I'm sorry to see a guy lose his job, but he just wasn't making a contribution any longer.

He was far from the only problem, though - the TEAM's entire format is disjointed and tired. This station is in desperate need of a re-brand and a shot in the arm. You would have to think it is coming soon...
Agree with this pretty much, i listen to the team most days at work and i would request more known and respected sports figures be included in the program, and please for the love of all that is holy STOP with the same callers and e-mailers over and over and over, i would think most of us simply tune out! Maybe a good idea to grab the take from the rome show of not allowing callers/e-mailers to self brand themselves, it has gotten out of control and most of us probably don't need their daily joke/take (Sleepy Steve, Matrix, Raoul, Manstretch, Big Rick etc....)
