You can flip back and forth between stations and hear the same **** over and over and over all day long. It's like choosing between crappy beers.

On the other hand, I did catch some of the hockey show on Saturday morning on 98.5 last weekend and it was the best radio I'd heard in a long time. Made me realize how even when the weekday guys do lower themselves to hockey, none of them really know how to say anything other than surface level **** stirring. In depth hockey conversation with knowledgeable hosts....good god, the novelty of it.

Thanks for the reminder. What time's that on again? 9 a.m.?

That reminds me, I listened to the Puck Daddy podcast when they interviewed Andrew Ference and it was just so great to hear intelligent hockey discussion.

You may have a point about the sense of "transparency" being a function of a diehard's perspective, but on your second point: I think we must be listening to two different Felgers, b/c the one I listen to, for all his flaws (and there's plenty), doesn't belittle or ridicule those whom he disagrees with.

See I just don't take those as examples of false pretenses. They're examples of stupidity perhaps, ignorance, boneheadednes, and at times, "takes" verging on the absurd (embracing it, even) for the sheer sake of provocation and ratings. His fraud consists in pushing opinions that he himself doesn't believe, not in pushing false credentials. Someone can no doubt say to me, "well one way or the other, you're admitting he's a fraud". "OK", I'd reply, "but only in that very narrow sense. And I consider that (pushing opinions one doesn't truly believe) to be more like fiction than fraud". Part of the implicit understanding between sports talk show host and listener is that the former will entertain. It's understood that, at times, that entertainment will be generated by contrarianism, playing devil's advocate, at times just plain throwing something out there to see if it sticks (or keeps people calling/listening). IMO to call Felger fraudulent is a bit like calling a novelist fraudulent for making stuff up. It misses the point of what his role is about. I don't look to Felger for substantive hockey insight. I just don't. Felger likes to talk about fights, rivalries, grudges, Julien's fourth-line infatuation, etc. Hockey as soap opera, in short (or "drama", as Artemis put it). For actual analysis of play on the ice, I look to people like Goucher, Dupont, Beers, etc. Or Canadian radio, if I want full immersion. Oh well, maybe I've just adjusted my expectations accordingly over time.

I agree 100% with this last point. I hated that (and other like instances).

By the way, feel free to YARM me all you want, seeing as how I am pretty much always correct on here.

So YARM is an homage one is obliged to bestow whenever they are in agreement with your ramblings?

Well, YARM, as that is frequently the case,

it's an acronym, explained twice above, said by Mazz when he agrees with MIKE Felger:

You're Absolutely Right, Mike.

I do not read every jot & tittle.

As Cam might say, F&M are in the rear-view mirror these days, so I didn't make the connection. Hence, YARM(IKE) = Everett Mike.

Have a fine weekend,

Listen, Plissken: I was "Escape From New York" when "Escape From New York" wasn't cool.
