    At least we now know what Opie's top secret viral video is.

    For a guy who does radio every single day Op sure came across as a dullard.

    Yeah... Opie should definitely take the advice "Never leave the boat."

    He flounders when he steps outside of the narrow boundaries of his 'board op/second fiddle' role.

    Scottie Pippen is a Hall of Famer. Opie is more like the Jonny Bench of the show; makes the call to the pitcher but still just catches the ball.

    Johnny Bench is a hall of famer too. But your comparison is good.

    Perfect analogy indeed. To the casual baseball fan, they don't realize all the "behind the scenes" stuff that a good signal-caller does to prepare for a game. They go over the opposing team's lineup (and likely pinch hitters even) and try and find out their tendencies, strengths and weaknesses. They'll disguise the upcoming location of a pitch to throw off a batter. They'll try and calm down a struggling pitcher, help pay attention to the runners on base, direct the outfield and infield to different positions depending on the batter and lots of other things. And to casual radio fans, most don't realize the value of Opie's contribution to the program either.

    I'm not one of the Opie "haters" on this board, but I just think he's definitely not as strong and important to the whole show as someone like Anthony and sometimes even Jimmy. My point in using Scottie Pippen was that he's a quality player but was overshadowed by a bigger talent most of the time. And that if he ever left the comfort of the O&A show, he'd probably do ok, but would never reclaim that "championship" quality of play he has with Anthony. With the exception of that series with the Lakers when they went on to start their quest for a three-peat, Pippen never had any real success in the postseason without Jordan.

    A radio show needs a radio guy. Opie is that guy. It's a symbiotic relationship.

    Agreed, but to be fair, Pippen got a LOT closer to winning a title without Jordan than Jordan ever did without Pippen. The Bulls got to the Eastern Finals in '94, and the Trailblazers got to the Western finals in '99.
    Back to my point, Opie is very good at a job that's not that hard to be very good at. Anthony (for all of his insanity) is a comic genius; much harder to come by.

    Ron. He's been doing it for over 20 years. Diaz was the radio guy before that.

    I didn't say he was good at it. But he tries to keep the show on track.

    I disagree with the notion that the show "needs" Opie. I've heard enough Nopie to know that if Opie quit tomorrow to try to get his home movies of trick shots and cats skateboarding to GO VIRAL...MAAAAAN
    the show would be fine. Anthony has been at it for nearly 20 years, Jimmy for nearly 10. They are both "radio guys."

    I struggle to remember the last time Opie was saying really funny stuff on a talk radio comedy show. The Piscopo episode has got to be the only time in at least a year.

    Thursday. The finger pop line. It was the best line on a very funny show.

    That whole 20-year-old baby segment was fantastic, and it was just Op and Ant by themselves. Norton would have Uncle Pauled it right off the tracks.
