    Seriously, would like to tune in and hear about the stuff going on down in Foxboro, but all Im hearing is about Tiger , tiger and Tiger.... Enough already about Woods... I only tune in if there is big pats news, or brady interview, but its woods, and then the big mike lowell trade , not talking football during football season must be taboo...

    It is a current events show not predicated on just sports, so turn the dial or wait till ten......

    Cannot understand how they continue to be the highest rated morning show... they push just about every boundary. Try Sirius NFL...

    D&C are, quite simply, awful human beings.

    98.5 has been a huge disappointment. What a great opportunity they had in this market and they decided to go with a slew of radio hosts with outright animosities toward the local teams.

    Also the local radio stations have been so obsessed with this Woods story it's revolting. Does any sports fan really care anymore about how many women this guy has slept with?

    I'll second the Sirius NFL. You can listen to it online as well as in your car.

    I think you just answered your own question.

    Oh and if you live in MA, filling Teddy's seat is big news. (Unfortunately it's going to be filled by the empty pantsuit Martha Cokely).

    The only thing I don't like about them is when they talk about golf or 24 (a show I don't watch). Love playing 18 with my friends but don't like to hear about the pros.

    I think that Toucher and Rich are not a good option against Dennis and Callahan, the rest on 98.5 is ok...Except for Zolak, I think he is full of himself for a lifetime Bledsoe ball washer..

    I almost never listen, and when i do I look at eei as only being on air between 10a and 2p the rest of the time its garbage. And even then they pack about twenty or thirty minutes of commercials in an hour. IMO its almost not worth tuning in.

    They are the Beavis and Butthead of sports talk radio. Won't listen to them or the passengers in that clown car Glenn Ordway drives. Dale and Holley are bearable when they can manage to get a comment in between commercials.
    If I'm alone in my car, I listen, otherwise, I don't.

    Have you listened to Toucher and Rich. Those guys are more like B&B than The Fat Guy and the Forehead.

    You know why? Because they attract a lot of the same audience that Rush Limbaugh gets mid-morning. Not trying to turn this into a political discussion, but their Headlines segment is their most popular segment. That is because they keep most of their sports listeners, but add a lot of political junkies who lean to the Right (or to the Left and like to yell at the radio at Right Wing commentators).

    Fortunately or unfortunately there is no local access to 98.5 out here in WMass.

    Right on. It's more wide-ranging than the other WEEI shows. People don't get that.

    They DO get that. It's just that many blue staters here are offended by the existance of their rightward political slant and simply can't deal with it.

    Morning drive time radio is about general appeal to a broad audience, a chance for advertisers to reach lots of working people who earn money to spend and therefore a major money maker for the radio station. Unadulterated sports does not appeal to everyone.

    Used to tune in, don't anymore. Commercials with useless blather in between.

    Right, I think it's that people don't agree with Callahan's politics. I do.

    Re: OT- Can Dennis and Callahan ever talk Sports

    If I tuned in Howie Carr and he proceded to spend 2 hours talking about Tiger Woods and the Mike Lowell Trade I would be pissed. Keeping politics out of this debate, I have a real problem with a sports radio station that doesn't place actual sports discussion at the top of thier priority list.
