WFNY Podcast LogoScott Raab couldn’t be finished with the WFNY Podcast for 2013 after what happened over the weekend, so we decided to do one more in 2013. We touched on all of the obvious topics including…

  • Scott Raab talking about the Browns
  • Dumpster fire’s use in the mainstream
  • Joe Banner and the ego that goes with firing Chud
  • Jimmy Haslam’s role in the firing
  • The informational path from Mike Lombardi to the media
  • How should fans react to this today?
  • Was Rob Chudzinski the wrong guy for the job?
  • Rob Chudzinski’s own issues and how they impacted his own firing
  • Tony Grossi’s post about Chud refusing to cut Greg Little and Shawn Lauvao
  • Professional sports leagues are cartels, not pizza parlors
  • Scott: “We’re prisoners, not customers”
  • Is there anything Haslam and Banner could say for Scott?
  • Media should have an adversarial relationship with the front office
  • The Kyrie Irving situation is going to end the same way the LeBron one did
  • The Art Modell move continues to haunt coverage of the Browns
  • Andrew Bynum, the media and the Cavaliers’ future
  • Brian Windhorst continues to be one of the best Cavs beat reporters
  • The Kyrie Irving scenario and how it’s playing out

    Really liked the comment:

    “[Bynum] Going to the heat and making a two kneed monster with Odum”

    Nice to get a laugh out of the Cleveland situation.

    love the raab pods. co-equal favorite snips from this piece:

    1. blowing up lull’s self-proclaimed objectivity. ‘if you’re using that word in regard to your own point of view… then youre Spock with superior mindcraft.’ just a great line.
    2. called the chud firing a vanishing and applied the stalinist allegory which orwellian newspeak from berea deserves.

    3. the ‘concerning setback’ orwellian language in yesterday’s press release.

    he’s a delight, always enjoy his perspective. we DO need him in cleveland media. he would’ve been delightful at today’s presser.
