Until they start having a row, then it sounds like two dogs howling at the moon.

You've just got to take everything they say with a pinch of salt. It's those that bite and ring up at 50p a minute i laugh at.

Yep, but some on here clearly lack the ability do that.

Triggered by what, not listening to a radio station which asks the presenters to provide controversial comments they don't really believe in so that thick people will call in at their own expense to argue? Not really.
Is that how it works?
Thanks for enlightening me...I'll stop listening now that I know that.

I'm not trying to convince anyone to stop listening, it's no skin off my nose. I just find it baffling that anyone would want to, it's barrel-scraping, lowest-common-denominator rubbish.

Barrel-scraping, lowest common-denominator rubbish? You could be describing 95% of all radio these days, and the remaining 5% doesn't have any presenters - just music from a limited playlist and adverts. I'm far from an avid listener, but there are occasions where I can't listen to any more rubbish aimed at students or stay at home mums and want to listen to some sort of sporting chat while I'm driving and invariably Talksport is the only option - particularly at rush hour when 5Live is more focused current affairs which, for as long as we have May-bot in office this side of the Atlantic and Trump across the pond, is way more infuriating and depressing than even Adrian Durham can be!

Not to worry though folks - the Xmas DAB stations are now upon us so I can drive home to the sound of the Pogues or Slade instead.

I find it baffling how many people come in here with this sort of post as though they're the first person to discover this...as pointed out, its probably the easily triggered who can't bring themselves to listen to it.

To be fair this is a "let's all laugh at Talksport" thread so whether it's laughing at clubs being mugged off, laughing at presetners saying something funny or laughing at people thinking it's worth a listen they are all equally relevant in here surely?

I didn't say it isn't relevant.
Just pointing out that we all know how it works, just some of us are able to see through the obvious trolling and not get angry and switch it off, whilst some aren't.
I can admire the trolling for what it is, some of it is quite cleverly done, and I like listening to the angry ones who bite and ring up.
So when im being labelled an idiot by one of the easily triggered im going to respond no?

Is triggered a word you've just learned but don't fully understand yet? Triggered by what? The stupidity of the wilfully ignorant?

Whether you're in on their methods or not, it's still a pile of shit. Recognising that it's shit doesn't make it any better, it just makes it weirder that you'd listen to it.

No im pretty sure I understand it, pretty ironic that the word 'trigger' seems to have triggered you lol.
Best you just stay away from it mate, if it upsets you so much.

You don't really come across as someone who knows what triggered means based on your posts in this thread. If either of us seems angry I'd say it's you - if you don't want people suspecting you might be thick, stop listening to a radio station which is specifically aimed at thick people.

As has been mentioned, this is the laugh at Talksport thread - I would argue that the listeners are the most laughable thing about the whole shebang, isn't it fair enough to make that point?

FWIW I agree that most radio has gone downhill in the last few years, but going with Talksport on that basis is the equivalent of disliking the new flavour of Lucozade Orange and deciding to replace it with a refreshing glass of hot piss.

I get it, talksport upsets you, the nasty man says things you don't like to hear...I just like to laugh at the people like you who take it one step further and ring in.
