Default Why does Mark Madden hate the Steelers?

I am not from Pittsburgh but I listen to his show on the espnradio.com. He seems to really hate the Steelers. Why? Isnt he from the area? He sounds like a guy who has been hurt by a girl!

he is an idiot and should be ignored.

he gets ratings by stirring up controversy, not by an in depth discussion of the facts.

I've listened to him multiple times and I have never come away with the opinion that he hates the Steelers. I think he takes an objective look at them and points out their weaknesses and strengths.

I don't have a problem with Madden at all.

Him and Rush Limbaugh are the worst radio guys in the world. Both are nothing but fat pieces of _hit. Madden does like the Pens though.

Madden actually posts on another Steeler football board under a nomme de guerre. He's very articulate. He only posts when the Steelers lose or look bad when winning. It sends even the most measured and even-tempered posters into grand mal seizures.

Don't ever make the mistake that he's stupid. His position is coldly calculated to maximize fan reaction. He wants to be the guy everyone "loves to hate". His show is all about ratings. Both seem to be working.

Default Re: Why does Mark Madden hate the Steelers?

He is a really smart guy and gets what he wants... But he definitely hates on the Steelers just to do it and get ratings...

A few things about him:

He coaches youth hockey and led a team to a world championship a few years ago I think...

Was on WWE (WWF at the time) as a commentator and actually got in the ring once or twice...

Ben Roethlisberger was his neighbor when Ben originally moved into town... Roethlisberger has since moved but Madden still brings it up a lot and Ben seems to be the one Steeler Mark Madden roots for...

You can find his home phone number on quite a few online phonebooks lol... I think he got it taken out of the print versions but if you want a laugh go ahead and look it up... He would be one hell of a fun guy to prank call...

He has gotten into quite a few verbal arguments with different personalities and sports writers around here like Bob Smizik, Jon Burton and Stan savron (He currentley does a radio post-game show for the Steelers with Savron, whos name I think I am spelling horribley wrong.)...

Madden was fired from a channel 4 sports show last year for calling DeShea Townsend or Ward a name I think... He blames it on the Rooneys and actually believes Dan Rooney called channel 4 and got him fired... That is where a lot of his hate for the team comes recently...

Anyone who has listened to the guy a little bit already knows that much but I figured I would give you some stuff on him just incase you were interested...

Mark Madden hates everything that he can't eat. He's a miserable, fat porkchop who has the class of a doorknob. I've always believed he hates the Steelers and nothing I've read here or anywhere else will convince me otherwise. No matter how good the team has played in any given season, he finds something to B & M about.

I listen to his show only when I need a good laugh.
