Francessa about to do an hour on the Rangers 3.00 PM

I know a lot of people like to talk about the mainstream media hockey coverage we get in NY. Well Mike is about to do a long hockey segment, let's see how this goes.

And I suppose we can put anything media related here in this thread.

How about that. The Rangers win a playoff series and suddenly Mr Expert makes his biannual discovery that hockey is a sport. Don't do us any favors.

I dont understand why but for some reason Torts LOVES to speak to Mike. It's hard to believe that the same man who has those post-game interviews can laugh whenever Francessca even starts talking.

FWIW, he at least admits he doesn't know a lot about the game.

I have to give credit where credit is due. WFAN has made an effort to cover Hockey more this year. Fatcessa has been spending time covering the Sport. In the past he'd rather cover table tennis before Hockey.

Love the coverage. It has been notably increased on all shows by all hosts the last month and a half, Islanders included. I call every morning around this time, always talk about hockey. About to go on in a few, actually, to talk with Tony.

Haha Mad Dog is awesome. He'd talk fast and then slow down to one word sentences and then back to going fast again. And I always remember him saying "gotta give him credit" all the time....something like this is how I always think of Mad Dog talking:

"I know what you're sayin der Mikey but ya gotta give credit where credit is due. He. Did. Step. Up. In. Da. Big. Game. Gotta give credit. Mikey he's da main reason da knicks are in da game at dat point and credit where credit is due Mikey"



BTW, the best part of Francesca's show isn't actually anything he says, it's when people call in and mess with him. He never has a sense of humor and gets so defensive it's hilarious.

Doggie called him "Michael"

Carton does a great doggie impression.

Damn that's right, it's the fast way he says Michael that makes it even better. I haven't listened to Mad Dog in a while, which I should because I have XM in my car. I only listen to two stations though, NHL network radio and Opie and Anthony.

Last time Torts was on (that I know of anyway), Frencessa showed off his ignorance once more. After the interview he did calls, and one of the callers went off at Torts, calling for him to be fired, he cited the constant line juggling and the handling of Kreider as the main reasons.

Francessa didn't sound like he had any idea about who Kreider was and instead started a very general rant: "Hockey is a playoff sport, I don't care about the regular sesason" etc.

He also said something along the lines of: "How often have we seen the eight seed win the Stanley Cup? All the time!". When I think that has never happned before LA did it.

Other than the Kings, the only seed lower than fourth to win the cup was the 95 fifth seeded Devils.

Torts is very kind and respectful to the radio media whether it's Kay or Franscesca. Probably because they aren't on the beat and hounding him every day.

For hockey on mainstream NY Radio Stations (not including Jim and Eddie from Blueshirt Underground who do a beyond amazing job covering the Rangers on a weekly basis and have had some great guests over the years) the following people know hockey;

1) Don Lagreca
2) Dave Rothenberg
3) Steve Sommers
4) Joe and Evan
5) Tony Paige

Lagreca and Rothenberg have ties to the Rangers and hockey is an active part of their shows.

Sommers knows hockey very well but in the last fifteen years, hockey has become an occasional segment or more like a change of pace on his show. It's mostly baseball or football. It was more hockey in the the early-mid 90s when he'd be doing the overnight and come on after the Rangers.

Beningo and Evan know hockey well but because they have a daytime show, hockey is barely covered anymore.

Since Tony Paige has taken over the overnight duties, he does talk some hockey. He did a great job during the playoffs last year, and had Andrew Gross on during the past series. While he admits hockey isn't his most knowledgeable sport, he knows more than Franscesca.

I like Boomer, but his show with Carton sucks!!!! BIG TIME!!! I tune in every morning and all they talk about is knix and just fool and gag around the entire time. At least Mike has a straight to the point sports show. When he does talk hockey at least he does a good job because he gets guys like Michelleti and Mguire or Olchyk to talk.
