Tracy Jones makes my ears bleed.
I am not sure why most people here do not like Tracy Jones. I think we have only had 2 (1999 & 2000) winning seasons since 1995. He adds something different to these losing times instead of talking about the negative all the time. Hopefully, the losing will end and "The Tracer" which I think will talk more baseball.
We get baseball talk on the pre and post game show on weekdays. it is nice to hear something more relaxing/funny on the weekends.
(MY OPINION )
* Attended the 1990 and 2010 Reds Division clinchers *

Great YOUTUBE videos.
I was playing golf in Columbus today and on the way home I had the pleasure of listening to the moron, one Tracy Jones...I cannot believe he is on the radio, he had his usual "Richard" guy on talking about his diamond seats and BMW...the point i am making is this guy was talking about everyone not in the diamond seats/luxury boxes as drunks and feared for his safety leaving the park...so he suggested that the luxury seats be let out first, like first class on a plane...and then have rumpke sponsor "taking out the trash" when the rest of the crowd leaves...I cannot believe on the Reds radio station we are subjected to this....this caller should have not been let through, but he has been for years and tracy wastes time on him...I am 24 years old and think Tracy Jones should be fired for this....please join me and boycott the Extra Inning Show with Tracy Jones! I want to listen to Reds talk radio, not some fake "richard" character!!
They let Richard through time and time again because there are people tht enjoy listening to him and the following callers that bash him afterwards. Im not saying I'm one of those people but I think thts why it continuously happens.
tracy jones will not be leaving WLW anytime soon...so you can threaten all your boycotts and such....the "tracer" fits exactly what the "big one" wants--someone who is able to rile the callers up and stir up controversy (contrived or otherwise)...and believe me, it is an act---Tracy learned his radio skills at the feet of the "masters"--Bill Cunningham and the departed Andy Furman.
Amen.YOU ARE CORRECT.
and why is andy departed? he called a bengal player racist and it bothered people, so what happened he got canned
it is when people accept the drivel they put out, that nothing happens!
For those of you who get all fired up and bent out of shape over Jones, that's exactly the responses he wants. He says a lot of things for the shock factor and so many people get sucked right in and go off on their hate tangents and he probably sits back and laughs.
My two favorite callers over the years have been Richard from Wheeling and Donna who had a list of "devil people". I enjoyed those two because unlike alot of the regular callers I had no doubt they were not acts and were legitimately crazy!!

The extra Innings Show is a joke when Tracy is the host.
If you listen real close Richard, Nick and Jim are the same guy using different names.
This guy is always one of the first callers Jones talks to. Then the rest of the show is about that phone call. It's bad radio.
Richard was banned today.
Nick was also told not to call back
They haven't talked baseball on sunday this season.
The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
