Ok the guys carrying the football games have got to go. I know they don't make much money and you get what you pay for. However the bruchfield comment tonight was out of line and never should have been made.I have listened too these two guys for years. They are local guys and people just tolerate them. They have made fun of kids names schools ect. Ect. After tonight I have heard enough. The one who works full time at the radio station needs to go. Years of him ripping officials and talk about how good cheerleaders look and who is eating hot dogs and toast is enough. I am calling Food city Monday the main sponsor and asking them is this your idea of sportsmanship. These two have made fun of kids,players,coaches long enough. After tonights comments on the burchfield kid enough is enough. Its time for radio of Greenville to find someone else they barley pay to do these games. Maybe someone will just try to call the game as they see it vs trying to turn it into a comedy zone broadcast. With awful jokes and since of humor at the expense of everyone eles. Just call the game. Play per play. No need to act cute or try to make comments about how stupid players are or make fun of other things. Just call the game. Ron Metcalf is no john ward but at least he tells you what is going on. His color helps him vs turning it into a comedy time by dumb and dumber.

Yeah those two are jokes. Barry Carter couldn't coach how can he talk about football? I am not always a ghs fan but I would rather listen to a game than a comedy show. I would like to know what was said and Ron Metcalf needs to know it. They got rid of Marty Ricker because of his comments. I say get rid of them too

I am glad we have some high school sports coverage. However the past few years the broadcast have been almost listenable. Brian needs to remember this is not his show. People do not want to hear his jokes or smart azz remarks. I know its small town low pay radio. However our kids deserve to be talked up not down or not at all. The comments made last night are about the same as any other night. However the burchfield comments I think was made about cloudlands big kids in the past with that name. Not the burchfield kid that got stabbed. However I can see how that could have been taken that way. It goes to show Brian nor Berry have any idea what their saying or care about what they say. If the sponsors would take there ads off the radio something might get done. It could be worse I remember worse. When Brian and Jamie used to do it all you would hear is laughing. It got to the point where I just turn it off. Every game they rip on officials or talk about hot looking women in the stands. So as sad as Brian and Berry are at least we hear the score every now and then and who has a first down. Before we be lucky if they tell who won the game.

Marty got complaints about his calling at basketball games. He was to busy talking about the uniforms of the teams and why did they wear certain colors. Many parents were upset over it and called ron metcalf over it. Don't know if that was the main reason. Also heard he had porn on his computer at work. That's why they let him go from the gospel group

brian you are a joke. How do they keep him on the air. He does everything but carry the game. You are not tosh.o you are not funny. Could the Metcalfes get anyone else to cover the games. Ron may not be John ward but at least we know what the hell is going on. With brian all you here is his smart azz comments. I am done with them.

Who listens to any of the radio of greeneville stations anyway? If not for Wgrv they would been out of business long ago. However few a fewer are listening to Wgrv. You are right about Brian he is a great person. Just terrible at broadcasting games. You do get what u pay for. He makes very little there.

Brian could be better if they got rid of Barry Carter. He couldn't coach and he can't broadcast either. Maybe enough people call Ron Metcalf and complain they will get rid of him. They keep the bad ones and fire the good ones. . Cody. . Woody J..

Brian your a weak little man. All you do is think your cute and funny. Stop trying to be cute and funny and call the game. If you worked for comedy central it would be different. However you suck. So you are here in Greeneville. But at least try to do your job. Also stay away from the high school and college girls. You are married.

Yes they worked there. Then they got rid off them. I remembered one kid from south Greene working there in the mid 90s they let him go. He was great and full of energy. He went on to work in rogersville and then Bristol broadcasting company. I liked him and his personality. He could carry ball games and sale advertising. I have no idea what ever happened to him. I can't remember his name. All I remember is he was full of energy and a sweet kid. Oh well I am of subject. They need to replace Brian and a few others down there. No one listens to wikq or wsmg and the Wgrv crowd is dying out. They need some new blood and some energy at the station or else they will be gone in another five years.

That was probably Kenny Collins. He did a great job on the radio. I would always listen to him call rebel games.

I will not advertise anymore after this year. I listen to this week's game and I know it's small market radio but they have no class. The big dog is the neutered dog from now on.

I don't blame you. I refuse to listen to a county game because of them. I'll just wait and get the final score because nothing else makes sense from them. They have made football a joke. Wise up Ron and get rid of them
