View Full Version : Do Dakich and MJB have an issue with each other?

Dakich just went after Mark pretty hard on the radio. Called him whacked out and called him out for his stance on Sam Steele (now Sam Ponder) marrying Christian Ponder of the Vikings. MJB called out Dakich last night for his views on Lance. Is there some history here that I don't know about?

Mark sort of helped Dakich get his start in radio and Mark used to be on Dak's show about once a week.

I listened to Dan's show for the first and last time today. Name calling, hyperbole, factually incorrect statements... Not my thing.I don't get the point of listening to things like that. If Mark is refusing to be on that show, it seems like he's making a wise choice.

I listened to the first 30mins of the show, and there was more. Dan said he doesn't refer to Lance as "employee #1 or something stupid like that" which was a clear dig at MJB, from where I'm sitting because that's how he refers to Pacers players routinely.

Disagree, Dakich likes the NBA, was all about the PAcers when they got up 2-1 on the Heat last year, and I would say he routinely pumps them on his show.

When it came out that she was dating Ponder, Boyle nailed her on it on twitter pretty hard, called it completely unprofessional and then there was a bit of a suggestion by MJB that most sideline reporters don't actually have any journalistic credential that gets them their job. This was a few months ago.

Ransom
02-06-2013, 02:08 PM
Ah, okay. Well to be honest that's a bit disappointing, though I'm not in the profession nor do I really know the situation. Of course saying sideline reporters are under qualified isn't exactly a unique opinion.

I figured the most controversial statement would have been Dan saying there was only one pro prospect on the floor during the IU-UM game, and that being Zeller.

Someone called in and pointed out Burke, and he goes "If that's the type of PG's you like" I can only stomach about 30-40 minutes before his ego starts oozing out of my phone and makes a mess all over my desk.

OK so apparently MJB was upset he stopped getting paid to come on the show? That is what Dakich just said on the radio. Weird. Feel like two personalities clashing for no reason. Dakich is full of a lot of hot air though, don't know if I could do his show weekly either LOL

I just take it as 2 huge egos clashing. When egos are that large doesn't take much to alienate the other, and appears grudges are held.

Personally I still like them both. Boyle's ego was such when he hosted a "talk show" he said the fewer callers the better. Mark is a very good play by play guy but his self value as a host turned me off.

At first I thought you were talking about a gay couple, Sam being a boys name. I really didn't know who either person was. I googled Sam Steele, nice looking girl by the way, but a lot of do about nothing. Personally I like Mark, but I think life comes before sports.

I think both Dan and Mark are being unprofessional taking their jabs at each other on the air.

A steady diet of Dakich is pretty hard to take, but I do find it more than a bit hilarious when he blows up bad callers. That being said, I like Boyle better. And seeing as how MJBoyle has dipped his toes in the PD water, Mr Dakich can exit out the back door any time.

I think in order to be a radio/sports personality, there's some level of egotism that is fundamental to success. That said, given that MJB and DD are both successful (;)), it's inevitable that they will clash.

One could even argue it adds fuel to the listening fire.

Let's move onto more interesting topics. :)

So once again UncleBuck goes "JOB fan" on us and talks up the DD show as the best. Not even "I enjoy it", but "the best".

Give me Michael Grady and Big Joe any day. I prefer my sports talk to be a little bit more in touch with the current world and a lot more reasonable. To me Grady and Kevin Lee are the best blends of voice, delivery, reasonable opinions and knowledge.


We all got a kick out of him just over the top bashing Miami as soft last year because we all hate Miami and loved to hear anything ripping on the Heat. But then DD goes and sits courtside with a freaking snow cone a day after calling Miami soft (or same day, I forget).


The funny thing is that about the only time I ever tolerated the DD show was explicitly when MJB was on with him. So if the station decided to skip payments for not being worth the return, I think they missed the mark on that choice.

Meh, sports talk radio is always a step behind these days. Any topic regarding the NBA and the Pacers any of the shows on 1070 bring up are old news on PD by the time they're talking about it. Don't care for Dakich, he's ok, but he clearly is just trying to a personality/character. No different than what Howard Stern did in the 80's, just a different theme. I'll give some props to Grady and Big Joe, as their show is the only one that when I flip on is almost always talking sports. DD is often talking about his high school days and JMV is talking about music, movies, or beer. But at the end of the day its all just filler in the car unless Wells, Woj, or Brunner is on.

DD has a lot of BS, but he is fun to listen to while I'm at work. DD is more to the point and is a lot less political, however, he does protect his interest.
As far as the deal today, I didn't read to much into it. I really don't care what Mark has to say, so it was a moot point to me.

Ok, angry community of Pacer fans, calm yourself. Dan Dakich is a bit of an egomaniac (a little understatement on my part) but he knows college basketball very well and gives you perspective that you wouldn't have unless you've been through the process as a coach or player. And, no, he doesn't do NBA really well until the playoffs, which is a lot of NBA fans in general.

Now he isn't easy to take in long periods, but just like with most everybody you have to take them with a grain of salt. He can be highly annoying but he has never been, nor will he ever be an espn news force feeding talking puppet. He'll tell it like it is to whomever he's talking to. Now if you don't like what he does beyond that it's just how it is. Maybe he's rude to his callers but if you want to call in you certainly can. Which is more than you can say about other radio hosts.

That being said I am entertained by Dan Patrick, Grady & Joe and Querry and Shultz more.

I can't stand when they ask Mark Boyle about the Pacers. He doesn't even offer a real opinion. I remember a segment where JMV got straight up testy with him and exclaiming "well why they hell do we even have you on here ever week!?" when he asked his opinion about various Pacer topics and Boyle would dodge the questions with a snarky remarks like "Well i'm not the owner so what I would do isn't important"

Additionally, I'm not sure if you all have noticed but when they have Conrad Brunner on, he acts a bit jaded about this Pacer team and the organization. He never has anything to nice to say about certain players. I'm thinking somebody is a bit butt hurt about his contract not being renewed.

Half the reason podcasts > sports radio. No one talks about sports on radio. It's just a lot of guys trying to convince the world they're half as clever as they sound in their head, for the most part. Or maybe it's just Indy radio. I can stomach Query & Schultz, that's about it.

And, no, he doesn't do NBA really well until the playoffs, which is a lot of NBA fans in general.

.

True. I'm torn on Dan. I used to love his show, but it's gone to pure crap over the last year. Oddly enough, the combination of his rise on ESPN and getting divorced seems to have destroyed his show. I enjoy it when he has a good guest on, but frequently he ends up just talking about how awesome he thinks he is, how great the region is, why women are smarter than men, and, of course, sandwiches. I really like Grady and Big Joe, but wish they'd dump Dakich and put on Cowherd, who I at least can stand.

But I do like him when he's doing basketball on TV. Probably because he knows basketball, and on TV he has to stay on topic, instead of rambling about all the other crap that he seems to think he knows.

As for Mark, everytime I hear him on the radio I think I'd enjoy having a drink with the guy. He's definitely got some snarkyness to him. Also enjoy his Pacers commentary.

How could we get through a whole thread on dissing DD without mentioning his sarcastic love for Southern Indiana guy? "Oh, Bawby would never do it that way! Aw, bring back Bawby...miss those days!" We will probably get a heavy dose of that today after IU's loss last night.
Cracks me up whenever he goes into his ol' southern boy accent because he's dead on!

Nah, the show's just boring. I liked it when he talked about sports. But now that's about 20% of the time. I don't like Dan as a person, so I don't want to listen to him talk about himself for 2 hours. It's boring and he definitely sucks up and homers to a specific type of crowd. I think he comes across as almost insecure.

I find him entertaining. (I must admit I only ever listen to the first hour of his show, so maybe he gets more off topic as his proceeds into the second and third hour) and I respect his opinion on basketball. Also surprised that he is very pro-NBA especially in the playoffs, he loves the playoffs. He makes fun of those college only fans during the NBA playoffs.


I enjoy when he is rude to callers because I agree with him that most callers are idiots.

That's it.. DD is petty little boy when it comes to some things. Boyle doesn't want to do Dan's show for whatever reason and DD just can't deal with it. The fact Boyle does go on with JMV real makes Danny angry.

It's like when someone sends Dan an Email or tweet he doesn't like he totally rips the individual and then gives there Email address over the air. He is the only radio host I ever hear doing such childish things.

I want to hear opinions and analysis, regardless of whether or not I agree with it.

Sports talk in this town has never been better, IMHO. Especially since Mark Patrick was given the axe. He was as big of a homer as you could find.

I tend to agree, but too often its a bunch of idiots doing sports talk radio. I want someone who watches every Pacer game, and does his due diligence before spouting off about things he does not know. Hell I feel like JMV is a part timer in terms of Pacer knowledge. It would be great to get someone who has followed the team for a long time, and isn't afriad to take off the homer glasses. Many here fit the bill. but I havent found any radio hosts that do. Sadly like most positions it's about who you know, and not so much about what you know.
