Yes, they are doing it all show. Kind of a celebration of what has gone on. I like these guys and will miss their rapport but Beetle will provide better coverage 12 months a year. But, from July to February they were the best at talking football.the1andonly3003 said:did Gresh address this to open the show today?
I missed the opening segment...did Gresh talk about the behind-the-scenes, or his side of it?RedOctober3829 said:Yes, they are doing it all show. Kind of a celebration of what has gone on.

Did not really get into specifics. But he addressed that "this ain't a funeral" and it's a celebration of what the show has accomplished. As NortheasternPJ mentioned, it sounds like he is moving on to a bigger platform.the1andonly3003 said:I missed the opening segment...did Gresh talk about the behind-the-scenes, or his side of it?
lol, first caller, Ed from Kingston, bashes on GreshRedOctober3829 said:Did not really get into specifics. But he addressed that "this ain't a funeral" and it's a celebration of what the show has accomplished. As NortheasternPJ mentioned, it sounds like he is moving on to a bigger platform.
FWIW, i've met and or been in the same place as Gresh a handful of times and i can say, in those instances, he was a major dickNortheasternPJ said:The first caller didn't like GRESH apparently. Ended with YOU SUCK and Good Riddance.
I don't care how much you don't like the guy, Gresh isn't a dick like F&M are. If you don't like him fine, but calling up on his last show and saying he's brutal, sucks and glad he's gone is pretty shitty.
I caught him coming out of the broadcast booth for the UMASS/UNH game at Gillette last year. I yelled "Gresh!" and he gave me a really great high-five. It's well established that the major dick's modus operandi is the firm handshake.steveluck7 said:
Didn't someone once post that at CSNNE he walked around in barefoot all the time because of "sore feet"? That alone is reason for termination.John Marzano Olympic Hero said:What did he do?
That sounded like CYA mode to me. Gresh seemed to pretty much say that there are all of these great opportunities out there from him to choose from, so it'll be interesting to see where he lands next. I wouldn't be surprised if it was the graveyard shift in some podunk town.Patriot_Reign said:Also, to summarize the opening part that I listened to, Gresh basically said that only one person knows the truth of what's happened, and that person is him. Said he was pissed about how it's been portrayed in the public and that he thinks it's unfair. Decided instead of airing dirty laundry the better course of action is to take the high road (admitting that dirty laundry airing hurts future employment options)
A couple of the times were at restaurants / bars (once @ the Hooters in Warwick) after appearances for his show back when he was on the providence station. He was really rude to some people who were either trying to talk to him or get an autograph. "You need to get away from me" type language. Another time i was at a restaurant waiting for a table and he was rude to a hostess because he didn't want to wait. "I'm here all the time with my show!"John Marzano Olympic Hero said:What did he do?
Mazz may be annoying on the radio but overall I can see him being a genuinely good guy.The Four Peters said:
And I can say that Tony Mazz is a really really nice guy in person and did some really cool things to help me that he didn't have to at all (granted this was before he was on F+M).
A couple years ago I called in and ripped Mazz for something. He became furious and started yelling at me. Then he called me an obnoxious jerk or something like that. About five minutes later I got a text from the show saying something like "Tony hopes you didn't take the jerk remark the wrong way. Keep calling in". I have no idea if he told them to do that or not but I guess it was nice of him. Fwiw, I texted back that I appreciated it and I wasn't remotely offended. I can't stand him on radio but I've never heard a bad word about him off the air. Same with Felger.HomeBrew1901 said:Mazz may be annoying on the radio but overall I can see him being a genuinely good guy.
I was listening this morning to him and Wallach talk about Revis and had to shut it off. Just unlistenable.HomeBrew1901 said:Are you Gresh's mom or brother? Not sure why the Beetle hate but keep on I guess.
Heard Gresh filling in for T&R today and he wasn't bad solo, granted it was mostly pop culture SNL type stuff, he didn't make me want to turn the dial.
No, PFW in progress is the podcast with the best local coverage.SeoulSoxFan said:
Since 99% of my sports talk consumption is through podcasts, I can easily pick & choose which topic I'm going to listen to (and delete the rest). Gresh & Zo had by far and away the best local Patriots coverage.
FARMINGTON – A new sports talk show is coming to WTIC NewsTalk 1080 featuring Joe D’Ambrosio and Andy Gresh.
