Nice work. Pretty close to what Felger actually said when I tuned in around 5:30 for the drive home. It’s almost like the takes are predictable.Today will be "Michel is so horrible in short yardage they've had to resort to using Develin, my God, that's pathetic, what a waste of a 1st round pick!"
They did the same yesterday. It was unlistenable. They played the full clip coming into the 3:00 hour, spent 10 minutes on it, then took a call from Carlton (Remember when Felger said...No celebrity callers?!??!??). The 10 question segment was next with Breer, which is usually OK. Come back from commercial, take a call from a woman who says, "I was thrilled with the game. I thought they were going to lose, but it was great! Lets talk about how well they played." And Felger went off on his UGHHHH WOOOOOOO BLEEEEEEHHHHHHHHH You can't talk about anything negative about the Patriots. Click.....a few minutes later......EVERYBODY Shut up...we can talk negative about the Patriots .....BLEEEHHHHHH UHHHHHH WAHHHHHHHH. Who is this "everybody"? They took 2 calls in an hour. Carlton and the lady.Listened to a few minutes yesterday. Tons of faux outrage at Brady's post-game comments (which were basically a parody of the Mazz hot take that the team sucks and will not win in the playoffs). They spent far more time on that aspect than anything else related to the game or the upcoming battle with the Chiefs.
They definitely didn't go 15-1 on the road the last two yearsIn the call with Carlton in Tampa (does this guy put his tin foil hat on before calling in?), Felger said the Pats haven't won on the road since they stopped taping opponents signals and deflating balls. I just don't know why anyone continues to listen to this guy. Even if he is saying things to get the fans to call in, he is such an a-hole to them that there isn't much of a point. He is the exact opposite of the way local sports radio works in LA where all they seem to do is kiss up to everyone.
I'm guessing he said nothing about a few questionable pass interference calls, or the missed OPI late in the 4th quarter.Felger lost his mind on the roughing the passer call in the 4th Quarter when it was 21 to 17. Did not realize there's an app where Felger and Wiggy react to the game real time in the 4th Quarter. Hearing Felger drop a string of F-Bombs is like listening to your school teacher flip out and start swearing.
If a listener listens to a show like that to hear "complimentary" talk, then the fault is with the listener. As it is if the listener wants to hear "intelligent" talk, "enlightening" talk, "informative" talk or anything other than talk that could be heard at a bar near closing time.Seriously. If you're listening to this show thinking that these three guys will say something complimentary about the Patriots (or any Boston team), you're crazy. They have their algorithm and they aren't changing.
Joe Dokes hit the nail on the head and I know I've asked this question before but I'll ask again...
We know what this show is by now, it's been 10 years and the only change has been Jim Murray and we know he sucks.
Felger basically admitted again last night around 5:30 that it's radio and they use various takes to get people to listen and get them riled up.
Why take the bait and listen? My trigger finger is extremely itchy and as soon as I start to get annoyed I switch to Spotify or a podcast.
So, at best it's like Top 40 radio (or Classic Hits or pick your canned format). "listen for an hour (or a week) and you might hear 5 minutes (or an hour) of music (talk) you can stand."True, and Gasper can dish it with them too on his weekly hour.
LOL, the average Felger Hater listens for 2.5 Hours and goes to post on a message board about it.
This probably is accurate. For my own reasons, I never listen and rarely post.LOL, the average Felger Hater listens for 2.5 Hours and goes to post on a message board about it.
Correlation. Causation.I do think complaints help explain why Michael Holley replaced Felger on Sunday Night Post game and pregame. That was no accident.
I like him a lot too; all I've heard so far from the two show hosts during his segment is how the Rams are the 1970's Steel Curtain/1985 Bears/2000 Ravens all rolled into one.I actually like Gasper a lot. I do try to tune in to listen to him.
