    I am pretty sure the Dom Capers show ends at 5, anybody know whats up next? When does Matt J. come on? What are they going to do after the Dom Capers show? Perhaps a bit on Skiing or Foosball? :p

    drox, great job, man. Stupid comment by Rich Lord. Seems like the other guy is on your side, but doesn't seem like they can do much on their end. We need Clutch to come on the show and lay the smackdown on those two homers.

    i'm not really understanding this talk about "principles." everyone here has known that the rockets organization has hated us for YEARS. hello? they tried to shut us down a while ago! so i pose the next question.

    are people here surprised that this happened? sure, they let clutch in past years, but i doubt they did it with a smile on their face. this year, i guess they just decided to pull the plug. so i'm curious to know if clutch is surprised that this happened.

    viva CF.net...we're still going strong.

    I sent them an email with direct links along with articles. I'm sure everyone else did too. They mentioned on air they have recieved tons of email regarding this. I'm sure they seen it.

    god damn droxford

    brilliant, absolutely brilliant!


    edit: on a side note though, it wasn't all that surprising that they did what they did in cutting you off/blowing you off even.

    expected of the fools that were on the air at the time.

    but the message was definitely clear

    Good job, drox! If you get one more chance, be sure to whip them good.

    I'm on a dial-up and it said it was an 1 hour 13 minute download. Can anyone re-cap a little. By all accounts Droxford's call deserves a Clutch Classic Moment where it belongs: here with us.

    Rockets.com is boring.

    E-mail that to them, and maybe they'll understand.

    I just listened to the call. Droxford, good call. I was impressed at Vandemeer's objectivity and insight. He did a very good job of crystallizing the issues and relaying them concisely. I've always thought he was a very good commentator and he did a great job here as well. Rich Lord on the other hand is a bozo and a dimwitted moron. He is living in a past era where public access to information was far less than it is today. He's getting his news from the 5:30 news with Tom Brokaw while the rest of us are getting it off Drudgereport and blogs in real time. The media has passed him by and he doesn't even know it. He's a dinosaur.
