What's worse is that people listen to him and thing that he's a credible football analyst. A player who can't get along with Greg Williams, Joe Gibbs and Marvin Lewis doesn't deserve to be listened to. He had 1 play for an 0-5 team, other than that he was a useless POS.
There appears to be a light at the end of the tunnel. I just hope it's not a train.
Clearly so many people disagree that LaVar sucks, cause they voted him in as one of the 80 greatest skins..ever. I tend to agree as a player, all he really did was be the least worst of a really bad time of football. Chris Samuels was far and away the better player from the same draft. The only LaVar leap I remember was when he got us 15 yards for piling on, which BTW, was the only time I've ever seen that penalty called.
All that said, if he's willing to allegiance to B&G and live and die with the rest of us, I'll take him. I thought he was really overly negative too when he first got on the air, but he was right in hindsight to be critical.
Anyway you slice it, life isn't the same without the Don and Mike show...just not the same.

What's so ironic about this thread is that most people here are calling Lavar and Dukes negative and complaining about them. Yet, it's rare I see someone post a thread where 80 percent of the comments aren't negative towards the OP. Whatever makes some of you feel tougher I guess. That is all.
I use to agree until i actually listened to the show and just not base an opinion of minimal Listnening. It is a good show in my opinion but To each it's own

...That being said they're probably my third favorite (or most listened to) radio show on that station (after the Junkies and Kevin and Rock). At least they come with something. Mike Wise and Holden weren't that good, but the bits on Holden and Danny are just unbearable. I'd rather listen to NPR than them, and I literally do turn over to 88.5 and listen to Diane Rehm (with her scratchy voice, God bless her) and Kojo Namdi (Naaaamdi).

Lavar is just incoherent and DUMB. He's awful on the radio and I really wonder what Chad Dukes REALLY thinks of him. Dude stays kissing his behind. Their afternoon show is an afterthought to me. I'm usually listening to 980 or Sirius.
I like the Junkies, because they don't pretend to be experts at knowing sports...on top of it all, they do treat callers well and with respect.
When I get the chance, I do enjoy Danny and Holden mid-day.
I think Lavar if anything is very clear in his thoughts, sure he can ramble and be a goof ball sometimes but when he has a serious point to make on a topic, he does a decent job.
The Junkies? I mean, if you were to get some of the more articulate and respected posters on this board and give them a show ... THEY WOULD BLOW THE JUNKIES OUT OF THE WATER. With little or no training.
Also, I distinctly remember changing the radio station and not coming back for awhile because of how they handled one call .. .so freaking rude, and it wasn't funny. If they were rude and funny, different story.
I strictly listen to 106.7 for the Skins' beat reporter and for breaking news ... nothing else. This a.m. Paulson did his thing, then Junkies started talking about what they were packing for some ****ing trip ... I was out, quick. 4-5 min tops.

Just a small example of how DMV isn't really a die hard sports town, regardless of the success (or failures) of its teams!!
106.7 is dead to me. I gave the 'Fan' a chance. The station encourages the worst kind of fan. From the uninformed Junkies to even less informed Lavar and Dukes. These are the bread and butter time slots for the station and this is what they decided to serve the public.
Junkies = 'The View' for sports challenged men who would rather be watching the Bachelor and like talking like my 8th grade nephew

Lavar has never once offered an analysis of a formation...most likely b/c he has never recognized one ever...
