    I like what's happening

    I read all the time about how bad Sirius management is. Not true IMO. Sirius always seems to be adding new opportunities for the listener...the NFL and other sports, Eminem, etc. Trying to tap into the Canadian market is huge. Although XM had the jump on Sirius I think overall Sirius has been the innovators in a lot of different areas. I like the direction the company is headed. This stock is a keeper. Just buy it and put it away. Check back in a year or two and you should be very happy.

    • I kind of alternate between "being excited/ and being disappointed"! I do think we have definitely have taken the lead with "content", no question; and I'd say Joe Clayton has been more responsible for some of our "really exciting content providers", in addition to our retail partners, Dish and Radio-Shack, than probably any other individual at Sirius, just b/c of his "past history in consumer electronics", i.e. RCA-DTV!
      However, that being said, we're just not seeing the growth we need to give investors confidence, no national advertising, and we're always "waiting in the wings" for this "great propulsion" to take place.
      Maybe we do need a Mel Karmazin on board, to really "get this Dog up"!
      It's a trade-off though; don't forget the original Sirius Manifesto! I don't know that we'd have the same "originality, creative-mojo, or budding-talent" that we now have, if we "go more mainstream", with the likes of a former Viacom chief.
      Personally, I think we need a "major marketing firm", to really "sell Sirius to the public". That's the "one thing" holding Sirius back, imo, is just not enough people really know what "Sirius" is? I mean, your avergae "Joe Public". They know XM, that's b/c XM has done to marketing itself, exactly what Sirius needs to do for itself! I think we'd help attract the likes of a big "Ford" initiative, if we really got the Public behind Sirius.
      Use the Dog-appeal, start the advertising Blitz; get Dish to feature Sirius in their full-page newspaper adds, and their constant internet pop-up adds; get Prascilly Presely to do TV spots, and give Sirius a "human feel" (instead of the robot, "out-of-touch" adds!; get some NFL players to start "pushing Sirius".
      That's what we need entirely, a "Sirius Presence"! PERIOD. END OF PARAGRAGPH!
      Mary Pat Ryan, are you there? Where is the "Sirius apparel" Joe told you to "start-on", and have on the web-site during last CC?
      When people are paid "millions", then as stockholders whose equity has been "hit upon" time and time again, to keep the "Sirius ship afloat", we have a right and obligation to ask these kinds of questions, imo.!

    • U and Joe Clayton and apparently the board too are the only fools.

      Canada NFL all cost us money we do not have. You can see it was money down the toilet. We are spending too much money raffles sweepstakes, what have you, just to bribe or convince people to buy a subscription. XM has spent 1/4 as much foolish money too get where they are.

      And forget who came out first, thats pass`e
      Sirius still hasn't come out with a small chip unlike XM who came out with their tiny chip, the first day. Fire Clayton!

        Comeon you need to look at the big picture. Getting into Canada is worth spending money on. It will increase the sub base tremendously. You have to spend money to make money. The NFL is big. I have two friends who are thinking of buying Sirius in the near future just because of that. These moves will all pay off in the future.

    • Judging the enormous dumping by insiders I don't think they agree with you.

    • >>I like the direction the company is headed.<<

      You must have been a Kamakazi pilot in a previous life.

    • You must be drunk. Why is the stock down then with all this great innovation?
