    No actually they do not....it was all the sports stations that in the leans years did NOT WANT the Patriots at all...so it is to WBCN's credit that they have had the PATS and will have them..

    Boston is a Red Sox town, and the Red Sox just made the playoffs. Just be happy you're not hungering for Bruins talk....

    What we need are pink Pats hats.
    Thousands of them...
    And a color guy whose nickname will end in -dawg to make him "cool"
    then we can setup a nation on his/hers personal web site and become rich off that
    once we establish that, I think we'll get fair radio airtime

    but wait a minute... I'm VERY thankful there are no pats pink hat nation fans...

    Piss people off??? Hell NO! Man, you're right on! I've said this for years. BCN isn't even a good station...for music!

    Yes, I'd LOVE to see WEEI get the contract.

    Anyone know when the contract is up?

    As long as we don't become pink hat nation.
    I think things will be ok.

    Re: I'm sorry to post this....

    Which reminds me of something else....

    This is just my OP, but I'd like to get others as well.

    I'm sexist when it comes to being a football fan...there, I said it!

    I don't want to hear a woman announcing a football game. I can't imagine hearing "...OH, and he's NAILED just shy of the goal line" coming from a woman's voice...is it just me?

    If I want to have a good football discussion, it has to be with men even though I know there are some women who know their football.

    And if I'm gonna watch my team in the BIG GAME, I prefer watching it with other men...men...men...men...men...men...IS IT JUST ME?

    Re: I'm sorry to post this....

    As rule I think you're correct.

    But my wife is a huge fan, very versed in the game and as passionate as I am.

    on the other hand

    I've gone to Pats games with buddies of mine who spend 2/3 of the time in the beer line and bathroom.

    LOL. I had just read the thread and was listening at lunch when I heard the e-mail from "slag", or at least that is what I thought they said. I had to get back to what I was doing but found it kind of funny.

    Re: I'm sorry to post this....

    I don't usually do stuff like this, but I was wicked ornery this morning.

    So here it is:

    Can you recommend a good sports radio station to listen to today that might discuss the Patriots and football since I believe they are playing in a national marquee game tonight.

    Thanks

    Re: I'm sorry to post this....

    I agree. Nothing annoys me more than that lady who does the radio broadcast for the yankees.

    Maybe it has something to do with how much i hate the Yankees... but still it annoys me even more that it is a woman for some reason.

    I cant imagine one doing a football game. :eek:

    Re: I'm sorry to post this....

    The men men men men part of your post has me a little creeped out, but as long as we are going to go down this slippery slope about male versus female announcers, I will throw in my two cents worth.

    Football is about people hitting people in the mouth and snot flying around and bloody elbows and kicking and scratching people in the pile-up. I personally cannot stand the way football fans are becoming soft and politically correct about the sport itself, and I definitely don't want a soft touch to the reporting. I don't find the sideline reporting of the women to be particularily interesting, and I don't want football to become gossipy (although our politically sensitive media is already making it that way).

    But I don't rule out that there are some women who really understand the game of football. My wife gets the fact that these 300 pound guys are hitting each other on every play. She likes when Rodney lays somebody out in the middle of a game. She gets the idea that football is a bloodsport. She doesn't try to pretend that it is some kind of politically sensitive sport that reflects the current trends in the media. If she announced football, she would be like "Yeah, that was a hard hit, that sent a message".

    So I think that it takes the right kind of women or man to be a football announcer. But honestly, when you see the weak, sniveling metrosexual crew of Sunday Night Football, it is not a stretch to think that there are women that could do a much better job. When you get a bunch of sensitive whiny crybabies together, it really doesn't fit with the game of football.

    The basic problem is that football is a sport where virtually 100% of the values are based on fighting and conquering. Some women understand this and relate to typically male, aggressive feelings, some women don't. A lot of MEN clearly don't get what football is really about, and that includes a lot of fans who post at websites. They just think that because they are politically correct and sensitive and metro that somehow the sport of football should be seen or understood on their terms. The truth is that there is really no place for a soft touch in the actual game of football, so the reporting should reflect what is going on in the game, IMO.

    I can't stomach the NFL's need to pretend that these football players are outstanding members of our community. Most of them are highly paid, hyper-aggressive people with a mean streak. A large percent of them would be street punks if they didn't have this structure in their life. They are paid to hit each other.

    Anyway, I guess what pisses me off more than anything is men or women who try to view, explain, or talk about football in a soft, politically correct manner. That ain't football. The game has not changed in 100 years, and the players are still the same type players. It is the media that is trying to force soft values on the game, where they don't belong.

    I don't care who talks about football as long as they keep it real, and on-topic, and unbiased.
