    Ok. It's January. My team, which is has won three out of the last four SuperBowls, is in the playoffs. With a Saturday night home game TOMORROW.

    So, I figure, what the heck? I'll flip on the local sports radio station for a little football talk and start getting a little "pumped 'n jacked".

    What do I hear? Discussion of trade rumors about center fielders and shortstops in frickin' BASEBALL.

    Just shoot me now.

    It's Boston, it's Boston, it's Boston. Hey about 25 years ago, +/- , there was talk about the Patriots moving to Birmingham, Alabama. Now, they're the model team taking into account all pro sports. The Red Sox have looked pretty goofy this offseason, but they're still the favorite back there, aren't they?

    WEEI is a JOKE.

    ESPN is better in Boston.

    The Red Sox are even MORE OF A JOKE.

    I won't get started on that one though....

    I live in Tewksbury and both ESPN Radio signals come in like crap for me. So I have no choice but to listen to WEEI.

    That surprises me, 'cuz ESPN Boston 1400 is transmitted from Lowell. You can get it in your car, can't you? I think it also streams over the 'net.

    I get it in my car (that's actually the only place I listen to the radio), but it comes it really crackly like it's a weak signal.

    Can't get the station in Seacoast NH either. Just 'EEI, which like the Globe I cannot stand.

    Really? I didn't know that EEI was a Sox station. Rumor has it that the Globe covers them a lot too. This is earth-shattering news!

    Just turned EEI on after the 2:eek:o PM break and the first three names mentioned [drum roll] Manny, Ortiz, Damon[/crash]. They sound like a sewing circle talking about the Red Sox soap opera.

    It's worse! All my friends back in NE only wanna talk loser Red Sox. It's like they don't even know they've got a football team with more character and better management right up the road. I was glad to see the Sox with the series but the front office there is a joke. They try to spend like Steinbrenner but don't have the brains to match...

    I'm with you. EEI just SUUUUUUUUUUCCCKs. Turn it on this morning, figuring to hear some Patriots talk, buuuuuutttt NNNOOOOOOOOOOOO, what are they doing, but arguing with each other and some caller about FRIGGIN IRAQ. If I want to hear about IRAQ I'll listen to that fat B*stard Howie Car or N friggin PR.

    On top if it all Will Michael HOlley just SHUT UP for one minute and take a breath and stop talking over dale arnold. I can't stand Holley.

    I can't believe we have another thread complaining about the Red Sox. These posts are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

    Vic Carucci from NFL.com was even complaining about it ON WEEI... saying he couldn't believe the lack of media coverage/interest in the Pats right now, compared to the Days Of Our Lives on Yawkey Way.

    Especially considering that the Pats are in the playoffs and the Sox aren't even playing... Boston is such an idiot-parochial-one-horse-town when it comes to sports.

    WEEI devoted a bunch of coverage to the game this week.

    I'm a devoted Pats fan, but hot stove kicks ass!

    Ha, you're right, I don't have one, but it doesn't bother me.

    I'd suggest, overall though, turning off the radio b/c it's probably never going to change. I'm pretty sure you need a room temperature IQ to host a radio show these days.

    The Red Sox front office is finally beginning to recognize this perception is a problem and have scheduled a press conference for 8pm tomorrow to discuss how they can be more sensitive to Patriots fans.

    Not to keep on inciting anyone, but Dale Arnold said today that the front office of the Patriots think WEEI talks too much Sox.........AND that the Sox front office thinks WEEI talks too much Pats. Not sure if I buy this, but it is what it is....

    I was listening between 12pm-3pm and I thought it was pretty evenly divided between Pats and Sox with three calls or so about the Bruins.

    First, watch the stuck up snots from the media inside 128 squirm when we win our third straight super bowl.
    Second, someone from outside of that whole inbred mess eminating out of Yucky Way needs to start an all sports broadcast to compete with these clowns.
    Third, everyone buy the Herald and boycott the other rag in town.

    Hello! That's the problem. Evenly divided? In January? When the Pats are competing for a championship?

    Let's review the bidding. 100% baseball from February through December. Then "evenly divided" during the NFL playoffs?

    I heard Felger go off last week on TV. Saying do we have to discuss every time the Red Sox front office sneezes? I laughed out loud literally.

    This is exactly it. And God forbid you try and talk Patriots on a show designated for the Red Sox. But on Patriots Monday? Talk all the baseball you want.

    I'm just sick to death of baseball.

    IF you listen a lot there is lots of good stuff, however there is tooo much RS stuff, they all go on and on about this. A caller from the Cape called on Thurs and confronted them as the only station with a team in the NFL playoffs who would talk baseball, they all hummed and hawed and then justified what they do. Even yesterday caught the beginning of the big show with Smerlas and DeOssie and they started talking about the RS. The Pats will always be second on that show and that is the reality of this powerhouse, I agree the stuff with Boomer and Esaison is good, but it is few and far between.

    Dear all WEEI complainers,

    This is the 21st century.

    You have choices.

    Get XM or Sirius.

    OR JUST CHANGE THE STATION.

    I have loved sports talk radio since the days of the Sports Huddell...Sunday nights were the best.

    I keep trying to listen to WEEI but I am reaching my breaking point. I listen less and I am almost done with them.

    Yestserday Theo was on the Big Show to promote Hot Stove, Cool Music. He said two things...I am here to promote the benefit and to talk about the Patriots because they are in the playoffs. He said he modeled a lot of what he did after the Patriots and he realizes how hard it is to repeat. Last year when he was on during the playoffs he also said he wanted to talk about the Patriots...he said it didn't want to divert attention from them. He wasn't just trying to avoid talking about his situation.

    Even Theo gets it.

    Of course Glenn Ordway switched the subject to the Sox. That was enough for me.
