Julian Edelman doesn't tend to get the credit and respect he deserves around the league, but one former player took notice in a recent ESPN segment, putting him ahead of some notable names which created some controversy.

Another reason why Sportstalk Radio has descended to the cesspool...

    Another reason why the conspiracy driven local sportstalk radio sucks, I find myself over time listening less and less.. from the rantings early in the morning, to Bertram spouting conspiracy theories while Zolak seldom interjects to the afternoon shows.. all are shadows of what they once were... very seldom informing, but always inflaming..

    This segment may take the prize...


    Tony Masserotti on Kyle Van Noy: “Oh, God. Last year he SUCKED. Please! And the year before he sucked even worse. It’s Two Degrees of Suck.”

    Mike Felger on Kyle Van Noy: “I don’t like him. … To me, it’s personal. I’ve never met him, but every time he opens his mouth I’m like ‘You are a tool!’ You are an ASS. Every time I hear him talk I’m like ‘Where did that attitude come from? You SUCK. And if it wasn’t for this team you’d be covering punts in Detroit. You SUCK! Where do you get that attitude from?'”

    And yet they get free exposure/advertising on Twitter and Patsfans whenever they say something stupid...like moths to a flame.

    Caring about what they say isn't worth the wear and tear your keyboard endured typing all this out. Not a dig at you, just a general philosophy.

    I haven't listened to Felger's show in 3 or so years... don't ever plan on ending the streak either

    Its ear cancer, stop listening to it and stop giving them publicity, then they'll be fired and go away

    They have nothing to talk about anymore because all our sports teams do is win.

    Maybe if Van Noy said, "I act the way I do for ratings," Maz and Felger would understand him better.

    Legitimately would not have known about this hawt taek if it hadn't been posted here. Not only do you guys listen to trolls on the radio that piss you off up there, but you make sure everyone else sees it, clicks on it, listens to it, and gives them further exposure. That's always made zero sense to me.

    It's funny. Before defamegate I listened to them religiously but now I rarely tune in. I've probably haven't listened to any Boston sports media for more than ten or twenty minutes over the last year or so. Just got tired of their schtick. It's all the same clickbait fodder hawt take bs.

    That's not a reason, that's just more evidence.

    The reason is that there are 1000% more people involved in covering sports than the prior era, when there were a dozen local sports writers, two local radio sports reporters, and three local TV sports reporters. They are all chasing advertising revenue, which means trying to say things to get sports fans riled up, so they will post on social media and internet message boards to get them more attention.

    I've never actually listened to sports talk radio, or talk radio in general. I've accidentally landed on a sports talk show every so often when trying to find music on the radio on car trips. Just a couple seconds of that sh it is enough to turn my stomach.

    But then, I barely pay attention to the news anymore. It's all useless bullsh it, as far as I'm concerned.

    I don't get it either. The most I'll do is tune in to NFL Radio on Sirius XM but I don't stay there for more than a couple of minutes. You can get everything you need about whatever team you follow online.

    If you ever read some of the stuff Dave Egan wrote about Ted Williams or what Phil Pepe said about Roger Maris, is on the same par as what those two assholes said about KVN- maybe even worse. The difference with those guys is at least they provided their audience insight and value.

    To your point, now there is just more of less.

    We can all agree EEI and the Hub provide zero value to the sports enthusiast except an opportunity to get emotional about something. As long as you listen to those knuckleheads in that frame of mind, its ok.

    Reiss - thoughtful takes
    Kyed - generally quick, accurate reporting; funny when dealing with hawt-take morons
    Howe - postgame stats for pressure, blocking, coverage
    Miguel - for accurate cap and rules info

    Lazar and couple others for tape breakdowns

    That's about it for me. Outside of Patsfans, of course.

    At this stage of my life, I try never to listen to ANYTHING that's negative or vitriolic. That includes talk radio, political ads, and, yes, the daily news. The only live TV I watch is NFL football. All my Patriots news starts from PatsFans and Mike Reiss.

    I find that this strategy, though a little weird, seems to work for me. I'm smiling a lot more during each day.

    You are just a tad older than me, it seems. The best times sports media ever gave me, in my entire life, was the Sunday Globe sports section in the 80's and early 90's. The stuff we get on an hourly basis now piled up all week and was shared in the huge columns of Gammons et al. I lived happily during the week with only news of scores, injuries, and exceptional games by an individual. Then happiness on Sunday morning.

    Perhaps this is a sentimental lens on all that, but I think the impact that sports (played by others) on my life back then was better than it is now.
