790 The Ticket in Miami has some issues (none of which involved me going on the show last month). A few weeks back they got in some hot water because the ex-Dolphins Flagship ran a fake promo for a Dolphins Pregame Show that had the tagline "The Dolphins don't deserve a real pregame show. So we're giving them a fake one."
Well Jason Taylor wasn't happy about it, and has backed out of his weekly spot on the radio station. So what does 790 do? That's right.....they sue him......
Joel Feinberg, owner of the Ticket, said Thursday he has instructed his lawyer to file a breach-of-contract lawsuit against Jason Taylor after Taylor this week backed out of a deal to do a weekly radio show on the station.Feinberg also had this to say, ``It's funny stuff. People like it. We're a different station than sports stations in the past. We're edgy."
Ralph Stringer, who handles Taylor's broadcasting and marketing deals, said Taylor intended to do the show (5-6 p.m. Fridays) until he heard The Ticket was running a promo for its whimsical ''fake'' Dolphins pregame show. The promo says, among other things, that because the Dolphins haven't made the playoffs in five years, ``The Dolphins don't deserve a real pregame show. So we're giving them a fake one.''
Feinberg said the promo ''wasn't a shot at anybody,'' but Stringer said Taylor ''didn't feel, as a leader of the team in the locker room'' that he should appear on the station.
Ooooooooh edgy! Making fun of the local team because they haven't done so well as of late. That IS edgy and original. We just need to gather up this guy, the Mike Vick lawsuit guy, and the Suit Lawsuit Guy and just leave them on an island somewhere.
