Broward County police found him passed out drunk on the side of the road at 2 am last night after just having left a strip club according to the Miami Herald. WQAM has decided not to suspend Rosenberg as of yet. Rosenberg was suspended for 3 months last year after plugging a gambling website he owed thousands of dollars too which is a federal offense. How this man hasn't gotten fired from WQAM is beyond me.

I am amazed WQAM keeps him around. After his illegal fax incident, he probably should have been fired.

Sid has many many personal demons. Drinking, Gambling, Cocaine. Hes been pretty much run out of NYC radio because of them. WQAM is dying in the ratings so its gonna take a lot before they fire Sid. Have you seen their daily lineup. Its horrid

hahaha. Wow, this guy is a disaster. He is just crying out for help.

And he claims to love his daughter and family so much, yet he is out at a strip club passed out drunk instead of at home with his family caring for them? This guy needs a reality check.

ESPECIALLY since his job is being a public image, it already has affected it.


The guy has no talent to begin with. Makes me wonder if he has something on his employer or something.....which is also illegal btw.

As much as I don't appreciate the vileness, and utter disrespect he has for Dolfans and S Fla fans in general I hope he gets help before he kills himself or someone else. Maybe whichever 'friend' in high places he has at WQAM can ensure that he gets professional help

People that drink alcohol more than socially and use drugs, especially to excess, are not responsible and reliable.

I do not like Sid on the radio, and I do not like the type of family man that he is.
He needs to clean up his act, and stop trying to act like a bald headed teenager.

Wow, that was extremely kind of Mr. Rose, really above and beyond the call. Good for him.

Rosenberg should get help, and WQAM should get new hosts. They're a shadow of what they once were.

PARTY ON SID!!!!!


taking a chance driving after drinking hard is a real bad idea. however, the fact they found him PULLED OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD passed out is a good sign he realized he was not supposed to be on the road, he wasnt passed out behind the wheel at a stop light like BRUCE SMITH of the BUFFALO BILLS was.

there was a guy who i worked with years ago in washington state. an engineer, real bright guy, slide rule in pocket, the whole nine yards. looked almost like NED FLANDERS from the simpsons.

anyhoo, one day a co worker comes in and says, "hey, did you all see this?" and there it was, our bright engineer had been caught loping his mule in a supermarket parking lot by the cops. small town and its on the FRONT PAGE!!! doh!!

he wasnt fired, and you know the upper brass had to know all about it. but, what could they do? wasnt on the company property, wasnt on the job, etc..... . but, the torture we put that guy through [and he had some juice, enough to get most of us fired before this incident was almost unbearable for him. we effectionatly named him SPANKY!!

so everytime he came downstairs and into the lab, someone would yell SPANK!!!! and then another, and another...... . if he was walking down the hall, someone would yell out, SPANK!! and someone, or a couple people would be slapping the side of there leg over and over when he was around.. he had it coming, ya gotta admit. he was in hell and probably wished he had gone to prison to be away from us. sometimes the social fallout can be much worse than a firing or time served.

the real kicker in all of this is, he was supposed to be a real religious guy and made a big stink once about the "language" he would here sometimes in the lab and other departments. so of course, after his public wack job, any time he was in ear shot, salty language was inserted to all conversation! and what could he do? it was all over his face. he knew if he said anything to a person, they would remind him of his date with palmella handerson at the grocery store and wasnt going to suffer that.

unless you have signed a contract in your place of employment saying you will be terminated for any implied offense and it wasnt done on the companys property or in company uniform or vehicle, a person SHOULD NOT lose their job. and in some circumstances, it could be very uncomfortable for employers or fellow employees. like spanky. even tnhough we used him as the company punching bag from there on out, it was creepy being around him. you always wondered what his intentions were and if he had done it before, or something worse! was thefre a roll of duct tape and a broken beer bottle in his trunk and tube of astroglide? bag of candy and a little mermaid doll? and you know the big brass was really tortured as this company is world wide and VERY prominant in local communities and politics. i am sure they would have LOVED to boot him out.

but there is a caviat or two like a person being CONVICTED of murder or rape or child abuse. these things can ruin a company by keeping them on. and of course, a conviction means your not coming back anyways, but like ted bundy, all the evidence is there, its a sure thing and the trial is just a bump in the road, they should be terminated.

but a radio guy who does sports, mostly regional and has a hookers and blow incident or two OFF THE JOB should not be fired. were not talking PEE-WEE HERMAN here.

who were the two most prominant people shot in a theatre in the united states?

Sid talks out of both sides of his mouth far too much for me to be a fan of his. That being said, he actually brings decent sports news to the table and he usually has some real good interviews. The Lebatard show can really go off on some other **** and sometimes I just wanna hear sports news.

WQAM's lineup is pretty terrible tho . . . They went from Big Dawg, The Great Gay One, Mad Dawg and the The Hammer to Big Dawg, Irvin and Curtis, Goldie and some guy and Sid. They really have fell down over the years (of course 2 of them died, but one already left the station before and Hammer went to ESPN).

Well a very very very very very small minority maybe one percent of the board. Im not defending drunk driving personally I have no problem with jail time for anybody that gets a dui, Im in a profession where you will lose your job and more if you get a dui. I personally think the penalties for drunk driving are not enough I was just pointing out how nobody called for Brown to lose his job when he got a DUI. When have I defended all of anybodies scumbag activities , I have called Marshall a scumbag since he has been here but Im not the one that invested 2 second round picks and tons of money on a guy that we all knew was a scumbag.

Actually I remember quite a hefty thread and back and forth convo about ronnie screwing up. People were saying it was racist, the cop had nothing else to do, ronnie was a jackass... ronnie could have killed someone... all of that. He blew like a .12 or something, but whats odd is if someone blows a .07, it wouldn't be reported and if it was that someone was pulled over and checked for a DUI and blew that, its nothing. If he blows a .08, he's a jackass, hes gonna kill someone, fire him.

Who's to say what type of person can drive coherently with a .05 or a .18? I don't like Sid and to be "passed out" he was probably blowing over a .25

Thats not cool, but if we are going to make a law on such numbers, i think as people who judge also need to take that into consideration. I would be certain a ton of people say if you even drink one, don't drive at all. Fine, but change the law then.

Well that's the thing that really speaks to how talented he was. In a business where people are constantly copying and trying to emulate the popular format, noone even attempted to do what Hendrie did because they simply couldn't. Any talentless hack can go on the air and talk about T & A and use 3rd grade toilet humor but I still haven't seen someone try to pull off what Hendrie did.

I don't think I've ever laughed so hard listening during his WIOD days. The stuff he came up with and the reaction from callers, he was the original and master troll

If the car was at the side of the road, someone drove it there. If it's his car, and he is passed out next to it, it's not a leap in logic to imply he drove his car there while impaired. Hence the DUI charge.

If he was still in the parking lot of the strip bar, I could see your point.

Any talentless hack can go on the air and talk about T & A and use 3rd grade toilet humor but I still haven't seen someone try to pull off what Hendrie did.

I don't think I've ever laughed so hard listening during his WIOD days. The stuff he came up with and the reaction from callers, he was the original and master troll


He's still on the air out in California, but the time he clowned Larry King live on the air over the Don Shula thing is still easily the best thing I've ever heard on radio.

How did they charge him with DUI then if he was found outside of his car?

Unless he parked his car out in the middle of traffic, got out, went to the club, got lit in there, then walked back to his car, in traffic, and passed out behind his car.....

he drove while being ****ed up.

Ya. I still can catch his show on national radio networks. Its not as character driven as it used to be since 2008. One of my favs during the WIOD days was when people would call the station asking to speak to the station manager or program director to complain about him. He would then pretend to be the station manager and piss them off even more. I remember one time the guest came on trying to say that more time should be given between a child being missing and actually doing the amber alert. The calls he got then were hysterical. Bobbie Dooley, Ted Bell etc. His characters had such distinctive personalities that unless you knew the gag, they were as convincing as it gets.

I think Hendrie's bits during the Miami days c. 1994-1996 are the best he's done. And yes, some of the most amazing out of those were the totally ad-libbed ones he'd do when someone called the station, whether to complain or sometimes via a wrong number.

He's certainly unparalleled when it comes to comedic brilliance and sheer comedic talent. But Neil Rogers was also one of the GOAT, as Hendrie himself has said more than once.

Ya. I agree. Those WIOD days were priceless with Phil and Neil. The Bridgetender, the Ebonics song. Even Rick and Suds are better than whats out there now. Wish Hendrie would of stayed but you knew he was going national sooner or later.

I don't like the idea that people should be fired for their personal life if it doesn't affect their job.

This is an odd stance to take considering the circumstances which you're making the statement... he's a public figure, yet you don't think his public perception "affects [his] job"?

I don't think it affects his performance. It may affect other people's attitude towards him, but not his actual ability to preform his job. So I'd say let the people decide, if his ratings decline because of this, then let him go; but if he still has decent ratings, then keep him. I'm not advocating drunk driving by any means, but I have a problem when places of work feel the need to punish an individual beyond the judiciary system we already have in place. I think there's obviously exceptions, but this guy doesn't pander primarily to children or anything, & I think we've become somewhat over sensitive as a society, & have a problem with dehumanizing people in the 'public-eye' by idolizing them and putting them on an unrealistic puritanical pedestal.

I have no problem with an employer holding their workers to a higher standard esp when one is very dependent on the opinions of thier listeners. I just want them to be consistent. Dont for example trade a wr that has had some issues just to sign a running back that has had some issues.

The DUI charge is justified.

"Asked if he will be suspended, WQAM program director Lee Feldman said, "Not as of right now." WQAM general manager Joe Bell declined to comment beyond saying he would be back on the air."

DWI laws in my opinion have totally gotten way out of control, and lets face it, it is a multimillion dollar business for both lawyers and prosecutors to make lots of money.

In the 60's and 70's this is would have been a no charge event.

Not sure if many of you know, but a DWI or DUI is a criminal offense, which in short, means its a crime that is punishable by jail-time (fines).

If you are out after midnight, and you get pulled over for a minor offense, like no turn signal violation or rolling a stop sign, and the second you admit to having a beer or two, more likely than not, based on the field sobriety test administered by the arresting officer, your pretty much going to get arrested and you're going to go to jail.

What many of you may or not know is, that it is in fact legal to drink and drive, and what I mean by that is, you can go to a club or bar and have a few drinks and get in your vehicle and be okay to drive home and that its legal.

The issue is or game being played is not being over the legal limit of .08.

Back in the old days, the legal limit was .12, so why the change....?

The theory was, too many people were beating the rap or getting off.

My opinion, Millions of people drink and drive everyday, but its that small percentage, that unfortunately kills someone, suddenly it becomes a poster child to making it a serious criminal offense.(typically they have a combination of alcohol and drugs if this happens.)

Personally, and its just a thought, but maybe liquor sales should be totally banned from being sold at bars and make it a lot more difficult(ban) to sell liquor at bars or stadiums etc

Well, NO.

Actually, back in "The good old days", you could actually drink and drive...that is, you could have a cooler in your front seat, open a beer and drink it while driving down the road.
Then they changed to the law that made it illegal for the driver to drink while driving, but a passenger certainly could.


Sorry, but your entire argument is not very well thought out.

Millions of people die every year due to DWI.

Thats not to say that everybody that has a beer and drives home is a criminal. The act of getting S-faced and THEN driving home is very very criminal.

I'd say the fact that he was passed out behind the wheel tends to lead me to the fact this dirtbag was well beyond whatever limit you find adequate. I could be wrong, and he could've been sleeping......I'm just much more inclined to believe he was sleeping it off more than anything.
