    Radio team “Jordan and Earl” off air for 2 days
    By Jay Posner (Contact) Union-Tribune Staff Writer
    10:17 a.m. March 12, 2009

    In the wake of harsh, often-profane criticism of LaDainian Tomlinson on Wednesday, XX Sports Radio's controversial afternoon team of “Jordan and Earl” will not be on the air as scheduled today and Friday.

    It isn't known whether the move is for just the next two days or longer, or even if it's technically a suspension. Station boss John Lynch, in response to an e-mail message asking for his comment on the situation, simply replied “I am traveling.”

    On Wednesday's show, the hosts, Jordan Smith and Irwin Earl Milan, were critical of the Chargers' decision to pay Tomlinson nearly $7 million for the 2009 season. Smith went on a five-minute rant early in the show that included a reference to the Thanksgiving turkey giveaway Tomlinson hosts every year for needy families in San Diego County:

    “I'm listening to Mama LT this morning with Scott (Kaplan) and BR (Billy Ray Smith), and God bless them, too, bringing up the turkeys again – do me a favor, stick the turkeys up your (bleep). I don't care about the turkeys. I don't care about your charity.”

    Smith also said he wished Chargers bosses Dean Spanos and A.J. Smith “had the testicles like” Padres bosses John Moores and Sandy Alderson “to get rid of the aging superstar,” a reference to the baseball club's decision not to bring back Trevor Hoffman this season.

    This is exactly why I can't stomach 1090. Douchebags, I hope they get fired, and if there's no family involved I hope they stay unemployed.

    Compare Spanos and the Bolts to the Padres? Yeah, obviously it's worked out so well for them. :tdown:

    I gave those guys a chance (two weeks like Romey says) but did not like their loud style, the clincher for me (to never listen to them again) was when one of them said that Rivers doesn't even belong in the same conversation as Rothlisberger or E. Manning.

    I like Darren Smith and coach Kentera, two likeable level-headed guys that give you facts, insight and a good opinion

    BTW, lost a lot of respect for Scott and BR for interviewing LT's mom, you gotta be kidding me, they went with the mom? I know she's media sabby but still :tdown:, plus I don't like how the interview QBs of other teams more than the Chargers QB :icon_shrug:

    this is the chance for Loren and Ray to step in and dominate the sports talk show drive time from 5-7 pm.

    Step up and get your foot in the door guys.

    at least they have actual sports knowledge and can hold a conversation with other people.

    that's what bugged me more than anything with the bleacher bums - i listen to plenty of sports talk with "east coast bias", guys who say things i totally don't agree with - being critical of the team is one thing - but at least know what the hell you're talking about.

    scott kaplan is a SD homer but the man is also a raging moron - i'd rather listen to the analysts on espn or nfl network underestimate my bolts than listen to a homer run his mouth like a fool - and i definitely don't want to listen to ill informed anti-charger, anti-charger fan screamfests on my hour commute home everyday. :icon_shrug:

    the show was supposedly just fans talking sports - ok, so talk sports - don't just yell your opinions at me and bash anyone who doesn't agree with you.

    I heard that rant live to and I can tell you that was one of the most sickening and unprofessional things I've ever heard on live radio. To have his dumbarse go off on L.T. was just ridiculous and shameful. I've never been so mad after hearing that stupid rant I had to turn it off. Those 2 clowns should be terminated in my opinion. I actually wouldn't mind hearing "Philly Billy" after those stupid comments seriously. :no:

    Thank you for pointing out our error. I have been waiting for guidance on the subject from a guy such as you with more refined taste than the great unwashed you see here. We really are not worthy.

    Trust me B4L, these 2 clowns, esp. that Jordan fool sound worst than Mountain Dew man, even worse. This guy goes off saying "LT hasn't done NOTHING, nothing for San Diego! I don't care what he's done for the community, blah, blah, blah!". I know they are trying to stir the pot and are rookies, but his rant was unprofessional and worst than anything I've seen posted on here trust me. You guys would have been pissed if you heard it live. They made Scott and BR look like Micheals and Madden!

    These two idiots are terrible. I stopped listening to 1090 after they were given a show.

    Apparently morale at the station has plummeted since they were hired, and I think it speaks volumes about the competency of the management over there that two idiots with no broadcasting experience were given a 4-hour prime time show.

    They are bad. They use crappy english, read from the computer (which everyone does, but you can tell with them)... Thier sport knowledge is good, but nowhere near it needs to be to run a sports talk show...

    They try to roll east coast and suck at it...

    I like the concept. I just think they picked the wrong couple of "fans" to pull it off.

    It just didn't work.
