Last night as I was listening to 94 on TuneIn on my Playstation, they were talking about one of my favorite subjects over the last few years, the Sixers.  I’ve been listening to 94 since I’ve been a kid, of course it was a rock station before its reincarnation to a sports station a few years back and I was listening to Sludge last night whom I listen to a few times a week on a regular basis.  I enjoy his show and generally like the topics and his banter and background in music.

I rarely call in to 94 and decided on a whim, since it was his birthday, and he hit a hot button topic of mine to pick up the phone and join in and throw in my 2 cents.  The last time I called in to the Josh Innes show to talk about Bradford of the Eagles I identified myself and got my butt reamed on the air and never got to talk sports so this time I decided just to be an innocent fan.

Let me preface this that I don’t look at 94 as competition to TSP, I look at us as an add on to the fray in the Philly sports media market, TSP started in 2009 and WIP switched to a sports format from a rock station in 2011 and is currently the leader in  sports radio in the Philly market.  If you look up Philly sports radio or 94 WIP radio on Google you will notice TalkSportsPhilly on page 1 or 2 in the search results I’m proud to say.

I began my rant by saying how embarrassing I thought the Sixers were to the city of Philadelphia and what the fans could do to light a fire under this team to get them to perform or to run them out of the city.  Brian handled the question well and came up with some good responses and basically said that the only thing the fan base could do is withhold support and not show up for the games.  But as for seeing a contending team anytime in the near future, I wouldn’t hold your breath.

As I mentioned that I ran a sports media site here in Philly and what all us media guys would have to do with ourselves with all the basement dwelling teams we are housing here in Philly as of late, I was quickly cut off and our conversation ended.  I probably should have had the courtesy of identifying myself since I was a first time caller to his show, but I will call back again and let him know the next time when I do.  Til then, all of us fans will just have to suck it up and hope for the best as the Phillies season comes upon us and pray the Flyers make the playoffs this year.
