Gary Allen on Business, Sunday, October 19, 2014 – Podcast Now Available

The Worst Article on the San Francisco Giants this Postseason?
Giants Orange October
You be the judge! I spend the first half of the program dissecting an article in Forbes Magazine about the San Francisco Giants. The gist of the article is the Giants are bad for World Series ratings because they are boring! I don’t think this article does a good or even a decent job of supporting the hypothesis. There are a number of factors contributing to lower ratings in recent years, but it is ludicrous to blame the Giants for the problem. The author in my opinion does a poor job of supporting his points about the business side of the story, and does a laughable job of explaining why the Giants are boring on the field.

In the second half of the program, I spend time chatting about the dangers of structured notes and why they are probably a bad investment for most people. Thanks again for listening to my program on KNBR 680 AM and I hope you enjoy the podcast.

  1. Gary, this was the first time I have ever felt bored with your show primarily due to the 30 minute segment dedicated to a sports writer article about the Giants that you did not agree with. It seemed you took a “one minute mention issue” and stretched it into 1/2 the show. This seemed even more off course when the markets were in total turbulence the prior week and would have provided a much more valuable use of time. I will continue to listen but wanted to provide constructive feedback.

    1. Mike, thanks for your feedback on the program this past weekend. Sorry that you were bored with the subject, but it was of interest to me because it was primarily an article on the business of sports and the local angle with the Giants. Don’t worry, we will spend some time talking about financial markets and other matters this weekend coming up. Mike, thanks for taking the time to write your comments and thank you for listening to the program. Have a great week!
