Enough with the Mike Felger Pity Party! Enough with the Tim Benz pity party! Enough with the Gary Tanguay pity party!
I’m not sure where the basis of the pity party comes from other than here:

Amazing. Gary Tanguay web articles are now used as show fodder.
All of this while the hosts who spent hours speculating every trade/release possibility and coming in with crazy theories about rifts between the coach and quarterback are whining because they are now being called on their comments. They’re playing semantics – I never said Brady should be benched/traded, I was just ASKING THE QUESTION. We’re being attacked! We never meant they would actually trade Brady, just asking IF they should! I WAS RIGHT AT THE TIME.
Then they turn and call Patriots fans sensitive. The irony should not be lost there.
I’m glad that my personal listenership to this garbage has dwindled to practically nothing. I’ll listen to D&C&M for periods in the morning, then Gresh and ZO, and back to Dale and Holley in the afternoon. Thats about it, and my trigger finger is pretty quick.
I’ll also say this for about the millionth time, it feel like. I don’t have any problems with legitimate criticism of players, teams, franchises, etc. The problem comes when people rush to judgment, eager to be the first to declare the game, season, era, QB, coach DONE usually in the most vociferous and obnoxious victory-lap-taking manner.
They’re proven to be dead wrong, year after year, but it deters them not in the least. They know that each day brings a day closer the actual end of the Brady and Belichick era. Someday they will be right!
The group that enjoys consuming the non-stop creating of fictional yet plausible storylines to be screamed out each day and evening on radio and television eat it up and can’t get enough. I don’t get it.
Sports media: Early reports on Bob Neumeier are encouraging -Chad Finn has an update on the health of the long time sports anchor and reporter.
Be very leery of folks like Dan Shaughnessy pumping up an acquisition of Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval. I can guarantee you this is being do to set up Sandoval as an out-of-shape guy who doesn’t work hard and was given big money. Regardless of what the facts actually are, you can bet on a few references to Joe Offerman.
ComcastSportsNet, in conjunction with the Boston Celtics, will debut a 30-minute TV special on Celtics rookie Marcus Smart, giving viewers and in-depth look at the Point Guard’s journey to the NBA both on and off the basketball court. The special, titled The Education of Marcus Smart, will air at 7:30PM on Saturday, November 8th following Celtics Pregame Live (7PM) and just prior to the Celtics vs. Bulls matchup (8PM).
The Education of Marcus Smart, narrated by CSN’s Celtics play-by-play voice Mike Gorman, outlines Marcus’s journey from his childhood in Texas through current day as a rookie Point Guard for the Boston Celtics. The show illustrates how Smart has overcome adversity both on and off the court from a very early age. Growing up just outside of Dallas, Texas, basketball was always part of Marcus’s life. His oldest brother Todd – who was diagnosed with cancer before Marcus was even born — was a local high school basketball legend and Marcus’s hero. After an 18 year battle with cancer, Todd passed away, leaving his 9-year old brother Marcus inspired to follow in his footsteps and commit all of his energy to the game of basketball.
