JOHN HARRIS IS FREE



John Harris

At the close of Marc Vandermeer's Tuesday Show, Texans All Access, he announced they had an addition to the team.  He said they would announce is soon.  According to sources, its HMW's belief John Harris will be joining Marc Vandermeer and staff on Texans Radio.  If we learn any new information, we will post it.

John Harris is the former host of 1560's War Room. His knick name is "The Professor" because  he's one of if not the smartest football minds in Houston.  John is also a former teammate of Houston Texan's Head Coach Bill O'Brien.


IN THE TRENCHES DEBATE THE CALLERS BY LM



IN THE TRENCHES DEBATE CALLERS

Earlier this week, I wrote about Sports Radio 610 Morning Show In The Loop for talking smack about a guest after the interview.  I do not like when host, talk smack about  a guest or a caller when they are not present to defend themselves. That's my pet peeve.  The majority of the shows in Houston, do it.

It comes off as weak.

There is one Local Sports Show who don't mind dialoguing with callers (positive or negative).  Sports Talk 790 In The Trenches hosted by ND Kalu and Greg Koch will mix it up with callers.  Its odd because sometimes I think they go too long with "serial" callers.  Serial callers are the callers we all know that call every show in Houston with the same take until someone agrees with them.  I was a serial caller.  However when it comes to the casual caller, ITT show them the same love.

Both guys will debate or discuss but truth be told, Greg Koch is mouth.  I guess Greg's background as an attorney pretty much makes him a natural debater.

BLACK QB GUY

Wednesday during the second hour, "BLACK QB GUY" called to debate ITT on Michael Vick vs Johnny Manziel.  BLACK QB GUY is an HMW inside joke, basically, callers who try not to make QB a racial issue but their take is completely racial.  BLACK QB GUY is not so high on Lance Zierlein as a "football mind".

If  you want pure comedy listen to this debate, especially 790 Producer Michael Connor losing it.

BLACK QB GUY DEBATE

WRAP IT UP

I do not believe hosts should go long with every caller but all too frequently in this market, all we hear "we up against it, we will address it on the other side".  It's my belief, hosts who do not dialogue with callers are (1) afraid because of their sports limitations or (2) arrogant and think callers are beneath them and they want to hear themselves talk

In The Trenches don't do the above, they take callers and debate them and they just so happen to be the top show in the market.

BREAKING TEXANS DRAFT NEWS FROM CHUCKIE CHEESE
Written by: Craig Shelton
Date posted: 4/22/2014

A trusted source close to another trusted source told the three-year-old niece of another trusted HMW source that he was at a birthday party for his nephew this past Saturday at a local Chuckie Cheese in an undisclosed location. While eating pizza, our source says that the guitar playing-singing giant white bunny rabbit hopped over to his table and leaked to our more than credible and reliable trusted source that the Texans are drafting Texas A&M Aggies OT, Jake Matthews, as the first pick overall.
 

EVERY ONE PLEASE SHUT UP UNTIL MAY 8TH!

IN THE LOOP RIPS DEFENSELESS GREG COSELL BY LM


GREG COSELL VS NICK WRIGHT (RACIAL)
Written By: LM
4.22.2014

Sr Producer of NFL Films Greg Cosell joined In The Loop to discuss the draft.  As the interview was wrapping up, Nick Wright asked Greg about an article he wrote comparing Cam Newton to Virginia Tech's Logan Thomas.

Poor Greg because he don't know Nick was obviously going for the race angle.  The race angle being "you are only comparing them because they are black".  Nevertheless, I was pretty surprised Greg didn't take the bait and debated on football.  Although I shouldn't have been surprised being that Greg has been looking at football almost as long as I've been alive.  Was pretty shocked Nick would come at Greg like that. If I was Greg, I would be insulted because you are challenging my years of experience with a juvenile take.

TALKING SMACK AFTER GREG LEAVES

One of things I hate about our Local Media, often with guest and callers, they talk smack or crush people after they are not there to defend themselves.  When you had the chance to do it on the line, you didn't.  Basically, John Lopez and Nick crushed some of Greg's take the following segment when he was not there to defend himself.  Is it cool for hosts to crush guests after they leave?




That said, John Lopez is the gift that keeps on giving.  Greg made the comment earlier, Cam Newton broke all of the NFL rookie records.  The following said, John said Oh and Johnny Manziel broke all of the records, I guess in a way to say, Greg was wrong. LMAO, come on man. GREG was talking about NFL Records not college.

SR 610 HOST ALEX DEL BARRIO ROBS A FOOTBALL TWEET BY LM



SR 610 HOST ALEX DEL BARRIO ROBS A FOOTBALL TWEET
Written By: LM

No honor amongst thieves.

I was listening to Alex Del Barrio and Bret Dolan on Easter Sunday.  

In the second hour of the show, Alex made a comment in regards to the Texans and the Draft, I took exception to.

Its Alex's belief

  • Bob McNair wants Johnny Manziel
  • Rick Smith wants J. Clowney
  • Bill O'Brien wants Blake Bortles
Quickly, I shot a couple of tweets at Alex asking him, "what has the Texas three said publicly that would make you say this".  In other words, I haven't seen, heard or read anything that would lead me to this conclusion.

Low and behold, Patrick Starr from State of The Texans told me, The take was mad on Twitter and it appears Alex replaced Bridgewater with Bortles


The original take was a gentlemen by the name of Scott Bischoff.  I don't know who this guy is but im guessing he's an NFL Guy.  Nevertheless, this is Scott's original Tweet from 4.11.2014


 and here is Alex Del Barrio's Sunday [AUDIO] Take.

Alex Del Barrio Take

Sounds familiar huh?

Funny thing, I actually seen Scott's tweet and didn't put two and two together when Alex came on air and verbalized it.  Basically, we have a host who saw something on twitter, replaced a name and called it his take, WTF is that.  Is this where it has come in Houston?

What happened to originality?  I really wanted to know what have Rick, Bob or Bill said publicly that would lead Alex to give this take.  For What Its Worth, I can't debate Scott's tweet because he sourced it as inside information?  The only way a personality could make this take is, if they had inside information.

The real truth, Alex robbed Scott's tweet and tried to replace a player's name.  Don't argue with HMW on a stolen take.

DONE.
