They treat the Neely segment with the same enthusiasm accorded to reading ad copy for window restorations --i.e., as a scheduled but unwelcome interruption from endless Welker talk. They find themselves and each other to be the most fascinating and amusing personalities on Earth, and we're supposed to just listen and revel in their comic genius.

I am far from a Felger-hater, by the way. There's lots I like about him, and even Mazz. But they should both realize that many of us can only find their douchery endearing if it's leavened with some humility and a semblance of regard for their audience. Without that, it becomes nauseating and stale.
In all fairness, that accent is ridiculous, and is like nails on a chalkboard to me. I've lived in this area my whole life and at no point have I ever sounded like some of the marble mouthed clowns that call into that show. If you also notice, they only break into the townie bit when the caller makes an incredibly stupid or obvious remark.

I mean really, how many times can you hear a mouth breathing thug bring up a point about the Pats and how "they'aah gonna screw ovaaah Welkaaaah" before it drives you a little nuts?

If you don't want people to make fun of it, learn how to speak English correctly, FFS. Otherwise, just take it with a grain of salt...
