I find it fascinating that the OP repeatededly cites Cheapy's vastly superior "professionalism" as justification for Wombat's removal from the CAGcast. So would this be the professionalism that led Cheapy to belch loudly in each of the first 65 or so iterations of the CAGcast? Or perhaps it was evident when he discussed, at length, the moral complexities of eating feces for money? No? Maybe it was his professionalism that led him to lapse into blackface a few weeks ago? I know I find it very professional when he prefaces every other DS discussion with a note about his latest dump.

Give me a fucking break.

The fact is, Cheapy and Wombat are each capable of having less-than-professional moments. For Cheapy, that generally involves a fascination with bodily functions. For Wombat, it is a tendency to fly off the handle and take sometimes indefensible positions. In each case, one host takes it upon himself to balance out the other and we manage to stay on track. Why do you have such a problem with that?

Despite your protests that you don't have anything personal against Wombat, you sound like a sad, bitter little person. I hope no one takes out a baseless vendetta thread against you.

I'm telling you. JimmieMac and CheapyD as a CAGcast Tag Team would rule all.

That would be hilarious :lol:

I have to agree with the OP. I used to listen to all the CAG casts but I barely listen to any now. It feels like it has turned into Wombat Whinefest, where he just complains and bitches about something. I am fine with someone sharing their minds just do it professionally, not like a child. It feels like each week Cheapys' main job is Wombat wrangler, whether he has to keep him on topic, or move the show along, because it just lags.

Also enough with random noises. I enjoy the burp noises like the next guy, but the constant random noises that come out of Wombat's mouth is just annoying. Maybe its just me but it seems distracting and detrimental to the flow of the show.

Wow, this is redicoulous, the original poster has no right to make this type of post, this goes beyond a general disagreement but your trying to act like you have the damn right and privelege to call Wombat out on something he is doing for free, its pretty damn easy to come on the boards and complain but you have no right to do that, if you want a searious pod cast for games listen to something else, the shows laid back premise is what people such as myself with a life enjoy, the only peope who are disapointed in it will be the ebashers who come in here and act like they have the notoriety to attack someone on a personal level, if you dont like the damn show then dont listen to it, but dont come in here and try to get Wombat pulled from the show from something he is just doing as a damn hobby.

i have been listening to the cagcast for a fairly long time and still enjoy each episode. I enjoy listening to both of them talk about there opinions on games and the industry. The one thing that I would like to see in the cagcast is a little more prep work...I know wombat has a fulltime job, but so dont a lot of other gaming podcasts, and they seem to have a much smoother show on a regular basis. Both of you keep up the good work.:applause: :applause:

I support Wombat. He's the color man. Both are both unprofessional, reason is because they are not professionals. People take the Podcast too seriously. These are just two guys talking through Skype. They try their best to make the show entertaining and Wombat is just fine. They complment each other well.

So Wombat, keep on going and don't take it to heart. Your doing just fine, a lot better than 99% of the people on here would.

I agree. These guys are not editors for friggin Gamespot or EGM. Which is what I like about them. They sound liek the average gamer and I quote frankly would rather hear user opinions than some dude who is a professional cause I find them usually boring and their humour too dry. Keep doing your thing Wombat and don't let others bother you. You have (as far as you guys said in Cagcast 73) about 5000 subscribers to your Cagcast and only a few here complaining about it and the other 49xx that do not have an issue. If they did they would not subscribe to it.

I like the format and I like the Cagcast just the way it is. .... and for god's sake I have heard far worse. Could be like other podcast that involves certian fanboys of a certain Microsoft system that friggin bleep the swearing cause they want to be "professional" yet they say "For the Win" 85 times per cast using crappy audio recording equipment and that is more annoying than anything!

You are, of course, entitled to your opinion. You just have to be aware that when you go out of your way to attack someone with little direct provocation, you may find yourself attacked on the same grounds (or lack thereof).

Also, to all of you who are arguing both sides of professionalism: What does a "professional" video game podcast sound like? Because I've listened to IGN's, GameSpot's, 4CR's, 1UP's, and a few others, and frankly, they make the CAGcast sound like "My Dinner with Andre."

I have listened from day one as well, but i disagree. If wombat wasnt on the show, i would not listen. He is the reason i listen to the show. I like his bold comments because hey, he is a normal guy. He has other things going on in his life besides a video game podcast. I like hearing how he feels about a game because he gives his opinion out straight. He gives his opinion from someone who likes games. He does not have time to fully give every single game that comes out a blown out test run. He plays what he can. Is it so bitter for him to become more stingy when it comes to video games? Cheapy can offer plenty of his views, he plays a lot. Wombat offers his view as a normal human being. I am not sayin Cheapy does not work hard or anything, I am just saying some of you need to give Wombat a break.

Vagina Clown, ya, it was childish, but hey, he had his fun and it is that kind of fun that tends to lighten up the cagcast a bit. It is as if you all expect Cheapy and Wombat to sit in a dark room all day playing games to tell you about them. They have lives too. Wombat offers the humor and criticism from a normal guy who does not spend all his time researching games, this is what makes him so great. He is just an honest guy who speaks his mind.

Like someone said earlier, the best part about cagcast is that its just a nice casual talk. It is a good thing to listen to just to sit back and relax. If you want to know everything about everything, go listen to a different podcast or research on your own time. These two guys just try to offer what they can as grown ass men. I cannot believe people would actually rather listen to 2 hrs of Cheapy's voice straight. If that happened, that means i would probably have to listen to his belches again, which made me cringe everytime i heard it through my loud speakers.

Wombat and Cheapy, you guys are great together, it shows in the cagcast animation video that showed you guys together as a pair called cagcast mountain lol. That animation skit was priceless. But keep going, i like what you guys are doing. And keep your witty comments strong Wombat. Say it like you mean it, not what other people want you to mean.

Who would Cheapy fool into watching meatspin if wombat weren't around?

I don't want a "professional" show. Shit, its not like they're getting paid for this. The interviews have been a great addition, but what I come back for every week is two regular (and different from each other)guys joke around about my favorite hobby.


Exactly. If you wanted something that was all professional, you would listen to Major Nelson or whatever floats your boat. I think they do a damn fine job entertaining and providing information without bein paid for it.

I do not always have time to check up on games, so listening to the cagcast keeps me up on some things that i have missed at times in the news. The reason that makes it so good is that it is just a couple of guys sitting back. That is the way video games should be.

See, this is exactly what I was talking about in that other thread. Some of you guys take video games too seriously, whining about Wombat being "unprofessional" in a video game podcast is just absurd. Have you even heard a podcast that tries being professional? It's like sitting through a college lecture, why would you even want to go through that for a hobby that's supposed to be FUN?

What the Fuck is this coup with people trying to get Wombat replaced by JimmieMac? It's been mentioned a few times in this thread already. Face it - JimmieMac was on the early podcasts, they sucked. Wombat and Cheapy have made the CAGCast the #3 gaming podcast on Digg.

Jimmie had his chance. Wanna lose listeners? Then go ahead and swap Wombat and JimmieMac.

JimmieMac would be 100% better then Wombat. The majority of CAG are nerds and hate JimmieMac for the person he is. The Nerds have been picked on by a JimmieMac like chararter their whole lives either from School or even work. That's the big reason why CAG is against JimmieMac.

I think jimmiemac is hilarious. He'd definitly get my vote for replacing wombat. His guest appearances were hilarious. Between jimmie and cheapy I see great results.

QFT. All of you who complain that Wombat is bitter and unprofessional and then posit JimmieMac as a replacement are hypocrites. I've sure JM is a perfectly nice guy, but the in the few podcasts he's appeared in, he's proven himself a surly and obnoxious, and seems more interested in making snide and flippant remarks than actually discussing topics intelligently. I, for one, would stop listening the day he took over, and I've been listening from show 1.

I can't disagree more. I can relate to Wombat, and think he brings a lot to the show. The show has always been unprofessional, whether it's about Thai whores, vagina clowns, or Knight Rider replicas.

It's ok to have a life outside of video games. There are already people out there who are paid to play and talk about it for a living. Wombat brings an everyman feel to the show.
