Dolphins pull plug on Brandon Marshall's appearance with Sid Rosenberg

Our friend Sid Rosenberg surely is a happy man today.

Why, you ask?  Because he finagled his name into the top headline on PFT.  (Yes, it’s a slow news day.)  And because we’ve mentioned his name in the first line of the accompanying story.

You see, Sid loves him some Sid.  He’ll explain that he’s insecure or whatever, but the fact remains that Sid Rosenberg needs to see the name Sid Rosenberg in print, and to hear the name Sid Rosenberg spoken out loud, even if followed by the phrase “is a douchebag.”

Sid’s name has migrated onto the page today because he had planned, reluctantly, to interview Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall, who has been making the rounds to publicize a youth football camp at the team’s facility.  Sid and I discussed the question of whether he should go through with the interview during my Monday afternoon visit to his show, and he eventually decided to do it.

First, the spot was bumped from Tuesday to Wednesday.  Then, the spot was bumped altogether.

Sid says that Marshall’s people said the Dolphins called and said they’d been listening to Sid’s show and the Dolphins suggested that Marshall shouldn’t go through with it.  The problem?  Sid planned to grill Marshall like a foil-wrapped trout laid on a bed of burning charcoal. 

So Sid Rosenberg lost this one. 

Or did he?

    You call this a story? More like a shameless plug.

  5. Ravenmuscle says: Jun 23, 2010 4:48 PM

    Is Sid related to Isaac Kappleman, Hyman Schmolivitz, or Jacob Sapperstein?

  6. PFFFFT says: Jun 23, 2010 4:50 PM

    I never listen to Sid Rosenberg. I applaud the Dolphins for their decision.

    What does it take to get … “HawgNSonsTV” in a headline?

    another boring, pointless, aimless story by or about Sid the Kid…Bring back Neil Rogers QAM!!!!!

  10. megatron81 says: Jun 23, 2010 4:57 PM

    Marshall, one of the most gifted athletes in the league, wishes that he had half of the god given talent of Megatron.

  11. NYMets says: Jun 23, 2010 4:58 PM

    Florio — How come when I put the word douchebag in my posts they get deleted and when you put in in your story it’s OK?
    Naturally, the Dolphins are afraid on the field and they are afraid on the airwaves. They know El Sid will get Marshall to put his foot in his mouth. But who cares about a receiver on a 5 or 6 win team?

  12. _ROCKSTAR_ says: Jun 23, 2010 4:58 PM

    Onto is a word… try google sometime.

  13. texasPHINSfan says: Jun 23, 2010 4:58 PM

    This sounds like a plug by PFT for Rosenberg…. whom, I might add I’ve listened to, and think is a moron.
    Dolphins were smart here – not because of risk with Marshall, just because Sid doesn’t deserve the attention. Thanks PFT for giving it to him anyway :rolleyes:

  14. bad asset says: Jun 23, 2010 4:58 PM

    Any story that embodies the term “douchebag” is a worthy read.

  15. Yatoooooo says: Jun 23, 2010 4:59 PM

    Sid Rosenberg is a douchebag.

  16. Ilovefoolsball says: Jun 23, 2010 5:01 PM

    This is an amazing story. I really hope that PFT follows up on this obvious cover up by the Dolphins.
    Word on the street is that Marshall has inside information about the gusher in the gulf of mexico and was going to divulge it on the sid show. Florio, do your best Anderson Cooper impression of a journalist and find out what Marshall knows. Miami is a beach city so this is vital information.
    If Marshall has the key to plugging the hole and the Dolphins aren’t letting him talk, Obama is going to kick some water mammalian ass.

  17. realitypolice says: Jun 23, 2010 5:02 PM

    What the hell? Are you actually posting this from happy hour? Time to count the swizzle sticks on your bar napkin, Florio.
    Maybe the Dolphins suggested that Marshall cancel the spot because Rosenberg is one of those wind bag radio a**holes who rants and raves during interviews, asks loaded questions and then screams at the interviewee before they even get a chance to give a full answer.
    I love the part about Rosenberg “reluctantly” agreeing to interview Marshall. I don’t care what he tells you in bed, Florio, Rosenberg would crawl through broken glass for the opportunity to look like a hot shot by verbally berating (um….interviewing) any local celeb. This two bit, drug-addled New York exile, who couldn’t even hold his place on Miami’s real sports radio station, makes Dan LebRetard look like Dan Rather.

  18. KD says: Jun 23, 2010 5:02 PM

    Isn’t Sidiot a crackhead?

  19. Drat says: Jun 23, 2010 5:02 PM

    Foil. trout. OK. You know, Florio, you don’t have to say these things about yourself. Not required.

  20. Finfan says: Jun 23, 2010 5:03 PM

    Cancer can cause many heartaches but it has never been so cruel as when it attacked Jim Mandich and inflicted silly Sid Rosenburg on South Florida. Please pray for Jim’s speedy recovery and return.

  21. Chad Anderson says: Jun 23, 2010 5:04 PM

    Who is Sid Rosenberg? Columnist? Radio guy? Blogger? Why should I care who he is?

  22. mama tried says: Jun 23, 2010 5:04 PM

    And this makes any sense how?!?!?!?!?!??!!?
    What a waste of web space!

    Sid is about due for another cocaine relapse that got him kicked off IMUS.

    Fixed your statement for you.

    im not a fins fan but i am in south florida and this is a great move keep all your players away from sid hes a bum

  28. Shmendal says: Jun 23, 2010 5:34 PM

    sid isnt even the best south florida radio show host in that time slot!

  29. SomeFans says: Jun 23, 2010 5:44 PM

    Sid is a loser and loud mouth obnoxious ny’er. How he landed on Miami radio is beyond belief.
    All his sthick is about “self-promotion” and he’s dreadful. He is the typical low class jet fan type…other than he roots for the G-men. Even he can’t stand the jet trolls.

    Naw I think Megatron had it right he basically wishes he is as talented as Megatron

    “Florio — How come when I put the word douchebag in my posts they get deleted and when you put in in your story it’s OK?”
    Surprised any of your posts get through metblows. Same lame drivel every day. Florio controls the blog- you control little.

    Not going to post it Mike? :)
    Wuss. lol

  33. william sizemore says: Jun 23, 2010 5:50 PM

    A 5 or 6 win team, seems like the Fins will win 2 against the New Jersey JETS, and if they play against the New Jersey Giants it would be 3 wins. I just wish that the New York folks would stay where they love every thing, and that includes the New Jersey Football teams, how in Hell did jersey let these idiots in there state? Bill

    Must be a real ego circle-jerk when you and Sid get together, Florio.

  36. THE GLARE says: Jun 23, 2010 6:17 PM

    Sid is a has been or never been New York sports talk show host. He is bitter that he cannot get a job in the New York market, so he pines about New York Mets and Giants on his Miami show.
    He hates Miami. If he would get a job in New York the minute he is on the air he would bash Miami,(not that he is not doing that now).
    He needs to go back to doing coke and get off the air. No one likes him. The show’s staff hates him.

  37. j.e.t.s. suck suck suck says: Jun 23, 2010 6:24 PM

    @nymets…
    5-6 wins???
    Looks like the imploding jets will be swept by a 5-6 win team.
    I love technology, I’m dropping the jets off at the pool right now as I post this. Time to wipe my Rex and get back to work.
    OUT

    “Must be a real ego circle-jerk when you and Sid get together, Florio. ”
    Oh lord, is it ever… There is definitely some sexual tension between the two as well.

    So who is the big story in this piece of work?
    The Reporters……Boring stuff. Well ok Florio you get a break it’s off season.

  43. myrek2008 says: Jun 23, 2010 7:31 PM

    One way to loose listeners. First Randy doesen’t want to talk to him, now Marshall.
    Do not blame them. He is terrible!! NYC lover pretending to be local.

    They are 2 of the best in the league who would dominate in any scheme. Hard to say 1 is better than the other.
    Best WR’s imo:
    1 Larry Fitzgerald
    2 Andre Johnson
    3a Brandon Marshall
    3b Calvin Johnson
    5 Randy Moss (don’t think he will be in top 5 next year, age has to start showing more)

    Bill S — FYI “everything” is one word. And there the way you used it is “their”. How does the window taste in the little yellow school bus that brings you to school?

    Sid Rosenburg is half retarded.

  47. Patssuckmyleftnut says: Jun 23, 2010 9:32 PM

    Say Goodbye Sid!!! YOU SUCK!!!! Obnoxious overofficious jerk!! People in Miami don’t want to hear about New York especially the red headed stepchildren of sports in New York in the METS and really the JETS!!!! JETS WILL COLLAPSE!!!!! MARK IT DOWN ROSENBERG!!!

  48. Mean and Nasty says: Jun 23, 2010 9:39 PM

    @ RUGGERLAD
    Hard to argue with that list of yours, but despite his lack of height i’d take Reggie Wayne over Moss. Hes been a beast his whole career, and he never takes plays off or pouts like that premadonna Randy
    Megatron81 is right though (more often than not hes right)…Calvin is an absolute machine that would eat turds like Marshall for breakfast!!

  49. NYMets says: Jun 23, 2010 9:43 PM

    Ron — Out of respect for your mother I choose not to respond.

  50. HC says: Jun 23, 2010 10:36 PM

    Why would anybody listen to Rosenberg, much less agree to be interviewed by him? A sharp stick in the eye is preferable.

  51. Marino13 says: Jun 23, 2010 10:39 PM

    NYMets – its amazing how someone can be such a consistant jerk-off but u fit that mold perfectly. I cant think of a bigger asshole……congrats my man you win that one everytime!!

  52. rbais2 says: Jun 24, 2010 2:35 AM

    Does that mean WQAM could pull the plug on Rosenberg?
    Well, I’m just saying because a person’s show sucks when “everyone” who is an interviewee on Sid’s show is his “dear friend” while 90% of them don’t know him or think he’s an idiot; Bill Parcells is called a genius when his last three teams never reached a Super Bowl appearance and doesn’t want “problem children” or “thugs” and let’s 4 recently arrested athletes are still employed, hates Philly because they treated him badly after he wore a Lawrence Taylor jersey when no one should wear opposing divisional rival gear anywhere, hates diva wide receivers when he pressures Florio into promoting him, his show, and dumb book out to be the greatest things ever when he and the latter two suck, and wants to turn the PFT “genius” and his “dear friend” Mike Florio into the creator of ” Lets-talk-about-irrelevent-and-useless-BS-and-junk.com”.
    Mike, I listen to your interviews because you are informative and entertaining. But Rosenberg as your interviewer sucks because he makes it all about him and too little about football. At least I’m when you do (or have done) interviews with his WQAM colleague Joe Rose, I become entertained when you make Joe laugh with your punchlines like “Tim Tebow’s throwing motion is like Byron Leftwich’s in molasses” and “Braylon Edwards beat up Lebron James’ 120 lb friend, Steve Urkel”.

    SID = the man.
    he is by far the best radio personality ive ever heard…..thank god he is down here in the Miami market.
    i dont blame him for cancelling Marshall. Marshall went on like 4 different radio interviews within 2 days.
    Sid was like ‘i hate having people on who already did the radio rounds’ and sid was trying to get out of it. instead of getting out of it he was going to ask the questions that none of the fairy dolphins radio guys would.
    Sid did the right thing.

  55. RadioRetard says: Jun 24, 2010 2:52 PM

    Oh please. The Dolphins are morons. They have the worst PR and Front office. Marshall was trying to come on to promote a football camp for kids. I went to the website as he was doing an interview and the camp registration was closed. So he was promoting something that wasnt even accurate. Like anyone cares about what he thinks of Chad Henne. He never played with him in a game. People in Miami are so ridiculous. All they care about is the x’s and o’s. It’s the middle of the summer. Who cares? Get a life you losers.

  56. JetsAreAJoke says: Jun 24, 2010 3:20 PM

    @RadioRetard,
    Wow, your name says it all. The reason it was closed Retard is because it was only open to 500 kids and filled up within 30 minutes. And if you don’t like football news in the middle of the summer, why are you posting dumb comments?

  57. Anthony says: Jun 24, 2010 3:52 PM

    You guys a haters. Sid is a good guy who speaks from the hart.
    Florio- You should meet with him on his show.
    Last thing, Go Dolphins, Heat, Marlins and Hurricanes.
