I'm convinced that he knows damn well he's wrong, and just does it to be controversial. It works, cuz we listen.

1) You are wrong. All the shows have talked about it. Jack Edwards was on today. You are just flat out wrong.

2) Why shouldn't they talk about UFC? It's a professional sport, it's been growing for about 8 or 9 years now and they are actually having major events and not cancelling seasons. It seems like pretty sour grapes to say "Waaaaaaaah my sport isn't getting any attention." on one hand and then saying that other sports shouldn't get any attention.

If you are unhappy with the lack of attention the NHL gets you have 2 groups of people to blame: the NHL and the fans. The NHL has proven again and again and again they can take the best sport on the planet and mismanage it. And NHL fans let them. It's great that we'll all come back to the sport after the lockout, but maybe we shouldn't. The casual fans won't and that will give media outlets all the reason not to cover the sport. Maybe if we dind't come back the NHL would actually have to look at the incredibly stupid way they've run their sport and actually take steps to fix it.

The NHL was run for years like a mickey mouse organization. They then went out and hired Bettman to try to make them a real professional league. He's made it worse. It's a testament to the sport that it's still damn good to watch, but don't blame casual viewers from tuning out. The league is practically forcing them to tune out with the way they've handled things: walking out on ESPN contract, 1st lockout, going to markets that it shouldn't have, leaving markets it should have stayed in, putting their games on a station many people can't get, etc etc.

It's nice to point fingers at EEI, but honestly... why should they talk about the lockout?

Nice rant.

How much have they talked about the NHL before Edwards was on today? And if Mut and Merloni have said anything about the Bruins besides mentioning in passing that Seguin re-signed, it's news to me. They spent half an hour today talking about Ray Lewis, while flashboy didn't even MENTION that Seguin had signed in Switzerland.

What Bettman or the union is doing is irrelevant - what is relevant is that Boston is one of the premier NHL franchises in North America, the Bruins are hugely popular, and EEI has all but ignored a major story. Did they ignore the NBA or NFL when they were going through this? Not on your life!

It's no secret that EEI has an antipathy for hockey, from Ordway's mocking "hockey
tawk" to Callahan's outright scorn. I bet they're ecstatic about the lockout so they don't have to pretend to be interested.

Our minds think alike.

I think we should all recognize Callahan's stellar hockey insight. Have a listen to these:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRyA8bGoGBo
I never knew that Graham Nash was Columbus' best player.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5UxkIizF9E
I also never knew Shawn Thornton scored 40 goals in a season for 3 different teams, or that he's played for 5 teams in the NHL.

: )You lost me...then lost me again.

UFC is not a sport. It's people paying to see blood. Nothing wrong with that...but it's not a sport.

You really don't think a sports radio show (in a city that had the Stanley Cup champion only a year ago) should be talking about the NHL not having a season?

EEI is garbage. End of story. They despise Hockey and specifically the Bruins. They tried desperately to climb on the bandwagon during the Cup run and made clowns of themselves. I can't wait to hear that they have flat lined.

The NHL league Mickey Mouse part I agree with. League needs to contract, Bettman needs to become an accountant in Cleveland.

Oh, come on. I agree that they should be talking hockey more, but let's be real, the UFC is most certainly a sport.

UFC is a sport, just like boxing was years ago....and a heavyweight title fight was the biggest story in the news, not just sport.

Anyone listening to T&R? Some pretty funny stuff involving Adolfo, some callers who want him fired, and Wallach's giant head being stolen.

Zo's pretty fired up on twitter over this.

Not a fan of Toucher and Rich in the first place, cuz they think they're funny, but they're not, but I go there from time to time in case they do actually talk sports, which is rare.

This morning was the worst radio I've ever heard. I listened for about 20 seconds and changed it. They were bawling out an intern....riveting!

Went back 15 minutes later, cuz everyone else was on ads, and they were talking about bawling out the intern...worst radio ever!!

A guy I talk sports with at work said, "Do you ever listen to T&R?. I listened this morning for the first time and still can't figure out why!"

He said, and I quote, "Worst. Radio. Ever!"

I do wonder how they have a show.

Listened to a lot of NPR this morning! LOL

The NFL cares so much they give us these garbage ref's

Bob Kraft losing his wife and deciding he wasn't going to let it happen is the reason the NFL had games, because they were going to have a stopage.

The NFL also cared so much for the sponsers they made sure they would get the tv money regardless if games were played.

Yup, the NFL cares..

You have to know their characters. It wasn't just two guys ripping into an intern, it was Fred and Rich ripping Adolfo. I enjoyed it.

Adolfo has been with them for years now.

They weren't just picking on some random kid. They are the only reason he has a job.

I like T&R, but it is clearly not for everyone. I was also listening to them before they did sports. I think that makes a difference.

I can't listen to those clowns anymore.

I tuned in at 6:30 and Fred was talking about him an his wife's scheduled afternoon trip to the "bone zone".

FML with that garbage. Then i went back to the rotation of WKLB, WRKO, and NPR to see if anyone was talking about the Senate debate. Heard some good lines from Scott.

It still didn't make for good radio, IMO.

I find it curious that a lot of people rant that they don't talk hockey, but don't seem to mind if they talk about their personal lives, or interview drunks outside the stadium, etc.

I guess I'm just an old curmudgeon...I like sports talk from my sports radio stations!

Also, I don't get to listen all day, just during my commute, so I like to get it while I can.

Reason number 214 why I don't listen to Felger anymore.

I can bet good money today that for the full 4 hours he will be saying about the NFL Ref lockout being over is, "Why didn't they get this done sooner."

No thanks.

I need a break from referee and bone zone talk in general. Hopefully Bobby V says or does something stupid soon.
