Some listeners, however, found it less enjoyable;
Ironhead is the classic troll. Rips everyone on the radio but when asked what he would do differently to improve the on-air product, he says “just be better.” That’s the kind of direction that gets you places.— pv (@pv1224) April 29, 2019
Well fine there; Here are some personnel suggestions for fixing poor foundering WEEI, so it can stop getting tripled up in the ratings worse than (pornographic actress name goes here – Search from work computer inadvisable), republished and repurposed with minor changes from the Archives of the Boston Sports Media Watch Message Board.

by Friend of BJBSJ Callahardfoul:
Here’s a look at names that would draw very good attention:
Bob Neumeier — He was loved by radio listeners back at 850. No question he’d return legitimacy to WEEI. He could name his time slot and it would do well.
Ron Borges — Say what you want about the anti-Belicheckisms, he knows football cold. He’s forgotten more things than the current beat guys know.
Doug Flutie – The guy is a lightning rod for little people issues. You want to call someone a midget, get ready for an argument.
Aaron Sele – The master of controversy. The guy could get Switzerland to take sides.
Mickey Curley – College hoops is as hot as ever, and this guy has absolutely nothing going on in his life whatsoever and is always available. He played hoops.
Nancy Kerrigan – Think you know all there is to know about women’s figure skating during the three year hiatus between Winter Olympics? Think again h-mo.
Bill Simmons – The guy knows the NBA like the back of another man’s arse. Don’t let the prepubescent confused twelve-year old at summer camp’s voice fool you, this guy loves writing about MTV.
Jody Reed – A virtual powderkeg of explosive inside information regarding the steroid era and how to avoid involvement in it at all costs, including his livelihood.
Ted Johnson – Mr. Concussion. One minute he is telling you how to read an offensive play out of the 3-4 defense, the next he’s pontificating on how the earth is spinning out of control towards the Sun.
