O.K. I'm a little out of the loop. Haven't listened for a while. Looks like Steves looking for a new producer. Is the kid finally on the way out?

Isn't the producer the one that everybody bitches about?

|

12/28/2015 6:46 PM

Yeah, Devin Gibbs. Everyone hated him. He would get pissy if anyone bagged on him.... really thin skin IMO.

It's a tough position to be put in, especially when you're as young as he is. His last episode (I think it was) he had a mini meltdown and you could tell the insults were getting to him. I hope he did end on good terms with Matthes and understands that most of the people calling him names couldn't do any better.

Coming out and saying something like exemplifies why he was cut. I get it, sometimes you try something, it doesn't work out and you move on. That's life. You figure out where you belong by trying out places you don't. But to say he had it out for you and you didn't want to get bullied is just petty. Maybe Steve's a dick. Could be. Still, go out with a little grace and don't put him on blast through your photo social medium.


I actually like gibbs. Sick a dick, bro. Suck a dick.

So I'm listening to last weeks podcast and we get the news that Goober Gibbs is out........I literally shout out "There is a god, Thank you Jesus, There is a god!" w00t

He might have been passable if he just produced the show instead of trying being a show personality.

I met Gibbs a couple years back. He's one of my buddies cousins. He was a nice kid the few times I hung out with him. Seemed to have skin a little on the thin side but he was a nice kid. Sometimes things just don't work out.

I heard it was a bitter love triangle between Steve, Gibbs and rocky.

But in all seriousness it kind of got irritating listening to Gibbs lose his shit and carry on like a porkchop. He copped a lot of shit but he made it worse by reacting and not learning from it, I'm sure Steve would of had words with him previously about toning it down and speaking when spoken to and not trying to force himself into the limelight .

I never really liked how he tried to interject so often into the show. I also never liked when Steve piled on. It was just kind of awkward. Then Gibbs would start losing his shit.... wash, rinse repeat. It's good for the show to go in a fresh new direction.

I liked Gibbs.
He wasn't great but he wasn't the shit show people made him out to be.
I thought everyone was a dick and a douchebag to him so I didn't really blame him for his actions and attitudes towards others.

I agree with you. Gibbs wasn't good but i can't understand why Matthes would pile on the guy with all those stupid hate voicemails that didn't contribute with anything. And then when someone actually tried to help Gibbs and give constructive criticism he just went full on crazy and called everyone dick heads.

Gibbs seemed like a good kid, but I never really cared for having him on the show.

Tits just has such a unique personality, makes for great radio bro.

Never heard of him

I get no enjoyment in seeing someone "fired", but I was happy to see him go. The previous producer, Tits, was a bit of a "lovable loser". The Tits vs Tits segment was funny and his lack of moto knowledge was entertaining. He spoke when he was spoken to, which was just right when it came to how much you want to hear from a producer (much like an on air radio show). Gibbs was not the on air talent - that's Steve, Keefer, DV, Watson, and Ping's job. Gibbs needed to just shut up and do his job. He was dumb, had horrible opinions, and had a terrible radio voice that sounded a lot like Butthead or Napoleon's brother. In addition, his lisp and inability to read were maddening, so no one wanted to hear the guy. He detracted from the show, big time.

i feel bad for him, i think he did really love the show and being on it, he copped quite a bit of shit. its no secret that steve can be a little abrasive and id be the first to say that devon got a little defensive sometimes but i don't think he deserved all of the voice mails etc, sometimes felt like they were trying to push him off.

i have to be honest i did always wonder if they got on off of the show, considering gibbs was there every monday in his house. i assumed they must get on a little bit.

ITS ABOUT TIME. good call steve.

good lord. hes 19 or 20 i think. hes a kid and acts like one on the show. immature, insecure and among other issues tries to put on this false bravado that was easy to see through.

again he is still very young so i simply hope he learns from this experience and grows as a person.

Glad he's gone. The job of the producer is to be more behind the scenes and only give their opinion when asked by the host or guest. He would constantly interject his opinion or what he thought was something witty when the majority of the listeners didn't care to hear it. I would say I'm surprised he didn't try to change after all the hate the show received through emails and voice mails, but from seeing his IG post it's apparent he's not mature enough to know his role in a business.

Exact same thing here. You must be talking about a thread titled "Gibbs Out" with everyone rejoicing. I thought it was weird that Coy had pissed so many people off. laughing (I didn't read that thread either).

It's cool to me that a small thing like this happening on our show gets its own thread on Vital!

People want to look for some big thing that happened or maybe a fight or whatever but sometimes, things just end. I felt like we needed a change in that position for chemistry sakes, I felt like Gibbs was losing interest and getting angrier and I did hear the numerous voicemails, read the tweets, emails or on here for people that were also not pumped on having him on the show. Like, it got to be a lot. Add all three of those things up and we decided to make a change. Gibbs is cool, he did a good job for us and hopefully he's not pissed.

Mathis is getting weeded out of the pro pits one team at a time he and his almighty will be outsiders soon.

Love the show. The best guests are #1 keefer damn close 2nd is dv. Keefer has a lot of technical knowledge on stuff thats makes it good.

I haven't listened to last night's show yet, but I thought Talon was great last week. Strong moto knowledge, good radio voice, able to hold up his end of the conversation. Seemed like 'one of the guys' which gave the show a nice flow and 'feel'. It seemed more like something you'd hear on satellite radio and less like public access - not at all 'janky'. Huge upgrade.

12/29/2015 10:27 AM

The dude did not get it. He was supposed to be a shadow of a personality, back up Steve, carefully handle the guests (all professional athletes, some of whom are rockstar millionaires), and ensure his job is done seamlessly all with humility and maybe a tad of lightly seasoned sarcasm.

But there were times where I could hear him challenge Steve and even talk loudly into the mike calling Steve out on stuff. Lame lame lame. Biting the hand that feeds you. If I only heard a few things then I am sure there was more behind the scenes we did not hear. Hence Steve's decision.

For Devin to then post on his social media a statement that clears himself of all wrongdoing, but suggests Steve is unfair in his decision like there is some kind of conspiracy, tells a lot. He still doesn't get it.

this forum is moto-related and many of the people that frequent here also listen to your moto-related show; so it's really not that surprising in the grand scheme of things.

as for Gibbs, i didn't care for much of his input but i wouldn't say i didn't like him as i didn't know him from Adam. anyway, keep up the good work on the show.
