Lucky Number 13 for Fire Someone In Chicago Sports!

by

How many assholes in Chicago sports have been fired in the last 13 years? I’ve definitely lost track. But regardless, we’ve done a good job showing how badly we wanted most of them gone.

It was August 1st, 2008. The old website was in dire need of an update. The person running it vanished.

As I sat there on my Compaq Presario desktop (with the monitor standing on a TV dinner tray), I got to work. Within an hour or two, this very website was started. I was living in a one-bedroom apartment where the bedroom was bigger than the kitchen and living room combined.

I seriously cannot put it all into words at this moment. At 35, I’ve spent a third of my life between both sites nearly everyday. That is crazy. Many have left. Some have stuck around. And others have found us recently. To all of you, seriously, thank you. It has become routine for me to say the same things every year around this time. But it’s true. I cannot express the gratitude enough. All of you keep this website going.

I have to personally thank Genrebuster for helping out here. When you’re an awesome musician like him, you’re in demand often. Make sure you give him credit for posting here because he’s on the go constantly. I should pay this guy.

No matter what, I will keep this site going just for the sentiment. But I must say that all of you are why I keep checking in and still post. Sure, it’s not as often as it use to be. But it’s great to still see a few of us together. All of you are the best bunch of pissed off bastards I’ve ever talked to. I don’t get paid to do this. In fact, I pay money just to have this site. It’s worth every penny I’ve spent on it.

Thank you again to all of you contributing or if you’re just stopping by to see what the darkest corner of the internet provides. It isn’t taken for granted.

    Thanks for giving us diehard Chicago sports Fans a place to vent our frustrations about all Chicago Teams !!

  2. chucky Says:

    Happy FUCKING Birthday Fro! Hard to believe you’re a teenager already! Pissed off bastards? Sounds about right. Actually, it sounds like a great name for a punk/metal rock band. Seriously, thank you for allowing me to vent my special kind of rage for the world to see. It’s a miracle I’m not locked up somewhere. It’s been a blast actually to clean up some of the trash in Chicago. But, as you can see, our work is not done. The Cubs and the Bears are in need of serious housecleaning, the Blackhawks are in serious decline and needs our attention, and the Bulls are at the moment incomplete. Let’s get to it, our teams need us!

  3. genrebuster Says:

    Fro, Happiest of Birthdays to this website! Thank you, my frendt for continuing what ‘bobbyd’ started!

    I’ll look forward to seeing you again this year, hopefully before too much time passes.

    I’m very happy to contribute as possible and hope to be more active (again) down the road.

    I have so enjoyed the banter, and getting to know some of you guys who have posted/contributed here through the years; special thanks to those who still show up and to all who have joined us recently.

    So…who gets fired next? hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    tick tock…tick tock…tick tok tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tok tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tok tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tok tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tok tock…tick tock…tick tock…tick tok tock… 😉

    Hey Fro, you hear about Bray Wyatt? That was a stunner to me! Just like when cut Braun Strowman loose. Fucking Laurinaitis does know his ass from third base.

  5. Fro Dog Says:

    Chuckster!

    I did. You know, I haven’t talked wrestling much on here the last several years. That’s because it’s been awful. I’m still following it regularly. But wow, it’s fucking awful. Both WWE and AEW are obsessed with long matches, commercial breaks during those matches, oversaturated and shitty storylines. It’s certainly not the wrestling I grew up watching. There are a lot of problems.

    And yet, it’s ironic you brought it up. I’ll be at Raw tonight in Rosemont. I’ll also be going to the AEW Rampage show at the United Center on the 20th. CM Punk is pretty much a certain to show up. It should be interesting.

  6. Nemo Says:

    Thanks for keeping this site open, Fro and Genre for helping!!
    I know I might not come here for weeks or months at a time, but when this shit went down with the Cubs, this is where I wanted to be. I’m so glad it’s still here.

  7. Erniesarmy Says:

    Thanks Fro for all the years you’ve been there for us long suffering Cubs fans. For me, I’m finishing my 57th year and it isn’t getting better. I believe I had more hope in 1964 than I do now. Thanks for Genre letting me vent, and where else are you going to find a Chucky to tell it like it is. Thanks to everybody.

  8. Dave Says:

    Hey Fro. Waiting to see what you think about the Bulls offseason moves. I have a mixed opinion about Lonzo Ball, though he is a better player than he was at the beginning of his career. I also question how all the pieces will really fit together to make this team competitive. Though the outlook on the Bulls should be at least a little upward since the GarPax era has ended.

  9. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Vuce DeRozan and LaVine defense? I’d say First Round exit.

  10. Fro Dog Says:

    Dave and Pie,

    I am so frustrated with those moves. They drafted MY GUY from Illinois, Ayo Dosunmu. And what do they do? They sign three more guards from free agency. It’s ass-backwards with these clowns. Just throw a bunch of money at these guys and as Pie said, it’s good enough for a first-round exit.

    At best, they get to the second round and then get bounced by the Bucks or Nets. DRAFT AND DEVELOP a star. Level-two tier free agents that are overpaid aren’t the answer.

  11. chucky Says:

    OK guys, get this.

    The Chicago Cubs are one step closer to hosting legal sports betting at Wrigley Field after getting approval Thursday from the Commission on Chicago Landmarks to build a proposed two-story sportsbook adjacent to the historic ballpark.

    A partnership with DraftKings, the glass-walled sportsbook would be located at Addison Street and Sheffield Ave. at the southeast corner of Wrigley Field. It still requires approval from the City Council, the Illinois Gaming Board and the National Park Service, after the ballpark’s designation last year as a National Historic Landmark.

    Cubs spokesman Julian Green said the addition of a sportsbook at Wrigley Field is important to attracting more fans to the game.

    “While the game of baseball has largely been the same for the last 150 years, the fans have changed,” Green said in an email after the commission’s decision Thursday. “The way they consume baseball is different through emerging technology and content platforms. Sports wagering is becoming a big part of that change and this sportsbook will allow us to connect fans to the game in new ways.”

    Wrigley Field, which was built in 1914, was designated a Chicago landmark in 2004.

    Allowed by the 2019 Illinois Sports Wagering Act, the Wrigley Field sportsbook still requires the City Council to sign off on a proposed ordinance enabling Chicago sports venues to get sports wagering licenses, as well as approval from the state gaming board.

    So, they can’t afford Yu Darvish anymore so they trade him, and can’t negotiate deals for Rizzo, Bryant, and Baez because they’re too expensive, so they trade them, but they can afford THIS goddamned bullshit? Man, fuck Ricketts. I’m fucking done.

  12. chucky Says:

    Has David FUCKING Ross been fired yet?

  13. chucky Says:

    Headline from Cubs.com:

    “Arrieta looks to rebound”

    The fucking hack just gave up 7 goddamn runs in the top of the first fucking inning! And David FUCKING Ross left him out there to to face 11 Brewers and get absolutely shelled. This goddamned team is fucking HORSESHIT!!!!!!!!!! And it’s being managed by a goddamned moron. This fucking shit has to stop.

    Fire Ross.
    Fire Hoyer.
    Flog Tom Ricketts

  14. Paul Says:

    You call giving up 7 runs in 2 innings a rebound , Come on Ross bench him and while you’re at it ,Dumbass, release Ian Happless and then FIRE yourself!!

  15. chucky Says:

    Paul, all seven of those runs came in the first inning alone. Right now it’s the bottom of the 3rd, and can you guess who is at bat. If you guessed Jake Arrieta, you win!

  16. Paul Says:

    What’s Ricketts doing, counting his money because he sure doesn’t care about the product that’s put on the field!! Hoyer are you watching what’s going on with the team , please pull your head out of your rectum or where ever you have it stuck!!

  17. chucky Says:

    Hoyer caused this fucking train wreck. It was probably on Ricketts orders, but that’s no excuse. I’d have sooner quit this bullshit organization than break up this team. This shit is worse than when Epstein brought in whiney little bitch Ian Stewart to play third base. Hoyer fucking sucks donkey ass.

  18. Pie in the Sky Says:

    So trade the younger talent at the deadline to begin the rebuild. Then play super old Arrieta so he can rebound?

  19. chucky Says:

    Super old…..and just plain bad Arrieta.

  20. Erniesarmy Says:

    Hey, Chucky, some good news today;

    The Chicago Cubs released right-hander Jake Arrieta on Thursday, ending his second stint with the franchise.

    They only had to lose ten games before they realized “Hey, he ain’t no good anymore.” Fire David Ross!!

  21. chucky Says:

    I just saw Ernie! Fuckin took them long enough to figure that out! The lead story on Cubs.com today is “Losing’s Not Kyles Style”. Then explain to me why he gave up a five spot in the top of the second. These bullshit optimistic headlines on the Cubs webpage when they’re getting crushed just piss me the fuck off! I’d love, just one time, to go there and read “The Cubs Suck. This Team Is A Fucking Train Wreck!” At least it be honest.

    For a change.

  22. Erniesarmy Says:

    Yeah, Chucky, I just saw the score, Milwaukee 16 Chicago 3! Who’s pitching in this game, Kevin Gregg? This Cub ballclub isn’t even a Major League team anymore. Are you happy now, Ricketts? What a mess of a franchise.

  23. chucky Says:

    Hell Ernie, I would say that this is even a AA team at this point. Pitching this series against the Brewers has been for fucking shit! Who’s the pitching coach, the ghost of Larry Rothschild? What the fuck is this shit!?

  24. Erniesarmy Says:

    Chucky, I hear ya loud and clear. Too bad your not the one writing the headlines for Cubs.com. it would certainly be a lot more honest and colorful.

  25. Paul Says:

    Arrieta is gone then Happ, Heyward, Hoyer ,and Ross need to go plus Ricketts needs to sell the team!!

  26. chucky Says:

    Screw them. I’m ready for some shitty Bears football now. I need something new to bitch about goddamnit!

  27. chucky Says:

    Jesus fucking Christ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Top of the 5th, and they’re down 14-5! An 11 run second? Are you fucking kidding me? It’s time to admit that Adbert Alzolay sucks donkey balls. He’s a fucking bust! Unload his useless ass like you did with Arrieta! And quite frankly, the rest of this goddamned pitching staff sucks massive ass too! Theo Epstein leaves, and the goddamned Cubs just fall apart. This is a collapse of absolute epic proportions. David FUCKING Ross is surpassing Dusty FUCKING Baker as the worst manager of all time. And Jed FUCKING Hoyer? You pal, are no Theo Epstein. Fuck, you’re not Jim Hendry.

    FUCK ROSS!
    FUCK HOYER!
    AND FLOG FANBOY!

    You all fucking suck goddamned skunk dick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fuck you all!

  28. Paul Says:

    Wait until next year, for more of the same! Hawks and Bulls , they suck maybe the White Sox will do something!

  29. chucky Says:

    “I know this whole team has been battling,” he said. “It’s been really hard the last couple of weeks, but we’re doing everything we can to put everything together to win. Hopefully, we can turn things around and start winning games.”

    ——————————————————————————————-

    Sounds like Lovie Smith, or John Fox, or maybe Marc Trestman, with his toolbox full of concepts, doesn’t it? But alas, no. It’s was David FUCKING Ross, useless incompetent hack manager of your Chicago Cubs. The same worthless piece of shit who oversaw an 11 game losing streak that caused the departure of three of the most loved players in team history. And the same worthless piece of shit who is currently overseeing a goddamned 9 game losing streak. So, the same old question remains. Why is this stupid so of a bitch still employed? Another question might be: Why isn’t this fucking douchecopter coaching the Bears?

    Inquiring minds want to know!

  30. chucky Says:

    Well now, it seems that now Adbert Alzolay is on the IL. A “hamstring” injury it seems. I’m seeing a pattern here men. Whenever a pitcher has a streak of shitty outings it because of some nondescript “hamstring” injury. First Arrieta, now Alzolay. Excuse me for a moment while I call bullshit on this latest “injury”……..

    By the way, they’re on their way to their to their tenth straight loss, and 15 out of 17. Tell me again why David FUCKING Ross is still here?

  31. chucky Says:

    Jesus FUCKING Christ!!!!!!!!!!! Swept! Swept by the goddamn Miami MOTHERFUCKING Marlins!!!!!!!! I’m going to lose my goddamn mind!

    They now have their second 11 game losing streak of the year, and there is absolutely no fucking hope for them. Between Ross and Hoyer, this team has been utterly destroyed. The Cubs will NEVER, EVER win the World Series with this regime. From the ownership on down to on field managers and coaches, this organization is a flat out train wreck of epic proportions.

  32. Paul Says:

    Relax Chucky, they’re the good old lovable loser Cubbies of the past and we don’t have any control over that but we can stay away from Wrigley Field !! Ricketts might do something if his revenue starts to decline! The Bears might surprise us this year if Nagy lets someone else call the plays!

  33. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Okay. I’ve just got to ask… is this you at the :21 mark? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ByAXCjqBzLg

  34. Fro Dog Says:

    Guilty as charged! What a crazy night. I was front row for that.

  35. Paul Says:

    The Bears are showing how bad Nagy really is as a Head coach, if you want to call him that!! 41-12 and the defense can’t stop anything, , they’re making Mitch look good!!!

SHOW DA FIRE AND PASSION, MY FRENDT!
