Sadlemyer Says Rumors About Rose Are Untrue

KFAB (1110 AM) Program Director Gary Sadlemyer reiterated to listeners Monday that a personal matter kept Jim Rose from handling the radio broadcast for Saturday's Nebraska-Kansas football game in Lawrence, Kan.

Sadlemyer said rumors he has heard about "the real reason" for Rose's absence are not true.

"I can only tell you, it's B.S. It's out there. It's on Mars," Sadlemyer said. "I'm not going to go on the radio and tell you what it is.

"The rumors say it has something to do with something he said on the radio, or in an interview (with the Omaha City Weekly) are simply not true.

"There's nothing sinister. Nobody's injured. Nobody's dead. You're going to hear speculation that it's his marriage. It's not that."

Greg Sharpe, a Kansas-based sports talk show host, handled Saturday's call of the game for the Husker Sports Network. Sharpe also hosted Coach Bill Callahan's weekly TV program, which aired Sunday night.

How quickly did word spread that Rose wasn't calling the game? KFAB morning radio personality Scott Voorhees said he was asked about Rose's absence while attending a wedding in Kansas City.

Husker-related message boards heated up with all kinds of speculation about Rose's absence.

Sadlemyer said he expects Rose to return to the station Tuesday. He said Rose told him Sunday needed another day to "deal with this thing."

"Things come up," he said. "And a thing came up. That's all."

I got a call Sunday night from a guy whose information I always trust.. He is connected to a booster at the program.. Very well connected..

Anyway this booster is also a sponsor of the Husker Games.. Big money. \
So when my buddy gets information it is on the money..

There were two meetings last week at a super secret Lincoln bar between 2 different advertisers. Both are very upset that Rose had a scratchy voice during the Texas game and didn't read their companies live copy with excitement.

They made the call and had Jim removed from the broadcast.

You can take that to the Pinnacle BANK!

Yeah, well...my uncle's cousin's half-brother's girlfriend who knows the friend of a friend who works at KFAB said it just isn't true.

Keep dreaming, 8:03 AM.

If talent got pulled every time some whiney-assed advertiser got mad over something, there would be no one left in radio. Put that in your bank and smoke it...

8:03... I love the sarcasm! You must have read some of the crap on husker message boards because that is exactly what they sound like.

Press conference today @ 4:00pm in Lincoln

I personally only listen when the game is not on tv. I started that trend with swain and continue with Rose. The thing that annoys we the most is when he interviews Callahan, he always says "we" when refering to the team, like he is a part of the team and/or staff. I think we have a guy going through little man syndrome here and he thinks because he is the radio guy, he is looked at as part of the team and like a member of the history of the team. To my knowledge, he never played at NU or even in high school if I remember. I would like to see Pavelka back, and Rosey can take Adrian "marbles in mouth" Fiala with him.

I'm glad you brought up the "we" in Jim Rose.

There's also a "we" running his mouth on Little Sports 590. It's our friend, Matt Perrault.

Listen to him carefully this week. He'll say "your team" when he talks about the Huskers to a caller. But when you start talking Creighton hoops, it's all about the "we did this" and "we did that."

Visit his blog and you'll see a picture of him celebrating the Red Sox win on the Rockies field. This kid needs to GROW UP.

Jim Rose is going through a tough time right now and he needs ALL our support, more now than ever before.

While we're all out there giving ALL our support to Jim Rose, perhaps we can also throw some support to the announcers that Rose helped throw under the bus to get to where he is today.

We could have a big get-together at Qwest Center. That should be big enough to hold all the people we are supposed to feel sorry for.

8:47... Are you sure there's a press conference today at 4:00? None of the stations have advertised it on their websites. What's the press conference regarding?

If only Matt Perrault would lose his voice....the world would be much better off....

I'll join the list of people who can't stomach listening to Boston Matt on 590. I gave him a chance when he got to town, but couldn't listen for long. Every time he talked about the Red Sox or the Patriots, it was "we" this and "us" that. Very annoying. Then he would bad-mouth Husker fans for the fanatical way they followed the football team, all the while he was gushing over his beloved Red Sox. Quite the little nasally(sp?)voiced hypocrite.

HEY! Stop hijacking this thread with talk over an insignificant - and soon to be unemployed sports talk host!

Let's get back to the topic at hand.....the bell has tolled for Pederson....time is ticking away for Callahan....and the bell will soon toll for Rose.

The Axis of Incompetence will soon be gone!

GBR!

Rose will not be returning. Can't say anymore as I would violate the trust of my sources but it's over. Gary and Roger can say all they want but it isn't going to change a thing.

Was I the only one that noticed that the day after Matt Perrault got tickets from Ticket Express for game 4 of the world series in Denver he spent an hour on the air the next day telling us all how he didnt think there was anything wrong with ticket scalpers and that he didnt think that the Qwest Center needed to change the way they make tickets available? Me thinks that Matt was stroking Ticket Express as payback for those tickets which he never did say how much he paid for them or if he got them for free. But yea Matt when on and on how ticket scalpers were a legitamate business and there was nothing wrong with them which is an insult to our intelligence as we all know those scalpers are dirty rotten crooks exploiting the public.

Matt Perrault IS an insult to listeners' intelligence. He is one piece of strong evidence that abortion should remain legal.

Hey 8:07PM... Mr Rose is on the KFAB Good Morning Show...

Not coming back? Maybe they haven't told him yet.

Anonymous said...

Guess those are the same sources that told him the sun was rising in the west, dogs love cats and Nancy Pelosi was becoming a Republican.

Good thing he's anonymous...his friends probably won't realize what a moron he is. Or maybe they DO...and they're just feeding him more lies.

Check out Sean's latest post. Looks like 4:19 and 4:29 need a helping of crow.

:-p

Ticket Express is a sponosor of Matt's show. Of course he strokes them in ways that are unfit to print in a family blog.

Anonymous said...

Why don't you idiots just stop listening to Perrault if you do not like him? Geeze...what a bunch of whiney cry babies...oh sorry...I forgot... Jeopardy question "What are bloggers?"

You all seem to know so much about what Matt puts on the air, so methinks thou dost protest far too much.

Hypocrites!
