LOL. First Francessa and now Kay. I'm starting to agree with some posters. We're never happy. We complain about no media exposure, get it, and still complain. I'm not a fan of either myself, but this has to be seen as good. Besides, Kay will have LaGreca(sp?) to prep him with some decent questions.

I don't mind Francessa really. He's not the best but his show is well constructed and he does decent interviews most of the time. I just don't like Kay even as Yankees fan. Lagreca is good though, I forgot about him so hopefully he's doing most of the questions. Kay is just brutal in general with any sports, especially when he talks Knicks. I never said the interview is going to be bad, who knows, it can be good.

Don't know if this was posted before, but here is his full apology:

For me to put them under a microscope in that type of setting, at the Classic, was wrong. I tainted the Classic with my mouth and I shouldn’t have so I apologize to everybody involved.

Wow, some genuine exposure. First, Mike "da sports pope" Franchesa with Hank and now Michael Kay with Torts. So benevolent of these sports radio blowhards to offer air space to our hockey team. What next?

I like Torts, please don't get me wrong, but this is someone who talks the talk and can't walk the walk. Extremely hypocritical considering the short leash he had on a certain former #16... I know this isn't the right thread for that, but this is the first time I've seen his apology and quite frankly it comes off piss poor given his treatment of a former player who would be fined, suspended and banished from the NHL if he had "embarrassed" the team and the NHL the way Tortorella supposedly did on the league's biggest stage.

Worse than saying what Tortorella said when he did is apologizing for it afterwards. He said exactly what he meant and he meant everything he said. Own it and don't bend over to save face with Bettman. The calls and non-calls late in the game were a freaking disgrace!

Sauer will get a spot when he is ready.

Eminger deserves ice time.

EC hasn't taken opportunities of his ice time - great talented kid.

Torts is honest, and straight forward. If I was a player, I'd love him. Just tells you how it is. Sounds like a good guy. HBO has really humanized him after his reputation from post game interviews.

Solid interview. we now know Wolski is ready but there isn't a spot open for him at the moment, and it's a good decision. If one of Mitchell or Hagelin fall off I can see him taking their spot, but I don't see Hagelin falling off, so it'll have to be Mitchell at some point. It's a great dilemma to have.

It's not a matter of saving face with Bettman. Whether we agree with his initial comments or not it did make everybody look bad. I'm sure he was told to make that apology. Maybe he refuses and makes a stand. Then what? He questioned the integrity of the game, not just the refs. He did what he had to do. Is it hypocritical considering his comments of "He who shall be banished"? Yup. But that doesn't mean sometimes you have to eat crow and move on.

This is all the Rangers getting their players and coaches on trying to gain momentum for the next couple of months. I'll take it. Rather here these guys then talk about the Yankees offering Edwin Jackson 18 million a year.

Yes and I agree to an extent, but the point you're missing is that he has the opportunity to speak his mind, eat crow/apologize and then move on. He was not giving that same right to a certain player, fair or unfair, based on his "reputation". If that player had made those comments, he would be suspended if not by the team directly, then by the league for a long, long time. Right or wrong?
