  • Other NBA executives just can't admit it
    Doug Franz | May 07, 2014 12:56 pm
    Toronto? I can see that. Charlotte? I disagree but I understand the sentiment. San Antonio? Idiotic. R. C. Buford is one of the best executives in the NBA. If you want to give him Exec...
  • Hey Cardinals, take Blake Bortles (if he's there at 20)
    Doug Franz | May 06, 2014 12:05 pm
    Finally! The needless wait will soon be over and we will have our answer to the question everyone asks and no one knows. WHO WANTS JOHNNY MANZIEL? I'm sick of talking about him. You're sick...
  • Doug Franz's weekend wishes: Wins for the D-backs and the NFL Draft to happen already
    Doug Franz | May 02, 2014 12:55 pm
    Every Friday I look to the upcoming events of the weekend to give you what I'm hoping to see this weekend. You can tweet me your weekend wishes @doug987FM....
  • Adam is the Silver lining after Stern
    Doug Franz | April 29, 2014 12:43 pm
    Adam Silver is going as far as he possibly can. He gave Donald Sterling the max. No matter what is said or written, make no mistake that Donald Sterling is the bad guy. I still have questions that...
  • This one's for you, Donald Sterling
    Doug Franz | April 28, 2014 11:47 am
    A few people tweeted me during the show Monday and begged me to talk about something else. I'm sorry. I couldn't. It's my penance. I will never forgive myself. It was, and is, my most miserable...
  • Doug Franz's weekend wishes: D-backs, NBA and NHL
    Doug Franz | April 25, 2014 10:31 am
    Like all of us, every Friday I like to look ahead to the weekend. I do nothing on Friday and Saturday but spend time with my kids. Sunday is back to work watching every game that occurred over the weekend...
  • More than all-access
    Doug Franz | April 24, 2014 6:00 am
    I'm yelling down the hall talking to a friend I haven't seen in a few months. I'm 10 minutes early walking into what I think is an empty meeting room. Someone else is holding the door open for me, so I'm...
  • Arizona Cardinals' Daryl Washington now has a two-strike count on him
    Doug Franz | April 23, 2014 12:00 pm
    The beginning of the beginning. I didn't make that up, Wolf did. It's not stealing if you acknowledge your own lack of creativity, but I love it for Daryl Washington. Every time I talk to Daryl...
  • Diamondbacks didn't have a chance after Sydney
    Doug Franz | April 22, 2014 1:19 pm
    Blame it on Sydney. Is it really an excuse if it's fact? I'm not blaming the fact that the Arizona Diamondbacks aren't contenders for the West on Sydney. The Dodgers and Giants have better...
  • If you dislike Robert Sarver, don't read this!
    Doug Franz | April 16, 2014 12:54 pm
    It's bigger than the elephant in the room. Nobody wants to admit it. We like having him to blame for everything that's wrong with the planet, the country, the economy...Phoenix. Life seemed great...
  • One win, six losses: A bad weekend for Arizona sports
    Doug Franz | April 14, 2014 12:21 pm
    One win. Six losses. With all due respect to the Arizona Rattlers and their huge win on the road at San Jose, the Suns, Coyotes and D-backs went 1-6 over the weekend. The only win was in the most...
  • Doug Franz's weekend wishes: Coyotes, Suns, Diamondbacks and soccer
    Doug Franz | April 11, 2014 10:21 am
    Here are my weekend wishes: LOSE TO THE BLUES The 2014 Phoenix Coyotes do not deserve to make the playoffs. Teams that go on six-game April losing streaks playing mostly listless hockey...
  • Pelicans game proved some key Suns are not ready
    Doug Franz | April 10, 2014 11:09 am
    The key to the 2014-2015 Suns is keeping Markieff Morris and Gerald Green on the team. The key to the 2014-2015 Suns is keeping Markieff Morris and Gerald Green on the bench. Whenever the Suns...
  • KT = Keep Towers
    Doug Franz | April 09, 2014 2:39 pm
    Openly question his decisions. They were average for two straight years. Rip him. They are the worst in the sport. Just don't fire him. Kevin Towers is the right man to be general manager...
  • Hey Adam Silver, do it for the game
    Doug Franz | April 08, 2014 2:03 pm
    I already love the new NBA commissioner more than the old one. David Stern saved the NBA just as much as Magic and Larry did. He can never be underestimated for what he did for the game. Unfortunately...
  • Phoenix Suns' P.J. Tucker is a good role model for us all
    Doug Franz | April 07, 2014 11:10 am
    Toronto. D-League. Israel. Ukraine. Israel again. Greece. Italy. Puerto Rico. Germany. Next up was supposed to be Russia. Those plans were derailed. Although the list of Lance Blanks accomplishments...
  • It's all about fathers
    Doug Franz | April 03, 2014 1:09 pm
    Without realizing it, the last week has been all about fathers. I have a great father. I hope you can say the same thing about yours. I just finished reading
  • Many failures led to wrong call in Diamondbacks-Giants game
    Doug Franz | April 02, 2014 11:50 am
    First and foremost, for the 877th time, referees and umpires do not lose games. The Giants lost Tuesday because they couldn't hold onto a four-run lead. Blame Matt Cain. Blame the Giants' offense because...
  • Panic over the Suns but not the Diamondbacks
    Doug Franz | April 01, 2014 11:47 am
    I was asked an excellent question on Twitter Tuesday during the show by @ontherun81: Which team is driving me more crazy, the D-backs or the Suns? It's far and away the Suns. I'm not panicked over...
  • Doug Franz's weekend wishes
    Doug Franz | March 28, 2014 11:04 am
    FINAL FOUR I'm looking for Florida, Michigan State and Louisville to advance to the Final Four (I picked Creighton so the UA game means nothing to me). It's simple. If that happens and MSU...
