I can't believe a station that prides itself on journalistic integrity, allows the mouth to go on. He had Andy Garman on the radio with him today.



For a station with such storied tradition, I'm disappointed they have sunk so low as to think they need to put MT on once a week.



I still watch the news portion of KCCI, but as soon as the weather is over, I switch to WHO to watch the sports.



I'm guessing they'll never put a sock in it, but then again it doesn't matter because I've switched my sports viewing. Too bad because Andy and John are very nice guys.

I'm with ya, it's a joke. He said he's having Garman on again on Thursday. Who cares? Why don't you put someone on who isn't a channel 8 employee Marty? I'm starting to think that Garman and Tirrell are gay lovers.

It was funny how Andy G. said he first heard of Mark Phelps on DrakeNation.com.



After Marty did his schtick about Sandy and Maxwell not coming on his show, they acted like they had a huge scoop on C. Davis and R. Davis going to Providence. whooo, that's a scoop.



I'm in the watch 8 news and weather then switch elsewhere for sports mode.

Why watch Channel 8 news at all? It's the same junk, and WHO has consistently given more time to Drake on Sports. Channel 8 had nothing on Drake basketball this year until it got to the point where NOBODY had any interest in the Cyclones. All Drake supporteres should watch Channel 13. If not, Channel 5, which in spite of being in Ames gives Drake better coverage than 8.

WOI-TV is in West Des Moines....I don't know about their Drake coverage because I have never watched their newscast.

I'm a John Walters fan, so if the CBS affiliate is a joke, I suggest WOI (assuming he does the sportscast). He is from near Hinsdale and is a D guy...even did D radio if memory serves. Once of the nicest people you'll ever meet.

Since you asked, I don't like John Bachman. Just don't. And I like John McGlaughlin on weather.



Nothin' wrong with John Walters. He's a Drake alum, after all. Be watching more of him now, since Andy G. is off the list. Heidi was better.

Wherever they are, Lisa Carponelli is OK, and Chris Flanagan has an Irish name so he's OK, and John Walters is a good guy, and they do have the most accurate weather, ya know. Nothin' wrong with watching Channel 5 news. I've heard Keith Murphy and Andy Garman on with That Mouth guy ... has John Walters?



Andy Garman is dead to me.

I'm sorry, too. It's really annoying to have to be on top of the clicker all the time during a newscast.



Is "The Mouth" dumped yet? That's all it takes.

Well, you'll be riding the remote again tonight I guess, because Marty's Minute runs tonight at 10. But, Drake fans have nothing to worry about ... he's talking Prairie Meadows racing tonight.



But it does bring up a good point -- why the hate? What exactly has Marty said/done to inspire such venom on this (and other) boards? I'm simply curious ... so feel free to fire back and tell me. Because I listen to Marty and Miller frequently (but not all the time), and I don't understand why people LOVE to HATE him so much. So give me some reasons (but don't waste your time with "HE SUCKS") ... who knows, maybe we will make a viewer feedback edition of Marty's Minute in the future....



Thanks for watching ... or at least realizing that I'm still alive. ;)

I don't listen to him because he is a nudge. His whole shtick (sp) is BS. I know you want specifics but I don't have any .. the guy makes me nauseous listening to him. HE SUCKS!!!! If he had an intelligent show with anything close to constructive communication .. he might .. I mean MIGHT have a niche, right now he is nothing more than a poster boy for Summer's Eve.

This thread is probably a good place to start. His "I'm going to give Josh Young's phone number to Okie St" schtick assured him a special place at the bottom of my heart. BTW, I'm not someone who loves to hate the guy, I love to ignore him. I don't think I've listened to him since this show, and I don't plan to again anytime soon.

Dialogue is good. If you're really Andy Garman (no reason to doubt it) ... you've earned a lot of respect from me for just asking the question.



Marty's is a lot of shtick and very little substance to begin with, but that's obvious and too easy. Shtick sells in the media game, after all.



Specific to Drake ....... If you can believe anything he says, he was a good buddy of Kanaskie and has never gotten over it. Geez, the guy was a total loser at Drake, besides not "getting" how serious Drake is about the 2.0 thing. Of course he's gonna get dumped sooner or later.



Also, Marty's just too dumb about talking about Dr. Maxwell talking to him, ever going on a show live with him. Dr. Maxwell has a University to run. I don't think he's gonna spend much time worrying about whether some weird afternoon guy thinks he doesn't pay enough attention to athletics. Marty's normally just plain wrong about anything he says about Dr. Maxwell.



Marty also asked a really offensive question when Sandy was on after Keno left .... probably discussed in the thread linked here; something about the shock of Keno leaving feeling like WKU's last second shot. That was way over the line, even for a crappy radio guy. Way way too close to home for any Drake fan at that point in time.



That's just recent stuff. Bottom line, Marty does not "get" the Drake approach. A top 15 team this year, with a bunch of great students, was just spectacular, and a great credit to Drake as an institution. That was what made this Drake season so exceedingly fun to watch unfold. You won't see that combination very often, ever, in the money-hungry NCAA world. Marty didn't "get" it.



Guess I'm getting repetitive now. Thanks for listening. You're a good man to ask. Dump The Mouth, though, or I'm not ever watching 8 sports again.

If you're really Andy Garman (no reason to doubt it)




Just as an FYI, I have been able to verify that this really is Andy Garman. No way I'm going to let somebody post using the name of a public figure without being able to verify their identity.



As for Marty....I still listen to him (sorry to the Drake fans who consider this sacrilege). But, I don't necessarily like him. That's how bad radio in Des Moines is, when I find myself listening to somebody I don't really like. But, I've got to admit, he is entertaining at times. I enjoy sports news, and KXNO is the place to get it....you just have to be able to sift through the opinions on various things to get the facts.



Anyway, Marty has been extremely critical of both Sandy Hatfield Clubb and David Maxwell regarding the hiring of Coach Phelps. I believe this criticism is based on some "inside information" that has been given to him, that might or might not be true. It's one thing to be critical, but I think he went overboard in his criticism of Maxwell and Clubb without being able to verify that the information he had was correct. That, more than anything, is what has annoyed the Drake fans that I've talked to.



I know Marty stated several times during the season that the Davises were given more leeway with regards to getting kids into school than their predecessor was. He repeatedly made comments such as "look at how many juco kids Dr Tom and Keno brought in. (His predecessor) never would have been allowed to do that." Maybe not an exact quote, but something very, very similar. The fact is, Kurt Kanaskie brought in many more junior college recruits than the Davises did. This is not a shot at Kanaskie, but Marty was trying to diminish the Davis's accomplishments by making blatantly misleading statements like that.



All season long, as far back as the Iowa game, Marty talked about how Drake was getting to get exposed. Virtually every game, he would predict Drake to lose. He talked about how UNI's front-line would just destroy them. He even predicted Drake to lose their first round game in St Louis. Not the best way to endear yourself to the Drake fans.



I know his job is to create controversy. Controversy sells. He probably doesn't even believe half the stuff he's saying. I've got no problem with opinions, even if they're totally off the wall. It's when he starts distorting the facts, or stating his opinions as if they were facts, that I get annoyed.

Well said.

Much as anything, just want to get at the truth. Not gonna get it with Marty. 'bout 'nough said.



All that said, thanks to Andy Garman for asking for the truth about why we feel the way we do. That's what it should be all about. And why Andy should dump The Mouth.

I promised myself I wasn't going to do this but It has to be said. Marty the Turd has been Officially told to Nock off the stupid BS about Drake. Whether or not he is capable of lisetening is in doubt and remains to be seen. He has PO'd the sponsors, the fans, and his own radio station. Big surprise considering he has been fired from every job he ever had.



HEY MARTY STFU AND GET WITH THE PROGRAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OR DON'T AND GET YOURSELF CANNED!!!! THAT WOULD BE MY PREFERENCE.



SUPPORT DRAKE YOU AO I DARE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OR AT LEAST BE EVEN HANDED, ALTHOUGH THAT IS SOMETHING THAT YOUR TINY LITTLE EAST COAST BRAIN CAN'T COMPREHEND YOU FARGIN PRACK!!!!!!!!!!



HEY WHY DON'T YOU GO TO RHODE ISLAND!!
