Pete Carroll is no angel. But the head coach of the Patriots makes him look like one.

"Both fanbases are obnoxious wankers that make ISIS look like a few rowdy lads you could have a beer with."

Oh, sweet irony. Here's a video from the three-part series "Life of Ty" where Lawson promoted the ride share company  Lyft.

Media

Well, folks, if you're planning to go to the Nuggets game tonight you can probably expect not to see Ty Lawson as the dimunitive point guard was popped riding dirty in LODO after 1AM Friday morning. Lawson was visibly impared according to Denver PD and slurring his speech. 

The arrest is Lawson's second for DUI in Denver.  Not good. He was driving 28 MPH over the speed limit, too, which means that he's not just a drunk driver. He's a bad drunk driver. 

Stay tuned. We'll be keeping our eyes peeled to see how the Nuggets respond. Will he be suspended? Fined? Traded? Forced to ride with Javale on his Segway?

Change is in the air all around Denver sports radio. 102.3 is now 105.5, the Fan is presumably being purchased by Altitude Sports and the entire lineup at Mile High Sports Radio is shifting due to the Press Box shutting down.

Here's what I understand the new weekday lineup at MHS to be beginning next week. 

6AM-7AM The Rude Awakening with Josh Dover and Jesse Trujillo

7AM-9AM Morning Mayhem with Danny Williams and Marcello Romano

9AM - NOON The Brandon Spano Show

NOON - 1PM Whitely on Sports with Gil Whitely

1PM-2PM The Irv and Joe Show

2PM-4PM The Big Show with Chris Braden, Benny Bash and Kent Erickson

4PM-6PM Afternoon Drive with Eric Goodman, Josh Pennock and Will Peterson

6PM-7PM the Renknowitall w/ Renaud Notaro, Dr. Travis Heath, Andrew Mason and Colin Daniels (rotating)

7PM-8PM CU on Mile High Sports with Don Brenner

8PM-10PM Last Call with Benjamin Albright and Joe Morgan

"Pretty much everything Peyton Manning is yet to do can be done in 2015 - including winning a Super Bowl in a Broncos uniform. But after that he's got to go and let Brock Osweiler - or whoever happens to be the QB of the future - begin his reign for the Orange and Blue."

"Once the Broncos took a dive to the Colts on Sunday, January 11th, the Nuggets had a rare opportunity to create a gleam in the finicky eye of the Denver fan base even in the wake of the firing of John Fox and the "coaching search" that ensued. It was but a fleeting moment, however, and their opportunity quickly passed."

In the NFL being a favorite doesn't alway mean you'll win. In the South Stands $10K season-long NFL wager-off the same is true. Scott Stafford has long been a favorite to take the contest down but two dark horses, both from Mile High Sports have moved ahead of Scott over the past few weeks. It's a three-horse race now as we head into Championship Sunday.

Will Silent Stan save 104.3 the Fan?

Written by Wednesday, 14 January 2015 11:06

He owns the Avalanche. He owns the Nuggets (kind of), he owns the LA St Louis Rams, he owns Altitude Sports and Entertainment and now, if speculation holds true, "Silent" Stan Kroenke will soon own 104.3 the Fan.
The station became for sale when Entercom, who bought out Lincoln Financial Media, was forced by the FCC to divest one of it's FM signals in the Denver market. Entercom chose to divest the Fan presumably due to its overhead - which is naturally higher than that of a voice-tracked music station.

104.3 FM is anybody's to purchase and, if the purchaser were to decide to, the format of the station could easily be changed. Denver sports radio listeners might lose their favorite station. But if Kroenke Sports buys the station it will clearly remain a sports signal and continue to be the radio carrier of Avs and Nuggets games. The company is the ideal buyer for the Fan. So hopefully the rumors that KSE is the buyer are true.

According to Mark Knudson's blog, Kroenke Sports will pay $12M for the Fan and take over operations sometime in the next sixty days. This is fantastic news.  

"So long as number 18 is suiting up for the Denver Broncos the Denver Broncos will be built around Peyton Manning. The offense will be designed in his image and the defense will suffer for the tools Manning needs."

Well, it looks like the "let's get real" chapter in Peyton Manning's career in Denver has officially begun.

Darren "Dmac" McKee of 104.3 the Fan radio went live with WBZ1030 CBS radio in Boston yesterday and really let it fly concerning his feelings about number 18. Among other things, Dmac stated that Manning "miserably" failed the test of courage in the Colts game and that he has no friends on the team. Dmac also dropped this gem:

“It’s just he’s … did you really like the richest kid on your block who always had everything and always had to have everything his way and everything always went right for him and life just went fantastic for that rich kid? There’s just something unlikeable about that guy, even if he’s a great guy,” McKee said. “Manning, don’t you wish like a cement truck would fall on his head at some point?”

Now that's what I call keeping it real. Dmac is finally saying some of the same things that many Denver fans have been thinking but have been afraid to say. As long as Manning is part of the Broncos the Broncos will be all about Manning. Soon we will know if the disaster at Dove Valley was all about Manning, too.

"Peyton Manning and John Fox are a package. It would be senseless for the Broncos to fire Fox and hire a replacement for Manning's "one last run" at the playoffs. Also, it would be silly for the Broncos to retain John Fox if Manning announces his retirement."

"The agency is representing Verizon wireless and its "#WhosGonnaWin social media campaign. The idea is that participants will Tweet a total of twenty times during the playoffs using a mixture of their own words and some prescribed phrases. The company wants the Tweets to seem "organic" while meeting the specific objectives of the campaign."

"Beginning Monday, May 4th every Monday is Purple Monday at Coors Field. Everyone stupid enough to show up will get a lame-ass Purple Monday tee shirt and a "baseball bingo" card. I'm not exactly sure what baseball bingo is but if it's an excuse not to watch the game it can't be all bad."

The South Stands Denver $10K season-long NFL wager off has entered the post-season period and each of our wagerers was given $1000 extra dollars by the sports book manager to keep them tall in the saddle through the Super Bowl. One of our bettors has catapulted himself from the basement to the penthouse in this betting battle.

The regular season is over in the NFL as it is for our $10K season-long NFL wager-off. Our wagerers have now only the playoffs and the Super Bowl left in order to bolster their imaginary bankrolls. One of the five has been holding his ground at the top. Two of the five are surging and two others are barely hanging on. If you think this game is easy you're wrong.
