TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY SPORTS RADIO SILENCE ENFORCED AGAINST ANY CRITICISM OF USWNT WORLD CUP VICTORY LAP PARADE OPPOSING PREZ TRUMP!!!



Across the dial, Kansas City sports radio talkers have CAREFULLY screened calls to prevent most discussion and any real criticism of the U.S. women's soccer team.

After KK had a 79-year broadcasting career canceled over some dumb-ass family drama comment flub, any remotely political conversation simply isn't worth the risk for cowtown radio dudes desperately hoping to emerge from this small market.

To wit . . .

KICK-ASS KANSAS CITY SPORTS TALK FANS COMPLAIN TO TKC ABOUT SPORTS RADIO SILENCE CENSORSHIP!!!

Apparently, the desperate need to talk trash on ladies soccer has fanboys pondering the 1st Amendment.

Whilst corporate radio is not government and listeners are free to take their biz elsewhere, the complaints are still relevant inasmuch as the USWNT victory has been politely ignored in Kansas City despite an EPIC weekend celebration that allegedly drew 10K screaming (drunk) fans into the downtown loop.

Here's a quick word from one of our favorite fanboys:

"It's just not fair that we've been told to limit any criticism of Megan Rapinoe and the women's team. They seem pretty adamant about their views and that's great. But the conversation is one sided and most Kansas City stations would rather avoid a discussion than risk anybody saying anything impolitic. That's not the Kansas City sports radio I know and love where listeners have freedom to talk about hot button issues and the real world because it's in the context of conversation about a game that unifies everyone. 

"Not anymore."

"There is no room for disagreement. It's sad because ultimately it means there's less time to discuss women's sports in general and that just drives people to embrace their own bubble and ignore the changing world instead of searching for opinions that might challenge their own and give them a new way of looking at things . . . "

It's not like there isn't a local angle here . . .

- Equal pay issues are akin to Kansas City's ongoing "Fight For $15" minimum wage debate that has both strident proponents and detractors with opposing data sets worth considering.

- Certainly both lady soccer supporters & critics might find common ground in celebrating Kelley O'Hara who picked up a flag that was dropped during the 2019 World Cup title celebration.

- And given that MSM acknowledges: "Lesbians Won The Women's World Cup" there's an opportunity to discuss the rise of LGBT athletes and their increasing acceptance.

Instead, the vast majority of Kansas City sports talk has refused to discuss any aspect of the American cultural milestone except to offer high praise for the P&L District Sunday booze fest and the hope for another round.

And so the conversation moves to social media wherein right-wing drunk uncles & progressive angry aunties can troll their friends, family & coworkers until they're unfriended or blocked whilst sports radio talkers sit around and wonder why fewer people are listening.

What would KK say?

He would say that his career wasn't 79 years you a$$h*le!

However, I would look forward to his comments that might have been something more interesting than all of the happy news on TV.

Megan Rapinoe for president? I'd rather see her play for Sporting KC. Team can't do any worse this year.

Champs said...

Don't need the grouch fest of angry men. I'm sure they'd much rather "analyze" and sniff every aspect of Patrick Mahomes and his jock.

Yes as Jim mentioned last Friday it's "the endless moral instruction and coercion, especially over “gender” issues and sexual boundary-stretching, the parades of freaks in dog masks, ball gags, and S & M get-ups, not to mention the utter insanity of the drag queen story hour, in which men perform as monstrous caricatures of women for impressionable six-year-olds. That is what it’s come to for the party of Franklin Roosevelt and Jack Kennedy."

Not really, you responded in less than 10 minutes so it looks like you've tuned in and a dad grandpa. Love the brown kids, they'll love you back!

Actually, I have to disagree here. This isn't about sports or soccer anymore. It's all political and today's parade was just a rally against President Trump. The people who support the women's team don't want to hear about stats or strategy, they're doing it because of the political virtue signaling and nothing else.

If they want equal pay, there's a simple way to prove it.

Play - and beat - the men.

Women generally don't listen to sports radio. There's no reason for them to cater to this audience. A brief mention is probably all it merits for these guys who don't really care about anything but Mahomes.

Who did they beat?

Do any of the women know anything about the game?

Just another women's rally. Glad it's too hot for the vag hats.

"Lesbians Won The Women's World Cup"

Possibly for the last time. The next headline will be "Trans Women Win World Cup."

KC sports media is almost at the bottom. I'm guessing there's going to be a lot of "restructuring" at 810 very soon and most other KC sports media outlets. They irreversibly bungled the Tyreek Hill think and have lost credibility with most of their listeners/readers. Now they will not allow any criticism of a women's team who supposedly wants to be treated as equals

KC media has shown an adversarial relationship with its audience and it's becoming clear to even those who don't follow too closely. This is why I celebrate their demise and ever subscriber who cancels

NOT gonna happen. In 2015, the USA Women's team was beaten by a boys team from Dallas. The boys were 15 years old.

This has ZERO to do with "Equal Pay". Most all Americans support Equal Pay for Equal Work. If the girls bring in enough in Ticket Receipts and Advertising then, they sure as hell, SHOULD get Equal Pay for Equal Performance.

Again, this is about politics, plain and simple. This is another opportunity for those "Woke" loudmouths to assault us all at 155 decibels on TV, in front of cameras, preening for the nodding heads and chin tuggers in the MSM.

Rapinoe's arrogant self regard, narcissism and solipsistic take on life, is, in no way unexpected. Colin Kaepernick makes an excellent living hating white people and America for NIKE and it looks like the same type of remuneration is possible for this self absorbed second rate, past it's prime wanna be apparatchik. It may as well cash in, it's all so Comme Il Faut now.

I like the irony, of the TIME headline, "You will not silence us."

No can possibly silence the power of the Progressive Megaphone, which, for a while longer, will be in the hands of this overweening fool and it's handlers in the MSM.

It's all your gonna hear, WE ARE VICTIMS!!!! TRUMP IS BAD!!!!

Maybe Lesbian unemployment isn't as great as everywhere else, but I doubt it, this moron makes a living playing a game.

Megan Rapinoe best enjoy her time in the spotlight this week because after it she will come face to face with reality.

Rapinoe has soccer skills for sure, but her entitled, flippant, and unpatriotic attitude is the epitome of first-world privilege. Beyond the embarrassing exercise in self-victimhood, Rapinoe’s personality is marred by her lack of appreciation for the country that has given her the chance to rise so far and achieve so much. She has turned the women’s historic World Cup win into a political pissing match, when it could have been a bipartisan moment of unity for the country. When asked, Rapinoe said, “I’m not going to the f---ing White House.” Plus, she has repeatedly knelt for the national anthem and said, “I’ll probably never put my hand over my heart. I’ll probably never sing the national anthem again.” After her World Cup victory, Rapinoe and a teammate dropped the American flag on the ground to pose for a photo opp. his truth has, unfortunately, been largely lost in the post-victory fanfare. Everyone should be happy the U.S. women’s team once again proved its excellence on the international stage, but we must not forget that Rapinoe is not someone worth celebrating.

She’s just a another celebrity, a lesbian icon, and a millionaire. But according to Rapinoe, she’s an oppressed victim of sexism, apparently. She has been at the forefront of the fake outrage and demands thats celebrity seems to cause in people like her. You can't be worth millions but cry about having to deal with oppression and get any extended support from fans. You're just another rich celebrity full of crap.

Typical "its all about me" mentality of these millennials; and add a dose of lgbtqetc. and it becomes worse.; it is now at a point where you cannot watch ANY news cast or listen to ANY radio station. And Trump didn't start this mess, the left is just engulfed in the 2016 election and cant get over it

In my day, attention-seeking dykes wrote books. The Marxist formula is nothing new and different on local am sports radio. I recall Soren Petro blurting out "what about white guilt ?" during the lovely days of the Ferguson riots. Of course, this is the same mancunt that declared that Peyton Hillis led the NFL in rushing --because of his coach.

Love what Megan is doing...let's take this to the extreme and ensure US domination in womens soccer. Start recruiting Trans women today. NOBODY on today's team will be on the team in the next world cup...or even on the third string.

Look, the left has to throw themselves a parade--let's make no mistake that this is just another Trump Derangement fest--because the possibility of their beating Trump is approaching zero.

It's partially because of people like Millionaire Millenial Megan here. Instead of making any effort at all to win back a fraction of the people the left has totally alienated with the woke frenzy, they can't drag the party left enough. Look at the debates. Just to keep up, every single Democrat of the five hundred that are running had to endorse free health care for illegal aliens. One doofus is actually campaigning in Mexico. And because the woke religion vocally singles out white men as the sole villain of history, the most electable candidate (creepy old Uncle Joe) is probably not going to be nominated. AOC and Pelosi are at war over the soul of the party in full view of voters, many of whom would like a non-Trump platform that doesn't look like it's been produced by a brain damaged Che Guevara.

And this team? From their nauseating obsession with themselves to their open desecration of the flag and what it stands for to their horrifying poor sportsmanship--this bunch is a clueless national embarrassment.

Enjoy the parade, girls. The one that Trump will have when he's reelected will be much, much bigger.

And he'll have you to thank for it.

Hypocrite.

Hating Der Fuhrer, & acknowledging that he is an illegitimate President, is patriotism.

Chuck is right. This is what Rush said today.

---So here we have the captain of the American women’s soccer team reluctant to sing the national anthem. Do you know what I think this babe may be angling for? Kaepernick. She wants a Kaepernick deal with Nike. Damn straight. She’s angling for a Kaepernick. She’s showing Nike she can be just as anti-American as Kaepernick. Give me a chance. Let me do the LGBTQ angle of Kaepernick.

Harper lee has misinterpreted any comment made by Petro about Ferguson. "White guilt" means the kind of action or non action against any black misbehavior that excuses black misbehavior. If Petro mentioned WG it was because he saw Ferguson as just another example of the establishment looking the other way in an attempt to make reparations for a strangely unsettling feeling that we have to let black folks walk down the middle of the street with their middle finger in the air blocking traffic after they robbed a convenience store then attack the cop that has to shoot them when they resist, inasmuch as they choke and grab the wacist ossifers gun. Sorensen is no mancunt. He will only unwillingly hint at what he feels, cuz to do more makes for bad sports talk, and his shit is good, unlike the asshats on 610 who sound like the IQ 89 morons in the corner of the MU student union planning their next protest.

That team only had 4 (four) gay women on it.

Women are paid more and Megan is a liar:
The Women’s World Cup brought in almost $73 million, of which the players got 13%. The 2010 men’s World Cup in South Africa made almost $4 billion, of which 9% went to the players.
So women make 4% more based on revenue.
Men should be outraged!

This narcissistic soccer team is an embarrassment to the U.S. I read that other World Cup women team members comment what bad sportsmanship this team exhibited on the field. After hearing their profane, disrespectful comments towards our country, our flag that many combat veterans died for, and our elected President, I would have to agree with the other World Cup team's observation of our women's soccer team.

I don't know why working class African Americans, Hispanics, Asians and Whites support the far left liberals and Democratic leadership like Rapinoe who grew up with a silver spoon in their mouth and want to take workers earnings via high income taxes and give to illegal aliens. Illegal Aliens drive down wages and consume more of our tax dollars that should be going to U.S. born citizen and legal U.S. Citizen immigrants. Remember DEMOCRATS raised your property taxes 25% this year.
