    I grew up with guys who got into fights over yankee vs Mets announcers. Kiner, Nelson and Murphy vs rizzuto, white and messer.

    I loved Rizzuto, White and Messer.  But was pretty sure that Rizzuto would be gone after the seventh inning,  (That huckleberry.)

  2. I think they placed the jets about right.  With better QB play we could be higher.  But that is a horribly disorganized podcast.  Fundamental rule:  If you are going to do lists, do them in some kind of order.  Seemed like they were jumping all over the place, stream of consciousness.

    Yeah, people are “fine” with peaceful protests as long as said protest is in the dark corner where it affects no one and can’t be seen. Dudes kneel for a national anthem and they’re “shoving it in people’s faces.” Yeah. 

    I never have understood why Americans feel the need to have the national anthem at every single sporting event even down to high school level anyway. I think it’s so weird. I stopped standing for them years ago. 

    Historically, we didn't really have it on a regular basis until World War II.  And for some reason, we never got rid of it at the beginning of games after the war.  Might be more patriotic to save it for special occasions as virtually no one is singing it and people are having conversations, spitting and drinking beer during it.  I think the sports leagues like it not because of patriotism but because (except in the post season) it gives them further opportunities to show commercials.

    I don't either. Unless they are shoved in my face when I am trying to watch a game.

    So if he kneels, that’s too much for you?  Or wears stupid socks?  Dopey as it might be, that’s his business, as far as I’m concerned.

    Raiders and Davis trying to accomplish two things with this strategic marketing ploy. 

    1.  Prove that they still don't care if the masses or the league object to the controversial moves they make. 

    2.  Davis is making good use of a media-made character to exercise the ghost of Chucky.

    But... These Raiders are a cheap imitation of the historic Raiders in every respect.

    My statement here has zero bearing on CK's politics and everything to do with his game on the field.  Even before the politics entered the CK story, his game was full of holes.  Now that he has been out of the game for years, he is twice as useless on the field. 

    This is marketing and politics.  


    He was definitely better than many backups in the league. It’s been a long time, though. 

  6. A cherry 1976 Honda Civic with a wooden steering wheel and stick-shift.  I loved that car.  May have been a 78 but I think it was a 76.  I'm 6'4" so I got a lot of comments climbing in and out of it.  Mine had the steering wheel on the other side.  I guess this is a British version.

    Papa will drop any commitment for the NYG. Do we know that to be true for Wischusen? I just think Bob W is getting too big for this role and want a more dedicated voice of the Jets. 

    This is beyond silly. They all have other gigs.  The other jobs don't affect his performance at all.

  8. He’s broadcasting NHL and NCAA football and basketball for ESPN. Shouldn’t the voice of the Jets be exclusively focused on the Jets? You don’t see Bob Papa doing non Giants stuff. 

    Yes you do. Papa does golf. He does boxing. He does Thursday night games. He does Sirius NFL radio. I’m not sure you know how this works.
