Matt Perrault engages me on Twitter, calls me “STALKER”, then ….. ?

I’m not sure what’s going on with Matt lately.

In March, Matt tries to engage, or poke, me into one of his “slams” on twitter, regarding the discounted price of, saying….

So the guy squatting on has it on sale today for $99 down from over $400. I guess I’m in the bargain bin now LOL.

Matt must have forgotten about how the web site price works. It starts out at around $99 about March 27th, until about April 4th, then it starts adding a dollar daily to the price until eventually resets to $99 again around March 27th the next year. So THAT’s when anybody can get a really good deal on it. Matt obviously must not have $99, but it’s obvious that he checks the site daily to see if anything has changed on it, as he commented on it the exact day the discounted price went into effect.

Anyway, I was kind enough to remind him about how the pricing works on the site:

RT: @sportstalkmatt “I guess I’m in the bargain bin now LOL.” Until 4/4, then it start goin up again. Just like last year

So after I retweeted him, and corrected him about his “bargain bin” status, he goes into a rage and calls me a “STALKER!”:

Stalker!! RT @SneakyDave: RT: @sportstalkmatt “I guess I’m in the bargain bin now LOL.” Until 4/4, then it starts goin up again.

So naturally, if a person calls a guy a stalker (which Matt has done to me 3 times), common sense would tell you that this person would want to stay away from that stalking individual, right?

But not Matt, a couple months went by, and then he sent me an email inviting me to JOIN HIS LINKEDIN NETWORK! WTF WTF WTF!? This might be Kook Of The Year material.

David, I’d like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn – Matt

Matt Perrault slams me on Twitter

Did the guy forget he called me a stalker, and threatened, in ALL CAPS nonetheless, to sue me if I documented his own quotes?

I always thought people didn’t update their LinkedIn information or send out invitations to people to join their network unless they were looking for work, but Matt’s only been back “home” working at WGAM and WEEI for maybe a few months at the most, surely Bostonions haven’t tired of him THAT quickly? Or maybe not?

WINNING posted:I’ve asked a few times but haven’t see or heard anything yet, but does anyone know if Matt Perrault is done with WEEI. I’ve heard Ryder on the weekeends the last few saturdays

GUEST posted: I’ve heard Perrault filling in for a graveyard shift here and there since being removed from the Saturday morning show. Seems he’s now the backup to the backup (Ryder). I like Ryder way better and would not be sad to see Perrault shown the door permanently.

WINNING posted: Thanks, I’m not a fan of Perrault btw just found it curious that after the jack Edwards incident, he was ousted but Minihane stayed on the show. Plus I have googled Matt Perrault and clearly he was not well liked in Nebraska. Ryder is definetly better and I have not heard Perrault on the airwaves since. I did check his blog and he has not made many mentions of radio spots on WEEI that often.

ArtSpooner posted: While on the subject of WEEI, Matt Perrault was gone from Sports Saturday and John Ryder was on in place. Perrault was not mentioned as being out for the week or mentioned at all for that matter. I hope he didn’t make it through his probationary period. Now if they would drop the other weenie, Minihane, a Bradford/Ryder show would be very good. I don’t know how things work at ‘EEI, but why wasn’t Ryder considered for the mid day show? He is light years ahead of Muttnansky.

AquaNarc posted: Does anybody know who this clown is hosting the EEI Baseball Show? His first name is apparently Matt and I just listened to him cling desperately/pathetically to this “The Spring Training performance led to the slow start!” narrative. I have to say, Bradford and Minihane aren’t bad, if they put Speier on this show I would probably listen regularly.

Red(s)HawkFan posted: Matt Perrault is his name. I think he’s the new Mutnansky (a.k.a. young non-descript weekend jock). I agree he’s not very knowledgeable. Fortunately, I arrived at my destination just when the whole “the 10 game spring losing streak caused it all” got going, so I was able to shut it off before I got too annoyed by it.

AquaNarc posted: This guy is unlistenable. He makes Mutnansky look like Edward R. Murrow. Another smart move by WEEI!

sportstalkmattboston then makes 5 posts, and edits them after a couple of days.

sum dood posted: I gave the Saturday show one more chance this morning and do not plan on tuning in again anytime soon. It’s a train wreck. That interview with Jack Edwards was a complete embarrassment and the fact that Bradford felt highly enough of it to post it on the EEI site goes to show you how clueless management over there has become. I find it hard to believe that NESN is all too thrilled about this..
The show would be somewhat tolerable if they lost that noob Perrault. He’s an even more grating version of Mutnansky – an empty suit who couldn’t hold an argument if it had handles. Figures that he was the one who got Edwards on the show just to blindside him with that asshattery, and then proceeded to strain a muscle patting himself on the back for it. Can’t believe WEEI has demoted proven professionals like Dale Arnold in exchange for hiring d-bags like Perrault.

Matt Perrault not “fired” from KXNO, just “nudged” according to competitor

Matt Perrault Shirt

UPDATE 2/25: Matt confirms his move from KXNO to WGAM. No response as to which statements from Marty Tirrell were lies: Next Step For My Career

“nudged” meaning, his contract wasn’t renewed….

Marty Tirrell of the Des Moines Radio Station “The Champ” started a fire on 2/22 that he couldn’t put out.

He claimed that Matt Perrault would announce that he was leaving competing station KXNO, to move to radio station in New Hampshire.

During a live chat last night on, Marty had an impromptu chat with fans and detractors regarding his statement. Matt Perrault has called Marty Tirrell a liar for the statements he’s made, and is excited to see Tirrell in St. Louis.

I feel really, really bad for @martytirrell Guy is so desperate is pathetic. Lying about someone you are jealous of is so sad.

Sucks when you get run out of so many towns that you have resort to making up lies about people half your age that you know R better than u

Marty claims that Matt “Got his old job at WGAM, Nashua, NH“, but Matt seems to only respond to questions about whether he “got fired” from KXNO. No word from Matt about what Marty is, or has been, lying about.

Speculation heated up on the message board, including the observation that Perrault normally shows up within an hour of someone mentioning his name to respond to rumors about him,  or members critical of his show(s), but he hadn’t appeared all day.

Following is a recent transcript of the MouthOfTheMidwest chat area while Marty Tirrell was having an open chat with users. This chat is unedited, but formatted to display properly. The most recent comments are first. “marty” is presumably Marty Tirrell.

Matt Perrault BEGS listeners to complain to his boss

A part time AM radio co-host and full-time Twitterer begs listeners, and non-listeners, to email his bosses to complain about him. Crazy talk, but I’ll oblige. This is the same part-time AM radio co-host that has a job reporting on UNI and Drake basketball in Iowa, but seems to only care about Creighton basketball in Omaha. He must have been drinkin’ at the computer again because his grammar’s been sliding.

Mc Bulldog:

This guy has no business in Des Moines as a sports talk show host … let’s all email his boss. Can you imagine what would happen if the shoe were on the other foot in Omaha? OMG … the Pope would get in the fray!!!

KXNO General Manager, Joel McCrea – [email protected]
KXNO Program Director, Van Harden – [email protected]

I think we should call some of the advertisers on KXNO, let them know how we feel about the situation. –

Two Drake fans called me and one said he is thinking of hiring homeless guys to picket the station and the other guy said he is going to make T-shirts and give them out.

Perrault is busting open a hornet’s nest!!!


Please email my boss again…that’s was great comedy.

Mecha Bulldog:

I didn’t realize KXNO’s ratings were so good that they could afford to pass off a local fan base. And laugh about it.


No, we were laughed at the email cause the person said that it was unethical to have me on the radio cause I run a Creighton website….

Quotes that Matt Perrault refuses to own

All articles regarding Matt Perrault here:

See…I don’t lie 🙂

This may be the best quote from Matt Perrault (blogger and infrequent AM radio co-host) that I’ve heard. Matt got upset when his own quotes were posted on a web site and he threatened legal action against what he believed to be defamation and libel, and threatened to sue EVERYBODY for ANYTHING they said about him.

Below is the complete list of quotes that were cycled through on Some show his ignorance, some bring to light his ego, some are his famous predictions, some show his neediess, some point out his foibles, but they are all memorable, in my opinion anyway. Your mileage may vary.

Matt claims that the “majority” of the quotes are fake with these statements…

Just FYI – the majority of this “quotes” are fake and I will take this fight to the fullest extent of the law. Defamation is happening IMO

just got worse cause now the quotes are FAKE.”
Source – Twitter 11:58 PM Jul 8th

The quotes are fabricated and flipped. I never said the majority of what you put up there
Source – Email to me 7/8/2009.

So, I’ve taken the liberty to list ALL the quotes that were in rotation at, and attribute each one to the source of it, most are from Twitter or his own blog. You’ll find out that Matt Perrault, is indeed, a liar. Maybe he can sue himself for some kind of fabricated libel.

[a whole buncha] published quotes, maybe (until I finish going through podcasts) 6 of them can’t be reproduced exactly (due to paraphrasing or not having the exact podcast).

UPDATED 12/09/2009

UPDATED 10/02/2009

UPDATED: 6/15/2009 – I removed one quote regarding Jade McCarthy and Charles Barkley, but supposedly, I’m being sent the podcast for it. So if/when I get that, I might change my mind, but then again, it’s just radio dude. This was Matt’s demand. I’m not sure who the other parties are, but I hope it’s not Joe Buck.

I am only going to say this once.

Remove the post about Charles Barkley and Jade. I never said ANYTHING like what you are attributing to me. I don’t care about anything else on your obsession site but that is post is a lie and will cause other parties to get involved.
