  1. Sorry but Felger is the type of person who thinks they know football but doesn’t. I don’t trust or like his opinions in any format. At least he’s got high self-esteem I guess.


  2. No love for Hockey East? It was an insane final weekend of the regular season and there’s going to be some great tourney action starting next weekend.


  3. I’m surprised that Felger’s act has lasted this long. He’s been doing the same schtick for years……up is down, black is white, fast is slow, anything to be contrary. He is totally predictable and boring. His lack of basevall and basketball knowledge is unthinkable for someone who hosts a sports talk show.


  4. Felger has been going downhill for years but, for me, he really jumped the shark when he wrote that column for the Herald two years ago stating that Tomase’s Super Bowl “walkthrough” story was only wrong on a “semantic” level, because the Patriots’ videostaff had actually “monitored” the Rams’ walkthrough as a result of their presence in the building that day, even though they didn’t videotape it (which, as we all know, is what the story clearly said they did–videotape it).

    Talk about pathetic, CYA “journalism.”

    I’m still surprised that Felger didn’t catch more heat for that ridiculous column/argument.


  5. True point Tony – Buckley, Karen G and all the heraldites of the time got into lock step a la the Thin Blue Line when a cop messes up.
