NEW YORK (AP) are sports fans and there are sports fans. And then there s “Superfan” — Alan Minter, a Miami realtor. He argues a lot about sports in his spare time, but not in bars, bleachers or stadiums.
He currently argues with his fellow fans each week night on radio station WINZ in Miami, has argued with them the past two football seasons Sunday nights on public TY station WPRT and may do it again this season. Ruth shows are called “Superfan” and the formats are phone-in.
Minter, 34, who says he majored in history and psychology and minored in English and human relations in four years at the University of Miami, tries to avoid controversy, of course.
Rut he will say. for example. he thinks Howard Cosell is “absolutely horrible” or that ice hockey “is an idiot game.
. . just a bunch of middle-weights and put ’em on ice. It’s just a fight, anyway.”
♦ * *
“Alan is quite knowledgeable about sports and a very opinionated guy, although he often changes his opinion as the occasion merits,” opines George Dooley, president of WPBT and a longtime friend of Minter.
It was Dooley who first put him on the air, despite Minters total lack of on-air experience. He installed him in a living room set and let him talk sports with callers, live, for 30 minutes each Sunday night after the day’s pro football jousts were over Dooley, who said he’s considering a third “Superfan” season with Minter, says the idea “ was to have a controversial guy who sort of

the average sports fan, but not like a sports commentator.”
And Minter, an avid sports fan who says he played a year of football and three of baseball in college, filled the bill, Dooley said.

In the early days. ‘he added,
Minter was wont to abruptly end a sports colloquy by telling the caller, “You're dumb, you swine, I don’t ever want to hear from you again” and hanging up.
Minter, for whom selling real estate is a full-time job and broadcasting only a pleasant avocation, laughed. He conceded he was brash and occasionally rude in the beginning. but only to drum up viewer interest.
“You don’t create an audience on public television without having something extra or different,” he said. “So we just came on real strong when we started and we’ve toned it down somewhat since.”
