Gary Radnich's BackAssward View on Becky Hammon He Took on KNBR--On KRON; At Least Darya Called Him Out




The morning he made it clear on his KNBR show he didn't think Becky Hammon should coach in the NBA for reasons that went out in the green stamps era, Gary Radnich said the same stupid stuff hours earlier on his "Gary's World" gig on KRON.


Darya Folsom, of all people, challenges him; (as best as Darya can do), we'll give her credit over the female yahoo at KNBR who choose to back down and do her best Marcia Brady.


The KRON charade on the video begins at 5: 20 and pretty much exposes Radnich for the old boot he is. And please, just listen to the patronizing shit, the old-fashioned crap you'd expect to hear from the hardware store clerk in Iowa--but realize this is a Bay Area broadcaster who has that backassward mentality.


Look, Radnich is entitled to his opinion. We don't have to beat him up because he does that quite admirably himself here. I'm just curious as to why some fairly prominent women sports journalists are silent on the matter. Maybe they don't want to rock the boat and take on a popular SF sports media figure. How sad, how hypocritical, we could go on and on but we'll leave it like it is and ponder the consequences.

  1. The guy who should be hosting a show with Tony Bruno? Prescient.

  2. It sounded like Gary was phoning in from bed. Compared to this, John Madden on KCBS is a ball of fire.

    It's too easy to beat up on Mr Radnich. He has stayed way beyond his use by date and now is reduced to recycling old Vegas stories and celebrity nonsense. The title of his morning bit with Darya was lifted from The World According to Wayne (Shannon), the late KRON personality.

  3. I have heard that Raddy had some connections with the late Woody Hayes and Bobby Knight. Evidently some of their charming ways rubbed off on him.

    1. Knight has actually been a mentor to Tara Vanderveer at Stanford. As a former hoops player, I think Vanderveer and Pat Summitt could do as well with men as women - and be just as tough.

    2. I agree. Vanderveer and Summitt are legendary coaches; well deserved Hall of Famers. Sadly, Summitt was diagnosed with Alzheimer's.

      Knight is also friendly with Tony LaRussa and Bill Parcells.

  4. For those of us keeping score. Is Détente with the bloated one officially over? At least your cease fire lasted longer than the Israeli-Palestinian one that lasted 1.5 hours...

  5. "I'm just curious as to why some fairly prominent women sports journalists are silent on the matter."

    There were also a lot of prominent women sports journalists who didn't say anything when Damon Bruce lost his mind. Maybe they want to be known by the quality of their writing rather than by being offended by every little thing, unlike a media blogger I know of.

  7. I meant to ask...but you wrote a few weeks ago "twice divorced Radnich",Was that a mistake? He only mentions one ex wife who decided to collect alimony for life " I wish she had moved on" he says.
    He also says " Since being an adult I've always had children"..considering his idea of marriage and woman seems so conservative..making children by different woman seems ..hypocritical.
    What it all comes down to with that guy? I quote his co -worker Weatherman Brian Van Aikan telling Radnich on KRON " I think,nobody loves you as much as you do"
    No truer words..

  8. Where are all the righteous female columnist over at the Chronicle? No where!
    Their silence is revealing.
    If someone from the Bay Area utters such archaic thought, it must be cool and accepted.
    Unfortunately Gary Radnich will get away with these statements and life will go on.

    1. BECAUSE, Radnich did not say anything that would merit such a response.

      Rich, time to move on. Much ado about nothing.

  9. I truly don't think Gary said anything particularly egregious, it's just another example of Rich trying to make something out of nothing. But I do think Darya is terrific.

  10. Rich, do you spend this much energy disagreeing with every opinion you come across or is this because it is Radnich?

  11. Radnich is a dinosaur. The only reason I heard his ridiculous rant is I had not yet changed over to Jim Rome on 1050. I stopped listening to his drivel years ago. He should be paired with Ralph Barbieri on a radio station in Siberia with no antenna.

  12. I find it funny...Rich is ripping KNBR (deservingly so) but ignore several of the "hosts" at The Game who are absolutely laughable (not in a good way). Rip Radnich all you want, but the bottom line is this...are people really going to switch over to listen to Haberbitch and Middlecrap? I don't think so. Amateur radio at its worst.

  13. Darya Folsom is sexy as hell. Otherwise, who cares?
