Some people in the sports media business should not have jobs. This next example I’m going to show you will blow your mind. It’s unfathomable that someone in the media can produce content so mind-boggling that you can’t even make sense of what was said. Normally I just let things go but this one I can’t. It’s beyond egregious. Just try to follow along.

So which one is it? Are you for or against trading someone like Clint Frazier?
I’ve listened to this clip now probably 10 times. I still can’t understand what his point is. If you’re the social media person for this station, I need to know how this is a viral type of clip. That’s the sad part. What the hell does the rest of the show sound
