Default Bubba should have his own channel!

The "Who gives a Shit" Channel. Please, Howard, stop ramming it down our fucking thoarts. It's been nearly a full hour of this bullshit....first thing Howard says. Please, Bubba, find another place to work....please! This screams of delfection from the Ralph thing, which will not be mentioned at all. An hour....This is offensive! People that care have heard this already!

I would have no problem seeing Bubba and his crew leave. I don't find what they do entertaining at all. I know that he appeals to a certain kind of individual, but I would say that the majority of true Howard fans see Bubba as nothing more than a wanna-be clone, and a bad clone at that. I'm keeping my fingers crossesd that Bubba finds a home on regular radio very soon so Howard can make room for some real talent. I think that 101 has so much potential to be great! The first step towards being great is to give Bubba the boot.

This is from a guy that bought is wife a $100K wedding ring. NO BUBBA, YOU DON'T MAKE ENOUGH TO SUPPORT YOUR SPENDING PROBLEM.

Sitting at home jacking off, now THAT'S an income.

What an idiot.

Fat f'n Bubba.

No doubt. A few weeks back during a thread, I brought up the fact that both Bubba and Ferrall were hired cheap, as they have no leverage to negotiate upward. Some blind believers here stated that Bubba makes more here that at his old station - I guess that's not exactly the case, is it?

If Sirius paid a decent wage to more than Howard, more jocks would have jumped ship. Over the last year, not one full-time jock joined the "Revolution".

If Bubba is indeed working for "free", hopefully he will shake some money out of this company and stay, or work somewhere else and earn a salary.

He wasn't complaining about not making ENOUGH money, he doesn't make ANY money. Did you hear Howard this morning? After expenses Bubba makes no money besides that from Bubba Raw and the clothes/CDs. I'd say he has a pretty good reason to complain.

From what I read he was making about $250K/year but who knows anything these days. Everything is just made up as people type. If I find that article then I'll post it.

Either way they aren't paying ME so I don't give a crap about his situation.

Long live stern.

Unlike Howard who had leverage in his deal with Sirius Bubba says this was his only option so Sirius had him over a barrel.

Yeah, he's lucky to get ANYTHING. Everybody that works for corporate America is being held over a barrel. Not for millions of dollars either. Tens of dollars.

I like the guy but gimmie a break. At least it's good for STERN'S show which is good for me.

So on demand Bubba isn't making the bank I guess.

And it's fine if you like him but today was a terrible show (although I have to admit I haven't heard everything). Robin is about to start the news and the TV guys are saying that will be the show since nothing really went on today. I mean, if Howard worked Friday and kind of chilled out but Thursday more and more feels like the blow off day!

That's the problem with Sirius...Where is the talent other than Howard....and if it is all about Howard, why not more Howard offsrping shows since that is all the really interests us. Give Robin some kind of weekend show or something. What arbout friends of the show like Glibert....he could use the money!

Between Bubba and Howard, I get 8-10 hours/day or great radio. And do you really think Robin wants to do anything outside of the Stern show?? Everyone on the Stern show is 50% retired.

For Sirius to commit to 1/2 BILLION dollars to one person working part-time, I'd say it's all about Howard. How does that saying go about putting all of your eggs in one basket?

Perhaps Bubba picked the wrong time to hold out for cash, though. At this time last year, Sirius equipment was hard to find or order and the stock held steady. Fast forward to today's news article (link below) that has Sirius stock taking a big dive, with Howard's shares alone losing 11 million dollars in value, and Bubba again doesn't have the leverage he needs.
