    Is it a good analogy?

    I don't watch CNN but I also don't think that Breschiani and that situation are even remotely comparable to Trump and his.

    We all live in stories... It seems to me that a definition of any living vibrant society is that you constantly question those stories... The argument itself is freedom. It's not that you come to a conclusion about it. Through that argument you change your mind sometimes... That's how societies grow. When you can't retell for yourself the stories of your life then you live in a prison... Somebody else controls the story. - S. Rushdie

    What's a better analogy when the entire Forum Communications brings out all their big names to slander NDSU with no one defending them? I'm really really not trying to be political. It just came to mind

    It was the type of bid a company puts in if they are the only ones bidding. Either they were arrogant or didnít want the bid to begin with.

    I really liked both those guys but after that crap I go to the media blog very very rarely and I used to watch and read their stuff religiously. I still seem to get my Bison fix just not from them. They really disappointed me in their antics.

    I have no idea if it will an impact on revenue, but 1660 is now the official home of the Fargo Force.

    Won't there be a time conflict with some Bison men's and women's BB games and Force games?

    No conflicts and a good move. The station flat out needs more local content. I checked the Force website but I don't see ton of games. Not sure what they normally have.
    Sounds like they will be airing the coaches show too. Good move to get more unique content that people actually care about

    I remember not only Kolpack (Izzo not so much he took the high road) but also the WDAY AM guys (including their program director) just crying and whining the next day like a school girl stood up for a date over that whole deal. They tried to Mock and make fun of NDSU when NDSU tried to enforce what was in the contract with Bison1660. Its funny how they all got their undies twisted and yet use NDSU to try to sell their broadcasts and make money and suddenly forget all the nasty shit they said over the air about NDSU.

    On another note I hear advertising on multiple stations for the bar down in Hickson (the Knickerbocker) trying to get people from Fargo Moorhead to come down and support them and watch Bison games yet they are constantly advertising about the "Fargo Dam" in opposition to it. Another example of "if we can make money off them great but otherwise fuck em" attitude. I'll never set foot in that place again. I don't support Kolpack or Izzo either. It's just unfortunate for Izzo he works for such a shitty organization.

    I think you will find plenty of NDSU fans/grads living and/or farming south of the FM area that are opposed to the diversion...
