Tim doesn't have much to do with the negotiations. And I totally think it's a rumor. Actually I think it's the BRN hoping that this press can get SIRIUS to get the deal done faster than on their own timeclock.Remember, as of right now it's only a rumor. Tim Sabean is a type-A personality, I'm sure he'll work things out.
That part of the equation would have to include Howard to back pedal on his stance concerning not giving away free content from a pay service...and I don't think Howard would ever pull a 180 degree turn on a subject so close to him, do you?Losing Bubba will definitely suck - I'm hoping Sirius can get it together and figure this thing out. As crappy as it would be, I'd settle for simulcast testicle radio shows over losing him altogether.
Well, Howard is always about Howard - he'll say what he wants, when he wants, with whatever spin he wants. That being said, as they say on Bubba, you cut your own deal, kid. It appears that Howard is unable or unwilling to budge Sirius on the contract front, so who knows what could happen.That part of the equation would have to include Howard to back pedal on his stance concerning not giving away free content from a pay service...and I don't think Howard would ever pull a 180 degree turn on a subject so close to him, do you?
Yeah, but the "edited crap" pays the bills. Sirius can't pay Bubba what he's worth, so he's going to go where they will. It's not a loss for him, it's another loss for his Sirius fans. I believe Sirius should get rid of and O and A in order to shuffle some of that money Bubba's way. I wonder if Bubba's salary comes out of the 100 mil per year Howard allocates for programming, since the show is on Howard 101. If so, that kind of explains it - No more Bubba means more marbles for Howard. Maybe now he can add that third lane he's been wanting to getEven though I dont listen to him, I feel that this will be a big loss for him because he and Howard were the guys targeted by the Federal Censorship Communication and he is going back to the edited crap on FM.
