I accept the show is hugely different to the breakfast show of 5 years ago. Since Andy Parfitt left I'd say the show has been more controlled and tame but I don't blame Chris for that I blame Ben Cooper. I think Ben Cooper would love nothing more than to pull the plug on the Chris Moyles show, he probably feels the show is beneath Radio 1 but with the listening figures still high he wouldn't get away with it at the moment.
A lot of my "everything is great" approach is somewhat tongue in cheek but I do love the show. Imagine the mornings without it?
You're basing that on nothing other than speculation.
I agree that without the breakfast show I would be missing a significant portion of my entertainment, but that doesn't mean that we can't have an opinion on whether it's getting worse. Indeed, at times members of the show team come on here to see what criticisms FANS of the show have.
The criticism from those who don't listen to the show is unfair - but you're referring to Moyles bashers who couldn't offer a reasoned opinion on the show if they were asked. Fans of the show know it very well, and can offer constructive criticism that can help people address problems.
Without feedback (both positive and negative) the show team have no gauge on what is working, and what isn't. It's better that they learn the show's shortcomings from fans as opposed to having them reflected in the listening figures - as we provide instant feedback that can be taken into account before it impacts on the show. At times it's very harsh on here - but when criticism comes from someone with no negative agenda who is a massive fan, don't you think it shows the bigger picture?
Basically, don't accuse people of being disrespectful for having an opinion that is different to yours. Especially when that opinion is more reasoned than yours.
