ERIC PATE AND I NEVER FOUGHT

I want to get one thing straight. I never had a fist fight with Eric Pate when I worked at WDFN.Pate and I got into heated arguments during and after shows. We did not see eye to eye on many issues and we both bring passion to the table and do not back down.But I never fought the dude. One day we screamed each other on the air and it carried over to the break. We got in each others face and I wanted to hit him. But I am a professional. You do not settle things with fists in the office.The argument we had was so heated and so loud that people in the office swore we were fighting. I told them we did not throw any blows. That is the honest to God truth.I just think they refused to believe us.And even if we did fight no one saw it.I have been in the media 24 years and I have never gotten into a physical altercation with a fellow journalist.Now have I wanted to bust somebody?Yes.But you know the old saying. I am a lover, not a fighter.

Forget about not seeing eye to eye, you should dump your current radio host and team up with Pate. Even if you don't see eye to eye, I enjoy listening to you two as much as anyone in this town. Pate is a hidden gem, and no one does better impressions. I know it will never happen because Eric is just too outspoken, but that's what makes for good radio. As far as toe to toe goes, I got to think you got the size on Pate, don't you, two different weight classes?

One of your producers at the time told me himself that Pate pounded the hell out of you, T. Just admit the truth, there's no shame in getting your rear end handed to you

Wait,
I thought I kicked pate's ass. how did it turn around that he beat me? I think what happened is two brothers were yelling loudly and all the white people got nervous. They figured we had to be pounding each other when actually we were letting off steam

Pate is such a loser. The guy took up a whole segment of his show crying because he got knocked out of the DSR tournament early. He's hanging on to his lame weekend show by his fingernails and should be on the next bus out of town sometime soon. How the guy ever got a show with "The Truth" is beyond me.

Here is how Pate and I got together. I was doing the sports doctor show with Art. Art left WDFN for XYT.
After he left Gregg Henson, who was program director, said he was going to pair me with Sean Baligian. I was prepared to do the show with Sean and we talked about how the show would set up.
But then Henson changed his mind and paired me Pate and said it would be a dynamic show.
That is how it happened.
