Steve Tasker, one of toughest listens [CBS contract not renewed!]

Recommended Posts

Tasker is a real task to listen to, he’s abysmal. Much worse than Donald Jones imo. Chris brown is by far the most informed, intelligent speaker and has his hand on the actual pulse of the team. I truly believe I would be better than Tasker. He’s all but chased me from OBD. It’s hard for me not to listen bc I’m not in the area and it’s easily accessible from the Bills app unlike the other radio shows. That being said, this is brought up in a new thread once every 2 months.

it's just not interesting with two homers.

 

the show needs an antagonist third person......mix it up a little.

 

example when the instigators have petey, rivet AND marty on together ....its lively and fun.

Peters is a natural on the medium.  Amazing how much better he is than anything the football side can put together.

So.... if there are a lot of posts complaining about Tasker, then MAYBE just maybe he isn't the broadcasting god you make him out to be? Everyone has a right to their opinion, and it doesn't make yours right and theirs wrong just because people post a lot about him. The way I see it, it follows the old adage if one person tells you you're drunk, and you feel fine, ignore him. If ten people tell you you're drunk, go lie down.

How many have told you that you over react like a moron?

Every Tasker interview starts with "Talk about....."     Literally the worst way to conduct an interview.

 

I love the show when Chris Brown or Joe B are co-hosting.

It could be worse... imagine this: "and today we have a special guest in the studio with us, Beth Mowens"...

Didn't he own the Henry's burger joint on Jefferson?

Only one I knew of was on Main and Dewey

I'd like a Chris Brown/Eric Wood show. 

 

And as soon as Fitz retires, WGR should have a radio contract in hand for him (though the national media will be clambering for him).

On the surface, no radio idea could excite me more then a show all about the Bills. These two are impossible to listen to. I don’t know who is worse but they are so boring that I can’t even listen. It’s sad. Listening to people talk about the Bills is something I usually love. These two guys are worse then watching paint dry.

Love that show.  Gives me the quick siesta I need to get me through the rest of the day.

Even more amazing is how Tasker despite his stammering, manages to keep his job as a sideline reporter for CBS.

I would think he must be working off notes for various players and situations, as well as a good stock of memories from his playing days.  As an extemporaneous speaker, Tasker is lacking, but so too are probably 80% of us in the general public.  Myself included.

I can’t believe the number of times Tasker doesn’t know what down it is - or mistakes one player for another, despite the name and number on their jersey

 

Particularly because those guys have ‘runners’ constantly handing them post-its with updated stats and everything that happened on the previous play.

He was a great player.  But he sucks on all media. If he was a sky writer he would suck.  Murph is no prize either.

Tasker is decent, as is Murph. 

 

His sideline reporting has improved drastically as well over the years. I'm glad to see a former Bill be successful. 

 

Its the guys on WGR I cant stand.

Steve - I get it,   back when Me Jim Andre and um um Th Th umm Thurman had all the um success that we had we didn't have, um , state of the um art training facilities like these guys have today. This place is really impressive.

Murph - (In background)  Hhhhh....Hhhhh.........Hhhhhhh

Steve - I mean I get it, I really do but the way these guys are taken care of from a training standpoint, it's a lot different than when me and um Jim and um our teams had as much success as um we did.  

Murph- Hhhhh.....Hhhhhhh .....    ...Hhhhhhhh

Steve - Times change , I get it , now they have these um..  Ummm. Cryogenic chambers that get down to like um -547 degrees.  

I get it, like guys like Star LOW TOO LOW LAY  can sit in these um..ya know Murph.. Um . chambers and rehab.  I mean I get it, If Me Jim and um um Andre had all this stuff maybe things would have been umm different.

Murph- Hhhhh....Hhhhhh....Hhhhhh

Yeah, he was one of my favorite players, but is quite annoying at times on One Bills Drive.

 

Plus, half the time he sounds like he has a mouthful of food.  Swallow it before you talk!

I kind of hesitate to write posts like this because I don't like to criticize someone that's giving an honest effort........but Steve Tasker is one of the worst radio hosts I've ever come across.  He stumbles and stammers his way through a 3 hour radio show almost every show.  His questions to guests are so all over the place that I sometimes feel bad for the guest having to try and navigate his ? and give a response.  I think the Buffalo Bills could do a lot better, and putting feelings aside, that's something they need to upgrade. 

 

I actually like that show quite a bit more when Murph is coupled with Chris Brown......I know they're both homers, but I just think Brown is much better at orating his points.

 

I've said this ever since he would guest host a few years back. When they announced he was the new co host I wanted to puke. He has some good stories, but he is a terrible talker. If you listen enough you get used to it, but he is brutal.
