Most, sports media are dinosaurs, dead and do not know it yet, they have been replaced by this board (and others like it) - better information, better analysis, real fan opinions, etc...

GMFB and most of the NFL talk shows are more variety show than anything else - skits, singing and dancing  - unwatchable unless you like SOAPs

Exactly this.

FAN has been great for all these years because the hosts and their opinions have always been honest.  This half-assed attempt by Beningo to play the victim and act all incensed was clearly staged, it was all faked for the sake of ratings and post-broadcast clicks. 

Boomer and Gio went so far as to advertise the upcoming Beningo open before it was even broadcast.  Social media is destroying sports radio already, they don't need any help like this to put them under.

Social media is destroying everything.

I don't get how anyone can listen to sports talk radio. It's mind-numbingly stupid. Even Francesa, who IMO despite his arrogance is the only guy that's truly knows what he's talking about, is unlistenable.

I have always thougth that the Jets are treated differently by the media than any other team in the NFL because they are the only team that does not dominate their home market.  The Giants are the old, established and more successful franchise with the bigger fanbase.  I really think this impacts the way we are covered.  If you are covering the Jets, and you rely on fair, balanced reporting, your are followed by 40% - 45% of your market.  If you are outrageous, over the top and overly critical, you will attract more than just Jet fans.  It is what it is and not likely to change soon.

The Giants always have a stable owner who knows and love football, they would had never pull this crap hiring Gase instead of the obvious choice McCarthy.  We had terrible owners who treat this team as their personal hobby.   It is always the same sh*t move with the Jets.  If I was a Jets fan and have a voice in the media, I too will be overly critical of this mundane franchise.  Giants fans in the media are the adult, right?  Let the Giants make stupid move after stupid move for 50 years and lest see what happens with some of their fans in the media.

I am not suggesting that the Jets or any other team should be immune to criticism from the press.  And I have no problem with the media being critical of a team.  They should not be homers.  When a team underperforms, loses double digit games 3 straight seasons, misses playoffs for 8 straight, they should be subject to criticism.  Maybe its just personal preference, but I prefer to read/follow media that I think are fair and balanced in their approach and offer reasoned and researched opinions, and if those opinions are critical, so be it.

What exactly is today's fan base? You have your opinion just like Joe Beningo and the many others. What is this new reality you speak of?

 

Full-fireman Ed? Again what does that mean in this context?

That column is toilet paper. Beningo is an idiot, but he’s not always wrong. Mehta and Costello really did have a vendetta against McCarthy. The fact that that’s a lunatic accusation doesn’t make it any less true. Meanwhile this dipsh*t is calling the new coach “Mr. Gase” and calling for his fainting couch because someone had the gall to criticize the Johnson brothers. Give me a break.

I like some of the ex-players on NFL Radio.  Ross Tucker, for example, has some good moments.  The show with Pat Kirwan and Jim Miller as well.  They sometimes say dumb things or miss points, but overall, they seem to be fairly un-biased towards or against a particular team.  And when callers are stupid, they usually point it out and move on quickly.  I only listen when I'm driving so I don't get overloaded on any particular show.

And I am shocked to be saying this, but Cowherd has grown on me a bit.  I used to think he was completely useless.  Now I think he's only about half useless.  Big jump up.

Yes. I like the thinkers and the the guys who know the schemes and realize what may have gone wrong on a particular play. 

The guys that like the human interest stories bother me and when their voices raise to screeching levels they need to be shut off.

That said. Benigo went to The Connecticut school of broadcasting. How about that Bro?

The vast conspiracy theory frankly is the emperor with no clothes. To argue that Mehta actually influenced the Jets decision-making is about as realistic as thinking that JetNation was a factor.  Dumb and dumber.

Joes got two fake hips and just wants to see the Jets win at this point. He’s irrational, but In this case, he’s right. Adam Gase? Come on. He’ll be fired in two years.

we'll have to see what gase does.  he checked many of the boxes i would have been looking for.  but when maneesh tries to argue that the nfl has passed mccarthy by is that because he's 55?  is the bellichicken something north of 65?  wasn't parcells 55 when he took the jets job?  it sounds like age discrimination.  and just what do the younger guys know?  remember when pete carroll used to have his pick up basketball games with the team?  and didn't rex bring the team to places like dave and busters?  i mean just where does maneesh think the nfl is going?

I don't think it's age discrimination.  He looks at McCarthy as a guy with a team that has regressed in the past few years.  McCarthy was not a slam dunk candidate in any way.

Jets fans lead the league in playing the victim and Beningo has gone full-Fireman Ed, struggling to deal with the new reality.

Neither represent today's fanbase and need to go away already.

Benigno called into Roberts’ podcast today and said he’s warming to the idea of Gase, especially if he hires Gregg Williams as his DC.  His negativity can make for interesting radio (mostly for the humor of it) but he really did go over the line when interviewing Mehta.  I’m no fan of Mehta btw (his “wait until tomorrow for the big news” when the “big news” was “Jamal Adams is friendly with Michael Jordan” was a true embarrassment).  But Mehta at least conducts himself like a professional when being interviewed, even when the interview consists of baseless attacks on his character.

Grow up and get on board. All of you.

Getting on board isn't the point. No one is telling everyone to tow the line and enjoy the hire... This article is all about HOW you disagree and criticize. Benigno chose to be incredibly venomous and frankly downright cruel with how he decided to handle this, and it's silly.  We can disagree without attacking people's character and making nonsense up.

Let me get this Mehta was acting as The two clowns personal hit man, sabotaging a great coach chance to be the next Jets HC, at the same time he was excusing Gase mounting problem in Miami.  This guy was not fair with one coach and he should be pad on the back great job.  Yes, I’m good with Benigno ripping him on the air calling his work a hit job.

I always hear/read about the New York media like it's some mythical creature. 

From what I can gather, they appear to be nothing more than walking, talking, click bait machines.  Hot take specialist in the truest sense.  The lowest form of media.

It is pretty bad in the media.  But positioning the media against two idiots almost makes them almost look good.  How many games have they seen Gase coach?  He beats the Jets all the time. I doubt they watch the Dolphins or have had any interest int hem the past few seasons.  U dib;t tune in looking for Ryam Tannehill.  How many times int he last few years have they roasted doofus  MM for getting Doug Marrone (who they hated at the time) un-hired?  Or for myriad other blatantly anti Jet  articles?  Yes now he is in their pockets?  They are fans. Strange fans.  I know this, because logic is foreign to their natures.  They are imitating the Fat Man.  Screaming down guests for ratings

When Joe goes Roberts will have to find a reputation. Being Joe's ass man has not served him well.

I dont think McCarthy was a bad choice. I just think he insisted on his tepid staff coming with him and I do not blame the Jets for objecting to some of them.  Look at the dreck TB brought in. Get some names on your coaching staff.  Now no good OC is going to serve Gase. No point in that.  But a good DC and a good line coach would be great

I listened to Bengingo talk about the Gase thing and even argue with Manish. I had to shut it off because he sounded like a dumb guido arguing with some guy in a club.

Heres where the woe is me nonsense comes in.

The Giants wouldnt have hired Gase?  McCarthy was that clear cut the guy to hire?  Says, who, you?  Says no one else apparently, he didnt ever get another interview.

The Giants? Who hired McAdoo?  Who had him bench Manning and then when there was a backlash from the fans attacked McAdoo and fired him?  Who have history of great hires like Handley?  Who refused to interview Belichick?  Who were the league laughingstock?  Had the league threaten to take their ownership away if they didnt hire George Young?  Had fans boycott the team at one point?

I'll tell you this much, when the Jets were the up and coming team in the late 70s early 80s and the Giants werent the George Young Giants, the Jets were no ones little brother.

Funny but their history isnt as glorious as some want to make it.
