    Really sick of that shitty old thread.

    I didn't read much of this thread, but I was looking to see if people actually could tolerate this guy who calls himself the "Common Man." He is the single worst radio "personality" I have ever heard. He is brutal. He's not even good enough to hate. It's just not possible for me to listen to him after 2 minutes tops. Absolutely horrible.

    I used to play in a fantasy football league that PA was in. He was pretty bad, but in his defense, he probably didn't try.

    Yeah, it seems like he's not the smartest fella. Maybe he's funny, but I didn't stick around long enough to find out.

    I do like Common Man a lot, but I've taken a serious break from him in the last year.

    Common man and In The Zone are the only two programs I could imagine listening to on KFAN anymore now that Video Game Weekly is off the air.

    Sorry mags, the station thought you might take it better if you heard about it from a friend on a messageboard.

    Common can be really entertaining when he's not doing a bunch of faerie tale religious crap. He's definitely my fave main guy on the fan.

    Common will def go to the bible card on occasion. Sometimes it's kind of irreverent, but I think he's a cultural Christian.

    The gerbschmitt bit is getting pretty fucking tiresome. To the point of it being unlistenable.

    I don't know, Barreiro I think likes his jesus stuff too. I think he's similar to common in that once he had a kid it's time to talk about the lord or whatever.

    Common had a really intense show on Wednesday about drinking and underage drinking. Him and Rosen had a pretty long back n forth sprinkled in with some phone calls.

    However, I can't wait for this to come out!

    Fuck me. barreiro's in the midst of one of his regularly scheduled anti-bicycle rants. It's the epitome of his bullshit Third Way sensibilities (which is ironic because, nationally, the bicycle renaissance has been largely led by Technocrat Saint Bloomberg). These rants rise barely to the level of classic Garage Logic. barreiro at his most indulgent.

    It beats actually preparing material, I guess.

  2. How anyone could hate Common is truly baffling to me. People who hate Common are the people who think Hawkey and Cove "rawk".

  3. bummed I missed the Gerbie bit today.

  4. I can't stand to listen to KFAN anymore. But Meatsauce is a dj on that new 93.3

  5. Pretty sure that most people that hate Common haven't listened to him regularly and don't get that they are the very people his whole schtick relies on riling up.

    Also, I enjoy Barreiro's anti-bike rants. Not because I share some vitriol toward cyclists but because he's being more tongue in cheek about it than you guys are giving him credit for. It's the same deal with his weather terrorist bit. He's lampooning a group he thinks take themselves too seriously, and I do think there are a lot of cyclists who take themselves too seriously.

  7. Agreed on both COF's posts.

  8. @Christ O Fire Pretty sure that most people that hate Common haven't listened to him regularly and don't get that they are the very people his whole schtick relies on riling up.

    He's just so whiny and he never talks about anything interesting. I listen to him more regularly than I'd like to, but he's basically an uneducated troll. I do like it when he eggs on Rosen though. Barreiro actually talks Wolves once in awhile and seems like a decent guy.

  9. Whiny? Show generally is pretty positive and jokey.

  10. I'd say its a tad whiney at times, but he usually tries to mask it with some overarching bit. He seemed generally annoyed at how much flack he was getting about his All-Star game disinterest.

  11. @Wall_of_Beef I'd say its a tad whiney at times, but he usually tries to mask it with some overarching bit. He seemed generally annoyed at how much flack he was getting about his All-Star game disinterest.

    His sort of anti-baseball talk mixed in with ripping the Twins makes me happy.

  12. Why would a football fan take pleasure in someone's anti-baseball talk? What's the point? The NFL's popularity dwarfs baseball's.

  13. My friend Sally had a free extra ticket to see Common the other night at New Hope Cinema Grill. Told him "esoteric approach works for you". "Thanks, me boi".

  14. you're seeing a sophisticated offense in action

    NOOOOORV!

  15. Dude, love the Norv bit. PA is fucking insane.

  16. The morning show was getting a lot of mileage off of PA's bonkers Anthony Barr sack call..."WHAT A WONDERFUL SACK!"

  17. I might like the morning show even less than I like PA. Hawkey is unlistenable.

  18. @Turlough's ;Axe I might like the morning show even less than I like PA. Hawkey is unlistenable.

  19. The morning show is completely awful but I find myself compelled to listen to it

  20. He kept yelling "NORV!" after every joke he told at his show. Honestly, it was probably the best part.
