    Jim Rome Punked me today!

    Does anyone listen to Jim Rome's radio show?  Well I was listening to him today as I'm driving around town for work and he punked me.....big time!

    Jim Rome said he had some huge, crazy NFL news.  It was big!  He states he had to verify it a few places before he reportes it and he found out that yes, it is true.  Again he says this is huge news.  He said the Denver Broncos just made a huge trade and got a great player.  Rome said he has no idea why the other team made this trade.

    So by now I am thinking the Broncos got Welker on a trade with the Patriots.  My heart was sunk down to my ankles.  Rome then says the Denver Broncos traded away to the Patriots CB Cassius Vaughn for.......  (at this time I'm ready to crash my vehicle, I'm thinking Welker is gone)  then Rome says ..GRONK!!!  That's right Rob Gronkowski!  (I'm like W-T-F????)  Rome says why would the Patriots trade away GRONK??  He has been in some trouble lately, maybe that's why!!!!  (I'm dying inside, I'm about to pull over and puk-e)  Then Rome says, wait a minute!!  Wrong GRONK!  Broncos sign Chris Gronkowski!!  Then Rome goes on to rub it in how he got us listeners.

    Not going to lie, it was classic and Rome punked me big time!!

    Rome makes me want to roll naked in glass... he sucks.

    "Clones"... really, of you Rome, does that means clones are all 5'2," obnoxious turds with Napoleonic issues?

    No 2 CBs alive are worth Gronk, so that was a giveaway right there.

    Babe do you hate this team? Do you think that all of our CB's are dead? I hope your kids don't play sports cause your expectations would be unreachable.

    How did you get that from what he said? He said Gronk is great, e.g., he wouldn't trade Gronk for Revis and Asomugha (or something to that effect).

    Great post TFB12 .

     As far as trading any two CBs for Gronk ?

     I'd at least have to consider it .

     REVIS ( tho cant stand him personally )
    & PATRICK PETERSON would be tempting .

    ( not comepletely unfair to say we'd likely be visitin the White House this week if we made that trade to start the 2011 season )

    I still remember the very first time in my life, that I had ever seen Jim Rome...  TV, and this was way back when I'm pretty certain Rome was either on NESN or that love for all things New York channel (Cports Central Network or something?  The one offering our 2 favorite d##chebags, Mazz and Bob Ryan)...  Anyway, I'm flippin' through, and stop on this guy with a perfectly laser-trimmed goatee, and he's talking all Super-Tough guy as he's rambling...  I stop to make out what he's fronting all strong man, super-genius and all about- And I still remember, Jim Rome was throwing out MUST-DO advise to Sport's Franchises, by stating things like this: 

    "Islanders! You NEED a better D--So STOP Wasting EVERY-body's time- GET YOURSELVES a Shutdown Goalie, Riiiight NOW!  Celtics, You MUST get a Better Center to make the playoffs! It's Free Agency right this SECOND- SO GET a QUALITY Center!!!  Red Sox- You've had a void at Short since Garciaparra left- FIND someone decent enough to be HIS replacement, or you'll come up Short, Yet Agaaaain In The POSTSEASON!  Patriots, WHY do you give someone like TOM BRADY, such BAD Receivers...IF you REFUSE to come up with a Calvin Johnson type, Year in and year out- Oveeer and oveeer again, Those 3 Superbowls WILL BE- Your LAST 3 Championships!"

    I was like- ROFLOL! -This guy, is possibly THE loudest human sports commentator...offering the least amount of any real useful or detailed knowledge, that I have ever seen...  He'll be off the air in a week...

    Well...He got a million dollar pay raise along with a promotion to the big time syndicated networks instead.  

    God

    Help

    Lazz you hit that nail square on the head...

    It totally amazes me.. These guys are clearly nothing more than Propaganda (spewing) specialists working in conjunction to brain wash the multitudes with delusions.
    Rome is anonther in the cog that gets the people involved and therefore creates viewer or listner response generating advertising space and the all mighty dollar.

    I no longer watch television (at least 5 years) I cannot stand 5 mins of play and 8 mins of commercials and now its the same with radio.
    I have tuned my satellite for deep space, hoping to get some air wave signal from a distant planet or galaxy without commercial interuptions. Yell

    Not a fan of Rome.  He is the classic older guy (almost 50 I think) who tries to cultivate a young audience by using urban slang that he thinks is current.  It comes across as forced rather than natural.
    Now he has landed a CBS job which will force him to be more mainstream.  I don't think the relationship will last because I don't see him changing his on-air persona.
