    I didn't read this suit so I can't comment on it but it is extremely hard to sue someone for an unpopular opinion and/or because someone was a jerk online and win.

    With all that said, people threaten to sue BGP all the time. It goes with the turf.

    In general terms, if anyone out there is thinking about suing anyone for any reason you better talk to more than one lawyer and be damn sure you know exactly what you are doing and there is a consensus among the legal minds involved that it is the proper course of action.

    I like KSR and Matt Jones, I overlook his Liberal Ideology because we are both UK fans die hard, and hate Louisville.

    I love KSR. My job has a lot of windshield time. Sportstalk radio helps with that. Where else are you going to get 2 hours of talk about UK basketball each day. Even in the offseason the non-sports topics are pretty entertaining as well. If I want to hear non stop NFL talk, all day, every day, I can turn it to any other sports show.

    On a positive if he really has a lawsuit against a KY company maybe that means he won't be allowed to officiate any UK games this season.

    Jones gets prime air time because his ratings are outstanding.

    Getting on someone, that you don't know personally, so much so that they block you on Twitter, sounds a lot like what you described in your last sentence to me.

    And that’s fine. I won’t lose sleep over it.

    They visited the Sag Hollow Golf Club in Booneville for their show back in August. We had a full house for the show. He interviewed our 97 year old mayor, Charles E. Long, for his "Hey Kentucky" TV show. The mayor has been in office since 1958, the longest serving mayor in US history.
    Mayor Long also had UK basketball tickets since 1950 but had to stop going to the games last year due to fear of falling.
