburgh? I remember that he got fired for saying something stupid on the air (which I find ironic since that was a normal day for him), but I don't remember what he actually said that got him canned.

He made some off-color remarks about Ted Kennedy's cancer and got canned.

I wouldn't say he hates the Steelers, just he isn't crazy in love with them.

That's terrible. He should be ashamed of himself, making fun of someone with cancer!! I never cared for his attitude. He was a know-it-all and would never even consider someone else might have a valid point, if it differed from his own.

Sorry, Neil - all that fat load knows how to do is insult and berate people, including the Steelers.

Ohhhh wait - he does know how to down a 21 cut Big Daddy pizza in one sitting.

Of all the media jocks out there, I loathe him the most.

He's bad, but not as bad as Rush Limbaugh.

I look at Madden this way:

The guy knows hockey, wrestling and soccer more than oneone else in the Burgh with a regular sports show. He knows little to nothing about baseball and he picks his points on the Steelers. I have never heard him mention basketball more than a quick sentence about the Panthers.

One thing I give him credit for, he gets ratings and makes a great living doing it the way he does. Why not put down 21 slices? He won't see the age 55 anyways...

I think :pig:ot is more appropriate. :chuckle:

I am no fan of Ted Kennedy's but I truly sympathize with him on his battle with cancer and pray for him. This is what Madden said ON THE AIR:

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/08144/884238-194.stm

"I'm very disappointed to hear that Senator Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts is near death because of a brain tumor. I always hoped Senator Kennedy would live long enough to be assassinated.

"I wonder if he got a card from the Kopechnes."


He should be strung up by his cahoonas. On second thought - that would be impossible - he doesn't have any, except hiding in a studio behind his microphone where those hog jowls of his couldn't be broken for the way he speaks to and about people.

Cause HE is the devil right? :rolleyes: give it a rest.

I bet neither of you have even listened to one full three hour show before making those comments.

ANd no, I don't listen to him. If I am in a car, I may the radio on to him, but more oftne than not, I will plug in my phone (mp3) or turn it to a sports channel.

Here is how I feel about him. I HATED him on 1250. Wanted to punch him in the face. His show on the X is GREAT. I listen to him every day on the way home. He tells it like it is, sometimes I don't agree, but he makes me laugh when stupid callers ask some stupid question. I wish the other sports figures would quit being so nice. I mean, some callers have no idea what they are talking about.

He recently received a rating of 10. something for ratings in the 3-6 time slot in ALL OF PITTSBURGH. The highest rating score ever. He hardly talks about wrestling, or soccer. His hockey knowledge is beyond anyone on the radio now. Honestly, if Mark Madden and Mike Lang would do the commentary for Pens games, it would be great. the old 2 niner, Bob Erey, and STiegy are terrible.

Give him a second chance like I did, He will grow on you. Is he a Fat, no it all? Yes, does he deserve a punch in the face a few times,? Yes. But what the hell, its great talk radio and he throws in some great music. I have never had a problem trying to call in. As long as you show signs of knowing what your talking about, he'll talk with you. IF you are an idiot who thought Leftwich should have been playing, or you think FLuery should be benched, or if you think Tomlin hasn't done anything but inherit Cower's team, he will let you know that you are a moron and hang up on you. And that is entertainment.

I would put money that all of you who posted negative things about him, have not heard his new show. Its fresh, its fun, and I laugh in the car sometimes.

I will step off my soap box.

or better yet,

I will hang up and listen to your answer....
