In the NFL being a favorite doesn't alway mean you'll win. In the South Stands $10K season-long NFL wager-off the same is true. Scott Stafford has long been a favorite to take the contest down but two dark horses, both from Mile High Sports have moved ahead of Scott over the past few weeks. It's a three-horse race now as we head into Championship Sunday.

Will Silent Stan save 104.3 the Fan?

He owns the Avalanche. He owns the Nuggets (kind of), he owns the LA St Louis Rams, he owns Altitude Sports and Entertainment and now, if speculation holds true, "Silent" Stan Kroenke will soon own 104.3 the Fan.
The station became for sale when Entercom, who bought out Lincoln Financial Media, was forced by the FCC to divest one of it's FM signals in the Denver market. Entercom chose to divest the Fan presumably due to its overhead - which is naturally higher than that of a voice-tracked music station.

104.3 FM is anybody's to purchase and, if the purchaser were to decide to, the format of the station could easily be changed. Denver sports radio listeners might lose their favorite station. But if Kroenke Sports buys the station it will clearly remain a sports signal and continue to be the radio carrier of Avs and Nuggets games. The company is the ideal buyer for the Fan. So hopefully the rumors that KSE is the buyer are true.

According to Mark Knudson's blog, Kroenke Sports will pay $12M for the Fan and take over operations sometime in the next sixty days. This is fantastic news.  

"So long as number 18 is suiting up for the Denver Broncos the Denver Broncos will be built around Peyton Manning. The offense will be designed in his image and the defense will suffer for the tools Manning needs."

Well, it looks like the "let's get real" chapter in Peyton Manning's career in Denver has officially begun.

Darren "Dmac" McKee of 104.3 the Fan radio went live with WBZ1030 CBS radio in Boston yesterday and really let it fly concerning his feelings about number 18. Among other things, Dmac stated that Manning "miserably" failed the test of courage in the Colts game and that he has no friends on the team. Dmac also dropped this gem:

“It’s just he’s … did you really like the richest kid on your block who always had everything and always had to have everything his way and everything always went right for him and life just went fantastic for that rich kid? There’s just something unlikeable about that guy, even if he’s a great guy,” McKee said. “Manning, don’t you wish like a cement truck would fall on his head at some point?”

Now that's what I call keeping it real. Dmac is finally saying some of the same things that many Denver fans have been thinking but have been afraid to say. As long as Manning is part of the Broncos the Broncos will be all about Manning. Soon we will know if the disaster at Dove Valley was all about Manning, too.



"Peyton Manning and John Fox are a package. It would be senseless for the Broncos to fire Fox and hire a replacement for Manning's "one last run" at the playoffs. Also, it would be silly for the Broncos to retain John Fox if Manning announces his retirement."

"The agency is representing Verizon wireless and its "#WhosGonnaWin social media campaign. The idea is that participants will Tweet a total of twenty times during the playoffs using a mixture of their own words and some prescribed phrases. The company wants the Tweets to seem "organic" while meeting the specific objectives of the campaign."

"Beginning Monday, May 4th every Monday is Purple Monday at Coors Field. Everyone stupid enough to show up will get a lame-ass Purple Monday tee shirt and a "baseball bingo" card. I'm not exactly sure what baseball bingo is but if it's an excuse not to watch the game it can't be all bad."
