Not sure but to give credit where it is due I thought they were great most of the week (I didn't hear any of it today).
Agreed. Good to hear their human side with all of the corona stuff. Definitely interesting to hear Murray’s “evolution” from “fake news hoax” to fully accepting that this is a real thing.Not sure but to give credit where it is due I thought they were great most of the week (I didn't hear any of it today).
they also had a good intnerview with chris mannix about the nbaWhen did they have the MGH dr/chief of medicine/whomever on? I heard Arcand play a replay of it tonight. Seemed like a really good interview with a guy who is clearly an expert in his field. I was actually surprised that they got him (he may have been related to someone because I think he referenced a host's sister during the interview?) but it was a real and informative interview
If they go 10-6 with Hoyer it means that almost definitely the young guys on the rest of the roster stepped up, which is still a great thing because they'll have a ton of cap space in a year if they still need a qb.even if ne goes 10-6 its a bad thing if hoyer beats out stid because hoyer is 35 and does it but if stid does it that couild prolong your dysty
I don’t think this is the point. Of course there would be other teams willing to sign a quality pitcher. The issues are:You think there won't be 2 dozen other teams lining up to pay Snell a lot of money?
3. He's concerned about his health, but only when it means taking a discount. He's ok with the risk otherwise. Which is a bit disingenous, imo. If you're really concerned about the risks then you just don't play, period.I don’t think this is the point. Of course there would be other teams willing to sign a quality pitcher. The issues are:
1. Here’s a millionaire complaining about making more millions by playing a sport when many, many people in this country are suffering severe financial hardship
2. This same guy plays a sport that has significant issues with remaining viable, and might never fully recover from a lost season. Especially when the lost season was driven by attitudes such as mentioned in #1 above.
I love the game and hope Snell’s attitude is an outlier among other players. It would be encouraging for other high profile players to come out with support for moving forward with an agreement for reduced salaries based on reduced games.
He believes the Pats should put Parcells in the Hall of Fame for reasons unrelated to anything he ever did in terms of coaching and winning games, so, yes, he is.Mazz is an idiot. It's well-documented.
They did not get told that they would be paid for the whole season. The owners gave the players $170 million in advance to divide up for the first 2 months of the season in case the season got cancelled. The players, as part of the deal reached at the end of March, also agreed not to sue for their full salaries. Also, people need to remember that the league is also granting every player a year of service time(or the same amount of service time as the year before if you only played part of the year in the majors) if the season is cancelled. So the players get a chance to get their arb raises or in Mookie's and other's cases become a free agent. Also included in the agreement in March is that players' salaries would be reconsidered if there is no revenue from attendance.He believes the Pats should put Parcells in the Hall of Fame for reasons unrelated to anything he ever did in terms of coaching and winning games, so, yes, he is.
That said, I kind of understand Snell's position here: players were told they'd be paid for the whole season if there was no season but now they're saying they'll get half-pay if there's only a half-season. To me, that doesn't add up. If you were willing to pay them to not play for a whole year, you should be also willing to pay them to not play for the first 2-3 months of the season. Not everyone makes tens of millions of dollars per season and some of the guys who make the league minimum or somewhere around there may not be able to afford just a half-season of pay. We can all debate how big the violin that should be played for them should be, of course, but I understand the principle here.
People keep making this point like Snell has some bizarre logic. Most people calculate risk by potential reward.3. He's concerned about his health, but only when it means taking a discount.

But I guess this thinking is just par for baseball. It's amazing they're still viable with how they continuously cut off their nose to spite their face.
Tyson is a tad scarier then Covid 19, imo. Even for 10 mil I don't think I'd get in the ring with Iron Mike. A couple haymakers would probably kill me.People keep making this point like Snell has some bizarre logic. Most people calculate risk by potential reward.
Would you fight prime Mike Tyson for $1,000,000?
What about for $10,000,000?
Is that really a weird question?
Great pull, and a great point.Saw this, though I haven't listed to them in forever. Just pure idiocy.
In the one glimpse into Belichick in A Football Life, he spent time in a meeting admonishing the players for a lack of enthusiasm and encouraging the players to celebrate.
In theory to take some pride in doing their job as well as they can, but I guess they don't care about thatWhy would these guys break a sweat? They've been #1 in the ratings for the past decade without watching the games, so where is their motivation to strive for more? When WEEI is trotting out Ordway, Merloni, and Fauria as competition, there's no reason to try harder.
I agree. This town deserves better sports radio, but EEI isn't mounting a real challenge. I personally don't understand the appeal of F&M, but the ratings tell me I'm in the minority.In theory to take some pride in doing their job as well as they can, but I guess they don't care about that
Everything old is new again. remember the discussions back in the early aughts around how WEEI wasn’t being challenged from 1510 “raising the bar”, on a weak signal, or how Felger was stuck on 890.I agree. This town deserves better sports radio, but EEI isn't mounting a real challenge. I personally don't understand the appeal of F&M, but the ratings tell me I'm in the minority.
Absolutely! In my rotation:I haven't found a good one yet! League or Sox doesn't matter, quality matters. I'd love a recomendation. Thanks!
