    EDIT-Nevermind

    The only thing I can say is "Be careful what you wish for"

    Marty's issues go back when he was spoiled watching the BRM win every year and it spiraled downhill when Dick Wagner took over. Since then, Marty has been gathering tenure.

    I listen when I can - figure its probably going to be worse when he leaves.

    Marty does have a great abundance of self love, I think he actually thinks that people tune in to hear him talk instead of the game.

    Re: A new Marty has to go thread

    How would you guys like to commentate losing game after losing game, and being part of an organization that hasn't been in the playoffs in a decade?

    I know I would be around where Marty is, in fact I'm surprised at how well he takes most things. He's a great commentator IMO.

    Also, anyone saying he's racist is the type of person that looks for racism in everything, when really they should be looking at themselves. He's harder on Kearns than anyone.

    Re: A new Marty has to go thread

    IMHO The score of the game matters very little. Fans tune in to hear play by play.

    Instead we are subject to the Marty Show.While his act may entertain all the yes men kissining his ass in the radio booth many long time listeners of Reds on radio have grown tired of it.

    At one time Marty was one of the best. He Aint Anymore.

    I don't by the excuse that he is tired of the losing seasons. What about us? The Fans who tune in to hear all the information we can get about the team we love... many of us to use Martys favorite line have been here before he got here and will be here when his butt is gone.
    We are starved for a winner too.

    Vin Scully, Ernie Harwell, Red Barber, Jack Buck and Mel Allen are one level.

    Marty and Harry Carry both had the talent to reach that level but fell far short due to thinking they were more important to the listeners than the ball cub it's self.

    I would wager to say that those who are overly critical of Marty in Reds country are a small minority.

    I'd agree because we aren't being overly critical. Can Marty not be criticized now that he's in the HOF? That'd be like saying that you couldn't say anything bad about Willie Mays when he was bumbling his way around the OF for the Mets before he retired.

    Re: A new Marty has to go thread

    I get ridiculed and bashed for saying my feelings on a subject over and over because certain people don't like my view. Yet they keep saying the same thing over and over. Are they being hypocritical? Or do they just hate when someone has a different view than them?

    And sometimes you guys have to realize that Marty announces for the whole Reds nation, not just the two hundred diehard baseball geeks like us.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    All you have to do is listen to a Reds away game on XM. (They have the home team announcers) Then you'll appreciate Marty.
    I'm not sure the names of the Astro's announcers, but the play by play guy got so loud and obnoxious, over the slightest plays, that I had to turn the radio down.

    No, he fails the 200 of us that are diehard baseball geeks. Trust me, it annoys me sometimes also. I admit that. Other than that he's the best game announcer I've ever heard.

    Edited to make more sense. I hope it works
