Rose Responds to Perrault, Justice

Big Sports 590 AM talk show hosts Matt Perrault and Travis Justice spent part of a show last week discussing former Nebraska football play-by-play announcer Jim Rose, claiming Rose wanted his job back.

Last November, with three games left in the Husker football season, Rose quit his job as play-by-play caller, a job he had done the previous six years. Rose said he was stepping down for personal reasons, including spending more time with his family. He continues to co-host the KFAB (1110 AM) morning show, as well as sell advertising for Pinnacle Sports, which has the rights to Huskers sports on the radio.

Perrault and Justice questioned Rose’s reasons for quitting his play-by-play job during last week’s show. An excerpt:

Perrault: There’s a rumor going around that Jim Rose is trying to get his job back.

Justice: I’ve heard that one.

Perrault: So it’s not surprising.

Justice: It doesn’t surprise me at all.

Perrault: What I’ve heard is that he wants his job back and he won’t give up the sales angle.

Justice: That’s true. … Jim protected himself by saying that he had anxiety problems and he missed his family and all that stuff. Which part of it may have been true. But I think in the end he thought he was going to get fired. And then he realized after he quit that he wasn’t going to get fired. Don’t forget, when Bo Pelini was hired he (Rose) gets down there and runs into the suite and wants to talk with Bo’s wife and Bo one-on-one. Jim and I get along all right; I don’t have a problem with Jim. But I think he jumped the gun on this one. He should have never quit in the first place.

Rose said this week that he was glad that he could provide fodder for Perrault’s and Justice’s show.

“I’m glad to be of service to those guys because they’re having trouble coming up with topics that people care about. If what they suggest is true then that would make everything that I said on the air back in November a big fat lie. And I can assure you, I have discussed returning to the broadcast booth with no one because it’s not my intention. If they were firing me, why would I continue to be on KFAB and why would I continue to work out here (Pinnacle)?”

As for rushing to talk with Bo Pelini’s wife, Rose said, “I wouldn’t know Mary Pat Pelini if she sat down in my lap.

“I think it’s hilarious that these guys have found nothing more insightful to talk about in the world of sports than the comings and goings of a former play-by-play announcer.

“I received over 3,000 e-mails from people all over the world thanking me for the job I did … Now, I don’t think that radio show (Perrault/Justice, 2-6 p.m. weekdays) has gotten 3,000 e-mails since it went on the air.

“I don’t care what they think. They don’t know what they’re talking about. And I’m a little bit offended that they are basically calling me a liar.

“I didn’t have to leave the job when I did. And I have no interest in returning.”

This reminds of Matty's favorite thing: to say 'YOU GUYS' when he doesn't want to be associated with something.

'YOU GUYS' did a great job buying up all those US swim trial tickets.

'YOU GUYS' need to complain to Fox 42 about treatment on American Idol.

But when it comes to Bluejay hoops, it's all about the WE to Matty. Unless they lose. Then it's DANA NEEDS TO (fill in the blank).

Perrault said he doesn't have a problem with Jim. Sounds like he does now!

What a bunch of freeking turds. Glad they put Perrault and Justice together...making the mound of crap on those airwaves even bigger when combined.

If someone at that station had any brains, they'd drop BOTH of them and go in a different direction.

Rarely do I hear anything GOOD about either or both of these guys. What a waste. I'd prefer 590 go with whatever Fox Sports Radio is putting on nationally at that 2-6pm time frame than these clowns!

Sounds more like "he said, she said". I don't trust any of the bunch; Rose included. He probably did try to get his position back for all we know. He seems the type to deny his failures.

But; that said, some of his comments ragarding Perrault and Justice were kind of amusing.

Anybody who makes Perrault & Travis Justice look like total fools is okay in my book.

Wait...I've just realized a flaw in my logic. Seeing how Perrault & Justice make fools of themselves at every turn...I am forced to view them in a favorable light.

Interesting.

I'm pretty close to University people and they say Rose has been nothing but class through this whole thing...not bothering people, not begging for goodies like KP did when he blew himself up.

Sounds to me like, maybe just maybe Rose was on the level.

Give the guy a break!

Didn't Matt almost get fired for reporting rumors that never shook out during the Peterson-Callahan firing?

He should put his money where his mouth is and tell us who told him all this stuff. At least the Weekly went right to the source to get Rose's side of the story.

I am listening to the big show right now and Matt said it goes Peterson-Callahan-Rose. I never would put Rose on the same level as those two. That's pushing it.

Anonymous said...

Maybe the reason P/J can't imagine what Rose did as truthful because they have no idea what hard work looks like.

Holy Crap, every time I turned on KFAB, Rose was on..morning, noon, night. He was doing TV shows and ribbon cuttings, even the PA at the basketball games for a few years.

The guy got burned out. It happens all the time.

I think what he did took balls and he should be congratulted for it.

Anonymous said...

I'm in the broadcast sales business here in Omaha and have to compete against the guy. Rose is very, very respected in this area. The guy busts it to get business but NEVER bad mouths other people and super serves his clients. He is very successful in sales and it's all HIM. I have no clue how the guy did the games and the on-air stuff without going bonkers.

If Matty and Trav were 10% as good on the air as Rose is on the streets......

Anonymous said...

I used to work at Pinnacle sports with Rose. He was AMAZING. None of us could figure out how he could keep up that pace and still do all the work. He would even go out with other sales people all the time and help THEM make sales.

The guy is deserves a medal....those dopes on the radio have no idea what a pro looks like.

Michael Carnes said...

I've had several opportunities to see Jim work in both capacities, and you'll be hard pressed to find someone who is as classy or works as hard in the entire Nebraska media circle than Jim Rose is.

Unfortunately, when you are incapable of bringing something relevant to the table, you have to resort to rumor and innuendo to fill time, and that is precisely what Perrault and Justice are doing with The (Allegedly) Big Show in this instance.

I would like to think the management of Journal Broadcast Group would not stand behind such third-rate broadcast "journalists" as Matt Perrault and Travis Justice, but evidently I'm wrong in assuming that.

Anonymous said...

I am no Jim Rose fan but Matt Perrault really needs to go. He hates everything about Nebraska other than Dana Altman. He thought Bo Pelini was a bad hire and is now trying to make up for it. I think he needs to move back to the East Coast since he is too ignorant to open his eyes and see the benefits of living out here. Travis can stay.

The closest he got to being fired was when Altman took the job at Arkansas and Peabrain started the rumor that Rasmussen was following him. From what I heard Peabrain has been groveling at Rasmussen's feet at every chance. I have heard that his mother erected a shrine to Raz in her basement back in Massachusetts to pray to the Bluejay Gods that he doesn't lose his job and move back in her basement.....

I prefer to listen to 1620 between 2 and 6pm. I used to listen to Perrault a year or two ago, but it got to be unbearable.

Question for those of you that listen to Perrault...can you verify for me if he ever has ANY UNL interviews? I ask this sincerely because I read somewhere (probably on here) that no one in the UNL athletic dept will even talk to him, but since I don't listen to him anymore, I don't know.

One thing I like about Unsportsmanlike Conduct is that they interview staff the various local colleges...such as Altman at Creighton, Kemp at UNO and various staff at UNL, among others that I can recall at the moment.

In other words, they spread it around and I like that. Probably a good reason why they're doing so well is that they cater to various fan bases and not just UNL sports fans.

Anonymous said...

Perhaps if Perrault catered to more than just the Creighton fan base AND stopped thumping his chest about HIS Red Sox and HIS Patriots, people might actually tune in more.

For a radio station that is supposed to be the home of the Royals and Chiefs, you'd hardly guess at it based on his show.

Just about all I listen to in Omaha is sports radio and KFAB now and then ever since my employer dropped the hammer on streaming, so I'll give my two cents on this. I really like ESPN's national shows (Herd and Tirico). I don't care for Rome much but will listen once in a while. Dan Patrick is obsessed with steroids and HGH and needs a co-host like he had with Rob Dibble.
Perrault really sucks. Can't stand him. But ever since 1620 went to four hours, they just keep pounding the same subject all afternoon (usually Husker football). They have some good interviews, but I'm usually done with them by 4:00. I switch over to 590 at 4:00 when Travis Justice comes in (or Tom Becka if he has something I'm interested in--not usually though). Travis is at least interesting and has a background in this market. Not bright, but interesting. And you never know when there will be fireworks between the two. Once I leave work at 5, I'm back to the satellite radio.

The fact is that this story is less than irrelevant and wouldn't even have been feature on here were it not for Sean Weide's ties to Journal Broadcast Group's employees. I know--Jim Minge posted this, but I'm sure it was at the behest of Mr. Weide. And that's fine. It's their blog.

The reason this such a non-story is because Big Sports 590 is so low-rated (tied for the lowest rated station in town!), and has such a small audience, especially from 2pm to 6pm, that most of the real world isn't even aware of this controversy.

But all of this makes for heated discussion on this forum and numerous comments, so I guess it is of interest to someone.

I'm sure it's been said somewhere before, but I thing Big Sports 590 has truly become Bull Sh*t 590 because of these two, especially Perrault.

"When in doubt, make something up!" should be his show tag line.

"Big names, Big games"

Well, aside from 2-6pm, that is!

Michael Carnes said...

I'm not going to say Jim Rose is without fault in this scenario, because he could have refuted the rumors without going to the "they haven't gotten 3,000 e-mails since they went on the air" card.

But Perrault and Justice are so desperate for listeners - despite Perrault's comments to the contrary on his show Thursday (which was spit-milk-through-your-nose, laughter-inducing unintentional comedy, BTW) that they will invent topics through rumor, innuendo and half-truths (Rasmussen leaving Creighton after Altman left for Arkansas, inability to get any Husker-related interviews unless they are FORMER players, etc.).

Perrault thinks he's got all these people listening to him, but the facts call bullshit on him. Their ratings are SIGNIFICANTLY lower than that of their cohorts at 1620. Bull Shit 590 is the lowest radio station in Omaha (and considering some of the crappy stations on the air right now, that is saying something). Perrault is nothing more than an outsider sucking up to one fan base while alienating several others, all of which are more local or regional (i.e. Royals, Chiefs, Huskers) than his beloved Boston trifecta. And, on top of that, he has undoubtedly the laziest and most egomaniacal talking bubblehead in all of Omaha TV as a sidekick.

A sports talk show host with half a brain and a modicum of class would not have started this nonsense to begin with, pathetic ratings be damned. For all this "experience" Perrault allegedly has in previous stops on his career path, it's become obvious that he's about half as good as he thinks he is and one-tenth as good as he says he is.

Journal Broadcast Group should be ashamed to have such third-rate talent as this representing itself in ANY market, regardless of location or size. Until changes are made, this is one consumer of broadcast media in Omaha that will be staying away from all JBG-related stations.

Why would Matt and Travis make this up? What do they have to gain?

Rose made a decision based on emotion when he quit. Plain and Simple... If he is such the commensate professional, why not finish out the 3 games??? We knew they weren't going to a bowl game. Rose's version of events don't hold water. Someone that passionate, how many books has he written on the "BIG RED"????, walks out with 3 games to go...

He wanted someone to ask him to stay... That didn't happen and it speaks volumes.

Matt and Travis' show is the lowest rated show in its time slot on the lowest rated station in Omaha and you're asking what they have to GAIN??? Seriously???

And in all honesty, what did they hope to accomplish by broadcasting this rumor, regardless of whether or not it is true? Is the sports scene in Nebraska that boring that they have to waste the better part of 2-3 segments on THAT?

There is such a thing as letting a sleeping dog lie. It's too bad Perrault is so desperate for listeners - and Justice is so hard up for viewers - that they would have to resort to picking such an insignificant topic to start a fight with. What a pair of zeros.

Anonymous said...

1620 is doing very well because, let's face it folks, they are a professional sports station that focus on all aspects of Nebraska sports, not just UNL; not just Creighton. They are respected by all colleges and show respect to all. This is why they get the interviews.

590 is more of a juvenile, college product that tends to be more of a pep rally for one school than another. This explains the ratings disparity. Most people would rather listen to the professionals rather than the novices. As it is; it is certainly time for Matt Perrault to go.

I wasn't certain about Rose at first; but after all the testaments I've heard, both inside and outside of this blog; the man is by far a class act and I hope he does not feel a need to continue responding to the cretins at 590.

It's not like KFAB vs. 1620 or 590. That would be kicking someone's ass. Even 2 ratings points 12+ isn't a big deal because of sample size of this market. But that's too technical for people on this blog. Plus, I have seen the book....1620 won in the afternoon, yes but not but a ton in every demo - especially with Men 18-34.

Getting back to the original topic... I'm certain Rose could identify Mary Pat because he was at the Dec. 2 press conference standing along one of the back walls in his faux NU letter jacket.

That's right, a fake letter jacket.

He also was one of the last people to wander out when it was all done. Two words - hanger-on. No idea why he needed to be there; I thought he was burned out. Maybe he thought somebody there would know the names of his kids' teachers.

Apparently the ego is bigger than ever. Thank goodness he no longer is broadcasting games. Perrault may be gay and Trav a tool, but (gulp, I can't believe I'm typing this), they're probably more right than anyone wants to admit.

After that comment about not being able to ID Mrs. Pelini, it's obvious he's side-stepping the truth, most likely not for the first time since the 2007 began.

1st 7:53 needs to pull his head out of Perrault's backside and get with reality. The bottom line is that 1620 is a better station with more reputable local talent that knows how to cater to all area fans, not a small group.

If 590 really wants to jack their ratings up and be a contender, they can start by dumping Perrault AND Justice in favor of local talent that can draw interest from all area sports fans, not just the 100 Creighton fans and 2-3 Boston sports teams fans living in their airspace.

Perrault is a moron, which is a real disservice to the real morons that are out there.

Speaking of Perrault and his dislike of Pelini.

If I remember correctly, the MONDAY BEFORE PELINI WAS HIRED. A local TV station reported that a source informed them that Pelini was to be the next Nebraska head football coach.

For the next 2 days, Perrault proceded to rip said TV station, by name on the air for being "Wrong"

I don't imagine Matt brought that up AFTER Pelini was made official.

The kid needs to learn to hold his peers' standards, to AT LEAST as high as his own. (TIC of course)

Most there know him for exactly what he is: a backstabber, concerned only about himself and egotistical. This is a man who lost the Wichita State TV gig--basketball and baseball--because he had the cajones to criticize a coach to his face, in front of his team on a bus.

He is an example of what is wrong in this business, and many sportscasters working as mentors utilize him as just that.

It wouldn't surprise me a bit he was asking for his gig back. It also doesn't surprise me that another below-par, egomanical backstabber is the one getting the p-b-p gig.

And yet three is still nothing to write home about. People still aren't tuning in in droves. Glad to see I have so much control over you that I can agitate your fragile little egos so easily. Psyche...!

7:14 -- it's not nearly as funny as the Pavlov-like response you have every time we run the 3-is-better-than-1 flag up your pole.

Please 9:06 AM, 8:59 AM and 8:50 AM, just let it go. We know that 1620 is beating 590. Superior products generally do. 1620 is the listener's choice. Leave it at that.

I think that says it all, 9:14 -- thanks.

-MP- Could this be "Matt Perrault"?

Probably...which explains why they are the lowest-rated sports talk show in Omaha.

Nah. It can't be Perrault. According to his blog, his management team doesn't let him use the internet.

Matt, if this is indeed true that mangement does not let you use the internet, I have to ask; isn't a blog part of the internet? Yet another untruth spread by the boys of 590.

3-It is both the first Fermat prime (22º + 1) and the first Mersenne prime (2² - 1), as well as the first lucky prime.

1620 is lucky to be 3

So that means 590 sucks so bad that they can't even beat luck? Is that what we've concluded here?

That would be an astute conclusion.

Matt's mom only lets him be on the internet one hour per night. Otherwise, he's stuck playing Dungeons and Dragons with his neighborhood friends.........

Wait a minute...

Really sad that this posting and the one above has more than 200 entries. Really, REALLY sad. C'mon boys...we need something else to sharpen our teeth on.

The Perrault is proud to announce that he is now a fourth level wizard and that he has found Zelda.

I'm not even sure what that means.

Hey Perrault guy...if you're gonna do this...do it for every blog on this page...

The Perrault is omnipresent. He is not only on every blog entry here, he is everywhere.

I would never use "class act" as a description for Jim Rose. Egotistical, self-centered, pompous, arrogant, annoying are, however just a few that fit his highness nicely. If you are not a client, a boss, or someone who possess' what he wants, then you are beneath him and are his lesser. Trust me, I have been around him enough to know.
