One of the great things about my new smartphone is the ability to listen to Dallas Sports Radio for updates on the Cowboys and for insights from Michael Irvin and Nate Newton. I usually jump between ESPN, The Ticket and the FAN. But one thing really irritates me. On every show (including Irvin), they seem to feel obliged to dedicate equal time to every other sport - especially the Mavericks and Rangers. I notice they do the same thing in North Carolina with Hockey or women's basketball during ACC basketball season. The other day, Nate started to share something really insightful when the hosts cut him of and said "Sorry big fella, next segment is the Rangers".
I want to say "WHO CARES ABOUT THE RANGERS???" But I'll make my criticism much more narrow. There are 3 sports radio stations. Don't you think people who are really interested in baseball would tune into one of the other stations during the MICHAEL F'n IRVIN SHOW? Additionally, when an average football game pulls in a bigger rating than the World Series or NBA Championship, you would think they would skew coverage toward the NFL instead of making sure they cover each sport equally. But no such luck. Maybe it's my own bias. Maybe baseball fans feel like they are neglected during their regular season for TC coverage. But c'mon... I'd like to hear the thoughts of other fans - especially in the Dallas Area.
