John Steigerwald, a long time Pittsburgh media figure for many years has called Pirates fans suckers for blindly supporting what has been a bad product for 16 going on 17 seasons. Gee, I wonder why some posters in here would not care for him? :D :D :D

Narrow-minded, unprofessional, overly-negative, annoying, insulting, arrogant

Is that enough reasons?

I might get skinned alive here, but, I don't care too much for Stan Savran.

Wasn’t Jose Bautista one of those prospects that Pirates fans were supposed to be excited about back in 2004 when he came here from the Mets in the Kris Benson trade? The Pirates traded him to Toronto on Thursday for a player to be put on waivers later.

Bautista joins a long list of “prospects” who lasted four years or less in a Pirates five-year rebuilding plan. But that’s all about to change. You know how I know? Because the Pirates, according to their owner, Bob Nutting, have “the single-best management team in baseball, maybe in all of sports.”
So, Pirates fans have that going for them. Even though, so far, there’s no indication the Pirates management team is any better than the Pittsburgh Riverhounds’ management team.

Thank you! I wasn't going to be the first to say it but he's only got 1 good call besides that Stan Savran stinks.

Maybe Staggy should stick to the sport he knows about... well, the sport that he thinks he knows about...

Greg Brown is the most annoying person ever. His HR calls are so contrived and ridiculous. He's the anti-Vin Scully and the anti-Christ.

I work at PNC Park and everyday I have to see the Rob Mackowiak grand slam to win the game. Brown's terrible call goes, "Long drive! Mack whack paddy whack give that dog a bone! Garrett Mackowiak your Dad just hit a game winning grand slam." Did we really need the "Mack what part"?

Or how about his "La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la Roche!" from last year. God I hate Greg Brown. When he comes on, I hit mute or switch to the away broadcast. (I have the package thank God.)
