Kyle Quincey Makes Ken Holland Look Stupid ... Again

 

There is a constant pattern of behavior regarding recent transactions, signings, roster construction and other assorted decisions made by Red Wings General Manager Ken Holland.

 

Here is the blueprint. The franchise makes some sort of decision. Then, the intelligent portion of the fanbase that bases their appraisal of such situations on advanced metrics and basic logic bashes Detroit’s NHL franchise. This is followed by many in the Canadian and American hockey press commenting on Holland’s continued idiocy.

Sources: Terry Foster's Recovery Not Going Smoothly

 

In August, 97.1 — The Ticket talk show host Terry Foster suffered from a stroke that the personality labeled in subsequent interviews as mild. Foster has been off his PM drive show since that unfortunate health episode while recuperating and going through various rehabilitation exercises.

 

When the news of Foster’s condition and leave of absence was made known to the public an announcement was also made that Foster would return to his broadcast chair to co-host with Mike Valenti on October 3rd.

I Hope To Outlive Jeff Riger So I Can Defecate on His Grave

 

Almost five years ago now, big-nosed, hideous looking, Kermit the Frog sounding 97.1 — The Ticket personality Jeff Riger wrote the most offensive and asinine article I have ever read about Detroit sports.

 

The premise was that slow-skating, one-trick pony, defensive liability, living, breathing human ricochet machine Tomas Holmstrom achieved a better career with the Red Wings than eventual first-ballot Hall of Famer Sergei Fedorov.

Tori Petry -- "Journalist"

 

This isn’t an article that will document the last 59 years of football futility in Detroit. I am not going to bring up the fact that the Lions franchise has won ONE postseason game since 1957.

 

Hell, I am being charitable so I won’t even mention that the second best player in the history of the moribund organization is currently dancing while dressed as STEVE URKEL on an embarrassing ABC reality show. In the prime of his career. While performing with a disgraced Olympian. And a little person.

Anthony Fenech Cannot Write Either, I Said

 

Detroit Free Press readers have had a nice respite recently as competent journalist George Sipple has been covering the Tigers for the paper more frequently down the stretch while derelict douche bag Anthony Fenech has been on a European vacation and who knows where else.

 

And what often gets lost in the morass of Fenech’s abhorrent treatment towards women, his checkered past with drunk driving and his penchant for banging supervisors at his place of work is the reality of how bad he is at his ACTUAL job.

Well, this was an odd episode of the DSR Podcast. It started out with me bombing former DSR managing editor Justin Spiro. It ended with Spiro making his first podcast appearance in over four months.

In the middle of the show, guest Ryan Schuiling and I discussed the Tigers chances down the stretch and in 2017 and beyond. I also broke some news about Terry Foster’s return to 97.1 — The Ticket. 

Bizarre.
