Who is Rome covering for? xr4ti with the 'Rona

I'm guessing it's Alvie for two reasons.

1 - Doesn't seem like he's running the boards. The drops are just off a little. It's either Flight Deck or Ike, probably the Deck. I doubt that Choc would be able to do it at this point.

2 - If it was one of the other 3 then Rome would be killing them. He won't do that to Alvin because he knows how important that dude is to the show.

They're not showing any of the cameras that used to peer behind the glass and Rome is being super careful not to say anyone's name. Gotta be Alvie.

I think they are gonna stop showing the XR4Ti for a while. I have a feeling Rome wants to axe the "new guy" and wants to make it as un-awkward as possible.

But yea, the entire situation with this show is weird right now.

He let an "Alvie" slip this morning.
He said "Hey Alvie...errrr......unnamed member of the Xr4Ti"

He let an Alvie slip on Monday too.  Then said oooopps.  And smiled.  Was silly.

Ritt's answering phones, so Big Head and Ritt are probably running the show.

Tom and Alvie on the bench.

What gives you this feeling?  :popcorn

Roam barely mentions him, and Roam seems frustrated by the crappy tweets/emails/calls being passed through to him.

It would be nice for some of the Smackoff participants to call in from time to time

Yeah, that would be cool. Other than Paul's Dog who has called in since the Smackoff?

I think Choc is valued as a utility man so to speak, as he has experience in all phases: in his career he has run phones, he has run soundboards, he has booked guests, he has compiled audio, etc, so based on this I don't think Rome is looking to axe him.  Especially now since they have been running with the phone guy also handling the social media feed since Keith left.

However, Rome has already flat out stated that Tom is not that guy who is going to bring anything fun when asked to put the headset on, and to say that so early in his arrival is telling.  Tom's personality is a C which is exactly what the show doesn't want,  it wants an A or an F.

This was a very cogent response. Yea, Roam put Tom on the air once or twice, and it did not go well at all. He has not been on the air since.
You are very right about Tom's personality being a "C".
