Former Chicago Bears
wide receiver and current ESPN 1000 midday co-host Tom Waddle might be leaving WFLD Fox 32 for ABC 7. He would potentially serve as the station’s Bears
expert. That’s what Robert Feder, long time media
critic formerly of the Chicago Sun-Times
and Time Out Chicago,
reported via his social media
Tom Waddle did respond through Twitter.
Take a look at this exchange between Waddle and Feder...
I was on a conference call with Mike Mayock from the NFL
Network a couple days ago. Mike Mayock is an NFL
draft expert and former defensive back. He played safety for Boston College and the New York Giants. He's a draft guru today. For a mock draft nerd like myself, I anticipated nothing but sheer awesomeness for this conference call.
Unfortunately, through no fault of Mayock, the experience fell well short of expectations.
Before we started, the NFL Network subjected us to a stupid (but thankfully brief) infomercial about some new programming. And since we were a captive audience waiting for Mike Mayock, the network was hoping we'd give their show some free publicity afterward.
We all get bombarded by ads and product placement. I just never thought I'd get it on a conference call.
There were over 100 other media
members on this call so I wasn't able to get any Bears
or local college football
prospects questions in. Then again, aside from ND, there are no relevant local collegiate prospects in this draft.
I listened for an hour and a half, but then hung up, despite the fact that Mayock was still answering questions. This fact will shock most of my readers, but I do actually have a life. And I have things to do some times. There are actual moments when I am disconnected from a computer, smartphone, television, radio etc.
However, I was around to hear Mike Mayock discuss one topic of local interest.
