    After today's show, I changed my sub from Sirius everything to just music. I don't give a shit about Bubba - never heard of him before Sirius, never listened to him on Sirius. I also don't mind Howard telling his fans to fuck off, but I'm not going to pay $12.95 a month to hear him do it. So I took Howard's advice. I've heard that the subs on Stilettos are notorious for never being updated. Lets see how long it takes them to get to mine.

    I'm not going to claim that I'll never listen to the show; on the contrary, I plan on listening as long as my receiver gets the channel. If/when they do update my sub, and depending on how much I find myself missing it, I very well might subscribe again. But between Howard's rant today, the ten minute "top 5 HTV" fake listener call (how stupid does he think we are?), and another Beth-influenced guest, I've had enough of paying for it for a while.

    I'm also not so dillusional as to think my canceling - or anyone else's - will have any impact on the show, Sirius, or Howard what-so-ever. The guy has hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars. But I don't like being taken advantage of, and I won't help someone do it.

    They asked why I was canceling (after offering 2 free months). I told them it was because of the vacations and Fridays.

    It's ironic. Granted I haven't listened to Howard in over a year, but he showed emotion today. Funny it was at Sirius subscribers.

    It's amazing. When Stern was signed Sirius made sure to let people know that the price wasn't going to go up or that Stern fans would have to pay extra (unlike O&A at the time).

    If people don't like Stern, that's fine. No need to go bitching about it. Just don't listen & move on.

    So if he takes time off, or doesn't want to work every other Friday, fine. You can either pay the money, listen to whatever else is available, or cancel & listen to the many other things that you can listen to.

    Be happy & move on...:)

    At 12 cents a share, Howard told people to cancel? Nice business move. :eek:

    He got his half-billion, what does he care about stock prices? The shareholders - like his listeners - are on a long list of people suckered by Howard.

    And now you can add Bubba to that list. Howard openly expressed his desire to see Bubba get fired from his terrestrial gig. When that happens, will Howard finally make Sirius pay Bubba his full quote? Not Mr. "Make Your Own Deal". Will he carve out some of his half-billion dollar paycheck to make up the difference? Right after hell freezes. If Bubba gets fired, Sirius will offer him even less money, and he'll have to take it because he'll have no other place to go. Sucker.

  6. Glad I never followed through on Jim Norton's advice from back in the day......

    "Why don't you throw your XM receiver down the toilet, buy a Sirius, and then fuck your mother"

    Well, at least I didn't do two of them. :whistle:

    I also thought that was VERY retarded of him. This isn't the economy to be telling people to "go fuck yourself." When they are paying money to listen to a radio.

    totally agree. esp @ those whopping 12 cent a share stock prices. I'm sure the executives @ sirius may have given howard an earful regarding that kinda of tyrade.

    I doubt it. Howard has his money and is gone at the end of the contract, if they are still in business at the end of his contract.

    Do you want Howard fans to come into The Virus forum and start commenting on a show they do not listen to and claim to hate?

    Because that can be arranged, Fergy.

    Sure if you have a point other then 0.0. Again this is about his comments to the subscribers. I didn't have to hear it to have an opinion on what he said.

    I think you know I have many, many more points than just saying "0.0" Fergy. Does this mean I'm invited into The Virus forum?

    -- Be very, very careful now. Remember what you pleaded for at the other place, Fergy.

    Didn't this thread start out as Fuck Me? Fuck You? "Fuck" is the most attention getting word in the English language. What the hell does it matter if it appears in a title? Are we on network television? Are the sponsors complaining?

    I'll see you there Skippy!

    PS - Actually, no I won't. What a barren fucking wasteland. Just Goreds, Fergy and a couple hangers on barely enjoying about 3 total threads, all talking about absolutely nothing. No wonder Fergy comes over here. That place will make your brains fall out.

    jef Power Pig, Hello!

    I thought that was allowed here. Unless Forevernever changed it himself?

    I didn't change it. If the mods did, that's cool, and if I broke the rules by using that word in a title, I didn't mean to.

    Yeah, be careful Fergy! Some anonymous poster is threatening you with ominous overtones! Talk about taking things way too seriously

    I thought all the babies' comments on here was more incendiary than anything Howard said yesterday. We lost some uncensored bubba shows, but it's not the end of the world. If you don't like it, go cancel, who needs ya.
