    Not extreemly surprised. He seems to have been trying to push the envelope of late. Dont know if it was to show his moxy, or just that he could not think before talking...

    I'll miss BR, he's a great guy through and through, one of the first guests we had on the podcast. He'll probably end up with Fox Sports SD or something

    Kaplan was just annoying - I didn't bother listening to the show much

    I actually liked their show opposed to anything else at that time. Dan Patrick is obviously good, but I like local sports, especially (actually only) during NFL season. Scott was obnoxious at times, but they are better than anyone else on that station. Hacksaw is desperate for callers, and Darren is a snore festival, the coach while nice, put me to sleep this morning.

    I'd like to see Josh and Charrod leave 1360 for 1090 AM show. :D

    Kaplan clearly has issues with women not to mention sounding like a womanizer. After the 2001 incident in which a woman sued him and Clearchannel, it's also XX1090 management's fault for still thinking it was OK to hire him.

    The other issue is first XX1090 management said the latest incident had been handled internally. So they didn't fire him because they knew he was wrong. They fired him because of mounting pressure and media coverage.

    Made my day! Now I can hear local sports in the morning without having to put up with that immature jerk. I could picture AJ lighting up a big 'ol stogie and grinning ear to ear at the news.

    I rarely listened to the 'scott&br show'. But yer man Kaplan gave me a pain. BR didn't seem to make any impact for me, laughing at Kaplan's jokes etc.

    I'm surprised to hear the negatives about the Darren Smith show. I listen to it lots. I like that he gets good guests on, seems he is the only one who gets AJ for example.

    I actually like Darren but he's definitely a baseball guy who has decent knowledge of football. Padre time rolls around he's definitely the guy to listen to. His interviews are also great. I actually like both XX1090 & 1360's afternoon/evening shows (World of Sports & the Drive are very entertaining, Smith is good and I like the Coach)

    I also like Darren, he gives a leveled perspective, doesn't go nuts on small issues

    Dave and Jeff are in the AM spot now on 1090 and they're talking to AJ live right now :D

    F-You's of the day return! Very, VERY happy to have local sports talk radio I can stand to listen to in the AM again.

    I'm a fan of TWoS (Ello/Higgins), Ellos rubs people the wrong way sometimes but he's a good dude (I might be slightly bias b/c he always reads my emails on air). Josh and Charod are fun during the drive, depending on who they have on or what they're discussing I'll switch back and forth between them and DSmith in the afternoons.

    Darren Smith does good interviews, but his voice is nasaly, and he needs a partner, or something, because on any issue he belabors the point ad naseum.

    I'd like to see Marty get more involved.. maybe not in phone interviews with players, coaches and media types as that should be 1 to 1 for me. But Marty and Darren need to chat with each other more.

    I agree. Darren is the only quality show on that entire station. Scott and BR were good for the 1st few years, but they got old, especially the last few years when they couldn't just talk about how great the Chargers were. Scott turned into a hater, and BR did nothing but make excuses. Neither of them approached it with a rational approach
