    I'm one those people who doesn't get the Erock hate, but his staying home sounds like a bad excuse. Also, I could have easily drove around some of those downed trees he posted on Twitter.

    He's such a pathological liar dramatic douche.

    Just say the storm fucked up my neighborhood, and I'm staying home to help my neighbors clean up. That fucking simple, and everybody would've understood. But no... he has to make up some bullshit about a log jam and sparking high voltage wires on both sides of his street trapping him in... like in the cartoons.

    Erock deserves all of the humiliation and scorn they heap upon him. He really brings it on himself.

    I haven't heard the main show yet, but did hear Sam's show. I have no problem with the hosts bashing Erock, but Troy and Sal are in no position to join in. What kind of a place lets you bash your direct boss on the air and get away with it? No fucking respect in those two.

    Sal is so disrespectful and I don't think it is a "work" or bit for the radio or anything like that. He just is a 20 nothing, entitled horse's ass. I have zero idea why interns were brought back, given so much airtime and then ultimately hired. 90+ percent have been useless, shit-talking zeros.

    Because interns aren't hired on based on talent, work ethic, competency, etc... It's a game of musical chairs... they just hire whatever doofus intern happens to be sitting there when the paperwork comes down from management authorizing a new hire.

    The bashing has never been this bad, except maybe with Ben going after Jimmy.


    He really is a worthless piece of entitled garbage.

    They've earned that right. You don't see the difference?

    Oh, absolutely... but you didn't clarify that.



    Is what you said. And it's pretty ironical when you consider the fact that O&A have made a career of doing exactly that.

    The part you cut out clarified my statement. I'll even give Troy a pass. He's older and has paid his dues. A 22 year old right out of college needs to shut up and do what he's told for a few years before he has the right to bash anyone.

    No shit. Shut the fuck up Sal and go get me some fucking coffee.

    And who cares why Erock isn't there, shut the fuck up about it. Save that shit for the shit show.

    Love Erock, you take those days off and enjoy those coke floats in the rubble of your families homes. You earned it.

    Exactly, why beat up on a guy that doesnt hit back in any way. It makes sense to beat up the comics that come in because they will at least come back with something funny.

    1) those downed wires looked like cable or Phone wires.
    2) If they were power lines..the power company would have depowered them hours ago. If they were still powered..ther'd be dead pedestrians, squirrels and other animals all over the place.
    3) Typical entitled lazy fuck of his generation.."there's a tree (branch) down in the road, the township hasn't moved it yet so I am stuck".
    4) He lied about having to do storm stuff for his family so he could keep vacation days absolutely. If he really had to help his family, he would have been outta there in a heartbeat.

    No clue where either Erock or Kenny lives in NJ, but it just goes to show you the complete difference in work ethic between the two. Kenny hasn't missed a day, while Erock will miss 4 out of the 5 days. He's a boy in a fat piece of shit body. Last time I watched the Simpsons was in early 2000. He still follows that shit religiously.

    Take the days Sexbagel. Fuck em all. The company doesn't
    let them carry days over so why not use it instead of losing it?

    This shit doesn't happen all the time. Seems like a reasonable
    time to take off and take care of family 1st.

    He made it way more complicated than it had to be, and shouldve just been honest about why he was taking off from the start, BUT Sal is in no position to talk. The standards for what gets you hired have definitely fallen. They didnt always just pick "the nearest intern when management authorized a new hire". Sam was an animal. He got hired full-time as I was finishing up my internship. At that point he had already graduated college and was working for free. He showed the dedication. Travis and Danny were also interns at one point, and they obviously have a better work ethic than Sal.

    Give Pat Duffy the fuckin job if youre gonna hire an intern.

    Or hire an experienced producer with work ethic.
