    He certainly knows his basketball, but his personality is grating. It's not absurd for people to not like him. I can't stand the guy, and I've told him as much.

    I don't know if it's because of it's location (near or below sea level) or what, but WWL's 50,000 watts can be picked up in just about every state (lower 48) once the sun goes down - especially in the winter. There was some speculation that they were broadcasting over 50,000 watts. I am pretty sure they used to broadcast late-night in Spanish to Cuba back in the 60's right after Fidel took over. The original Road Gang Show after midnight targeted truckers across the country. I am willing to bet, we will hear more commercials from national brands and less about drink specials at Port-of-Call.

    The most obvious scenario this creates is, if you want to carry the Saints games, you have to pick up the Hornets as well. This is a major coup.

    Can we dare hope that somehow, someway Gerry V takes over SportsTalk on WWL now that the Hornets are on WWL? Reduce Deke to a Kristian Garic type role---sub host or weekend host. I could handle SportsTalk on WWL if it was V and Bobby. Plus could you imagine "Bobby from Atlanta" calling V on SportsTalk? ( You long timers on this message board will remember the posts that "Bobby from Atlanta" used to make on this board. Those were classic!)

    1-What does not move is dead.What has speed,and mobilty has more possibilities,more life...quickness creates luck.

    2- Your Defense is only as good as your HELP/ROTATING defenders.

    3-Games are won while the ball is in the air.


    4- You design your roster to win a 7 game series not a one game confrontation.

    From Coullion63 on http://www.nolasportskrewe.com/showthread.php?t=1665

    Gerry, Bob and Gil are no longer with the Hornets. I would assume that Fox Sports net will hire the TV broadcasters.

    I don't know too much about the situation but I can promise you this, V will be back on the New Orleans sports media scene soon.

    Just guessing but, could Bob, Gil, GV be on the FSNOLA team. With GV and Gill rotating between sideline reporting and color commentary.

    For the record, I really like this move, but I don't see how John D. fits into this picture.

    On a side note, isn't Jim Henderson retired from WWL TV. Could he be our TV play by play guy?

    Lol, I've had it out with you on here. You and good ol' Harvey decided to partake in a little tag team action.

    But to make it perfectly clear -- when it comes to basketball, you know your stuff. But as a person, I can't stand you.

    What do ya know...diaper's still dry...

    Hopefully Gil is nowhere within a five hundred mile radius of a Hornets game. Pleasant enough guy but oh... man... awful on commentary.

    Wasn't V the one who predicted the Saints would lose in the Superbowl? I think I recall him saying some non complimentary things about the Saints and Benson also.
    If so do you think Benson forgot and will give him a job with the Hornets? Don't think so!!

    Jim Henderson once implored Benson to sell the Saints in an editorial. That blew over and he Henderson stayed as play by play announcer. I would be surprised if V is blackballed

    Yes they did... in fact he (Bob Licht) went another season on the radio side even after Steve Martin went to Charlotte.

    remember when Marv Albert's little bro (I think it was his brother) was Hornets TV play-by-play guy? Yeah... that lasted all of 1 season

    I think it was Kenny Albert, Marv's son.

    Wikipedia says it was Steve Albert http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...s_broadcasters

    and yes I know wikiedia can be wrong... case in point... it lists Jordy Hultberg as the sideline reporter... Jordy hasn't been Hornets sideline reporter for like 2 or 3 seasons... as we all know it's been Victor Howell

    and they already list Bob, Gil & Jordy as the broadcast team for this coming season... that's yet TBA

    but I'm inclined to believe it since I know it was an Albert... and I now remember my 1st reaction to seeing him was "well at least it's another Steve"... that was the horrid season before CP3's arrival... as well as Hurricane Katrina's

    as for Kenny Albert... you know that name from Fox NFL Sunday... he's on their # 2 announce team w/ Darryl "Moose" Johnson and Tony "Goose" Saragusa

    It was Steve Albert during the 2004-2005 season. Marv's brother.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston
