    I'm skipping ahead to comment on this.

    While Opie is a narcissist, just like jimmy and Anthony, I have a feeling that he might do just that, I would speculate that opie has a few bucks squirreled away, (the cheep fuck) take his money, I'm hoping that he was smart enough to have an iron clad severance in his contract, sell his condo in the city, move to his beach house, fish for the rest of the summer, then, in the winter, when he's going stir crazy, just start a YouTube channel or do guest bits on compound media. He's fliftyish he's got a hot wife two young kids, why waste the rest of his life fighting with idiots.

    To quote Ron Bennington, you can choose your family, but your friends chose you and it's hard to get rid of them.

    I agree, except that the XM gig as O&A&J was a steady gig, that I'm sure paid well, was "stable" and as long as the contract was in place they could just "phone it in" the "shock jock" era ended with Sex for Sam, that made them basically un touchable (even though they did have the free FM gig, to fill the void left by Howard, they were always damaged goods)
    The way Anthony got canned and the fight afterwards was very telling about how bad things were.
    It's a shame really that they fizzled out the way they did, but, I think it was inevitable

    Because delusions of talent, and an overinflated ego.

    True. If I had to rate his strengths it would go as follows...
    1. Ambition and ego.
    2. Surrounding himself with talented people.
    3. His understanding of the radio business.
