      Him naming the company Omaha Productions is fantastic.

      Anson Carter is implying Russo of something not very good. Listen to the very end.

      Guy makes a terrible take regarding the Wild’s depth and ability after the Winter Classic, taking time to particularly make fun of reporters (doesn’t name Russo in particular but it’s clear who he is referring to) and gets corrected in a mostly respectful tweet by Russo saying the team went like 9-0-1 after that game while missing as many as 8-9 guys per game. So a week later he goes on TV and does this.

      This is going to get ugly.

      Not much of a fan of Russo, but I hope he absolutely buries Carter over this nonsense. What a POS.

      Absolutely hilarious that in the middle of Carter’s garbage about “we don’t know what we’re talking about” Gretzky brings up “that kid in Calgary ” because he has no idea who Jacob Markstrom is.

      I don’t care if he doesn’t know a single player in the league, it’s better to have the Great One talking about hockey than not.

      I know TNT wants to bring the same unscripted success that the basketball studio show has to hockey, but holy cow. Carter needs to realize that this isn’t doing rink side reporting for Notre Dame Hockey anymore and when he has a “hot take” about a team, he is going to get pushback. He either needs to grow thicker skin or ignore twitter since it appears he can’t handle it when someone disagrees with him. I hope he makes a public apology to Russo, but I doubt it will happen. I heard Russo on Mr Smugs show today and he really didn’t want to talk about it too much other than he has gotten a lot of support from others today and told his Mom not to enter the fray.

        I saw people tweeting that they were looking forward to Russo’s response, yeah no. Russo has absolutely nothing to gain from commenting. Carter made himself look like a fool, don’t interrupt him.

        Totally agree. Russo might be the most connected NHL beat writer. My bet is Carter is getting inundated with calls/texts defending Russo.

        From scrolling through Twitter, just about every major hockey writer/analyst has come to Russo’s defense. I’m sure he greatly appreciated them having his back.

        Ridiculous that they had to though.

          Yes, unless he has some evidence, this is very bad.

          Yes. Yes he is.

          For further evidence, note the final sentence before break: “Sounds all white to me.”

          Whether you like Michael Russo’s work or not, he absolutely doesn’t deserve this.

          Pretty much, yeah. Sorry, Mr Carter, Russo called you out because you were demonstrably wrong, not because of your skin color.

            As a black kid playing hockey, I’m sure Anson Carter was subject to the kind of horrific insults we can only imagine so I don’t blame him for having his guard up. That said, he couldn’t have handled this any worse. I’m interested to hear his follow up because this isn’t going away until he addresses it.

            Tocchet bailed and McHugh tried to save him. Gretzky looked more comfortable August 9th 1988.

            Nice to see two people work out a difficult situation together, forgive, understand, and move on. Why can’t more folks do this? And hopefully the Twitterverse will let it go too. Kudos to them for acting like adults. Hopefully sets a good example for others.

            I would imagine TNT will ask Anson to apologize for his comments next time he’s on air (at least I hope they do). But I’m glad they worked it out. I have mostly enjoyed the TNT coverage and like Anson Carter on TV but this was an extraordinarily bad look for him and the network.

            I wonder if he means that Russo basically gave Carter an out by those 3 tweets. A lot lesser people would have savaged Carter but Russo rose above and has likely calmed things down.

            Carter was wrong here, he should’ve dropped it when Gretzky was trying to change the subject. And kudos to Russo for the way he handled himself. Too many of these talking heads on tv and radio think they are some kind of Nostradamus in their field. They think they can run their mouths with no consequences.

            Russo didn’t apologize publicly, he just said that he and Carter apologized to each other, so I don’t anticipate an apology on TNT from Carter. Russo literally had nothing to apologize for, but good for him for taking the high road here. Sometimes you just admit you’re wrong even when you’re not, so everyone can just move on. Everyone saw what happened, and it was nice to see the outpouring of support publicly on Twitter. I’m confident the support he received from those “in the game” wasn’t all from white people. Russo’s a great dude who puts up with a lot of s*** because of his job and following; I’m always baffled by folks who say they don’t like him, and can only assume they’ve never met him in person.

            Re: Russo

            I have a very good friend who is in business with his son & son Bill is a buddy with Russo. I have joined the 2 of them at Hells Kitchen when Russo & Souhan did their podcast or something from there. Russo would come over and chat at intervals. Seemed like a authentic decent human being.

              Are we to read into the capitalized words that “TOGETHER”means Russo has some blame to take and “AND” means part of Anson’s issue with Russo comes from statements/actions behinds the scenes?

              I still don’t like how Anson insinuates Russo is racist in such a public way without giving any context or background. That’s quite the bomb to drop on someone’s career/reputation based on the evidence provided.

              When Russo was on with Barrerio the other day he implied that Anson took offense to what he wrote because it made him sound lazy and that may have been improperly construed as having a racist tone. Russo could have done a better job calling him out without any of that potential undercurrent. But, I still think he had nothing to apologize for and Carter did.

              Edit– Scooby beat me to it.

              The only other time I have heard Russo talk about this besides PA the day after, was on Bumper to Bumper. Russo said that Carter took his comment that he doesn’t watch very many Wild games as meaning he was lazy and racist. Then the Wild fans piled on and Russo thinks that is what also put this over the top. Russo said he heard from some of the guys on the panel that night as well. But, he hopes TNT will make him apologize on air the next time he is on.

              It is from the February 11th Bumper to Bumper show, hour 2. It starts to talk about around the 17:30 mark. It is worth a listen.

              Thank you. I’ll listen. I wouldn’t expect Anson to be type of guy that would make that accusation without something behind it and when it comes to race discussions there is usually an aspect that is obvious to POC that most of us miss.

              I wouldn’t think twice to point out to my kid that he is being lazy but I can see how Anson may take that same comment from someone like me and think that it is racist.

              That said I would look at Russo’s comment as “I see more Wild games because I cover this team whereas you don’t because you cover all of the NHL.” But obviously it felt like a lazy call out to Anson. Interesting. Something to learn on both sides. Too bad it blew up publicly.

                Pretty much spot on. It’s the whole impact v intent issue. The impact of the message hits different for a POC, especially one that has dealt with some truly vile stuff in their career. My initial reaction was that it was completely ludicrous, but when I noticed quite a few POC understanding where Anson was coming from I slowed my role and listened.

                I still don’t agree with going in on it on live tv, but if they’ve had a chat and Russo is moving on so am I.

                    From what got from the podcast, Russo emailed TNT about this issue and asked for a public apology and asked why it hasn’t happened yet. What he got back was a corporate “cut and paste” response. He was not happy about their response, called it shameful and has lost all respect for the way the network has handled it. He said that after being called a racist on national tv, he deserves an apology and is worried that if it was someone who didn’t have the track record and respect he has, it could have been career ending. He said he and Carter are good and would love to sit down in person with him for a beer to continue to talk about it. It was a good discussion among all the people on the podcast. Said Dumba went out of his way to talk to him and that really made him feel better.

                      It does put them in a sticky situation to ask Anson to apologize on air. I would guess it opens them up to a whole bunch of lawsuits from current and former minority employees if any of them have felt unsupported in similar situations.

                      Anyone with a lawyer would do the same. Leave Russo to deal with it.

                        I’m one of the last to talk, being that I got banned for a term… though I’m surprised it didn’t happen sooner this week. He was dangling the carrot ever since the Super Bowl halftime posts.

                        The rules are pretty simple here and Jup and the mods give us a lot of leeway, until you shoot yourself in the foot. IMO most, if not all, people I’ve seen get banned here walk straight over the line by themselves with no help. The number of times I’ve deleted a post before I’ve clicked on submit numbers in the thousands probably. There is no need to escalate any negative situation here for any reason.

                        My 2 cents…

                          Given PA’s propensity for ignoring real time updates I could see him doing the Wild going something like this:

                          Quote:

                          “Foligno carries the puck into the zone, drops a pass for Parise easy skeezy, who hits Kaprizov buzzing down the right side, shot scoredowwwwn!! That’s the Wild’s first goal of the game and Minnesota now leads 2 nothing. That makes Minnesota 1 for 3 on the power play as they continue to dominate the NBA 5 on 5. Puck will drop with 7 minutes left in the 1st period. Coming up next in the 2nd intermission we’ve got Lou Nanne on the vox so don’t miss out hearing from the godfather of Minnesota hockey”

                          I agree with you 99% of the time, it’s like people think having very high expectations and being disappointed when they aren’t met means we suck as fans and human beings, it’s tough not be negative about any MN sports but at least gopher hockey is the one program/team that deserves and has earned those insanely high expectations. Being negative about gopher hockey makes people think your entire life is like that.

                          As far as Dave Schwartz goes, I’m not totally convinced he made the move because he didn’t get the sports director job. This Wild gig may have been brewing for a while. Also, he may have liked working weekends as his wife is a news director during the week. I’m going to bet the Wild job has a pretty flexible schedule, especially during the off season
