    Good – Minihane was completely out of line.

    Plus Erin Andrews is really hot…o_O

    I look forward to seeing other advertisers leaving WEEI very shortly.

    The management actually BACKED this clown right up until Fox pulled the plug. How stupid/backwards can a station be?

    NESN dumped the Dennis and Callahan show too. They informed WEEI they we're not going to air the show when the contract expires.

    Kirk was full of himself and got a big head quick. I bet there are a few people who work at weei that are happy to see this happen to him. I bet Salk is jumping for joy over this and the guy who did the mid day show with Lou.

    I read NESN is also down with morning show once the contract runs out.

    Kirk is a train wreck at best on air.

    The ultimate irony to me was Minihane criticizing Andrews' looks/weight. He must live in a house without mirrors. Sadly, Minihane was once promising. Once he went with Dennis and Ku Klux Kallahan he came down with Stockholm Syndrome. What you resist, you become.

    This x1,000.

    There are jokes you can say on air and jokes that you can't. But to knock Erin Andrews, who honestly, is clearly good at what she does, is completely out of line in either scenario.

    It is a Boston sports radio show. It used to be the only show in town, but has been failing something awful of late. They are getting killed by the Sports Hub which is new station in town with younger talent. Weei has too much old talent that can only talk baseball, the only good sports show host they have is Holly. If your a die hard Pats fan than the Gresh and Zo show is what you want to listen to. They go into the X's and O's about football. They go into detail about football and I like listening to them.

    I wouldn't go that far. But Minihane surely could've criticized her work without getting personally insulting.

    Honestly, there isn't much to chose between the two stations. Every idiot on EEI has a counterpart on 98.5. 98.5 has the absolutely insufferable Felger and Maz, Adam Jones, etc. Gresh and Zo are decent during football season because at least they know something about the game, appear to have actually watched the team (unlike Felger) and don't have an agenda or an axe to grind like so many of the others do.

    Who the hell is Minihan?

    What has he done, in his ENTIRE life, to be criticizing a girl who has slowly worked her way up the ranks as a sideline reporter?

    what a fracking jackhole.

    Seriously I don't think i've read anything written by this stooge, and the best that hes accomplished is being a third fiddle stooge to the worst sports radio show i have EVER heard, a show so bad i actually chose to listen to crap like lady gaga on my drives on the pike.

    What a piece of garbage.

    Agreed. I've never seen a sideline reporter I've been impressed with. At least not in the NFL. He was obviously looking for attention with his rant and got it.

    Yeah I hate Erin Andrews. She isn't at all good at what she does.

    Pam Oliver is the best woman's sideline person I know of. her or Doris Burke.

    Andrews is a bimbo.

    This is all I ever see about Felger and Mazz. complete bashing. but they get great ratings on the show. Their job is act like clowns. I guarantee they producers tell them to push the crap they do just to piss people off so they listen more. Whatever they are doing works and compared to the sports talk down here in FL, they are head and shoulders above even with the crap they pull

    He may have been out of line - but he is totally right.

    Erin Andrews did not get her job because of her knowledge of the sports world or the insightful questions she asks in interviews. When you get past the eye candy aspect, what you have left is an atrocious mediot. She humiliated herself on a pretty regular basis during last year's World Series. I saw no improvement over the course of the football season.

    Erin Andrews - Good Looks = Unemployed
