Adam Reilly has a piece in the Boston Phoenix this week looking at the recent expansion by several sports media outlets here in Boston, with 98.5 The SportsHub coming online, Comcast SportsNet expanding its on-air and web presence and even The Boston Globe shoring up its sports staff:

Goal rush! How long can Boston’s frenetic sports-media explosion last?

Toward the end, Reilly looks at what could bring an end to this unprecedented influx of sports coverage here in Boston – when the Boston teams stop winning championships and go back to just being average and below-average franchises.

  1. the “explosion” is already over for me. I still love my sports but as far as the SPORTS MEDIA goes?….I don’t know when it happened exactly. I just know that one day I woke up and all of a sudden I was COMPLETELY BORED with listening to or reading anything from the Sports hacks. I mean really, 99% of what they put out there is complete crap…..Who cares what they think? Most of the time it’s not “what they think” anyway….it’s all a bunch of contrived garbage in order to “inspire debate” and “create ratings” and that goes for the POSITIVE stuff they write/talk about as well as the NEGATIVE.

    All in all there aren’t many other things in life that are a bigger waste of time than listening to sportstalk radio or reading what these numbnuts write. It’s all about THE GAMES for me. Not these clowns TALKING and WRITING about the games. When you get right down to it the only things that count in the standings are THE GAMES…..what does it matter what these guys yak about?…..Sportstalk radio is noise pollution at it’s finest.
