    Re: A new Marty has to go thread

    I just recieved this article from my brothers friends cousins nephew with half a face about Brad Pitt being probed by an alien with no feet.... later today that same alien with no feet was seen making out with Angelina Jolie just outside Great American Ballpark.

    Marty lost me yesterday on his inane Email about Jeff Gordon.... someone had the nerve to tell Marty he was wrong...well you all know the rest of the story as another local announcer might say.
    WOY, I think I caught the tail end of that one. Was that when he mentioned Jeff Gordon singing "Take Me Out.." in Chicago and telling the crowd that he loved "Wrigley Stadium?"

    If so, I don't why Marty chose to read that email anyway. That was old news and IMO Marty stunk up the joint when he was asked to sing at Wrigley (three times as he reminded the audience yesterday )

    Marty is a professional announcer and he should act like a professional. The Tigers sucked for much of Ernie Harwell's tenure as well, but he never morphed into the sad shadow of his former self that Marty has become.

    I've been about a month without him, and haven't missed him at all.
    I don't care if he's bored or upset with this team. He needs to act professional and call the ballgame. How hard is that? Lots of us have to put up with boring jobs for longer than 3-4 hours/day. Plus Marty only works about 1/2 of the year, he can suck it up and pretend to be interested in the game, and actually prepare for a game.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I haven't listened most of the year. I turned off Reds radio after being a listener for over 30 years. Now I follow the games over the internet.

    Marty has become a caricature of himself.

    Maybe I just havent been around long enough most of seem to have been listning to Marty for a very long time and I'm just not that old. Marty may get off course at times but I still think he is real good at calling play by play. I just think once Marty leaves he will be missed.

    I rarely listen to Reds Radio and part of it is all the side jokes in the booth, the stories, the golf... I don't miss him now, but I do miss the Marty I grew up with.

    I travel a lot and listen to many radio broadcasters... Trust me there are plenty out there that are much WORSE than Marty, but there's also many pro's who are better, even for bad teams.

    I just wish he'd return to the professionalism that earned him that Hall of Fame induction.
    In those things which we commit to practice we can master, and with mastery we have the freedom to use these skills whenever we desire, without this practice we are slaves to our inability.

    I really seriously enjoyed listening to the games in Milwaukee that Steve and Joe did. The broadcasts were about baseball. Seems kinda obvious.
