I don't think Mike was going bring up all that stuff again. This wasn't just an interview, sounds like 97.5 is a partner/sponsor for some of these events that Eric and John are doing.
Yes, Carton was absolutely involved...

"Philadelphia Flyers owner Ed Snider slapped CBS-owned Infinity Broadcasting's WIP-AM and host Craig Carton with a libel suit—and now the whole talk radio biz is waiting to see what happens.

On Feb. 28 Carton told WIP listeners that Flyers star Eric Lindros had been held out of a Feb. 15 game because he'd been drinking the night before and was hung over. Snider went nuts. Carton's report was patently false, he seethed, insisting Lindros had missed the game because of a bruised lower back"
