    Kirk and Callahan: Annoying Little Pissants

    Yeah, that's true. But he certainly hasn't brought a different voice during the paranoid Bernie rantings this week.

    Kirk and Callahan: Annoying Little Pissants

    Gerry is a Cruz guy. Thinks Trump is vapid and too liberal. Was never a Christie fan because of the Obama hug. I thought Minihane would bring more of a liberal perspective, but he seems to be pretty lockstep with Gerry in regards to politics. Or maybe he's apolitical and just doesn't care...

    Kirk and Callahan: Annoying Little Pissants

    Absolutely. In fact, I'd even say Tanguay is the favorite to replace Dino whenever he decides to sail off into the sunset for good. There probably aren't a lot of people who could take working with Minihane on a daily basis, never mind work well with him. Tanguay seems to be one of the few...

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

      Right. Felger has done a nice job of creating an alternate universe between the hours of 2-6 p.m.: the cap is crap, everyone else in the media is a homer and – the latest addition to the group – the Wells Report was one big conspiracy to cover up for Bill Belichick, or something.    The show...

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

    Massarotti is so far out there in looney tune land, that Felger now plays the straight man on that show. Think of that.

    Midday with MFB

    Really? I think the "Trenni & Rich" morning shows they do are horrendous. Lame ass stuff, but maybe that's more Rich's fault.    My gut tells me it will probably be Tanguay. It seems like he gets a new shot every five years or so. It's his time. I wonder who will replace him in eight months.

    Midday with MFB

      Yeah, Benz was a lame host. He was probably the most vanilla antagonist in sports radio, and no, that is not a compliment by any stretch.

    Kirk and Callahan: Annoying Little Pissants

      He seems to be close with Minihane and takes a joke well. I think it is as simple as that.

    Kirk and Callahan: Annoying Little Pissants

      I was going to post the same thing. Tanguay was very good today on the PC topic. It's clear he's not a dumb man. He just plays a dumb character.   And that's the worst thing about Tanguay, by the way. His schtick is so transparent. Lots of sports talk show hosts have stupid sports takes, but...

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    I could see Simmons as a lead-in to Maher, especially if the show has more of a culture slant.

      Guilty as charged. You know what they about those who ASSume ...   I still stand by my point that Big Jim is a big downgrade in the No. 3 chair.

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

    There is no opposition on that show whatsoever anymore. Mazz has been a high-pitched parrot for years and Big Jim Murray is human pavement. Felger just steamrolls him.   At the end, Beetle didn't fight as often as he once did, but he was still a dissenting voice when he needed to be –his...

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

      I'm not impressed with Murray. He seems like a cool dude, but I don't think he has the sports knowledge to challenge Felger & Mazz on anything substantial.    Though as we've noted before, Beetle stopped arguing with Felger & Mazz years ago. So it's probably not that big of a change.

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

      That's exactly what Ordway has been doing this morning on D&C. He says the Patriots screwed up with Revis, but also says they would've struggled to find the extra $4 million in guaranteed money they needed to re-sign him. He keeps challenging Callahan & Minihane to come up with ways that the...

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

    Really boring on the whole. Two guys who "just talk sports" doesn't really work – look at the most successful shows locally.    Nobody gives a shit about what Dale has to say about anything. Thornton is a nobody, and it seems like Holley only decides to try on rare occasions. It's a lightweight...

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

    Felger is becoming arrogant. He's been berating this caller who called up about Deflategate for like five minutes. Glenn Ordway would be jealous.   He never would've done that a couple of years ago. The ratings are through the roof because Dale & Holley sucks. People are clamoring for an...

    Thoughts about media types who don't have their own threads

      Baxter Holmes was the best sports writer in the city while he was here. It's a shame he moved on so quickly.   His September feature story on Marcus Smart is fantastic: http://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/2014/09/28/smart/nqpr3bsP2P3t8RqGdXXX5O/story.html

    Gresh out from the Sports Hub

    This must be tough for Gresh. As Chad Finn noted in his column, the show's ratings were incredible throughout this Patriots' run. It beat WEEI's midday show handedly throughout the years as well.    It's clear that Gresh's firing isn't performance-based. I'd be curious to know the backstory if...

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but I miss Wiggy on Felger & Mazz. It would've been fun to hear him go after them on Deflategate over the last two weeks.    Because radio is entertainment, after all. Bedard is smarter and more pragmatic than Wiggy, but he's dull – a bad entertainment...

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

      But if Red Sox hadn't signed Hanley or Sandoval:   *They're cheap, and don't prioritize winning anymore    *They're valuing the philosophy over players. Just like the Patriots, Mike!!!!!!   *I want horses. Not ponies!
