    Don’t mind preachy, or opinions, or his perception of reality, and I’m sure he’s a good guy. but I had to stop listening to Fenton just like I did a few years back when he was doing morning shows in (what I think was) audition/hopes of being the 6am guy on WDAE before they settled on Stroud/Jones (no comment there). It seems like it takes a year for Fenton to complete one sentence, and he is all over the road. And then he says goofy things like if you think x, you are either y or z. Like he has any idea–dude hasn’t lived long enough. Literally got through about 8 minutes, and couldn’t take it. Oh well….

  2. TexasBuc Says:

    Got through maybe ten minutes then tapped out. Rambling about nothing. Tuned in for Bucs talk but got politics. Boring…..

  3. BrianBucs Says:

    Nick Foles is now the NFL’s leading merchandise seller. Just sayin’………

    I got through 5 minutes and had to shut it off. Thinking the media doest distort the news makes me “crazy”. I listen to his podcast cause he is a die hard bucs fan like me, but this is the second time I’ve shut it off due to his “virtuous” positions on things. There are too many good bucs podcasts to deal with it.

  5. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Bobby, I like your podcast, but you are way off base about the media. To say they report and that’s it is wrong. They use non-factual data to incite the opinions of the people. That data is often mixed with small elements of truth to give them merit.

    In this case, Auman knows that Jameis has no control over what another person wears. He presented the information knowing full well that it would incite a reaction.

    And that’s exactly what he hoped for.

    He was not objectively providing information. If he was, he would have also said that Jameis cannot control what his trainer wears.

    Your take on reporters is totally off base.

    I enjoy this podcast for the very reason that Bobby does go into lots of topics. There aremultiple shows on this website where you can get in depth talk about the Bucs third string DT in the rotation or whatever, so I like having the variety. Plus it’s mid July and there isn’t anything going on with the team right now.

    I personally believe there really are a lot of people today who actually think of the media as an adversary. However you feel about “getting political”, you can’t deny that attitude isn’t exactly discouraged by the person at the very top right now. To me, that’s a scary thing, to me.

    Good show.

    @Centercut…Trump is a loudmouth…you can say his name, that’s okay. I alo think he’s a jerk. But he is simply calling the media out forcibly…something a lot of previous presidents didn’t do. Both political sides cringe because he holds all accountable, especially polticians and media hacks who do have an agenda. Those in the “swamp” have loved getting by and chewing the fat and not really doing much…he’s changed that. They hate it. Good for him. BTW…getting political is what politicians are supposed to do. He SHOULD be political. NOT the media. And dang sure not NFL players on gameday. ESPN is even worse. I remembe the first national broadcast for preseason last year with the Bucs featured…and they spent 40 minutes on the kneeldown BS…not the news…but the political piece. Ugggghhhh. Not with football!
