I don't mind Brock and Salk, but I don't really buy Salk being pro Hawks either. He claims to be a Miami fan but I think he is more NE then he lets on.
It seems to me that Seattle sports radio should actually hire people who are fans of SEATTLE sports. Kinda like Softie but less annoying. Even Elise is a Broncos fan for gods sake.
Tony Ventrela has a Yankees hat in his office btw.
Whatever I still listen and sometimes go on air. I think they could do better.
Um dude, you're confusing Mike Salk of 710 with Mitch Levy of 950.
Salk is from Boston and a Pats fan. He doesn't hide it at all. He talks about growing up in Boston and being a Pats fan all the time. He's taken a liking to the Hawks during his 3 years here.
Mitch is the Miami fan. He's from there. He doesn't hide being a Dolphins fan either. But he's lived here for over 20 years now and the Hawks are solidly his 2nd team, and sometimes rival the Dolphins.
I'm not sure what you expect from these radio guys. The reason they're from all over the country (and is the case in most cities) is because they are the best at their jobs. Sports radio would suck if it was only the top people to come from your own city.
I really appreciate an outsider perspective on our teams. Salks calls the Mariners on their BS, because he's seen first hand just how a team should be run with the Red Sox. It's good to have a mix of hometown and outside views. Could you imagine if it was nothing for Softy types? Good god, kill me now.
As for Groz, his being a Cowboy fan has little to do with his attitude towards the Hawks. He's covered sports in this city for decades. He plays the role of "realist". Which when it comes to Seattle sports generally leans towards pessimism. And 99% of the time ends up being the right angle, sadly.
