Jason Goff was too intelligent for his listeners ..
I hate to say it like that, but yeah.
I like Jamie, but if Rick isn't talking NBA he's horrible. He has this fake love affair with the SEC too.

Kinda funny how we differ in opinion on these shows. I never liked 790 till the Barnhart n Durham show. That was great radio and my all time favorite sports talk show.
The stews were entertaining but I just couldn't follow them daily,
Archer n Bell was actually decent to me surprisingly.
As for 680....I detest Ruud, chuck, n chernoff. Any show involving them is radio sewage.
I really like Buck n Kinkaid. I know Buck is a mutt but I find his commentary to be very knowledgeable and unbiased.
Sandra n Finneran are ok only...steak is awful.

I listened to 790 all the time until they started carrying Colin Cowherd during the day. What a horrible voice to listen too for hours during the day. I liked Archer and Bell but all they talked about when I tuned in was the Falcons. Very little Braves talk. I do listen to 680 now but cringe whenever they sing the praises of UGA. Buck Beleu has not business being a talk show host. His weird vocal patterns get on my last nerve.

92.9 is dog crap. Randy Cross refused to preview the ACC since it wasn't football. Bunch of self-righteous ....
I agree with this assessment of 92.9. I tried listening to them, but turned them off when the discussion about SEC expanding and possibly taking 1-2 ACC teams, and one of their on-air folks stated (and his co-hosts agreed) that the only ACC football teams the SEC would be interested in were North Carolina and Notre Dame. I thought "idiots", changed the channel, and have never listened to them again.

Thats actually a really good way to say that. A lot of times callers would get angry not realizing he was messing with them...

You never had to suffer through Buck doing a local TV sportscast, as we did down here Savannah way.

I detest 680 so I'm forced to listen to 92.9.
How 790 could have botched it up this bad.
I was mostly a lurker on a radio forum that had a bunch of ATL radio old timers (mostly engineers, board oprators, etc and a few DJ's from years past) on it a few years back before a software changeover for them. 790 regularly became a topic and no one could understand their business model

There's no telling what that ex-QB would be doing if it was not for Hershel Walker.

680 humor really meshes with mine, more than the other stations. Their uga homorism does really get annoying and I usually switch back to music for their uga segments. I do like their take on braves and falcons though. For me, they make Atlanta traffic more bearable. Chuck and chernoff have gotten a little better over the past year towards Tech after they realized that CPJ wasn't just a miserly old guy, and I really enjoy their interviews with Bobinski even if they are like 30 seconds.
