Chet Coppock: Residential Turd


If you could pick one clown in the Chicago media who would write such asinine articles mostly in favor of who he likes, rather than who really deserves it, it’s Chet Coppock.

Just a little background on this guy they call Chet: Chet Coppock has been in the Chicago media for roughly 20-30 years. His last stint was with Mike North on which was an online radio station and no longer in business. Before that, he was a host on ESPN Radio 1000 in Chicago. His latest accomplishments were getting punched in the eye in the parking lot at the AllState arena in 2007 as well as getting suspended by ESPN Radio for allegedly pulling down his pants in front of a female coworker. You want more? He was again suspended in 2008 for making offensive comments towards Jewish people on the air.

This article was brought to my attention the other day and it was worth mentioning on how awful the list was compiled. In that article, he compiled a list of the worst sportscasters of the last 25 years. Then this article lists the best sportscasters of the last 25 years. Now, I am not going to list all of the names that were on there but I will list a few that stick out as either being on there or not being on there.

A few from his list of the worst:

#12 on the worse sportscaster list: Neil Funk.

– Neil Funk? One of the worse? Seriously? He was the voice of the Bulls on the radio for 17 seasons and for the last two on tv. He has called every great Bulls moment on the radio during the championship seasons and has done it with excellence. Due to not having cable, I was only treated some selected Bulls games during the regular season and most playoff games. He doesn’t even rank close to being a bad announcer.

#8: Megan Mawicke

– You picked her when there could be ten other shitty sportscasters in the city now as we speak? She isn’t the greatest but sure not one of the worst.

#7: Dan Bernstein

– Dan Bernstein can be a dick. He looks like a weasel and he is known to piss off a lot of people. But you know what? He is right most of the time. He speaks the facts for the most part. I don’t listen to sports radio as much as I use to but when I do, Boers and Bernstein is the only show I listen to. For Chet Coppock to say that Dan Berstein is “The kind of guy who can make you question why the human race exists”, you can tell that it is personal with him and this guy.

#1: Gail Fischer

– The worst ever? So Chip Carey didn’t come up in your head as the worse? How about Chuck Swirsky? David Kaplan sucks worse than all of them. But oh well. I guess we can now assume that Chet is a sexist.

Now on to his list of the best:

#10: Dan McNeil

– Not even close. Once again, another butt buddy of good ol’ Chet. McNeil was also suspended when he worked at ESPN Radio for calling a woman a bitch on the air. Nice going dick.

#6: Mike North

– The same Mike North who continuously made racial remarks during his days from the Score? The same Mike North who was let go from the Score? The same Mike North who started an online radio station and hired an executive who embezzeld money? Oh maybe the same Mike North who started a morning show on Comcast SportsNet and after a year is getting dropped? Oh yeah. He is one of the best.

So on both of these lists, he had 12 a peice.

Not only is his list more personal than professional, it is a list that is not very well compiled. It seems like the two lists should be flip flopped. Chet did not make any mention of Pat Foley (Voice of Blackhawks TV) as one of the best. He didn’t even rank Wayne Larrivee (Voice of the Bulls on TV and Bears on the radio in the 90’s).

So thanks for putting this list together Chet. I am sure you will get more credibility. There must be a reason why you don’t really have a job anymore other than “blogging” for a site shittier than mine.

    Chet Coppeck is a fucking assbag. Period. Anybody who takes that piece of shit seriously is as fucked up as he is. I wish I was the one who popped him in the eye.

  2. Fro Dog Says:

    Chucky, you and I both on punching him the eye. When I saw those two articles, I was convinced that he deserved to get punched in the eye that night. And of course, he is unemployed at the moment because the website he writes for isn’t a job. All of it is uttered garbage.

  3. MadCityMac Says:

    I don’t even know who this asshat is but I hate him already! What a douche!

  4. chucky Says:

    Fro… You and I could take turns holding him down while the other pounds his face in with a piece of heavy mining equipment.

    And MadCityMac…you’re welcome to join us if you like!

    Just bring something heavy.

  5. dfm Says:

    Wayne Larivee used to be a decent announcer, now he is just terrible. I had the “pleasure” to listen to him on some games on the Big Ten Network and he is the voice of Packer radio up here in Wisco. Simply awful.

    Not including Pat Foley on his list is just stupid on Coppocks end. Classic calls. I loved the combo of Pat and Dale Tallon back in the day.

  6. Dan from Madison Says:

    Bah, that was me above, using my short handle that I use elsewhere.

  7. Fro Dog Says:


    Pat Foley is not as good as Mike North. No way on Coppock’s watch.

    Pat and Dave in the old days. I remember in the mid 90’s when Foley and Tallon did the game of the week on FOX. Talk about a duo. Although, I am enjoying Foley and Eddie Olcyck on TV these days.

  8. genrebuster Says:

    Chet who? Does he wear that tie with or without pants?

    Happy Chanukah Chet, you little putz you!!!!

  9. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    Pat Hughes should have been on the list as the best. Anyone who can put up with Ron Santo’s crap for 6 months a year for the last 13 or 14 years months is a trooper in my opinion. That guy has class, a great voice and a high tolerance level especially for Santo.

    “OH GEEZ!!!”

    By the way, anything new on Milton getting traded or is Hendry going to wait until February to do it?

  10. robert Says:

    Matt Hendry has a few trades he is working on ( we all know he always says that but nothing comes to fruition)

  11. genrebuster Says:

    Milton Bradley for a big bag of bullshit.

  12. robert Says:

    genre shit is useful for growing stuff what use does milton have

  13. robert Says:

    hendry wants marlon byrd the last few guys hendry has wanted have turned out great:

    Aaron Heilmann…Hendry wanted him so bad he turned down a trade with the mets for Sammy Sosa that would have netted the cubs jose reyes cause it did not include heilmann
    Milton Bradley
    Aaron Miles
    Juan Pierre
    Neifi Perez
    Michael Barrett

  14. People who piss me off in Chicago sports: Sarah Spain. « Fire Jerry Angelo – Fire Jim Hendry Says:

    […] with a lot of idiots both in Chicago media and on websites like this one. In December, I wrote an article similar to this one I am about to present about an idiot named Chet […]
