Whatever. As long as April Rose is still getting paid for the billboards I'm ok with it.

Nah. Probably one of Daley's relatives was involved; therefore, Daley didn't know a thing.

It keeps getting worse for North. I wouldn't wish this type of bad luck on anyone; even Mike.

I think this goes to show you a little about Mike North's intelligence. When he tried to convert his show on the Score from all sports, to all things news, he really gave new meaning to 'stupid.' Everybody is entitled to an opinion, but not everybody should be paid to express it. Go back to the hot dog stand, Mikey...

So, the breaking news section says the Hernandez guy was running a ponzi scheme funneling money to the company that owned Webio, and had declared bankruptcy in 2004, 2005, and 2006. Gee, you would think North would do some due diligence to see what type of person he was partnering up with.

I really wish people would actually read this article. There is something going on but no one has been charged and there have been no trials. It is not time to go an convict people before you know all the facts.

Also, get up to speed people. Mike North is off of the Score but he isn't off the air. He is part of the morning show on Comcast SportsNet. http://csnchicago.com/pages/monstersinthemorn...

What North does on air is his act. Off air, he is not always the loud mouth he is on air. Yes, he likes to be the center of attention but he had always taken care of those that he works with or needs a hand. Yes, he does have some character flaws but scheming is not one of them. He just happens to be an ordinary Chicago guy that was always in the right place at the right time. Please do not blame him for Hernandez's actions. I am sure that when it came down to it, North just felt like this was another venture that he would be in the right place at the right time. Except that is not the case this time. I feel for all the employees there. THey, including North, do not deserve to be caught up in this.

What many don't know is that there is something else linked to all of this. The family I was in for more than 26 years who are "MidWest Drug Lords" (Search on Clyde O'Connor)often showed up with tickets. Guess where these came from? What goes around, comes around.
