    Say what you want about Mazz and Felger....they engage the fans.

    Remember, these folks are not experts per say but entertainers. Their job is to walk up to a bees nest and smack it with a stick and see what happens.

    Ordway will resurface somewhere...but he needs to leave Steve and Fred behind as they did him no favors.

    I grew very tired of his radio thuggery years ago - between blowing up callers, Deossie threatening to meet guys in parking lots and Smerlas yelling at callers...glad it's done. Should of been gone years ago, and once they faced real competition it was. The other guy Pete "the meat" Sheppard was another fool that got ousted years ago. I won't miss them pumping Davios, or their cigar shops either. These three clowns even got their Patriot season tickets revoked when they started charging another 600 bucks for their New England tailgate parties by including a ticket in the package. And I'll never forget Steve Deossie's act after the Giants beat us in the Super Bowl, yet there he was back on Glenn's show in the fall. The good old boy network ends Friday.

    There is a reason why people stopped listening.

    Yes, exactly this. The radio is no different than what we do here, except no audio!

    The show survives by it's fan base, not listening to the 3 of them bloviating non-stop.

    Actually, Sheppard was rehired and has a weekend gig if I'm not mistaken.  Interesting how listening tastes vary.

    I didn't think the Jonathan Kraft thing was all that rough. The point was how the Jets had so much Talent and the Pats did not.

    Well..as we know now..the Pat have CAP Room and the Jets are in CAP hell so Felger's assumption that equal money was being spent was not accurate.

    But...that's Talk Radio..

    Felger is what he is (with apologies to BB) and that is a contrarian.  My only real problem with him, apart from his pathologically annoying voice, is what appears to be a very needy ego that seems to drive him to present as though he were the story.

    I can't tell whose voice is mor eannoying, Felger or Mazz. It's like they wanted the two most annoying personalities with the worst voices on the radio.

     

     



    Yep.

    I feel bad for Ordway really. He basically built EEI and Boston sports radio since as far as I can remember (I'm still fairly young). He actually hired most of the people that now run the station. There is no loyalty in business but for everything he did this was sad, and it's not like he was pulling bad ratings either. Now, I'm a big 98.5 fan but Ordway was a staple for a long time and it won't be the same around Boston without him.

     



    Eddie Andelman





    The first thing Ordway did after being named program director at WEEI back in the 90's was to move Eddie Andleman out of/and insert himself into the afternoon drive slot. Second thing he did was team Eddie up with Dale Arnold at midday, arguably the worst, most mismatched pairing in sports radio talk history. It was like an arranged marriage where both spouses barely tolerated one another. For the rest of of his time on 'EEI, Andleman was miserable

    I hope, after the news broke yesterday about Ordway's shitcanning, that Andleman enjoyed a moment or two of schadenfreude

    Haha

    Sarandis was awful, I agree. Most nights, I swear, he sounded like someone doing a parody of a sports talk host. His obsession with NCAA basketball was a real turn off to me. He was a big know-it-all with a dumb radio announcer voice 

    Andleman was an "entertainer". If you went in looking for serious sports talk on his show, you went away disappointed. He was better on Sunday nights with his buddies, Mark and Jim

    Edit: Never liked goody-two-shoes Dale either

    I don't receive Boston radio so I'm stuck with Dale Duff and Clem LaBree but when I first saw Glenn Ordway on tv, he gave me a feeling of deja vu. That voice was so familiar but I couldn't place it. It wasn't until later on after I looked up his bio that I realized who the voice was that was coming from that unfamiliar face. He was the voice beside the legendary Johhny Most "Bird fiddles and diddles" on the Celtics broadcast.
